If you don’t think angels are sexy then you’re looking at the wrong ones. Allure magazine chatted to a few of the Victoria’s Secret Angels on how they motivate themselves.
With the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airing in the States at the end of November, the models are amping up their workouts and guzzling pressed juices (seriously, they told us). With all this dedication in the air, we decided to round up their best motivational advice – for whether you’re preparing for 10 million people to see you in your bra and panties, or maybe just one.
How to prepare for a date
Prior to special nights out with her husband, Doutzen Kroes focuses on having silky smooth skin. ‘I like to do a scrub. If I’m on the beach, I’ll put olive oil on my body and then put on sand, and then go into the ocean,’ she says. ‘But if I don’t have the beach by me, I have a great Lolita scrub.’
How to prepare for a holiday
Miranda Kerr always packs a brush in her carry-on, but not for her hair. ‘I keep a body brush with me when traveling. Dry body brushing every morning is a great way to get the circulation going, get rid of dead skin cells, aid in lymphatic drainage, and keep your skin smooth all over,’ she says.
How to prepare for your wedding
You should always play up your best feature on your wedding day, which is why Lily Aldridge kept the spotlight on her hair. ‘Don’t get it cut the day before or the day of your wedding. Get it cut a week before. And get your colour a week before,’ she says. ‘You have to plan these things so the day of your wedding you don’t have orange hair or a bob.’
How to prepare to show some skin
When all eyes are on her décolletage, Alessandra Ambrosio (who models the $3.5 million Fantasy Bra) makes sure her skin is ready. ‘Whatever I put on my face, I’ll put it right here on my body,’ says Ambrosio, motioning to the area between her breasts and her chin. ‘Every time I shower, I have to put on moisturiser or oil.’
How to prepare for the show
After getting a hair mask and a facial, Candice Swanepoel gives all the attention over to her abs. ‘I work out like a maniac. I’ll box in the morning and then I’ll do Pilates at night. I also do a lot with resistance bands,’ she says.
