I live my life outside of the glitz and glamour of the red carpet events, and so you'll never see me there. I'm never at parties. -Werner Herzog

You can't beat the beehive for glam punkette attitude. -Rob Sheffield

Film buffs who don't live in Hollywood have a fantasy about what it's like to be a director. Movies and the people who make movies have such glamour associated with them. But the truth is, it's not like that. It's very different. It's hard work. -John Carpenter

I'm not glamorous, I don't have a look, I don't know anything about opera, I have no Italian, and I'm too old. -Tyne Daly

Sydney is rather like an arrogant lover. When it rains it can deny you its love and you can find it hard to relate to. It's not a place that's built to be rainy or cold. But when the sun comes out, it bats its eyelids, it's glamorous, beautiful, attractive, smart, and it's very hard to get away from its magnetic pull. -Baz Luhrmann

I do love getting dressed up, but sometimes it's glam and edgy mixed together. -Victoria Justice

I think there's a perception out there that people know me based on these glamorous photos they see of me in magazines, but I have about two hours of hair and makeup and then people to dress me, to make me look even better, in those pictures. -Victoria Justice

The really disturbing thing about Somalia is that in a country where there are few economic opportunities, pirates are perceived as glamorous and are held in awe by young boys who aspire to their lifestyle. -Wilbur Smith

Something I didn't even know was on my bucket list has been achieved. I have cooked Thanksgiving dinner with Martha Stewart. I vow to follow the gospel of her teachings and do my very best in the remarkably less glamorous kitchen of my own home… without the luxury of magically appearing prep bowls filled by a staff of sous chefs. -Jesse Tyler Ferguson

I can't stop watching 'Pan Am.' When I was growing up, my father worked as an engineer in Turkey, and we always flew Pan Am. The stewardesses were so glamorous! When they gave me a set of those golden wings, I felt very grown-up. Not only is the show's plot full of mystery and infidelity, they get the period details just right. -Gayle King

I advocate glamour. Every day. Every minute. -Dita Von Teese

I love glamour and artificial beauty. I love the idea of artifice and dressing up and makeup and hair. -Dita Von Teese

I don't work with a stylist, I don't work with a glam squad to get me together for the red carpet, I really enjoy the time it takes to do it myself, to choose my clothes and do my own makeup and my own hair. -Dita Von Teese

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 things that are old and glittery, that come with layers of glamour and past lives. -Candace Bushnell

I've rarely played glamorous roles. I don't mind looking plain on camera. -Joanne Froggatt

'The Taming Of The Shrew' is probably the first time I've worked in this country for about ten years, apart from theatre, and it's not for want of trying. It was so fantastic to work in London – it felt really glamorous. -Rufus Sewell

'White Collar' is a show about the unlikely pairing of an FBI agent and an ex-con solving smart, glamorous, interesting and provocative crimes in a sometimes very funny way. -Tim DeKay

Getting to travel around the world and go to glamorous locations is certainly not what I had as a kid. -Naomie Harris

I think that the audience wants to see women being put into real situations where they can relate to them, rather than seeing some glamorous woman in a 'Bond' film. -Anna Camp

'Free Agents' was an awesome experience. I never play the glam girl in anything, so that was a new experience. I would walk into one of my trailers and it would be like Spanx, a spray-tan gun, and chicken cutlets. I would have hair extensions. It was hilarious. Every day felt like I was turning into an awesome drag queen. -Kathryn Hahn

I think there's always interest in how the other half live – I see myself as a down-to-earth Essex mum who just happens to be living this very glamorous life in Beverly Hills. -Penny Lancaster

My songwriting is so influenced by orchestrated music, dramatic, super glam rock-y stuff. Two of my biggest influences in songwriting were Elton John and Freddie Mercury. -Brandi Carlile

I used to work at NASA in Virginia. It was nothing glamorous; I was just tasked with making code compile for obscure projects, and I wasn't very good at it. Now I spend most of my time drawing pictures and looking at funny things on the Internet, which in retrospect is largely what I did at my old job, too. -Randall Munroe

Making loans and fighting poverty are normally two of the least glamorous pursuits around, but put the two together and you have an economic innovation that has become not just popular but downright chic. The innovation – microfinance – involves making small loans to poor entrepreneurs, usually in developing countries. -James Surowiecki

The life of a bestselling novelist sounds like it ought to be spectacularly glamorous and fun, but in fact I spend most of my time incognito, and in fact were you to pass me in the street you would think I was just another dowdy suburban mom. -Jane Green

Progress can be unglamorous. -Jardine Libaire

There is nothing glamorous or romantic about war. It's mostly about random pointless death and misery. -Jon Krakauer

Punk was sort of an angry stance against things that had happened just before, against the pop of glam rock, against progressive rock. Music had become very staid and it was about the playing and people obsessed. Eric Clapton was God and we needed an enema within the art form, and punk did do that. -Gary Kemp

L.A. is a great place to write because you have a lot of space. I have a big office at home, I can leave the doors open. Flowers bloom all year. But it's unglamorous in all the right ways. -Rachel Kushner

I loved all those classic figures from the '30s and '40s… Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Humphrey Bogart, Rita Hayworth. They had such glamour and style. I loved the movies of those times too – so much attention paid to details, lights, clothing, the way the studios would develop talent. -Grace Jones

There's no glamour in Nirvana, no glamour at all, in fact. -Michael Azerrad

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

My life is not that glamorous. I actually live a pretty simple life, really. I just work. I don't have time to do all these glamorous things. I just do my thing, just work. -Olga Kurylenko

In comedy, it's not the glamorous, beautiful people that are great at comedy. They're either every man or every woman, they're either quite tall and lanky or shorter and fatter or have a big nose. They have something physically about them that makes them into a comic stereotype. -Rebel Wilson

There are so many glamorous actresses, but you know what? In the real world, nobody looks like that. -Rebel Wilson

What they do in America in all those sitcoms is hire glamorous girls and they're never that funny… that's because they've never had to develop a personality because they're hot. -Rebel Wilson

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

I have this idea that you can use glamour and still have it represent something that matters. -David LaChapelle

Whether in light touches or for a more glamorous look, I never go out without make-up – even if it's only a lick of mascara. And I always wear perfume, a light or more intense version. -Dree Hemingway

I like Marilyn Monroe; she was super glam, weren't she? -Rebecca Ferguson

Traveling to Europe and traveling in the U.S.A. was a much different experience. 'On the Road' exemplified everything glamorous that was happening on this side of the planet. The book puts off some kind of sweet melody – part hope for the world, part nostalgic. -Edward Ruscha

We don't make glamorous movies today. Everything now is very realistic, artistic – and depressing. When is the last time you you saw a wonderful musical or a fabulous fantasy? -Edith Head

I like having my picture taken and being a glamorous person. Sometimes when I find myself getting impatient, I just remember the times I cried my eyes out because nobody wanted to take my picture at the Trocadero. -Rita Hayworth

You go to something like the Golden Globes, and it's the most glamorous place you could ever be, but then you go home and you're still like, 'Urgh, this dress is too tight, I wanna take off these shoes and put on my pyjamas.' At the end of the night all the glamour goes away and you're just a human. -Zooey Deschanel

I love DJing, I do. I love everything that comes with it; it's fun and it's kind of glamorous. -Avicii

I feel I'm just meant to do stop-motion. Live-action is much more glamorous to some, but it's basically a whole army of people focused on one thing. -Henry Selick

When I think about old Hollywood and the glamour of those days, women like Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, and Audrey Hepburn were not dressing the way some girls dress today. There was a certain mystery about them, and I feel like that's gone in our industry. -Aly Michalka

As a child, the person I admired most in the world was Lana Turner! She seemed the epitome of glamour, and her glitzy surroundings so enviable, the opposite of my mother's extremely banal taste. -Lee Radziwill

More often than not, whenever gossip has been written about me, the gossip is more interesting than the reality. I know some public figures hate gossip, but personally I like it because it makes my life sound more glamorous and interesting than it really is. -Moby

A part of me wants to sort of try and sound cool and feed this myth that I'm some sort of glamorous lothario, but I was raised by women – my mother and her mother and my aunts – and as a result, most of my friends have always been women. -Moby

Thierry Mugler is about the power of glamour and walking straight into the future. He's been a god for successive generations in the fashion industry. He fused pop and high fashion, told a story in style and combined fantasy with reality. -Nicola Formichetti

I long for the old days of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, stars who had real glamour and mystique. We only knew so much about their lives; the rest was a mystery. -Pixie Lott

Everyone thinks the fashion business is so glamorous. It's completely the opposite. -Tadashi Shoji

Is there any possibility of giving international air travel, which we all need and use and hate, a touch of glamour, or even of reliable, soulless efficiency? I suspect future historians will puzzle over our failure. But by then, of course, we shall be in the age of mass space travel, with its fresh and unimaginable crop of horrors. -Paul Johnson

Celebrity has become a burden. There are more demands on your time. People think it is glamorous to fly places. But it is not – even if you travel business class and stay in wonderful hotels, you end 10,000 miles away from home. -Nouriel Roubini

In films I might look glamorous, but I've been in hair and make-up for two hours. -Kate Winslet

I think glamour all the time. I wake up in the morning and I'm already thinking glamour. -Donatella Versace

I'm very simple. I'm not for the flashes, I'm not for glitz and glamour, you know. -Kevin Garnett

I am strong-willed, which can be annoying sometimes. And from that I think people assume I have confidence and Hollywood glamour and all that stuff, when actually, in my personal life, sometimes I'm just a goofball. -Catherine Zeta-Jones

Being glamorous is about strength and confidence. It's black and white – dramatic. You have to be strong. -Catherine Zeta-Jones

One of the weird things about Hollywood is we're all imposters; we're all just glammed up. -James McAvoy

I love the Victoria's Secret Angels. They're sort of my gorgeous glamour heroes. -Jennifer Love Hewitt

There have been actresses who transitioned and nobody knew. But for me, with everybody knowing my history, it will be harder. I'm sure there are some great scripts calling for an ultra-glamorous woman. And I'm prepared to be ultra-glamorous. -Candis Cayne

I never wanted to work in fashion. At age 12 or 13, I wanted to design for showgirls – for the theater! And I was crazy for the Hollywood of the 1950s: Dietrich, Elizabeth Taylor, Jennifer Jones. They were my idea of glamour – and Sylvie Vartan, the French singer. -Christian Louboutin

A lot of the characters I end up playing have a certain degree of glamour or sexiness, but I like it when you can have some other element that makes it much more interesting. -Erin Cummings

Non-violence is not glamorous, and you don't see the effects right away. -Julia Bacha

When you're a kid, you read about this glamorous acting world, but actually it's really unglamorous. -Jodie Whittaker

While I believe that when you are in the glamour industry, you have to look your best, I also believe being skinny is not 'hot and happening.' -Deepika Padukone

I wanted a name I could shape the music towards. I was going to Miami quite a lot at the time, speaking a lot of Spanish with my friends from Cuba – 'Lana Del Rey' reminded us of the glamour of the seaside. It sounded gorgeous coming off the tip of the tongue. -Lana Del Rey

My parents and my family really tried to maintain as much of a normal environment as possible. When I went home, it wasn't Keshia Knight Pulliam the actress, the glitz, the glamour. It was Keshia the daughter. Oldest of four children, who washed the dishes and did everything she was supposed to do. -Keshia Knight Pulliam

I don't have time to write a mom blog, but I'm not against it. I think it's great when women talk about things. I'm all about female empowerment. There's a lot of lonely, lost moms out there. Moms need to be encouraged to tell the truth. There's a lot of glamour mommy stuff. It's OK to get real. -Kelly Cutrone

If you're 5' 6", just stay home. Don't pretend you're 5' 8" or 5' 9". If you want to be a beauty model, I guess that's fine, you can do glamour, but you're not going to do runway. If you're over 29 – 26, even – I would suggest you work regionally and not try to work nationally. -Kelly Cutrone

There are a bunch of different ways to look at the fashion industry. Is it shallow to work in fashion? Yes, it can be. But does fashion transform a woman who might feel like nothing and unimportant to glamorous and gorgeous? Yes, it does. Does it employ a huge sector of America? Yes, it does. -Kelly Cutrone

When I was growing up, I wanted to be my half-sister Lucy. She was 14 years older than me and was impossibly glamorous. I grew up in awe of her. -Emilia Fox

I've learned that being a superhero isn't all glitz and glamour. We think if we have a special power, our problem will go away. It's just a new set of problems. Being a superhero alienates you and separates you from humanity. As Spiderman famously said, 'With great power comes great responsibility.' -Josh Keaton

I love a bit of glamour – who doesn't? – but I probably wouldn't be able to pull it off. -Julia Sawalha

I always wanted so much glamour in my life, so I have always been obsessed with class, and from dating a few people who were from old money and a few from new money in my 20s, I just sort of became obsessed with this idea of clueless rich people. -Natasha Leggero

Heels I've always loved, but a wedge is perfect, in between glamorous and a common shoe. If going to the store, why wear flip-flops when you can wear wedges? -Maria Canals Barrera

A lot of people assume that once you're working in Hollywood you become some sort of glamour-diva, which could not be further from the truth about me. -Megyn Price

I'm always in favor of more glamour. I embarrass my children, I think. I am the lady in feathers in the car pool line. -Mia Sara

I worry about my face not having expression. I've never been known for glamour, so it's probably easier for me than it is for someone who has been known for her incredible beauty and glamour. I always wanted to be Geraldine Page, who was just a fabulous actress with just a nice, normal, expressive face. -Kathy Baker

My dad was in a Beatles cover band. My mom wore Candies and belly buttons. The people in our family were very glamorous. They wore pearls like Jackie O. -Azita Ghanizada

I'm not a glamour boy, and I never get the girl. I like to play old people, because there's something to them. Did you ever see anybody under 30 with any real character or expression in his face? -Walter Brennan

I think the perception of me can be, you know, confused. But that's only because people only see that side of me when I'm at work, in front of the camera. So they don't see Miranda at home; they don't see behind the scenes. They see the glamour of it all but they don't see Miranda standing barefoot in a dirty old house. -Miranda Kerr

The more time goes on, the closer I am to the ground. I've been exposed to so many issues and people living under different pressures. It's helped me realize that a lot of glamorous things that people prioritize really don't matter. -Queen Rania of Jordan

My dad was one of the reasons I got into rock and roll, because I was learning the ropes of his business, which was selling powertools, and I was looking for a way out from under his heel. I was like, 'Where's the fun? Where's the glamour?' -Billy Idol

I've not worn a dress since about 1985. It always amazes me how there is still a fascination for it in England. The rest of the world doesn't seem to care. I'm not sure whether they don't remember or whether they've just moved on from it. I was brought up in the glam era. -Martin Gore

I don't have to be glamorous all the time. -Kimberly Elise

See, I have to do my best because I am not as glamorous or as well-equipped like a Beyonce Knowles or Michael Jackson, where their band members are close to 100-150 people. They even have great equipment which is flown along with the artists. They have a budget of around $5 million pumped in to make their concerts a hit. -Sonu Nigam

I never wanted to be an actress, really. I sort of caught the bug fairly late. So many people are so intrigued with the glamour and celebrity of acting, and a lot of actors start acting when they are 9 or 10 years old – so young. I started when I was about 24. -Bitsie Tulloch

Bad behaviour makes men more glamorous. Women get destroyed, thrown out of society and locked up in institutions. -Marianne Faithfull

People think being famous is so glamorous, but half the time you're in a strange hotel room living out of a suitcase. -Ja Rule

My mum – and my granny and I – would close the curtains, turn on the TV and snuggle up and watch 'Come Dancing.' It was actually my granny who was the biggest fan; she loved the show, and she passed on her passion for it to me. I loved the dancing but also the frocks and the glamour. -Cherie Lunghi

There is an incompatibility between being glamorous, young and a woman and using my brain. The official version is there is no discrimination, and talent dominates, but that is not the case. -Maiwenn

Remember, acting is not a business of glamour. It is science, craft and an art. Read about acting; don't do it for the sake of fun. Actors such as Paresh Rawal and Naseeruddin Shah are great examples; they are surviving only because they have read well. -Boman Irani

It's glamorous when a movie is released, but then you feel disconnected from it. Someone asked if it wouldn't be more glamorous for me being on Broadway rather than Off Broadway, but I thought, 'What's the difference?' The Orpheum is a smaller house, that's all. And there are no mikes, so you just talk louder. -Brooke Adams

I don't understand women who try to be glamour queens. -Sandra Bullock

It's good to be fit and look good, especially when you are a part of the glamour industry. -Mona Singh

Badminton is not as glamorous as cricket. -Saina Nehwal

The glamour of being forbidden must not be underestimated. -Salman Rushdie

I was born in '71, so I remember bits of glam rock on 'Top of the Pops' toward the late '70s, but I had no idea what kind of world it was. I didn't like the music, either. -Ewan McGregor

I never represented glam. That's the thing, you'll never see me in the front row of a fashion show. I'm uninterested in it. I find it trivial and banal and boring. -Jamie Lee Curtis

When I was at the age when you were supposed to be glamorous if you were a movie star, I wasn't. -Jane Fonda

There's nothing glamorous about war at all. -Jesse Ventura

I wore makeup when I was at school, and I wore makeup when glam started. I started wearing it again when punk started. I've always been drawn to wearing it. It's partly ritualistic, partly theatrical and partly just because I think I look better with it on. -Robert Smith

I wasn't a glamour-puss, and there were more interesting roles for an actress like me in the theater and in live television. -Nancy Marchand

Vampires are pretty frightening. Knowing they can 'glamor' you is pretty weird. And you shake hands or hug them and they're cold. I wouldn't like that. -Todd Lowe

In 2007, my life changed forever. I signed on 'Tashan,' a full-on glamorous masala movie, with two of the hottest and fittest actors around: Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan. And me, rising out of the sea like a Bond girl, wearing nothing but a green bikini. I had nightmares of how my love handles would be on display for the whole world to see. -Kareena Kapoor Khan

Grunge was so self-consciously lowbrow and nonaspirational that it seemed, at first, impervious to the hype and glamour normally applied swiftly to any emerging trend. But sure enough, grunge anthems found their way onto the soundtracks of television commercials, and Dodge Neons were hawked by kids in flannel shirts saying, 'Whatever.' -Douglas Rushkoff

As an actress, the joy of being able to play the three sides of any woman, which are the glamour, the pragmatic and the one not to be messed with, is pretty glorious. -Victoria Smurfit

People's interest in glamour and clothes and nylon stockings and all those things were, when I was a little boy, the sort of world that I listened to. -Colm Toibin

There isn't any great mystery about me. What I do is glamorous and has an awful lot of white-hot attention placed on it. But the actual work requires the same discipline and passion as any job you love doing, be it as a very good pipe fitter or a highly creative artist. -Tom Hanks

I thought, 'If you're going to be on TV, and if you're going to be out and glamorous, the natural look can stay at home.' -Pamela Anderson

My clothes have always got a very strong dynamic rapport with the body – they are very body conscious, they help you to look glamorous, more hourglass, more woman. -Vivienne Westwood

So far, Vancouver is my favorite relocation city. It feels like home. Parts of it remind me of the east coast. It's very clean. The food is great. And the people are lovely. Not that I didn't love working in other glamorous locations like Downey, Detroit, Cleveland or Bulgaria… but, damn, it is fun to be Canadian. -Rachel Nichols

I look to women who epitomize old Hollywood glamour, like Rita Hayworth. -Jennifer Lopez

Sometimes I can be distracted by the glamour and the fabulousness. -Katy Perry

Those of you that think filming is all glamour, you're so wrong! Really, only the premieres are the glitzy bits. -Tom Felton

I grew up listening in awe to stories of their wartime adventures. My granny, Joan, was a journalist and wrote amazing letters to my grandpa when he was a prisoner of war, while my nana, Mary, was a Land Girl, then a Wren. They were so independent, resilient and glamorous. -Laura Carmichael

I want you to feel happy and enjoy the theatre of my life the way that I do. No matter what happens with my music and wherever I go – that heart of that glamorous girl in New York will never be gone. -Lady Gaga

I grew up in the Midwest, quite far from any ocean or any beach, a million miles. I think for kids who grew up where I did, the idea of California, surfing and beach life was so exotic and glamorous. -John Malkovich

I've been a little bit Las Vegas and casino-obsessed. So, I love some trashy glamour… and I think nothing's trashier or more glamorous than a bit of a sheer number! -Iggy Azalea

I'm not for the flashes; I'm not for glitz and glamour, you know. I just want to win, I want to be good at what I do, um, and look back upon these days of playing in the NBA. -Kevin Garnett

I got to L.A., and they said I had to lose weight, let my hair grow and buy some dresses. I was nailing auditions with my readings, but they wouldn't hire me because I wasn't putting on the glam. It just didn't occur to me. -Kim Cattrall

I live in New York. I have an amazing apartment over there; I have this amazing life over there that's full of glamour. I get treated like a queen over there – and that's one of the reasons I love coming home. It's very grounding. -Nicole Trunfio

My mother has always encouraged my creative side. She is a very eclectic, creative woman and looks incredibly glamorous, even when trudging about in wellies. Our family home is full of items from her travels and her amazing etchings and drawings. -Alice Temperley

Lingerie is my next love after clothing; I think it is what is worn underneath that really inspires a woman to feel beautiful in her clothes – that inner, secret glamour. -Alice Temperley

The classic hat image was during the Forties and Fifties, and Elizabeth Taylor was the epitome of that; she was the ultimate celebrity of excess and glamour, and she worked major sun hats. -Philip Treacy

Fashion pictures show people looking glamorous. Travel pictures show a place looking at its best, nothing to do with the reality. In the cookery pages, the food always looks amazing, right? Most of the pictures we consume are propaganda. -Martin Parr

As a sportsperson, the best thing is people recognising you and loving you for what you do. For me, glamour is 100 people in the hotel feeling happy to see you. -Virat Kohli

War… some people glamorise war and glorify war. It's not nice, from whatever point of view you come from. -Gerry Adams

I travel in a Ford Econoline van with a trailer. So it's not quite so glamorous. -Tift Merritt

Films do seem prestigious and glamorous, but when you create something, you want people to see it. TV still reaches so many more people; it still really appeals to me. -Chris Lilley

In the South America of the forties and fifties, everyone was into beauty and glamour and fashion. -Mario Testino

I couldn't define my style; that's impossible. I like comfort and elegance with a bit of glamour thrown in. If I like something, I'll wear it for years. -Jemima Khan

We all want to be a little glamorous, a little playful and a little mischievous at times. -Jason Wu

People shouldn't look at me and think life is one big piece of glamour. That's the marketing, the spin. Life is challenging. But I have courage, strength, and enough good health to see the positive. -Carmen Dell'Orefice

In the early '70s, coming out of the '60s, it was very hippy or it was very uniform, like The Beatles all wearing the same suit. Into the '70s, it became much more about a personal style. You had the glam period, which was a lot of fun, and then you went into punk. -John Varvatos

I romanticize. I live with the ghosts of Elvis and Frank Sinatra. It seems so glamorous. They were American men who don't exist anymore. But there are ugly things about them, too. -Brandon Flowers

I've always chased glamour. -Nicholas Haslam

As for radio and movies, I like the movies better, although the work is much harder. The cinema has microphone technique, staging, and glamour all wrapped up into one. -Rudy Vallee

Celebrities become excluded from everyday life, kind of in exile in an echelon that is deemed better, anyway: Life of celebrity, all the fame and glamor. -Jack Gleeson

We have never seen a sport as a business, and we have this great passion for football. QPR are not a trophy asset. If we had wanted a trophy asset, there were more glamorous clubs we could have bought. -Amit Bhatia

We're fit, we're healthy, we eat right, we work out. 'Plus size model' does not mean that we're not healthy. Plus size is not glamourising obesity: it's about empowering. The message behind the fashion is feeling confident in whatever you're wearing. -Hayley Hasselhoff

I was taken to my first fashion show – Nina Ricci haute couture – in Paris by the White Russian princess, down on her luck, whom I was boarding with in Paris in 1963. I was captivated by the glamour of the gilded salon, the elegant clothes, and the audience of grand ladies. -Suzy Menkes

The clothes that fire up my emotions are colorful and 'different' pieces. My eye still picks out gilded-cloque glamour from among Burberry's streamlined trench coats or a hand-printed coat from Dries Van Noten. -Suzy Menkes

'24' glamorizes torture. I don't think there's any other way of putting it. -Alex Gibney

When Reg died and we first looked into getting a new dog, I was adamant we should pick up a mongrel from an animal-rescue shelter. It's not only that they're usually healthier and have better temperaments, they also fit with my world view – I prefer a ballpoint to a fountain pen, a barber to a hair stylist, and camping over glamping. -Mark Barrowcliffe

I've always felt, with 'The Iliad,' a real frustration that it's read wrong. That it's turned into this public school poem, which I don't think it is. That glamorising of war, and white-limbed, flowing-haired Greek heroes – it's become a cliched, British empire part of our culture. -Alice Oswald

People accuse me of glamorizing mental illness. Looking back sometimes, that's true. But I don't feel guilty. -Andy Behrman

I like wearing beautiful clothes, but that does not translate into my work. People don't like to see me as a glam doll in my movies. My audience and the media love me with two different perceptions. It's a strange, crazy situation. -Sonam Kapoor

I have eclectic taste, and I love vintage style mixed with glamour and old world charm. -Sonam Kapoor

If I want to be the sexy Bipasha Basu, then I'll do a song here or a glam role there. But I want to be part of films that are watched, films that earn money and are new age, with author-backed roles. -Bipasha Basu

One thing which I know about this world of glamour is that it is better to have people talking about you than not being talked about at all. -Sonakshi Sinha

Yoga did not just help me with my body, I became fitter from within. It helped me to focus better. In the movies, we may look very glamourous and fit, but believe me, not many of us are actually fit from within. Yoga has helped me achieve that. -Shilpa Shetty

I have nothing against glamorous dressing. -Dries van Noten

I went from the glamour of working with Karl Lagerfeld and John Galliano to living on an isolated hilltop, with my husband gone most of the time. -Liberty Ross

I think if we were going to worry about teen pregnancy being glamorized, we should worry about shows like 'Teen Mom'. If people are going to want to have children at a young age because they see it on TV, I think that depends on the type of person you're dealing with. -Chelsea Kane

Just being able to get paid to do something you love is a wonderful thing. That said, a writer's daily routine, unless you're Dominick Dunne, isn't exactly glamorous. Much of it amounts to drudgery, staring at a computer screen all day in a room by yourself, juggling nouns and verbs to make a demanding editor happy. -Bryan Burrough

I gave up the idea of having a career when I was 24. Sounds glamorous, but I've been doing things since then, and part of those adventures was to make films because I realised I was actually quite good at it and I enjoyed it. -Shekhar Kapur

I think glamour is synonymous with me. -Malaika Arora Khan

I am the way I am. If you like me because I'm glamorous, so be it. If you like me, because I speak well or I have a brain and opinion, so be it. -Malaika Arora Khan

Yes, I love the glamour industry. I love the work that I've done so far. But it's not as if I have this biting ambition to be at the top. -Malaika Arora Khan

I was in the White House for a year and a half. Up to that point, all my jobs had been very unglamorous. -Desiree Rogers

I'm not a part of the glamour industry. I would like to focus on my game, and there are minimal chances of me getting into films. -Sania Mirza

Cooking is like love. You don't have to be particularly beautiful or very glamorous, or even very exciting to fall in love. You just have to be interested in it. It's the same thing with food. -Laurie Colwin

Cinema dominated the Fife coalfield towns. We lived in Lochgelly, but my mum was caught up in Hollywood. She was in love with the style and glamour. Sometimes she would come with me to the cinema in the afternoons, and she would say things like, 'I wouldn't mind a peck with Gregory.' -Kenneth Cranham

The Fashion Fund celebrates the real passion that underlies the fashion business, not the frothy world of glamour and celebrity that so often surrounds it. -Anna Wintour

'Vogue' is the best of everything that fashion can offer, and I think we point the way. We are, you know, a glamorous girlfriend. -Anna Wintour

That was my pride and joy – that I made it through all those years of minor hockey without losing any of my teeth; then, I ended up losing them in a car accident in New York when I was riding in a taxi. So, I end up losing my teeth, but not in the glamorous fashion I envisioned. -Tom Glavine

Hollywood style means classic glamour. My reference is the 1940s through the 1960s. -Kelly Wearstler

I've got a reputation for doing a certain type of film: lads' movies that glamorise violence. The more my reputation as a bad boy grows, the more my life moves away from that. -Nick Love

Personally, of course it's exasperating when people think you're just swanning around in Europe, going to the occasional fashion show and then being glamorous at a party. -Hamish Bowles

Our life may look glamorous, but we scream at the kids, and I have to tell Jamie to tidy up if we have guests coming over. -Louise Nurding

Whether you are right in the middle of a glamorous event or watching it from the sidelines, the red carpet Oscar events set the stage to showcase the latest designs and styles for those watching around the world. -Brad Goreski

Old Hollywood glamour just seems, well, old. -Brad Goreski

Someone I would love to do a beautiful and glamorous red carpet moment is Lady Gaga. -Brad Goreski

Real life is often sloppy, tragic, ugly, embarrassing, unglamorous, and not made for TV. -Jane Velez-Mitchell

Glamour invites us to live in a different world. It has to simultaneously be mysterious, a little bit distant – that's why, often in these glamour shots, the person is not looking at the audience, it's why sunglasses are glamorous – but also not so far above us that we can't identify with the person. -Virginia Postrel

Glamour is all about transcending this world and getting to an idealized, perfect place. And this is one reason that modes of transportation tend to be extremely glamorous. The less experience we have with them, the more glamorous they are. So you can do a glamorized picture of a car, but you can't do a glamorized picture of traffic. -Virginia Postrel

'The Matrix' is a movie that is all about glamour. I could do a whole talk on 'The Matrix' and glamour. It was criticized for glamorizing violence, because, look – sunglasses and those long coats, and, of course, they could walk up walls and do all these kinds of things that are impossible in the real world. -Virginia Postrel

I think glamour has a genuine appeal, has a genuine value. I'm not against glamour. But there's a kind of wonder in the stuff that gets edited away in the cords of life. -Virginia Postrel

Kidney disease is a low-profile, unglamorous problem, a disease that disproportionately strikes minorities and the poor. Its celebrity spokesman is blue-collar comedian George Lopez, who received a kidney from his wife. -Virginia Postrel

Barack Obama has brought glamour back to American politics – not the faux glamour-by-association of campaigning with movie stars or sailing with the Kennedys, but the real thing. The candidate himself is glamorous. Audiences project onto him the personal qualities and political positions they want in a president. -Virginia Postrel

Glamour is a beautiful illusion – the word 'glamour' originally meant a literal magic spell – that promises to transcend ordinary life and make the ideal real. It depends on a special combination of mystery and grace. Too much information breaks the spell. -Virginia Postrel

The glamour of air travel – its aspirational meaning in the public imagination – disappeared before its luxury did, dissipating as flying gradually became commonplace. -Virginia Postrel

Airline glamour never promised anything as mundane as elbow room, much less a flat bed, a massage, or an arugula salad. It promised a better world. Service and dress reflected the more formal era, but no one expected air travel to be comfortable. It was amazing just to have hot food above the clouds. -Virginia Postrel

The glamour of twentieth-century air travel helped to persuade once-fearful travelers to take to the skies and encouraged parochial Americans to go out and see the world. -Virginia Postrel

Cinema isn't just a good medium for translating graphic novels. It's specifically a good medium for superheroes. On a fundamental, emotional level, superheroes, whether in print or on film, serve the same function for their audience as Golden Age movie stars did for theirs: they create glamour. -Virginia Postrel

The elements that create glamour are not specific styles – bias-cut gowns or lacquered furniture – but more general qualities: grace, mystery, transcendence. To the right audience, Halle Berry is more glamorous commanding the elements as Storm in the X-Men movies than she is walking the red carpet in a designer gown. -Virginia Postrel

The whole point of movie glamour was – and is – escape. -Virginia Postrel

Although people often equate them, glamour is not the same as beauty, stylishness, luxury, celebrity, or sex appeal. It is not limited to fashion or film; nor is it intrinsically feminine. It is not a collection of aesthetic markers – a style, as fashion and design use the word. -Virginia Postrel

By binding image and desire, glamour gives us pleasure, even as it heightens our yearning. It leads us to feel that the life we dream of exists, and to desire it even more. -Virginia Postrel

European nations began World War I with a glamorous vision of war, only to be psychologically shattered by the realities of the trenches. The experience changed the way people referred to the glamour of battle; they treated it no longer as a positive quality but as a dangerous illusion. -Virginia Postrel

From the days of biplanes and silk scarves, the aviator has been the archetype of masculine glamour. Aviators have personified national ideals, from French elan to Soviet party discipline. They've inspired lust and admiration. They've turned sunglasses and short, utilitarian leather jackets into fashion statements. -Virginia Postrel

Manned spaceflight has lost its glamour – understandably so, because it hardly seems inspiring, 40 years after Apollo, for astronauts merely to circle the Earth in the space shuttle and the International Space Station. -Martin Rees

You can't get more glamorous than you are on 'Dancing with the Stars.' -Kendra Wilkinson

I loved the glamour and excitement of the games and, in particular, knowing the names of each and every one of the referees – that's because my mom, a former basketball player, would yell at them from our front-row seats for making bad calls! -Hannah Storm

I like to look glamorous sometimes, but it's not the be all and end all. I can muck in as well. -Judi Shekoni

All the Warner actors were real actors. They started in theater and led very straightforward lives – you never saw entourages around. The MGM girls were the glamour girls, and they always had the makeup and hair people with them and all that. -Lauren Bacall

Personally, in real life, I'm a little more down-and-dirty than I am glamorous. -Shelley Hennig

Red carpets seem so glamorous, but you're really just standing there sweating and worrying your hair is going to fall. And in the end, people are only going to see one picture of you. You just smile for one second and then you walk over to the side and check your phone. It's pretty weird. -Morgan Saylor

I was born in the city's general hospital on November 15, 1930, and we lived at 31 Amherst Avenue in the western suburbs. It was a magical place. There were receptions at the French Club, race meetings at the Shanghai Racecourse, and various patriotic gatherings at the British Embassy on the Bund, the city's glamorous waterfront area. -J. G. Ballard

Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can't get a job, and if it weren't for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and never have health care. And that's the story that we're not seeing, and it's unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out of children wedlock. -Mike Huckabee

I like to be grounded by nature, go hiking… go to an isolated island that's not glamorous and touristy at all. -Cote de Pablo

In the beginning, I thought it would be really glamorous, working in fashion. But it's actually quite hard. You don't even know half the stuff that goes on backstage. -Jacquelyn Jablonski

I thought it was too 'glam rock' to practice. The problem is that now I'm a pretty bad guitar player. -Laurent Brancowitz

There's a balance in my life. There's reality, and there's the part that looks really glamorous, but we're all just people in the end. -Olivia Newton-John

I have white hair now, but a lot of it, and I'm still very glamorous, and so I won't disappoint, I hope! I'll still be wearing the tight leather trousers and high-heel boots, regardless of what age! -Kate O'Mara

I'm not a glamorous girl. I don't know how to do my hair. I'm very bad with makeup. -Troian Bellisario

As I got older, I had a bunch of friends that were various teen stars. I've always known people in the spotlight and people who just grew up in L.A. and had nothing to do with the industry. It's not a glamorous thing to me. It's just a different type of business. -Troian Bellisario

I grew up in Hollywood. My father always told me that this is a job. These events are filled with people you work with; it's not like glam-schmooze time. That's why I only like events that celebrate people I have a connection to; otherwise, it's someone else's night, and I don't need to show up in a dress to try and steal their attention. -Troian Bellisario

The life of an editor is not a glamorous one. You're a fixer; you make things better. -Courtney B. Vance

I got a degree in math, from not a good school in Texas, and then I went to work as a software engineer. Just not glamorous at all. -Shane Carruth

My mom was a medical photographer, but on the side, she did a before-and-after glam photography business in the house. She would do makeup and hair – and I was her assistant. -Tyra Banks

Celebrity these days is completely for sale; it's not remotely mysterious. But there's something that remains glamorous and mysterious about royalty. -Tina Brown

I never really think about what I have to do to stick to my image. I just follow what I like to do. Sometimes it's glamorous, sometimes it's not. -Isabella Rossellini

I don't go for glamour roles. -Paul O'Grady

I think New York is the center of fashion, even though L.A. has a lot of heritage and the glamour of Hollywood. -Nina Garcia

I love Northampton. As exciting and glamorous as New York can be, I'm always really relieved to get back there. -Kim Gordon

I never, ever saw myself as glam because I didn't wear makeup… my image is a plain leather jumpsuit, which is not glam at all. I've always seen myself as rock n' roll and not glam. -Suzi Quatro

One thing about costume design – and I think design in general – but especially costume design, is people have a misconception that it's very glamorous work. -Colleen Atwood

I was never a glamour puss whose career was really based on a look or an attitude. I've been basically playing the same parts I am at 55 that I was at 35. I get cast as strong women, and that can be a mother or a judge or anything. -Jane Kaczmarek

I think very few people do find a relationship where, every moment of every day, everything they do comes together. That's why, in a nutshell, everyone loved Barbara in 'The Good Life.' She was the perfect partner. It was a formula. She wasn't glamorous. She wasn't clever. But she was a good partner. That's too easy, too perfect. -Felicity Kendal

I don't think men are that attracted by glamour. I think women are attracted by glamour. I think men are attracted by a sense of friendship. -Joanna Lumley

I was socially awkward for many years. I stuttered, stammered, talked rubbish. I never take up invites to parties, and I've been invited to very glamorous things, but I never go. -Alison Moyet

My family was very conservative, and I had a traditional upbringing. I was not brought up to be a sex symbol, nor is it in my nature to be one. The fact that I became one is probably the loveliest, most glamorous and fortunate misunderstanding. -Raquel Welch

My camping days are over, but I might consider glamping. -Christine Feehan

My music touches on things I am concerned with in my own life – the idea of a woman's role in society, sexuality, desire, monogamy, fantasy and glamour. That's what keeps me alive, and if I couldn't keep creating that, I'd fall into a bit of heap. -Jane Badler

We all know that people who've never been on a film set think it's way more glamorous than the people who work on them. -Martin Freeman

I love masculine cuts with suits and chunky jewellery. My hair is so glam, it balances it out, and it's comfy! -Rita Ora

I love getting dressed up and glamorous for the red carpet. It makes me feel powerful and sexy! -Rita Ora

As a kid, I saw that Dad lost a lot of money in casinos, and I didn't understand that. I thought this must be a great business. At the same time, I saw when I was with him – and I was with him a lot of the time – that this was a really cool business, and it was fun and glamorous. -James Packer

My mother's favorite photograph was one of herself at twenty-four years old, unbearably beautiful, utterly glamorous, in a black-straw cartwheel hat, dark-red lipstick, and a smart black suit, her notepad on a cocktail table. I know nothing about that woman. -Amy Bloom

The biggest insult is that I've been called an exaggerator… I tell the truth as I know it. I don't glamorize the nightmare and horror that I witness; I just digest it and spew it back, with venom. -Lydia Lunch

I thought I was very pretty without hair. Naked, more honest somehow. No glamor, just bald old me. I seldom wore wigs or hats. But some people must have thought I was an exhibitionist or a religious fanatic. -Persis Khambatta

I think the life of an actor is glamorous to other people, but then the reality sets in: you don't know where you will be next year or how long you'll be there for. -Joel Edgerton

I think the life of an actor is very glamorous to other people – then, realities set in. -Joel Edgerton

I think Hefner himself wants to go down in history as a person of sophistication and glamour. But the last person I would want to go down in history as is Hugh Hefner. -Gloria Steinem

Both cheap value stocks and more glamorous growth stocks can work well in a portfolio – if done right. -Kenneth Fisher

Generally, variations in earnings aren't nearly as impactful on glamour growth stocks as are changes in image and, well, sexiness. I often think of glamour stocks as though they are attractive women dressing to the nines. -Kenneth Fisher

The Dolls were the forefathers of glam. You never knew if they were going to kiss you or punch you. More than likely, they'd do both. -Shawn Amos

Despite all the media coverage, glitz and glam of hedge funds, they have not done well for their investors. They have high – some say excessively high – fees; their short- and long-term performance has been poor. -Barry Ritholtz

The whole 'serious artist' thing is very damaging. The powers that be will steer you towards your own demise. One thing I've learned is that it's not very glamourous, and my problems are no different from anybody else's. -Dave Gahan

God's will for your life is God's will for today, and it doesn't get any more glamorous than that. -Gloria Gaither

I don't know a writer who doesn't feel some sense of glamour and magic and a complex, wistful sadness emanating from the expats of the twenties in France. Some of the sadness, of course, is that we weren't there. -Guy Gavriel Kay

I get invited to a lot more glamorous parties since I've been in 'Downton Abbey,' which has made me much more fashion conscious. -Lesley Nicol

I don't get much studio stuff. I'm usually on location, and I know that some people think that acting is so glamorous, but believe me, it's not! -Emilia Clarke

What you have to understand is that my thing is not glamour. I love stretch marks and C-section scars and all of that. I'm a grown man. You don't gotta put on no makeup with me. -Tracy Morgan

The public is eager for stories of True Cybercrime, and the media is happy to glamorize the subject. But when teenagers take the bait and live out our fantasies for us, we punish them for frightening us too much. -Charles Platt

I'm definitely sensitive to the idea of exploitation. You don't want to glamorize certain things. -Cary Fukunaga

I love the sound of '70s glam records. I love that snare sound. The recordings I like, it's all based on if the snare sounds good. The drums have to sound great. -King Tuff

Dressing up and doing photo shoots was a side of the industry I really didn't think I would like. But now I've got a glam squad; I love trying on new outfits and experimenting with different looks. -Ella Henderson

I try not to write songs in which men glamorize their own need for approval from women. That's kinda a bogus way to go out. But I try to do this quietly. I'm not about to go around telling people how they should or shouldn't think. My feminism is for me. -John Darnielle

I'd watch old movies with Judy Garland, Shirley Temple and Bette Davis and long to be part of that glamorous world. A lot of that glamour is gone now. In my own small way, I hope I'm bringing some of it back. But it would be great if I could inspire women to dress up. -Imelda May

Let me tell you, 'The Reader' was not glamorous for me in terms of the body-hair maintenance. -Kate Winslet

Sophia Loren is glamorous. -Kate Winslet

I've got no interest in football. My brother's a footballer, too, and I was dragged to the freezing pitch every week as a child. I don't see much glamour in it. -Abbey Clancy

I think modelling is a very difficult thing. It's glamorous and fun, but underneath it all, you know your flaws, and those are what you focus on. -Pattie Boyd

Lots of people, from what I can see, just want to get into the music business for the glamour of it. But there isn't any, really. It's so up and down this industry, but if you really love it, nothing can stop you. -Eliza Doolittle

I remember someone saying to my mom that it must be so glamorous to have a child acting in movies. They had no idea how hard it was for her. -Douglas Booth

Inherently, I'm not a huge extrovert, so I actually find interviews and all the glamour to be a bit challenging sometimes. -Theo James

It didn't get any more glamorous than Havana, Cuba, in the 1950s. I used to go there when I was a waiter on a cruise ship. -Sirio Maccioni

I've been one of the image-makers who created this concept of perfection. I've done a thousand magazine covers where I'm celebrating Hollywood, glamorous people. Which is all good. It's all entertainment. -Platon

I think people perceive me completely differently than how I perceive myself. I see myself as a sweet, cosy, motherly type. We all want people to be more glamorous and daring and adventurous than they actually are. -Jade Jagger

A Texas girl who grew up in terrible poverty, I ended up leading a pretty glamorous life. -Alana Stewart

We only see the glamour side of stars but not how they've achieved it. -Anupam Kher

When people talk about being a writer, the first words that come to mind are glamour and artistic parties like Charles Dickens used to mix cocktails for. -Sarah Rees Brennan

Everyone's like, 'Oh, you must live in L.A., the glamorous life,' and I really don't. I'm in a small house, in Pittsburgh, in the snow. -Maddie Ziegler

'Mad Men' is nothing more than the fulfillment of every possible stereotype of the early 1960s bundled up nicely to convince consumers that the sort of morally repugnant behavior exhibited by its characters – with one-night-stands and excessive consumption of Cutty Sark and Lucky Strikes – is glamorous and 'vintage.' -George Lois

It seemed to me that you make magic real by making it a little prosaic, a little difficult and disappointing – never quite as glamorous as the other characters imagine. -Susanna Clarke

I am expected to be glamorous and untouchable. Like success would make me spoiled and entitled. However, I am just a normal dog-owning, horse-riding, meat-eating Oklahoman. -Kristin Cast

As any small business owner knows, starting a business is not glamorous work. -Kevin McCarthy

Sometimes America gets tempted by the glitz and glamour. -Martin Henderson

It's not very glamorous. People certainly wouldn't think so if they saw me sitting in my woolly socks at the kitchen table. Many times I sit at the typewriter and think, 'Why am I doing this?' -Penny Jordan

My family went to Toronto to visit relatives when I was 13 or 14. It was the first time we had ever been abroad. This was the early Eighties, and I remember the impossible glamour of air travel – my mum spending days trying to decide what she was going to wear on the plane. -John Niven

When I was a child, I wanted to be a jockey. I love horses, but it's not practical to have one in London. I also wanted to be an accountant, which isn't glamorous at all, but my dad was one, and I quite liked maths. -Lydia Leonard

I'm used to promoting books, but a movie is a very different thing. You have to go to film festivals and wear fancy clothes and try and look glamorous and intelligent when you're just terrified and you want to go home! -Tatiana de Rosnay

I grew up with my parents in the kitchen discussing the audition my dad had that day or moaning about something or other in the industry, so it was unglamourised and normalised for me from a very young age. -Bel Powley

I had a very hard time accepting myself as a character actress because I wanted to be glamorous and a leading lady like everybody else. I looked in the mirror and thought I looked pretty good, but casting didn't ever see me that way. -Beth Grant

When we talk about my music, it's a cross between Tina Turner, Alanis Morrisette, and Diana Ross. It's the glamour and the showiness of Diana Ross; the ferociousness and pain of Tina Turner; and the vocals of Alanis. -Wynter Gordon

'90210' was looking at teenagers from a perspective that hadn't really been seen on television, though it had been seen in movies like some John Hughes films. I don't know if you want to say '90210' was real, but what the characters were going through was relatable – in a very glamorous environment. -Darren Star

The intense media coverage of today's campus shootings presents a double edged sword. On the one hand, it gives us a chance to think about and reflect on the causes; on the other hand, in a very small minority of unstable minds, the repeated telling of the stories can be interpreted as glamorous. -Matthew Pearl

For my eyes, my day-to-day just involves curling my lashes to open up my eyes and applying our mascara, The Quickie. If I'm getting my makeup done, I like to get individual lash extensions or a strip of false lashes, depending on how glam I want to get. -Kourtney Kardashian

I think Star City should have Unesco World Heritage status. It will need to be adapted a little bit and made more glamorous than it looks now, but it should definitely be protected for the future. -Valentina Tereshkova

It sounds cliche, but I'm mostly androgynous in what I wear. I'll wear a lot of tomboy clothes but still dress glam if I have a red carpet event. It's a bit of a mix, but mostly androgynous. -Ruby Rose

I think all girls secretly want to be actresses because acting seems so glamorous. But as a child, I was always the villager who had one line in the school play. I was shy and I had a bit of a lisp. -Hannah Ware

I was embarrassed about modeling. When you're at school and you're modeling, it sounds very glamorous, but I didn't want to do things that no one else was doing. I didn't want to be the odd one out. I wanted to be part of the gang. -Hannah Ware

Mum worked as a secretary for Orson Welles for what sounded like a very miserable year. Her brother was the actor Jeremy Brett, who became famous for playing Sherlock Holmes. He was an absolutely lovely man. Very exciting and glamorous, he'd always make me feel amazing and full of confidence, like I'd picked the right thing to do in life. -Martin Clunes

When it comes down to it, glam rock was all very amusing. At the time, it was funny, then a few years later it became sort of serious-looking and a bit foreboding. -David Bowie

Backpacks are obtrusive. They're great for school kids and mountaineers, but a woman is supposed to look enticing and glamorous at night. They obscure one of a woman's most erogenous zones, the nape of her neck. I suppose they're good if you want to keep men away. -Letitia Baldrige

I believe in glamour. I am in favor of a little vanity. I don't rely on just my genes. -Iman

Driven to design by what she refers to as the lack of glamour in the industry, Bar Or creates for the modern woman who is a fashion risk-taker, one who is confident and, perhaps, has a larger than life personality. -Aslaug Magnusdottir

When I go into 'You're the Worst,' I'm very glammed up, and my hair and makeup is va-va-voom. Now what I'm having fun with in 'Grease' is, honestly, I go to rehearsals with zero makeup. When I get pimples, I get excited about it, like 'Yay! It helps the character!' The frumpier and uglier and grosser, the better with Jan. -Kether Donohue

I kind of wanted to be a waitress in New York City. I thought it was fun and glamorous in its own way. Like in the movie 'Beaches,' when Bette Midler is banging on the radiator, and it's cold, and she's poor. I kind of thought that would be fun to be, like, a poor, struggling actor. -Kether Donohue

I've been in companies where they have galas. U.S. companies aren't government-funded, so they invite wealthier people to come to these events. It's a very glamorous art form. They send you off to talk to bankers, and they make you feel objectified in a way. -Sarah Hay

There was a glamorous Nick-and-Nora element to my parents. If you remove one from the other, you're left with neither. But parents are parents. -Christopher Buckley

Writing was something I always as a kid thought would be fabulous and glamorous to be a writer. -Ann Leckie

Jolie's exotic mixture of brains and glamour makes her the one reliable international star, and one of the few of either gender to make people in every country pay to see her. -Richard Corliss

On Mother's Day, I like to feel pampered. I like to feel celebrated. I like to feel honored. I like to feel glamorous. -Tia Mowry

If you believe what you are on the red carpet, then you would have to go see a doctor, and there are so many actors like that. You have to know very well this is a moment of glamour, and when I go back home, I don't have the airbrush, and I have dark circles because I don't have the make-up on. -Monica Bellucci

Just a touch of eyeliner and red lips is glamorous. -Monica Bellucci

My mother and my sisters – five girls – were crazy about glamour and Hollywood movies. I styled myself on Veronica Lake and Marlene Dietrich. -Jerry Hall

You don't want to wear any styles that are too young… I try to still dress glamorously, but not like my daughters. -Jerry Hall

I like to style myself, as my first job out of university was working at 'Vogue' magazine in NYC, and I grew up attending the collections with my mother, so I have a particular aesthetic, which is classic glamour with a twist. -Carly Steel

My mother was a medical records librarian and wonderful with us girls. She sewed a lot of our clothes – really glamorous, beautiful clothes – and I think that's part of why I was so successful when I went off to Paris; she'd made me all these wonderful clothes to take. -Jerry Hall

Most of my friends are not actors. Most people have an idea of what an actor's life is, and it's pure glamour and excitement: it's easy and free and everyone loves you. But with a certain level of fame, there's a real level of paranoia and depression that comes with what you do, that nobody talks about. -Cush Jumbo

Trying to look glamorous while singing is not easy. -Sondra Radvanovsky

I enjoy finding a low subject and bringing it up high. I think with strong technique, you can glamorize certain things. You can make the imagery sharper, rounder, and basically better looking. -Peter Saul

I always wanted to tell stories. Well, at least, I always came back to the notion of storytelling when the glitz and glamour of being a special effects designer or a fighter pilot or a DEA agent wore off. -Cullen Bunn

I'm pretty spoilt when it comes to having a glam team. -Stephanie Sigman

Martinis are glamorous but also so simple because they only have a few ingredients, and you can really taste the vodka. -Stephanie Sigman

I have a very active social life. It may look glamorous, and it is, but it also takes an enormous amount of time. -Ivana Trump

Los Angeles is a true postmodern city. Here, we celebrate with equal aplomb the high and the low. I am just as influenced by the punk rock attitude of local skate and surf cultures as I am by old-school glamour and stardust. -Liz Goldwyn

I have a big problem with people who glamorize dumbness and demonize education and intellect. And I'm giving a pretty good description of Sarah Palin right now. -Aaron Sorkin

I like for my home to reflect my fashion. I love adding earthy pieces to something very glamorous, and I love having things with a history or a story sitting alongside an uber-modern piece. -Karen Fairchild

A lot of people don't think I'm English. I've lived in France, and people do think I'm French, but I don't see myself as having a glamorous look. -Sophie Hunter

Beatrice loves her glamorous dresses and her hair being curly or big – like Mummy's – and I hate volume. I like my hair to be sort of flat. I like just throwing on a pair of jeans and generally being more understated. She is more 'Let's do the glamour.' We're chalk and cheese. -Princess Eugenie of York

Every designer needs a story. Mine is all about glamour because my family has been in the business of glamour for three generations. My grandfather Shamshuddin Khan started his embroidery and fabric-making business in the 1930s. -Naeem Khan

My favorite part of designing bridal is that I will be a part of the most important day in a woman's life. My work needs to make her feel sophisticated, glamorous, sexy, and comfortable. -Naeem Khan

The beauties of the game may be lost on some of us sometimes, but many children will read about football when they will read nothing else, not for realism or glamour but for romance. -Jan Mark

I've always had a glam squad to do my makeup because of Miss India and Miss World, so I never really learned much about doing it myself, unfortunately. I do try to pick up what I can, though! The most incredible product that has ever been discovered in makeup, according to me, is mascara. -Priyanka Chopra

While I tend to favor styles that are glamorous, old Hollywood by night and very sleek and tailored during the day, I'm mindful of the fact that I'm 27 years old and try not to make that feel dowdy or old. -Ivanka Trump

I like to help women to spend not a lot of money – to feel powerful, elegant, glamorous, to feel good about themselves. -Melania Trump

Science is not the glamour that's portrayed in films. It's a lot of drudgery work, along with the wonderfully exciting periods when you discover something. -Paul Greengard

Catchers just aren't glamorous. -Joe Garagiola

Listening to Brunello Cucinelli is like getting your own personal tutorial with a very glamorous, fatherly professor. He is charming and solicitous, speaking in an urgent, musical voice. Associates say he is both disciplined and happy, as well as extremely meticulous. When it comes to business, he's known as savvy and calculating. -Michael Paterniti

New York is still the most glamorous city I've ever been to, but it's starting to feel older. The sirens still wail; the paths in Central Park still pulsate with joggers. The Manhattan schist still trembles beneath your feet. But weirdly, it's starting to feel, dare I say it, a bit quaint. -Tom Hollander

L.A. is big, although Hollywood's not as glamorous as I thought; it's kind of grungy. -Ben Hardy

I've always tried to be very seductive. I want the paintings to draw you in. But I don't want to just glamour you. I want to make an image of the time we live in and reflect it back. -Marilyn Minter

I was so aware of the stage clothes versus the everyday-life clothes, and the extremeness of the stage clothes that my parents had designed. Even coming across my dad's old Beatles suits from Savile Row and the history attached to them – the masculinity and simplicity compared to the '70s glitz and glamour of Wings. -Stella McCartney

I think the fact that my parents weren't conventional – especially considering their position – had a big influence on the way that I conduct myself now in design and business. It had a huge impact on my wanting to do something a bit more than just designing a pretty dress and putting it on a runway and making it glamorous. -Stella McCartney

From an early age, I was very interested in all things fashion… and the change from tomboy to ultrafeminine glamour in old films. There was a Doris Day film I loved: 'Calamity Jane.' -Stella McCartney

I became to myself an imaginary figure of great excellence, daring and glamor. -Rudolph Valentino

What we learned was that the collective glamour of a specialty store could sell a lot of merchandise. -Stanley Marcus

Recently, my dad has been teaching me a lot – like how to read a script. It used to just be about hockey or baseball or sports of whatever. We don't have glitzy or glamour-y Hollywood-type talk, like, 'Isn't that person great?' It's more about the process of how it works. -Wyatt Russell

I am always drawn to things that feel different to what I would experience at home: things that offer a combination of unfamiliarity and a sort of bleak glamour. I think the outback has that. -Louis Theroux

Leaving all the glamour and air-kissing aside, at the end of the day, fashion is about operations and getting things done. The best way to be successful, therefore, is to learn from the people who do it best. -Imran Amed

I still miss my first car. Not a glamorous ride, but I must've put 60,000 miles in road trips on that thing. -Marcus Sakey

I turn down a lot of movies because sometimes they glamorize violence or the darker side of sex or criminality. -David Oyelowo

I never wanted to just glamorize the playa lifestyle and not touch on the down side. I wanted everyone who's in a desperate situation to know that, if they wanna choose that kinda lifestyle, they gotta be aware of everything that comes with it! It's not just about the cars, the ladies and the money. -Jay-Z

You can look glamorous even if you're a housewife, any job you have. -Francois Nars

All of the trials and tribulations from personal to the artist. It shows that I'm human. People see the glamorous stuff, but they don't see the background. -Missy Elliott

It's fine to get paid and get a big verdict, but to go out and represent people, sometimes in unglamorous ways, is really what lawyering is all about. -Janet Reno

Most people think glamor is happiness. -Peter Falk

I've always loved makeup. I'm very, very girly. I used to sit and watch my mum get ready. My mum is very glamorous, and I remember sitting on her bed and watching her apply her makeup, get dressed, and do her hair. -Victoria Beckham

My mum was very glamorous, an incredible seamstress. She made up those Vogue, Givenchy and Yves St. Laurent patterns they used to sell. It was church couture, darling! Because my dad was a pastor, she could get away with more than other women. Her skirts were that bit tighter. -Grace Jones

The one thing that I cannot live without when I'm traveling is a small container of tea tree oil. It's not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it's my little cure-all. It's inexpensive, it's small enough to carry on, and I bring it with me all the time. -Meghan Markle

T. E. Lawrence was far more than a glamorous, swashbuckling, heroic figure in flowing robes mounted on a camel, leading the Arab tribes against the Turks in World War One. -Michael Korda

My mom had beautiful clothes. My mom is elegant; my mom is glamorous. But my mom is also really real, and I grew up with a mother who had babies crawling on her head and spitting up on her when she was wearing gorgeous, expensive things, and it was never an issue. -Tracee Ellis Ross

Red carpet is a little bit scary. It's not about expression. It's about taking a pretty picture in a really weird, awkward way, with so many people watching. It's a glamorous part of the job, but it requires its own kind of courage. -Tracee Ellis Ross

I know that a large part of my fan base is gay. They've shown me love from the start. I mean in this industry, everyone from my glam people to my dancers are gay. You can't be homophobic in this line of work – I'm a pop star! -Rihanna

My site is about women who want to look good and stay active: women who don't want to suddenly become 'just mums.' But it's not true that it is only about the glamorous side. Last time I was on a plane with Romy, she was sick all over me, and I wrote a tip about travelling with a change of outfit. -Julia Restoin Roitfeld

L.A., for me, is a perfect microcosm of America – because it's so profligate, and so glamorous, and so anti-intellectual, finally. -Lydia Millet

I don't have a glamorous lifestyle. -Sonny Mehta

I wouldn't play glamour for glamour. -Toni Collette

Life isn't always really glamorous and fabulous. It's about encouraging people to go back to natural beauty. -Zoe Foster Blake

There are a lot of distractions when you're in creative industries like publishing or fashion or media, and it's a real blessing to have witnessed some of those up close at a young age. I think when you get past the glamour, that's when you get to the good stuff – the stuff that really feeds your soul and enriches you as a person. -Tavi Gevinson

Rap bores me, and all the glamour rock groups like Bon Jovi just amuse me. They obviously have a place, but they all sound like they use the same guitar player to me. -George Harrison

There are a lot of movies about misfits that are quite cool, that kind of glamorize it on some level. I think there are fewer films, certainly with a lady at the center, about the agony of what it's like to feel like you're not accepted, and you're different, and somehow you're weird. -Rebecca Hall

Growing up, I remember watching TV, and I didn't see a lot of people who looked like me, especially someone who passed as a glamorous model on a mainstream TV show. -Hannah Simone

In terms of my looks in 'Brothers,' it's definitely not a glamourised look. It is very realistic. -Jacqueline Fernandez

I wouldn't say it's effortless for me to be glamorous. -Jacqueline Fernandez

Actresses are usually either the love interest or the glam quotient in a movie, but I play a strong character in 'Dishoom' who is at par with the guys, thanks to director Rohit Dhawan and his out-of-the-box thinking. -Jacqueline Fernandez

I think what happens is, people do just want to see you as a glamour doll that's put up on screen, but I guess it's how you see yourself. -Jacqueline Fernandez

My dad's a worker, an electrician, a bog standard job. Nothing glamorous like a footballer, but yet he still provided me with what I needed. -Ashley Thomas

I like to wear jewellery, even though I like my look to be minimalist. When I go out for events, I like to have at least one statement piece. It always adds glamour. -Nargis Fakhri

I don't consider myself as a glamour diva. If you get to know me, you will see that I am so dorky and weird. -Nargis Fakhri

My problems seemed so glamorous to other people, and everyone just thought I was so lucky. But then, I was lucky because my family was really there for me – San Francisco was a real refuge. -Winona Ryder

'Cloud 9' is an action/romantic comedy that focuses on the competitive world of snowboarding. We have glamorised it to so that all the players are on the cover of magazines, have all the interviews, and be on the television: so it is very high stakes. -Dove Cameron

A lot of new girls are arriving every day – let them do the glamour roles! I am done with ultra glam outfits and five song routines – hereafter, I want to do meatier roles, now that I've acted with all the biggies. -Samantha Akkineni

I think Bollywood and cricket go hand in hand. Glamour attracts glamour. Cricket has become a very glamorous game now. -Mohammad Azharuddin

I think cinema is so visually driven now, and people are so taken in by the glamour, gloss and all things good looking that we don't appreciate the craft as much as we used to in the bygone era. -Tiger Shroff

In the mornings, I use a good moisturiser and a colouring lip balm. In the evenings, though, I like to go a little glam. -Kriti Sanon

Being a trial lawyer sounds like glamorous work, but most of your time is spent pushing paper and arguing. -Megyn Kelly

Earlier, I thought it would be better for an actress to marry a businessman or a person from other profession, as it offers more stability. But then I realised that if I marry someone who doesn't belong to the same industry , he wouldn't understand my erratic schedules and also the norms of the glamour industry. -Divyanka Tripathi

Kids in the entertainment industry are at a risk of developing depression, as they see glamour at an early age. -Divyanka Tripathi

It's wrong to say that there is no performance in a glamorous role. Even a glam role takes in a lot of effort. There is a fine line between being glamorous and being vulgar; you have to feel comfortable in what you wear. -Rakul Preet Singh

When I was younger, I didn't want to come to WWE because I didn't fit into the mold. I couldn't identify myself with the term 'diva.' The divas brand was meant to put a spotlight on the women, but the term, to me, felt more glamorous than me. -Becky Lynch

I watched 'Eurovision.' And I actually like the show. I like wind machines. I like the whole glimmer-glamour thing. That's 'Eurovision.' We love to hate it. -Pilou Asbaek

My number one tip for all people, not just drag queens, is false eyelashes, which make every look go from daytime to glamazon! -RuPaul

I think it's a different experience for plus-size women in film and television to get clothes for events. It's just not as welcoming for us to get cool clothes that are, like, equal in glamour, in style, to what, I am going to say, 'small size' co-stars get to wear. -Aidy Bryant

I don't do glamorous things. -Rupert Friend

I would say there is probably a little bit of me in each character. But Purrscilla is a lot like me because she is very into glam and glitz and jewelry and everything very girly. And some of the jewelry in the illustration is even my own jewelry. But I'm not a cat fan – that's the only thing! I'm a dog person. -Lisa Frank

It's just that I've always been a tomboy, so being thrown into the hot nerd category and the glam thing has been very interesting for me to swallow. -Yvonne Strahovski

I dress well. I travel; I seem to be relatively glamorous for a film guy – which, to me, is like being the fastest midget in the circus. -Elvis Mitchell

I had some glamour models messaging me on Twitter and saying they think I'm hot, but I'm being careful. -James Arthur

It's important to show that there's different ways of doing things. Some people like to be glamorous, and that's perfectly fine, and that's amazing. If I were that style, then I would do that. I'd wear heels every day, and I'd strut around in a dress, but that's not me. -Alessia Cara

A profession which is seen as intellectually glamorous is often the most misunderstood when it comes to the commerce involved. -Ravi Subramanian

Most MBA graduates are hungry for intellectual glamour. -Ravi Subramanian

Friendship formed in the glamour industry comes with mutual benefits, which is nice, but it is not the real deal. -Mohit Chauhan

TV requires a lot more patience. No one's ever like, 'I gotta get up at 5 A.M. and write my stand-up!' It's an easy life. With 'Silicon Valley,' it's long hours and very unglamorous. -Kumail Nanjiani

In the early part of the '70s, we had glam rock, but we also had reggae and ska happening at the same time. I just took all those influences I had as a kid and threw them together, and somehow it works. -Boy George

I'm an old bag for the most part on 'Game Of Thrones', so it's so lovely to be glamorous – as glamorous as you can be at my age! -Diana Rigg

Of course the job has a lot of glamour. But it really is about being smarter than your average bear. Your mind is your best weapon. It's great when you're a good shot with an AK-47, but it's about being clever. -Valerie Plame

I wanted to be a part of telling women there is no segregation. There is no need to ever not feel beautiful or glamorous. There should be nothing that gets in your way. -Jameela Jamil

I thought it would be more of a challenge than it was to cater for every size, but as you're aware of a woman's curves – they're kind of like a race track – you can create something glamorous and beautiful. -Jameela Jamil

I'm obsessed with the power of music and image together. There's also something about music videos that are incredibly glamorous – there's a fetishistic aesthetic to them that you don't really see in movies in the same way. -Max Minghella

We don't have glamour models in Canada at all. -Katherine Ryan

What was so interesting about the glam era was that it was about bisexuality and breaking down the boundaries between gays and straights, breaking down the boundaries between masculinity and femininity with this androgyny thing. -Todd Haynes

The idea is to choose good roles and good movies. I don't want to act simply to remain in the industry, nor am I here to do glamour roles. -Keerthy Suresh

I'm a big believer in playing truth and not doing things for effect. It's not about whether you look pretty or glamorous. It's about whether people connect. That's important to me in any work I do. For me, the key is always trying to find the connection between the audience and the character I'm playing. -Aneurin Barnard

Art can do the opposite of glamourise the unattainable: it can show us anew the genuine merit of life as we're forced to lead it. It is advertising for the things we really need. -Alain de Botton

My aunt made stuff; my mom was creative, so I was surrounded by that. When I moved to England, it was '75, and everything was happening. My whole teenage life is England, glam rock and David Bowie and Sex Pistols and Iggy Pop, all that stuff. -Maria Cornejo

I'm always caught up in the thrill of award season: The golden statues, the glamorous stars, and the fabulous gowns. -Ashlan Gorse Cousteau

I will admit that I purposely stress myself out. But I think I like stressing myself out. There's a glamour to, like, 'I've got to get to the airport!' I just like the caricature. -Fred Armisen

I chose 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' specifically 'cause I had just made 'The Bourne Identity' and made a film that glamorized being an action hero, and I wanted to make the exact opposite. I wanted to make a movie that glamorized maintaining a marriage, and that made the action hero part seem easy and made the marriage part seem hard. -Doug Liman

Because of my own insecurities about the way I look, I do sometimes sabotage the looks of my characters by making them as homely as possible. I've never done a glamour part. I'd like to some day, though I don't know if I could pull it off. -Frances McDormand

There is something about Dior that reminds me of New York City Ballet. They both have a classic, glamorous basis but are trying to evolve the arts in new and innovative ways. -Justin Peck

I'm not a very glamorous person. I like to just sit alone in a room and read a book or meditate. -Yuval Noah Harari

It's about having that nice balance. I think that's the answer to today's modern girl who is on the run. She's throwing on something before she goes out, but I still believe in the glitz and the glamour of everything and making that come to life. -Emilia Wickstead

When I'm in public doing the glamorous-wife-of-rock-star persona, I don't want to disappoint, but when I act, I really like to leave all that behind. -Trudie Styler

I think there's a whole group of kids out there that don't relate to the glitz and glamour of hanging out in clubs and partying all the time. So I think some people are just more real than that, and I think our fans are those kind of kids that need something to relate to, and I think we're the band to do it. -Zacky Vengeance

I perform a role as per the requirements of the script. When it comes to work, I don't have any personal choice with regards to glam or de-glam. As an actor, I enjoy doing everything. -Sriti Jha

I entered this glam world by luck. I wanted to join dancing classes since I was a child, but my parents never gave me the permission to do so, as no one in our family had ever chosen this path. Fortunately, I got my first break in a reality show easily due to my dance skills, so that way I have been lucky. -Amruta Khanvilkar

I'm not running after glamorous roles, honestly. I'm a performer and want to perform instead of standing like a mannequin wearing a lot of makeup. -Nia Sharma

Just as I have broken the monopoly of film music as being synonymous with popular music in our country, I want to prove that cricket is not the only glamorous sport. -Yo Yo Honey Singh

There's no glamour in stupid mistakes. -David Bryan

Maybe actors are more passionate about cinema than actresses. Many heroines today seem unable to look beyond glamour. -Radha Ravi

I can't dance like Hrithik Roshan. I don't have the necessary glamour like some of the other actors do. They are able to sell themselves on that aspect. I do roles and films which are very realistic. So, in those films, if you don't get into the skin of it, they won't look convincing. -R. Madhavan

Whenever I go to any particular event, people are shocked that I'm a fighter. To be a fighter, I have to look a certain way, and to be an actress, I have to look a certain way. I have to change that; I've joined acting to do meaningful cinema and to show that there is much more than glamour that actresses can offer. -Ritika Singh

I've never wanted to be an actress. I came into the industry to be a filmmaker, but let us say fate had other plans for me. I don't want to be the next glamour queen. -Nithya Menen

I will not accept a role just because a big hero stars in it. I am not here to merely dance, run around trees, and be a glam doll. -Nithya Menen

I understand now that my soul is my power, not perfection or my ego. I continue to teach this to my children, despite their glamorous careers. If we can maintain our core values, the exteriors take second place and become a gift, a source of gratitude. -Yolanda Hadid

By starting a wrestling league, I hope to provide for wrestling the kind of visible and glamorous platform that the IPL has given to cricket. -Sangram Singh

If cricket can be so glamorous and lucrative, I don't see why wrestling should lag behind. -Sangram Singh

Music videos are not as glamorous as they seem. They are very tiring. -Jade Thirlwall

Yes, there is an image people have of me, that I did only sweet boy roles. With 'Ek Villain,' I got the opportunity to break out from this image. It is a way of answering my critics, to tell them I am here to perform and not just for glamour. -Sidharth Malhotra

I feel glamour has a legit place on the ramp and in the fashion world. In films, glamour has to service the story. -Swara Bhaskar

I think playing the glamour card is a disastrous error as a literary writer. -Jennifer Egan

My mother was very glamorous. She was very beautiful, and she had a lot of friends; she was fun and loved to drink. -Ellen Burstyn

When I read the script for '90210,' I thought, 'Boy, this is very superficial,' and it was. I mean, the pilot was all about the glitz and the glamour of Beverly Hills, the obnoxious kids, and the fish-out-of-water story of Brenda and Brandon Walsh. I couldn't discern from that first script that the show would become very issue-oriented. -Ian Ziering

I just try to do the best job I can with what I'm given. My main focus is the work and not the glamour. -Ian Ziering

Whatever you go into, you have to go in there to be the best. There's no formulas. It's all about passion and honesty and hard work. It might look glamorous, but it takes a lot of hard work. The blessing with the arts is that you can do it forever. -Hugh Masekela

The life of an editor may seem all glam all the time, but there's nothing like schlepping through the city during a torrential downpour to put things in perspective. -Elaine Welteroth

Not gonna lie – having a personal glam squad is pretty amazing. -Elaine Welteroth

If I wear a suit, as I generally do in the business world, it's supposed to mean I'm retreating from competition with the bunnies. If I wear a very glamorous romantic dress, as I'm very likely to do if I'm going out in the evening, then I'm supposed to be competing with the bunnies. -Christie Hefner

I don't think of the crown as this glamorous thing. It's this murderous, bejeweled thing, the crown. -Peter Morgan

Films are about lies. They're about making things look glamorous. -Sid Vicious

Here are the ingredients of a tragedy: untreated mental illness, a society where life is cheap and crime is glamorized, and a ready supply of firearms. -Blase J. Cupich

I wanted to be an air hostess because I thought it was the most glamorous thing – and I'd never been on a plane. -Georgina Campbell

The glamorous side is SUVs, but frankly, the tractor side is where we are number one in the world. -Anand Mahindra

Stage outfits are loud, outspoken, glamorous, fancy, and very different from normal day-to-day clothing. Therefore, by its nature, it is experimental. -G-Dragon

There is nothing worse than bright lighting – it isn't flattering and makes the glamorous women want to leave. -Patrick Cox

Working at a fulfillment center is definitely not the most glamorous job. I know because, in the early days, that's what I did, day in and day out. I had a tape gun in my hand, and I taped boxes. -Chieh Huang

What sets Labs apart from other brands is the emphasis on the user experience within the products themselves by embracing the technologies that are changing the face of the beauty and the marketplace of the industry. Simply, the Lab is where unadulterated experimentation meets raw glamour: a rule-breaking playground for makeup enthusiasts. -Pat McGrath

'Mr. India' was a turning point. Before that, Hindi moviegoers saw me just as a glamour girl. After 'Mr. India,' they felt I could act. -Sridevi

I don't want to be a glamour doll. I want roles which provide me the scope to perform. -Sridevi

I've always had this thing for swimming pools – I think they're much sexier and far more glamorous than the beach, in a way. You dress differently when you're spending a day at an amazing pool than you would dress for the beach. -Michael Bastian

I believe in the power of great clothing. It can evoke confidence, beauty, and a sense of glamour. -Tina Knowles

The one time I shot a gun, the feelings I felt, I was guilty for feeling them. There is an exhilaration and a glamour, and I felt awful for feeling that. -Justin Tranter

I like to make glamorously informed songs for glamorously intelligent people. -Justin Tranter

I just didn't really relate to Kurt Cobain. There was nothing very glamorous about him. -Justin Tranter

The Wonderstar collection is a fantastic fusion of Hollywood glamour and Wonderbra's technical genius. -Jenny Packham

Most of our customers want something glamorous. They want to be looked at, but not for the wrong reasons. -Jenny Packham

I feel our brides are empowered women who know what they want and have a strong sense of their identity. Obviously, they love fashion and glamour. -Jenny Packham

Old Hollywood icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Vivien Leigh, and Bette Davis are so inspiring; their style is romantic and feminine and their glamour mesmerizing. I love the idea of channeling that spirit on your wedding day. -Jenny Packham

In America, I can just be glamorous, which is lovely. People are happy and accepting of exactly what it is I do. -Jenny Packham

I guess the point of that song 'Troublemaker, Doppelganger' is trying to navigate the worth of beauty and if it's hurtful or helpful to value beauty. If it's a curse or a blessing. Is that something really negative and morbid, like the hearse, or is it the limousine – a glamorous symbol of enjoying life? -Lucy Dacus

It seemed too glamorous to me to be an actress like in the movies. -Vicky Krieps

The Huxtables laughed and bonded and debated and lip-synced. They were glamorous and simple and extraordinarily human. And affluent. And educated. And so many different kinds of black. You'd think that all of that would make them the Howard University of African-American family life. But white people wanted to matriculate, too. -Wesley Morris

When I first became a journalist, people said, 'Oh, that must be interesting.' They saw it as slightly glamorous, slightly edgy. They wanted to know more. -Fiona Barton

I think that fashion, in general, is a world of super-heightened glamour, and when you talk about super-heightened glamour, the first thing that comes to mind is a drag queen. -Chris March

Because I'm a bald, dim-witted writer, people think I couldn't possibly be her husband, so they occasionally confuse me for someone more glamorous. At O'Hare airport, a man asked if he could take Rebecca's photo. When I reflexively stepped away, he said, 'No, no, no. I want your picture too, Andre Agassi.' -Steve Rushin

If you're an actor, you have to look spiffing. But as the director, you don't need to look so glamorous. -Phyllida Lloyd

Diana became a superstar when she became a part of the Royal Family because she brought youth and glamour and fun into a staid and dusty institution, and at times she eclipsed the Prince of Wales. It was one of the early problems within their marriage. -Penny Junor

My idea of a night out is actually a night in – in pajamas, with a good book or playing 'Mario Kart.' It's not that glamorous. -Ronan Farrow

I find if my character is more glamorous, I become more conscious of what I look like. -Jodie Comer

People love music, but they also love the lifestyle and glam that comes along with it. -Poo Bear

Looking back at my first job, even when I was asked to do something seemingly menial, unglamorous, or very difficult, I always went all-in. In my most trying moments with managers I liked the least, I did not give up, complain, or slack off. -Clara Shih

You're not always going to look super glamorous in the morning when you wake up. Everything's not perfect. -Emma Kenney

My father, Anthony, was a textile agent who sold fabric in the West End and was away a lot. He was very glamorous. When he first met my mum, he swept her off into this big, social world. -Lisa Jewell

Years ago, I worked at a fashion magazine. I was the lowest man on the totem pole, one of the only men on that particular pole: a little brother with a dozen older sisters whose grace and glamour I so admired. -Rumaan Alam

I had another version of 'We Dance' that was kind of glam-rock. It was a little 'Taking Care of Business' mixed with Simon and Garfunkel. But on the album, I did it in a down-and-out way, like the Frogs or David Bowie or something – a little torch song thing. -Stephen Malkmus

I will say, as southern women, there is a southern way of life that inspires a lot of music. I can see why that's a common thread through music, but the best part about country is it's about real life. It's not about this glamorous Lamborghini, walking around with gold necklaces, all that stuff. -Maddie Marlow

The truth is I'm a very traditional woman, and Rod – despite everything people may think – is a very traditional man. It's true he absolutely loves glamour, and he hasn't got a conventional job, but performing aside, he's happiest at home with his kids around him or lounging in front of the fire watching a war documentary like 'D-Day Remembered.' -Penny Lancaster

I wash my own dishes; I do my own laundry. I'm not a glamorous person at all, not at all. -Elvis Duran

I thought I wanted to be a machinist. I thought that was the most glamorous job in the world. -Tan France

As a kid, we got a lot of American shows – usually a New York or L.A.-based show full of glitz and glamour – and I assumed that that was what life was like in the U.S. So, when I was 17, I decided to go to America. -Tan France

American film isn't just film and glamor and fame and the lives of people who are fortunate financially. Those aren't the only stories in this vast nation. That's my mandate. -Debra Granik

A bright lipstick is a quick way to glam up my look. -Christina Tosi

What I like about 'Lay the Favourite' is that it shows gambling as a profession, as this real grind-it-out job, with no glamour about it at all. -Joshua Jackson

Nothing about Tony Soprano's life was glamorous. He was never somebody I wanted to be. His life was terrible. -Terence Winter

In 2006, I appeared before a House subcommittee considering real estate reform. It was like visiting the capital for the 'Hunger Games' as an outsider in a glamorous and byzantine fairy tale: I couldn't believe how beautiful all the congressional aides were, and I never understood the system of bells and alarms warning legislators to vote. -Glenn Kelman

Working backstage as a teenager made me realise there's not much glamour in this profession – just lots of hard work. That's a good thing to learn early on. -Joseph Fiennes

Just like every young woman, I love getting all glam for the holidays. -LeToya Luckett

Even though I present myself at the height of glamour and beauty, part of my truth is being desperate and emotional and unafraid of being unattractive. -Sasha Velour

I'm a drag queen who is thoughtful and serious about drag in addition to being funny, ambitious, and glamourous. -Sasha Velour

My family were wheeler-dealer class. They were their own bosses and very glamorous. We lived in a beautiful, big townhouse in Arklow, in Ireland, that we couldn't afford to heat. My father had a business fitting bar furniture, and my mother is an antiques dealer. -Roisin Murphy

I'm a guy who doesn't really care about glamour and big markets; I like to be home all day. -Giannis Antetokounmpo

To see a trans body in this ideal space – on a cover, in an ad – these are spaces that have immense cultural power to dictate what is beautiful, what is glamorous, what is aspirational, what is sexy, what is clean. That can be very powerful and helpful in the de-stigmatization of trans bodies. -Hari Nef

There are two categories of actresses: performance-oriented ones and glamourous ones. -Nani

People have tried to glam me up over the years, but it just doesn't work. -Sue Perkins
