Veteran stylist Lori Goldstein, of W, Italian Vogue, and QVC, says real fashion folks aren't aspiring celebrities or reality-TV stars: "The people that I have always been drawn to are the worker bees. Whether that’s Steven Meisel — whoever it is — nobody I know wants to be a celebrity. They’re attracted to the work itself. Karl Lagerfeld once said to me, 'We have class. Working class!' Here's a man that we all revere, bow down to, and love. What we do is not the fluff — it’s not going out to parties, it’s not to be seen." [Fashionista]
