Teen Vogue fashion market editor Mary-Kate Steinmiller: “I’ve always said that in this industry you have to accept that there is always, always going to be someone ahead of you on the masthead, prettier, better dressed, skinnier, with more money, more respected, invited to more parties and smarter than you. So really you just have to do you and do you the best you can.” [Fashionista]
