Herve Leger’s UK Director Patrick Couderc has banned the likes of Nene Leakes, Kim Kardashian, Blac Chyna as well as lesbians and older women from wearing his brand.
In a recent interview with Daily Mail, Couderc stated women with 'voluptuous' figures, i.e. those with 'very prominent hips' should avoid wearing the beloved bandage dress. If you’re lacking in the breast department, Couderc advises that the popular dress is not for you either. As if he didn’t do enough damage, Couderc continued to blaze through his interview with dangerous comments regarding women who are older and who don’t have a particular body shape — the shape his dresses were made for.
“You women have a lot of problems. You will lose the plot. You will come and you will put a dress on and you’ll be in front of the mirror, like, ‘Argh, I’m so fat.’ Yes, you have a 12th of an inch around your stomach, it’s not really a disaster, and what you’re not noticing is that your cleavage is about two inches too low because you are 55 and it’s time that you should not display everything like you’re 23,'' Couderc stated
Couderc also believes lesbians shouldn’t wear dresses if they’re committed lesbians. “If you’re a committed lesbian and you are wearing trousers all your life, you won’t want to buy a Leger dress. Lesbians would want to be rather butch and leisurely.”
Couderc concluded by stating he believes there is a distinct difference between women who wear and don’t wear pantyhose: one works in a corporate workforce and the other shampoos hair at the salon. He also shared, he rather have women like Sex And City’s actress Kim Cattrall (Samatha) to wear his clothing, which is why he won’t send free dresses to celebrities who lack class.
