Her favorite travel destinations

I need to experience that!’ It wasn’t the exact same but it is really, really beautiful and picturesque.
Her personal highlights from her career so far
There are so many different moments! Obviously my first Gucci show with Tom Ford, my first shoot with Miesel, American Vogue cover, French Vogue cover, Estêe Lauder, L’oréal. Big milestones! And now again a French Vogue cover.
