    • Kate: (revealing why she leaves the car door open when refuelling her car) My daughter Lila loves the smell of gasoline – she always says, "Mummy, keep the door open," when I'm filling up the car. I've heard it is one of the most preferred scents in the world – maybe that's something to study for my next fragrance!

    • Kate: I was never anorexic, so I was never that skinny. I was never boney-boney. But I remember thinking, "I don't want to be this skinny." I didn't eat for a long time. Not on purpose. You'd be on shoots with bad food or get on a plane, and the food would be so disgusting you couldn't eat it. You go to a show, and there's no food at all, so if you're doing shows back to back, you can forget eating. I remember standing up in the bath one day, and there was a mirror in front of me, and I was so thin! I hated it. I never liked being that skinny.

    • Kate: (on being self-conscious about being flat-chested) I was like, 'Oh no, I don't want to be different. I want to have big t*ts. I want to look like Cindy Crawford.' (Corinne Day) would make me take off my top, and I would cry. After five years of taking off your top you get used to it, and you're not self-conscious anymore. You're not conscious about your flaws - bow-legged, crooked teeth.

    • Kate: (on when Frank Sinatra kissed her) He kissed me on the lips, and then he gave me a filterless cigarette. I came over all light headed and had to sit on his dressing room steps. Maybe it was the cigarette and nothing to do with the legend.

    • Kate: (on branching out to design fashion for UK chain Topshop ) Modeling can be a bit brain damaging. Starting my own brand was what I needed to do. I only model if there are such good jobs that you don't want to say no to. All that dressing up makes me say, "What do I want to wear?" and, "What do I want to do with Topshop?" It all kind of leads into the other things.
