Our primary concern is not to be style icons ourselves.
Constantine quotes
Generally speaking Scottish women are pretty good. Look at Sharleen Spiteri and Lulu — you've got two fabulously well-dressed women in different ways.
Constantine
I worked in Harrods as a sales girl and I was so lazy, I just sat on my arse all day. Now I have huge respect for shop girls. It was boring, so I tried to shoplift things, but we’d always get our bags checked.




Constantine Susannah quotes
Posh does not equal style. Really, God, that's just ridiculous. Posh equals tradition. Anyone can achieve style. It doesn't matter who you are or where you're from.
Constantine Susannah
I did have Botox once and I felt like I'd had a stroke. It was so claustrophobic.
Susannah Constantine quotes
My boobs are the bane of my life, they're a real burden. Every time I have a baby, I go up two sizes. I'll probably be an E cup after this. I can't bear it.
Susannah Constantine
In social situations I still feel scared. My best friend and husband give me the freedom to be myself.
Constantine Susannah quotes
You just don't expect posh girls to grab your tits, call your trousers "too clitty" and use words like "pussy pelmet" but they do. You are so shocked by what they are saying that by the time you have recovered and thought of something to say they have whipped you out of your jeans and eased you into a Lycra cat suit.
Constantine
Susannah has become less of a Sloane Ranger and more into real life. She’s also more career-minded.

This series is more campaigning. It is more journalistic, but still hugely entertaining. It's a show we feel more proud of than anything we've done to date.
Susannah Constantine
I had one little glimpse in the mirror and it was like an electric shock. Horrifying. It took me three or four days to get over it. On air, the plastic surgeon said: "Would you have anything done?" Oh no, I said. "Do you smoke?" No, never. Soon as the camera was off I took his card and had a cigarette.




Susannah Constantine quotes
Too fat, too thin, what the fuck are you supposed to be? God bless the media!
Susannah Constantine
“…reminds us why these two well-dressed, slightly chaotic, posh ladies are so entertaining”
Constantine quotes
Ultimately, what we're doing is giving people confidence. We're probably the only people who have an opinion, who care how ordinary people dress. No one at Vogue magazine gives a shit. They work with the designers, it's more creative and artistic — they are creating something beautiful. But they don't care about how their readers end up looking — whereas we do!
Constantine Susannah
Susannah ... is on the right side of voluptuous and more laid-back. She loses things likes credit cards and keys.
Constantine Susannah quotes
We've created a range of clothing which is almost like a prescription from the doctor. Our clothes do the same thing. If you're not happy with your bum, then there's a coat that's going to hide it. If you want to create a waist, there's a dress that's going to do that for you too. We've designed it very much around the female body."
Susannah Constantine
What it is, is that you're (Trinny) the accelerator and I'm (Susannah) the break. And that's why it works.
Susannah Constantine quotes
Trinny and Susannah are what they are — there's no fakery.
Susannah Constantine
For us, it’s all about shape, and how that is going to cure a bodily defect.
Constantine Susannah
The show is much more emotional now. It's a journey, but it is still about clothes, too. It's been fascinating to see how looking good and having faith in your appearance makes you into a sexier person, which makes you attractive to your partner again. We come in as complete strangers and get to know them all extremely well. It was a privilege for Trinny and I to have these people feel they could open up to us. It was very humbling, too.
