MEMORABLE MOMENT: My most memorable moment from this season was

also my first job ever. It was when I opened Prada in Milan as an exclusive.

Nobody had explained to me what it would be like the day of the show.

Backstage was full of photographers. They were circling around me, and I had

to do interviews before the show. There was a television backstage and you

could see people as they arrived around the swimming pool. It was a little

stressful, but at the same time it was very cool and exciting. The moment that

was my favorite was when I started to walk. The music was quiet at that

moment, and I had to walk with no music. It was six hours of prep coming

together in two minutes.
