My friend made me a leather dress for the MTV awards. It gives you confidence, wearing something you love.

I can’t live without my leather jacket – it’s the best way to dress up a plain outfit.

Adrienne Bailon
There was a chance for me to write one song for the section where Elvis sat in his black leather outfit and sang the old hits. At eight oclock the next morning I had written Memories.
Mac Davis
I’ve always had rock star envy. Unfortunately, writing is a pedestrian, tame occupation done while sitting in coffee-stained pajamas in front of a computer rather than prowling around a huge stage in sweaty leather pants, so I have to get my kicks vicariously.
Kate Christensen
I don’t really know what ‘a dark place’ means. I have windows in my house, and I’m generally an upbeat person! A lot of people throw that word at me because I wear a lot of black and leather.
Natalia Kills
Mam loves to buy presents but she hates decorations. We once had a black Christmas tree because we had a new black leather couch and she wanted it to match.

Jochen Zeitz
I’m not suggesting that microbial cellulose is going to be a replacement for cotton, leather or other textile materials. But I do think it could be quite a smart and sustainable addition to our increasingly precious natural resources.

Poppy Delevingne
My favorite leather jacket I got for 40 bucks at the Fairfax Flea Market, like, eight years ago. Leather just gets better over time. There’s something about a jacket that you have over years and years – just fits like a glove.
Jack Falahee
In a pinch, when my leather shoes need a quick shine, I take the inside of a banana peel and rub it on the leather like I would a shoe wax. Then I spit-shine it and buff it with a cloth, and my shoes look great.

Avoid patent leather, pink, and crystals.

Avoid patent leather, pink, and crystals.
Edgardo Osorio
Sure, Tod’s makes shoes and bags. But we make them using leather, which is a living substance to me. And behind each shoe and bag, which in itself may be attractive and useful and comfortable to carry and wear, there is this Italian spirit, this Italian dream.
Diego Della Valle
My father was so very afraid. I felt it in the sting of his black leather belt, which he applied with more anxiety than anger, my father who beat me as if someone might steal me away, because that was exactly what was happening all around us.
Ta-Nehisi Coates
I do, I kick major butt in ‘Dredd.’ I get to kill people. I break a guy’s neck by roundhouse kicking him in the face. It was me, I did it. I learned how to roundhouse kick. I also do it with my hands cuffed behind my back so it’s pretty cool I have to say. Yeah, leather body suit, blonde hair, the whole thing.
Olivia Thirlby
Every day I’d say I look different. Sometimes I look really formal, sometimes I love the classic Stella McCartney, Chloe Sevigny and Gwyneth Paltrow thing. Other days I like being rock star and wearing leather jackets and studs. I love wearing Burberry – it’s the perfect combination of formal and punky.
Ellie Goulding
I never wore a studded leather jacket, y’know. Ne-va!

I deliberately decided to write a kind of guide to leather bars for straight people, for people not into leather, so that people could see what it was all about.
Thom Gunn
I say it all the time: it’s different when two heavyweights, especially when they are the size of Ben Rothwell, face each other in the Octagon. Even the leather – right in the back seat of the arena, they will be able to hear the sounds of the punches.
Junior dos Santos
Because we always have to wear a uniform to compete, my teammates and I look the exact same. My belt is the only accessory that I get to choose. I usually wear a yellow cloth belt with cherries or a leather belt with a beautiful tree buckle that I got at a thrift store.
Hannah Kearney
I don’t want to look at other people my age in leather. Why would I put it on?

Berluti, we manufacture wonderfully successful sneakers, which I’m proud of. But I certainly don’t forget the beauty we have to cultivate, the prestige of Venezia leather bespoke shoes, because this is a unique know-how that does not exist anywhere else.

Neil Jackson
I really love Paul Smith. And Chrome Hearts. They make the most beautiful, high-end leather and outerwear and jewelry you’ve ever seen. But I’m not a big fan of shopping. I certainly am a fan of clothes and especially people that put time into the construction of them.
Dean Winters
Some mornings, it’s just not worth chewing through the leather straps.
Emo Philips
Animal rights can be as extreme as not riding a horse, or not wearing leather, not having a pet at all. Animal welfare advocates are preventing the suffering of animals. And then there’s conservation and species conservation and what conservation biologists do.
Eric Goode
You’ll never see me in the red leather. I don’t have the chin for it.

I’m not wearing leather shoes, and I have not worn furs since a long time ago. I have to be very conscious when I’m making decisions and saying I’m vegan because I have to be about it all the way.
I never, ever saw myself as glam because I didn’t wear makeup… my image is a plain leather jumpsuit, which is not glam at all. I’ve always seen myself as rock n’ roll and not glam.

I always love to dress up, but I usually end up in a le

I never wear leather.
Linda Fiorentino
Karl Lagerfeld looks very tough because of the glasses, and he has all these rings and the leather gloves, and he’s so smart. But he’s a very nice person… when he comes into a room or studio, he is going to say hello to each person, and the same when he leaves.
Carine Roitfeld
I’ve got one of those over-stuffed leather chairs from the Pottery Barn. It faces north. I live in San Francisco, so there’s the Golden Gate Bridge off to the left, and there’s Alcatraz off to the right, and I’ve got a pile of pulp fiction next to me, and there’s usually a decent bottle of red wine next to the fireplace.
Mike Rowe
When I first started buying shoes with my own money, I would always get them from eBay. I used to hack my mum’s account, and suddenly these white cowboy leather boots would arrive.
Suki Waterhouse
I really like a lot of Tom Ford. His leather sneakers are my most worn shoes.
P. J. Tucker
My personal style changes on a dime. One day, I’ll be all about flowing, breezy maxi dresses, and the next, I’m in tight leather pants. It depends on the day and my mood.
Italia Ricci
I feel like my style is very much androgynous. It’s rock, chic, like casual wear, but then on the flip side to that, being that it’s so androgynous, it’ll either be skinny jeans and a leather jacket, or if I’m doing a red carpet or event, I’ll completely flip that and be wearing a suit or a dress.
Ruby Rose
My six favorite textures for fall and winter are leather, fur, tweed, mohair, velvet and wool. I love that they are all as warm as they are fashionable and easy to incorporate into your wardrobe.

My style is kind of all over the place. I’ve always loved the combination of leather and lace, but that’s probably just been something that I fall back on if I can’t really figure out what to wear.
Cassadee Pope
In a meat-eating world, wearing leather for shoes and clothes and even handbags, the discussion of fur is childish.
Karl Lagerfeld
I go through different phases and change my mind about my style all the time. In the winter, I wanted to wear jeans and pumps and black and leather all the time. Right now, I want to wear long skirts and belts, with my hair in a ponytail. It changes all the time!
Heather Morris
My parents let me get my outfit in the gayest place possible, the ‘International Male Catalog.’ They sold mostly speedos and thongs and clubwear, and I was like, I’m getting that sheer shirt with the dragon on it, and then those vinyl patent leather pants and the cheetah platform boots.
Willam Belli
When I met the Beatles, they were wearing these funny little leather jackets, which inspired me. I had a suit made for myself out of fine, good black leather. It looked different. I was using leather but putting a different fashion angle on how it looked.
Astrid Kirchherr
In our family, when you have a part-time job you are then responsible for non-essential clothing. Glittery tops, skirts with tassels, clompy patent leather shoes that are the sensible girl’s version of stilettos.
Sarah Millican
I love Yves Saint Laurent and Giambattista Valli and Givenchy, and I get given quite a lot, but perhaps nothing is as wonderful as the white fake leather trench coat I got when I was 15.
Natalia Vodianova
I love to go into John Varvatos and look at the beautiful leather jackets. They’re beautiful and soft. I try them on, and then I look at the price tag and go and pick up a t-shirt. It’s just the way I am.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
When I travel, I always take my Winsor & Newton watercolor kit, which is the size of a pack of cigarettes when folded up. I bought my first one in the 1980s. It was handy to bring on trips, and I packed it into a leather pouch along with a couple of brushes, a pencil, an eraser and paper.
Susan Minot
I’ve always been a T-shirt, Levi’s, leather jacket, and combat boots kind of girl.
Robin Wright
I feel most bossy in jeans, a white t-shirt, a leather jacket and some heels. I just feel bossy that way. I also feel confident in a sick dress at a premiere. Like most women, as long as I’m comfortable in it, I feel confident.
Tika Sumpter
I’ve always questioned the way dancers, myself included, must do the same role year in and year out. It’s important for me to be able to say to myself, ‘O.K., I don’t want to be a prince anymore. I want to put on a leather jockstrap and pose.’
David Hallberg
I’ve known a lot of people who were punkers who went on to get academic degrees. Very few of them, however, continued their active role in the punk community. Most of them hung up their leather jacket when they did so.
Greg Graffin
I am mean as cats’ meat about handbags: mine don’t ever look chic. I always prefer bags that aren’t made of leather.
Joanna Lumley
People don’t want to hear about me having leather walls or gold toilets.
Kevin Hart
You can’t be seen in your mid-40s wearing leather pants. No leather pants anymore.
Scott Weiland
My wardrobe for ‘Suits’ isn’t like ‘Working Girl’ – dressing for work doesn’t have to be so on-the-nose these days. The key is to have your own point of view attached to it. Personally, I love cropped pants in vegan leather, a great fitted blazer, and a button-down.
Meghan Markle
Avoid patent leather, pink, and crystals.
Edgardo Osorio
My Helmut Lang leather pants are my most treasured possession – I’ve worn them almost every day for two years, and they look good with everything.
Jessica Hart
My style is understated because everything I wear, I want it to have an effortless feel to it. I always want to be comfortable in my clothes and feel like myself, but I like to usually throw in some edge in there somewhere, even just with a leather jacket. But overall, always gotta keep it classy!
Tori Kelly
Everyone should have a great leather jacket in their wardrobe. It is perfect to wear with a T-shirt and jeans and great pair of high tops.
Brad Goreski
My style overall is whatever is comfy, whatever I feel like wearing that day that I feel good in. I have some really classic pieces that I can dress up, dress down, wear to the movies or wear to a really nice dinner. And I love a really good leather jacket.
Jenna Ushkowitz
With women, I've got a long bamboo pole with a leather

With women, I’ve got a long bamboo pole with a leather loop on the end. I slip the loop around their necks so they can’t get away or come too close. Like catching snakes.
Marlon Brando
I love a modern suit paired with a polo or cotton T-shirt… and then paired with leather sneakers, or cashmere joggers with a tailored blazer and a sleeveless puffer vest to get the ultimate informal and formal combination.
Brunello Cucinelli
I did always say I wanted to infiltrate from within. That was always my reasoning behind going into partnership with a luxury group that uses a lot of leather in their products.
Stella McCartney
People always want an explanation about everything and I cannot give it to them. Because I don’t know myself. ‘Why did you do a pair of pants like that?’ I have no idea. I’m not going to have a 20-minute political discussion about the necessity for slashed, painted leather jeans. Basically, I don’t know more than you.
Hedi Slimane
I’d always wanted to be an action heroine. That’s a chick dream, getting to wear a leather bodysuit and be blonde and kick ass. But, what really attracted me to ‘Dredd’ was the script. It was fantastic! It was about people and characters, and not just about explosions and fighting.
Olivia Thirlby
Jordans? No. I thought mohawks, leather jackets, studs, piercings, colored hair, leopard print, platforms, all the bondage wear, I thought that was the coolest thing.
Princess Nokia
On a date night, I always wear a pump with either a baggy jean or a tight pair of black leather pants. I’ll wear a plain T-shirt with a leather jacket or a bomber. If I’m feeling girly, I always do a loose dress with a pair of booties.
Camila Morrone
Some people collect vintage cars, I collect Birkins. The leather ones are £20,000.
Tamara Ecclestone
Ice Cube went straight outta Compton to hearing, ‘Are we there yet?’ Eddie Murphy blew up striding across the stage in a red leather ensemble that would have made Elvis Presley chuckle, yet is probably best known to anyone born in the 21st century as the overly chatty donkey from ‘Shrek.’
Elvis Mitchell
I have a handful of leather jackets, and I love them all. I think most men my age do, and it can be traced back to the Fonz and Danny Zuko.
Jonathan Tropper
One dress I love – for me, it’s a little edgy – it’s sleeveless. It’s black and it’s leather. I’ve worn it on TV.
Dana Bash
I organize my denim, leather, and dresses by color, although my jeans are pretty much just black and gray.
Kate Moss
I have a Manhattan club chair in dark espresso leather that I always read in. It’s a place where I can contemplate other people’s thoughts and stir my imagination.
Merle Dandridge
Every day I’d say I look different. Sometimes I look really formal, sometimes I love the classic Stella McCartney, Chloe Sevigny and Gwyneth Paltrow thing. Other days I like being rock star and wearing leather jackets and studs. I love wearing Burberry – it’s the perfect combination of formal and punky.
Ellie Goulding
I go to Shenzhen, China, and am taken to a vast luxury spa with a hundred leather recliners and a hundred accompanying plasma screen televisions bolted to the ceiling.
Kevin Kwan
I like to dress in edgy black leather and denim, but I like a wide range of things.
Lauren Jauregui
I have long been of the mindset that aviators are like leather jackets – when they’re perfect, they give you ‘instant cool.’ They’re the Alexa Chung of sunglasses.
Emily Weiss
It was Julie Burchill who decreed that, beyond a certain age, a man should not be seen in a leather jacket.
Arthur Smith
I like a bohemian floral dress, but then I’ll throw on a leather jacket or a pair of lace-up boots to give it an edge. My mom is always trying to get me to wear really sweet clothes. Something pink. But that’s not really my look.
Margaret Qualley
It’s hard to encapsulate my inspiration because there are so many different looks, but I think it’s just like, sexy girl you see walking down the street in a cool outfit. A lot of eyelet, a lot of leather, playing with the hard and the soft, the good and bad inside of us all.
Chloe Sevigny
If I’m shopping at the Gap or Old Navy, I’m saying that I’m an ordinary person: I don’t want to be seen; I don’t want to stand out. That’s a statement. If I’m wearing a leather jacket, there’s something about me that’s kind of a rebel. So everybody says something, whether they want to or not.
I throw a leather biker jacket over everything. It adds an instant downtown cool vibe and stops a look becoming too girlie. Bonus points if you wear it like a cape!
Ashley Madekwe
I tend to wear leather pants with crew neck sweaters or leather jackets with denim.
Nina Garcia
I’m a big fan of the Adidas three-stripe old-school zip-up tracksuit tops. I’ve got several for everyday wear, including an olive-green one, a burgundy one and a cream one with leather arms.
Jonas Armstrong
I don’t buy any leather goods or anything made from animal products – no down, nothing. It’s something people should be mindful of.

I love seeing people’s reactions to gifts that I’ve created from my line, such as my gold horn ring, bottle openers, my ‘Fallen’ leather jacket and my Slither black and white sweater.
Kelly Wearstler
I’m heavily influenced by the Nineties – I love juxtaposing a slip dress with trainers and a vintage leather jacket.
Dua Lipa
We are killing a living thing just so that we can wear it? I think fake leather is also beautiful and lasts longer. All I am saying is that if you like wearing leather stuff, put in some extra effort and explore the market. Take on fake leather and stop being part of this cruelty.
Harshvardhan Rane
Style is not a reward for the skinny. It’s not, ‘iI I’m rich, thin and young.’ You may not like your size, but then don’t invest in leather leggings. Let yourself want the expensive bag and really love it and show it off and have a ball with it.
Stacy London
This camera works like photosynthesis. It is as if you were Xeroxing your own face. The pictures have such physicality: their surface is like fine leather, stained from chemicals. Each one has a body and is more than an image.
Julian Schnabel
I go back to the rock n’ roll black leather jacket, red lips, smoky eyes. I like my high heels, maybe some leather pants or ripped jeans, things that have never really gone out of style. Again, it’s very reflective of who I am as a bandmate in our band.
Lzzy Hale
I didn't wear a leather jacket, man. I didn't grow up i

I didn’t wear a leather jacket, man. I didn’t grow up in the ’50s.
Tim Robinson
I’m not body-conscious, but show me a woman who genuinely wants to show the tops of her thighs squashed on a leather bar stool.
Helen Skelton
The hardest part about being vegan is shoes. I mean, really, that’s the only difficult part, finding shoes that don’t have leather on them.
Lisa Edelstein
I was a little biker girl. I thought it was cool; everyone else thought it was really weird. The other little girls were all in these pretty dresses, and my mum bought me this black, studded leather jacket, which I loved.
Freja Beha Erichsen
In Hollywood we acquire the finest novels in order to smell the leather bindings.
Ernst Lubitsch
I was the girl in the black leather jacket with the black fingernails, picked up after school by guys with loud cars and motorcycles. I carried straight-A grades, but I had a little trouble with rules. I tended to have a bit of an authority problem.
Melissa Marr
Every movie that I’m in is very different in terms of aesthetic and costume. I mean, from ‘Mirror, Mirror’ to ‘Mortal Instruments,’ I went from dressy dresses to leather and heels and tight, sexy, chic outfits.
Lily Collins
Consuming less is the fastest way to eco-fashion redemption – particularly if your preference is for leather, not hemp.
Sheherazade Goldsmith
I’m obsessed with leather jackets!
Joanna Garcia
I’m the biggest Drake fan – my favorite is ‘Tuscan Leather’ because it’s like three songs in one, and for somebody that’s obsessed with keys, the outro has the best keys ever.
We should eat less meat – all of us – and we should use less leather. I mean, that’s reality.
Jochen Zeitz
My friend made me a leather dress for the MTV awards. It gives you confidence, wearing something you love.
Cat Deeley
Even our early audiences were very polite. It felt like playing in our living room. I remember the audiences changing in front of me. I remember that distinctly. The way they wore their clothes became different. We got a lot of leather jackets with studs. People’s hair changed. The whole look was just a sublime move.
Bill Ward
When I first became involved with PETA, it was on an ‘issue-by-issue’ basis – they interviewed me in my old apartment about animal abuse in the circus as I sat on a leather sofa.
I like to wear boots with skirts or mini-dresses, or jeans with sneakers and jumpers, leather jackets, or a rain coat.
Chiara Ferragni
I’d like to form a club just for fathers. Specifically, fathers of daughters. There would be lots of overstuffed leather chairs, wood paneling, dim lights. The works.
Steve Schirripa
