With red eyes, she apologized to the people who were disappointed in her, saying she did her best even cutting herself and bleeding in her stockings while preparing to walk the runway. She continues saying,  “I know I did my best. I kept fighting,” while describing her lack of time to retouch her look because she was scrambling for pins to wear the costume perfectly.
