In an interview with The Sunday Times, Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci called Kim Kardashian the Marilyn Monroe of our age.

"I met her as the girlfriend of a good friend," said Tisci. "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."

It’s not the first time Kim has been compared to Marilyn Monroe – Kanye himself drew the comparison last November. At the time Kanye was quoted in a Hot 97 interview as saying, “Kate Upton ain't Marilyn Monroe, Kim is Marilyn Monroe.”

For all the Kim K haters who are going mental at the imagined insult, can we just add that these are two personalities who have made careers out of their sex icon status? Neither of them are angels, and neither need apologists.
