Notable Quotables: From Viola Davis to Lara Stone to Andre Saraiva, the Best of What Was Said to PAPERMAG This Fashion Week

Whew! What a week. We went to a lot of shows, a lot of parties, a lot of after-parties -- and talked to a lot of people. Here's the best of the best of what various designers, editors, celebrities and general fabulous types said to us. Now excuse us while we take one and a half Nyquil, bring our laptop into bed and watch the first five minutes of Parenthood before we pass out and sleep for 17 hours.

Screen shot 2012-02-17 at 5.02.31 PM.png"I actually look weird when I dress up like a boy... when I try to do the full boy tuxedo look, I look ridiculous. It's kind of like that scene in The Birdcage where Nathan Lane tries to wear a suit and wears yellow stockings underneath... it's that.  I also have a weird sense of my body because I'm an ice skater so everything's always tight and sparkly and shiny and I have a tendency to go too much. -- Johnny Weir at the Alice + Olivia show.

I'm not allowed to buy any clothes this month." -- Kim Schifino of Matt & Kim, at the Alice + Olivia show. (Photo by Billy Farrell/BFAnyc.com)

"We have these incredibly powerful minimalist urges that last for about 30 seconds -- and then we go back to tchotchke village." -- Simon Doonan

"It's the type of clothes, if you have to go to the bank, and don't want to look like a fashion nutcase. If you put on that suit, you'll get the money." -- Norma Kamali, on her new line Kamali Kulture.
