Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.

I would do terrible things for those earrings.

One of my all time favourite films is Factory Girl, about Andy Warhol's muse, Edie Sedgewick. Cue some gorgeous pictures of her, and some quotes from him.

"I think having land and not ruining it is the most beautiful art that anybody could ever want to own."

"Fantasy love is much better than reality love. Never doing it is very exciting. The most exciting attractions are between two opposites that never meet."

"It would be very glamorous to be reincarnated as a great big ring on Liz Taylor's finger."

"People need to be made more aware of the need to work at learning how to live because life is so quick and sometimes it goes away too quickly."

"They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself."

"Art is what you can get away with."

"It’s not what you are that counts, it’s what they think you are."

"Sometimes people let the same problem make them miserable for years when they could just say, "So what." That's one of my favorite things to say. "So what."

"People sometimes say that the way things happen in the movies is unreal, but actually, it's the way things happen to you in life that's unreal. The movies make emotions look strong and real, whereas when things really do happen to you, it's like you're watching television -- you don't feel anything."

So much love for this disastrous pair, and for her style! I may well have to write about it sometime...
