Tim Gunn has a point

The oft soft-spoken host of Project Runway brought out the claws and is lashing out at the Kardashians calling their skin-tight, butt-enhancing and cleavage-bearing outfits, “largely vulgar” and that their look “has a cheapness and tawdriness [to it].” If you’re wondering what could have drew the ire of Tim, it’s the special collection the Kardashians designed for Bebe which they unveiled during last month’s Fashion Week.

When asked whether he supported the Kardashian Bebe spring line, a mix of jumpsuits and revealing one-shouldered dresses, Gunn told wonderwall.msn.com that the clothes didn’t talk to him.

“I just think the Kardashians have an absence of taste and I don’t think that that should be perpetuated,” he said. “I’m sorry I’m sounding like an old farty, snob, but it bothers me.”

Although he’s clearly no fan of their fashion taste or “how they navigate the world,” Gunn did have one nice thing to say about Kim — kind of.

“She’s pretty, but she’s a poser,” he told Behar, referring to the way Kim mugs for the camera. “I find that when she’s static and still, she has an attractiveness. I find that when she’s moving, it all goes away for me.”

Tim is right. The Kardashian’s are mostly trashy, but that’s what makes them so great. That they revel in it. There’s an attainability to them. Knowing that they look just like the prostitutes that pick you up at the bar and who steal your money while their pimp holds you down is comforting in a way.
