Hedi Slimane on Fashion's Obsession with Celebrity — "Nothing Looks Worse Than a Dress on a Red Carpet"

Hedi Slimane on Fashion's Obsession with Celebrity — "Nothing Looks Worse Than a Dress on a Red Carpet"

>> Hedi Slimane is consistently rumored to be heading back to the designing side of fashion, but for now, he seems quite content as a photographer: "It seems quite refreshing to be on this side of fashion, to have the distance and freedom. The fashion system has been busy keeping up with broadband and blogging/social networking. It is not always for the best, but it did give fashion a global audience. The unfortunate outcome might be the obsession and collusion between the celebrity culture and high fashion. It is just a big global mess of random endorsement. Nothing looks worse than a dress or a suit on a red carpet. It is an ongoing tragedy of cheap fashion on cheap celebrities, followed by ubercheap comments. I only like designers’ clothes on models. Good models have an inner understanding of the clothes and design." [Style File]
