Tim Gunn on The Kardashians: Yucky! Gross! Terrible!

by at .

Ah, so many opinions about the Kardashians.  And Kanye West.

The Kardashians & The Jenners

I find Project Runway star Tim Gunn to be delightful, but sometimes he gets a bit too opinionated and I'm like, "oh gurl."

Yesterday, Gunn appeared on Huffington Post Live and let verbal gold spill out of his mouth.

While no one will disagree that the Kardashians have one of the best pr strategies in Hollywood, Gunn is not impressed with anything they do.  Anything.

Don't get him started on West's collection for Adidas.

"I think they're a bunch of dumb clothes," Gunn said about the Yeezus collection.

"Just basic pieces.  He won’t [like that comment], but let me tell you, the whole Kardashian clan doesn’t like me, so no surprise there.”

It gets better.  

Gunn insists that if you're inspired to wear something because you see it on a Kardashian, don't.  Just don't.

“There are large issues [with the Kardashians] for me, such as why? Why?,” Gunn said. “But when it comes to fashion, I say to people all the time ‘If you want guidance in fashion, just consider this: If a Kardashian is wearing it, don’t.’ I think it’s vulgar.

"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!” 

What about Kendall Jenner, model-of-the-moment?

“I think absolutely nothing [of her] to be perfectly honest,” Gunn admitted. “And I’m assuming there’s a huge, perhaps million dollar-a-month publicity wagon that is pulling these girls along and creating these lives for them. I’m distrustful of it and I find it all distasteful.”


“I shouldn’t say that she doesn’t [have ‘it’]."

It = What Derek Zoolander has.

“I don’t know her — she may be a perfectly lovely young woman. I just feel that she’s tainted by the Kardashian aura of yuck!”

Oh hell, Tim Gunn.
