The last people with any ideas are young people.
Personally I'm not a feminist, as I can't stand puritans.
I'm not sure what I think about current fashion, though. A few years ago, I would have said it's really, really bad and you hardly ever see anybody looking good. There must be some very good designers in the world.

It is not possible for a man to be elegant without a touch of femininity.
Even though it was the 70s, we found old stocks of clothes that had never been worn from the 50s and took them apart. I started to teach myself how to make clothes from that kind of formula.

The sexiest people are thinkers. Nobody's interested in somebody who's just vain with a hole in their head, talking about the latest thing -- there is no latest thing. It's all rubbish.
Everybody looks like clones and the only people you notice are my age. I don't notice anybody unless they look great, and every now and again they do, and they are usually 70.

Prince Charles is definitely my hero; he uses his position to do only good in this world.
Real art has been... what's the word? Kidnapped? No, that's not it. But, OK, kidnapped by business.
Wear a towel instead of a coat, it's very chic. Or your husband's boxer shorts with a belt, or something from your grandmother. It's all about do-it-yourself at the moment.

When I was a little girl you used to learn to sew all the holes in things, darning socks, but nobody mends things anymore.
I eat only vegetables and fruit, and to me it's the most aspirational diet because it's so easy. It's quite simple, the cooking I do.

Fashion is very important. It is life-enhancing and, like everything that gives pleasure, it is worth doing well.

The thing that makes my clothes really different is that, number one, they are really great designs; they're not tacky; they are very professional; the design is made from lots of decisions.
When I first saw a picture of the crucifixion, I lost respect for my parents. I suddenly realised that this is what the adult world is like -- full of cruelty and hypocrisy.
I think feminists are unaware of the tremendous extent of the role of women in history.
I don't notice anybody unless they look great, and every now and again they do, and they are usually 70.

Shoes must have very high heels and platforms to put women's beauty on a pedestal.
I love designing at the moment, I'm so happy with my work.

It is extremely difficult to say how long the process actually took to finally achieve my fragrance, Boudoir, because there was a lot of time waiting around for other people.
