MIRANDA KERR REVEALS WHAT IT'S REALLY LIKE TO BE A VICTORIA'S SECRET MODEL
 
How do you keep your body in amazing shape?
I love to switch up workouts to keep it interesting. I love doing Pilates and Yoga but I always love to learn something new as well. The most important thing for staying in shape is having fun with your workouts.

In terms of diet, what’s the secret formula for a Victoria’s Secret body?
For me, I like to focus on nutrition. I make sure the foods I eat will benefit the appearance of my hair, skin and nails. It’s all about feeling healthy.

Do you spend much time with the other Victoria’s Secret models?
Yes! It’s the best part about working – I get to hang out with my best friends. It’s like being part of a family.

Did the other Victoria’s Secret models share any tips with you when you started?
When I first started I learned by watching. I would observe how Adriana moved on set and also studied magazines.

How do you prepare for a Victoria’s Secret show?
I actually got my preparation tactic from Lily Aldridge! She taught me to really ease into a more intense workout routine. I start stepping up my workout routine three months before and slightly adjust as the show gets closer.

Tell us your morning beauty regime?
I really love to soak in a bath and then turn on the shower to wash my hair. There is just something about starting your day with something luxurious like a bath. I also wash my face with my Clarisonic Mia 2.

What are your top three beauty products?
I love my Clarisonice Mia 2, VS Makeup Lip Liner in Blushing Nude and Supersmile toothpaste.

How do you keep your hair in top condition and what are your favourite hair products?
I use Salon Ishi products – they're made in Japan.

Have you started to worry about ageing?
I don’t worry about ageing at the moment but I have started to wear SPF daily to protect my skin.

What’s your favourite fragrance?
My favourite right now is Victoria's Secret Dream Angels Kiss fragrance. I love it because it has notes of mint leaf.

What do you think of when you’re walking down the catwalk?
That is probably the only time I don’t think!

What are your top three style staples that you couldn’t live without?
Nude booties, a black leather jacket and a great pair of jeans – my favourite pair is from Mother Denim.

What’s the latest song you’ve downloaded for your iPod?
I just downloaded Blur’s Think Tank album.

What’s your favourite beauty look?
My favourite beauty look is definitely ‘70s beauty – sunkissed skin, wavy hair and defined eyes.

 The new Dream Angels Heavenly fragrance is available from Victoria’s Secret stores and Victoriassecret.com.
