Personal Quotes (1)

A woman is like an actress, she's always onstage. She has to look great to feel good. If she's going to wear clothes by a designer, ... then the clothes should make something happen, something unexpected. The dress has to be part of her, she has to feel it on her body. ... I prefer the woman to be seen rather than the outfit. Her head, her body, her hands -- the garment is there to cover her, to underline something, and make her beautiful.
