OUT OF FASHION

Karl Lagerfeld has made Robert Altman do a little tailoring on his film spoof of the fashion industry.

The fashion designer sued last week to stop the German distribution of "Ready to Wear" because of a scene in which he's described as a thief.

The offending word has been removed from the German-dubbed film, and the subbed version will open today in Hamburg and Berlin, according to distributors Senator Film.

"Only one word has been changed. For legal reasons we can't say what the change was, because that would be the same as telling you, 'This is where the original said 'thief,' " said Barbara Schmidt, a spokeswoman for the distributor.

Lagerfeld is also trying to get the text changed in the French version of the movie.
