What does being attractive mean to you?
Being attractive is not about how much makeup you wear or how fly you think you have to look. To me being attractive is about glowing — being happy from within because you are free to be yourself. On the runway I put on many faces and wear fashions that are as far from my personality as you can get, but I try to put a little bit of myself in my walk and in my attitude so that I not only sell the collection, but also sell myself as a confident and attractive woman.
