Is Kim Kardashian More Influential than Michelle Obama?

November 04, 2013 2 min read

Original DailyMail here As Kanye West statements go, it's probably one of his most absurd. The lovestruck rapper talked up fiancee Kim Kardashian in a new interview in which he claimed the reality star is more influential in terms of style than the First Lady Of The United States Michelle Obama. TV personality Kim Kardashian, fiance Kanye West says when it comes to fashion, Kim Kardashian reigns supreme over every woman, including Michelle Obama He told Ryan Seacrest:
'There's no way Kim Kardashian shouldn't be on the cover of Vogue. 'She's like the most intriguing woman right now. She's got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday,' he said.
And bizarrely he claimed the reason Kim was more influential that Michelle Obama, was because the First Lady could not share a bikini pic like Kim's recent bottom-baring pose in a white swimsuit. On that point he is right, as we've never seen the First Lady's bottom in a selfie. While Michelle Obama will clearly not want to take on that challenge, it seems Kanye is still fuming at Kim being persistently overlooked by his friend Anna Wintour for a Vogue covershoot. The Vogue editrice is a big fan of Michelle Obama, who has been pictured on the cover twice. Vogue describe Mrs. Obama's style as 'bold and unapologetic.' And she is widely seen as a champion for American fashion designers, bringing new designers like Jason Wu into the fashion spotlight. Michelle Obama has graced two Vogue covers and gained plaudits for her style as First Lady, while Kim, seen on the cover of CR fashion Book has been snubbed by editor Anna Wintour. 'Her approach to dressing has earned her a reputation as something of a fashion maverick- particularly in Washington, D.C., where women have traditionally valued conformity over individuality.' kim_mich She herself simply says: 'Women should wear whatever makes them feel good about themselves.'  And while Kim has certainly become something of a cultural phenomenon in recent years, it seems that her influence has not extended to the ivory towers of the fashion bible.  Kanye revealed he was delighted when Kim was chosen to cover CR Fashion Book, the new publication by Former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfe.  'Carine Roitfeld supports my girl. That's a breakthrough,' he explained. 'There's a wall of classism that we are breaking through.' Maybe the memo hasn't reached Anna Wintour just yet. Or maybe the memo hasn't reached Kanye.
