The Angels are not only models, but performers and athletes. Adriana says “ I’ve been boxing for 10 years, and I love it, it’s a passion of mine.” They work with trainers and nutritionists for months to prepare for the show. Boxing, cycling, ballet and intense boot camps are only a few of the workouts the Angels have become notorious for. In an interview with Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio the women reveal 2am workouts in the hotel gym the night before the show.
As well as preparing for the show every “Angel” becomes a spokes person for the brand. As a part of the casting process, the casting directors conduct a series of interviews to learn more about their personalities. It takes a long time to decide who will be apart of the fashion show each year. The casting directors base their decisions on a number of factors including size, height, personality, face and how all the girls fit together. It is certainly not easy to become an angel.
Walking the runway takes a lot more than a powerful walk and fierce look. If you intend on pursuing a modeling career, get ready for an interesting ride.
