We think they should give out a Nobel Prize for fashion (we also think they should give one out for mathematics, but that’s another story). If the Swedes did, we think the early favorites would be Davids Bowie, Byrne, Lynch, and pretty much anyone named David (except Cross… and Crosby). Sadly, though, no one named David showed up in any of the cabbies’ answers. Oh well.

Can it be someone not alive? No one has any elegance anymore. If they do, it’s all just an act. Look at me: I’m not a man of fashion, but can’t afford it. No. For me, the most fashionable person in the world was Audrey Hepburn. There has been no one else like her. She was dripping with class. She was never ridiculous like the actresses today. No one can touch Audrey Hepburn.

Madonna. I have loved Madonna very much since I was a little boy. She always changes her look, you know? And she always looks good. The music is pretty good, too.

Definitely Jay-Z. He really knows how to dress. If I had the chance, I would like to drive for him.

I don’t know. I’m not telling you. No answer. Bad question. Why don’t you ask me about Pakistan? The elections. Something interesting.

Bill Clinton. To have so many women, he has to have style. It’s not just how you dress. It’s how you act. That man knows how to act. I’ve admired him for quite a long time.
