Modelling is a silly, crazy business.
I'm a fun person. I like cracking jokes and being completely nerdy.
A beautiful person is someone who stays true to themselves and their spirit; someone who is self-confident and can make you smile.
When you are modelling, you are creating a picture, a still life, perhaps something like a silent film. You convey emotion but you are only using your body.
In modelling, there is no point in trying to prove you have a brain, so why even bother? I'd sooner save the energy for something more meaningful.
I am very much aware of the visual side of things. I do a lot of photography. I often take Polaroids of things that strike me as visually interesting, just to remember them and perhaps use later.
It's incredible to have been part of fashion history - my whole career has been one big highlight.
