Karl Lagerfeld gives Kim Kardashian a massive backhanded compliment

But a compliment all the same, right?

In case you didn’t know, Kim Kardashian West has her own video game. We can’t say we’ve actually played it (and TBH, WTF would you even DO in a KKW video game?!) but anyone who’s anyone has made a cameo appearance. Got to admit, seeing yourself in cartoon form would be pretty rad. The latest ‘somebody’ to join Kim on her quest for digital domination is fashion royalty, Karl Lagerfeld, and can we just say, they’ve nailed his character. Of course, his self-titled collection will also feature on the app, with every piece being shoppable IRL. SMART!

In a statement following the news of this new collaboration Karl said, "Kim's contribution to beauty and fashion — and what made her such an icon - is the fact that you don't have to be super slim and very tall to be beautiful," adding that she has succeeded in giving “girls like her” body confidence where others may have failed. Um… thanks? We all know he fancies her younger, slimmer sister, Kendall, casting her in pretty much every Chanel show he’s done since she cracked the modelling industry and apparently is a big fan of Momager, Kris, who regularly sits front row at said shows.

We wonder when he plans on meeting the rest of the clan. RELATED: Kim Kardashian reveals how she persued Kanye after her divorce RELATED: Rebel Wilson is against "everything" the Kardashians stand for RELATED VIDEO: Watch Kim Kardashian's makeup artist overdraw her lip line
