This year’s Met Gala red carpet was much more bare than usual—literally—with celebrities fully embracing the naked dress trend. Following Rihanna‘s now-iconic CFDA Awards red carpet appearance in a see-through dress by Adam Selman, barely there-gowns have been on the rise and worn by almost all of Hollywood’s A-listers, from Kim Kardashian to Beyoncé. Not everyone is on board with the daring trend, however; Carolina Herrera is speaking out against fashion’s latest obsession with with exposure.

In an interview with The Washington Post, the 76-year-old designer opened up about her distaste for the naked dress, posing the question, “how can you be a fashion icon if you’re not wearing clothes?” Commenting on the naked dress’s dominance at this year’s Met Gala, Herrera said:

“[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! The almost naked! Oh God! They’re trying to get people to pay attention to them. In life, there should be a little mystery.”

Herrera is not against showing some skin—she loves a plunging neckline—but says one of her major issues with the trend is in the disproportion: “If it’s open so much, the [breasts] look like fried eggs.”

The designer’s aversion to the skin-baring look isn’t all that surprising; Herrera is known for her classic and ladylike design aesthetic, which falls on the opposite end of the naked dress spectrum—all while making just as bold of a red carpet statement.
