With the 2012 Olympics just around the corner, it seems the whole world has gone sporting mad. Now even Victoria’s Secret are getting in on the action and the company launches VSX Sexy Sport Collection. The brand’s demure promise: “Your sexiest butt ever.”
And VS’ angels Candice Swanepoel and Erin Heatherton show off new workout gear in the new campaign for ‘Very Sexy’ Spring-Summer 2012. Featuring grey crop tops, bras and leggings with a yellow and blue trim, the clothes are designed for working out in style.
But unfortunately for most people, purchases do not come with a Victoria’s Secret body guarantee – that only comes with hard work. Ms Heatherton, who is currently dating actor Leonardo Di Caprio, recently revealed she works out four times a week to stay in shape.
“Yes, I like to work out approximately four times per week,”Â the 23-year-old model told Shape magazine. “We generally try to schedule an appropriate workout for future events. I really try to do a full-body workout rather than focusing on a specific part of my body. I utilize a variety of exercises to maximize my heart rate to burn calories.”
When it comes to diet, she prefers a balanced diet – and forgoes the junk. “I try to resist temptation as often as possible. I remind myself that end result of giving into temptations is often not worth the expense,” Erin said. “I try to eat as healthy as possible. This includes eating a balanced diet of foods such as granola, vegetables, protein, nuts.”
Using a pink bra as a prop, model Candice Swanepoel on Thursday, March 22, attended the Victoriaâ€™s Secret ‘Very Sexy Tour Stop’ at the North Park Mall in Dallas, Texas. When she was asked about the collection, Candice said: â€œI love that Victoriaâ€™s Secret has really put a lot of time into changing the workout wear and developing it.”
“They take the bra technology and put it into the workout wear â€“ so you do feel sexy in it, but you feel comfortable and supported. Itâ€™s everything a woman wants in one,” she added. “The entire VSX collection is made with this Body-Wick technology, and it removes moisture so you never feel really sweaty – it feels like your second skin,” adds Erin Heatherton. “It’s what I live by. I always work out in VSX.”
South African Candice, 23, has had to fend off rumours that she suffers from an eating disorder after getting scarily skinny last year. She explained the weight loss as the result of a hectic work schedule, saying “I’ve been travelling around like crazy. I get skinnier if I’m very busy…I am healthy and happy.”
Alessandra Ambrosio, 30, is also one of the ‘angels’ of the campaign, but she’s been otherwise occupied getting kinky with Ashton Kutcher in Colcci’s new photoshoot which was shot in Sao Paulo. She’s also massively pregnant with her second child by fiance Jamie Mazur, so, she isn’t as up for dancing around in her pants as usual.
