Kanye West has ‘problems’ with Kim Kardashian’s ‘sexualized’ Skims ads

Kanye West isn’t much of a Skims fan.

During his extended interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News Thursday night, the Yeezy designer focused on his ex-wife’s billion-dollar shapewear and underwear brand.

“I had a lot of problems with the images of Skims,” ​​West, 45, said during the chat.

“I felt like there were a lot of images that were overly sexualized and things I wouldn’t want to see my wife, and certainly not my daughters, do in the future to sell products.”

West and Kardashian, 41, share four children – including daughters North, 9 and Chicago, 4, who have both made cameos in Skims campaigns, albeit dressed in relatively conservative loungewear.

West was instrumental in getting Skims off the ground in 2019, when the couple were still married; at the 2019 New York Times DealBook conference, Kardashian called West the brand’s “ghost creative director,” crediting him with drawing the Skims logo, hiring photographers and models, and even directing packaging. .

“Skims is so based on a lot of the Yeezy ideas,” West told Carlson. “I had to use my fashion relationships to establish Kim so that fashionable people would say, ‘I’m ready to wear Kim’s line.'”

But it seems West wasn’t ready to watch his wife model, say, crotchless catsuits and teeny-tiny bikinis and tap Kourtney Kardashian and Megan Fox to pose topless.

The “problems” of the “Runaway” rapper with the Skims shoots echo his complaints about Kardashian’s “dripping wet”, tight-corseted 2019 Met Gala look from Thierry Mugler, whom he called “too sexy” on an episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” that year.

“A corset is a form of underwear. It’s hot. But for whom?” West told his then-wife at the time, adding that the sultry style was “influencing” [his] soul and [his] spirit as one who is married and [a] father.”

While speaking with Carlson, West also expressed his disapproval with Kardashian’s internet-breaking Interview magazine cover, for which the reality star bared her ass in a jockstrap.

“Kim is a Christian, but she has people who want her to go to Interview magazine and stick her ass out while she’s a 40-year-old multi-billionaire with four black kids,” he said. “And that’s how fashion wants to present it.”

West, for his part, presented something quite shocking at his Yeezy show during Paris Fashion Week Monday, sending T-shirts printed with “White Lives Matter” down the catwalk. The designs have been widely denounced by both within and outside the fashion industry.
