exclusive! get summer ready with behati prinsloo

the victoria's secret model spills her tips and tricks.

Being a Victoria's Secret angel seems like an amazing job. Let's be real, you get to wear amazing outfits, hang out with other top models, travel the world, and shoot with legendary directors like Michael Bay. (Though if you need a little more proof that it rules, check out a behind-the-scenes look at the brand's summer campaign shoot.)

We chatted with one of VS's coolest angels (and one of our favorite models ever) Behati Prinsloo about her favorite parts of her job, plus her favorite summertime songs and snacks. Read on below for more. 

The biggest perk about being a VS Angel is...
Being part of an amazing family that love and take care of each other and have a blast together, traveling to the most amazing places on earth, and being part of the most established brand in the world. It's such a honor and dream come true. 
 
What advice would you give to someone who wants to channel their inner Angel?
Take care of yourself, believe in who you are as an individual, always have fun, and see the good in others.
 
Are there any VS girls (past or present!) who you look to for inspiration when you’re shooting the brand's ads?
I think Gisele Bundchen and Adriana Lima for me. They are both very strong beautiful independent women.
 
What are three songs you're putting on your summer playlists?
"It's Still Rock and Roll to Me" - Billy Joel
"Sun is Shining" - Bob Marley
"Every Little Thing She Does is Magic" - The Police 

You're throwing a summertime BBQ--what's on the menu?
Braai brootjies (look that up if you are not Afrikaans--it's the best thing ever), definitely some burgers, hotdogs, turkey dogs, veggies, a summertime salad, and a fruit salad.
 
If you could go on vacation with anyone on Earth, who would you want it to be?
All of my friends. We sure know how to have a good time. I'm very blessed in the friend department.
