Catherine Zeta Jones and her daughter Carys Zeta Douglas wears Michael Kors dresses and Tiffany & Co. earrings on the September cover of Town & Country magazine photographed by Victor Demarchelier, styled by Nicoletta Santoro.
On adjusting to the paparazzi and defining who she is in the public eye:
“I used to get really upset. They [paparazzi] would jump on the subway and sit right in front of me. I was like, six. I was confused. That’s when I knew, ‘If this is going to be what it’s like, I need to focus on who I really am, and this is going to be something that’s just going to happen, and I can’t do anything about it.”
On having to prove herself being a part of the Douglas Dynasty:
“When I was younger I didn’t like the idea of having his name attached, this kind of ‘Douglas Dynasty’ stuff. I think what bothers me the most is that people think I don’t work hard for it, that I don’t need to work hard for it. That anything I do gets handed to me. When, honestly, I feel like it’s the opposite. I feel I need to constantly prove myself to people – that I am not just my parents’ daughter.”
On how she and mother bond over fashion:
“Fashion has been so important in my life, because my mom is like a fashion icon to me. I’m always looking through her closet.”
What Catherine Zeta-Jones is most proud of in her children:
“What I instilled in my kids, and I’m very, very proud of it, is manners. There’s nothing worse than a privileged kid without manners. I drilled it into them like boot camp. The teenage years…She [Carys] knows she cannot roll her eyes at me, or huff and puff around me. I never did it to my mother; and she’s not doing it to me.” (source)

Cruz on Donatella Versace: “To me she [Donatella Versace] is like a heroine. She has demonstrated in so many ways in her life how to be an incredible woman.”
Ramírez on his admiration for Gianni Versace: “He [Gianni Versace] was a visionary and a disrupter, and we’re experiencing an era that he helped create aesthetically. There were no designers expressing that rock ‘n’ roll approach to couture before Gianni – this mix of sexuality and celebrity. The current obsession with fame started with Gianni.” (source)
