    I’m with you 13/14ths of the way on this one… I need to put the Wintour quote up on my bulletin board!

    But I can’t quite figure out how a Style.com shout-out from Ashley Olsen is going to get me inspired…?

      Hmm, probably because style.com has the largest database of runway photos available online? It’s just a guess… but it’s still a great source of information for bloggers to get to know about designer collections.

    I’m wholly confused with using the Ashley Olsen quote for inspiration? The rest I get, but, Ashley? Shrugs. Oh, well.
    I’ve added a quote by Grace Jones. “I’VE ALWAYS BEEN A REBEL. I NEVER DO THINGS THE WAY THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO BE DONE. EITHER I GO IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION OR I CREATE A NEW DIRECTION FOR MYSELF, REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE RULES ARE OR WHAT SOCIETY SAYS.”

    I prefer Coco’s “Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” quote :)
    But quite a nice collection of quotes here, I do have to agree that the Ashley Olson one is a bit random, not as inspiring as the others.

    The most inspiration for me comes from Wintour’s words! And as I said on my Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/moiminnie) – thanks for the YSL quote! Such a great reminder for all of those bloggers who think expensive stuff make them elegant and stylish!

    While it may be a stretch to call certain people here an “icon”, I still love these quotes!

  11. Margo says:

    These quotes gave me the boost that I needed today! I got really sentimental when I saw Alexander McQueen’s picture. I loved his aesthetic so much, he was an immaculate visionary. I’m definitely sharing the Yves Saint Laurent quote with my Instagram followers! Great read :-)

  12. Sam says:

    Most of these quotes are very well known, I like them very much nonetheless. Especially the Audrey Hepburn one! She has sad many inspiring things I think.
