Ralph Lauren, On Having a Certain "Je Ne Sais Quoi"

There is a woman that represents my kind of clothes. She is not the obvious beauty, but a beauty that has a quality of charm and understatement. You look at her and say, ‘She’s beautiful. I love her hair. I like the way she stands.’ She takes something that could have been masculine and makes it exceptionally feminine. She’s not old-world, she’s not today’s world. Her elegance is not defined by time. She has an enduring glamour.

Olivier Zahm, On Women

Ninety percent of the attraction of women is style. Old or young, if she has a good sense of fashion, I am in love with her. If she has bad style and a beautiful body, I run away. I don’t give a shit about beautiful style on a man. Men should keep a distance from fashion to find their own uniform. People see me as a womanizer, but that’s not the case. It’s just hard for me to resist the charm of a woman. I love every aspect of women, even the negative aspects when they get scary or crazy or super-emotional–I think it’s beautiful.

The Soft-Boiled Egg

I love having a soft-boiled egg for breakfast. You get to enjoy the egg in its most simple and perfect form, and, because you have to watch the cooking time with utmost sensitivity, it always feels like some kind of a luxury. Here's a little video I made about soft-boiled eggs yesterday morning at Le Pain Quotidien, thanks to the iMovie app on my iPhone!
