High Rent Bag Ladies
Those would be Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz, says Valentino:

"Today you see Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz running around looking unkempt in jogging trousers, they look like bag ladies, like homeless people. In the past you never saw that," Valentino was quoted as saying by weekly paper Die Zeit.

"In the past, actresses had to commit in their contracts to appear in public like stars when they left their homes," added the Italian, who dresses actress
Gwyneth Paltrow and is often seen with her at red-carpet events like the Venice film festival.

Valentino made his name in the 1960s and designed the wedding dress worn by Jacqueline Kennedy for her marriage to Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis.

Ladies, you make more in a couple of months than a lot of us make in a lifetime. It's not just a job. You're movie stars. Maybe throw on a dress (one that doesn't look like you nicked it off a real homeless person) and some lipstick from time to time? If that's not too much for you.
