From New York Magazine:
I think I've exhausted the subject. Interesting bits and pieces have scrambled out of the quagmire of gossip and fashion.
Proust with his dressing in lots of layers to stay warm , presumably, would not have been a fashion icon. Hate the word icon, the most overused and undeservedly used word in the language. Why did I use it? Merde. A fashion statement. That's better.
