Being the muse of the photographer is what I like about this profession.
If you're a mother, it's all about it. Then model. Then actress.
Getting older is a gift because you rest in yourself. Perhaps this is actually more beautiful.
I had long cooperations with Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood and many more. If I only emphasized one, I would do the other wrong. But it is no secret that Karl Lagerfeld discovered me early. I learned to appreciate him not only as a fashion designer and photographer, but also as a great person.
