Chanel Weighs In On France’s Gay Marriage Debate With Two Haute Couture Brides

While gay marriage remains controversial in France, it’s at least in style with the country’s fashion industry.

After French Elle dedicated its latest issue to marriage equality, noted vampire and Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld made a sartorial statement all his own.

Traditionally in haute couture, a bride will close the show. But today, during Chanel’s couture presentation at Paris’ Grand Palais, the ponytailed one sent two brides down the runway, hand-in-hand, along with model Brad Koening’s son (and Lagerfeld’s godson), Hudson.

“I don’t even understand the debate. Since 1904 (in France) the church and state have been separate,” Lagerfeld told The Associated Press after the show. “If (those against) want a sacred religious union, (they can) in the church, temple, cathedral, synagogue or mosque.”

Though Lagerfeld supports gay marriage, according to the AP, he’s against gay adoption…and most children in general.

French President Fran├žois Hollande will meet with opponents of the proposed same-sex marriage bill on Friday.
