When did you first meet Jeremy?
I did my first ever fashion show in Paris with Jeremy! It was the Rich White Women collection and I was opening the show. I remember the nerves like it was yesterday. It was the first time I had ever opened a show and I was to wear these wild stilettos that attached directly to the heel of my foot.  I remember backstage before the show teeter tottering on these things with Jeremy gently nudging me on. Then in a divine moment, I learned how to walk in the shoes moments before I hit the runway. I have always felt at complete ease with Jeremy. I am in awe, in love and entirely blessed to be his friend.  
What’s the best thing about Jeremy? 
He radiates this incredible energy and enthusiasm and has never changed as long as I have known him.  He is the life of the party, the most fun, the most comical, the greatest partner in crime but he is also an incredibly graceful, gentle, thoughtful person who is a most reliable friend in times of need.  
What’s the worst thing about Jeremy?  
I don't know of one bad trait.  
What’s your favourite piece of Jeremy Scott that you own?   
My kids are wearing his shoes these days, and making headlines in them! We have them all - the pandas, the american flags, the teddy bears and the blue denim. I have recently got myself a pair of the stiletto sneakers which I am very excited about.
What’s the future of fashion?
I think streetwear will continue to influence the runways and fashion magazines. I think Jeremy is pushing the future of fashion; the loud prints and colors, the general sexiness of his designs, the pop culture/youth culture references, is an expressive, fun and fresh way to see and be seen. Rihanna, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, have all been inspired by him and they are also the fashion icons of the next generation.  
Who are your future fashion stars?  
I think Jeremy will continue to be inspiring and influencial and do incredible things with Moschino, I am so excited for the next chapter in Jeremy Scott's fashion takeover. I think Humberto and Carol from Opening Ceremony and now Kenzo are a force to be reckoned with and I think newer labels like the Libertine, Preen, Corto Moltedo, Giles and Tabitha Simmons are absolutely going to influence us all a lot going forward.  Right now the freedom to innovate as well as materials and technology makes it an exciting time in fashion.

I first meet Jeremy when I was 19 at Karl Lagerfeld's studio 7L in Paris when he and I were both there working on photo shoots with Mr lagerfeld.
What’s the best thing about Jeremy?
That he is Jeremy - he doesn't pretend be anyone else - he's genuine!
What’s the worst thing about Jeremy?
Honestly, I would have to say that its that he's too busy traveling for work and I don't get to see him enough any more! He is a ray of light, a postive, passionate, insanely talented soul.
What’s your favorite piece of Jeremy Scott that you own?
He made me a dress for my birthday party which was the cutest little black dress ever and it had jolly ranger sized jewels spread out across it in beautiful shades of red, blue, purple and yellow - I danced all night in that dress! My daughter can't wait till she's tall enough to fit into it!
What’s the future of fashion?
Ordering the clothes off the runway online as the shows are live streamed, and having them delivered next day! Fast Fashion!
Who are your future fashion stars?
My daughter Skyla, she loves playing dress up and creating characters with clothes - she's the future!
