As if we needed more reasons to love our September cover star (we didn’t), we’ve found some of the best quotes from VB over the years. Speaking on everything from her fashion decisions to what motivates her to work as hard as she does, her dry sense of humour and unabashed honesty are truly admirable. Here are some of our favourite pearls of wisdom from the fashion designer herself.
On her work ethic:
?If I’m going to do something, I’m going to do it 110 per cent or there’s no point in doing it at all, especially if the work takes me away from time with my husband and children.?
?I don’t believe anyone who says they don’t care what anyone says about them. Of course they bloody well do.?
On dreaming big:
?If you can get your head around your dream it means your dream isn’t big enough.?
On her parenting philosophy:
?I want my kids to have a good work ethic. I believe you can achieve anything if you work hard enough to get it.?
On her shoe choices:
?I can’t concentrate in flats.?
On her transition from pop star to fashion game changer:
?I used to feel famous, but now I feel successful.?
On her voice:
?I was never going to give Mariah Carey any competition.?
On her signature pout:
?I’m smiling on the inside. I feel I have a responsibility to the fashion community.?
?You have to remember that when you are a performer you become a celebrity, but you are not saving lives. It’s not that important.?
On being a role model:
?I appreciate that young girls look up to me. And I take that very seriously.?
