WATCH: Tim Gunn Call Kanye West’s Fashion Line ‘Basic’, Thinks ‘Nothing’ of Kendall Jenner
Basic Season 1?
The host of Project Runway is putting Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 1 collection under the Gunn in an interview with HuffPost Live, speaking out on his fashion, the Kardashian clan, and whether or not Kendall Jenner has what it takes to be considered an ‘It Girl’ of fashion.
Tim Gunn describes West’s fashion line as “a bunch of dumb clothes”, asserting that his designs are “just basic pieces”. He does not hide the Kardashian’s distaste for his own persona, doling out the fashion advice of, “If you want guidance in fashion, just consider this: if a Kardashian is wearing it—don’t.”
“Given the amount of public exposure that the Kardashians have to potentially be sending the message to people that you too can dress like this, no!”
He thinks “nothing” of newly-winged Victoria’s Secret model, Kendall. “I’m assuming there’s a huge, perhaps million dollars a month, publicity wagon that is pulling these girls along and creating these lives for them,” says Gunn. “I’m distrustful of it and I find it all distasteful.”
The fashionisto believes that the only remedy to the Kardashian’s “aura of yuck” is the sophisticated style of Malia and Sasha Obama. “They’re not trying to look older than they are and they’re not trying to look younger, and of course they have the best fashion mentor in the world right there with them, their mother,” says Gunn. “I worship Mrs. Obama — in many different ways — including as a fashion icon!”
