Karl Lagerfeld has called Adele "a little too fat", but complimented her voice and "beautiful face".
He made the statements in an interview with Metro New York - which the Head of the Chanel fashion house was also guest-editing - while comparing the British songstress with Lana Del Rey.
"I prefer Adele and Florence Welch [to Del Rey], but as a modern singer, she is not bad.
"The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice. Lana del Rey is not bad at all. She looks very much like a modern-time singer.
"In her photos she is beautiful. Is she a construct with all her implants? She's not alone with implants."
The comments are unlikely to bother the singer, who has seen her latest album, 21, become the biggest selling record of the past 12 months, with no sign of slowing down.
The Daily Mail quotes the singer as previously saying:
"I enjoy being me; I always have done. Ive seen people where it rules their lives, you know, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down. And I just dont want that in my life.
"Its just never been an issue at least, Ive never hung out with the sort of horrible people who make it an issue.
"I have insecurities of course, but I dont hang out with anyone who points them out to me."
