Some suggestions for you :

Because beauty will be so readily accessible, and skin color and features will be similar, prejudices based on physical features will be nearly eradicated. Prejudice will be socioeconomically based.

I have a long list of different smiles that you can do, and every model should be equipped. Everybody can't handle the long list... That's for, you know, advanced.

I think of dystopian as 'Mad Max,' as 'Book of Eli,' as the world is ending.

Whenever someone says I'm the next Oprah, I always respond, 'Child, there's only one Mahogany, and only one Oprah.' There are no others.

When I went to Paris after graduating high school, I saw a model who was 12 years old without any supervision. That wouldn't happen in the acting world.

Sometimes I'll use four or five different photo apps on one photo just to get it where I want it to be.

I've made mistakes before of doing different projects just based on my dreams, my hopes, my thing, and not really thinking about my customers.

In high school I definitely had a clique of friends. And what I loved about it was that we were healthy and good girls.

I used to say in interviews that I don't necessarily want to be the first black woman or first model to do certain things; I just want to see it done.

I wanted to be a film and television writer and producer.

I have scars on the backs of my arms from dressers in Paris scraping me with pins as I was taking a shirt or gown off.

I gave myself a year to be a supermodel. And I said, 'If it doesn't happen, I'm going back to school.'

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

I used to want to write commercials as a kid.
