I was a very, very shy, insecure teenager.
There's no need to dress like everyone else. It's much more fun to create your own look.
I was always telling girls who said that they wanted to be the 'next' Kate Moss or the 'next' Gisele that it wasn't possible, because the 'next' girl wasn't going to look like anybody else; she would be somebody unique. If you look at all the great models... they all have an individual look.
The trick is to find the style that is right for you. When it comes to trying new clothes, my advice is not to take it too seriously - it's all about having fun.
I've always loved life, and I've never known what's ahead. I love not knowing what might be round the corner. I love serendipity.
I love exercise, but I find it boring doing the same thing all the time, so I fluctuate between going to the gym, doing Pilates, and taking dance lessons.
Being a grown-up woman doesn't mean you can't look beautiful, individual and different.
