Carolina Herrera advises stars to ditch 'naked' red carpet trend

Fashion designer Carolina Herrera has some advice for Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian – cover up! The 76-year-old expressed dismay at the amount of skin celebrities are flashing on the red carpet.

"Some designers think it's so modern to be naked or almost naked," she said in an interview with the Washington Post.

"They think it's going to attract younger people if they do those dresses. No! They're 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 the barely-there dresses worn by Kim, Beyoncé and J Lo at the Met Gala, Carolina continued: "They're supposed to be fashion icons – and they're not wearing anything. It's an obsession now.
