Tom Ford is concerned by the number of celebrities "injecting way too many things" into their faces.

During an appearance on the Table for Two with Bruce Bozzi podcast that aired on Tuesday, the fashion designer insisted that he is all for ageing gracefully and believes Hollywood standards of beauty are completely unobtainable.

"People are injecting way too many things in their faces...You look at a lot of celebrities now and you just think, 'Oh my God, what do they see when they look in the mirror?'" he said, adding, "They don't even look like themselves any longer."

Tom believes the continued use of fillers and Botox is akin to a form of dysmorphia.

"It is truly dysmorphia. I think a lot of these people lose touch with who they were; they see a line and they think they have to fill it; they see a wrinkle and they've got to fill it; They see someone else's mouth and they think they need to have that," the 61-year-old continued. "I think it is a problem, culturally, for us. I think everything has to be done in moderation. It looks odd sometimes when people literally don't age."

Elsewhere, Tom offered Ali MacGraw, 84, as an example of an actress who looks "incredible" and "beautiful" without relying on cosmetic surgery.

"At a certain point, you have to give up trying to be Best in Show and settle for Best in Class," he added.
