Don't dress to kill, dress to survive.

I can hardly eat meat because it has to look like something what it was not when it was alive.

I don't want to look sloppy, because then I feel sloppy.

I don't eat bubble gum, but I like the smell.

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

No, I never thought I would like cats.

I had nearly finished school because I was making effort not that bad on that. But there was a law in Germany after the war. You could not make your final examination before 18, so lots of people who were late because of the way had to do it first.

I like today and perhaps a little future still, but the past is really something I'm not interested in. So, as far as I'm concerned, I like only the past of things and people I don't know. When I know, I don't care because I knew how it was.

White always looks modern, whatever that word means.

Because I stopped dieting already six months ago, and I think it's important to bring out a book like this and you are there a year later and say look, I'm still like this.

I never had to learn English, French and German because I was brought up as all three languages. I had a private French teacher before I even went to school. That helped a lot.

Don't overact the story of your name. Overact the story of your work.

One day it will be over, and I don't care.

I think tattoos are horrible. It's like living in a Pucci dress full-time.

I like the language in Proust but not the context.

My job is to bring out in people what they wouldn't dare do themselves.

Start your diet during a period of optimism and happiness.

I sleep seven hours. If I go to bed at two, I wake up at nine. If I go to bed at midnight, I wake up at seven. I don't wake up before - the house can fall apart, but I sleep for seven hours.

Bling is over. Red carpet covered with rhinestones is out. I call it 'the new modesty.'

I hated to be treated as a child. I thought it was the worst situation.

My hair is not really white; it's kind of grayish, and I don't like the color. So I make it totally white with Klorane dry shampoo. That is the best thing to do because my hair is always clean.

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

Greece needs to work on a cleaner image. It's a big problem, as they have this reputation of being so corrupt.

No. I mean those people really did something for designers I don't think department stores can, could or should do still today. Today the world is different so you have to make it differently. There's TV. There's a lot of things.

I have no human feelings.

There was a moment when designers draped in ermine would be reading Proust, or pretending to.

I'm not very gifted for hairdos. I don't like gel and all those products.

I'm kind of fascist with myself, you know.

When I was a child I asked my mother what homosexuality was about and she said - and this was 100 years ago in Germany and she was very open-minded - 'It's like hair color. It's nothing. Some people are blond and some people have dark hair. It's not a subject.' This was a very healthy attitude.

I could speak three languages when I was six, and when I went to school, I only liked to read and sketch. At five, I could write and everything.

I'm German in my mind, but from a Germany that doesn't exist any more.

Stupidly it should not be. It should be also nice. One must get along with that. Is however not necessary.

In a meat-eating world, wearing leather for shoes and clothes and even handbags, the discussion of fur is childish.

I'm not an employee who goes to the office every morning at the same time. Then, vacations are needed.

I can no longer walk in the street. That's over.

I spent my childhood in the country and started reading even before going to school. There was nothing else in my life but sketching and reading.

Beauty is also submitted to the taste of time, so a beautiful woman from the Belle Epoch is not exactly the perfect beauty of today, so beauty is something that changes with time.

I don't take showers at night, because I take a bath when I wake up. Then I go to bed on the most beautiful Egyptian-cotton antique sheets in the world.

There are less than 1 per cent of anorexic girls, but there more than 30 per cent of girls in France - I don't know about England - that are much, much overweight. And it is much more dangerous and very bad for the health.

I can do whatever I want.

The first thing I do when I get up, I have breakfast.

Bears are very nice, as long as you are nice to them.

I do my job like I breathe.

Fortunately there is more wealth in the world than there was at the time of the global economic crisis of 1929 - Chinese, Indian, Arab and Russian.

People can drink with their eyes; I can eat with my nose.

You have to like the present; if not your life becomes secondhand, if you think it was better before. Or that it will be better in the future.

Vanity is the healthiest thing in life.

What I enjoy most is doing something I've never done before.

I have now exactly the same weight I had when I was 18, 20.
