I make myself lie down every afternoon; otherwise I'll be too exhausted by the night-time. If I can't nap, I'll watch a little bit of TV and just relax for two or three hours.
If there's one thing I could attribute my strength to, I would say it's the gift of laughter, which I inherited from my mother's side.
I am China, pronounced as Chee-na. And I think it's time the world lets older women age gracefully.
I have no nationality, no country.
I have always done things that made me happy. I work with people I like, and I do the job I like. I only see people who I like to be with. I have led a wonderful life.
I have some regrets that I might have hurt men in my life. But they can take care of themselves.
I wonder if it is harder for a woman who was beautiful to get older or a woman who was never looked at.
I would never become a big, big model in the commercial sense because I was such a type; you couldn't use me in everything.
I'm not an outdoor girl. I can barely swim. I don't ride a horse.
You can't worry about ageing because that's the worst thing. If you start, then you just keep finding more things you don't like, and then you're finished. There are a lot of things I could have done to my face, but it would never stop.
A model needs to know how to project herself into the camera.
When Dick Avedon died, I was so upset that I just started painting.
When you look at the runway now, the girls are 15 and 16 years old with no knowledge of clothes, no idea how to project themselves. I was trained how to show off the dress, how to move to make the clothes look better.
Age is not a taboo in the fashion industry. One should learn what to wear to look good at any age.
I cook the food of Macau, my roots and soul food.
