On her penchant for fashion:
"Fashion is part of the job. It?s fun to go out and see what everybody?s wearing. Some things really work, and some don?t. And then there are some people, like Kate Moss, who can wear anything."
On juggling work and family life:
?It?s not perfect. I?m constantly feeling I should be spending more time at home. I installed a kids? corner in the office, and the baby is really easy right now. But every day is evolving and changing. If I?m not going to be home all day, I know I?ll be home at night.?
On her evolving style preferences:
?I didn?t use to wear a lot of color. I guess I?ve been more adventurous with my style and clothes choices since I?ve become a mother. It doesn?t feel as heavy or as big a deal. Before, I was incredibly bashful and shy. When I was younger, I was really uncomfortable in dresses and high heels or anything like that. Over the years, I?ve embraced a more feminine side.?
On changing after becoming a parent:
?I feel like I?ve finally come into my own and become the person I always should have been, or that I always wanted to be. I feel more grounded, free and comfortable in my own skin than I ever have. The paradigm just shifted completely to my family.?
