"I've never really understood why women are so timid. For me, only someone with a powerful look — Diana Vreeland, say, or Minnie Mouse — is a  person worth emulating. Because — and here is a big secret — if you construct an eccentric look and make it your own, you will be forever insulated from the world of fashion, a place where, let's face it, you can never be lissome enough, your hair never curly (or straight) enough, your chest never full (or flat) enough. And here's an added bonus:  Truly wacky style doesn't date, so all those worries about wrinkles leave you blissfully unaffected." — Lynn Yaeger
