Greg Gorman, Andy Warhol

Greg Gorman, Andy Warhol

I admit to having worn suede and leather pants myself for a while, but you just never feel clean, and it’s degenerate, anyway, to wear animal skins unless it’s to keep warm…So I went back to bluejeans after that degenerate period. Very happily. Bluejeans wind up being the cleanest thing you can wear, because it’s just their nature to be washed a lot. And they’re so American in essence.

A good plain look is my favorite look. if I didn’t want to look so “bad,” I would want to look “Plain.” That would be my next choice.
Think rich, look poor.Fashion wasn’t what you wore someplace anymore; it was the whole reason for going.

I`d prefer to remain a mystery. I never like to give my background and, anyway, I make it all up different every time I`m asked. It`s not just that it`s part of my image not to tell everything, it`s just that I forget what I said the day before, and I have to make it all up over again.

With Warhol it’s not so much how he looks, but what he says about fashion.  The “plain” look famously offset with dark glasses and innumerable wigs.

    “Think rich, look poor” started a style revolution, of which I remain a proponent!
