Quote of the Day

It's been awhile since I posted on Lou Doillon, but because she was recently in the New York Times, I'll post my favorite quote from the interview.

"What attracts me is something broken, something a bit off. I never comb my hair or make anything pretty. When people look too beautiful, it's too easy. I know I'm dressed wrong if the businessman turns his head. But I like to think that after an hour of sitting next to me on the train, he'd look. I'd have grown on him... Someone suggested I design men's wear. I should. I have such trouble dressing up as a girl."

what an interesting perspective on beauty! it seems like she sees herself as an art object. not all art is supposed to be immediately beautiful. in fact, favorite art usually takes a little warming up to. cool.
