Kanye: Kardashian is fashion queen over first lady

NEW YORK — Kanye West says when it comes to fashion, Kim Kardashian reigns supreme over every woman, including Michelle Obama.
In an interview Tuesday with Ryan Seacrest, the rapper said he and his fiancé are "the most influential with clothing." He added: "Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day," referring to Kardashian's buzzed about selfie that revealed most of her backside.
West also said "no one is looking at what (Barack) is wearing."
West was defending Kardashian in the radio interview, saying the reality star deserves more attention from mainstream fashion magazines. He said Kardashian should grace the cover of Vogue.
Despite West's words, the first lady is a fashion trendsetter and clothes she's worn have sold out quickly after she's worn them in public.
