Though he feels sorry for what happened, the Chanel creative director thinks the 35-year-old should not be flashing her diamonds on Instagram.

“It’s a very bad thing for Paris, but I don’t understand why she was in a hotel with no security and things like this,” he told reporters. “If you’re that famous and you put all your jewelry on the net, you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room. You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you.”
