A recent interview with Tim Gunn, a well-known American fashion consultant, by the Huff Post highlights his views about the Kardashian family ‘Valguar’ taste in fashion and his uncertainty as to why they are so publically exposed. Has our society’s obsession driven their success?
When it comes to fashion he says “Just consider this, if a Kardashian is wearing it, don’t”. He believes they portray a bad example to women, and their style lacks authenticity and design.
Despite the fact that I undoubtedly agree with his statement, ironically enough, my hand goes up in shame as I admit that curiosity takes the better of me and I can’t help but ‘check up’ on their social media updates.
A close inspection into the term ‘addiction’ reveals that it is an act of enthusiasm when one is devoted to a particular thing or activity. I’m convinced that humans are a form of substance abuse, one person to another.
The spiral effect of addiction turns into obsession, you begin to ‘love to hate’, but still can’t get enough, continuously leaving you wanting more. The easy part is that you are aware of it and you recognise the flaw in it, but how do you stop? Or better yet, subconsciously do you actually want to stop?
Let no opportunity go to waste, if one thing can be admired about this brazen family is that you can always make something out of nothing, it just takes commitment, persistence, and possibly some good genes.
