On Being a Victoria's Secret Angel: "It comes with a different kind of responsibility. It's not just about posing for shoots. People know your name and your personality."
Personal Style: "It depends on what side of the bed I wake up on. Sometimes I like being hippie or rock-and-roll or girly. I tend to wear a lot of jeans and white T-shirts--I buy really simple clothes but splurge on handbags, shoes, and jewelry."
