Anna Wintour is not impressed.
The Vogue editor-in-chief was speaking to students at London's Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design when she revealed her dislike for the red carpet gowns she saw at this month's Tony Awards.
"God, they need your help," the 64-year-old said about the attendees. "Let me tell you, it was a disaster."
The London-born editor brought daughter Bee Shaffer to the June 8 broadcast and though she wasn't pleased by this year's parade of gowns, Anna doesn't blame a fashion misstep entirely on the celebrity.
"The red carpet, in the United States, has become too much of a business," she pointed out. "It's a fact that celebrities are paid to wear everything, and to me that sometimes comes across as very manufactured and not individual."
She added, "How many mermaid fishtail strapless sequins [gowns] can we see?"
But it's not just the lure of money that gets the stars going. It's the fear of ending up on a worst dressed list!
"[Celebrities] have all these teams of people telling them what to do, what to wear, how to do their hair, make-up. And they're so scared of being criticized, whereas, you know, what's wrong with looking different?" Anna asked the assembled group.
Talking to the students about becoming successful designers, the Brit also warned them not to expect to dress celebs overnight and reveled catwalks are, in fact, overrated.
