As glamorous as you make it.

Are there any backstage secrets you’re willing to dish?

Lots of nakedness … Use your imagination.

How do you calm your nerves before you strut down the runway?

I am more excited than nervous before the show begins… so I guess my energy buzz guides my strut.

If you could strut your stuff to any music you wanted, what would be on the playlist?

There is nothing in particular that I do… I eat when I’m hungry and I stay active.
