My biggest challenge in making ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ was simply to maintain a tone of sophistication and reality.

Listen, I’m never going to be the kind of guy who wears Bose headphones on the street.

It’s not easy being Hugh Jackman, but he wears the attention better than anyone I’ve ever met. He treats every person he meets the same and finds joy in everything he does. The lesson I’ve learned is that if you work incredibly hard, and you’re nice to everybody, you’ll be fine.
For many women, going back to work a few months after having a baby is overwhelming and unmanageable.

The parents say, ‘Can you talk to my daughter and say that it’s OK? That she can have muscles?’ They’ll say, ‘I show her pictures of you so they can know she’s good at what she does but still looks like a girl. She wears dresses.’ It releases people to be whoever they want to be in the sport.
I stopped wearing jewelry for a couple of reasons. One is because everybody wears jewelry. I outgrew it; I’m getting a little wiser and growing, so… Another reason is because the richest people that I’ve ever met in my life, they’ve never had on jewelry.

I’m someone who wears their heart on their sleeve.
I have a girl crush on Rachel Bilson. She’s so cute, I just want to put her in my pocket. I love her style, and I’m fascinated by everything she wears, and I think she’s a really sweet and kind person. She’s cute. I like her.
Kristen Stewart always looks good – she wears what she wants. It’s the same with Alison Mosshart – she chooses clothes that she loves rather than what she thinks she should wear.

In Brazil, the one who wears 10 constructs the attacks. That is what I will try to do here. The number I have at Liverpool does not give me any added pressure.

Falling in love is a chemical reaction. But it wears off in a year. That’s why you need a strong line of communication… which includes laughter.

A home-made friend wears longer than one you buy in the market.
People automatically assume that because you’re an actor, you’re a blank canvas 24/7. But I can’t wear what everyone else wears. If I went to an audition, I’d wear what the character would wear, but the moment I’m done with the audition or done filming, I go back into my high-waisteds.
I, uh, well, it’s the first thing that you do when you go to a job, you go out and do the footings and you see all the clothes, and for me, that really helps kind of create a sense of who that person is and what she wears and it, yeah.
I don’t like things that are uncomfortable – everything we do, however structured or detailed, needs to be made so that when someone wears it, they completely forget about it.
I’m sick of watching ‘Blue Lives Matter’ supporters idly stand by any police officer simply because he wears blue, ignoring the facts that should make them cringe in disbelief and horror. Police brutality is systemic, not anecdotal.

Some of the stuff that Wilmer wears is bad. And Debra Jo.
I’m really not a fascist. Everyone wears what they feel great in, or comfortable with. It’s a beautiful day, you have an armless shirt: it goes with flip-flops.

A girl must have an indefinable magic, real character, a strong sense of self. Her role is to respond to the brief of a photographer or communicate the vision of a designer – while making whatever she does look utterly effortless and whatever she wears utterly seamless.

I think that a woman wears so many hats, we have so many aspects to us that we’re not just one thing. We represent so much within us and that kind of comes across for me as a designer through mixing prints and colors.
It is the timber of poetry that wears most surely, and there is no timber that has not strong roots among the clay and worms.

Power wears out those who don’t have it.
