Paris is always a good idea.

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair.

I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and… I believe in miracles.

I dress for the image. Not for myself, not for the public, not for fashion, not for men.

Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.

A woman’s dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view.

I think the quality of sexiness comes from within. It is something that is in you or it isn’t and it really doesn’t have much to do with breasts or thighs or the pout of your lips.
