  • The best things I’ve ever done have come from dreams
  • I love change; I’m attached to nothing
  • When I took on Chanel, it was a sleeping beauty — not even a beautiful one; she snored
  • Hunters make a living having learnt nothing else than hunting, killing those beasts who would kill us if they could. In a meat-eating world, wearing leather for shoes and clothes and even handbags, the discussion of fur is childish
  • Why should I stop working? If I do, I’ll die and it’ll all be finished
  • Success nullifies; you have to do it again, and better
  • Russian men are the worst. If I would be a Russian woman, I would be a lesbian by now
  • It is my job to adopt to changes of today and not live in the past
  • What is interesting is now. If you think it was better before, then you might as well commit suicide immediately
  • Everything changes, except death. Billions have died before us, so it can’t be that bad. If you ask me, death and deep sleep are the same thing
  • In all my contracts it says, if you want me, send a private jet
  • What you need is a face. If you have a face you don’t need height or a voice. Models know this; that’s why the good ones don’t need to talk much
  • Nowadays you start to model because you’re young. Now the girls are sixteen, seventeen, fifteen, and Russian. They are like from another planet.
  • I hate all these tall women. They are all giants!
  • I don’t need meetings. I’m only interested in my own opinion anyway
  • I’m mad for books, it is a disease I won’t recover from
  • Career, what career? What does it mean – career? Everything I do is my passion. Everything is connected
  • I don’t turn pages. I tear them out. I make blank pages again. I am an unwritten book
