How do Angels prepare themselves for the sexiest night of the year? Alessandra Ambrosio and Jasmine Tookes, who will walk in the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airing on CBS December 5, have very different plans before their big Parisian night.

Ambrosio, who has walked the show for 17 consecutive years, knows that discipline is a major key when it comes to modeling that state-of-the-art lingerie.

“Right now, there’s one month to go before the Victoria’s Secret show, and I started working out with Tracy Anderson about a month ago, and I really love it,” the Ale by Alessandra designer, 35, told The Coveteur. “There’s a lot of dance moves, a lot of lifting ankle weights, working out the butt, and a lot of cardio, and I love it. I’m so into her, I go to the studio and sometimes I spend an hour and a half to two hours there.”

Although her workouts are intense, the mom of two insists that she has fun while busting a sweat. “It’s so good because they put the music on really loud. I used to hate doing cardio, and this is the first time I’m actually loving it,” she continued. “You just feel like you’re in the club dancing, pretty much, but I don’t have the energy to go to clubs and dance all night, so it’s nice to sweat and be healthy but do something that I love.”

It’s not all work and no play for Ambrosio, though. “At Sweet Lady Jane, I love an afternoon tea; I love drinking green tea and having a piece of cake,” she said. “Not too near the Victoria’s Secret show, but after the show, from December to the holidays.”  

But when it comes to indulging, there’s no time like the present for Tookes, who is taking her fifth walk down the runway. “I love food so much, I can’t give it up,” Tookes, 25, told W Magazine. “I eat the same thing now as I will after the show and that’s pepperoni pizza, that’s my number one.”

Thankfully, any evidence of gluttony wasn’t visible when she wore the $3 million Bright Night Fantasy Bra in October. She’ll wear the same garment, which took 700 hours to make, at the show. But timing doesn’t seem to be an issue when it comes to throwing down. Tookes, who also revealed that she’ll enjoy a helping of steak frites at Paris’ Le Relais de l’Entrecote, isn’t concerned about the show falling a few days after Thanksgiving.

“No, my diet will not affect my Thanksgiving, she notes. “I am going to eat so much food, and I can’t wait.”
