In an interview with the Financial Times Grace Coddington, the legendary creative director of Vogue magazine gave a very backhanded compliment to Kim Kardashian says Rob Shuter of VH-1’s “The Gossip Table,” comparing the reality star's appeal to gasp, ordinary people on the subway!

Coddington, 73 who became an accidental star when she appeared in the documentary about Vogue magazine called “The September Issue,” explained that originally editor Anna Wintour pondered using a lookalike couple for a wedding story.

“I thought, ‘Why not just do it on the real thing? This is Vogue. And I do think Kim Kardashian represents this moment in our culture. I’m fascinated by her, in the same way I’m fascinated by the people I see on the street or the subway.”

But Coddington only has kind words to say about the shooting experience describing Kim as “very professional,” and baby North as “very well-behaved. We did millions of pictures and she did not cry once. I got quite upset we did not have the baby on the cover.”

North may not have cried but that’s not to say she was completely perfect. Kardashian revealed on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” she peed on her Dad Kanye during the shoot.
