  • Lately I've been so hungry for color.

  • I love, love leopard.

  • Dyed to match cashmere sweaters and skirts.

  • [Dartay] is my current favorite.

  • I like wearing men's clothes, but what makes it less masculine,

  • I wear like this wonderful brooch.

  • I like surrealism, I like eyeballs and lips.

  • This to me is a gorgeous piece. This is spectacular.

  • And the giant, you know, Joan Crawford shoulders, the Club Montana, Thierry Mugler.

  • Japanese kimono, it's actually a little girl's kimono.

  • I think it's fun to dress up. It's an exercise in creativity,

  • and it makes you feel better. Sometimes your in a funk and

  • you put something on and throw yourself around and 'bam'.

  • You get treated nicer if your well dressed. I don't want to go

  • around like a dreary old lady.

  • I don't dress for anybody else, I dress for myself. If somebody

  • doesn't like what I'm wearing, I don't give a shit.

  • Look, this is Marilyn Monroe. But I think what I'm seeing here

  • is Andy Warhol, I'm seeing anti-fashion fashion.

  • I have my own ideas what I like and what I think is chic.

  • I dress according to my mood.

  • You don't want to look crazy. The object is to look as chic as you can,

  • but you're average person in the street would never wear this.

  • Creating a picture, creating a piece of art within yourself,

  • and I call it creative dressing.

  • What would you call that style? I don't know what it is, it's just me.

  • Too many people are so afraid and they just want to do what everybody

  • else does and look like everybody else.

  • Women see me and they say, "I wanna dress a little more fun,

  • I want color in my life too." So I give them permission to

  • go ahead, do it. Go start playing.

  • Yeah you can break the rules once in a while. I'm not ready for

  • a convent or anything so I can wear leopard glasses.

  • Young women, you're going to be an old woman some day,

  • don't worry about it. Don't sweat it, don't worry about getting older.

  • Every era, it builds character.

Lately I've been so hungry for color.
