Givenchy Designer Riccardo Tisci Names Kim Kardashian the Modern Day Marilyn Monroe


Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci believes that Kim Kardashian isn’t just a star, she’s the modern day Marilyn Monroe.

In a recent interview with The Sunday Times, Riccardo offers up his thoughts on the reality star, saying:

 “I met her as the girlfriend of a good friend,” shared Tisci, referring to his close pal Kanye West. “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.”

He continued:

“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.”

Well…do you agree?
