Kim Kardashian‘s icon status just reached a whole new level, according to Riccardo Tisci. Tisci is the designer at Givenchy, and Kanye West‘s BFF, also good friends with Kim, so here he is praising the KUWTK starlet in a new interview.
Following in the footsteps of Kanye, who previously said that Kim is “ the most beautiful woman of all time“, Tisci is now comparing Kardashian with Marilyn Monroe.
Speaking about first meeting Kim, the Givenchy designer said: “I met her as the girlfriend of a good friend. I just wanted a moment with her to understand — and I fell in love. She’s the Monroe of our age. People think she’s like a doll, but actually she’s tough and clever.”
“It’s not so much the beauty of people, but the talent, the roots and the intelligence that concern me. I love people who are not scared to fight for their own rights and have their own point of view. The world is big: the music world is big, the art world is big and the fashion world is big, but I think you can recognize a tribe in the similarity of people,” he added.
Kanye will be so happy. Especially since he was the first to compare his baby mama to Marilyn. ‘Ye previously slammed Vanity Fair for choosing to have Kate Upton styled as Marilyn Monroe on the cover of their 100th issue.
“I have a love-hate relationship with the paparazzi, but actually I love them because they are empowering us. They are empowering us over Vanity Fair that want to say that Kate Upton is Marilyn Monroe. Kate Upton ain’t Marilyn Monroe, Kim is Marilyn Monroe,” he ranted at the time.
This is definitely debatable so share your thoughts in the comments section!
