“It is a relation[ship] that began poorly, and I think it will end the same way.”

Oscar de la Renta on his non-relationship with Michelle Obama. The designer, who had dressed every first lady from Betty Ford to Laura Bush, got off on the wrong foot in 2009 when he dissed a cardigan Obama wore to meet the queen and, well, the call just never came after that. Fine by him. “An anonymous woman on the street is the woman who influences fashion today,” he told AP, “not a movie star or a first lady.”
