“As much as viewers like to see the eventual winners of these shows realise their dream (at least momentarily), they love to see the losers: the untalented, the girls who lock themselves in the bathroom and cry, the ones whose hopes are wrecked. Because to see regular people fail is to feel, “My life sucks, but it doesn’t suck as bad as that guy/girl’s life sucks right now.””

Quote of the day




“Even before I started the brand, I knocked on Versace’s door. I called him up and was like, ‘I’m in Italy, can I show up for a meeting?’ And they were like, ‘Um who are you? No we don’t work like that,’ and I said, Well I just went to Prada and I’m here,’ and eventually they were like, ‘Okay come’ and actually Brian Atwood was the accessories designer for Versace at the time, so I sat down with Brian Atwood. He was actually very nice and I showed my stuff to him and he was really impressed and they were all really supportive of what I did. You make ballsy moves all the time, but in the beginning, when there’s nothing, you really have to put your foot in the door.”
