Get ready with me: Victoria Lee’s morning routine
When it comes to mornings, you'll be happy to know that Victoria's Secret model and new face of David Jones, Victoria Lee, is just like us: "So, I had the best intentions this morning to get up at 6am and go to a work out. I totally ignored my alarm," Lee admitted. "I said to myself, you know what's more important right now? The sleep. So I slept in for another half an hour."
The 27 year-old is about to make her runway debut with David Jones, of which she has just signed on as brand ambassador among Jessica Gomes and Adam Goodes. No stranger to a runway show, Lee has just walked the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai for the first time. If all this sounds a little familiar, you may have heard of a model by the name of Miranda Kerr who eerily ticked off the same modelling milestones some ten years ago.
"Obviously, Miranda is an inspiration, her career is incredible," Lee says of the comparisons people have drawn, labelling the up-and-comer 'the next Miranda Kerr', "[But] I would like to be like the first Victoria Lee, you know. I'd just like to be me; that would be great."
With a half-hour sleep in under her belt; Lee took fifteen minutes aside to clear her head before her DJs debut. "I just wanted to make sure that I was mentally prepared... I use this app called Head Space. I just sat there for a second and I use my Equal Beauty [Moisture Eye Veil] at the same time," said Lee. "So two birds with one stone."
"Then because I didn't get my work out in, I did a quick little phone work out," said Lee. "So 20 squats, 20 squat jumps, some mountain climbers and maybe 20 crunches... I wanted to get my blood pumping."
After a quick shower and a green tea, Lee applies Bobbi Brown Extra Face Oil to her skin. "I get lots of makeup up on my face. So it's important to let that sink into my skin," Lee explains. Then it's coffee and lots of water, before throwing on a Chloé lace mini dress with a pussy bow neck tie and heading out the door.
Victoria Lee walked the David Jones A/W '18 Collections Launch on Wednesday February 7 alongside Jessica Gomes and Jordan Barrett.
