”Diana Ross. First of all, she’s a black woman, of course. I was attracted to any image that looked like me. I just thought everything she did was so flamboyant, yet so simple. It just accentuated who she was.” Viola Davis, at the Vera Wang show with Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour

”Dolly Parton. She’s an entertainer, she knows herself, and she knows how to dress for herself. She’s not afraid to be who she is, and that’s what style is all about.” —Kristin Chenoweth, at the Naeem Khan show

”Tom Ford. Come on — the guy is just incredible. [He makes] the most beautiful clothing.” —Stanley Tucci, at the Nanette Lepore show

”I love Audrey Hepburn. A whole new generation of stylish women came from her.” —Leighton Meester, at the Vera Wang show
