Celebrity Fashion. According To Hedi Slimane

  • Pin it

Rumor has it, that the fashpeople believe the Red Carpet to be one of the worst usages of fashion. Of Real Fashion. The fashpopulation who only swears on the sacred catwalk and only trusts the models worn clothing is ready to cast the stone on the celebrities wearing this and that dress.

The harm done by the celeb fashion is, apparently, something unprecedented in the history of fashion (and more). Hedi Slimane, designer and photographer extraordinaire is currently sharing the above views on fashion and celebrity. Please read the following and weigh in: (via)

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.

I would like to say to Hedi: “Don’t bite the hand that feed you”.

(Though that red carpet often doesn’t match with most of the great dresses ;) )

Can I be on your team Hedi?
Couldn’t agree more – if I was a designer I wouldn’t want any celebrity within 100 miles of my designs (except maybe someone like Lauren Hutton). If you have the talent – then the people will come.

Hahahah, sorry I have to laugh keiko! And I laugh loud too. Please explain me, whom is gonna pay for the ‘art’ of the famous designers? Museums? Every season? How pretentious!! After all we’re talking about clothes, just clothing. Expensive clothing. How are they going to survive without these celebrities? I don’t think this idea of yours make shareholders of LVMH and PPR, Gucci and whoever more happy!!
