Portuguese beauty Sara Sampaio has enjoyed quite the rise in the modelling industry over the past few years, becoming one of the biggest and best models in the business, working with some of the top names on the modelling scene. As well as appearing in the annual publication Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Sara has also become a Victoria's Secret Angel.
Sara Sampaio has now opened up about getting to work with Victoria's Secret, admitting that walking in their annual fashion show has become the highlight of her year, although it is not as easy as it looks. Sara claims that being a Victoria's Secret Angel comes with a lot of hard work, admitting that she looks nothing like how she does on the runway, in her real life.
Sampaio was chatting to Net-A-Porter's The Edit, when she explained, "When I started modelling I didn't know anything about fashion, but I'd watched the Victoria's Secret Show. Now it's the highlight of my year, but I never realized it would be so much work and how tough it is to stay in your best shape. It's not as glam as it looks!"
She added, "People need to realize that models get [professional] hair and makeup, incredible lighting, and we know how to pose. I've been doing this job for almost 10 years so I know how my body looks good from different angles. But I don't look like that in real life. I'm like every other girl; there are things I wish I could change about my body, but I try not to think about them too much."
It is always nice to hear a top model coming out and admitting that they too have insecurities about their bodies, as it certainly helps to make us feel better about ourselves.
