On her grandmother’s kindness:
“If you were a woman in Elizabeth Taylor’s life, she’d likely dress you up. She knew she was lucky to have the things she had, and a big part of how she enjoyed them was by sharing them. In my grandmother’s house in Switzerland, she had a bomb shelter that she’d turned into her wardrobe. Everybody would go down to pick out something to wear. If it looked good on you, chances are, she’d let you keep it.”
On her grandmother’s help:
“I am shy, and she pushed me to be daring. She’d accessorize my subtle outfits to be more eye-grabbing. She relished abundance. She didn’t always make the most tasteful choices, but she always had a great time.”
On her grandmother’s home:
“Living with my grandmother was like living with an auntie. Most grandmothers would say, ‘You can’t leave the house wearing that!’ Mine would see my bra strap showing, and say, ‘Just take your bra off.’”
On her grandmother’s perspective on love:
“She believed in the power of love and wasn’t afraid of being hurt. A lot of people hold their heart too close; she believed in giving it out. I think she went into every one of her marriages hoping it’d last, but the circumstances of her life were extreme.”
On her grandmother’s family:
“My grandmother loved her children deeply, but she wasn’t always able to be present for them during the very height of her fame.
