The pop star explains the evolution of her style, her no-airbrushing policy and the ensemble she wore to New York fashion week last year
I’ve never loved my body more than I did in this outfit – I looked banging. It’s by Christian Siriano and I wore it to his show in New York last year – the first fashion show I’d been to. I loved that there were all different kinds of women and men on the catwalk, so many shapes and sizes. I’d also never worn pants with a cape before, so I felt like a superhero. And I didn’t have to wear a bra – win win win win win.
This look is way more “me” than the outfits I wore in the All About That Bass video. I said at the time that I mostly wear black, but they said: “Cool, we’re going to do pastels.” I had no management then, so I was like: “OK, but it’s just like a costume, right?” It wasn’t super-clear, so that was a little frustrating. This look is an example of how I now have a say and know who I am.
