Speaking to nydailynews.com, America’s Next Top Model judge, Kelly Cutrone, slammed both Kim Kardashian and Kanye West stating “I think they have no influence in the fashion world whatsoever”. Strong words indeed against one of the most covered couples in popular culture history.
Bringing some brevity to her statement she followed with; “I mean, most people who watch 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.” I think she raises a very valid point and one which we can all take something away from, true fashion, is fashion that is accessible to everyone not only the rich and famous. She goes on to further state that Givenchy has been known as a luxury brand for quite awhile and wearing it is not really progressing modern fashion in any way.
All that being said she can’t deny the cultural impact that ‘KimYe’ have had on the world but for Kanye, who once regarded himself as being as important to the Fashion world as Steve Jobs was to technology, she had some rather hostile words which amounted to him not being regarded at all by the fashion industry.
