President Shimon Peres on Thursday made unusual comments on Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi during a meeting with students in the Bayit VeGan boarding house in Jerusalem.


Peres said that in his opinion Gaddafi should work for the Dior fashion house, whose chief designer John Galliano was recently fired over anti-Semetic slurs.


"Who needs this Gaddafi? I think he should have gone to work at Dior. He changes his outfit everyday, investing thousands of dollars in strange hats, crappy dresses, wasting his money… Who needs him? You tell me, what for?" Peres said.


This is not the first time the president discusses Gaddafi's fashion choices.


During a visit in Spain several weeks ago, Peres said that Gaddafi takes care only of himself and not his people. "You can see by his outfits how much he spends on clothing rather than on people."
