  • I have always believed that fashion was not made only to make women more beautiful, but also to reassure them, give them confidence.
    • As quoted in "50 Days of Everyday Fashion" in Yours magazine.
  • I don't really like knees.
    • Quoted in The Observer, 3 August 1958.
  • I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity - all I hope for in my clothes.
    • New York Magazine (November 28, 1983), p. 53.
  • The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.
