Giorgio Armani Calls Out Gay Men For Dressing 'Homosexual'

"A man has to be a man."

Looks like Giorgio Armani's been taking notes from the Karl Lagerfeld book of controversial quotes.

In a recent interview with London's Sunday Times, the 80-year-old expressed some pretty harsh criticisms towards gay men who dress too "homosexual."

The Italian fashion designer, who's dressed everyone from Beyonce to Cate Blanchett and Megan Fox, told the Times magazine, "A homosexual man is a man 100 per cent. He does not need to dress homosexual.

"When homosexuality is exhibited to the extreme -- to say: 'Ah, you know I'm homosexual,' -- that has nothing to do with me. A man has to be a man."

Yikes. Folks all over the Twitterverse weren't too impressed with the designer's comments.

In the interview, Armani also had a few things to say about women who choose to get breast enlargements and men who work out too much.

"A small breast does not have to become big," he explained.

"I prefer to look at a natural woman. A woman should be courageous to become older, not be desperate to look younger than her age. With time, a woman's body is better. As a woman goes to work, has babies, she is strong. She has character. Look at Cate Blanchett.

The fashion icon also added, "I don't like muscle boy. Not too much gym. I like somebody healthy, somebody solid, who looks after his body but doesn't use his muscles too much."

He sure wasn't holding back. And while we understand that he's entitled to his opinion, we don't necessarily agree.

The way we see it, men and women, gay or straight (or bi or trans) should be able to dress however they like. The same goes with body augmentations -- if you want to do it, go for it! Your body is your body.
