In fashion terms, it’s hard when you have a woman like Isabella who was so strong in her public image but couldn’t stand her ground in her personal life. I know the other side. She would say that fashion killed her. But, also, she allowed that to happen in a lot of ways. She got herself some good jobs, and she let some of them go. But that’s just the nature of Isabella. You’ve got to let someone like that be herself. And just accept them. You could sit Isabella down and tell her what she should do with her life and her money and all that, but actually getting the job and holding it down… She would never understand that all it came down to was: ‘You just are, Isabella. And that is your commodity.’ She never understood that because of her insecurities. She would let people play her, and she wouldn’t play herself.” — Alexander McQueen, commenting on Isabella Blow, The New York Times
