First Fashion show

She appeared in the 2010 dramedy film Somewhere for her role as a Vampire model.
She has modeled for Victoria’s Secret and Justin Gelband is the trainer responsible for sculpting all the VS models. Justin puts more emphasis on diet. He recommends not to overeat and trim off salt, sugar (except berries), alcohol strictly from the diet. He suggests Dr. D’Adamo’s blood type diet to his clients.
Carbohydrates should be reduced from one’s diet, but make sure to eat some otherwise the person will feel devoid of energy.
Raw nuts and avocados are good for gaining energy, according to Gelband. But, apart from giving energy, they also provide fats, so eating to the fullest will not do good to health.
Justin recommends his clients to do interval training of 30 minutes rather than hour plus cardio sessions. Also, sprints are not recommended by him (though they shed away lot many calories in less amount of time) as they can injure the models easily and are good for persons looking to build muscles or making the body bulky.
