When you are at the top of your game in your career, you get to do the job that you love over and over again, testing yourself against the biggest and best people in your industry. That is most certainly the case in the modelling industry, where models do a whole host of different fashion shows over the course of a year, going on to do hundreds, if not thousands over the course of their career.
25-year-old Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel has been involved in the modelling industry for many years now and has become one of the biggest and best models on the face of the Earth. However, Candice has now admitted that, even though she has done hundreds of fashion shows in her lifetime, she still gets nervous in the build up to a big show.
Swanepoel told The Telegraph, "I get so nervous, it's terrible. I get nervous about three weeks before the show. Last year I had to take a week off, because I get really nervous and all the muscle that I've built up I lose it really quickly if I get stressed out. So I took my trainer to Brazil where I can eat a lot of meat because I like to be a little bigger for the show, just to feel sexier and more womanly."
Being one of the world's top models does not come easy and there are a lot of sacrifices that one has to make to get to the top of the modelling game. All models have their own unique diet and training routine, as they aim to be in the best possible shape at all times. It is all worth it in the end though.
