Paris (AFP) - Fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld blamed rural Britain on Saturday for pushing the country out of the European Union.

"Look who voted, it was the people from deep in the countryside, the big cities didn't want it at all," the often acid-tongued Chanel creator told AFP after the Dior men's catwalk show in Paris.

The German-born style guru known as "The Kaiser" dismissed Brexit as a passing moment of madness.

"It don't think it will work out, they may have another vote.

"I don't think it is a good idea. The analysis of the vote shows that it is a bad decision. We don't need to say much more about it."
