(Paris, France) -- Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld's fat could be in the fire, legally speaking. A group of women has filed a lawsuit in France against him for "defamatory and discriminatory comments" against overweight women. Their name translates to "Beautiful, Round, Sexy, and Okay with It." Last year, Lagerfeld called singer Adele "a little too fat" and he has blamed French economic problems on fat people wasting the country's revenue. The group hopes the case will focus attention on the damaging effects the fashion industry's standards have on models' health and customers' self-esteem.
