Not wearing make-up? I can do it, and don't think twice.

Some suggestions for you :

I was embarrassed when a businessman friend asked, 'What's the yearly budget of your talk show? What's the per-episode budget?' And I looked at him with these blank, typical-model eyes and said, 'I don't know.' I call myself a businesswoman, and I don't know that?

Let's have fun at work.

I'm not sure exactly how gossiping about my life with my audience really helps them.

Dab - don't rub - cream formulas onto your skin. Rubbing washes out the color, so do that only if you've put on too much.

With 'America's Next Top Model,' I've always cast girls who the industry might call 'plus size' but I like to call 'fiercely real.' That was always important to me.

I think I'm too young to be a mogul. I think I'm too young for that.

I don't wake up with naturally sculpted cheekbones - I paint them on!

There's no excuse for rudeness.

I have a poverty demon. I'll ask my accountant if I can afford something, and he'll say, 'What are you talking about?'

I've helped some of my classmates on how to strategize to get to the next level of their businesses. And it's interesting, because here I am sitting there from the entertainment industry and the fashion industry, and I'm giving a billionaire that has a business that's been in his family for 300 years - I'm giving him advice about strategy!

I don't like expensive things... I just can't help looking in a magazine for the splurge and the save.

The creation of my cosmetics experience has been years in the making.

Never dull your shine for somebody else.

'America's Next Top Model' is not a bunch of Barbies - it's a lot of girls that are atypically beautiful.
