On how long it takes her to get ready:
“Going to pilates, going to the grocery store, seeing friends — I’ll usually spend about 20 minutes getting ready. Then, I have my, like, 70 percent ‘power glamour look’ for meetings or if I think I might get photographed: That’s something I might spend 45 minutes on. And for my full red carpet look, I spend 1 1/2 hours.”
On how beautiful Kim Kardashian is and how everyone is jealous:
“I’m crazy about Kim. I think she’s lovely. Every time I see her and talk to her, I think, ‘Wow, she’s really beautiful.’ I think anybody who throws the Kardashians shade is just jealous.”

On corset training for a tiny waist:
I think it’s funny because I’m watching [the trend] and it’s like the blind leading the blind… People that actually know a lot about corsetry are not the ones that are publicly speaking about it. And I’m seeing some of these corsets that they’re saying are waist shapers and I’m like, ‘That doesn’t work.’ They’re like stretchy fabric. If you really want to get into it, you should probably look into the real corset makers that have been doing it for decades and decades. There are lots of experts on it, but I don’t know that you should be jumping on the bandwagon to sing the praises of corsets….It seems to be a fast fix, and it is. If you put on a corset and you pull the strings tight, you instantly have this silhouette and it’s great — but it’s not going to modify your body if you’re not engaged in the serious regimen of it.

On her idea of beauty:
I’ve never been interested in natural beauty. There’s an art in portraying the person you want to be, and everybody should have the right to decide who they want to be. Sexy is when people are comfortable in their own skin, and confident, and you can tell that they’re doing things on their own terms. Their pleasure is something they’re doing for themselves instead of trying to get appreciation from other people. They’re not looking for validation. All of those kinds of, “What will he like?” – it’s a fail. A fail in the art of seduction. The art of seduction is really about cultivating so many different elements of sensuality, but realizing that it has to start with you.

On her insecurities:
‘Just like everyone else, I am not always confident, I have all the same self-doubt. I just try to love myself and accept things that I don’t like about myself and I think it’s something important for all women to know that we all have those feelings. Everyone has something about them that they wish they could change, everyone I know anyways, and it’s about learning to love those things too.’

On her passion for lingerie:
I’ve been collecting vintage lingerie for 25 years – my collection is pretty huge now. I’ve always been fascinated by it, I used to sift through my mother’s underwear drawer when I was young. I loved the idea of something that was feminine and functional.”
