Tim Gunn is taking aim once again at Kim Kardashian and her family, and he’s even dragging Kanye West into it this time. “I’m always saying to young people and actually even to adults, I don’t care what you wear as long as you don’t dress like a Kardashian. It’s vulgar, period,” Gunn tells Confidential. “But that’s what they are. I believe that their place in history will be because of this phenomenon that really is about nothing. And aren’t people getting bored of it?” It’s a fair question, honestly.
As for West, Gunn is less than impressed with his foray into life as a fashion designer. “I’m on record having said [his fashions] are basic, what a dear friend of mine [former Vogue editor] Grace Mirabella calls dumb clothes. It’s not fashion,” Gunn says. “They’re dumb clothes and they’re expensive, dumb clothes. I’ve always said the only thing dumber than his clothes is the people who buy them.”
