Dancing With The Stars alum Jane Seymour recently got candid about how limited her choices were for red carpet ensembles.
Speaking to The Guardian, the 68-year-old actress revealed there are tons of Hollywood designers who refuse to dress her for events because of her age.
Despite being in incredible shape, some designers have a range of ages celebrities must be within to work with them.
Jane Seymour Has No Issues With Wearing The Same Outfit More Than Once
As those who’ve browsed red carpet snaps of celebrities know, it is tradition that they wear a new and fresh ensemble at every single event. Seymour, however, told the media outlet she doesn’t particularly care about the fashion forward approach.
“I don’t care whether re-wearing clothes is acceptable or not – if I’m feeling the dress and the occasion, and if it fits, then I’ll wear it again.”
Jane does not have an issue with borrowing clothing either. Especially clothing from someone roughly the same size as her. For example, there was a period of time where she shared clothing with chief executive of Italian fashion label Versace, Donatella Versace.
“In the 80s, Escada loaned me a lot of gowns – I was the unofficial muse of Brian Rennie, the designer,’ said the Dr Quinn Medicine Woman vet. Gianni Versace used to lend me gowns that were made for Donatella because we were the same size. One was a beaded, all-in-one that you thought you could see through, but really you couldn’t. Although, if you looked carefully, maybe you could!”
According to Jane, she had recently broken up with her rock and roll boyfriend at the time. It was around that same time she made the decision to wear the questionably revealing outfit mentioned above.
She also spent a lot of the evening receiving phone numbers from all the individuals who appreciated the outfit.
“But I have to admit that, looking back, I can’t believe I wore it,” she added.
Younger celebrities are often paid and gifted designer outfits in exchange for wearing them.
Celebrities frequently share sponsored posts featuring outfits from particular designers on social media. According to Jane Seymour, that wasn’t something designers did four decades ago when she was in her 20’s.
Instead, she find herself struggling to find designers willing to dress her up in something fresh for red carpeted events. She believes it is a common issue among older women in Hollywood.
