Anna Wintour is not impressed!
"The red carpet, in the United States, has become too much of a business. It's a fact that celebrities are paid to wear everything, and to me that sometimes comes across as very manufactured and not individual. I was just recently at the Tony Awards in New York, and, God, they need your help. Let me tell you, it was a disaster … [Celebrities] have all these teams of people telling them what to do, what to wear, how to do their hair, makeup. And they're so scared of being criticized, whereas, you know, what's wrong with looking different? How many mermaid fishtail strapless sequin [gowns] can we see?"
Besides judging red carpet looks, she also has some advice for aspiring designers.
"In today's world you have to interact. You can't really be some difficult, shy person who is not able to look somebody in the face: you have to present yourself. You have to know how to talk about your vision, your focus and what you believe in. If you can't be passionate about who you are and what you are doing, how can they be?"
She even urges less established designers to focus on giving a good, intimate presentation rather than worrying about having a glamorous fashion show that costs a lot of money. She explained:
"Please listen to me when I say: an interesting creative presentation is just as effective as a fashion show. I see people who are paying hundreds of thousands of dollars [for] fashion shows, which I simply don't think is necessary. A presentation gives us all an opportunity to meet you, rather than to go and sit in some dark room somewhere and wait for you to start; then [have] no time to say hello, and rush off to the next one."
She knows what she's talking about! Don't take her advice for granted, aspiring designers!
