Heiress and fashion muse Daphne Guinness, on nutrition: “I’ll eat when I’m dead.” The eccentric heiress was featured in a New Yorker profile that was full of gems, referring to Guinness as a “slightly deranged fairy.” But the best quip in Rebecca Mead’s story came when Guinness’s assistants begged her to ingest something other than Red Bull and Ensure, prompting the muse’s now-famous remark.
Vogue contributing editor Andre Leon Talley: To save money, be friends with rich people. That’s the takeaway from a recent interview with Andre Leon Talley, the larger-than-life Vogue personality who judges America’s Next Top Models on their “dreckitude.” Talley, who surely does not have to scrimp, told The Cut his favorite tips for saving money.
Sports Illustrated model Marisa Miller: When dieting, eat naked. Miller offered up her health tips to Women’s Health Magazine’s January issue, and most of them are reasonable: Practice portion control, eat grains like brown rice and quinoa and plan meals ahead of time.

Daphne Guinness, again, on makeup and creativity: Use nail polish as lipstick. Guinness told Styleist that her makeup routine is varied: “Yesterday I was using nail polish as lipstick. It's just experiment after experiment,” she said. Probably a bad idea: butyl and ethyl acetate are among several nail polish ingredients that are toxic when swallowed. And they probably taste worse on her consistently empty stomach.
