Tim Gunn lambasted Ratajkowski for what she wore to the Harper’s Bazaar Icon’s party — calling it “appallingly vulgar” during an episode of “Fashion Police.”

“If I saw this at a party, all I could do would be to drink,” Gunn said. “I couldn’t eat. There’s absolutely no way. This dress is so appallingly vulgar and revealing. Why wear anything? Why not just take it all off?” (RELATED: Emily Ratajkowski Was Near Nip Slip While Wearing This Insane Dress On The Red Carpet)

“Is this all driven by social media?” he continued. “Is this all just about [getting] everybody shocked? And I will tell you, I’m not shocked. I lived through the 1960s. No decade was more shocking than that when it comes to fashion. This is just vulgar and repugnant.”

Ratajkowski quickly shot back on Twitter.

“When I wrote my ‘Glamour’ article, I was just thinking of men who call women attention seeking for being sexy,” she tweeted. “I wasn’t even thinking of the hosts of nationally televised shows who call women vulgar because they can see their stomachs.” (RELATED: Emily Ratajkowski Just Showed A Jaw-Dropping Amount Of Sideboob In This Photo)

“Western men in 2016: Want to ban women abroad from voluntarily covering themselves at the beach . . . then want women to cover up their ‘vulgar’ bodies at home.”

“It’s 2016. Why keep trying to dictate what women can wear?”
