Prabal Gurung Hates Paris Hilton, Likes Women To Be Smart

Prabal Gurung is talented and great. He also doesn’t like bimbos. The designer told Rolling Stone how it bums him out when the media celebrates shallow women:

I’ve always loved intelligent girls, no matter how they look. To be able to hold a conversation with someone is so important. The moment someone acts dumb, I lose interest. I think about the subtext and layers of a person when I design. I design for someone who has interest in the space around her, who is aware of her relationship with the world, someone a little evolved, a little concerned. I think putting more women in power will help solve a lot of problems in the world. It troubles me that the media celebrate women acting like bimbos on TV — it’s not cute, it’s ridiculous. I call it “Paris Hilton Syndrome”; there’s a place for that superficiality — but it must neutralized by an equally powerful, intelligent counterforce in culture. I don’t want to perpetuate the wrong ideal. For integrity’s sake, say no to a lot of people who ask to wear our clothes!”

And here’s his collaboration with one of those non-bimbos, Rye Rye:
