High­lights of your ca­reer so far? r? I’ve walked the cat­walk many times for r Jean Paul Gaultier, Chanel, and Dior. It was a plea­sure work­ing with Alexan­der McQueen, es­pe­cially on his ear­lier shows. Steven Meisel was a treat; he’s such a clever man. Work­ing with Irv­ing Penn, that was a real ex­pe­ri­ence. “I love that the fash­ion n If you weren’t a model, world is em­brac­ing what would you be? beauty from all across the I’ve no idea! I started so young; world. Beauty is global.” I was 15 when I en­tered my first com­pe­ti­tion and 16 when I started work. Per­haps an ac­tress or a dancer. You get dolled up for shows; what about in your down time? Usu­ally light make-up. For work they pile it on, which I love but my skin doesn’t like. Shu Ue­mura Face Ar­chi­tect foun­da­tion is so light and blends in nicely, and the Depsea wa­ter in it is good for the skin. I love MAC mas­cara and eye­liner, and Lancôme or MAC blusher to make it look like I’ve had d eight hours sleep when I’ve only had three. A beauty icon? Deb­bie Harry.

The most im­por­tant thing is be­ing ver­sa­tile, atile, be­ing able to adapt be­cause you put yourself ur­self in so many dif­fer­ent sit­u­a­tions with var­i­ous ious people. Hav­ing a sense of hu­mour is re­ally ally im­por­tant, too. I think there is not just one per­cep­tion of beauty any­more. I love that at the fash­ion world is em­brac­ing beauty from all across the world. Beauty is global. Jade Parfitt and de­signer friend Jasper Con­ran Tell us about the phil­an­thropic work you do.
