Kelly Cutrone: Sex and the City ruined the world

Kelly Cutrone said that Sex and the City 'ruined the world'.
The former America's Next Top Model judge appeared on TV show The Hills and then had her own series Kell on Earth. Her straight-talking manner earned her a big reputation, but she insists she is just honest. Kelly wishes more people in the industry were like that, as she's tired of young girls thinking jobs in fashion are easy to come by and don't take hard work. She places the blame for this firmly at the door of Sarah Jessica Parker's TV show Sex and the City.
"Because Sex and the City ruined the world. And my proof of Sex and the City ruining the world was Fashion's Night Out. What was it? Girls in dresses with blow outs drinking Skinnygirl margaritas by Bethenny Frankel," she fumed. "The reason why they stopped it, go figure, nobody bought any clothes!
"No women that own multi-million companies sit around and talk about 'Mr Big' for two hours on brunch. They don't. I have a hundred million girlfriends and I have no idea what's going on with them in bed with the guys they're hanging out with. We're talking about what's really happening in their lives."
Fashion's Night Out is a global fashion festival organised by Vogue, with cities including London [UK], Paris, New York, Delhi and Beijing taking part this year. The New York City version is on hiatus.
The fashion PR guru also said that the industry will always need supermodels as they work for less than actresses.
Over the years there has been a big shift in the industry, which has seen more A-list stars take the covers of fashion magazines. It used to be solely supermodels who won that honour, but fashion PR guru Kelly isn't worried about the future of models.
"Do we always need great supermodels? Yes, we do. Why? Because celebrities won't do that much for that little," she laughed on HuffPost Live. "We can make the supermodel into the actress like Cameron Diaz but do you think Cameron Diaz is going to go shoot for $3,000 in big gowns, with Grace Coddington in Versailles? No. Probably not... And fur on the subway in a New York summer?"
