"I like curves. When I draw, I'm really someone who comes from the world of curves. That's why I love heels, but I love all shoes, including flat shoes.

"As soon as you put on heels, it changes your posture, it changes your shape, the design of your body, and gives you a certain awareness of your body. That's why I love heels," he adds.
