WORDS FROM THE WISE

SILLY-SEA­SON COUN­SEL FROM THE ICONS OF PARTY MYTHOL­OGY

VOGUE Australia - - VOGUE VIEWPOINT -

“Fash­ion is like a party. Getting dressed is pre­par­ing to play a role.” Yves Saint Lau­rent

“When a woman gets dressed up to go out at night, she wants to give 50 per cent away, and hold the rest back.” Alexan­der McQueen

“A party with­out cake is just a meet­ing.” Ju­lia Child

“I like large par­ties. They’re so in­ti­mate. At small par­ties there isn’t any pri­vacy.” Jor­dan Baker, The Great Gatsby

“The best time to leave a party is when the party’s just be­gin­ning. There’s no drink that kills ex­cept the drink that you didn’t want to take, as the say­ing goes, and there’s no hour that kills ex­cept the hour you stayed af­ter you wanted to go home.” Diana Vree­land

Diana Vree­land and Yves Saint Lau­rent in 1982.
