Cara Delevingne prepared for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show by having “a juice”.
The British supermodel was widely tipped not to appear on the coveted lingerie catwalk last night, with claims she was putting her acting career first. She surprised many by taking to the runway at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City, but didn’t have much time to prepare.
“Umm…I went to Juice Press yesterday and had a juice, but really I haven’t done much to prepare,” she told GraziaDaily when asked about her regime. “I actually found out quite late that I was doing the show because of my filming schedule. The new Call of Duty [computer game] came out so I’ve been playing that like crazy and eating [takeaway] pizza. And [takeaway] chicken strippers, all 21 of them.”
The admission comes as something of a shock as models are known to go to extreme lengths to tone up for the iconic runway. Many go on juice diets for weeks beforehand and ramp up their workouts too.
Cara’s lack of gym time didn’t show on the catwalk, where she stunned in a black lace bodice with tulip skirt, yellow gloves and delicate black wings to signal her Angel status. Another look saw her rock a sportier vibe, with a bright blue sparkly push-up bra under a white and red playsuit.
Jourdan Dunn also took to the stage last night, wearing a red coat over white and blue briefs and bra, complete with black knee-high boots and a riding crop.
“To be honest I didn’t do anything different,” Jourdan said of her preparations. “Yesterday me and Cara were looking around at the other girls and saying damn! We should have gone to the gym – look at all these girls! But no, I didn’t change what I ate or anything like that. But I did get laser hair removal which was amazing – waxing’s such a b***h. I also got an oxygen facial.”
Cara admitted suffering from nerves ahead of the event, but was determined to conquer them. She also worries before striding down the catwalk but is adamant she feeds off the anxiety.
Jourdan doesn’t get so apprehensive, but struggled with “being sexy all day”. “Really, you can’t turn it off, my cheeks are so sore from all the smiling,” she laughed.
The two models also had kind words for the other women who walked last night, including Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio.
“Those Brazilians!” Cara cried, when quizzed on who has the ultimate Victoria’s Secret body. “What are they doing over there, how do they do it? It’s just incredible! I love curves, I’m all about curves. I don’t have many which is really sad, but I think the more the better.”
