Comedian Ellen DeGeneres posed for the new cover of fashion magazine W, but refused to wear a dress during the shoot.
Don't you dare to misinterpret her. Ellen DeGeneres, who is famous for always wearing trousers/pants, reveals she does like fashion. In an interview with fashion magazine W, the talk show host revealed that people usually think she hates fashion because she doesn't like wearing dresses.
"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," said DeGeneres to the magazine adding, "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."
Agreed to appear on the W's March 2007 cover, DeGeneres in fact refused to wear a dress during the shoot, claiming "I just wouldn't feel comfortable in it (a dress)." On her being approached to appear on the cover, she commented "I know what this magazine is... It's a fashion magazine. For me to even be asked to be on the cover - it's huge. I wasn't planning on changing because it's just different suits, but I may do it, because I'd like to thank them all for making me stuff, for wanting to do that."
