He told the Telegraph: "Have you noticed how much make-up girls are wearing these days? It's because it's cheaper than buying clothes. I love beauty products. At Gucci I'd spend days working with a make-up artist getting the show to look right. I was never drawn to walking in women's shoes that's maybe why some of them hurt. I never had a desire to wear the clothes. I'm probably the only man in England who doesn't want to dress in drag. But make-up? That I'm serious about." [Telegraph UK]
