Who was the first designer to cast you in a show?

Roland Mouret.

Do you have a favorite show to walk in? Which was the most memorable?

My two favourite and most memorable shows I've ever done are Prada and Victoria's Secret. They are so different and so fun to be a part of.


Which three items should you always pack in your hand luggage?

Charger, change of clothes and toiletries.

What has been your defining moment so far as a model?

My defining moment as a model was becoming the first face of Chanel Chance fragrance at the age of 15, and then ten years later being the face of it again. And being in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue nine years in a row. I really felt after that that I’d made it. I have been so lucky to be able to have such a long career.


What are your travel essentials?

Workout clothes and bands, tons of fruit and nuts, and a great book. I pack a little bit of everything in case my plans change and I have to travel to another country, but I make sure it all fits in a carry-on.

Who is your style icon?

Kate Moss.

Name three things in your make-up bag.

MUN oil, RMS lip balm and Tom Ford concealer.

Your perfect pair of jeans?


Favourite place to party?

Brazilian Farofa night in NYC.

What’s the most treasured item in your wardrobe?

The white leather and black lace Versace dress that I wore to my prom.

What do you snack on?

Apples, pistachios, cashews, blueberries.
