"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."
