On racism in the modeling industry :
“I do think there is still racism. Joan Smalls and Jourdan Dunn and I speak with each other and, sometimes, I’m a little horrified with the things they tell me.”
On her advice for aspiring models:
“I want people to really understand what the world of modeling is about, and how hard we work. I like the mentoring aspect, as opposed to sitting in my chair and judging someone. It’s really rewarding to see the models transformed and it makes me feel like I’m doing something right.”
On the Fall/Winter 2013 Versace Show:
“I was quite stunned at the [silent] reaction – I remember the room being quiet and I thought, ‘Oh my God, they don’t want me here!’ It was emotional for me to do the show after 14 years. I knew about it for months and couldn’t tell anyone. When I did my fitting in those amazing clothes, it was just overwhelming.”
On her diet:
“Since I had my operation on my [in 2012, after being reportedly mugged], Pilates has become very important. I don’t want to build muscle, just to tone. I let chocolate and crisps come in at times. You have to allow the little things that make you happy. For ten days prior to the Versace show, I just drank juice – carrot, ginger, pineapple – to cleanse.”
