If you got to relive one day in your modeling career it would be…: When Hugo Boss flew in tons of people to Florence for a runway show.

How much money would you need to shave your hair off? I shaved it off once already for the military so I would know what to expect. The only thing that would make me do it again is if it was for a good cause.
