The Irish beauty (25), whose parents hail from Belfast, has walked for three of the biggest shows of the season including Tommy Hilfiger, DKNY and Jeremy Scott.

Maxwell, whose status soared when she was named a Victoria's Secret Angel in 2014, has been treating the streets of New York as her personal runway upping her street style game during one of the most stylish times of the year.

And she said she's been increasing her exercise regime in anticipation of fashion month as she is also expected to walk in London, Paris and Milan.

"I’ve been getting into doing a lot of yoga lately, and working out with my trainer," she told StyleCaster.

"I work out three to four times each week and because I work out a lot during the week so I try to just fit [exercise] in around that.

"[We do] a lot of weights focusing on building lean muscles rather than bulking up. There’s a lot of stretching and jump rope."

In June, she was named the Sexiest Woman in the World by Maxim and credits her success to being a late bloomer.

"I think those of us who have found success grew into ourselves in our 20s,” she tells the mag. "I know I was not the hottest chick at school! We all peaked a little later than the other girls.”

"If I wasn’t a model, I don’t know what I’d do, but I would be working just as hard at whatever it was."
