It’s that time of the year again, when we all cry a little bit inside, looking at the bevvy of beauties that make up the Victoria’s Secret ‘Angels’, flaunting fab figures in the skimpiest of outfits. But don’t despair, we’re not alone in our feelings. The utterly fabulous and gorgeous Rihanna, who performed at this year’s show, has admitted she can’t help but feel intimidated by the models.
The Diamonds singer was performing at the annual lingerie show in New York and said it was hard being surrounded by so many beautiful women. “There’s so many sassy girls out there, it’s super intimidating,” she said.
But the Bajan beauty had some tricks to try and fit in with the models, saying: “I’m just trying to work extra hip, stick out extra stomach, arch extra back.”
And the angels themselves have some tips for making the best of your assets and feeling beautiful. In a previous interview with Harper’s Bazaar, one of the longest standing angels, Miranda Kerr said: “I believe in celebrating the female figure and embracing what we’ve been given, not hiding that”.
Kerr, 29, reportedly told the magazine. “I live by the philosophy that beauty starts from within and I make a conscious effort to fill my body with nutrients through the food I eat,” Kerrr, a mum and wife to actor Orlando Bloom, said “Becoming a mother has made me even more aware and more passionate about nutrition and wellness, so much so that I am now a certified health coach practitioner.” Kerr reportedly works out daily with yoga, resistance exercises, and high-impact workouts such as running or boxing. “I make sure I do half an hour of yoga in the morning so that then I’m feeling good,” she has said, according to the Daily Mail.
“I have been working out quite a bit doing Pilates and yoga and strength training with weights and resistant bands and I eat super healthy.” “I love food and enjoy eating fresh organic produce,” Kerr told Harper’s Bazaar. “I drink warm water and lemon every morning and I also drink lots of good quality purified and preferably alkaline water throughout the day.” She is also known for maintaining a strict diet of fish, fresh food and steamed vegetables and consuming coconut oil to maintain flawless skin. Meanwhile, fellow Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima also reportedly stays in top form with twice daily workouts and liquid diets of protein shakes before runway show.
Not sure about you lot, but that’s me reaching for the coconut oil!
