  • We must never confuse elegance with snobbery.
  • To be beautiful, all a woman needs is a black pullover and a black skirt and to be arm in arm with a man she loves.
  • Fashion isn't just to decorate women, but to reassure them, give them confidence.
  • Is elegance not totally forgetting what one is wearing?[1]
  • A woman who has not found her style, who does not feel at ease in her clothes, who does not live in harmony with them, is a sick woman.
  • The silhouette counts more than anything. It should never be overloaded.
  • Fashions fade. Style is eternal.
  • The important thing is to last.
  • Every one needs aesthetic phantoms in order to exist. I have known fear and the terrors of solitude. I have known those fair-weather friends we call tranquilizers and drugs. I have known the prison of depression and the confinement of hospital. But one day, I was able to come through all of that, dazzled yet sober.
  • The most beautiful clothes a woman can be dressed with is the arms of the man she loves. But for those who haven’t had the chance to find this bliss, I’m here.
