Out of the whole gang – past and present – who’s your all-time favourite VS model?

I can’t even choose! I’ve looked up to numerous girls, I look up to Candice [Swanepoel] currently and I look up to Adriana [Lima] and Lily [Donaldson] and Doutzen [Kroes] and I’ve been looking up to all of them to kind of absorb some of their wisdom.

What made you want to be a Victoria’s Secret model? 

I’ve grown up watching the brand and I’ve looked up to the girls and I see how special it is and how family-orientated it is, specifically how it looks after the girls and it’s something you always dream about as a model.
