Fiancé Kanye West argues that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has more influence over what women wear than the First Lady herself.
36-year-old Kanye made the unlikely comparison during an interview with presenter Ryan Seacrest, when he argued that Kim, who he proposed to on her 33rd birthday last week, has more power and influence over women's fashion choices than the First Lady herself.
'She's like the most intriguing woman right now. She's got Barbara Walters calling her everyday', he gushed about the mother of his child, Kim, who owns a number of DASH clothing boutiques around the world as well as recently launching a new line for high-street brand Lipsy.
Kanye, who has collaborated with multiple luxury fashion brands, continued: 'Collectively, we're the most influential with clothing. No one is looking at what [President Barack Obama] is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day.'
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star famously hit the headlines earlier this month when she shared a revealing photo of her post-baby body on the social networking site.
The infamous selfie showed new mum Kim posing in a skimpy white swimsuit which showcased her world-famous derriere, just three months after giving birth to daughter North.
