Taylor Hill Quotes:
“With high fashion, it’s a little more serious. It’s about the clothes, obviously, and it’s not really about you, it’s about their clothes and the designer. With the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, yes it’s about the clothes, but it’s mostly about you because you train so hard, you work out so hard every single day. This is what girls work so hard for and you get to be on TV. Both are very special, but the Victoria’s Secret one is just so different, you can’t even compare it to a normal fashion show.”
“I didn’t always think that I was beautiful and I didn’t always believe in myself, and I think it’s so important to have self confidence and always remember who you are. No matter what people tell you, it’s always about what you think of yourself in the end. People have told me a million things in my life — and especially my career as a model, like, “Oh she’s too pretty, she’s too tan, she’s too short, she’s too tall, she’s not skinny enough.” — and it’s crazy! You can’t listen to any of it and you have to remember who you are, what you do, and what makes you happy. That’s my message: happiness and positivity are such a huge thing for me.”
