In the March 2009 issue of Harper's Bazaar was a Q+A with Karl Lagerfeld (a client was clearing out her mag stash so I took a few to catch up on my reading). Although he's a fashion God, I doubted the relevance of his advice for the average woman. Boy was I surprised! His no nonsense, practical (yes, practical!) advice he gave was totally refreshing. Karl telling someone to go deeper and not take fashion as 'end-all-be-all'?! Love it!!
HB: Bright red lipstick, major chandelier earrings: I am constantly searching for fashion pick-me-ups. What do you think are the newest mood boosters?
KL: I am not sure the new 'mood boosters' are in fashion! This is perhaps the moment to think things over. Is your life that flat that you need a new lift all the time? Some people would call you superficial, but as your doctor, I say: Try to look a little deeper into yourself. Fashion is important, but it's not the only permanent booster. Change your hairdo. Reinvent your look. Start at the beginning. Look at yourself honestly, and don't ask me to tell you what you want to hear. I am not here only to please you. My job is also to tell you that it's time for a little change. I hope you don't mind.
