My queen is slowly taking over China’s heart. Since she visiting the country last month she can now be seen on the August cover of Vogue China sporting a smokey eye, nude lip and clad in a Nina Ricci Fall 2013 and Tiffany & Co. silver hooped earrings.
In the accompanying article the fashion icon spills on her fashion empire, juggling family life and her appreciation for her Chinese fans:
On juggling work and motherhood:
“When you are successful the hardest thing is maintaining that level of success, so you work harder to maintain what you have achieved. It’s a huge juggling act, when you are a working mother and looking after your family, millions and millions of women around the world are doing this every day. But it’s not easy and yes, you feel guilty every time you walk out of the door to go to work.”
On seeing women wearing her dresses:
“I have been in the limelight for over 20 years. I am not on an ego trip, empowering women and making them feel sexy and great when they wear my clothes means more than thousands of people clapping. Empowering women is what makes me feel good.”
On Chinese women and her Chinese fans:
“I love China. The women really understand fashion and I can honestly say the women who come to my events are some of the most beautiful women I have ever seen. They have remarkable bodies and are happy and positive and I love that. I think they know what looks good, how to accessorise and have beautiful hair and flawless skin. When I come to China I get given many little gifts and notes from the fans and that genuinely means a lot to me.”
