French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld: "Designers have told me that their collections are so me, but I don’t always recognise it because if you ask me what my style is, I’m really not that sure. Really. It wasn’t until I started to work for Gucci in the Nineties that it started to become clear to me. And that’s because Tom Ford was pushing me to do the dark eye make-up, to wear high heels and to keep things very simple and lean.” [Times UK]
