“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.’”

“I don’t think of myself as a powerful person. You know, what does it mean? It means you get a better seat in a restaurant or tickets to a screening or whatever it may be. But it is a wonderful opportunity to be able to help others, and for that I’m extremely grateful.”

“[The papparazi] follow every move I make until I’m back inside the house. You do start to understand the behind-the-gate mentality, the getting in the car in your driveway. But I can’t imagine living in seclusion. We flirted with [moving out of New York]. We went outside the city and troubled all these realtors and stood in these homes and fantasized, and then I kept picturing nine o’clock at night and… The beautiful thing about New York is, you have to expose yourself to other people the minute you step outside the door. There is no choice. And I love that.”
