Daisy

A quote from a two-week old episode of Britain's Next Top Model:

"If you were sitting in a restaurant and somebody took exception and said 'Please would you remove that hat, what would you say to them?"

Daisy (wearing a metre wide black spiky Louis Mariette creation): "Please remove yourself!"



Aside from L-O-V-ing Daisy so far this series (though my favourite has to be Jade purely for pulling off those glasses) I think this quote is so uplifting and fantastic. It's so easy to start to think you should feel bad for wearing something that doesn't fit in with the standard style of dress. I'm glad there are people standing in an admittedly ridiculous but utterly fabulous outfit saying "Yes, I'm wearing this and if you don't like it then you have to look at something you don't like". Refusing to change and kowtow to what's expected is so boring - let's have more Daisys as role models on TV who know that they can wear what they choose and not be made to feel bad because of it.
