Doutzen Kroes On Why Being An Angel Is Just As Awesome As You Think

60S_280x335
Okay, so we’re not ones for taking sides, but we do have to say that when it comes to Dutch model Doutzen Kroes — she steals our vote as one of the top knockouts in the biz. Don’t get us wrong, we’re big fans of the whole Victoria's Secret clan, but there is something about Doutzen that we definitely dig. So, when VS held its 7th annual “What Is Sexy?” event and Doutzen hosted — we were over the moon. The “What Is Sexy?” list highlights talent across all spectrums, from sexiest sense of humor (Emma Stone) to sexiest tweeter (Kristen Bell).
And that’s not all. Victoria’s Secret has released a brand-spankin’-new bra, aptly called the Knockout, to coincide with the event. We caught up with the flaxen-haired beauty, who if you ask us, is a gleaming example of the initiative, to talk about her fave L.A. workout spots, traveling, and staying sexy.
What do you think is sexy for L.A. ladies this summer? Any trends you love for West Coast gals vs. the East?
"I love to wear really flowy dresses when I am in L.A., while in NYC I tend to wear a lot of black."
You were able to regain your flat tummy so quickly after pregnancy. Any words of advice for mommies-to-be?
"Breast feeding really worked for me. I also think working out will definitely help. Plus, it gives you a little time to yourself. My eating habits are pretty healthy, too."
What’s your favorite outdoor activity, and what's the ideal L.A. spot for it?
"I love working out hard at Equinox. Plus, whenever I'm in town, I go for a good hike."
How do you manage to keep your hair so healthy?
"I use a hair mask every so often and coconut oil on my ends."
How would you compare the new Knockout bra to other brassieres?
"I love that it is wireless and so comfortable, but it still gives you the best lift"
What do you love most about being a Victoria’s Secret Angel?
"We travel to the most beautiful locations in the world, stay in gorgeous hotels, visit stunning beaches, and work with the best hair stylists, makeup artists, and photographers in the world."
