Like no, don't look, I think everyone needs at least one secret, this is the third time I walk and this time I feel a little better, but I remember before I did my first show, I was like I'm not doing shows, I said .

I'm not a size zero. I'm about a US size eight and like people say, oh wow, we don't have a label for that, people say, okay, it's a plus size. I guess I remember the first time I got a hate comment that really hit home. For me, you know I had a hard time dealing with it, but you know with the help of my family, especially my mom and my best friends, I started to change my approach from "it's okay, there's something wrong with me" and " There is nothing wrong with me." the people who said it, but I don't think that someone who feels good about themselves would try to tear another person down, so once I realized that, I realized that it was okay, I can move forward knowing that if I believe that I am beautiful. so you know what's stopping me from doing something, so I have to go to Simone's show.
Now I'm a little late, so here we go, I think because the last time I had such a pleasant experience walking to the show I feel very calm. I know I will get there and that everyone will take care of me. I'm going to work with people that I really admire and enjoy working with, so I feel very calm and excited that today's show will be in Alexandra. Palace and yesterday when I was getting tested I was talking to someone who said the British call it Ally Pally so we're going to use that, that looks official, it's crazy, I'm so happy you're on the show, so I have to whisper.
Right now because someone is being interviewed there, I'm not working right now. I'm doing a photo shoot there. Well I just finished filming the campaign so now I'm going to change and then I'm going to go do my hair and makeup so the collection was originally inspired by the Irish band boys who traditionally hunted the ran bird in st. Stephen's Day, they're almost like trick-or-treating, so they're a little bit creepy, a little bit rebellious, and a little bit punk. I thought that even though you're not Irish, you have such a beautiful natural Irish color that it had to be part of a collection.
I just think you are such an inspiring beauty. Thank you. Okay, you have to go put on your makeup. Bye bye. Thank you very much. Pay. Oh I'm a bird, hello bone, she said I have a feather, yeah, so come on. I have all these Irish bird feathers. They wear body paint in the middle of their foreheads. It's heavy, very pretty. Now I have to hurry up and go to rehearsal, which is basically where I put on my shoes and then I like to practice looping on the

runway

. Charice knows, okay, so we're really coming in at the last minute, you know, 20 minutes before the show, so everyone has to do their finishing touches.
Beautiful, perfect, okay, we have to hurry really hard because there are 10 minutes left until the show. Tessie, look at this here. Do we prefer to be here? Let's get to the first looks. That is, we are getting ready to hit the track and I am very excited. Thank you all for following me all day. It's been a lot of fun, but now I have to catch my Eurostar. back to paris
