Chanel Couture Show Closes With Two Brides In Support of French Marriage Equality Law

French couture shows typically close with a bridal look, but tradition has change with the times, which was never more apparent than the finale of Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel Couture 2013 show in Paris. Lagerfeld ended his show with two brides walking down the runway together.

Lagerfeld told the Associated Press that although he supports gay marriage - "I don't even understand the debate [in France]. Since 1904 the church and state have been separate." - he's not in favor of a provision in the law which makes adoption legal for same-sex couples. He didn't say why. Although LGBT adoption is a relatively uncontested aspect of gay family creation in the U.S., it's not a common practice in France.

I am a little confused however. How can he support one and not the other?
