Never, ever confuse what happens on a runway with fashion. A runway is spectacle. It’s only fashion when a woman puts it on. Being well dressed hasn’t much to do with having good clothes. It’s a question of good balance and good common sense.
— Oscar de la Renta, who passed away yesterday after a long battle with cancer. Quoted in Oscar de la Renta, Who Clothed Stars and Became One, Dies at 82 at the New York Times.
