A snippet from an interview, asked why she choose Girard-Perregaux and about her feelings towards the brand:
    "Two things, one, the power to collaborate with a brand as Girard-Perregaux that combines tradition, design, I am fanatical of the clocks, always have said it. And that is united to the project of a boat, BMW Oracle Racing of Valencia, America´s Cup, everything are a set of things that I like, that are interesting to me, that I am enchanted of being an image. Mainly because it is united tradition, clocks and sports, and Spain and Valencia. Somehow, everything was an interesting project, very tempting."
