Sometimes all you need in life is some inspiration. And as we write countless Trend Reports and start to gear up for Fashion Week, we can't help but turn to the fashion greats for their wisdom, wit, and honesty. They haven't gone down in history solely because of their designs (though that's obviously their biggest claim to fame!), the fashion elite are always being interviewed -- thus giving us some very memorable quotes to live by.

But seriously. "Life's a party. Dress like it." (Duly noted, Lilly Pulitzer!)
