Eva Chen of Teen Vogue tagged along as Michael Kors helped Nikki Reed choose a dream dress for Teen Vogue’s Young Hollywood party. Here is some of what they chatted about while browsing through the Michael Kors store on New York City’s Madison Avenue.
Michael Kors: I’m so excited to be dressing you because if there’s one thing I love, it’s a girl who has a real body–I love curves–and one with a healthy glow.
Nikki Reed: Lucky for you, I have plenty of both! For a long time, I fought my natural gifts. But now that I’m in my 20s, I understand that it really is about loving your body and working with what you have. I don’t need to look like a runway model.
Michael Kors: It’s true. I think of models as genetic aberrations.
Nikki Reed: Totally! And 99 percent of guys don’t want to date that, you know? They’d rather have a real girl, someone with a body. Actually, the turning point for me in my body acceptance was when I quit smoking when I turned 21. I started doing a lot more sports then. That was a big step for me in loving myself and getting over the stick-figure body-envy nonsense–and it was because I felt stronger.
(Congratulations on quitting smoking Nikki! I knew she planned to do it – so it’s nice to see that she went through. She looks gorgeous and glowing! Check out the behind the scenes video, below).
