Miranda Kerr & her puppy Teddy
"I always had this idea modelling is such a short-lived job, so to do it while I can and save the money while I can. Ironically, I have been doing it for 20 years, and I have been working super hard and have been really dedicated to my job. And I have enjoyed it, but now my priorities have shifted. I want to be there for Flynn and my other baby, Kora, which is my passion."
"Sometimes you want to retreat inwards and not be so outward. That's where I'm at, this point in life. I just want to be in the moment with my family."

"My whole world is my kids, it's all I care about ... from literally every last thing that they do to what they wear, to all their activities. I love being their mom. I definitely don't hang out with my friends as much just because I have to be with my kids."
"It's been such a fun journey to figure out how our kids like to dress and how to make cool clothes for kids."
"We've always been tailoring things and cutting things up, or taking dresses of mine and cutting them down to North's sire."
"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."
