In an honest review with Harper’s Bazaar, she admitted not to think of herself to be as beautiful as many view her:
“Do I think of myself as beautiful? No, absolutely not. But I make the best of what I have. I see my imperfections and flaws and I smile: it’s who I am and I’m not going to try to change that.
It’s taken me a long, long time to recognize that by 45 years old, actually I’m all right. I work hard, I look OK, I’ve got four children that I’m incredibly proud of, a wonderful husband and I feel content. When you’re growing up, you obsess over the silliest of things, but when you get older, you learn how to be comfortable in your own skin.”
It was recently reported that she was forced to make dramatic cuts following the huge loses of her fashion empire. The designer admits that she invests a lot of efforts and fights hard to keep her fashion company intact.
She said how she is not in the fashion business simply to have a job:
“I was really focusing on the brand, looking at its DNA and at my community, being true to who I am and what my strengths are. I see those as beautiful clothes, great silhouettes, strange colors that you wouldn’t typically put together, which are almost so wrong they’re right.
It’s about presenting clothes that are elevated enough for the catwalk but that people are actually going to wear; it’s never about showing fashion for the sake of showing fashion. I don’t want to wear things that are complicated. I’m always developing what I want in my wardrobe and I think it’s important that evolves, so you don’t get stuck in a rut, shall we say.”
