Notable Quotations On Fashion From The Experts

Style: it’s what everyone wants, and a decent amount of lucky people actually have. But who is the best teacher for understanding the delicate balance of fashion and style? An expert, of course. Instead of taking it from your best friend or a magazine article, why not pay attention to what some of the experts have to say about style? After all, those experts can talk the talk and walk the walk and they more than anyone else understand what it’s like to have everyone looking at you.

At the epicenter of a movement of clever artists, models, and filmmakers, Andy Warhol understood what it meant to create fashion and style. Never one to go underquoted, his words of wisdom continue to enhance the lives of aspiring fashionistas. One memorable quotation: “I love Los Angeles. I love Hollywood. They’re beautiful. Everybody’s plastic, but I love plastic. I want to be plastic.”

One of fashion’s heavyweights, Christian Dior is always creating a collection that has jaws dropping regardless the year or season. Famous quote: “Zest is the secret of all beauty. There is no beauty that is attractive without zest.”

Part model, part musician, part actress, Grace Jones was one of the seminal figures of the 1970s downtown New York scene. Her influence in the modeling world is still felt, and she was one of the few performers who did a truly decadent job of dressing herself: “Models are there to look like mannequins, not like real people. Art and illusion are supposed to be fantasy.”

You can’t really talk about fashion without talking about Madonna. Though she might be all grown up now, her 1980s attire launched a thousand teenage girls to run around the mall and copy her style. On making it: “I think the ultimate challenge is to have some kind of style and grace, even though you haven’t got money, or standing in society, or formal education. I had a very middle, lower-middle class sort of upbringing, but I identify with people who’ve had, at some point in their lives to struggle to survive. It adds another color to your character.”

Even though he’s currently rocking more grey hairs than ever before, incredible fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier is still called the enfant terrible of the fashion world. His rebellious attitude to fashion definitely has produced some gems over the years: “It’s always the badly dressed people who are the most interesting.”

Fashion designer Jeremy Scott is known for his hilarious and fabulous fashion shows in Paris. Since relocating to Los Angeles, he’s managed to grab the attention of major States-side celebrities. Famous quote: “I’ve never met someone that I thought, oh my god what the — is she doing with my clothes? It’s always cute kids and that’s the most flattering. It’s people I would like to know or would like to talk to, people who have similar interests too. That’s the whole thing about fashion: it’s not only about the clothes but also about the people.”

A man who knows what it’s like to turn a name into a brand, Ralph Lauren set the bar for accessible yet proper fashion and what it means to create a lifestyle instead of just a garment. Famous quote: “I’d like to believe that the women who wear my clothes are not dressing for other people, that they’re wearing what they like and what suits them. It’s not a status thing.
