Before the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, models work out harder and watch their diets extra carefully to attain that firm/thin/buff look that’s become the main attraction of the show, even trumping the live musical accompaniment of esteemed artists like Kanye West (‘11) and Justin Bieber (‘12). Diet and fitness tend to comprise the bulk of the questions models have to answer when reporters descend on the show (which tapes this week in New York and airs on CBS next month).

This is Joan at an event in Boston this month, looking like she has…no work to do to get ready for the show, at least in terms of Not Being Fat or Jiggly.

3. Fellow VS Fashion Show model Doutzen Kroes is tweeting about her very complex smoothies.

Whether this is a special pre–VS show taping thing or just a normal everyday complicated supermodel diet thing is unclear.

I’m frankly more interested in her collection of animal tees than GNC haul. (This photo is from October’s Margiela x H&M launch party.)

5. Adriana Lima tweeted about her pre-VS workout to much tabloid fascination a couple weeks ago.

She’s told me before she loves to box.

Adriana also had a baby in September! Here’s a sexy photo of her from April. Her post-baby VS Fashion Show body promises to be a big story at the event. Google proves it.

8. Candice Swanepoel is also boxing as part of her pre-show fitness routine, as evidenced by a complex series of hashtags.

Here’s Candice in Boston in October. Apparently already practicing the fine art of wearing complicated outfits, a skill of paramount importance for any VS Fashion Show model.

Here’s Candice modeling metal wings and sleeves with a cleavage window at last year’s show.
