Sharon Stone admits she's not passionate about fashion but admires "the art" of designer clothing.

The 54-year-old actress is losing her passion for designer clothes as she ages.

The former model admits she rarely gets excited over fancy threads these days, preferring to stick to a simple style.

“It’s not a big passion. I could survive without it. I like the architecture of fashion, I would say. And I like the art of fashion," Sharon explained to British newspaper The Sunday Times. "But, really, I’m more of an Issey Miyake girl. All I need is a black turtleneck and a pair of black leather pants. “Whenever I used to go back to Pennsylvania [Sharon's home town], they’d all say, ‘Hey, why do you always look like Johnny Cash?’”

The Basic Instinct star does still enjoy receiving glamorous designer gowns to wear at red carpet events. Sharon joked it's a miracle she fits into some of the creations.

“I love it when people give me runway clothes and ask me to dress it up and look hot - are you kidding? Although, frankly, I think it’s a f**king miracle that I can still fit into them at my age," Sharon joked. "I guess I must be a freak of nature. But as long as they keep asking me, I’ll keep doing it."

Sharon will turn 55 on March 10. She has vowed to continue dressing up well into her seventies should the opportunities continue.

"I’d be happy to do it when I’m in my seventies. Look at Carmen [Dell’Orefice, the 81-year-old New York model]. I think she is so refreshing, such a great example to women," Sharon finished.
