In Riccardo Tisci's opinion, Kim Kardashian isn't just a star, she's an icon.

In a recent interview with The Sunday Times, the Givenchy designer compared North West's mom to the legendary Marilyn Monroe. "I met her as the girlfriend of a good friend," shared Tisci, referring to his close pal Kanye West. "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."

The designer continues: "It's not so much the beauty of people, but the talent, the roots and the intelligence that concern me. I love people who are not scared to fight for their own rights and have their own point of view. The world is big: the music world is big, the art world is big and the fashion world is big, but I think you can recognize a tribe in the similarity of people."

This isn't the first time Tisci has publically praised the E! reality star. After designing Kim's floral gown at last year's Met Gala he gushed: "She looked amazing. She was the most beautiful pregnant woman I dress in my career."

It should be noted, that Tisci's kind words really come in a close second to Kim's own fiancé who previously declare her to be "the most beautiful woman of all time!"

There's no topping Yeezus.
