Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1Working with Mario Testino was a joy. He's very young-spirited, and it's always lovely and a pleasure to spend time talking to him about all different things.
2I wanted to be a Disney Channel star! I wanted to be Hannah Montana.
3I like a little bit of designer, with a bit of vintage and high street mixed in. I love it when you find those one-off key pieces, which end up becoming investment pieces.
4I just don't think that I trust men. That's the problem. I can appreciate a beautiful-looking man, but he's not my type.
5Fashion Week is horrible. I mean, it isn't horrible, really--it's amazing. But having to work that much every day is.
6I love Christopher Bailey and Burberry, Mulberry for bags, and Hudson for jeans.
7When I was younger, I liked money--the feel of it. I would sit with my dad and count his coins and be like, "Yeah". I'd saved £700 by the age of 10. I thought, "What the hell am I hoarding this for?". So I bought a drum kit.
8I'm a world class Beat Boxer; you should hear the noises I can make with my mouth.
9When I was really small, my mother had difficulty keeping me dressed, as I liked to be naked! I definitely had very strong ideas on what I wanted to wear. My favourite look was always Action Man and Spiderman. Now though, I really like beautiful clothes.
10Ooh, I'd love to be in a movie with Meryl Streep or Martin Scorsese. There are so many different things I want to do, maybe like a possessed child or an evil something . . . I don't know!
11[on acting] That's what I've wanted to do my whole life, just act. When I was younger I loved to entertain people. I always used to make up dance routines, do little plays. I love to perform, basically.
12I've started doing yoga and meditation, but I'm not very good at that kind of thing and turning my brain off.
13Fame, do I like it? No. It has bought a lot for me in my career, but there are a lot of downsides to it. You give up your privacy. I did it to myself but not to my family and friends. You don't ask for it. You just have to live with it.
14If I was rich enough, I would love to launch my own record label. I would love to try and give all my musically talented friends a start in the industry.
15My way of relaxing was always doing the opposite and playing the drums, but I need to be able to actually chill.
16I like fashion, but I love, love, love music and film; they are my two passions. I would love to pursue my acting and my love of music more than anything.
17Of course, I loved Spice Girls. I loved [Geri Halliwell] and Baby Spice [Emma Bunton] , but who liked Posh Spice [Victoria Beckham]? They said I looked like her, and I said, "That's not cool, that's really mean".
18I want to make music, I want to act, I want to sing, I want to do something that doesn't make my skin erupt.
19I love comfort. Comfort is very key to me because I spend most of my time in very uncomfortable things, so it's all about trainers and flats.
20It's hard finding people you trust or who aren't going to take your money. Everyone wants to get a piece of whatever you're doing. It's a nightmare.
21I love to beatbox and have been doing it before I even knew what it was.
22When you model, there's no way you can't notice yourself. Do you know what I mean? Because you're constantly surrounded by people saying, "Oh, she's too short, she's too skinny, she's this, she's whatever". And you're right there. They're talking about you, and you're right there.
23What bothers me, I guess, is when I get these messages from girls on Twitter, and they're like, "God, you're my idol, I really admire you". It's like, "Admire me for what? What have I done?" It's not that being in a Burberry campaign, or walking in a Chanel show is nothing. It's just . . . I know I can do more.
24If I am able to carry on modeling, I'll be very happy to, but my passion is definitely in music and acting. I would love to do what Meryl Streep is doing. Her or Judi Dench, or maybe Charlize Theron as well.
25I've always wanted to do a shoot with snakes--big snakes, like pythons.
26My dream is to go spend a week on some island with no phone.
27I had no interest in fashion when I was younger. I was such a tomboy.
28I treat the camera like a person--I gaze into it. Photos are a flat thing, and you need to put life into them.
29Kids should speak to each other. They're horrid to each other online, they bully each other--they should shut up and stop it. The problem with social media is there is too much freedom. It's too much, too young.
30The energy you give off is the energy you receive. I really think that, so I'm always myself--jumping, dancing, singing around, trying to cheer everybody up.
31I want to fall in love, I think. I've never. I know. Everyone I know's been in love or in relationships now and . . . There's only ever been . . . there's been people telling me they love me, but it freaks me out and I just run, run. I think I'm a bad girlfriend.
