Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence,
But of those who have already taken possession of their future.
A woman has the age she deserves. Elegance does not consist in putting on a new dress. A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. Fashion fades, only style remains the same. A women who doesn't wear perfume has no future. As long as you know men are like children, you know everything! Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only.
Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.
Don't spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door. Guilt is perhaps the most painful companion of death. Elegance is refusal. Great loves too must be endured. Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions. Fashion is made to become unfashionable. I don't know why women want any of the things men have
When one of the things that women have is men.
I never wanted to weigh more heavily on a man than a bird. How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone. Jump out the window if you are the object of passion.

Everything I did not like would have an opposite, which I would like.
My friends, there are no friends. In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different. Since everything is in our heads, we had better not lose them. Look for the woman in the dress. If there is no woman, there is no dress. Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty. Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury. Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity. There are people who have money and people who are rich. Success is often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable. There is no time for cut-and-dried monotony.
There is time for work. And time for love. That leaves no other time!
The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud. There have been several Duchesses of Westminster but there is only one Chanel! Those who create are rare; those who cannot are numerous. Therefore, the latter are stronger.
