Victoria’s Secret Models Reveal What They Ate the Day of the Show

FP_4052360_VictoriasSecret_ROC_111909 - Victoria's Secret Models Reveal What They Ate the Day of the Show

This should be interesting! Let’s hear them out:

Caroline Winberg: “I had yogurt, berries, and coffee. Then I had some steak, pasta, and chocolate cake! I don’t believe in not eating–I would get in a very bad mood if I don’t munch on something.”

Chanel Iman: “Last night, I’ve had a big feast. I always eat a lot, but I wanted to fill myself up and feel sexy next to these real women. Because sometimes I feel like I have a baby body! I think eating is sexy.”

Marisa Miller: “Bring me a cupcake as I’m running off the runway. Just throw it to me.”

Eniko Mihalik: “My breakfast consisted of fruits and cold medicine.”

Anja Rubik: “I’ve decided this will be my starving day today.” – hmm, that doesn’t sound too good.

Those outfits are really ugly. I don’t think any amount of starving or gorging will change that.

It really is. What person is seriously going to wear that net looking number on the left? She looks like a fisherman’s catch.

Yeah, but I guess all the decorations are just there to glitz up the actual lingerie a bit. I know even if they do look a bit ugly, I would choose the theatrics of those outfits over a model just walking out in bra and panties.

Much more fun this way.

I believe them, a lot of people are naturally thin, there is no reason why they shouldn’t eat the day of the show… I know that if I was on the show I would eat, and it wouldn’t show or anything. I don’t think I would stuff myself because then I would go into sleep mode, but I would have a healthy meal cause otherwise I wouldn’t have energy for the show, I would just look tired. I find it normal that some eat before the show and others don’t, according to their own metabolism and mentality. Chanel and Caroline… Read more »

I actually Caroline looks smaller than Anja and I believe Chanel I just think errrr she’s not the brightest bulb and is a tad narcissistic because she thinks shes the next tyra banks and shell never be. They said that about Jessica White and not gonna be the next Tyra either.

Caroline didn’t say HOW MUCH she ate. She could have had just a few bites of each. I doubt she had a big plate of pasta.

And Anja is DEFINITELY anorexic! The way she says “starving day” is how someone would talk about their cheat day! Messed up!

ha
Guest

At least Anja is honest about it. Like Marissa Miller is eating cupcakes… Oh, and teensy tiny Chanel Iman definitely loves eating loads.

I don’t have that much of a problem with anorexic girls (honestly, not that many “impressionable” teen girls get anorexia, not nearly on the scale of those who are obese), but I hate the ones who lie about it.

I agree. I think anorexia is bad of course, but I sure as hell wouldn’t be eating much if I was about to walk down a runway on national tv. It always annoys me more when “models” say they eat anything. And especially when they say they are eating unhealthy things like steak and cupcakes, like that’s a good thing – when it’s not for anyone. I don’t buy it and I think it’s obnoxious. Oh and I wanted to add – I am thin, but I do eat healthy, and stay active, and if I’m going somewhere special, a… Read more »

well, marisa said she had been eating healthily all along for the show. she told the interviewer that she asked her friend to “throw [her] a cupcake” once she got off the runway. i know because i saw it in that short interview of her. i felt a teensy bit of hope that she too had to eat healthy (not all boiling down to good genes – e.g. chanel iman still gets to enjoy her huge feast the night before?!)

Casey
Guest

Anja is such a pretty girl but she would look so much better with some weight on her.

I believe the comments. The meals sound like something I would expect models to eat…fruits and protein. And Marisa has always been thin so she can probably eat things like cupcakes without worrying about it.

Bri
Guest

Oh yeah Anja is gorgeous, but I looked at the comment first before the picture. It shows how skinny Anja is…her cheeks are sunkin in, and…oh dear I hope she won’t fall into anorexia.She’s too pretty for that.

It’s kind of stupid, I model locally (I’m in Cleveland, Ohio) and I do print and commercial modeling- not the same but still. I can eat whatever and not really watch it or exercise and I still stay very skinny (5’7″ 103 pounds), HOWEVER, I don’t go around acting like I eat a ton, I eat moderatly. And typically before a shoot or a show I usually skip out eating that day until it’s done with, just becuase you don’t want to look bloated and also I get nervous and get nauseated. But it’s stupid to act like you PIG… Read more »

Whoa! Not trying to sound hurtful at all, but 5’7″ and 103lbs? I know that BMI is a ballpark thing to take into consideration, but I am also 5’7″ and Im pretty sure that 118-120 is the lowest weight for females at our height. 103 is close to 20lbs less than the recommendation. It would make your BMI barely 16….

Katie
Guest
Katie

Yeah I know but like I said, I’m naturally skinny. I mean my feet are only like a size 5 and my ring size is a 4, I’ve got little bones lol. But what I mean was, even for me being so skinny, I eat moderatly what I want but I don’t act like I gorge on stuff like what these women are claiming. The cupcake one I can see though.

TJ
Guest
Ok, glad you didn’t take offense. 🙂 I agree with you. I respect celebrities/models who actually admit that it takes a lot of pain and suffering for them (sometimes) to lose weight or maintain such low body weight. That’s Hollywood – and their choice to work in that business. I personally would NEVER want my weight to be such a big part of my own career. How miserable would it be to constantly have to critique the way you look to make sure that you can pay your bills or put food on the table? (put food on the table… Read more »

cc – I would reply to you specifically, but comments on your post have been turned off. Believe what you may, personally, I like to do research on anything I “believe” before I announce my opinion on a topic. I encourage you to Google search BMIs – in fact, Google search several different BMI calculators.

I dont beleive that some of the girls gorged themselves. there going out to make the clothes look good who in their right mind would eat their own body weight before they walked out in practically nothing. its their job to look good i would prolly not eat the day of that show either.

exactly. even a thin person will not gorge themselves if they are about to go on tv modelling lingerie. it will make you feel fat, sluggish and bloated. no one would do that

I agree. I thought that was makeup on her face or she had high cheekbones, but her cheeks are that sunken, that’s not good. I don’t think she’s pretty period. I don’t see model. I wonder if she’s that Anja girl.

I believe some of them, I’ve seen Marisa eating a donut during her make-up at backstage of VS fashion show (in VS fashion show video). She also admits that she eats very healthy everyday. When people eat very healthy everyday, I don’t think a donut or a cupcake would do anything to their body.

jhjh

agreed! one snack or meal isn’t going to do ANYTHING especiallly when you workout everyday and eat healthy 90% of the time, like she says she does

As I recall they showed her holding a doughnut. That scene was so staged it was pathetic, just like these fake comments about how they eat cake and pasta the day of a runway show. They are liars.

vivi
Guest
vivi
Why is eating a doughnut pathetic? if you keep eating healthy all the time, you will have a fit body and eating cakes and pastas for a day right before runway won’t matter at all. in the show, Marisa was eating a doughnut and she said it helped her release the stress before going on the run way. The topic is about what they ate on the day of the show, not what they always eat. Marisa doesn’t lie about her diet and fitness if you have seen her interviews, she worked out very hard and eat healthy most of… Read more »

Chloe

she told her friend to throw her a cupcake when she gets OFF the runway, because she had been on a healthy diet for the show. i watched that in her interview.

vivi
Guest
vivi

when she said she only ate rice and potatoes, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t eat junk food at all, she probably eats cupcakes once in a while and there is nothing to be surprised of. she’s a professional model, keeping fit is her job, and she did a great job.

cinderella
Guest

i think there’s a difference between having one piece of cake or cupcake and eating healthy/working out the rest of the time compared to eating junk food and fast food 24/7… marissa miller and some of the other models might do that, but that being said, i really doubt that ANY of the models had cake the day before they were expected to be half naked in front of millions… i think its sad that anja ate nothing at all.. and im surprised shes not exaggerating her food consumption to appear “normal” or “naturally” thin whats with the cough medicine… Read more »
belle
Guest
belle

I think it may depend on how she said the cough medicine thing. i think she may have been just joking.
I think that cake comment was really weird. the cupcake one. It sounds like she’s been not eating if she’s that ravenous about a cupcake. but maybe she too was just joking.

SZE
Guest

The cupcake comment cake sounds weird to me too. I think what she was trying to say is not that she stuffs her mouth with cupcakes all the time, but that she is sooo careful about what she eats the weeks before the fashion show, that she just can’t wait for it to be over and finally have a cupcake!!

There was more to the cold medicine quote than was posted on here. In the original interview she went on and said,

“I was afraid of having no energy in the morning because of my sickness, but how can you not wake up for this”

A
Guest
If you’ve got a healthy metabolism and a healthy diet, your body will burn the calories you put into it. Not eating can actually make you more bloated- ever seen photos of starving children? Their bellies look like watermelons. Also, when you deprive yourself of the necessary amount of calories, your body begins to retain whatever fat it has, which makes you actually look worse than if you did eat. In the long run, yes, you’d lose weight, but it would be nearly impossible to keep it off. I am a part-time model in NY, and I make a point… Read more »

your average sized cupcake is only 250 calories and a small bite of cake is only 50. trust me, a thin girl can definitely eat those foods. just in moderation.

EWWWW, that girl on the right looks horrific- she looks like an AIDS victim or something. I thought VS girls were supposed to be voluptuous? This super skinny crap is getting out of control.

Being naturally skinny is one thing but some of these girls look like they have no muscle mass whatsoever, like their body is eating itself to stay alive. Nasty.

I think there’s something fishy about Anja’s comment. Usually someone who actually has an ED is secretive about it and certainly would comment about it to a reporter who would then share it, internationally, with millions of people.

I believe she was either kidding (something that doesn’t tend to come across in print), she’s looking for attention, or she’s just plain dense and wasn’t thinking about what she said.

How can Anja even be in a VS show? She is so skinny and her quote made me sick. Although, I’m sure she has good reason, if she had a sandwhich you could probably see the outline of it in her “stomach”. HA.

Hydrangea
Guest
Hydrangea
Because of the whole skinny-obsession going on right now, I think we have to be careful not to forget that many girls actually do subscribe naturally to a tiny size, and therefore shouldn’t be crucified for it. Often times their weight is lower than the scientific BMI and their bodies are just fine with that. They eat what they want and their bodies and metabolisms put them at whatever weight it sees fit. At least that’s what my body does. I don’t personally know if that’s the case for Chanel and these ladies, but I can relate to being called… Read more »
TJ

Ohhhhh, how I agree with you! I’ve been on both ends of the spectrum…I’ve been bigger (after having babies), and I have looked pretty skinny (after losing my baby weight)! I will tell you that people, specifically women, are pretty cruel no matter what size you are. When I weighed more, people would hardly look at me when I spoke to them. Really, people don’t give you the time of day when you appear overweight. I think they look at you like you are fat because you sit around all day being lazy and eating too much. However, when you… Read more »
Casey
Guest

I agree with both of you.

I also want to add that if you happen to be a thin person, and you are constantly bombared with accusations of not eating, restrictive dieting, or having anorexia, eventually you do start to sort of “exaggerate” what you eat when telling others so that they’ll leave you alone.

I think most of these girls eat normally or slightly below normal (1800 calories), especially on the day of a fashion show. But I think they act like they ate 3000 calories because people are always calling them anorexic.

Jo
Guest

I completely agree. I’m underweight (95 lbs) although I eat regularly and healthily and I always feel hurt whenever people call me ‘malnourished’ or ‘stick monster’ and whenever my brother publicly cracks jokes about me being bulimic, especially since I was once anorexic and had trusted my only brother with my condition, not even my parents. He thinks it’s okay to joke about bulimia because 1) I’m not bulimic and 2) by ridiculing eating disorders I would be shamed into ‘fixing’ my own. I can’t ever trust my brother again.

Yeah they had pizza back stage and were actually mid way through a sub sandwich as they stepped on the runway, when they’d finished there fat asses were carted off to maccy D’s where they always always super size.

Maybe if they were not asked such stupid questions, they would not have to invent stupid answers.

Asking models (UNDERWEAR models at that) what they ate the night before the show that MILLIONS of people watched/scrutinized is incredibly sardonic.

The nature of the question is meant to be rhetorical, as any answer they give will sound ridiculous and invite commentary.

I think some of them may have been joking around with the media. I guess it would be a pretty funny thing to say if you had “Anorexic” posted beside your name in the media every day. But yeah I agree with the majority here, the last girl was honest. Although, even if I was a model I would still eat maybe a little that morning… like some cereal at least and coffee of course. I wouldn’t eat nothing cause I would be afraid my sugar would be really low and I’d pass out on the runway. I would eat… Read more »

Caroline: could be telling the truth if she is saying she basically at breakfast and one or two bites each of those other foods; that would not make anyone too bloated, just a couple bites.

Chanel: sounds like she’s lying because she doesn’t say anything specific.

Marisa: is referring to AFTER the show? meaning she doesn’t eat much before (again, could be lying because she’s not being specific).

Eniko: I’m thinking she was sick that day with a cold or something.

Anja: probably telling the truth. I think she is too skinny for VS.

The Fourth Estate-What a gag! To think people actually get paid to find out models eat. I don’t bash people for watching these shows, looking at the models etc but interviews with the clothing hangers about what they eat? I worked in radio journalism for a year and a half. I ended up quitting because they wanted me to report on silly garbage like this. And I must say, I’ve never understood why Victoria’s Secret is considered the pinnacle of sexiness. It’s the Wal-Mart of Sexy. Made by sweatshop workers in the far east who live in shanty towns. Modeled… Read more »

If I was a Victoria’s Secret model I think I would definitely eat on the day of a big show because I actually tend to get a really bloated stomach on days where I don’t eat or eat hardly anything! I’d just eat really safe foods and like small portions at a time and stuff so I didn’t bloat my belly.

Zoi

Weight and fat are simply the result of how many calories you receive and how many calories you burn. You can have a cake or pasta and still be thin, as long as you don’t exceed the calories you burn. Of course for a healthy diet, we also have to eat salads and fruits, not just cake and pasta 🙂

skirmute
Guest
It’s totally believable they ate normally on the day of the show. But they definitely didn’t pig out. You can still be slim even if you eat cupcakes and pasta. That’s exactly my case. I eat whatever (but I try to eat healthy most of the time); I have to eat something sweet every single day because my organism is simply demanding sugar. I just don’t eat like a pig. Moderation is the key. So I believe they really do eat, even junk food. Eating properly most of the time gives you a right to give yourself a treat without… Read more »

I don’t understand some commenters fussing about anja’s comment. I mean they are models, the earn a huge amount of money, looking perfect is their job, that’s what they are paid for! I think it’s absolutely logical, that many models, including anja (I’m sure that all the others quoted in this post are lying), are NOT eating the day of the show or even the night before to look perfect on the runway! It’s not even about putting on weight because of the eating, it’s just a fact, that after a big meal your belly (especially when you are semi-naked… Read more »

Sorry but some of the comments here are stupid, just because some people can’t eat and stay thin doesn’t mean it’s like that for everyone.

While Chanel might have exaggerated the “feast”, I don’t see why eating a lot the night before would make you look bloated all next day. And Caroline said she ate “some” steak, pasta…

I’m sure a lot of the VS models eat the day of the show, otherwise half of them would be dragging themselves down the runway. Not everybody can smile and walk energetically while they are starving.

Models are paid to be skinny regardless of whether or not they are are blessed with fast metabolisms. I don’t think a lot of them can be honest about what they eat. If they say they eat big feasts or tons of carbs it sounds like a lie, or admission of bulimia. If they say they don’t eat, it sounds like an admission of anorexia. They are damned if they eat and damned if they don’t, so why bother asking them? Kate Moss got in trouble for saying “nothing tastes as good as being thin feels” she was attacked for… Read more »

If you look at Caroline, she looks very slim but she doesn’t look like she starves herself so I believe that she eats whats she says in moderation. Anja clearly looks too thin. Her face is so gaunt and the fact that she says she eats nothing at all some days means she is likely to have an eating disorder. At the age of 24 you are no longer growing so there’s no reason a woman would EVER look THAT thin naturally if she was eating properly.
