One is never over-dressed or underdressed with Little Black Dress.

I prefer to be in a video than to play with it.

My childhood was endless - from eight to 18 felt like hundreds of years.

I'm not a fortune-teller.

I don't look at my old work. I mean, they made nice books; the books were made without me, the one from last year and the one from this year. I - personally, I'm not interested in my own past. I'm only interested in today - perhaps tomorrow.

Everything I say is a joke. I am a joke myself.

Pfft, I hate Christmas Day. It's for children and families. Not for people like me.

In my day, there were no vet video games.

The brain is a muscle, and I'm a kind of body-builder.

Who buys French cars? Not me.

Mostly I stay at home from the morning until 5 P.M., and I only go out for fittings and shoots because I work at home. I like to be alone.

I make such big efforts to forget things and I can't tell the story of my life because, thank God, I'm still living it.

I don't do meetings.

I believe in sketching because there is something very sensitive in sketching, you know, in sketches that you don't have out of a computer that looks the same like everybody even if, later on, the dresses are OK, but I like to sketch, and I like to see trails made after my sketches that look the same. It is you know, what I like.

Why should I stop working? If I do, I'll die and it'll all be finished.

I've only wanted paper and beautiful colors. It was my dream, and it still is my dream. And books. They're all I need, and the rest I can do without.

I hardly went to school.

I'm totally myself.

My opinion can be completely different after a show.

Reinvent new combinations of what you already own. Improvise. Become more creative. Not because you have to, but because you want to. Evolution is the secret for the next step.

There's something boring about people who have to go to an office for a living.

No, I'm not a French designer either. I'm from nowhere. I'm a European, old European is all I am.

I never drink anything hot; I don't like hot drinks, very strange.

I'm not a marketing person. I don't ask myself questions. I go by instinct.

I wanted to become a cartoon artist, a portrait artist, and an illustrator. This was my first idea.

My mother did not like children.

Buy clothes the size you want to wear.

Oh yes, I love to do shoes. I'm not a fetishist but I love to do shoes.

No one wants to see curvy women.

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

No, and I never, ever eat in between the meals. I control it well enough and with no pills, and I sleep seven hours a night. I go to bed. I fall asleep, and I wake up seven hours later, and this is the most important.

I never played with anything like toys.

I admire people who destroy themselves.

Yes, and I can sit down on a white piece of paper and work because I don't believe too much into inspiration, only I'm waiting for inspiration, work and then inspiration may come. It's a little too easy to say that.

I worked out a lot before I was 20. I was hard underneath. I had just a little padding. I was quilted. Always Chanel.

The iPod completely changed the way people approach music.

Work is making a living out of being bored.

I don't care if people I admire criticize me because their opinion is valuable to me.

I was always told as a child by my mother that you always have to be impeccable, even when you go to bed.

In France there are, I think, less than one per cent of people who are too skinny.

If there's something dangerous, sauces are dangerous for the body.

I never look at my watch when I'm sketching!

If you're in this business and you are scared, then you better do something else.

I eat next to nothing.

I'm all self-taught. I never had a teacher. Even for English, and French, and German, I hardly went to school.

There will be gay couples; it will exist. It is not very nice that people who are married - who divorce in three seconds - don't want protection for the others. The legal system should protect everyone, not just the few people who think they are above everybody else because they are married.

I drink Diet Coke from the minute I get up to the minute I go to bed.

I have moved to a smaller house in Paris, and I don't fancy having so much staff now.

I hate the past - especially my own past.
