I have to hit the gym. I have beauty appointments. I have to work toward my next job and maintaining my image, just like an athlete.

As long as designers want to dress me, photographers want to take my picture and companies think my face will help their products, then I won't go anywhere until they're done with me.

I'm so glad this worked out for me, I do think I know how to be a good model.

I love, love, love fashion so much. That's why I became a model in the first place.

I don't get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day.

Hair is the greatest thing to experiment with because it's not permanent. If I didn't like my colour, I'd just change it.

I had no illusions that my career would be any longer than three years tops.
