Mary-Kate Olsen, cover of Elle magazine

No tengo tiempo de traducirlo al español, así que espero que lo entiendan en ingles.

Es interesante el modo en el que Mk trata de evadir la pregunta acerca de la muerte de Heath Ledger. Simplemente dice que no quiere tocar el tema, secamente.


Mk On sibling rivalry: “We don’t agree all the time. The way we go about business or designing or making a decision is that we come at it from two completely different angles that at the end of the day, even when we don’t think we’re agreeing with each other, we are agreeing. We’re just getting there in different ways. Unless you’re a twin, you honestly can’t know how close twins can be.”

- On the controversy surrounding Heath Ledger’s death: “I’m not going to comment on that, I won’t give you a word about that in the nicest way possible. Let’s move on.”

- On celebrity: “It’s weird to be called a celebrity or talk about it. I don’t talk about being a celebrity in my business meetings. I don’t talk about it with my friends. It’s not a part of my life. It’s a media perception of who I am. It’s very weird. I mean, if I see a paparazzi shot of me walking that’s in a magazine or something at some event, it’s as if I see it from an outsider’s point of view. There’s like a character, almost, and then there’s me.

- Is she rich and famous: “No, But it’s nobody’s business if I am or I’m not. I mean, if you want to have a discussion about fame and what does it really mean to be famous these days, what’s celebrity anymore, what’s media? That’s different.

Yves Saint Laurent Dies at 71

Lamentablemente, el mítico Yves Saint Laurent falleció hoy domingo a los 71 años, en Paris (sufrió de una enfermedad durante muchos años).

He was “unquestionably the greatest designer” from the 1950s to 2000, Valerie Steele, director of The Museum at FIT (New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology) tells USA Today. “Just as Chanel brought modernism into women’s fashion, you could say Yves Saint Laurent brought fashion up to a kind of contemporary life.”
“Most designers are incredibly lucky if they can contribute one thing to fashion,” Steele continues. “But he was like Picasso: He contributed to so many significant movements. It’s impossible to imagine contemporary fashion without this man.”
