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

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

1Some designers retain a sense of humour about what they do, but others are deathly serious and have no life outside of it; they're lying awake night after night constructing dresses in their heads.
2There are particular images that I like. Allegro is composed of a series of still life photographs that has been put to speed. There is so much care that has gone into the composition of the cinematography.
3This was all very new to me and I did not want to ruin his film! So we worked hard on that basis of confidence that is needed to collaborate comfortably.
4When on the set of a film, you have to play natural for entire scenes in a very unnatural environment. You have to express emotions and interact with other actors and also use your voice.
5When you are modelling, you are creating a picture, a still life, perhaps something like a silent film. You convey emotion but you are only using your body.
6Women can explore so much in dressing. But if I was a guy I would wear vintage suits constantly. With crazy ties!
7I am very much aware of the visual side of things. I do a lot of photography. I often take Polaroids of things that strike me as visually interesting, just to remember them and perhaps use later.
8I still love taking pictures with Polaroid film. For me, it offers the most beautiful way of capturing reality and transferring it onto a flat piece of paper.
9I was once stranded on a broken-down boat in shark-infested waters in the middle of the Indian Ocean for five days before we were rescued while doing a 'Vogue' shoot.
10Kate is going to come back, she is going to be super-strong again. Everybody is going to want her again because she is that kind of person. She is very professional and beautiful and she is going to be around forever.
11So many times I've wanted to crack up, standing there stiff while seven women are crawling round my toes fixing hems and the designer's having a freak-out because the denim cuffs are crooked. I'm on the verge of hysteria.
12Modelling is a silly, crazy business.
13The more people explore the world, the more they realize in every country there's a different aesthetic. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.
14There will always be a desire for something new, fresh and innovative, as well as a yearning and respect for timeless elegance and beauty.
15There have been times when I've bought a whole pound of cheese and walked down the street and eaten it in one go.
16I like people who dress quirkly and differently. Like in womenswear, thank god for Helena Bonham Carter!
17I love playing around with vintage fabrics and lace.
18I wasn't worried about turning 40 at all.
19I would love to photograph Stephen Hawking. I am just fascinated by science, I really am.
20I'm a fun person. I like cracking jokes and being completely nerdy.
21I've taken my knickers off. My friends told me my panty line was visible, so I went without.
22It's incredible to have been part of fashion history - my whole career has been one big highlight.
23It's really intimidating to go on the beach in a bikini.
24Like any woman, I worry about my body.
25I believe food is the most brilliant invention ever.
26I don't look at fashion the way other people do.
27I felt like I was in the best photography school in the world - I had Herb Ritts, Bruce Weber, Richard Avedon and Irving Penn teach me.
28I find it utterly bizarre that total strangers write about your life in a completely fictional manner.
29I had never done any serious acting before, but I decided that it was a chance that I should take.
30Cheese is one of my great weaknesses, I could eat the stuff by the pound.
31From the minute I wake up until I go to bed I think about food.
32Harbour Island in the Bahamas is a wonderful little island with beautiful beaches, a great restaurant culture and friendly, welcoming atmosphere.
33I always loved the style of Jean Seberg, Jane Birkin and Marilyn Monroe.
34I am a serious food lover and Peruvian cuisine is one of the best in the world.
35If I have an hour in a city, I go to vintage stores first because it's so much cooler to find a piece that is unique. I love the thought of some girl having worn it before and living her life in it.
36A beautiful person is someone who stays true to themselves and their spirit; someone who is self-confident and can make you smile.
37Denmark is like a secret little place with its own special language.
38I want to live to be 120. That's when I will start worrying about my age.
39In modelling, there is no point in trying to prove you have a brain, so why even bother? I'd sooner save the energy for something more meaningful.
40Speaking in grand understatment about her famous catwalk figure; "I have a bit here and a bit there. Or as we say in Denmark, something to the courtyard and something to the street.""
