My Fashion Icon
"Jackie O was classically elegant yet simple. She was chic without trying to be chic. I, on the other hand, have no style at all. If it's clean, I put it on."
"Jennifer Aniston always looks sensational and streamlined and put together. Things never seem fussy or uncomfortable."
"Diana Ross was never safe but always sexy and glamorous and had her own individual style. She started a lot of different trends, but whatever she wore complemented her body."
"Julie Christie was always in the latest, sexiest styles. It's the kind of Hollywood sophistication that takes hours to achieve, but she made it look easy."
"Coco Chanel took risks while maintaining elegance. All the designs with her name on them were classic and ladylike. She really knew how to work a set of pearls."
"Sharon Stone put glamor back in Hollywood. Everybody was doing grunge, then she appeared at the Oscars, and ever since it's been elegant."
"Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack were suave. They wore the finest suits, had great hats and remembered details like cuff links or a silk handkerchief."
"I've always liked the way Brigitte Bardot looked. Everything was so simple, but it was very sexy."
"My icons are Marilyn Monroe, Ava Gardner, Sophia Loren and Rita Hayworth. I love old-Hollywood glamor. I love the classiness. These women got dressed up, and I love that."
"Anna Wintour [editor of Vogue] is an icon to me because she's so cool. Everything she says is cool. If it's not in Vogue, it's not cool."
"David Beckham's got a lot of style. He's a handsome guy and can throw together a good ensemble. And he's always doing something just for kicks, like wearing nail polish."
"Miss Piggy is always a fashionable girl. She wears miniskirts and gives you cleavage."
"Diahann Carroll always combined dignity and class with a little hint of sexuality."
"Antonio Banderas looks comfortable in his clothes. I came from Venezuela, where all we wore were tie-dyed jeans and T-shirts."
"Johnny Cash, who always wears black. He's supercool."
