At last night’s FIT Couture Council summer party, we asked Patricia Field about the “David Cameron got fat” comments she reportedly made last week. What was that all about, anyway? Allow her to explain:
I have this project with a Proctor & Gamble company that’s in Great Britain called Lenor. It’s a fabric softener. So I was there doing my thing, press, and some journalist showed me pictures of different people to make remarks. I don’t like to do that normally; I don’t like making remarks about people. [Anyway,] they showed me this picture of David, and I had noticed that he had put on some weight. He was always sort of a good-looking guy, whether I agree with him politically - I have enough problems in America with politics, I don’t even know what’s going on — so I said, “Well, it looks like he put some weight on. He used to be more attractive. When I first saw him, I thought, that’s a good looking man.” Well, they went nuts over there in England. They said I said that he globs food and he’s fat. You know, I don’t use words like that. Anyway, it probably died down because they’ve got bigger problems.
