How Do I Look Like A Victoria's Secret Model?
- 02 Mar 2022
If you've ever seen the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, you'll know how beautiful and confident the models are. Wanna be like them? Just follow the steps below!
1. Exercising Like An Angel
Workout at least three to five times a week. It's clear that no one (even genetically gifted Angels) can look like a Victoria's Secret model without hard work and intense practice. These girls are not just skinny – they are healthy, fit and toned. You have to put in the time and effort if you want to be like them. It can be tough but the end results will be worth it.
During most of the year, Victoria's Secret models will exercise three to five times per week for one to two hours per week. They usually try to vary their workout sessions by alternating between cardio, muscle toning and strengthening exercises.
However, running up to the VS Fashion Show, the Angels upped their game to look their best. For the two weeks before the show, they would typically workout for two hours per day, six times a week, under the supervision of a personal trainer.
2. Do Cardio.
Cardio is essential if you want to look like a Victoria's Secret model. Cardio gives your body a complete workout, helping you shed extra pounds and increase your fitness level.
Choose cardio exercise based on your personal preference - if you find a type of exercise that you enjoy, you'll be more willing to stick to it.
Some good options include running (outside or on a treadmill), bicycling (spinning classes are fantastic!) and swimming - basically anything that gets your heart rate up! Before the show they wish to walk to work their butts!
3. Do Body Sculpting Exercises.
It's important to remember that losing weight isn't enough –
you'll also need that body to look toned and firm! The best way to do this (as the Angels know it) is through the practice of carving the body.
Angels especially love Ballet Beautiful-
a fitness class inspired by ballet moves that help build stronger, sleeker muscles, improve posture, and increase flexibility. Lily Aldridge, in particular, is a fan: "This is my go-to."
High-intensity kickboxing is another favorite, as it provides a cardio workout along with toning the legs and butt. Candice Swanepoel swore by it. The jump-rope is another favorite form of workout.
Girls are also fans of yoga and Pilates, which help lengthen and strengthen muscles. Strength is important though - heavy muscles are a no-no. You want your body to look as lean and feminine as possible.
4. Focus On Your Abs, Legs And Butt.
When your day job involves walking around in skimpy underwear, it's essential to have lean legs, a strong butt, and a tight stomach. So if you want to look like a Victoria's Secret model, you have to work on these characteristics.
For your legs, lunges are ideal for working the inner and outer thighs. Try doing them with a 5- to 10-pound weight in each hand to increase the intensity. For your calves, try doing calf pulls (where you rise onto your toes from a standing position. See more leg toning exercises here.
For your butt, squats and deadlifts are the way to go-not only will they give you a firm, rounded booty, they'll also work your legs and core.
Just Remember -
you want to look lean rather than heavy, so focus on doing more repetitions with smaller weights rather than the other way around. See here for more butt toning exercises.
For a toned tummy, crunches are your best friend. Also, try reverse crunches and side crunches to work all your abdominal muscles. Planks are also great for building core strength. See here for more abdominal toning exercises.
5. Work In The Direction Of The Ideal Angel Measurement.
When working out, it's good to have a specific goal in mind. And what better goal to work towards than the VS Angel ideal measurement?
Most Angels have a body measurement of 32-22-32 – this means a 32” bust, a 22” waist and 34” hip. This means that Victoria's Secret models tend to have a classic hourglass figure (which is when the bust and hip measurements are at least ten inches wider than the waist.
Through your exercise you try to get as close to body measurement as possible. It's important to be realistic though - most women won't reach these measurements precisely because a lot depends on genetics and your natural body shape.
Don't let this discourage you though! You can be beautiful and angel-like even without these measurements - just do your best to be in the best shape for you, but remember that all VS angels are above 5' 9" height, and that with flat feet Is.
2. Eating Like An Angel
1. Eat Smoothies, Juices And Nutritional Bars For Breakfast.
It's important to realize that most Angels don't "diet," but do eat very healthy foods and try to eat as many fresh, organic, clean foods as possible. So, when breakfast
Egg whites on some whole grain toast.
Many Angels have declared their love for healthy smoothies and juices for breakfast – because they are healthy, filling and provide lots of energy to start the day.
For a fruit start, try mixing 1 cup of ice with 1/2 cup of frozen berries (such as strawberries, raspberries or blueberries). cup plain yogurt (low-fat), 1 small banana, 1 Tbsp (14.8 ml) honey and 1/2 cup rolled oats.
For a healthy green juice packed with vitamins and nutrients, put 2 green apples, 4 celery stalks, 1 cucumber, 6 kale leaves, half a lemon and 1 slice of fresh ginger through the juicer. These are his favourites, apparently a day
Out of these will make you feel great!
If you need something more filling in the morning, mix your juice with a nutrition bar, or prepare a small, egg white omelet or some oatmeal and have some yogurt.
2. Eat lean meat and boiled vegetables in dinner.
Lunch and dinner are more or less the same, generally - lean meat and steamed vegetables or salad.
When steaming vegetables make sure you don't overcook them - in fact the more raw you cook them, the better! Some of Angel's favorite vegetables include artichokes, asparagus, broccoli and kale, which he likes to season with salt, spices, and a little olive oil (according to his nutritionist, Dr. Charles Pasler).
In terms of protein, stick to things like chicken, turkey and fish, which you can flavor with spices, herbs or lemon juice before steaming or grilling.
Try to stay away from high-fat red meats and carb-heavy foods like pasta and bread. Angels prefer to "eat clean," which means avoiding foods that are processed in any way and eating only natural and chemical-free foods.
It also means staying away from greasy foods like french fries, and sugary candies and desserts. Of course, from time to time it is important to treat yourself to a small snack or chocolate. It's better than going overboard all at once.
Consider preparing your meals in advance. This will make it easier to stay on track.
3. Have Breakfast Every 2 To 3 Hours.
Victoria's Secret models are really careful about the type of foods they eat. There's no need to starve yourself—in fact, their nutritionists encourage models to eat every 2 to 3 hours!
Eating a small snack every 2 to 3 hours helps keep the metabolism running smoothly and prevents blood sugar from getting too low.
It also helps curb any cravings you may have for the foods on the "naughty list"!
Recommended snacks include half of a nutrition bar, a piece of fruit or a handful of almonds and dark chocolate once a week to reduce temptation.
4. Take Supplements For Healthy Hair, Skin And Nails.
Although a diet rich in healthy juices and plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables will provide you with plenty of vitamins and nutrients, it's a good idea to take some additional dietary supplements to get Angel-worthy hair, skin and nails.
Consider taking a cure-all vitamin supplement such as PhytoPhytophaner, which helps hair, skin, and nails grow faster and stronger, and works to reduce skin blemishes and shrink pores.
Alternatively, you can also take a water booster like Dr. Brandt Anti-Oxidant Water Booster. It's a kind of vitamin-rich syrup that you mix with water. It keeps your skin clean and healthy, while also giving you extra energy!
Nutritionists at Angels also recommend taking a supplement to keep the gastrointestinal system working (to prevent inflammation and aid in weight loss) and a supplement to promote muscle function. However, it's probably a good idea to talk to your doctor before you start taking any of these.
Consult the Angels Yourself! Miranda Kerr drinks four tablespoons of coconut oil a day to keep her skin and hair shiny and healthy.
5. Drink Plenty Of Water Daily.
You probably already know that drinking lots of water is really important, but if you want to look like a VS model, you're going to need to take that advice very seriously! 
Angels drink about 2 US quarts (2,000 ml) of water per day - that's the equivalent of four pints! To combat this, you'll probably have to keep a water bottle in your hand for the entire day!
Water is so important because it flushes out toxins from your system, increases blood flow and leaves your skin fresh and glowing! Don't forget to wash, cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin!
You can also increase your water intake by drinking herbal and green teas (which are rich in anti-oxidants) and eating fruits and vegetables with high water content such as cucumbers, tomatoes, watermelon, beets and lettuce.
3 Beautifying Like an Angel
1. Do Angel-Worthy Make Up.
To look like a VS Angel, you need to learn how to do your makeup like a VS angel. The Angels don’t tend to go overboard on their makeup, they prefer more of a healthy, glowing look with some added sparkle and shimmer!
Try to go for a mineral or powder foundation that matches your skin tone perfectly - you really don’t want to look like you’re caked in makeup!
Apply a little matching concealer under the eyes or to cover any blemishes, if necessary. Then use a pinky-bronze colored blush to add a healthy glow to your cheeks.
Apply eyeshadow in neutral colored creams and browns. Then, depending on your skin tone, use a black or brown eyeliner to line your upper lid only. Use a matching mascara to add volume and definition to your lashes.
The Angels don’t usually wear bold lipsticks, they prefer to go for soft pink and nude pouts. Try using a balmy lipstick that’s just a shade or two lighter or darker than your natural lip color. Stay away from glosses or anything that’s too shiny or shimmering. Just look at MAC lipsticks for a lovely nude shade.
2. Get Fabulous Hair.
Having fabulous hair is essential for any VS Angel. Make sure yours is in tip top condition by getting regular trims, using a weekly deep conditioning treatment and by avoiding excessive heat from styling tools like flat irons, curling tongs, and hair dryers. The better you treat your hair, the faster it will grow - and as you know, long, healthy hair is a VS model’s trademark.
When it’s time to get all-dolled up, the Angels favor loose, tousled-looking curls. To achieve this make sure your hair is freshly washed and conditioned, and use a nourishing serum or oil (such as argan oil) to add shine. Blow dry your hair using a round bristled brush to add lots of volume.
When your hair is dry, spritz it with some heat protection spray and begin making large, loose curls using your flat iron or curling tongs (for more specific instructions see here and here). When you’re done, spritz your hair with some loose hold hairspray and you’re ready for the runway!
3. Get A Beautiful Bronzed Body.
As you may have noticed, all of the Angel’s have beautiful, sun-kissed glows. Therefore, if you want to look like a VS model you’ll have to get your tan on!
However, as the Angels know, having healthy skin is far more important than having a tan. Therefore, it is absolutely essential that you wear sunscreen if you plan on lying out by the pool. Otherwise, you could be exposing your skin to burns and sunspots - not to mention contributing to wrinkles, premature aging and skin cancer!
If getting a natural tan feels like too much effort, you’re super pale, or you just want to avoid sun exposure - fret not! You can get a natural-looking tan from a bottle. Just make sure to exfoliate well before you apply any self-tanning products. For more info on using a self-tanner, see here.
4. Have Perfect, White Teeth.
Having perfect, straight, white teeth is another Angel must-have! Practice good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth 2 to 3 times a day, flossing regularly and avoiding sugary food and drinks.
You should also make an effort to see your dentist a couple of times a year. He can give your teeth a proper cleaning, getting rid of any stains or built-up plaque that are impossible to remove at home. This will also leave your teeth looking whiter!
If necessary, you can also ask your dentist about whitening treatments like laser or bleaching. These can be pricey, but are worth it if you really want a dazzlingly white smile! The same goes for braces - if your teeth are a little crooked, ask your dentist about your options for straightening them.
5. Dress To Impress.
The VS models are classy ladies, and even though they spend a lot of time in their underwear, they still manage to look glamorous and elegant - never trashy.
Try to emulate this in your everyday life by wearing polished, well-tailored clothes which highlight your feminine side. Think dark bootcut jeans, with crisp, button down shirts, or A-line dresses and skirts which cinch in at the waist. Wear understated jewelry and opt for low heels or pretty flats.
The most important thing is to wear clothes that fit you. Don’t wear too-small clothes thinking that they’ll make you look skinnier - they’ll actually have the opposite effect. Always try on clothes before buying and bring a trusted friend with you who can give you an honest opinion.
Even in their downtime, the Angel’s look well-put-together. Wear matching gym clothes (like the oh-so-comfortable yet stylish VS tracksuits) and always have your hair looking neat, even if it’s just tied back in a pony.
Of course, no Angel would be complete without her VS lingerie! Don’t be afraid of sexy lingerie, girls - it’s designed to make you feel beautiful, even underneath jeans and a t-shirt! Again, it’s important to wear the right size, as too-small lingerie can create bulges and lumps in all the wrong places.
6 Be Beautiful Inside And Out!
Not only are they some of the most beautiful people on the planet, VS Angels are also known for their friendliness, kindness and overall great personalities! This is something that you can easily adopt in your daily life. Just by smiling and being kind, you will spread beauty - just like an angel!
