"Fame is valued quite ridiculously. So then there's this idea that you're beholden in some way, and I resent that. And it comes across like I'm ungrateful or something but, actually, I just find it weird to talk to the general public as a whole. Like, you can relate to a person, you can relate to an individual, but addressing the world at large is something that just perplexes me."
She used to dress as "a total tomboy" and it was only at school that she realised it was "not the most normal thing. Not all little girls are that way. And it actually really hurt my feelings, like badly. Like, I remember being in the sixth grade [aged 11] and [people would say] 'Kristen looks like a man. You're a boy', or whatever, and I was so offended, horrified and embarrassed. Now I look back on it and I'm like, 'Girl, be proud of that!'"
"I’m so grateful I have modelling and so many other things that I’m doing – because if I didn’t have other ways of making money, I’d be like, ‘OK, I guess I’m doing the bathing-suit-girl role.’ You really have to prove yourself in this industry and I’m very much up for the challenge."
“It used to be so scary to go to the Met Ball and things like that…I’d think, ‘Oh, I’m not going to know anyone there,’ and now it’s so nice to feel like it’s a community. Like Amy Schumer, I like everything she posts, she likes everything I post, and at the Met we just gave each other a big hug; a ‘Yes, we’re here for each other.’ It’s nice to have that relationship with people.”

Hailey Baldwin talks about her spiritual and political values and taking a digital detox in the July issue of ELLE UK.
'I work my a** off to make what I have and to prove that this is what I want to do.'
She shut her Instagram account down for four weeks. 'I just needed a break. There were a lot of things happening for me personally at that time and I was kind of depressed. I totally understand when people say they need time to themselves. It made me realise that. I'll leave my phone in the car when I go to eat or I'll leave it somewhere so I'm not checking it every two seconds.'
'I'm the 'mom'. I like taking care of people, I like nurturing people…We sometimes call Kendall Jenner 'Mamma Kens' because she's very rational. She has a good head on her shoulders and she's a straight thinker…I'm kind of like an encyclopaedia. I'm a little nerdy to be honest.'

Gigi Hadid walks on the moon for Harper's Bazaar June/July issue.
In the article one of Gigi's best friend, Taylor Swift, talks about her: "Gigi's number one rule is to treat people the way she'd want to be treated. She's on time to work, says hello to everyone on the set, asks them how they are and listens to their response."

Selena Gomez on the cover of Vogue US for the first time!
On instagram she already wrote "Ok freaking out a little. Thrilled to share my first American vogue magazine cover with you!"
She opens up about having 110 million followers on Instagram, mental health and lonely tours.
"Tours are a really lonely place for me. My self-esteem was shot. I was depressed, anxious. I started to have panic attacks right before getting onstage, or right after leaving the stage."
"As soon as i became the most followed person on Instagram, i sort of freaked out."
"Look, I love what i do, and i'm aware of how lucky i am, but how can i say this without sounding weird? I just really can't wait for people to forget about me."
