In honour of International Women’s Day, we dug up inspiring quotes by some of our favourite women in the pages FASHION. We bow down to their confidence, uniqueness and determination.
“I’m very against cosmetic surgery. Subjecting yourself to all that pain just to make yourself look a few years younger is madness…as Coco Chanel reportedly said, Nothing makes a women look so old as desperately trying hard to look young.” —Iris Apfel, May 2012
“When I go to Paris and watch TV, I’m like, ‘Ah, this is what people look like!” —Stephanie Seymour on the lack of women in American media who have aged naturally, May 2015
“Getting older opens you up to the unexpected. It makes you more spontaneous because you aren’t so affected by the world. You’ve built your own world up and have your own taste, so everyone else’s taste isn’t so imposing.” —Joni Mitchell, May 2015
“I stopped believing in time long ago. It’s such a manmade concept.” —Yoko Ono on aging, May 2012
“People are always there to look after your hair and your makeup; what’s not to like? What’s hard is going back to real life. You have to clean up the dog shit and pay attention to your grandchildren.” —Jane Fonda on attending the Cannes Film Festival, September 2013
“As a model, you have periods when you are definitely insecure, simply because you are constantly surrounded by people who don’t even realize that they’re criticizing the way you look. It’s very hard not to take that personally. Anyone who says they don’t is probably lying.” —Daria Werbowy, May 2011
“I’m not afraid of walking down the street in something that people think is crazy. What I can’t stand is looking like everybody else.” —Mary-Kate Olsen, March 2009
“I don’t believe in the usual message that you have to be young, thin and blonde to make it or be considered beautiful. That is too limiting to me.” —Isabella Rossellini, Summer 2014
“I come from a pop group and I’m married to a soccer player, so the odds of me making it in a completely different industry weren’t great.” —Victoria Beckham on facing a major career switch, Summer 2008
“I said, ‘If I throw up, just tell them it’s performance art.’” —Lady Gaga on how nervous she was on the Mugler runway, August 2011
