Scarlett says: “I feel like I’ve been transitioning from young woman into womanhood for a very long time.

Now as I approach 30, with the last few years behind me, I feel like growing pains are behind me. It’s just nice to feel happy.”

“I think any woman who is curvy and wears a gown to an event is, like, super-sexualised. I mean, at the time I was 18, 19. I was young.

“I’ve always been curvy. It runs in the family. Throw on an evening frock and it’s like all of a sudden you have boobs and everyone is like: ‘bombshell!”

“Instantly it was: ‘The new Marilyn’.”

“I got married when I was young and it was incredibly romantic and I liked being married, actually. But it is different. It’s hard to put into words.”

“To me, being in a functioning relationship doesn’t mean you have to be married. “

“For me, most importantly, I look for a partner who is creative”

“ I like people that have a colourful way of looking at things, that are inspiring and like art, music and film.”
