Magister Dixit:

"I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and... I believe in miracles."

Requiescat in Pace Anna Piaggi

 “It doesn't have to be Dior with Anna. She's always worn 1920s shoes with Dolce trousers and a vintage Patou coat and a plastic belt, and a ski pole for a walking stick and crazy blue hair and a funny hat. She's about the possibility of what fashion can be. It's not about chic, or a grand gesture, as it was with Diana Vreeland. With Anna it's about fun and interest and frivolity. It's her crazy jumble of things. But it's actually not at all crazy and not at all a jumble. It's very disciplined."

- Stephen Jones
