I'm an advocate for if you take something, you have to give something back, and I think Raw Spirit shares that philosophy. I love that it gives back to the communities they partner with. It's just truly a pure of hearted company.
I am a woman after all, so some days I feel good and sexy in a bikini, and other days, I'm like, 'Where are my caftans?!'
I have so many bras. I have so many, and then they get lost, and I look for a simple nude one to wear, and I can't find one because there's, like, lace and crazy colors that I never wear.
I also love a good cheesy movie, and I'm kind of addicted to my computer.
I can't deal with the gym too much if I don't have somebody telling me what to do.
Like my makeup, I keep my hair simple. It's either down or in a ponytail.
My favourite way of getting ready for a red carpet event is to turn the hair and makeup time into a bit of a pre-party. I use the same artists all of the time, so we know each other so well – so it's a 'hanging with friends' session. Music, lots of laughing, and food – because you must eat before the event.
Honestly, I don't shop in L.A. very much – it's mostly in New York or when I'm away on trips.
I travel so much for work that when I fly, I prefer to travel light and bring a carry-on bag that I don't need to check.
I think I've learned a lot just from being in the industry in general, and I never really thought about what to put in my hair to get a perfect beach wave until I started modeling. People will use certain products on me, and I learn that way.
For summer, I definitely love doing stuff outside. I love beach volleyball if you're close to something like that. It's really fun; you can do it with a lot of friends.
I think the T-Shirt bra is really special for Victoria's Secret because it's that kind of simple bra that you wear under the t-shirt, so it doesn't have any lace or anything like that. So it's very smooth; it's very comfortable; it doesn't have a lot of padding in it.
I tried a juice cleanse once, and by the third day, I wanted to kill everyone. I honestly don't even think it's healthy. It's not good for you to just drink juice. Like, if you detox for one or two days, fine, but a 10- or 14-day juice cleanse? You have headaches, and I was in the worst moods. I couldn't do it. Starving.
I listen to a lot of Sublime. Dude, I'm obsessed with Sublime. You have no idea.
If I'm in N.Y.C., I love walking around during the summer. It's hot, but I love it. I enjoy seeing everyone out. New York is such a fun place. The energy is so amazing here during the summer.
When I have a shoot or a big job coming up, I try my best to work out four or five times a week.
I like to start the day with yoga. It's the best way of moving into the day.
My closet is pretty organized, I'm proud to say. It's set up by type of clothes and then by color. And then, of course, there's the rotating from spring/summer to fall/winter.
I think every girl has a little bit of rebellion inside. It's always fun to not follow every trend and not be the perfect good girl. It's edgy to be a little rebellious.
I'll paddle board, swim in the ocean, roll in the sand, soak up the sun, eat good food, be with friends and family and go fishing with my dad.
First date, it's always fun to go somewhere or do something, like go see a band… not make it too formal.
When you pump up your exercise, it makes you feel better and makes you look better, so you do a better job. It's mental, too.
I love Marilyn Monroe, Jimi Hendrix, and Kurt Cobain. I really do. It doesn't matter what style they had – whether it was pin-up or whatever – it just worked for them, and it looked effortless even though it was fabulous. I like anything that just looks effortless.
I love Instagram – I don't actually go on Twitter and tweet; I just connect it through my Instagram account. I think it's a good way of getting stuff out there and connecting with people.
My ultimate style pin up is a tough question because my own style is influenced by so many sources. From Bianca Jagger to Kate Moss to Julie Christie. I love how they are always themselves and it never looks too 'done.'
Chanel makes an incredible red lip, and Tarte makes the best nude colors! I also love Giorgio Armani lipsticks – the Rouge d'Armani.
The beach is definitely where I feel most at home. It's my oxygen. I forget how much I need it sometimes when I'm away working.
I really like the Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony collection – all of those kind of laser-cut leather dresses.
For me, it's hard to wear a bra the whole entire day if it's got underwire.
Guys are so not into high-waisted things. I love high-waisted jeans. We all think that high-waisted things are flattering and awesome and beautiful and we're rocking it, and guys are always like, 'Ugh, she's wearing those high-waisted pants.'
I love Versace; I love Donatella's vision! It still has that '90s supermodel vibe.
I have no expectations. Not in a bad way, but I've learned that you can't plan ahead. I live day by day and see what happens.
I've always wanted a family since I was a little girl – a big family. I'm an only child, so I wanted, like, 10 kids… for sure.
I honestly can't pick a favorite person I like to work with – that would be like choosing a favorite child!
Pilates makes you feel good because you're doing something that's good for your body, and you start seeing it. It elongates the muscles.
I tend to only color my hair once a year because I just like lighter streaks, and then, when I go in the sun, my hair naturally just goes lighter anyway.
It's overkill when you put too much fragrance on. It's the worst. Not sexy, and it makes me want to puke. I'm nauseous. Know what I mean? Your game's off.
The cut of the bikini is definitely important. You want to wear one that compliments your body type.
I grew up in a really small town, so it wasn't really a fashion-forward place, and it was very casual.
I've been blessed to work with amazing designers who have generously given me beautiful bags. Lancaster was very sweet and let me pick out my favorite one when I shot the campaign.
I try to do Pilates when I can all year around and I also like to swim a lot. I also have a trainer that kicks my butt when it's needed.
My mom used to call me a 'jean hoarder' growing up because I had so many pairs of jeans – and I still do.
