Fashion guru Tim Gunn is thoroughly revolted by Kim Kardashian’s new book of selfie photos, titled “Selfish.” How bad does he find it? Would you believe “disgusting and vile?” But that’s not the half of it.

Gunn offered his pungent review during a video interview with USWeekly’s Travis Cronin.

“Blagh,” Gunn said making a face and sticking out his tongue when Cronin showed him the book. “It’s only because of Travis that I’m sitting here with this book; out of loyalty to him. Because otherwise, I would be run for my life.

“Could I just say something to all the young people out there in particular; banish this!” he pleaded. Find an antidote to it, this is disgusting and vile. What if this is the only thing that survives in the time capsule.”

The “Project Runway” judge read passages from the book and lampooned Kardashian’s self-infatuation and banality. “I took a selfie at a red light while driving. I think that’s illegal now,” Gunn noted, “Well, she’s illegal.”

Gunn professed that he has nothing against shapely women, but thought the photos of her body parts were over the top.

“I feel my IQ is plummeting,” he said after reading another passage and viewing a photo of Kim’s breast in a see-through blouse.
