HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN What's Wrong with the Way Women Dress? The Women, Says Designer NEW YORK—OPi -A mere male came up today with an answer lo what's wrong wilh Ihe way women dress. The answer is—women. "They are too dictated to." said Charles Lc Mnire. "They accept too | much dictation as to what they should wear." Le Matre is In a position to do a little dictating himself. As wardrobe director for Twentieth Century-Pox Films, he runs a staff of 200 experts. They have the pleasant chore of fitting lace and fnr pretties to girls like Betty fcrable. Jeanne Grain. Dorothy McGnlre. June Haver and Maiireen O'Hara. But the clothing of film .stars Is designed to their own pcrsnnal architecture. This isn't true of the average woman. Le Maire. a designer himself, said the b's^cst mistake most, women make Is to follow blindly the dictates of fashion oracles—or 'o try lo nmir herself into a certain type of dress merely because it tanked Bond on a department store manneoiiin, "A girl shouldn't pay any attention to' what she hears of Paris styles." he emphasized. "She should think first of her own shape, and dress to It. if her figure doesn't go with what she wants to wear, then she should change her shape."

An advocate of the plunging neckline. Le Mairp has no moral objections to falsies but insists he doesn't allow them in the Twentieth Century-Fox studio. "That I absolutely prohibit. Anything that isn't part of the body— anything that doesn't move with the body—it. isn't right. "But some sti'rlios like them " he conceded. "Everybody in their' pictures wear them.
