Kim Kardashian the next Coco Chanel? We don’t think so, but apparently Kanye West does.

According to RadarOnline, West is convinced that his fiancé can become the next Coco Chanel… but only if she studies hard enough! “Kanye truly believes Kim can be the next Coco Chanel if she puts her mind to it,” a source told the website. “[Kim] has spent the past year quietly and secretly educating herself on the subject of ultra-high fashion at Kanye’s behest.” The source said that Kardashian has had sit downs with Kate and Laura Mulleavy of luxury brand Rodarte in order to really learn how to be a class act.

We have to admit, since Kardashian started dating West, she has definitely upped her style game. We’ve seen her in Calvin Klein, Dolce and Gabanna and Lanvin — a far cry from when she used to wear zipper leggings and flip flops. But let’s be honest, even when we love the way Kardashian dresses, she’s no Coco Chanel. Chanel was a visionary who created a lifestyle with her clothing. She designed pieces that still, to this day, are considered must-haves. We’re sorry, but it doesn’t look like Kardashian can live up to that sort of reputation, no matter how many Chanel suits she has or how many times she sits down with Karl Lagerfeld.

We guess it’s nice that West thinks so highly of his girl, but to be honest, it sounds a bit insulting. Can’t Kim just pick out what she wants to wear and just do her? Remember, there’s few things more worse than changing yourself for a man, Kim.
