answering vogue’s 73 unexpected questions

Welcome to All in the Detail... I am so glad you are here!

You know how Vogue asks celebs to answer 73 questions? Well, I love reading easy, quick Q&As like that, especially when it involves a celebrity. I feel like it reveals so much about a person, because it seems to be void of deep thought and PR preparation.
