“You can’t try to be somebody you’re not; that’s not style. If someone says, ‘Buy this, you’ll be stylish,’ you won’t be stylish because you won’t be you. You have to learn who you are first and that’s painful… Now when I walk down Fifth Avenue in the summertime I just want to throw up. It seems that the fatter and uglier people are, the fewer clothes they wear. The shorts and flip-flops and tight jeans on butts that go from here to Poughkeepsie. I always say they should put people in jail for wearing clothes like that. Especially stretch jeans over size 10 — they should be outlawed. Ten years ago people were starting to look like slobs in New York, now it’s an epidemic.”

– Sassy old lady and style guru Iris Apfel doesn’t mince words. True story: Lindsay Lohan once asked Apfel to be her style guru, and she turned La Lohan down. “I can’t tell people how to have style. No amount of money can buy you style. It’s just instinctive.” [Telegraph]
