*Kanye West is looking for the same amount of respect in the fashion world that he demands in the entertainment field – but he won’t get it from Kelly Cutrone.
“I’m not into his fashion thing,” the fashion publicist bluntly told People following his Adidas collection at NY Fashion Week. “I think he’s fine as a rapper. I think he’s a joke as a fashion designer.”
Cutrone, a judge on “America’s Next Top Model,” thinks Kim Kardashian’s husband, 37, should just stick to music.
“I just think that you should stay focused at what you’re good at. Just because you’re a good rapper doesn’t mean you’re going to be a good fashion designer. I mean, we’ve seen that over and over,” she added before pointing out that Diddy’s Sean John was a successful brand but few coveted the clothes.
And when asked about West’s new Yeezy sneakers that droves of people stood in line for, Cutrone wasn’t impressed.
“I mean, it’s not, he’s not legit. Have you seen the product?” she said. “Didn’t he have his own line in London, which was a disaster that he spent $10 million to do, that no one wore?”
