A little bird told me III

thank you for the wise comments left to the last post. 16 sex and the city episodes and three slices of cake later.. an inspiration collage and amusing quotes courtesy of those amusing fashionistas.

Marc Jacobs assures us that Victoria Beckham, like, totally gets irony; "I'm fascinated by pop culture, and people's fascination with her... As soon as I saw her after the Louis Vuitton show for spring/summer 2008, when she came backstage, I got the idea and went to see her at the Ritz. We spoke about the irony and perversity of it, and she totally got it."

Julia Restoin Roitfeld on her Mum; "She told me not to try too hard or follow the trends too much—because they change too fast."

"I have zero control. I couldn't pay my rent this summer because I had to have the Balenciaga gladiators in every color available." Um, and your landlord didn't just throw you out, Kate Lanphear?

Lesley Arfin dishes the perks of having Ms Sevigny as a mate; "I occasionally get her hand-me-downs. Once she gave me a pale pink Lil' Orphan Annie dress; another time I got a little boy's military jacket à la Michael Jackson."

Coco Rocha loves a bit of the airbrush; "People might look at a picture of me and say, "Wow, I wish I had her body", but they should realise that I often look at a picture of myself and say, "Wow, I wish I had my body."

I love the coco quote.. each day I love her more... she seems very nice and sincere!

And 16 episodes of SATC at one time?? The most episodes I've seen in the same evening were 6 episodes of Friends :D

WendyB said...

@ Coco's quote, I wish I had her airbrusher!

Considering that I've been on all-night anime binges, I think 16 SATC eps is quite reasonable- hope you're feeling better now :)
Love the quotes- Kate Lanphear must have a really chilled-out landlord. And as for Coco, she's really rather awesome- I mean, how can you not be, if you're that down-to-earth and an Irish dancer to boot?

haha all-night tv binges sound like fun right now. Even better? chloe sevigny hand-me-downs! Wow cue heart paliptations, total triple word score :S

Raych said...

I love Kate and Coco's quote.

Glad to know you're refreshed. I think most bloggers can relate to the busy times of today's world. It's not easy having a blog in the back of your mind. Blogs are like boys: you can't live with them, but without them you're complete lost.

both Marc and Victoria are overrated but Chloe is timeless.

Jessica Chu said...

i think i would LOVE to have any of chloe's hand me downs. she's gorgeous and one of my few style icons!!

hope you're having a great break/relaxing memorial day weekend.

Héloïse J. said...

Ella Gregory said...

I love the Coco quote, I think if I was a model I would want to be airbrushed
I get annoyed when people complain about it, becuase if you have a tool to make something look nicer I say use it!
Also I need cake!!!

Rebecca, A Clothes Horse said...

Good point on Miss Kate Lanphear! Even without rent or food I don't think I can afford one pair of Balenciaga gladiators...but maybe one day, a girl can dream!

vicky b couldn't "get" irony even if it was the new diet, honestly, marc shouldn't give her much credit haha

SATC & cake is always a good cureall
