Tell us how you REALLY feel, Kelly Cutrone!
Sure, there are all sorts of varied opinions on the ways Kim Kardashian and Kanye West influence or don't influence the fashion world.
But this latest opinion is all sorts of HARSH!
Kelly Cutrone, a renowned fashion publicist, recently dished on how she sees — and how she feels others see — Kimye in fashion. And she did NOT hold back!
The 48-year-old expert first ranted about Yeezus, saying:
"I don’t think there’s one person who really works in the fashion industry who gives a flying f*ck about Kanye West. I think they have no influence in the fashion world whatsoever. I mean, most people who watch the [Keeping Up with the] Kardashians can’t afford Givenchy. I don’t mean to be mean. Are [counterfeiters] on Canal St. benefiting from it? Probably, but that’s not the fashion world."
Fair enough, but she can't ignore the fact that 'Ye IS good friends with Vogue editor Anna Wintour, besties with Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, and has created multiple sold-out fashion lines!
Even so, Kelly didn't stop there. She also went on to tear Kim Kardashian down a peg, saying that her style isn't cutting edge enough.
“There’s a movie called Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Givenchy is a good brand, but is it cutting edge? No. It’s a gazillion-year-old luxury brand from Europe. Have Kim and Kanye had an impact on pop culture? Absolutely. Do I think that [Vogue editor-at-large] Hamish Bowles wakes up in the morning, calls [former Vogue editor-at-large] André Leon Talley and says, ‘Did you see those pants that Kanye was rocking on SNL?’ No. The truth of the matter is that Kim Kardashian is not doing anything fresh in fashion, either. She’s not getting into the nitty-gritty, super avant-garde players. She’s not even wearing [Vivienne] Westwood yet."
So apparently even Givenchy isn't good enough!! No one is safe!
And even though Miz Cutrone claims that no one in the fashion industry cares about Kimye, she obviously cares enough about them to know that Kim hasn't been wearing Vivienne Westwood!
That HAS to mean she cares just a little bit, right??
