Tim Gunn Says the Kardashians Have an "Aura of Yuck," Calls Kanye West's Designs "Basic"

Pin It
Whoa! We know what Tim Gunn is definitely NOT doing on Sunday nights: Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

In this new HuffPost Live interview, the Project Runway mentor was asked how he felt about Kanye West's foray into fashion and let's just say he's not a fan. "I think they're a bunch of dumb clothes," he said of Yeezy's designs. "Just basic pieces. He won't [like that], but let me tell you, the whole Kardashian clan doesn't like me, so no surprise there."

When he was asked why he isn't a fan of the entire Kardashian clan, Tim wasn't shy about sharing his opinion. "There are large issues for me...such as why? Why?" he began. "When it comes to fashion, I say to people all the time - if you want guidance for fashion, just consider this - if a Kardashian is wearing it, don't!"

"I think it's vulgar," he continued. "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!"

And as far as Kendall Jenner's hugely successful modeling career, Tim had something to say about that, too. When asked if he thought Kendall had "it," he said, "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 just feel that she's tainted by the Kardashian aura of yuck!"

Tell us how you really feel, Tim!

Of course Tim isn't alone. Rebel Wilson recently revealed that she was asked to present with Kendall and Kylie Jenner at the MTV VMAs and she refused. "Not that you hate them individually, but it's something where what they stand for is totally against what I stand for...like...They seem a bit superficial and their career isn't really based on talent," she said on the Kyle and Jackie O Show earlier this week.
