Fashion designer Carolina Herrera had some thoughts on the sheer and nearly naked trend that has been taking over the red carpet in recent years. In a recent interview with Robin Givhan for the Washington Post, the 72-year-old designer said that “it’s an obsession” to be naked now.

She expands: “Some designers think ‘it’s so modern to be naked or almost naked’. They think it’s going to attract younger people if they do those dresses. No!” Herrera says emphatically. “The almost naked! Oh God! They’re trying to get people to pay attention to them. In life, there should be a little mystery.”

Referring to Beyonce and Kim Kardashian’s sheer looks at the 2015 Met Gala, she said, “They’re supposed to be fashion icons and they’re not wearing anything,” Herrera says in an “exasperated” and “dismayed” tone, according to Givhan. “It’s an obsession now.”

    Carolina Herrera – the authority on modern day elegance. I agree wholeheartedly. Sad thing, while we expect that behavior from Kim since she has nothing else going on…Beyonce stooping to that level is plain sad.
