Name: Kelly Gale

Age: 22

Height: 5’9” / 176 cm

Nationality: Swedish

Modeling for: Sports Illustrated, Victoria’s Secret

On being called too fat:

‘I hear these things constantly, I’m too skinny, too fat, too tall, too short. I am confident in my own skin. There are people in the industry who will tell me I’m too skinny or too fat and that is fine, I won’t work with them and I’m fine with that. Anything that will get to me is never about looks on the outside. It would be someone saying something hurtful about my personality because I don’t really care too much about what people say about my looks.’

On how she prepared for the Victoria’s Secret show:

‘Four weeks before the show I like to kick it in high gear. Which for me means cutting out sodium. I try to stay away from all kinds of sugars except for the sugars I get from the berries in my breakfast and coconut sugar from the occasional raw vegan chocolate bar that I eat. My lunch and dinner meals before the show include lots of vegetables and lean protein such as shrimps, scallops, egg whites, turkey breast and white fish.’
