Get fit this holiday season with the tips from Victoria's Secret Runway models.
Before they strut their stuff down the catwalk for national television, the "angels" amped up their cardio this year and even cut out carbs this year. Shame on you for thinking they were just born like that!
This year's broadcast will feature newbies Marisa Miller, Doutzen Kroes and Miranda Kerr alongside Secret alumns Heidi Klum, Karolina Kurkova, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio and Selita Ebanks. Last month the newest threesome went to Miami for the new runway show that airs on CBS December 3rd, 2008.
"I love feeling so sexy and I love to be on this runway, but you're nervous because it's lingerie and it's on TV," Kroes told the AP. "There are so many people seeing you live, it's not like a picture when there is Photoshop after." But we know all about the reassurance of Photoshop so we feel your pain hunny.
Kroes, a 23-year-old from from the Netherlands, claims she normally eats what she wants because she exercises frequently, but went on a strict sugar- and carb-free meal plan for the upcoming show. She adds that she also spends many extra minutes a day jumping rope in preparation. "For other fashion shows you can be skinny, but for Victoria's Secret, you need definition," says Kroes, 23.
A California native, Miller (who is a shocking 30 years old!) stays relaxed and tries not to psyche herself out too much.
"I'm a little shy and unassuming, which might be hard to believe with my job, so I don't have to quite become another person out there but I have to think about letting it all go. My last outfit was a black velvet one-piece with pink feathers on the back. I had to show the camera my tailfeathers so I did give a little spin," she says. "When you're on the runway, you're moving so it's all about toning up."
And just how do the ladies feel about being half naked in front of their family as well as millions of viewers at home?
"My mom didn't mind seeing me up there in my underwear ," Kerr says. "I am 25 and it's all very lovely and like a costume. It's beautiful and romantic ... it's not like standing up there in my everyday underwear. It's a theatrical show and everyone is there to have a good time."
