Brad seems to think that it is a requirement.

Well yeah, but Brad actually really enjoys it. He truly enjoys it. He really does love it and if I thought that he didn't, I wouldn't ask him to come.

Well, you mention that Brad likes the spotlight. Does that ever bother you?

No, I mean I think that he's excited about the business, and he hasn't been in it very long, and so it's still somewhat new to him. He feeds off that energy. He loves the after-work activities. He loves going to events, he loves going to fashion shows. He enjoys it, and for as much as he enjoys it, Taylor doesn't.

During the Marie Claire photo shoot, you admit that you're a poor model.

Horrible. Never want to see a picture of myself.

How do you think it went? Were you happy with how it turned out?

I was happy - as happy as I can be with a shoot of myself. It's not easy for me. I think when you spend years on the other side of the camera, that's where your comfort zone is.

And Brad "styled you," but he admitted that he wasn't really involved in any final decisions.

Well, I think it's no secret that I'm a bit of a control freak. It's of those things where I want to relinquish control and say, "OK, I don't want to make any decisions, tell me what to do." But at the end of the day it's hard. I completely understand why being styled is so difficult. It's a tough thing. It's a little bit like a hairstylist letting someone cut their hair, or a chef eating someone else's food. It's a little tricky.
