What comes to your mind when you hear these names- Naomi Campbell, Heidi Klum, Gisele Bündchen, and Adriana Lima? Sure they are the incredibly attractive and successful top model. But they also happen to have one more thing in common- Its Victoria’s Secret.
Being pickup up by the brand is a mark of professional success for the models. One thing that these models have in common with some of us is the thirst for success in their career. These models do know a thing or two about making it to the top in their field. Some of their advice would surely resonate with you no matter which career path you take or what industry you belong to.
Here are the 10 best pieces of advice we have come across from Victoria’s Secret Models-
About taking care of yourself and enhancing your knowledge
“We all live these modern, busy lives, so finding ways to take care of yourself is so important. Education and knowledge is a superpower too.” — Karlie Kloss
About having the confidence to do what you want in life
“Just have confidence in anything you do or anything you put your mind to.” — Chanel Iman
About the importance of meaningful networking
“You have to realize that everyone that you are working with is important. It doesn’t matter where you are starting from, you are always going to run back into those people and they are going to talk and that’s going to be the base of whether you get good opportunities or not.” — Gigi Hadid
About working hard and letting go of your comfort
“There is no nap time for me. But I don’t regret any of the great things or great challenges.” — Adriana Lima
About being versatile & taking new challenges head-on
“Although I have walked in Victoria’s Secret show a number of times, the process is unique each year. You never know what direction or what a client is looking for.” — Shanina Shaik.
About listening to your gut and being confident
“Having cast for the Victoria’s Secret show for many years I have learned so much and most importantly to take on my own advice. Confidence and showing your unique personality is key!” — Shanina Shaik
About being comfortable in your own skin
“As a model, you’re constantly scrutinized for the way you look, and I always used to compare myself to other people. I would look at successful models and think: I need to look more like that. Now I realize it isn’t about trying to replicate someone else – it’s about being who you are, and being comfortable in yourself.” — Elsa Hosk
About handling emotions
“I think the most challenging part of the preparation has been pushing my emotions to the side. There are a lot of days I am too tired, too sore, or just want to lay in bed all day. Taking a minute to acknowledge those feelings but then getting up and doing what needs to be done has definitely been challenging.” — Alannah Walton
About leaving petty and peripheral issues behind
“Having this voice now, I would tell young girls not to worry about pettiness. You’ll all be friends in 10 years.” — Taylor Hill
About knowing when to stop
“Don’t pluck your eyebrows, don’t dye your hair and lay off on the smoky eye.” — Candice Swanepoel
