She told to Vogue Italia –
“I have a personal trainer, I go to the gym twice a week. And I sleep a lot, above all before fashion weeks.”
“It really annoys me that people think every model has an eating disorder, and every model is dumb. Most of the girls are naturally skinny, like me. I don’t have to watch what I eat. I love eating! Especially ice-cream and salty snacks.”
“I love buying random things. I can’t even walk into a place without leaving with something I definitely won’t need.”
“I played the piano when I was young, but after a while I became bored playing all those classical pieces. Now I’m quite good and I pick out some songs that I hear on the radio, and I find it a marvelous concentration exercise.”
