Ellen DeGeneres: I really like fashion, just not girly fashion
Ellen DeGeneres has revealed that it’s a misconception that she hates fashion just because she doesn’t like wearing dresses.
Ellen told W magazine recently: “Whenever [girlfriend Portia De Rossi] and I are on the red carpet, they’re yelling out for her to tell them what she’s wearing. But nobody cares [about what I’m wearing] because I have a suit on, even if it’s a Gucci suit.”
“That to me is frustrating, because I put effort into getting ready too. But I guess it’s not as important, and I’m not as dressed up somehow.”
“I also feel myself more of a person than a gender. When people show me clothing that seems very, very feminine, it’s hard for me to embrace that, because it just doesn’t feel like me…”
Ellen refused to wear a dress for the magazine’s cover shoot (saying: “I just don’t feel comfortable in it.”) but enjoyed some aspects of being a cover model - if only for one day: “It was fun [for the shoot] having somebody do that to my hair, and do that makeup. But would I want to do that every single day? No.”
