Kelly Cutrone is a very well-known fashion publicist in the industry and owns People’s Revolution, a PR and branding firm w/ offices in NY, LA and Paris. She stars in her own reality show, “Kell On Earth,” and recently penned If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You. The lady has a mouth on her, to say the least. Can we say, shoots from the hip? Peep her Page Six interview below:
Is there anyone you just couldn’t work with?
Philippe Starck. I love his designs, but I just found him to be ridiculous. We went into a meeting, and he started rattling on about how there should be a parade with a hundred people wearing masks of his face, and how the public needed to know him because he could make a toothbrush chic. I actually got up in the middle of the meeting and was like, ‘This is not for us. He doesn’t like me, I don’t like him. I’m out.’?”
The Fashion world is obsessed with Lady Gaga. Are you a fan?
I don’t really care for her. I know everybody thinks she’s really great, and fashion people are happy because she’s one of the few girls who will wear a look off the runway. But having grown up with people like Debbie Harry and Alice Cooper and Kiss, I just don’t really see anything very original about what she’s doing. I don’t like her style. I find it to be very violent. She looks like Dolly Parton after a murder.
What do you think of Michelle Obama as a style icon? She’s cool. She has done her part for the fashion industry as an intelligent, beautiful first lady. It’s about time we had a hot first lady. It’s the first time in 50 years that people look like they’ve had sex in the White House. Full story here.
Kelly quotables…”You can’t know what it’s like to feel holy until you know what it’s like to feel really fucking evil. And you can’t be birthed again until you’ve died.”
“Sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your soul needs most.”
“You may wanna kiss her on the cheek, but put a gun to her back to make sure she stands up straight.”
“And I think between the ages of 15 and 32, don’t worry about getting married, don’t worry about settling down, don’t worry about having a baby. Give birth to yourself.”
