Hervé Leger Fires Designer Who Said Fatties & Gays Shouldn't Wear Bandage Dresses


Patrick Couderc, the man who declared only stick-straight women should wear Hervé Leger’s band-aid dresses, has been fired.

Over the weekend, Couderc was quoted saying “voluptuous” women and women with “very prominent hips and a very flat chest” should avoid the bandage look. He added that he refuses to give reality show stars (read: Kim Kardashian and family) who love the dress free gear and that if you’re “a committed lesbian and you are wearing trousers all your life, you won’t want to buy a Leger dress” because lesbians are “rather butch and leisurely.” Oh, and old broads should steer clear of the Leger dress because, you know, olds ruin things.


Now, he’s been let go for his comments, according to a statement the fashion house gave US Weekly. Did Couderc think this would end any other way?

“The Herve Leger by Max Azria brand and its parent company, BCBGMAXAZRIA Group, are shocked and appalled by Patrick Couderc’s comments made in The Mail on Sunday,” the label shared with Us Weekly in a statement. “The statements made by Mr. Couderc are not a reflection of Herve Leger by Max Azria or MJH Fashion ideals or sentiments. The Herve Leger by Max Azria brand celebrates sensuality, glamour, and femininity without discrimination.”

Keep those Kardashian koins klose.
