"This is what I really love - where are those girls?" he said. "I was looking the other day, Lara Flynn Boyle in Twin Peaks and that other girl Sherilyn Fenn - they're old school girls like Elizabeth Taylor, and I think that's so fabulous."

Blahnik continued: "[Fenn and Boyle] should be working now instead of these anonymous girls. They're all the same. I don't even know Amanda Seyfried or whatever - they're all the same! I try to remember - the only one I remember is Julia Roberts because she's particular.

"Anne Hathaway... Pretty? Yes. Wonderful actress? Yes. But, I mean, I don't even remember her. What is it about her?... I'm not saying she's not beautiful or a great actress. I just don't remember her."

However, Blahnik had much kinder words for Victoria Beckham, with whom he has worked.

"This is a woman who could do whatever she wanted to do, have a house in Majorca, raise children, be a footballer's wife," he said. "But she's not at all like that. I thought she was going to be one of those pop girls but she's absolutely the complete opposite.

"She's a working girl. She knows what she wants. And when she doesn't know, she really prepares herself. I love this working type of woman."

He added: "I never watched those Spice Girls. I didn't enjoy that at all. So I didn't know her well. But she came out with this pretty boy, got married, and the boy got more tattoos and more tattoos. And then I met her a few times, and we started work, and something happened. You know, she wanted it. She loves what she's doing."
