Paris - German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld on Tuesday used the finale of his Chanel haute couture show in Paris to signal his support for gay marriage.

At the end of his spring 2013 show in Paris's vast Grand Palais, two models in long white gowns with trains swept in accompanied by a small boy.

Speaking backstage after the show, Lagerfeld confirmed that it was intended as a show of support for gay marriage although he added that he was "less supportive" of what he called gay couples "ordering babies".

"I am not so crazy about that," he told reporters.

Asked about news the disgraced British designer John Galliano had been thrown a lifeline by fellow designer Oscar de la Renta, Lagerfeld said he hoped "something positive comes out of it for him".

Galliano was sacked by Christian Dior and convicted last year in France of anti-Semitism after a video emerged of him hurling insults at people in a Paris bar.

"He made a mistake, but you cannot pay forever," Lagerfeld said.
