Vanessa Williams: Gregg DeGuire/WireImage.com

What would you get your character Wilhelmina?
Something I like, because she’d just regift it to me.

What would she get you?
Whatever it is, like I said, it’s regifted.

What would Wilhelmina get Betty for the holidays?
A pink slip.

If the Mode office were to have a gift exchange, who would Wilhelmina hope to get?
Herself. Because she’s the only one who knows her true size.

And if she didn’t, who would Wilhelmina want to get her a gift?
Marc [her assistant]. Because he knows to go over the $5 limit.
