Roberto Cavalli: Anna Wintour Wants All Women to "Dress the Way She Does"

</ br>
>> Roberto Cavalli said Anna Wintour's personal style has influenced American fashion to a degree that makes it "terrible."

In an on-camera interview, La Repubblica asked Cavalli what advice he'd give to young people who want to work in fashion, and the 71-year-old designer said he wants to see less minimalism and monotony. Cavalli said that instead of following the advice of designers and influential editors, they should "try to create a new and different direction."

"Just look at American fashion, which is almost fashion — it's terrible and you almost can't even look at it," Cavalli said. "But it has been driven by a great journalist, Anna Wintour, who wants all women to be like her and dress the way she does. It's difficult, so I can only say, try to be different, and try to create artistic fashion styles."

To be fair, Wintour does her share to promote young talent — she helped establish the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund with the intent of getting young designers access to the resources and capital needed to grow their brands. Maybe the designs of the Fund's recipients, like Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang, and Joseph Altuzarra, are still too minimalist for Cavalli's taste.
