(AllHipHop News) Another day, another celebrity throwing shots at Kanye West. Over the last month actress/Fox News contributor Stacey Dash, Revenge star Nick Wechsler, and former Roc-A-Fella boss Dame Dash have all found a reason to publicly criticize Kanye. Now America’s Next Top Model judge Kelly Cutrone has given her opinion on Ye to the New York Daily News.
“I don’t think there’s one person who really works in the fashion industry who gives a flying f**k about Kanye West,” said Cutrone.
The fashion insider acknowledges West and his wife Kim Kardashian’s impact on pop culture, but she adds that Kim and Kanye are not major players in the fashion industry despite their celebrity status and prominence on television.
“I think they have no influence in the fashion world whatsoever,” she said. “I mean, most people who watch the Kardashians’ (reality show) can’t afford Givenchy. I don’t mean to be mean… Are (counterfeiters) on Canal St. benefiting from it? Probably, but that’s not the fashion world.”
It would be safe to assume Kanye strongly disagrees with Cutrone’s assessment. The G.O.O.D. Music head told On Air with Ryan Seacrest last year that he believed the duo known as KimYe are the most influential fashion couple in the world.
“Collectively, we’re the most influential because it’s true, especially with clothing. Nobody’s looking at what [Barack Obama] is wearing. Michelle Obama can’t Instagram a pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day,” said Kanye.
How West and Cutrone define “influence” could be the difference between the two entertainment business veteran’s views. According Cutrone, fashion heavyweights are not concerned with Kanye’s style.
“Do I think that (Vogue editor-at-large) Hamish Bowles wakes up in the morning, calls (former Vogue editor-at-large) Andre Leon Talley and says, ‘Did you see those pants that Kanye was rocking on SNL?’ No,” stated Cutrone.
