When Kanye West called Kim Kardashian the modern day Marilyn Monroe, we all guffawed. But now respected Givenchy designer Ricardo Tisci has done it too.
Speaking to the Sunday Times, Ricardo said of Kim, "I met her as the girlfriend of a good friend."
"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."
Ricardo went on to discuss how he admires people - including Kim and Kanye - not because of their beauty, but on the basis of their talents, roots and intelligence.
So what do you think? Is Kim Kardashian a modern Marilyn? Or are Kanye and Ricardo off the mark with this one?
