Thoughts from a Wise Woman
março 20, 2009
Influence, sem dúvida, se tornou um dos meus livros preferidos, não me canso de reler. O coffee-table book das gêmeas Olsen não só reune entrevistas com as mais variadas — e influentes, é verdade — pessoas do mundo da moda e artes, como também pensamentos que dá pra levar pro dia-a-dia. (aboliram o hífen, ainda é assim que se escreve?)
Eu disse que iria postar passagens e coisas legais por aqui — pena que esqueci o cabo da câmera no Rio e não tenho scanner, senão postava grande parte do livro, rs — então aqui vão alguns trechos da conversa das twins com a modelo Lauren Hutton, na minha opinião uma das mais legais:
LH: Men are short-term hierarchical thinkers. Women are about feeding and warmth and safety, and it’s beautiful. (…) But men are fun, they have ideas, and they’re wild. They’re an exotic animal. I just love men. They have different brains from us. But be careful, because–
MKO: Because you have to know what to pull from them. And you have to know what you’re giving them.
MKO: It just occured to me that this interview isn’t going to be about fashion.
LH: No, there’s no such thing as fashion. Fashion is an idea to make you think that you’re not in it at all times. Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year by designers — and style is what you choose.
AO: “Thoughts from a Wise Woman” we should call your interview.
LH: That’s funny! The very first interview I ever did was with Eugenia Shepard from the New York Times. She was a wonderful, kind fashion editor, and she asked me what I wanted to be–I think I was 22 or 23 when I gave this interview–and she said, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” And I thought for a second; and then said, “I want to be a wise woman.”
