Erin Heatherton Quotes

1. It's a lot of fun - I think there's something special and timeless about girls getting ready together. This is the ultimate display - head-to-toe.

2. I think sexiness always comes from within, because it doesn't look "like" anything. It is unapologetic. It is someone who has no fear of what anybody else thinks of them. Being yourself is very sexy, you know?

3. Gisele (Bundchen) is an amazing role model. She's an activist, a mother, a strong woman. And modeling is not about beauty, it's an opportunity to be empowered to inspire others and to use the opportunity to do special things and I think Gisele is a great example of that. 

4. My favorite thing about being an Angel is having the opportunity to play with my femininity - it's a kind of creativity I never tapped into growing up.

5. I like to inform my trainer of upcoming events so that we may coordinate a proper workout plan for each event. Sometimes the workout intensifies depending on the upcoming schedule.

6. (on her beauty secret) Definitely get enough sleep and plenty of water. There's nothing to replace those things - you can pile on the moisturiser, but there's no equivalent to sleep. Rest is the best thing for your body rather than working out or dieting. Sleep can change your whole metabolism, so it's my number one priority when it comes to looking good.

7. When I first started modeling, I didn't know anything about the fashion industry and I wasn't expecting to be a part of it, so obviously I never expected to be a Victoria's Secret Angel. But now I believe that nothing is impossible and that I should follow my heart. If you work hard and you do your best, you can do anything.

8. I think we all feel insecure about the way we look. Your body and your natural beauty is a blessing, a true gift. For me, I love the things about myself that maybe other people would call flaws, because they make me who I am. Perfection is really boring! Being different and special are the things you should embrace about yourself, there's nothing more beautiful than that.

9. Don't skip meals, it's really bad for you. I get so busy that I forget to eat, and that's really hurt me in the past. I gained weight from that. I used to be better at eating all the time, but now I force myself. It's like, okay, it's been four hours, time to eat! I gotta keep things moving!

10. It's important to be fit, but you shouldn't get too skinny. You need to have curves.

11. I love to learn and Victoria's Secret has given me more opportunities than I ever thought possible. I like doing things that scare me - I've learned never to doubt myself.

12. In terms of working out, I love to do Ballet Beautiful, which you can buy on iTunes and do at home. The instructor trained Natalie Portman for "Black Swan". She teaches you how to hyper-extend and use your body in a thousand different ways for a really lean, elegant look. I used to have terrible posture and this fixed it. It makes you feel like a lady. I also do a lot of walking - I find it's the best thing for my body, and for women in general, because when you run too much or do things too aggressively, it can really wreak havoc with your appetite. In New York, I give myself half an hour extra just to walk everywhere. Since I've done that, my body is much better. 

13. I think that, like any art, fashion is about expression. It allows you to express yourself and your identity through what you choose to wear. It also gives you the ability to accentuate your best features and make you feel beautiful. When you wear your favorite dress or your favorite shoes, it can't compare to anything else. And I think that's really cool.

14. (on Lily Aldridge) She is the best. I just love her. The best.

15. Backstage at the Victoria's Secret show is pure madness. Big personalities, big hair and tons of press.

16. (on her favorite beauty products) I love my Clarisonic. It's a game changer for me. I use it religiously! Coconut oil is also amazing for your skin, hair, nails and body. I love Fresh lip balms too, they're wonderful. I love lip balms in general, they're very important! I have 50 in my bag right now! Dry shampoo is also at the top of my list.

17. I guess that you learn from everything you do. And the more you learn, the more you feel comfortable. Confidence will take you anywhere!

18. I think women should be women, or at least that's my perspective. I'm an anti-feminist feminist.

19. If you're sloppy and get dressed quickly, like I do, you should probably buy a structured bag to hold everything together.

20. I think the brand's success comes from embracing the personality of each girl and using that to create a real brand spokesmodel. Customers and fans are able to be a part of the experience with us - watching our careers grow and learning more about us.

21. (on Miranda Kerr) Miranda is so cheeky.

22. A mistake a lot of girls make is that they work out but don't eat enough. If you're not eating enough, all the work outs are doing, it's not going to show.

23. I hope for more opportunities to travel and meet with more people - two things I love about my job.

24. I work out twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed. I'll start with half an hour of running and then some yoga to stretch everything out so everything is warm.

25. You could be doing a million butt lifts, but your butt is not going to get any bigger because there is nothing to build on. Your body needs food to make that happen.

26. In the beginning of my career it was more difficult - to feel comfortable even walking a runway took time and patience. I had terrible stage fright - I've learned over time that being genuine and being able to laugh at yourself is the best way to handle it all.

27. It is really not always about working out. The most important thing is about what you eat. That really changed my perspective.

28. I love the show The League, my Chloe suede studded boots and interior design (I'm a bit obsessed with interior design blogs). I also love the new Arcade Fire album, Reflektor.
