Quotes:

“I still get butterflies when I’m doing a runway show. The music starts, you’re wearing these gorgeous clothes and your nervous about your high heels, if your shoes are going to break, if your going to slip or do something wrong.”

“If you believe in yourself and feel confident in yourself, you can do anything. I really believe that.”

“You learn to control every aspect of your muscles, your face, your toes, your fingernails. And that is how you tell a story, through movement.”

“Holy cow, in the course of one week I feel like I’ve lived about a year!”

“I’m one of those tall, lanky, awkward kids.”

Christy Turlington is my idol. She really is. She’s a gorgeous woman inside and out. I admire her work in the charity field. She’s just been able to balance it all – and gracefully, as well.”
