Chloe Sevigny has blasted Hollywood actresses for having no ''imagination'' with red carpet dressing.

The 38-year-old actress thinks too many of her contemporaries rely too much on stylists and refuse to take any risks when it comes to dressing for big events.

She said: ''I do feel there's a lack of imagination when it comes to actresses and red-carpet dressing. There's all that fear. You can feel they've been styled. I think they could be wilder if they got to dress themselves.''

However, Chloe admits she still get upset when her own fashion choices come under fire.

She told Britain's Grazia magazine: ''If I'm going to an event and there's a red carpet thing, then whoever is helping me - which is usually my publicist because I don't work with a stylist - we always say 'Is this a 'what-was-she-thinking dress?'

''The tabloids in America have always put me in that category. But,, you know, it hurts a little. And the worst part is that even when you're standing on the red carpet, you can hear all those criticisms. It makes the whole process of having to do these things not fun.

''I wish I could let go and not worry about it, but I always feel like my head spins and I spiral into a bad place. But I'm trying to get over that.''
