I don't think just being skinny means necessarily anorexic.
It's not really like you have a thing like a supermodel anymore. It's more of a word than a real existence. I think, also, looking at it from a designer's point of view at one point maybe they felt the stars took too much attention away from the clothes.
Places like New York are just too intense, too much about money, too much about ambition; it's all too superficial for me.
You know what I always dreamed of? That with the greenhouse effect, one day Estonia can be what L.A. is right now. I always thought when the end of the world comes, I want to be in Estonia. I think then I'd survive.
