candidness, a hint of self-deprecation seeping through. "I'm lucky because what was essentially my hobby became my job. Some people have their jobs but have other hobbies like fishing, therefore the magazines they read on the toilet are fishing magazines. The magazines I read on the toilet...

Which isn't to say she avoids the runway; quite the contrary, appearances at Saint Laurent, Tom Ford, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, and Chanel prove she's got the mettle for it. But her face is so insouciant, so tomboyish, so cheeky that it screams for a closer, longer look. Not that anyone in...
