In the new issue of V magazine, which hits newsstands this Friday, Cedric Buchet has photographed five powerful women in the image-making industry—Cecilia Dean, Carol Alt, Pat Cleveland, Martine Malle, and Emmanuelle Seigner—who "defy time with confidence, never betraying the essence of who they are." Some notable quotes from the story:

· “I’m a thousand times more confident than I was ten or twenty years ago. I’m also healthier, smarter, fitter, stronger, and faster than ever.” – Cecilia Dean · “The sexiest thing about a women is her health. When you feel good, everyone is attracted to you. But if you look sick, they’ll steer a wild path around you.” – Carol Alt

· “My heart controls my head. And thank God!” – Martine Malle

· “I live my life like a dog: I sniff what smells good, eat what tastes good, and run after squirrels! Think like a dog and your life will be fine, you bitches!” – Pat Cleveland

· “Age is a number on a piece of paper.” – Emmanuelle Seigner
