Valentino recently caught up with the Guardian to reveal what he really thought:

"I think now all the girls look very ugly," says Valentino - not talking about women in general but those glamorous enough to wear couture. "I saw the pictures of the Metropolitan gala evening [in New York] last week and I never saw something more ugly, all the girls have their legs out with the most terrible proportions." He shakes his head and mutters "no, no, no", wiggling his finger like a disappointed schoolmaster.

So much for Marc Jacobs's desire to see his guests in shorter dresses... Crikey!
