I'm not interested in making clothes that are not accessible.

Sometimes it feels like it hurts when you make a big purchase, so I really believe that the more expensive things should be gems that you keep in your closet, not trends.

Modeling isn't boring.

I've gotten out of bed a lot of days for a lot less than $10,000.

I know that some of the spiritual beliefs that I have are that if I come from a place of love, and I try to get out of my ego and my desire to want more and be selfish in any shape or form, then whatever I'm doing is not good.

I do say no to things that I think are completely gratuitous.

If you can be funny, it means you're intelligent. Your brain is working fast.

I am a kid. I'll always be a girl at heart.

Art is for entertainment purposes, but it's also to reflect our dreams, our hopes, the present, the future the past - whether it's good or bad.

We are what we see. We are products of our surroundings.

I don't really want to control anyone, to be honest.

It is in the mind and the heart where we meet. It's not the body-the body will change.
