I go to auditions even now and people say, ‘Oh, she’s too pretty,’ or ‘She doesn’t look like a small-town girl or a girl in high school who would get bullied.’ But that’s the whole point of being an actress – you can look glamorous when you’re on the red carpet, and then bring it all down and be raw onscreen.

It’s always a weird feeling being on the red carpet, but the more I go, the more I try to connect myself to the here and now. And breathe. That’s the way I make the experience a good one. If I think too much – if my head is somewhere else because I’m stressed out – it shows.

It is tricky because I do wear a lot of vintage on the red carpet, and usually when I’m getting ready, I’ll say, ‘We need to make sure that I don’t look like I’m in a Scorsese film today.’ Sometimes I do something a little bit more modern with my hair. You have to mix it up.
A lot of people always ask me about what life is like. Yes, it’s glamorous, it’s glitzy, but there is a lot more goes on than that glitz and glamour you see in a photograph or on a red carpet.

If I have to do a red carpet, and there is a whole team, then it is an hour with the hair and make-up. But if I am just going out with friends, it is 15 minutes max in front of the mirror. A quick five minutes on my face, and I always wear my hair up.
My experience with music, I’m not going to say extremely negative, but it’s definitely been a grind; it’s been grimy – it hasn’t been a pretty process.

On set is where I feel comfortable. The red carpet stuff, talking about the film, explaining your own life, it doesn’t come naturally. It’s all necessary stuff I suppose but it’s not my strength.

I went to the premier of ‘Stardust,’ which starred Michelle Pfeiffer. I nearly died when I saw her on the red carpet – she’s so beautiful.

The red carpet is very important. You have to be very careful to have the right person dressed in right way. For me, it has to be a perfect look.
Red carpet dressing all depends on the climate. I think richer, deeper colours are more flattering on the body, but the opposite is true if you are in Cannes or St. Tropez where the light makes deep colours look heavy and unflattering.
On the red carpet, I need to be protected. When I wear a Chanel dress, I feel like I’ve earned the right to be there. And Karl Lagerfeld is so poetic, such an intelligent man. I like the way he has the power to draw attention.

I like to be other people, not me. And when you’re on the red carpet, it’s like, ‘Here’s Tom Hardy.’ I don’t want to be me. That’s why I play other people.
I have a no-kids policy on my website, meaning I won’t publish paparazzi photos of celebrity children. I’ll only post photos that celebrities themselves share on social media, or if the kids are photographed at a red carpet event.

I don’t like dressing up, and I don’t like putting on make-up or doing the red carpet. The only red carpet events I go to are if I’m supporting a friend.
The first red carpet I did was at New York’s Paris Theatre… It was this beautiful night, and everyone is screaming my name. I’m the least pretentious actress you can ever meet. Someone said to me that I look like I’ve been doing this forever, and I said that’s because I watch E!
When I do fall in love, I’ll go to the ends of the earth for that person. I’d lay down on a carpet of nails for the person I love.

My husband and I are either going to buy a dog or have a child. We can’t decide whether to ruin our carpet or ruin our lives.
They never ask the celebrities why they don’t wear their own clothes on the red carpet.
Sometimes, when I’m on the red carpet or something, and there was a lot of flashes, my eyes, like, start watering. I’m like, ‘Oh.’ You have to hide it, so I just keep going, and then I’m like, ‘Oh gosh, it hurts so bad.’
I like to be creative with my red carpet outfits, but equally, sometimes I am just in the mood to go all out with a ball gown and heels – but only If you get me on the right day!
You never want to be caught off guard on the red carpet.
The red carpet is not something I really know how to work. It intimidates me. I feel very tiny.
On the red carpet, I’m playing a character. As soon as I get off that thing, I think, ‘Oof, wipe that gloss off.’ I’m wiping and wiping and pulling my hair out and trying to change my outfit. I’m immediately trying to get comfortable. It’s really a part I play.
Trump is a master obfuscator. Like an octopus escaping a predator, he releases a cloud of ink when called to the carpet on one of his many lies. His strategy? Obfuscate, then reference others. ‘Millions agree,’ ‘everyone knows,’ ‘many have done it.’
What bothers me about red carpet, particularly Cannes, is that it’s an extremely important festival where stunning films are shown and nothing of that ever comes in papers. It’s always celebrities standing with one hand on waist, I don’t know who decided that as an attractive position.
My dream customer is every celebrity that’s on the red carpet, everybody at the Met Gala, and on top of that, just everybody and anybody. I would dress everybody.

I’m doing my best to stay off that financing scheme that relies on this one strip of capital, which is the red carpet. And – no sob story – but it’s hard. It takes a while.
Red carpet is always fun, but you’re never going to see me on the street or in the grocery store in 6-inch heels. But I am always going to have big, fabulous hair and makeup.
I guess I get to make films and I love what I do, but there’s also the downside of having to be constantly present and do a lot of press, and go to festivals and do the red carpet. And that’s something that’s more and more part of an actor’s job.
All the time people ask me, like, ‘Oh my God, what did you do to get ready for the red carpet?’ And I’m like, ‘I just had Thai food.’ I love to work out and do cardio and have a healthy, active lifestyle, but I also am not going to, like, freak out over food.
On any given day, if I play the guitar, I can put myself somewhere. I always thought, ‘This is the way you go.’ It’s like a magic carpet, see?
As a woman, and as somebody in the public eye, we always have to be ready for the red carpet and have the nicest outfit, work with the best makeup artist. While all that’s nice, we’re also human beings.
I think the only time that I worry about looking good is on the red carpet.
For me, people see me working with my celebrity clients, but it’s important to show people how they can make their lives their own red carpet every day.
I see all the red carpet paparazzi stuff and I’m like, ‘Really? Do I have to?!’ I like to work and I know that’s part of the job. But you kind of take it in stride.
I’ll definitely wear orange on the red carpet!
Smiling makes a huge difference. A lot of people walk the red carpet and try to be sexy. I don’t do that; I always smile.
Jazmyn Simon
I love dressing up, but I do find the red carpet thing quite stressful. When I went to Venice Film Festival last month to promote ‘Wuthering Heights,’ I told my boyfriend beforehand ‘I will be a nightmare, I will cry, I will be nervous.’ Actually once I was there, it was fine.
For many years I’ve been using Swarovski accessories when styling editorial photo shoots and also for red carpet appearances.

As soon as I walk down that sticky six-mile patterned carpet that welcomes you at Heathrow, I buy the Sunday papers and read the fashion supplements cover to cover. Even though hardly a single word in them seems directed at any male who ever lived, I find them compulsive reading.
I exercise to stay strong, healthy, and stage-ready. I never prepare for a red carpet – I just go with the flow.
The memory of that scene for me is like a frame of film forever frozen at that moment: the red carpet, the green lawn, the white house, the leaden sky. The new president and his first lady.
Every White House Correspondents’ Dinner for the past three years, I have broken my dress and can’t even zip it, so we have to leave – that’s why I’ve missed every carpet appearance. One time, we had to go into Virginia to find me a new dress.
I really hate the duties of being a celebrity, like getting dressed up for the red carpet.
I don't get much out of doing a red carpet.

The man who invented the red carpet needed his head examined.
Prince Philip
I’m old enough to know that a red carpet’s just a rug, and I’ve been able to enjoy the pageantry without letting it go to my head.
I’ve never been a red carpet hugger unless it is for charity.
We are borrowing money from future generations. We are borrowing the carbon impact, the resource impact from future generations to get stuff cheap now. We have swept the dirt and dust from our society under the carpet – but this carpet is on other side of the planet.
