Anna Wintour can’t stand this popular red carpet style
There’s at least one red carpet style Anna Wintour has labeled “AW-NOT-OK.”
In the first installment of Vogue’s new video series “Go Ask Anna,” the magazine’s editor-in-chief sounds off on the sartorial sameness of today’s awards shows.
“We’re surrounded by so many celebrities that you feel are dictated to by their stylists and dictated to by what the press may think of them, and therefore end up in a strapless fishtail sequin dress that we’ve seen 5,000 times,” Wintour, 69, explained.
It’s not the first time the Met Gala guru has expressed her hatred of the popular red carpet gown: In 2015, Page Six was the first to report that Wintour would be giving the Tony Awards a much-needed makeover, after deeming the previous year’s fashion disastrous.
“I was just recently at the Tony Awards … and, God, they need your help. Let me tell you, it was a disaster,” Wintour said during an interview with Suzy Menkes at Central Saint Martins in London. “How many mermaid fishtail strapless sequin [gowns] can we see?”
As for the stylish celebrities who pass muster with the iconic editrix? Vanessa Redgrave, “whom you always see looking absolutely immaculate … it’s just always appropriate,” Wintour said.
“Or somebody like Lupita [Nyong’o], who’s taken such risks on the red carpet but always has looked like herself. She’s never not looked like Lupita, but is fearless in her choices.”
Concluded Wintour: “I admire women who have a signature style, and I admire those who take risks.”
Just as long as that signature style doesn’t include glittering mermaid gowns, apparently.
