Quote of the Day

“Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.”

– Cecil Beaton (1904-1980): English fashion & portrait photographer, and Academy Award-winning stage & costume designer for films and theatre. His achievements included the costumes for the film musicals Gigi (1958) and My Fair Lady (1964), both of which earned him the Academy Award for Costume Design.
