Actress Joan Collins, 86 hates jeans and feels that jeans with T-shirt is ‘tragic’!
Joan Collins, 86 wears a variety of dresses. But the actress is never seen in denims or jeans. That is one thing that the star is not fond out. She feels that wearing T-shirt and jeans is ‘tragic’.
Joan Collins and her dislike for denims
Actress Joan Collins enjoys every wear except one. She wears sequins, feathers, and many other types of dresses. But she has never worn jeans and t-shirts. Why?
Joan gave an interview to Vogue where she spoke at length about the current fashion trends. More and more people now like to embrace the style of the 1980s for special events. But Joan does, not like the casual wear of everyday modern life, the jeans and t-shirts.
“I really hope that people will spend more money on clothes, because nobody dresses up anymore,”
“If you do, 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.’ I find that very sad, because it will be the end of women buying elegant clothes in stores. Everybody’s going to end up in jeans and T-shirts, which I think is tragic.”

But now she is against it. She detests it and said:
“I hate jeans. I hate them. They’re so unflattering. And I hate jeans with holes in the knees, or holes anywhere,”
In 2010, Joan heard that Ritz hotel would welcome people in for breakfast even when they are wearing jeans. This upset Joan who gave an interview to Daily Mail UK in which she expressed:
“I haven’t liked jeans for years — probably because their ubiquity has become terribly boring,”
“Do people really want to conform to looking just like everyone else?”
“Jeans have never been sophisticated.”
Joan Collins tells over 40 females to forego jeans
Joan Collins did not stop at just expression of her dislike for jeans. She went ahead and told women over 40 to cease wearing them. This seems too much!
In 2012, she said:
“I like to be comfortable, but I want to be elegant, too,”
“I don’t really fit in with the LA lifestyle, because everyone’s in T-shirts and jeans, and I don’t like that look.”
It is of course Joan Collins’ personal view and she has every right to express it! But other individuals also have their own rights to wear what they feel comfortable with!
