I love the fashion world. I love clothes. I love style. -Kaley Cuoco

I am not a fashion freak! -Kate Moss

I have multipersonality disorder – in a very good way, of course – when it comes to my fashion choices. -Katy Perry

The fact that I made a special movie with an old-fashioned style – even if it's a mix between with modern and old-fashioned things – must mean I feel both ways about change. In a way I'm resisting, but in a way adapting myself to the times. -Michel Hazanavicius

We are looking to get counties to play their young England players earlier, and the first reports from the counties are that it is working well. It also helps us to prepare in a better fashion. -Andy Pick

When I had my daughter, my priorities shifted. Being in the world of fashion you have to be very self-absorbed and surrounded by people that are self-absorbed. -Carolyn Murphy

If I'm teaching girls that do love to make cookies and do love fashion – that they can use math as a part of that – you think that's me saying, come on girls you belong in the kitchen, you belong shopping?

My message is: You don't have to give up being popular, fun, or fashionable in order to be smart; they can go hand and hand. Doing math is a great way to exercise your brain; being smart is going to make you more powerful in life. -Danica McKellar

I'd never worked in fashion or retail. I just needed an undergarment that didn't exist. -Sara Blakely

My childhood was limited to mostly gospel music. We didn't have, like, a lot of records in our house, you know. It was like my grandparents who raised me. They were pretty old-fashioned in their religious ways, so it was like church, church, church, school, school, school. -Faith Evans

The fashion world has been great. We started Apple Bottoms about seven years ago; it's interesting to be able to create something from your perspective, for your fans and support. It's a little different for me, because about 70% of my fans are females. -Nelly

I personally love sportswear, and love using it in high fashion. -Stella McCartney

I used to get embarrassed about the fact I liked fashion. I still get a bit cringy. -Stella McCartney

I think I was very young when I became interested in fashion. -Christian Siriano

I'll sing outside your window. I'm as old fashioned as they come. -A. J. McLean

'Vanity Fair' caught me at a very exciting time in my life filled with night clubs, international fashion shows, celebrities and lots of cash to go around. Sometimes things just fall into place. 'Vanity Fair' was one of those things. -Jeremy Jackson

It was a really fun idea to have a fashion label with my sister but I don't have an awful lot of time for it because my first love and job is to be an actress. -Sienna Miller

I'm really interested in fashion but at the same time I find it quite competitive. Second-hand stuff leaves you more open to whatever your own personal style is rather than feeling dictated to by shops. -Sophie Ellis-Bextor

I don't think that old-fashioned idea of record companies exists any more. -Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Robert Pattinson has the face of a film-noir dupe. It's a face that is searching and open and kind. It's a face that a certain type of woman might want to fool because, in its intensely old-fashioned kindness, the face says, I love you. Fool me. -Wesley Morris

People's musical tastes are fickle, and music can be a fashion. -Alex Kapranos

There was one thing my daddy wouldn't tolerate in any shape, form or fashion, and that was being unkind or rude to somebody. That was just very important to my folks. And as it turns out, that was a legacy that he left me that money can't buy, is how to be able to treat people. -Paula Deen

The films that I love are very straightforward stories, like really old-fashioned stuff. -Paul Thomas Anderson

American women often fall into the trap of, 'Oh, these are my weekend clothes. These are my work clothes. This is what I wear at night.' It's so old-fashioned. -Michael Kors

I really like fashion, but I'm not a fashionista by any means. -Danny Masterson

China approaches fashion with strong enthusiasm. And I believe that this enthusiasm can be translated into something interesting, economically speaking. Not only for my brand, but also for other brands. -Giorgio Armani

It is difficult to talk about fashion in the abstract, without a human body before my eyes, without drawings, without a choice of fabric – without a practical or visual reality. -Giorgio Armani

If something is good, it doesn't go out of style every six months. The fashion wheel of today doesn't have to go as quickly as it was pushed in the 80's. -Helmut Lang

I have been asked to collaborate with fashion houses using my artwork, which I will probably do. -Helmut Lang

In the fashion world if you're successful, everyone loves you, and you have available every service. It's hard to walk away, except it wasn't hard for me. I had my mind completely made up. -Helmut Lang

I was never so directly inspired by fashion. It always came from somewhere else. -Helmut Lang

Initially, it was the unpractical in fashion that brought me to design my own line. I felt that it was much more attractive to cut clothes with respect for the living, three-dimensional body rather than to cover the body with decorative ideas. -Jil Sander

I sometimes feel that a pattern is almost a fashion statement in itself. -Jil Sander

The '90s were extremely diverse, almost like a laboratory of the new century. There was much experimenting around, in politics, economics, gender and family structures, and also in fashion. There was a cloud of possibilities which kept us all dizzy. -Jil Sander

The apparent pointlessness of fashion may be just what makes it so strong as a zeitgeist sensor. Even I, a designer, do not know why a certain proportion feels dated or why another one feels exciting at a given moment. I leave that to the cultural historians and theorists. -Jil Sander

I always loved aesthetics. Not particularly fashion, but an idea of beauty. -Miuccia Prada

I love clothes. Maybe I can say I don't love fashion, but I love clothes completely. -Miuccia Prada

I was a communist, but being left-wing was fashionable. I was no different from thousands of middle-class kids. -Miuccia Prada

Now, I'm not saying I'm fashionable, but there are sociological interests that matter to me, things that are theoretical, political, intellectual and also concerned with vanity and beauty that we all think about but that I try to mix up and translate into fashion. -Miuccia Prada

For me, it's important to anticipate where fashion is heading. -Miuccia Prada

When I design and wonder what the point is, I think of someone having a bad time in their life. Maybe they are sad and they wake up and put on something I have made and it makes them feel just a bit better. So, in that sense, fashion is a little help in the life of a person. But only a little. -Miuccia Prada

I was a feminist in the Sixties, and can you imagine? The worst thing I could have done was to be in fashion. It was the most uncomfortable position. -Miuccia Prada

In Europe the world of fashion is too conservative, very eighties. -Miuccia Prada

Women often don't want to admit that they like fashion. And yet fashion enthralls everyone, from the taxi driver to the mega-intellectual. I have often asked myself why this is. I don't know the answer. -Miuccia Prada

Talking about the democratization of fashion is just one of the many trite things people say these days. -Miuccia Prada

I really love to resurrect pieces from my past collections and wear them to fashion week parties. -Nanette Lepore

When I think about fashion I think women will never lose that appetite for fashion. -Tory Burch

I have my favourite fashion decade, yes, yes, yes: '60s. It was a sort of little revolution; the clothes were amazing but not too exaggerated. -Valentino Garavani

I didn't like the '80s at all; it was a vulgar moment of fashion. -Valentino Garavani

I am especially grateful that I have been able to keep my own style over the decades, in spite of the many changes that have taken place in the world of fashion and in its business. -Valentino Garavani

I am happy that thousands of students, young designers and fashion people will be able to see and study my work in every aspect of it. -Valentino Garavani

I hope people will say, 'Mr. Valentino, he did something for fashion, no?' -Valentino Garavani

I love, love, love fashion so much. That's why I became a model in the first place. -Linda Evangelista

I'm a girl who loves fashion. I'm such a Cinderella – I love to put on a great dress and heels. It's fun! -Maria Bello

Women's fashion is more interesting than men's. -Nick Rhodes

I enjoy fashion. -Bjorn Borg

I was never a big networker, but I was a spin doctor, all those shock shows, that's how I got my first backers. But fashion's a scary industry to be in, especially if you've not grown up with it. -Alexander McQueen

I would hope that we could have this in an adult fashion and stop demagogueing the issue anytime you talk about any substantive reforms that will actually save social security and save Medicare and save the system from imploding on itself. -Ben Quayle

I think a submarine is a very worthwhile weapon. I believe we can defend ourselves with submarines and all our troops back at home. This whole idea that we have to be in 130 countries and 900 bases… is an old-fashioned idea. -Ron Paul

I always wanted to be a designer. I read books on fashion from the age of 12. -Alexander McQueen

It's a new era in fashion – there are no rules. It's all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together. -Alexander McQueen

You can get insular with fashion. -Alexander McQueen

The turnover of fashion is just so quick and so throwaway, and I think that is a big part of the problem. There is no longevity. -Alexander McQueen

I was in fashion school, my brother has a law background, and my sister-in-law had worked in production, but none of us had a proper fashion business education. -Alexander Wang

There's a tendency to think that young designers only do fantasy fashion, but I'm more interested in making clothes that women can afford. -Alexander Wang

I don't think fashion week will go back to what it used to be because people are realising that the industry is completely changing. It's not just in Bryant Park any more, people are figuring out who their audience is, where they want to show, they aren't really playing by the rules. It's not so much about these editors, these buyers. -Alexander Wang

When I decided to launch my first knitwear line, it was because I saw a void in the basics category. The editors were always looking for cool, fashion-forward tees and sweaters. So that's where I started. -Alexander Wang

I live for fashion. -Anna Sui

No one has ever found a solution for not doing a fashion show. -Anna Sui

I never intended being a business person I wanted to be a fashion designer. -Anna Sui

I think that fashion has become such a big business and with globalization we are on new territory at this point. We are not just designing for a country we are designing for a world now. -Anna Sui

To me, fashion is like a mirror. It's a reflection of the times. And if it doesn't reflect the times, it's not fashion. Because people aren't gonna be wearing it. -Anna Sui

Doing fashion drawings was the only way I had to express myself when I was a teenager. -Jean Paul Gaultier

When I started in fashion, I had already adopted the sailor-striped sweater as my uniform; that way, I wouldn't have to drive myself crazy trying to figure out what to wear. -Jean Paul Gaultier

I don't know exactly what is my impact, but I can say I am doing fashion my own way. -Jean Paul Gaultier

If it's too fashiony, it's not interesting to me. -Jean Paul Gaultier

You see me, I wanted to be fashion designer. I became fashion designer. So I think that everything is possible. -Jean Paul Gaultier

I am a fashion designer, so I guess that makes me an overpacker. -L'Wren Scott

The biggest part of my fashion choices is how comfortable it is. -L'Wren Scott

Ever since I was a little girl, I always loved fashion. I would watch my mother get dressed and suggest things she should wear. -Monique Lhuillier

I always thought I was going to be a dancer and then fashion kind of took over. -Monique Lhuillier

My mother is from Paris, so she was quite a fashion plate. I always had that French influence at home. -Nicole Miller

Fashion is about dressing according to what's fashionable. Style is more about being yourself. -Oscar de la Renta

Online media is increasingly influential in fashion. -Oscar de la Renta

The great thing about fashion is that it always looks forward. -Oscar de la Renta

Just because you work in the fashion industry, it doesn't mean you live your life in fashion. -Phillip Lim

I've always loved fashion so much and I didn't have access to the kind of fashion I really wanted, so I would do vintage shopping. -Rachel Roy

With time, fashion has become part of my DNA. -Roberto Cavalli

I love being a fashion designer. -Roberto Cavalli

Fashion should be something that in the morning, when you open your window, you say, 'Oh fantastic, sun!' Then you take your shower, you say, 'OK fantastic, which colour I wear today because I feel happy?' This should be fashion. -Roberto Cavalli

My dream, maybe because of my family, of course, was to be a painter. I chose in one moment the direction of textiles; from textiles I went to fashion. -Roberto Cavalli

I love women's fashion, but women don't need me as much as men do. It's the men who have nothing to wear. -Roberto Cavalli

I feel fashion needs me for many, many years more. -Roberto Cavalli

In my planet, fashion, I'm the only straight man. -Roberto Cavalli

I think I was the first to show that a designer could be like a rock star, that people should love your fashion but also put your name together with your fashion. -Roberto Cavalli

You know, you've got to be careful with how you educate your kids in rock'n'roll fashion. -Scott Weiland

I'm only seeing tennis balls these days. And maybe the occasional fashion sketch. -Venus Williams

The principle of the design – the harmony, rhythm and balance are all the same with interior and fashion design. -Venus Williams

I'm not a slave to fashion; I'm into exercising my individuality. -Sandra Oh

Look around. There are no enemies here. There's just good, old-fashioned rivalry. -Bob Wells

I have a showroom where we experiment with twelve cakes. We develop sketches and ideas for cakes for the next season. We work with the top fashion designers to see what type of lace they are using or work with the top florist for us to be able to make various sugar roses or flowers. -Ron Ben-Israel

I think fashion is a lot of fun. I love clothes. More than fashion or brand labels, I love design. I love the thought that people put into clothes. I love when clothes make cultural statements and I think personal style is really cool. I also freely recognize that fashion should be a hobby. -Anne Hathaway

The fashion editor as it used to be has changed. Now you have to wear many hats, and whoever tells you differently is wrong. Now you're on TV, whether you want it or not. -Nina Garcia

I grew up with a fashion-obsessed mother and an older sister, so there was a lot of fashion in my house. The first thing I remember owning was a Pierre Cardin jumpsuit when I was 9 or 10; of course I didn't actually buy it, but I fell in love with it. -Nina Garcia

For so many years fashion was shrouded in mystery, this glamorous profession that people knew very little about, they thought it was so glamorous. It now has become so available, with the Internet, with shops like H&M and Target that do designer collaborations, so it's more available to everyone and that's created more interest. -Nina Garcia

It's pathetic to have regrets about fashion. Things to do with my life, yes, I have regrets there. -Simon Le Bon

Maybe I'm old-fashioned. But I remember the beauty and thrill of being moved by Broadway musicals – particularly the endings of shows. -Marvin Hamlisch

I guess tennis is my main art, but fashion is definitely very close. -Venus Williams

Where consumption is both conspicuous and competitive, humanity will never run out of new wishes. All the while, industry creates new desires that are marketed, in the great fashion paradox, as both novelty and need. -James Buchan

There are some things that are never out of fashion because they just look good. But if you want classic style these days you have to get it made. -Jay Kay

I've been blessed to be one of those guys who's looked at as a fashion-forward type of guy. -Dwyane Wade

I'm not trying to be fashionable. Never was! -Dolly Parton

Since I was 8 months old, till I was 12, I did commercials and ads and cute little stuff for kids. Then I had braces on my teeth. They took them off when I was 16, and then I started modeling more seriously and doing more fashion. -Bar Refaeli

Most women are dissatisfied with their appearance – it's the stuff that fuels the beauty and fashion industries. -Annie Lennox

I wanted to be a fashion designer. -Heidi Klum

I have always been too round to do fashion shows. -Heidi Klum

I had holes in my jeans well before it was fashionable. -Kenny Rogers

I feel intimidated by fashion. -Megan Fox

A lot of women these days, a lot of young women don't want to call themselves feminists. You have this cheap, hideous 'girl power' sort of fad, which I think is pretty benign at best, but at worst, I think it's a way of taking the politics out of feminism and making it some kind of fashion. -Ani DiFranco

Since the departure of good old-fashioned entertainers the re-emergence of somebody who wants to be an entertainer has unfortunately become a synonym for camp. I don't think I'm camper than any other person who felt at home on stage, and felt more at home on stage than he did offstage. -David Bowie

My mum is totally crazy for fashion still. -Stefano Gabbana

I'm a man, I'm not just a fashion designer. -Stefano Gabbana

My mum was very conscious about fashion and my dad was born into the tailoring tradition, so fashion has always been my life, although now, really, I wear the same thing – just in different weights – light and heavy cashmere in winter and cotton in summer. -Domenico Dolce

Do I make fashion mistakes? Yes, but I won't say what. -Domenico Dolce

What the fashion system says and what the fashion customer says are really two different things. -Stefano Gabbana

I don't look at fashion shows on the internet because it's too flat. -Stefano Gabbana

The world needs some excitement from fashion. -Christian Lacroix

People want to be in their own fashion tribes, so they want to wear the same clothes to be connected to everyone else in that tribe. But they want to be different from other tribes. -Christian Lacroix

If I was a fashion designer just following trends or designing for celebrities, I would not be fulfilled. -Christian Lacroix

I'm very old fashioned. -Cate Blanchett

My parents had an old-fashioned ideal of college, that four years at a liberal arts college should be a liberal arts education. -Julie Bowen

I am a huge fashion fan. It's a really cool way to express yourself. -Kiernan Shipka

I follow fashion trends. -Kiernan Shipka

You can be good at technology and like fashion and art. You can be good at technology and be a jock. You can be good at technology and be a mom. You can do it your way, on your terms. -Marissa Mayer

I've always described my taste in fashion and music as being very eclectic and uniquely based off my feelings that day. That's the wonderful thing about style. You can be whatever you want to be. You can describe yourself however you want to describe yourself. -Hayden Panettiere

At the end of the week, it's nice to just hang out in a pair of jeans and let my hair down. I need a break from all that fashion! -Archie Panjabi

I fall into that nebulous, quote-unquote, normal American woman size that legions of fashion stylists detest. For the record, I'm a size 8 – this week, anyway. Many stylists hate that size because I think to them, it shows that I lack the discipline to be an ascetic; or the confident, sassy abandon to be a total fatty hedonist. -Mindy Kaling

There's the psychotic ambitious side of myself that wants a fashion line and my own network and be like a combination of Oprah and Gwen Stefani. And have a perfume. Definitely a perfume. -Mindy Kaling

The '90s were really just bad for fashion and hair. -Emilia Clarke

I love clothes, but really I don't have that much to say about skirts. Before I was writing, I went to fashion shows only when the designer was a good friend and I was there to show support. -Padma Lakshmi

People always comment about my clothes. They don't think a fashionable woman can love food and be knowledgeable and actually cook. -Padma Lakshmi

I'm so happy that I finished college. Going into this crazy vortex of scrutiny is tough. If I was younger than I was now and I was going to fashion shows, I might have this distorted sense of self. I might rely on those cameras. Because when I was 18, I was half-baked. -Allison Williams

I love New York, it's always been my home. It has everything – music, fashion, entertainment, impressive buildings, huge parks, street cafes. And it's very international, with people from all over the world. -Sean Combs

People get very trapped where they are. When they hear 'fashion' they get intimidated, particularly at the upper end because it's so elitist. -Vera Wang

I like the gritty parts of fashion, the design, the studio, the pictures. -Vera Wang

I was the girl who nobody thought would ever get married. I was going to be a fashion nun the rest of my life. There are generations of them, those fashion nuns, living, eating, breathing clothes. -Vera Wang

There was no relationship between a wedding dress and fashion. There was no good taste, either. I realized that I could make an impression in terms of changing and readdressing the whole industry of bridal. -Vera Wang

I'm only waiting for Lindsay Lohan's fashion collection to come out. Ten years from now, there may be no real designers left. -Vera Wang

I just love fashion. I think it just expresses who you are so much. -Lindsay Lohan

I'm the old-fashioned type who prefers to meet a woman in a more normal setting. I don't like to feel that I'm being hunted down. I've always liked to do my own hunting when it comes to meeting women. -George Clooney

I do genuinely believe that the political system is not linear. When it reaches a tipping point fashioned by a critical mass of opinion, the slow pace of change we're used to will no longer be the norm. I see a lot of signs every day that we're moving closer and closer to that tipping point. -Al Gore

So, I don't work in terms of real time. I don't work in a timely fashion. -John Irving

I can't really dress rock 'n' roll any more because I'm the wrong side of 40, but I want that to be the fashion. -Daniel Craig

I've raised my girls in a sort of genderless fashion. I mean, I'll take them to get their nails done – I actually love doing that – but I also play ball with them. As a result, my girls are tough and athletic and game for everything. -Harry Connick, Jr.

There's something about the fashion world that I like, which is, I see a lot of the designers really have affection for other designers. -Harvey Weinstein

I've been round Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, and China in the last few months and the message that I've been taking is that New Zealand is building an up market dynamic into a connected economy. And that we are not the old-fashioned, ship mutton kind of product the people associate their export in work. -Helen Clark

One of the problems is that everybody is used to the old-fashioned debate system, which is very controlled, and where the moderator plays a more active role. -Jim Lehrer

I love fashion. I love couture. I'm going to erect a shelf in my bedroom with an art light to be the spot for the shoes of the month. -Sandra Bullock

I married somebody who likes the way I look. If I changed my hair every year, and I reinvented myself in time-honoured pop fashion, I think understandably the person I'm married to would grow slightly sick of me. -Robert Smith

One of the things that's great about New York is that it is not a one-industry town. It has education, academia, the service industry, arts, publishing, theater, politics, fashion, finance, as well as movie-making. -Sarah Jessica Parker

I'm aware of people's association with me and fashion and I certainly take that role on for some occasions, but it doesn't dominate my thoughts all the time. -Sarah Jessica Parker

I don't consider myself any great sage of fashion or style, whatever people may want to think. -Jude Law

There's such a huge link with fashion, with front covers of magazines and selling products, but that's not what you go into the job for, and yet you're persuaded that's what you have to do to create the opportunities for yourself. -Ruth Wilson

I've always cared about fashion and what I look like. I don't like to spend a lot of money on designer clothes, but I do like to look good. -Zac Efron

Madonna remains the most visible performer on the planet, as well as one of the wealthiest, but would anyone seriously say that artistic self-development is her primary motivating principle? She is too busy with Kabbalah, fashion merchandising, adoption melodramas, the gym, and ill-starred horseback riding to study art. -Camille Paglia

A lesser complaint: hair extensions. There are moments on 'All My Children' when half the women actors, young and old, seem to be afflicted by android Barbie creep. All those thick swatches of lifeless strands clustering lankly round ladies' necks! Like orange tanning spray, this is a fashion fad that should be put out of its misery. -Camille Paglia

I think any time you have a workplace that's heavily weighted to men just by the nature of what it is, the same way you can say PR or fashion is heavily occupied by women, there's always going to be a little bit of that sexism. -Erin Duffy

I have a kind of old-fashioned, artisan approach. -Lee Child

I'm quite ignorant about fashion and I'm colourblind, so it's all a tad tricky. My only knowledge of that world comes through Christopher Bailey, whom I first met in 2008 when I did a campaign for Burberry that featured musicians, artists, actors and sportsmen. -Eddie Redmayne

I had never been to a fashion show before going to the Burberry show last month. It was an extraordinary spectacle. I was incredibly green and had no idea what an undertaking it is. I also have a new respect for models because they are so close to the front row and must be so self-conscious. -Eddie Redmayne

I've missed London so much for its fashion. No disrespect to the girls in Manchester, but some really do look like clones – there's a lot of hair extensions and fake tans. You're free to experiment down here. -Kaya Scodelario

A friend often says I'm an old man in a young man's husk. I like that. I am old-fashioned in some ways. -Daniel Radcliffe

In housing in the fifties in Britain and the sixties, we pulled down the terraces – destroyed whole communities and replaced them with tower blocks and we built walkways that became rat-runs for muggers. That was the fashionable opinion. But it was wrong. -John Major

I need to be performing. I need to be acting. I need to be designing a condo and ripping down walls and buying new plates and looking at fashion magazines. There always has to be some movement in the artistic department for me to not get really, really low. -Alanis Morissette

I love fashion, I'm actually a pretty talented seamstress, so I can make stuff for myself, but that's really time-consuming. -Margaret Cho

Don't just eat McDonald's, get something a bit better. Eat a salad. That's what fashion is. It's something that is a bit better. -Vivienne Westwood

To me, reading a fashion magazine is the last thing I need to do. I've got books I need to read. -Vivienne Westwood

I never look at fashion magazines. I find them incredibly boring. -Vivienne Westwood

I'm a fashion designer and people think, what do I know? -Vivienne Westwood

I'm not sure what I think about current fashion, though. A few years ago, I would have said it's really, really bad and you hardly ever see anybody looking good. There must be some very good designers in the world. -Vivienne Westwood

I didn't want to be a fashion designer, and for a good half of my career I didn't like it. I always wanted to do other things. -Vivienne Westwood

If you wear clothes that don't suit you, you're a fashion victim. You have to wear clothes that make you look better. -Vivienne Westwood

If you're too big to fit into fashion, then you just have to do your own fashion. -Vivienne Westwood

I very rarely watch my own fashion shows, but the makeup for my Fall 2011 show was just brilliant. -Vivienne Westwood

At one time, I was very angry. I even treated fashion like a kind of crusade: you were either with us or against us, that kind of feeling. Now I know we need ideas, not kicking down a door. -Vivienne Westwood

When we start deceiving ourselves into thinking not that we want something… but that it is a moral imperative that we have it, that is when we join the fashionable madmen. -Joan Didion

I love fashion. I think it's so important, because it's how you show yourself to the world. -Emma Watson

I'm a multidimensional person and that's the freedom of fashion: that you're able to reinvent yourself through how you dress and how you cut your hair or whatever. -Emma Watson

We don't need fashion to survive, we just desire it so much. -Marc Jacobs

I think that at heart I am an old-fashioned Chinese, really I am. -Ang Lee

Growing up in a house of five girls, I couldn't help but glance at a fashion magazine or two. -Karlie Kloss

MTV in general is involved with so many artists – musicians, actors, people in the fashion industry, and art world. -Karlie Kloss

I think, with suits and clothes, if you keep them long enough, they all come back in fashion. -Rod Stewart

If I wasn't even famous or had any success, I would still wake up and put tons of make-up on, and put on a cool outfit. That's always been who I've been my whole life, so that's never gonna change. I love fashion. I love getting dressed up. I love Halloween, too. -Gwen Stefani

I'm not the girl for superhigh fashion because I don't have the right body. -Halle Berry

We all fight over what the label 'feminism' means but for me it's about empowerment. It's not about being more powerful than men – it's about having equal rights with protection, support, justice. It's about very basic things. It's not a badge like a fashion item. -Annie Lennox

My belief, for what it is worth, is that city dwellers cannot understand the world. Insulated from reality by complex and expert systems of provision and police, baffled by fashion and spectacle, city dwellers can distinguish neither the sources of their existence nor the consequences. -James Buchan

If Broadway no longer seems behind the times or ahead of the times, it may be because there are no 'times' anymore, no prevailing Zeitgeist that sets the fashion, pace, and prevailing look. -James Wolcott

I'm very much a girl that likes to have options. That's the way I am with fashion, and that's the way I am with my life. -Ashley Greene

I have a very classic take on fashion. I like my accessories to pop, but in general, my style is pretty classic. -Ashley Greene

My girlfriend is a fashion designer. She has her own company called Rachel Antonoff. She is doing a collaboration with Urban Outfitters right now, a shoe collaboration with Bass. She sells to Barneys, stuff like that. -Nate Ruess

But as an adult working in the fashion industry, I struggle with materialism. And I'm one of the least materialistic people that exist, because material possessions don't mean much to me. They're beautiful, I enjoy them, they can enhance your life to a certain degree, but they're ultimately not important. -Tom Ford

I enjoy the speed of fashion. I love doing different things and I think I still have something valid to say in fashion. -Tom Ford

I'm quite old-fashioned. I like going out to dinner. You have the chance to talk to somebody and get to know them better. -Harry Styles

I'm a bit old-fashioned. I like the idea of going to the cinema and then an Italian restaurant. -Louis Tomlinson

You know what I like about San Francisco? The women are beautiful, fashionable and smart. San Francisco is one of the only cities I like to visit. I love New York and Chicago – I studied there, and L.A. has the same people as New York. -LeRoy Neiman

The hardest thing in fashion is not to be known for a logo, but to be known for a silhouette. -Giambattista Valli

I'm a little old-fashioned. -Barbara Bush

As for the world of fashion and celebrity, I have the usual interest in the human comedy, but the problems of depiction absorb me more. -David Hockney

My favorite meal would have to be good old-fashioned eggs, over easy, with bacon. Many others, but you can't beat that on a Sunday morning, especially with a cup of tea. -Gary Oldman

I like a cheese and pickle. Nice cheese and pickle on a real old-fashioned bread. Ploughman's lunch. -Gary Oldman

I like to talk to people. I've got one assistant, one Blackberry. That's my overhead. I don't text that much or email. I like to sit down face-to-face and have a conversation with you. I'm old-fashioned. -Mark Wahlberg

Music is part of the life of fashion, too. -Karl Lagerfeld

T-shirts for ten dollars are even more fashion today than expensive fashion. -Karl Lagerfeld

The importance of logo into today's fashion is un! be! Lievable! -Karl Lagerfeld

I always loved advertising. If I hadn't been in fashion, I'd have been in advertising. -Karl Lagerfeld

Doing collections, doing fashion is like a non-stop dialogue. -Karl Lagerfeld

The story with anorexic girls – nobody works with anorexic girls. That has nothing to do with fashion. -Karl Lagerfeld

I can tell you all kinds of moral tales, but fashion and reality are vaguely different. -Karl Lagerfeld

I would like to be a one-man multinational fashion phenomenon. -Karl Lagerfeld

Yes, I've always been fashion conscious. -Aretha Franklin

I've never been naturally fashion conscious. I'm the kind of person who sees a whole outfit in a magazine, runs out and buys it but looks like a clown. -Brooke Shields

The computer industry is the only industry that is more fashion-driven than women's fashion. -Richard Stallman

I'm not a big fan of the thought that you can become a star by winning a contest. I'm sort of old-fashioned. I think people need to get out there and they need to work and they need to do their music because they love it. If they become successful, then great, and if they are not, whatever. -Rob Zombie

I am going to confront the old-fashioned negative thinking which says that all government needs to do to generate growth is cut worker and environmental protections, cut taxes on the rich and stroke 'fat cats' until they purr with pleasure. I'm completely repudiating the idea that government has to get out of the way. -Vince Cable

My college, Fitzwilliam, was pretty good but unfashionable and I lived in digs so I was not part of the cloistered 'old college' environment, which frankly was a bit intimidating. But I worked hard and settled in by exploring politics and girls. -Vince Cable

I would love to do a live show with dancers and fashion and scenic elements – definitely bring my love of the theater to a concert-style performance. -Adam Lambert

I didn't try and do fashion pictures. I tried to do portraits of girls wearing dresses. -David Bailey

The reason I did fashion was it was the only way to get paid to do anything creative. You couldn't support yourself as an 'artist' – I hate that word. The only way you could be 'arty' was as a fashion photographer, because it still had a certain amount of integrity involved. -David Bailey

You can go through life and actually speak your mind and do it in an articulate fashion and with a really intelligent point of view. -David Duchovny

I think 1973 was the nadir of fashion. When you watch the coverage from that era, you're struck by the astonishing ugliness of the clothes. -John Malkovich

I always wanted to be fashionable. -John Malkovich

Scary monsters are like Hula Hoops. They come in and out of fashion. -John Malkovich

Paris is paramount for fashion, always was – always will be. -Manolo Blahnik

What is fashion? It's discipline. Discipline and a credo to do only the best, down to the smallest detail. -Manolo Blahnik

I don't consider myself a fashion designer. -Manolo Blahnik

It is London fashion week, and once again I haven't been invited to any shows. This is upsetting given my well-known love of fashion, or, as I think of it, playing with the dressing-up box. -Arthur Smith

Obviously I am not bothered about men's fashion – is anyone, apart from Jonathan Ross? -Arthur Smith

It's true, too, that I'm tired of using books as political bullets and grenades. Books are too precious and wonderful to be used for long in such a fashion. -Yann Martel

It's become unfashionable to celebrate political achievement, and Labour achievement even less so. And it's positively uncouth to be proud of something that this Labour government is doing. So, slam me for saying so, but I'm really proud of the NHS. -Lucy Powell

I'm kind of an old-fashioned guy. -Joe Arpaio

It has become fashionable to rail against government intervention in the economy, and the FHA is a favorite example by those trying to show the government's overreach. In reality, the FHA shows how government action during the Great Recession forestalled a much worse economic fate. -Mark Zandi

I think music influences fashion and has done so for generations. -Georgia May Jagger

I like the fact that I have good old-fashioned British teeth with a big gap. -Georgia May Jagger

I was always interested in fashion and beauty. I was fifteen when I was scouted in a flea market. Two years later, I arrived in New York. I was in awe because it was like another planet. -Candice Swanepoel

Photography obviously lends itself so well towards fashion. It's capturing that moment and that inspiration, and as a designer you are constantly walking through the world assimilating those visual references you have and so being able to solidify that into a photograph and keep it on your mood board is essential to creating a collection. -Georgina Chapman

I enjoyed studying costume, learning about the corsetry and the historical context of fashion. I never had any real intention of being a costume designer. -Georgina Chapman

I really think that creating clothes and fashion has to be a statement about how we live and where we live and what's happening in the world. -Sarah Burton

I don't really believe in rules, but I do like old-fashioned dating where you don't call the guy until he calls you. I don't think it's like he's got to do this and that's the rule. -Ashley Tisdale

There are so many emoticons these days, I'm kind of old fashioned. -Ashley Tisdale

I love clothes and I love fashion. -Ashley Tisdale

I don't think I've ever had a real fashion disaster. -Clive Owen

If I'm censoring for anyone, it's for my parents. They are very old-fashioned and moral people. They still don't understand me that well. -Joni Mitchell

People are still emulating the old fashioned criminal. -Shia LaBeouf

Obviously fashion is a completely different world from football. -Zinedine Zidane

The key to fashion is, you don't want to look like you're trying. You've gotta be natural. -Hakeem Olajuwon

I was born in the '60s and grew up in the '70s – not exactly the best decade for food in British history. It was horrendous. It was a time when, as a nation, we excelled in art and music and acting and photography and fashion – all creative skills… all apart from cooking. -Heston Blumenthal

This kitchen is completely calm. Some of the old-fashioned chefs – they become kings in their kitchen, they've got to be called chef. But I don't care if someone calls me chef or Heston, it really doesn't bother me. -Heston Blumenthal

When thinking about the future, it is fashionable to be pessimistic. Yet the evidence unequivocally belies such pessimism. Over the past centuries, humanity's lot has improved dramatically – in the developed world, where it is rather obvious, but also in the developing world, where life expectancy has more than doubled in the past 100 years. -Bjorn Lomborg

When we started Skype, if you look at analyst reports, no one forecasted it as a big business. Also when Google started, it was not fashionable to be in search. It's not trying to do the obvious – that's the hard part. -Niklas Zennstrom

You can do a lot with Scotch tape. Almost anything! I love that you can hem a dress, and its an instant remedy in a fashion crises. -Jennifer Garner

London is a good fashion city. They're a little more daring. There's the element of the aristocracy, which is always interesting. -John Legend

I don't look at fashion the way other people do. -Helena Christensen

It's incredible to have been part of fashion history – my whole career has been one big highlight. -Helena Christensen

I like fashion. I like being in shape. I like to look nice and I like to make money, but I don't think that's the most, No. 1, important thing. -Eleanor Mondale

I think violence, cynicism, brutality and fashion are the staples of our diet. I think in the grand history of story-telling, going back to people sitting around fires, the dark side of human nature has always been very important. Movies are part of that tradition. -Eric Stoltz

I am very old-fashioned about marriage. It is for life and I mean it. I always knew that when I met the right girl, the life I had before – being single, in a band, girls everywhere – would be over. -Gary Numan

A couple of years after I arrived in Hollywood, everything that was Latino was fashionable, and years after, my thought is that we're not fashionable anymore. We're here to stay. -Antonio Banderas

The only way I'm interested in having a baby is the old-fashioned way. -Bethenny Frankel

The ultimate art form of fashion is couture. I completely geek out when it comes to couture. It shows fashion as it used to be. I don't know how many people can actually afford the clothes, but in a way, that's beside the point. -Diane Kruger

The goal is always to do B material in an A fashion. -J. J. Abrams

I never thought I'd be some fashion mogul! -Jessica Simpson

I'm very old fashioned. -Jessica Simpson

I think what's wrong with the fashion world, particularly men's fashion, is the lack of creativity behind it. -Macklemore

I definitely have an appreciation for fashion. -Mia Wasikowska

I wasn't naturally drawn to fashion when I was younger but with my work I'm so exposed to what's out there that I'm hoping my style has become a little more sophisticated. -Natalie Imbruglia

The biggest thing politically within fashion is that the clothing should be displayed on different body shapes. -Zac Posen

So many people are following fashion now. It's become fashion-tainment. -Zac Posen

I have so many fashion mistakes, but that's part of being in fashion. I think the people that you see make the most mistakes are usually the best dressers. -Zac Posen

I love fashion, but it's always been my job, whereas horseriding is my hobby. -Carson Kressley

That distinctive presidential conduct is now gone forever, banished to the snows of yesteryear by Barack Obama. From the beginning of his presidency to the present, he has spoken specifically and in unprecedented fashion of Republicans as his rivals, his stumbling blocks, the primary cause of his troubles. -John Podhoretz

Don't be afraid to express yourself through fashion! -Chanel Iman

When I was a little girl, I lived for modeling and fashion – I used to love, love, love modeling. -Chanel Iman

My goal is to be a household name, and when I do that, I want to help other girls become models, and maybe even launch a fashion line with my mom, like Beyonce did with her mother. My mom has such a good eye, and it's always been a dream of hers. -Chanel Iman

If we're going to get this country out of its current energy situation, we can't just conserve our way out; we can't just drill our way out; we can't bomb our way out. We're going to do it the old-fashioned American way, we're going to invent our way out, working together. -Donald Sadoway

When I started, department stores were either very fashion, or very tailored, so the two never mixed. I mixed it, and they said you're too tailored for fashion and too fashion for tailoring. So I had to move the market. So that's what I did. -Ozwald Boateng

Tailoring was considered to be a world that was very traditional, and basically going out of fashion. Fashion designers did not have a real link with tailoring or tradition, so I fused the two worlds together. -Ozwald Boateng

I have my fashion empire to build. -Ozwald Boateng

Unfortunately I'm still not a fashion expert. -Magnus Carlsen

I became obsessed watching fashion TV shows when I was a teenager and recognized that I had the height and body frame. I especially became hooked when I saw on 'E! True Hollywood Story' how much a model can make and how I can achieve a better living for my family and me. -Joan Smalls

The main thing I love about street photography is that you find the answers you don't see at the fashion shows. You find information for readers so they can visualize themselves. -Bill Cunningham

The best fashion show is definitely on the street. Always has been, and always will be. -Bill Cunningham

I always had an interest in fashion because my mom is a celebrity fashion stylist. I grew up being on set or in showrooms. -Jasmine Tookes

When you don't understand the fashion world you're just grateful you get to wear good clothes. -Anton Yelchin

It's great to admire other people's fashion choices, but I don't think you should idolise anyone. -Cat Deeley

My passion is my family and the world of fashion. -Claudia Schiffer

When God put everybody here, I don't think that he had a master plan of a pecking order. That's not what you see in the Bible. I disagree with that notion, so in my estimation, we've all been put on this planet to share it. It is our duty and our obligation and our responsibility to make sure that we've done so in the proper fashion. -Corey Feldman

I've always enjoyed fashion and dressing up for things, whether it's high fashion or play fashion. -Darren Criss

Fashion is about owning whatever you're wearing, regardless of if it's a high fashion statement or not. -Darren Criss

I'm a mum, so my wardrobe consists of sweaters and jeans. As long as I don't leave the house forgetting my jeans, I count that as a fashion success. -Gail Porter

What has happened to the good old-fashioned travel agent? I want to go to a really posh travel agent and have them organise everything for me. I don't want to do things on the Internet. -Jenny Eclair

I just don't know anything about fashion. -Kit Harington

What doesn't confuse me about what women wear? When it comes to women's fashion I'm so oblivious. I have no idea what's going on. -Paul Wesley

I don't think a living being should suffer for the sake of fashion, period. End of story. You don't have to kill an animal just because you want to be hot and fly. And I really stand by that. -Taraji P. Henson

Being nerdy just means being passionate about something, including everyone – the coolest people on Earth are passionate and therefore nerdy about something whatever it is, whether it's sports, or gaming, or technology, or fashion, or beauty, or food, or whatever. -Zachary Levi

Leadership must be likeable, affable, cordial, and above all emotional. The fashion of authoritarian leadership is gone. Football is about life. You can't be angry all day. -Vicente del Bosque

I'm so excited for my first fragrance! I chose to partner with Dots because I love what they do for their customers, bringing them the hottest trends in fashion, accessories and fragrance at unbelievably low prices. It's amazing! -Jordin Sparks

I love doing fashion. -Khloe Kardashian

From time to time I think I made some errors in judgment, but I have some really fashionable friends and I feel I've cultivated my own sense of style and what I feel comfortable with over the years. -Busy Philipps

In high school I had some famously egregious fashion missteps. I was really out there in fashion, I think because I wanted attention. I would wear crazy patterns, skin-tight pants and giant platform shoes. -Busy Philipps

I think it's important for kids to express themselves with bad fashion. I struggle a little bit now because I have a daughter and I feel with fashion, like they're sexualizing the kids so young. Little kids in high heels and that kind of thing is really difficult for me to wrap my head around. -Busy Philipps

I've been a fashion model for 15 years and designing is just an extension of my career. I still plan on modeling lingerie, but at the same time this is a business transition that I plan to have around for a long time. -Alessandra Ambrosio

It's just really important I think for fashion to be affordable, because everyone should have the opportunity to wear cute things and be happy and comfortable in what they are wearing. That's definitely how I like to shop and how I like to think about clothes and fashion. -Lea Michele

I've always been a fan of Nintendo. My first memories of playing games are on my Nintendo 64 with 'Mario Kart,' so when I found out that Nintendo 3DS made a fashion game, I was drawn to it. 'Style Savvy Trendsetters' is great because anyone can play it. -Sarah Hyland

Lately, I've been playing very fashion-forward, popular girls, which is great because it's led me to things like this Nintendo 3DS 'Style Savvy' campaign. It'd be fun to do something a bit dorkier – or quirkier! -Sarah Hyland

'That's What She Said' is not Hollywood's standard picture of women: preternaturally gorgeous, wedding obsessed, boy crazy, fashion focused, sexed up 'girl' women. These are real women, comically portrayed, who are trying to wrestle with the very expectations of womanhood that Hollywood movies set up. -Carrie Preston

Right now I'm reading every fashion magazine I can find. As a shoe designer, I feel it's my responsibility to learn as much as I can about the business, past and present. -Fergie

I have always loved fashion because it's a great way to express your mood. And I'm definitely a shoe lover. The right pair of shoes can change the feel of an outfit, and even change how a woman feels about herself. A woman can wear confidence on her feet with a high stiletto, or slip into weekend comfort with a soft ballet flat. -Fergie

And I had always liked vampire stories because they are great material that can be refashioned in lots of ways. -Justin Cronin

I get inspiration from movies, from fashion, then completely random things you'd never think of. -Santigold

You know, I was really privileged to meet Woody Allen, who is now a filmmaker, let's be honest. He's also an actor. And he's classic. And because I have no conception of what classic fashion is now, I respond to his slightly outdated sensibilities. -Ezra Miller

I love fashion. Over the past year I've got heavily into it. -Joe Jonas

I'm an old-fashioned guy. -Demian Bichir

The fashion industry isn't merely content to encase my meaty flanks in skintight denim. Oh, no! That denim also has to be white, a color that attracts ketchup, wine, garlic aioli, and any other foodstuffs I might otherwise be able to enjoy if I wasn't wearing ridiculously tight pants. -Diablo Cody

Now that I work as a professional model, I advise people to stay away from any television shows. It's a waste of your time; it's just entertainment. It's not the fashion that we now know. -Fatima Siad

Basically, I didn't know anything about fashion. I was very nerdy; I went to Bryn Mawr and never even noticed models when I was 21. -Fatima Siad

I've never felt that I've had some great fashion sense of my own – I tend to wear what my wife tells me to wear. -Alessandro Nivola

Models are just mannequins seeking validation at the hands of sleazy fashion people. -Amber Heard

I seem to be stuck in the '60s, and my favorite music, cars, and women's fashion come from that era. And the sense of social rebellion. It was a good time for a lot of things. -Amber Heard

I went to a public high school and most of the comedy was coming from the black kids and the Asian kids and the Hispanic kids. And, the coolest kids to me where always the black kids. They were always fashion forward and they always dressed the coolest. They were always the best dancers, and just the coolest people. -Brett Ratner

No one knows anything about the fashion industry in Brazil. They don't care what you do. They just want the beach and the sun and the fun. I feel the freest and the happiest there. -Candice Swanepoel

The '60s are my favorite decade – with the Cold War, the women's movement. And then there's the music, the fashion, the clothes, the hair. -Margot Robbie

I love to go to casinos with my wife. I play poker, and she's an old-fashioned slot queen. She even has a visor. -Patrick Wilson

I've never graced the cover of a fashion magazine. -Vera Farmiga

I like things that are hand made – but personally for a man, I'm not interested in fashion that evolves with time. I like things to be the same. For a woman I think it's fantastic to have things that are different – it's like a flower where every season there's some new exotic bloom. -Roman Coppola

I'd love to go to fashion week! I'm learning more about designers, thanks to 'Pretty Little Liars' costume designer, Mandi Line. -Lucy Hale

I love good old-fashioned black or white Converse. I have a few pairs. And they are all really dirty. I can't have clean Converse – I go in the dirt and run around! -Ashley Benson

James Franco has this interesting and relaxed look. It's pretty 'I don't care,' but it still looks good. Ryan Gosling also has amazing style. I take a lot of my fashion tips from those two. In my opinion, they're the ones getting it right. -Josh Henderson

I was a VP of marketing, I was regional sales manager in fashion, and marketing director in communications and product development. I was always a corporate Fortune 500 girl. -Patti Stanger

But if fashion were easy, wouldn't everybody look great? -Tim Gunn

I've never mentioned this, but when I was at Parsons teaching, the other design disciplines, they don't like fashion design. They see it as very nineteenth-century. -Tim Gunn

With fashion, you really need to understand the aspects of construction. Not just design on an iPad. -Tim Gunn

I like individuality in fashion – it annoys me when celebrities put on a bodycon dress and a pair of high heels and suddenly they are 'style icons.' -Georgie Henley

I'm an actor, that's what I do every day. Dressing up is part of my job. But whatever you wear you should always be yourself: never go totally with the fashion but use what there is available to be an individual. -Vincent Cassel

In regards to being a fashion aficionado, there's a certain amount of taking yourself seriously in the professional world. The self-effacing person can't completely go down the serious road. But I design, and love when things are beautiful. -St. Vincent

One of my core values is to help redefine what it means to be a strong and beautiful woman in the music and fashion worlds and to empower the wonderful things that make us unique. -Janelle Monae

I never had worked in high fashion before, had never experienced it when I was a model before. I appreciate it, being able to work with such talented people; it feels like a gift now. I think for everyone everything happens at the right time, and this is my time. -Saskia de Brauw

My wife is very interested in fashion. I am absolutely not. I couldn't give a toss. Fashion is a perfectly valid thing to be interested in. I'm just not particularly interested in pop culture. I think I am more interested in things that have a settled permanence about them. -Simon Winchester

L.A. fashion is like lip injections. That confuses me. That's become not just a thing. It's become fashion, part of your outfit. But hey, to each his own. -Kenny Wormald

You can't just come from Kansas, go into fashion and be all naive. The fashion world is very different to where I'm from. -Lindsey Wixson

No texting. What happens then? Good old-fashioned letters. -Lorene Scafaria

The CW is a very fashion-oriented network and they like their stars to look a certain way. I like that, but at the same time, I need Nikita to be toned down a bit. You can't draw too much attention to Nikita because she's an assassin. -Maggie Q

Vampires are so old that they don't need to impress anyone anymore. They're comfortable in their own skin. It's this enigmatic strength that's very romantic and old-fashioned. I think it goes back to something of a Victorian attitude of finding a strong man who's going to look after his woman. -Stephen Moyer

I wear lots of Junk de Luxe sweaters, Cult of Individuality jeans – which are about the best for me – and Fiorentini + Baker boots. With fashion I'm good on jeans and boots. Ask me about anything else, and I'll just look at you doe-eyed and not understand what you're talking about. -Stephen Moyer

When I got out of acting school, I was lucky to have gotten any job at all. A lot of people hiring African American actresses – it was right after 'Roots,' and for society, not me, it was great. Nice richly dark-skinned people was the fashion, and I was not. -Anna Deavere Smith

It is extremely important to me that the social and environmental issues associated with the production of fashion clothing are addressed. -Bonnie Wright

I'm really not for famous people who design a line for a company, when you know it's not really them creating it but a team of designers, especially when there are so many talented people who've taken the time to go and study fashion. -Bonnie Wright

I guess I've always been really strong minded about what I wear; I've never followed what other people consider fashionable or what styles are happening at the time. -Bonnie Wright

I never have an opinion about clothes and know nothing about fashion. -Dylan O'Brien

Vests are flair for men. It's one of the few ways men can accent themselves in a formal yet fun fashion. -Eric Wareheim

My style has definitely grown since moving to New York and working on 'Gossip Girl.' I'm more aware of a lot of designers and I'm more aware of fashion. -Jessica Szohr

The true essence of fashion is being able to reinvent yourself with what you have. -Melanie Fiona

I'm not anti-fashion, but I've always had a bit of a punk attitude. That's important, I think. I do my own thing. -Sade Adu

When I write, I'm sort of old-fashioned in the sense that I like to write something that I feel I could just perform alone, obviously, because I do that a lot in concert. -Sondre Lerche

I am very proud of the fact that I get to go out there every day and train in order to represent the Mexican people, and I can only hope they look up to me in a similar fashion. -Victor Ortiz

Things go in cycles. It's like fashion, like flares go out then skinny jeans come in, people want something fresh. It's the strongest ever urban scene at the moment and I hope it can progress and keep getting stronger and be the base for something larger. -Katy B

Both Kennedy and Obama exuded a dash of glamour in their roles as commander-in-chief and became the darlings of Hollywood. As president, each brought to the White House a fashionable and accomplished First Lady, two adorable young children and scene-stealing pets. -Kitty Kelley

Sinclair Lewis may be ripe for a revival; his books raise several interesting issues of art and fashion. -Jane Smiley

Novelists of a conservative or more purely aesthetic bent hold up better on the surface, but their novels go in and out of fashion according to relevance or irrelevance. -Jane Smiley

It's becoming clearer and clearer to me that the world is there to be celebrated by writers, and in fact this is what all the good ones do, and that the great fashion for gloom and grimness was in fact a false path that certain writers took, I think in response to the horrors of the first half of the twentieth century. -Martin Amis

Gary Numan had a huge influence on both my music and my style. He had his own unique fashion sense – that futuristic space style. It was out there. -Mayer Hawthorne

Just because I worked in fashion doesn't mean I didn't go to see 'Underworld' three times! -Melissa de la Cruz

I think sometimes the fashion world isn't even about clothes anymore; it's about this 'in' crowd, and I'm not into that. -Nicki Minaj

I worked at a hot dog place, a bagel place, the Jersey Store and the hottest fashion joint around. I was getting too famous to work there anymore. I was almost showing up as a joke. I made $2,000 on my show the previous night and I'm going to go shopping during my five-hour shift. -Wale

Travel aesthetics should be just as comfortable and practical as they are fashionable. -Miguel

I almost always do things that I like, in some form or fashion. Every once in awhile that means that I don't think the script is any good and I don't have any trust in the people, but the film is shooting in Sri Lanka, or somewhere like that, so I'm going. -Billy Campbell

I would love to see a sequel to 'The Rocketeer.' I'd love to see that! I don't know that I would be in it. I may be a little long in the tooth to play 'The Rocketeer.' But I would love to be a part of that in some form or fashion. -Billy Campbell

I just sing and write songs and wear what I want. It's quite a good job really. If I wanted to I suppose I could become more of a fashion icon, but singing is my thing. -Ellie Goulding

I can fall in love in a simple way, but I can dissect it in such an intense fashion when it ends. -Ellie Goulding

I don't really have a style icon but I really admire the way people dress like Gaga, Rihanna and Gwen Stefani. It's good to be inspired by singers who write music and dress incredibly – rather than models and people in the fashion industry who dress immaculately anyway because it's their style. -Ellie Goulding

I thought to be feminine was to give in to straight culture, or the beauty standard, but in my heart I had a flair for fashion and style. They were passions I kept secret because I didn't understand I could love clothes and hair and makeup and still like girls. -Beth Ditto

I certainly know first hand the waste one lady can create through her primping routine, because I am a victim of fashion: to me a day without makeup and a bouffant to match is a day wasted. I love it all – whether it's fancy, cheap or, I'm ashamed to say, even if it's bad for the environment. -Beth Ditto

All this fashion stuff – who's cool now – is just a bigger version of the cool kids versus the nerds. -Beth Ditto

We're living in what I like to call the 'Thank You Economy,' because only the companies that can figure out how to mind their manners in a very old-fashioned way – and do it authentically – are going to have a prayer of competing. -Gary Vaynerchuk

When my shoes are killing me, I take a maxi pad and put it in the bottom of my shoe. It is better than any Dr. Scholl's insert. That fashion tip has saved me through some long nights. -Hoda Kotb

Growing up in an old-fashioned Bengali Hindu family and going to a convent school run by stern Irish nuns, I was brought up to revere rules. Without rules, there was only anarchy. -Bharati Mukherjee

The poetry and transgression that was so much of surrealism's anarchic force has been recruited into mainstream culture. It has been made commonplace by television and magazine merchandising, by computer games and Internet visuals, by film and MTV, by the fashion shoot. -Graham Joyce

I'll tell you why I like writing: it's just jumping into a pool. I get myself into a kind of trance. I engage the world, but it's also wonderful to just escape. I try to find the purities out of the confusion. It's pretty old-fashioned, but it's fun. -Barry Hannah

Punk's influence on music, movies, art, design and fashion is no longer in doubt. It is used as the measurement for what is cool. -Malcolm Mclaren

Don't shift because fashion has shifted. Don't move from the original ethic you had, the original reasons. They're part and parcel of you. -Roy Harper

I do enjoy fashion – a lot of runway clothes are pretty unwearable, but if moderated, the trends can be worn by just about anyone. -Jane Asher

We have this wonderful language and we don't appreciate it. That's old-fashioned me, but when I went to school, everyone had elocution lessons, not to sound posh but so you could be understood. -Penelope Keith

I've always loved fashion. -Rachel Bilson

The fashion world is much more ephemeral than the film industry and moves at a faster pace, and it's got even more frenetic since the Nineties; more paparazzi hanging about and it seems to me there are even more fashion magazines. -Richard E. Grant

Watching the evening news in 2011 is a strange time-travel experience. 'The CBS Evening News,' 'ABC World News' and 'NBC Nightly News' haven't changed their style over the decades, still going for that old-fashioned mix of voice-of-authority pomp and feel-good fluff. The difference is that people aren't watching. -Rob Sheffield

We have seven pillars of development. India has a cutting edge information technology industry. We are setting up a technology park. We would like to see technology penetration iin education. Besides, we would like to see cooperation in industries like fashion, filmmaking, ship-building, education, health and energy. -Kamla Persad-Bissessar

I am not one of those fat birds who feels miserable because models are thin. Frankly, I feel more insulted by the idea that unless I see other fat birds in fashion magazines, I will be reduced to a sniveling wreck of a human being. -Julie Burchill

No matter how old and glorious the models, sad indeed is the woman who sees fashion as a means of self-expression rather than an agent of social control. -Julie Burchill

I mean the future has become old fashioned. -Baz Luhrmann

Sometimes there's a sense of closing yourself off on a shoot, and I try not to do that. Sometimes you have to, like when you're in a studio and you're doing fashion shooting, but I don't even do it then. -Bruce Weber

I guess, as a conductor, one goes in and out of fashion. Your career starts with a bang, everyone thinks you're wonderful, and then with middle age, something happens and you go into the wilderness. -Jeffrey Tate

I'm not old-fashioned when it comes to dating, but there's something nice about a guy pulling out a girl's chair and opening the door for her, even if it's just in the beginning. -Lauren Conrad

A lot of people in fashion don't want to be linked with anything that has to do with reality TV. -Lauren Conrad

I love Thandie Newton. I love her fashion sense as she is just really classic. -Leona Lewis

I do love a bit of fashion. I grew up around a lot of it as my mum and dad had clothing stores so my mum was always designing a lot, and I definitely had that as an influence. -Leona Lewis

The fashion industry is completely different from the acting industry, but definitely the same as well, because there's cattiness and competition just like in the modeling world. -Sara Paxton

I get told all the time that I'm a fashion icon now, but I don't really know what that means. I just get dressed. -Taylor Momsen

I love fashion and there is no easier way to express yourself than through the clothes you wear. -Victoria Justice

I have always loved fashion, but I have no expertise in it besides being a model. -Kellan Lutz

My mother's family were full-on Irish Catholics – faith in an elaborate old fashioned, highly conservative and madly baroque style. I sort of fell out of the tribe over women's rights and social justice issues when I was just 13 years old. -Geraldine Brooks

James Taylor may be an all-American boy but he isn't Horatio Alger, and the lionizing of many rock stars by the rock press has as much to do with old fashioned rags-to-riches stories as does the straight culture's deification of its idols. -Jon Landau

On the surface, rock and roll changes at an amazing pace. The influence of a figure like the Maharishi can appear and disappear in a matter of months. Talk about old fashioned rock and roll finds itself dead before it begins. -Jon Landau

The way I started playing music was sitting around with friends and singing songs. I love good ol' fashioned guitar pulls. -Rodney Atkins

Fashion is fickle, and I was published because I was fashionable. Because I was gay. -Ali Smith

There's no platform for an unsigned music scene in the main cities – it's all hyped acts or showcases behind closed doors. I read about artists that are doing it 'the old-fashioned way' and touring, as if that's a unique thing to do – well, that should just be the way it is. -Ben Lovett

I'm getting my respect as a video director. The fashion industry respects me and knows who I am. -ASAP Rocky

So for me, fashion was about standing out as an individual – and it helped me get the attention that most people try to get with publicity stunts or by doing other crazy things. But I just let the attention come to me naturally, and I think some of that has to do with my fashion. -ASAP Rocky

I wanted to appeal to people who've never really listened to hip-hop or really given it a chance before. I've also tried to incorporate all my favorite lifestyle things in the music. Of course, 'Fashion Killa' is one of peoples' favorites because it just expresses how much I like fashion. -ASAP Rocky

I'm going to be a fashion icon in a minute. I'm not going to do it in a corny manner. I have a voice that speaks for a whole other market – not just black people, but high fashion urban people. I mix street wear with high fashion. It's never been seen before. -ASAP Rocky

Sometimes I feel like what's hard for fashion designers to do is take looks from off the runway and actually put it into existence, into reality. That's really the hard part. -ASAP Rocky

I have a Rolex, but no diamonds. Rappers wear diamonds to compensate for a lack of fashion sense. I don't even have pierced ears – I'm not into that; it's too much. -ASAP Rocky

At the age of eight I started getting into fashion, brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica and Ralph Lauren. But in 2005 I started wearing John Richmond jeans. -ASAP Rocky

It would be disrespectful to take my stardom and bully my way into the fashion industry. -ASAP Rocky

But I was always much more interested in reading fashion magazines than I was music magazines when I was a teenager. Just that sense of romanticism and escapism and the dream of it has always been quite alluring to me, as well as that sense of becoming a character through clothes. -Florence Welch

Music to me is so internal. It's physical and it's emotional. Whereas fashion is so much about the external that it's almost like a break. It's not inner turmoil. It's total escapism. -Florence Welch

I like to find the beauty in the ugly. When I'm in a thrift store, I gravitate toward pieces I know I'll wear a ton, and insane pieces that I'm sure most people would consider gross. But I find them inspiring. Our van is currently stocked with some of my random findings from this tour. Maybe I'll call my aesthetic 'van fashion.' -Victoria Legrand

I think fashion is the best value way, the most affordable way in the 21st century, that men and women can express their personality. -Stuart Rose

I like fashion, but I love, love, love music and film; they are my two passions. I would love to pursue my acting and my love of music more than anything. -Cara Delevingne

No one else in my family works in the fashion industry. -Liu Wen

You cannot get into business for the fashion of it. -Azim Premji

I want to remind people of a different kind of glamour, a different look, and breaking the rules of fashion. I wanna break the rules. -Dita Von Teese

I love to play the guitar. I also love photography and fashion. -Emily Osment

I'll be honest; I'm a student of fashion. I say that because I just wear what I feel. I'm not led by name brands and things like that. -Keri Hilson

I think I'm probably just an old-fashioned Tory. I don't wake up each morning trying to figure out what kind of Conservative I am; for me it's quite instinctive. -Sebastian Coe

I make 98% of my collection in New York City and am generating jobs, so fashion isn't just frivolous for me. I understand levity about it. I also understand the depth of it. -Prabal Gurung

I decided if it was going to be a mistake to come to New York and try and make a career in fashion, then it was going to be my mistake… But the American dream is real. I'm living it. -Prabal Gurung

I've never been in love with fashion, actually; trends and catwalks don't interest me. I love clothes; I love them historically and currently. They represent a spirit of the times and the zeitgeist. -Tim Walker

When I was at college, the idea of fashion was more immediate to me, whereas art photography, the depth of it, was a different thing. Storytelling – fanciful storytelling – can only be told through fashion photography. It's the perfect way to play with fantasy and dreams. -Tim Walker

I'm merely a fan of fashion from high end to streetwear, from Nike to Comme des Garcons. -Tinie Tempah

I find my dress sense tends to be a bit of a mixture between high fashion and unique vintage pieces with a little bit of street trends. For example, I might find a really nice, suede dinner jacket that I'd wear with a basic plain white shirt and some chinos and a pair of Nike trainers. -Tinie Tempah

This is the kind of fashion I grew up on – a good pair of trainers, great denim – and I will always love high-end streetwear. -Tinie Tempah

Clothes are interesting and they're there to be played with. I like the idea of costume rather than fashion. -Orla Brady

I am ridiculously old-fashioned. -Gerhard Richter

I remember the first time Dakota asked me for fashion advice about what to put with what. I was like, 'My big sister is asking me?' -Elle Fanning

I don't really go to fashion parties; they're not my scene. -Agyness Deyn

I pride myself on being courteous to people, and trying to fashion good relations. -John Bercow

I don't want to be doing fashion shoots and being interviewed about where I shop. Who cares? -Kelly Reilly

I certainly don't follow fashion. I think fashion, as far as the industry and the whole world that surrounds it, is quite vile, and I'm repelled by it. -Mika

I'm tall with broad shoulders. And my waist is small. I'm into fashion, so I like the way clothes lay on me. I'm pretty much a normal person's size, just stretched out. -Tyson Chandler

If I'm getting dressed up, I love Alice + Olivia, they have great pieces. I still look at all of the and I read all of the fashion blogs. I'm working my way up to more grown up pieces. -Candice Accola

I've spent some time working with a non-Italian designer; I've been helping him organize fashion shows, the advertising, also helping with the creative part. But the great part about this work is that I am no one! -Allegra Versace

I'm tired of being considered vapid for liking pop music or caring about fashion as if these things inherently lack substance or as if the things I enjoy somehow make me a lesser person. -Grimes

I want to make Grimes a high-fashion sci-fi act. -Grimes

In the mid-nineties, diversity in the fashion/beauty business was hard to come by. -Joy Bryant

I still don't consider myself a fashion girl. -Megyn Kelly

Before I got into TV, I wasn't fashionable at all. -Megyn Kelly

I love fashion. -Mollie King

It's become fashionable these days to say that the writer writes because he is not whole, he has a wound, he writes to heal it, but who cares if the writer is not whole; of course the writer is not whole, or even particularly well. -Joy Williams

My husband is old-fashioned and kind, he does the greatest Sinatra impression, and I'd never have written anything if he hadn't read all those bedtime stories and unloaded the dishwasher while I slaved over chapters. -Allison Pearson

I was raised in a very old fashioned Ireland where women were reared to be lovely. -Anne Enright

I would like to attribute my range of interests to being an independent intellectual, but although I'm independent, I'm not sure I qualify as an intellectual. Basically, I'm an old-fashioned amateur. -Anne Fadiman

It's not very fashionable, but I love life, and I believe that things disappear and reappear and nothing ever solidifies, no matter how middle-class, housebroken, staid, and solitary someone's life seems to be. That, I think, is what I'm writing about. -Colum McCann

'No Sweetness Here' is the kind of old-fashioned social realism I have always been drawn to in fiction, and it does what I think all good literature should: It entertains you. -Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Modern society has evolved to the point where we counter the old-fashioned fatalism surrounding the word 'cancer' by embracing the idea of the Uber-mind – that our will possesses nearly supernatural powers. -Abraham Verghese

In France the music schools are a bit old fashioned. I was more excited about doing my own stuff or to play with my friend in my band, than studying the piano. -Yann Tiersen

As parents, we need to send our kids back to 'old-fashioned' outdoor summer camps, which have been on the decline as the demand for sports and academics-based camps has risen. We need to fight budget cuts to public parks programs and resist closures of public swimming pools and playgrounds. -Darell Hammond

I would never design anything. I just think that's kind of wack. I hated every rapper fashion line that ever came out, you know what I'm saying? I would never try. -Danny Brown

In terms of fashion, I think the biggest influence that I had was my father. My pops, he was really into men's fashion and read all of the magazines. -Danny Brown

It may seem unfashionable to say so, but historians should seize the imagination as well as the intellect. History is, in a sense, a story, a narrative of adventure and of vision, of character and of incident. It is also a portrait of the great general drama of the human spirit. -Peter Ackroyd

By the late Nineties, we had become a more visual nation. Big-money taste moved to global standards – new architecture, design and show-off contemporary art. The Sloane domestic aesthetic – symmetry, class symbolism and brown furniture – became as unfashionable as it had been hot in the early Eighties. -Peter York

All brands, whether high-ticket luxury ones such as Cartier or Rolls-Royce or 'masstige' ones with luxe-y overtones but altogether more affordable, all want to grow. Even brands that may have started in a modestly niche design and lifestyle fashion can find themselves under pressure to go global or to sell out at the top. -Peter York

Tabloid discussion of bad children always blames baby-boomer liberals, careerist mothers and fashion-crazed Nathan Barley types who think it's all enormously funny. But the centre-leftish psycho-thinker Oliver James says it's all down to the Thatcher-and-after culture of turbo-capitalism, making people acquisitive and unsatisfied. -Peter York

Fashion people think that the careful Nice companies are boring beyond measure. (Nice people think fashionistas look silly and should Get A Life). -Peter York

I made my money the old-fashioned way; I inherited it. I think that's a great thing to do. -John Raese

Justice Rehnquist was friendly and unpretentious. He wore scuffed Hush Puppy shoes. That was my first lesson. Clothes do not make the man. The Justice sported long sideburns and Buddy Holly glasses long after they were fashionable. And he wore loud ties that I am confident were never fashionable. -John Roberts

At Concerned Veterans for America, we've made the case that the defense budget could be targeted for spending reform, but in a targeted fashion that genuinely changes unsustainable spending trajectories while preserving U.S. defense capacity. -Pete Hegseth

I think I have great responsibility, and when I do my music, when I try to relate to my audience, I just try to do it in an honest fashion, you know, just try to be as earnest as possible and sometime it may be self-effacing. Sometimes it may be finger-pointing. Sometimes it may be beautiful, and sometime it may be ugly. -Q-Tip

I believe God controls the universe. I don't believe biology works in an uncontrolled fashion. -Richard Mourdock

Academics, who work for long periods in a self-directed fashion, may be especially prone to putting things off: surveys suggest that the vast majority of college students procrastinate, and articles in the literature of procrastination often allude to the author's own problems with finishing the piece. -James Surowiecki

My house is modern, but I like my writing room to be old fashioned. I write on a little wooden secretary desk. -Janet Fitch

It's great people still care about books, and it's great you can still fashion a life from literature. -John Banville

I believe people think as a group more often than we might realize or care to admit. We like to believe that we act as individuals and nothing more, but time and again – in corporations and business, in politics and religion, in fashion and culture, and in friendships and social circles – we think and do as one. -Joshua Ferris

The '50s in general are written off as a boring decade following the turmoil of the Second World War and its immediate aftermath – the postwar Labour government, the cold war, the arrival of the New Look in fashion, etc. But I remember it as a very exciting time – a pioneering, rule-breaking time, especially for the young. -Lynne Reid Banks

Previous first ladies seemed to feel the need to wear a sort of uniform, whereas Michelle Obama likes fashion and is very comfortable in fashion. She's happy to mix high and low, and she loves emerging designers. That will do nothing but good for our industry. -Anna Wintour

I'm always looking for a cover subject that reflects the magazine, an interest in fashion, in culture, in society. We're trying to bring the world into the pages of 'Vogue.' We do that by tapping into the zeitgeists with our cover subjects. -Anna Wintour

What is required as we travel towards full unemployment is not new legislation but a gradual change of mental attitude, a shift in values. As our taste for idling grows, we will refuse to work for old-fashioned bosses who demand a five-day, 40-hour, nine-to-five type week, or worse. -Tom Hodgkinson

It is still fashionable to believe that how you organize yourself religiously in this life may matter for eternity. Unless we can erode the prestige of that kind of thinking, we're not going to be able to undermine these divisions in our world. -Sam Harris

When I write, I'm still imagining a kid reading it on paper. I read e-books when I travel, but in general I still prefer holding an old-fashioned book in my hands. There's a special, tactile experience. -Rick Riordan

Long-term, we must begin to build our internal strengths. It isn't just skills like computer technology. It's the old-fashioned basics of self-reliance, self-motivation, self-reinforcement, self-discipline, self-command. -Steven Pressfield

I'm regarded outside New York University as a looney tunes leftie, self-hating Jewish communist; inside the university, I'm regarded as a typical, old-fashioned, white male liberal elitist. I like that. I'm on the edge of both; it makes me feel comfortable. -Tony Judt

Every crazy fad from the 1800s comes back or they never go away. It's like fashion, like everything's already been invented, and somebody stumbles onto it and people will always, always be looking for an answer for some vague illness they can't get a diagnosis for. -Mary Roach

When I was little, my parents really only wanted me to be a scientist or a doctor; they had never even heard of law school. I think even these days if you were to tell your mother you want to be a fashion designer, or an artist or a writer, a lot of Asian parents would be alarmed because they don't think that's a secure career. -Amy Chua

The fashion world has always been part of my life. -Willa Holland

I don't believe – till something radical changes that we are not on track to do – that hybrids are material to climate change. They're fashionable, everybody loves them, the Prius is selling well, but so are Gucci bags. But they don't impact the way the world carries stuff. You know it's a fashion statement. -Vinod Khosla

The big advantage that we have as a venture capital firm over a hedge fund or a mutual fund is we have a 13-year lockup on our money. And so enterprise can go in and out of fashion four different times, and we can go and invest in one of these companies, and it's okay, because we can stay the course. -Marc Andreessen

We already have a professor who's using an online social network of MIT alums to help educate students in programming. Just imagine expanding that in Facebook-fashion to tens or hundreds of millions of people around the world. -Anant Agarwal

The art world has become the R&D department for so much fashion and music, so knock-offs are getting better and better. -Marco Brambilla

Most of the time, the artists are not supposed to wear the fashion. It is always seen as a vanity. But I think I don't need to prove anything in my life. I can honestly say I love fashion and I can be many things at the same time. -Marina Abramovic

Of course, I grew up hearing Latin music but, to be honest, aside from my personal circumstances, like most kids I wanted to rebel against what I considered to be such old fashioned fare. -Oscar Hijuelos

I think style is very different from fashion. Fashion was what I went after when I was feeling incredibly insecure and monstrous on the inside. -Stacy London

Being able to choose the skin I live in was the draw of fashion. -Stacy London

Not one person I know isn't concerned with their appearance. To trivialize fashion is to rob ourselves of a great tool. -Stacy London

Fashion is an industry to make money. It plays into human psychology. We want to belong, we want to be loved. I'm not trying to demonize the fashion industry – I love the fashion industry – but style is about taking the control out of the industry's hand and having you decide what works for you. -Stacy London

I can't stand when girls come to me and say they want to be a model, but they can't tell me who the top three photographers are in the world. They can't tell me who the top five biggest models are or name three cosmetics companies. They can't even name the top fashion magazines! You have to get it together and know your stuff. -Kimora Lee Simmons

I don't believe that fashion should exclude people – I have always been about making it accessible to everyone. -Kimora Lee Simmons

A lot of the things I hold onto have memories attached to them. Bags, shoes and jewelry that were given to me from photo shoots and fashion shows throughout my career. -Kimora Lee Simmons

We realized that Elite has the potential to really add value to a company like La Perla, due to its relationship to the fashion business, links to music, to entertainment, all of this tends to point more and more to the luxury consumer. The fashion world is one where Italy has clear excellence. I see the potential with it very clearly. -Silvio Scaglia

Besides music and charity, fashion is one of my interests that has been growing over the past few years. I think it goes so hand in hand, music and fashion. -Tiesto

At first, I was only interested in music, but I spent so much time in the clubs and seeing fashions change. So naturally, I developed an interest in it. -Tiesto

I like 'Elle' magazine. I love things online, like when all the big brands have a fashion show, I like to see the new collections. -Tiesto

It will be great to have a fashion career during and after my DJ career. -Tiesto

Empty-brained triflers who have never tried to think, who take their creed as they take their fashions, speak of atheism as the outcome of foul life and vicious desires. -Annie Besant

Perhaps I am old-fashioned, but black and white films still hold an affectionate place in my heart; they have an incomparable mystique and mood. -Ginger Rogers

Do not write if there is no tremendous urge to do so. At the heart, there must be an inspiration or muse or one of those old-fashioned things. Else, why bore yourself, destroy other people's interest and kill trees? -Vikram Seth

I like people-watching and getting inspiration from the unique people who don't follow any fashion tides. From 12-year-olds who have full freedom, to 86-year-old ladies with a ton of class. -Rila Fukushima

I am more vintage than I am high fashion. -Kat Graham

At school, a careers adviser asked me what I wanted to be, and I said 'fashion journalist,' so writing for 'Vogue' has provided me with the opportunity to fulfill a dream. -Alexa Chung

I worry all the time that I'm going to run out of ideas, you know? I always tell my mom my fashion ideas, because I know she'll remember them. -Alexa Chung

I think it's every girl's dream, a little bit, to be a model because it seems from the outside to be a glamorous industry and I was really into fashion, and I remember just being excited and wanting to be part of that. -Alexa Chung

I learned everything about fashion during my time at the 'NY Times.' -George Kotsiopoulos

For slaves to fashion, the rules are made to be broken. -George Kotsiopoulos

My own fashion sense has been influenced by 'We'll Take Manhattan.' It's gotten a little better. -Karen Gillan

I've always been passionate about fashion. -Billy Porter

All my stuff is men's fashion. It's always oversized shirts, boyfriend blazers and trousers. -Bella Heathcote

I didn't long to be a designer. I always liked fashion, but it was always a bit sleeping in me. -Carolina Herrera

I'm not going to say that I'm perfect. I do have fashion crises. -Carolina Herrera

In general, fashion is challenging. Everything from clothes to fragrances. -Carolina Herrera

Fashion is a dream. It's difficult, and there are many aspects of fashion that are very difficult, but if you love it like I do, because I really have a passion, now, for fashion, it's not easy, but nothing is easy in life. -Carolina Herrera

You have to deal with the fashion egos. You know, there is a lot. It shouldn't be treated that seriously because fashion is only making dresses to make women look beautiful. We're not inventing anything new. -Carolina Herrera

For me, fashion begins in New York. -Carolina Herrera

I rarely go into a shop on holiday, because fashion and design are what I'm involved in every day. I need another world. -Carolina Herrera

I don't approach fashion; fashion approaches me! -Daphne Guinness

In fashion, there are so many gangs, if you identify too much with one, you get caught – I would lose my freedom. -Daphne Guinness

There are a lot of people who do a lot of things to be outrageous with fashion, hair or makeup. -Daphne Guinness

I think as a pregnant woman we're all looking for stuff that makes us all look cute and fashionable and feel sexy when we're pregnant. -Jodie Sweetin

I'm such a bad shopper for myself. I love fashion and all that kind of stuff, but that's sort of the last thing I want to do when I'm done with a film is go shopping. I want to just chill. -Malin Akerman

To tell you the truth, I don't really follow what men wear. Men's fashion is much simpler than women's. It doesn't change as much. -Olga Kurylenko

I like clothes and fashion. It's a hobby for me and I really enjoy being part of it, so it's nice when people say: 'He can dress quite well.' -Richard Madden

Taste in comedy, like fashion, changes all the time. -Steve Carell

Looking at acting, in the movies or the theater, and the way I like to look at it, it's just an extension of childhood play… Kids play and imagine in a very intense fashion and they don't need any director telling them, 'You really have to believe in it.' They believe in it completely. -Viggo Mortensen

I think the music comes first, then comes the fashion, and thus, the lifestyle. I believe it starts with music, and then the person delivering it delivers the lifestyle, the fashion. Madonna is a great example of that. -Questlove

Overall when you work in fashion, you're always in a rush. You're always a little late, always in a hurry. Every single moment's important, so you never have enough time to do what you want to do. It's ridiculous. -Ines de La Fressange

Many people don't have relationships to their siblings in adulthood, or they have superficial ones. It's sort of unfashionable, particularly in America, to be close to your family. -Kiki Smith

Whether I'm trying to figure out what the U.S. military is doing in Latin America or Africa, Afghanistan or Qatar, the response is remarkably uniform – obstruction and obfuscation, hurdles and hindrances. In short, the good old-fashioned military runaround. -Nick Turse

I love fashion, beauty, glamour. It's the mark of civilisation. -David LaChapelle

We use fashion for status and to beautify and there's nothing wrong with that, but when it becomes completely unbalanced, then you're living a decadent life. And when that happens on a global scale, you're living in a decadent world. -David LaChapelle

In the fashion world, I was always an outsider, but I made people look good, so I had a career. -David LaChapelle

My view is that you have to take risks. Not everything is going to work out, but it's sort of the fun of fashion, right? -Julie Macklowe

A lot of people judge me because I like to, you know, look good, but I grew up in fashion. -Marie-Chantal Claire

I don't put any rules to my style; I think fashion is something that you should play with… even if you make a mistake, it's okay, it's only fashion. -Anja Rubik

Just like zillions of children, album covers educated and informed me, and certainly did I later transpose organically, rather than by intent, those principles both in fashion design and photography. -Hedi Slimane

With the rise of the Internet, fashion did become part of the global entertainment industry in the last ten years, and will follow the digital evolution of the music or film industry. -Hedi Slimane

I like the ritual, the liturgy of a well-crafted, emotional fashion show. I will never be jaded with this side of fashion. The catwalk is pure anthropology, something like an esoteric encrypted parade. It can totally be replaced but it will be missed. -Hedi Slimane

Music has shaped men's fashion, and transposed in a playful and witty manner its riding or military heritage. It is difficult to figure out who leads, but music and fashion are connected genetically. -Hedi Slimane

An athletic man, or whatever you want to call him, will only look good in a very classic suit, a pair of classic jeans, athletic clothes or simply naked. Forget fashion. This is not going to happen, unless you want to look like a Chippendales dancer in designer clothes. -Hedi Slimane

I only like luxury fashion. You have to decide where you stand. I like well-made, authentic clothes, well-crafted tailoring. I also like the dream and fantasy of luxury, the exception and rarity of it. I have no interest at all in fast retail. It is ambiguous. -Hedi Slimane

I don't like the collusion between high fashion design and high street. You have to know where you stand. I belong to luxury fashion. That's what I've always felt and embraced. I like the best quality, the best fabrics and the most creative field in fashion. I will stay consistent. I belong to this world. -Hedi Slimane

In the future, fast-fashion retailers might change their philosophy toward real efforts to create a world of their own. One can only hope. -Hedi Slimane

Men's fashion has a certain heaviness in the fabrics and construction. But also there is a heaviness in the mentality. -Hedi Slimane

Since I was a child, my whole life has revolved around music. It's often while listening to a song that ideas for my fashion collections formed. -Hedi Slimane

I've always been interested in fashion, the clothes, but I'm not that familiar with the fashion industry; for me it just comes out of quite an innocent sense of style. -Lenora Crichlow

I don't really follow fashion exactly, but I've always been very interested in the way that you present yourself as an expression of yourself, so that's my idea of fashion and style from a personal point of view. -Lenora Crichlow

I'm a Prada freak and I think they have great eyewear. Even though I don't need glasses, I use them as a fashion accessory. -Tony Vincent

As I got older I became a kind of sub cultural junkie, foraging around in music, street fashion and eventually art, politics and the freakier reaches of the Internet, hunting the next discovery, the next seam of underground gold. -Hari Kunzru

I love to experiment with fashion. A lot of my inspiration comes from my mom. She is fearless with fashion! I love colors and anything daring. -Neon Hitch

Although I was born in Idaho and now live in New York, I definitely identify with the European aesthetic. Paris is my mecca; it's where I discovered my flair for fashion. But I pay rent and work in New York, so that is my home – I love the culture clash of the city. -Dree Hemingway

Sure, jets are fast and economical, but, oh my, what fun we've lost and what leisure we've sacrificed in the race to efficiency. Somehow, stepping onto a plane and zooming across the United States in a matter of hours doesn't hold a candle to the dear, old-fashioned train ride. -Ginger Rogers

I love hats and winter is the perfect time for them. I love winter time fashion. -Rebecca Ferguson

I use a lot of old-fashioned expressions. -Susan Cain

We live in an age where there is a firehose of information, and there is no hierarchy of what is important and what is not. Where the truth is often fashioned through a variety of digital means. Are you your avatar? Who are you in social media? What face do you turn toward the world? How much does it have in common with who you actually are? -David Carr

I don't think it ever does any harm in any business to feel that there is someone there who cares about it. If you look at any business, fashion being the most obvious, the aura, or the reality of the designer, is part of what creates it. It's true in luxury goods stores and in good food stores. It leaves a palpable sense that someone cares. -Andre Balazs

I went to Brown to be a French professor, and I didn't know what I was doing except that I loved French. When I got to Paris and I could speak French, I know how much it helped me to establish relationships with Karl Lagerfeld, with the late Yves St. Laurent. French, it just helps you if you're in fashion. The French people started style. -Andre Leon Talley

I love people – it is not the fashion, it is the people in fashion I love. -Andre Leon Talley
