To me being attractive is about glowing; being happy from within because you are free to be yourself. On the runway I put on many faces and wear fashions that are as far from my personality as you can get, but I try to put a little bit of myself in my walk and in my attitude so that I not only sell the collection, but also sell myself as a confident and attractive Man.
