“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. 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?”

That's what Tim Gunn said in an interview with the New York Daily News at the Land’s End popup store on Fifth Avenue in New York.

Oh, but the refined and ever so lovable Project Runway mentor didn’t stop there.

Of Kanye West, Gunn said, “I’m on record having said (his fashions) are basic, what a dear friend of mine Grace Mirabella (former editor in chief of Vogue) calls, dumb clothes. It’s not fashion. 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.”

Yep, Tim Gunn kept it harshly real, adding that he was “horrified” when Caitlyn Jenner said at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards that choosing what to wear was the toughest decision women have to make.

“I thought, really? I think if you asked most other women that it’s not going to be on the tip of their tongue,” he said. “She’s like a dizzy broad.”
