Queen Of Elegance Joan Collins Believes Wearing Jeans Is "A Tragedy" And Misses The Time When People Dressed Up

Date November 21, 2019

Joan Collins is still the ultimate fashion icon at her 86. The woman has recently got a starring role in the Valentino Christmas campaign due to her timeless sense of style and beauty.

Yet, Joan admits that she mourns the days when dressing up for the day was more of an event.

“I really hope that people will spend more money on clothes, because nobody dresses up anymore."

- the woman said in one of her recent interviews with Vogue.

She, in fact, also admitted that if you do dress up, "then people stare at you or make cutting remarks... well, maybe not cutting, but they’ll say something like, ‘Oh, look at you! You're all dressed up.".

As a fashion legend, Joan simply can't stand it and finds that "very sad", therefore stating "it will be the end of women buying elegant clothes in stores."

Well, what can we say here...denim is comfortable! Still, there is something rational about it.

In Joan Collins' interview with Vogue she also revealed one of her biggest fears:

"Everybody’s going to end up in jeans and T-shirts, which I think is tragic.”

She continued explaining her attitude to jeans,

“I hate jeans. I hate them, they’re so unflattering. And I hate jeans with holes in the knees, or holes anywhere. I’m not keen on T-shirts with logos, either. I like to be comfortable, but I want to be elegant, too.”

This is the third time Collins has spoken out against denim. In 2010, she wrote for the Daily Mail,

“Today, so many people wear jeans all the time that they no longer have any individuality from the waist down … I rarely see anyone, male or female, wearing a pair of jeans that flatter them.”

She also took the time to take say that jeans make “fat people just look fatter,” and “tiny people with thin legs tend to look like giant spiders.”

Two years later she made the point that jeans make everyone look the same, and it’s hard to look glamorous while wearing them.

People's opinion about Joan's war against denim

While some people agreed with Joan's opinion by saying,

"Joan doesn't wear jeans either! I'm not the only one!! Xxx"

others reasonably noted:

"All fine and well most people don’t have the lifestyle to dress up or have time or money it costs money to look good I haven’t been to a hairdresser since I got married 30 years ago"

All in all, it's normal that different people have different thoughts about denim and can wear whatever they feel is right for them. Still, we should add that nowadays fashion designers find so many ways to wear denium that people can look both stylish and elegant wearing it! What do you think? Do you like jeans?
