WORDS FROM THE WISE
SILLY-SEASON COUNSEL FROM THE ICONS OF PARTY MYTHOLOGY
“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
