“Adornment, what a science! Beauty, what a weapon! Modesty, what elegance!”

“Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; life shapes the face you have at thirty; but at fifty, you get the face you deserve.”

“If you were born without wings, do nothing to prevent them from growing.”

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”

“Elegance is refusal.”

“You live but once; you might as well be amusing.”

“Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.”

“Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is no luxury.”

“The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.”

“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.”

“You can be gorgeous at thirty, charming at forty, and irresistible for the rest of your life.”

“A woman should wear perfume wherever she wants to be kissed.”
