“Ever since I had the baby, there was at least four months I went without makeup or hair products. I loved it. You can kiss your baby and you can snuggle. I am less on the makeup since I had a baby for sure because it makes it hard to kiss.” — Kim Kardashian on her beauty regimen.

 

“Our consumer is less logo-oriented. They are [no longer] walking billboards.” — Jonathan Ramsden, chief operating officer, Abercrombie & Fitch.

 

“There is a lot of opportunity in outlets. We’ve had great initial results. In addition, it’s a great way to introduce new customers to the brand.” — David Kornberg, president of Express Inc. 

 

“This ‘wearable’ conversation is from tech people who want you to put things on your body, so first we have to design them in the same aesthetic as Gucci and Louis Vuitton and people who are making stuff we desire — then the tech should be invisible. So you need parallel paths. You need to make sure your stuff looks like something you desire to put on and not like something out of ‘Star Trek.’ Although I love ‘Star Trek.’” — Will.i.am.

 

“It’s Ryan Seacrest Collection.” — Jimmy Fallon joking on the red carpet at the Emmy Awards.

 

“I remember her telling me, ‘Karl, please make me look like a woman who sells wine.’ Funny to say that, no?” — Karl Lagerfeld recalling Baroness Philippine de Rothschild.

 

"I think that women find their strength and power in their sexuality, in their sensuality within, [through] getting older and being secure within that." — Charlize Theron. 

 

“I love what they do. They have an amazing talent — just look at the fabrics.” — Delphine Arnault on Proenza Schouler.

 

“Increasingly, we need to engage with shoppers and consumers around the country and the world as an aspirational lifestyle retail-oriented brand.” — Simon’s global creative director Chidi Achara.
