I love good, catchy quotes. Especially about fashion or style.  I always write down the best ones in a special booklet.  Some quotes immediately make me think of my ‘models’. For example qCoco Chanel’s, which always makes me think of Joyce Carpati. One of the leading ladies in the documentary Advanced Style by Ari Seth Cohen. I met and photographed her in New York. Talking about elegance and simplicity…

‘True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul’ – Audrey Hepburn


‘You don’t have to be born beautiful to be wildly attractive’ ~ Diane Vreeland


‘Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself’ ~ Coco Chanel

‘Isn’t elegance forgetting what one is wearing?’ ~ Yves Saint Laurent


‘The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy ~ Yves Saint Laurent

‘True style is not only timeless but also ageless’ ~ Jana Rousakov


‘When you don’t dress like anyone else, you don’t have to think like anyone else’ ~ Iris Apfel

This quote from Iris Apfel seems entirely appropriate to Debra Rapoport. She is also one of the stars of the documentary Advanced Style. I happened to meet Debra in New York. I ran into her at my second day in this big city. Debra is a very creative woman and makes all her hats, clothing and jewelry herself.
