Shanina Shaik says the Victoria Secret’s girls are forced to eat three hearty meals on the day of the Fashion Show.
The 24-year-old model may have been sticking to a green diet in the months leading up to the brand’s annual event but she has admitted all the models were required to tuck into breakfast, lunch and dinner before they walked the runway at Lexington Avenue Armory in New York last night (11.10.15).
Speaking on Australia’s KIISFM’s ‘Kyle and Jackie O Show’ prior to the catwalk event, she said: “There’s breakfast, we have lunch [and] we have a dinner before the show starts. We need to keep our energy up so it’s important that we do eat.”
Despite being strict on her diet and exercise regime, the brunette beauty has admitted she occasionally caves into her sugar cravings and can’t help devouring a tub of ice-cream or demolishing a slab of chocolate.
She explained to ‘Sunrise’: “I like to eat a lot of protein and vegetables, [and] drink lots of water. I love my food, I love chocolate, I like ice cream, so I’ll eat it every now and then.”
Meanwhile, this year’s Victoria’s Secret Show was a huge success after Behati Prinsloo – who walked first in 2014 – again opened the annual event, followed by long-time angel Alessandra Ambrosio and Candice Swanepoel.
Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid made their debut, while Lily Aldridge stole the show when she walked down the catwalk in this year’s $2 million Fireworks Fantasy Bra.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air on CBS on Tuesday, December 8.
