I probably went to 25-30 countries with them, just me and a photographer. We used to take a bunch of clothes and cast people all around the world. I was style editor at large. Very at large. I did that for 11 years, because I was free. I’m still free—now I’m just putting a bit more emphasis on the clothes.”
