• "It would be great to meet Kim Kardashian —  I’ve never met her and she’s been looking insane lately. She looks amazing. I went to this woman to see if I could get my hair done blonde, but she said it was impossible. I literally cried. All I want is Kim K. hair.” —  Hannah Bronfman

• “It is a big math puzzle and the math suggests that it is tilting in our favor.” — Bill Simon, chief executive officer and president of Wal-Mart U.S.

• “Does she have a Twitter? I want to follow her.” — Chloe Moretz on “girl crush” Amy Adams.


• “I’ve had a bad education in fashion,” he admitted. “I learned fashion on Style.com.” — Kanye West.

• “Marigay, who was very comfortable in this nice little shop in London, said, ‘I’m happy to come across the pond but’ — just like her friend Anna — ‘you’d better make sure you put aside at least $1 billion for me to do a little fixer-upper at the new business there.’” — Richard Baker,  chairman and chief executive officer of Hudson’s Bay Co.,  on luring Marigay McKee to Saks.
