Lily Aldridge is taking inspiration from Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook ahead of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

The Victoria's Secret Angel is working hard to prepare her body for the lingerie giant's Christmas runway show in just a few weeks. While celebrating the launch of the World’s Best Sports Bras from Victoria’s Secret, Lily shared her diet and exercise regime.

“I’m doing a lot of Ballet Beautiful right now, Ballet Beautiful and just eating really healthy,” she explained to Modelina. “My favourite healthy meal is just a simple roasted chicken - I really like Gwyneth Paltrow’s recipe from her new cookbook. You can make it at home and it’s delicious.”

Lily also revealed which areas of her body she is targeting to ensure she looks perfect on the runway for the show. The 27-year-old model explained it’s important to retain her sexy curves.

“I switch it up between warm yoga and Ballet Beautiful,” she added. “I started working out with her [Mary Helen Bowers] again in September. I told her, ‘OK, let’s just focus on my gluts and my core,’ so that’s what we’ve really been working on the past few weeks. Those are really the most important areas to work when you’re modelling lingerie, because you want to have the sexy, hourglass shape.”

Fellow Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio can’t wait for the famous after-party following the elaborate catwalk event. She plans to hit the dancefloor as soon as the show is finished.

“I really love the after party after the day of the show. I just like to dance out all of the tension that you get in doing the show,” she smiled. “To me, it’s all about releasing that tension and dancing all night!”
