“I think it’s terrible to wear borrowed clothes. I don’t think it’s chic. A couple of years ago, Azzedine Alaïa loaned me a coat that I wore to New York. It was photographed a lot, and everyone wanted to buy it afterward. When I went to return it, Azzedine said, ‘No, you keep it. There’s nothing less chic than a woman who borrows clothes.'”

–Ex French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld in V magazine, on her distaste for borrowing clothing. Whatever. I don’t care whether it’s chic or not; it’s certainly much cheaper. []
