You go to a show, and there’s no food at all, so if you’re doing shows back to back, you can forget eating. I remember standing up in the bath one day, and there was a mirror in front of me, and I was so thin! I hated it. I never liked being that skinny.
I thought it was quite vain to say, I want to be a model.
My daughter, Lila, is my style critic. She’ll say, ‘No, Mummy, you can’t wear that.’ She’s very good. I do trust her instinct.
I was doing shows and flying economy, and nobody ever fed me. Or I’d be staying in hotels so cheap that by the time I’d get in, there wasn’t any room service. I didn’t eat for a long time.

I was 14 when I started modeling. At the end of that first day my mum said, If you want to do this, you’re on your own because I’m not traipsing around London ever again like that. It’s a nightmare.
If the plane lost all my luggage, and I was somewhere sunny like Ibiza, I would just get a bikini, shorts, T-shirt, and sandals. If it was somewhere colder like New York, I’d go for jeans, jacket, and a pair of Louboutins.
The first time I went to New York, I went with my first boyfriend, Clark. His dad had just bought an apartment in New York, and my dad dropped us off, and we were there for a week on our own.

I was lucky to be with Johnny… he taught me a lot about fame.

Jam! I love my jam. I’ve just had a batch of it come through, I’ve been making it.
I’m definitely low maintenance, but I do have a lot of massages, and I have this girl who comes to my house to do my nails. My friends will come over ,and we’ll all get our nails done or have waxes.

I lived in New York for seven years, although I was always in denial about it. Even though I had an apartment there, I always pretended I was just visiting. I do love New York. But I’m a Londoner at heart.
I don’t really go to clubs anymore. I’m actually quite settled. Living in Highgate with my dog and my husband and my daughter! I’m not a hell-raiser. But don’t burst the bubble. Behind closed doors, for sure, I’m a hell-raiser.
All of a sudden I was living what is perceived to be the model life. It was just full-on, 24 hours a day. It was work all the time. And there’s always a party to go to.
It sounds really corny but I think that if you’re beautiful inside it shows on the outside, for sure.
I’m always thinking, ‘My goodness, I got booked again!’ So I am really happy to still be working.
Once I was walking from The Mercer in New York – because otherwise I don’t walk anywhere – and this woman paparazzo who was following me fell over a fire hydrant and her whole tooth went through her lip. I leant over her, saying, ‘Are you all right?’ and she was still taking pictures.
I was a scapegoat. The media had to put responsibility on somebody, and I was chosen. They felt free to say that because someone was thin they were anorexic, which is ridiculous.
I am so romantic about Gypsies. They’re not allowed to do anything until they get married. So they all get married really young, at sixteen.
I would have wanted to be a rock star, a lead singer, if I wasn’t a model. I’d go touring in a bus with my band. In my next life, that’s the plan.

I am not a fashion freak!
Actors do like watching girls parade down the runway for some reason.
I can do a good roast with my eyes closed. I’m amazing with gravy. That’s my speciality; even other people ask me to do gravy at their house. I’m very proud of my gravy.
Modeling can be a bit brain damaging. Starting my own brand was what I needed to do. I only model if there are such good jobs that you don’t want to say no to. All that dressing up makes me say, ‘What do I want to wear?’ and, ‘What do I want to do with Topshop?’ It all kind of leads into the other things.
I have a dress-up chest at home. I love to create this fantasy kind of thing.
I cut up loads. I always want everything shorter, shorter, shorter.
I’m happier on the runway than I am on the red carpet. Because then I am not being myself. I think, on the red carpet, it’s a weird, like, ‘Who am I? Am I me? Am I them?’
People that don’t know me get ‘Mossed’. It means, I was gonna go home, but then I just got led astray. In the best possible way, of course. I mean, it’s always fun, and a good time.
Modeling is a job. Even my mum doesn’t believe that I do work hard.
With confidence, I think anyone can get a dress and make it their own. I don’t think you should have it off the runway and wear it like they want you to wear it. You know, with their hair and makeup – their woman. I just think it’s boring. You have to make it your own. That’s what fashion is all about.
I always take a cashmere blanket, and I have pictures of my family in my passport holder.
Going to the gym wouldn’t be on my list of favorite things to do.
I wasn’t the prettiest girl in class. No breasts, short legs, gangly teeth. I didn’t think I was model material, that’s for sure.
I have met almost everyone I’ve wanted to meet.
If I’m going to work, I put black jeans on, a T-shirt, a shirt, and a jacket.
I definitely feel more comfortable in my own skin since turning 40.
You can be a pretty face, but if you’re not a nice person, it just doesn’t work. I’m not traditionally a beauty, but apparently people think I’m all right. If you’re a nice person, it definitely helps.
I had a nervous breakdown when I was 17 or 18, when I had to go and work with Marky Mark and Herb Ritts. It didn’t feel like me at all. I felt really bad about straddling this buff guy. I didn’t like it.
It’s a sin to be tired.
When you’re shooting you go to references in your mind. You think about how you should stand in these particular clothes, or how you should move. You think about the different characters you’re playing, really.
Calvin was very clever. We did the pictures and made the commercial, and that really worked.
