A: I think I've done every crazy diet there was in the beginning, but it's weird: I'm thinner now than I was when I was modeling. I don't obsess about it. I have a really strict regimen of exercise, so I pretty much can eat what I want...but, no, I hate saying that.
A: 'Cause I'm not. No, I work out for an hour to an hour-and-a-half, five to six days a week, hardcore. I mean, my butt was up at 7:30 this morning and at [the studio of trainer] Tracy Anderson to work out at 8. They're great, they push you.
A: I still love red velvet cake. My mom FedExes a red velvet cake she makes from scratch to me every birthday. And she walked four miles a day for 25 years. She always said, you should take care of yourself, you shouldn't let yourself go. That's a very Southern thing. I can remember watching her doing Jack LaLanne on the back of a chair, for sure! The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
A: I watch my wheat intake. I drink a hot lemon water when I wake up. It cleanses your palate. And I dry brush, which is great for your circulation. Oh my God, it's amazing.
A: I should have a blog! If you want to get into a dress, watch your salt intake for three days. Don't down soy sauce and sushi. I think if more people were healthy, they'd have
a better outlook on life.
A: Probably eclectic chic. It's kind of done-undone.
A: Oh! I know a celebrity! Britney Spears. I mean, that girl is so cute. [I'd go] monochromatic. I would take away the boots, the tank tops. She's so pretty-she just needs help with dressing. She gets too many trends going at once.
A: A boyfriend jacket, a beautiful T-shirt, and great jeans. If you know me well, you'll know what mood I'm in, how good I'm feeling about myself [by how I dress].
A: I'll cover more when I'm not feeling good about myself. I like things bigger, an oversized cardigan or jacket. It's probably not the most flattering. Even though, in my mind, it makes me look thinner. [Laughs.]
A: A Diane von Furstenberg black wrap dress. It's chic, it's flattering, and you can wear it day and night. I have several that I've worn for years! It's the material. You don't have to iron it, you can take it on a trip, it looks great in a meeting.
Q: What's your take on women who've gone under the knife?
A: I'm not not a proponent of cosmetic surgery. I had braces for two-and-a-half years, and I promise you, I wouldn't be the same girl if I didn't. I would not have smiled. If somebody's nose or boobs has bothered them their entire life and affects their positive outlook, who am I to tell them not to do it? [But] I think Heidi Montag is a really sick girl, something is off. You don't get F-size boobs. And I'm not judging her. I feel sorry for her.
A: My parents. My mom's my best friend. It doesn't matter what premiere or red carpet ... at the end of the day, what I really treasure is my friends and family. My mom was sick last year, and I still want to have my first baby with her and have her help me pick out my wedding dress. Fame's not real. It's awesome, but not real. I think it's awesome when you get to travel somewhere randomly. What I think is shitty is that people are always criticizing you. I mean, God bless Jen.
A: Aniston. Like, so hard. All these critiques, always. I know her really well, she's this awesome girl, but it's just so hard. I give her credit.
A: Once you've been a model, you've had pretty much every rejection: Your shoulders are too big, your calves are too big, you're too skinny, you're too fat. Honestly, at this point, I love myself more than what anyone else thinks. I can't sit here and say, 'I don't care.' That would be a lie. But as you get older, it doesn't quite mean as much, you know?
Do you not like your arms? Are your boobs big? It depends on how you're cut. My neckline is a V, scoop, or strapless.'
on you if it's bigger.'
