Victoria's Secret model, Kelly Gale was fresh off the plane from Shanghai when we sat down to chat with her at the Swarovski S/S '18 Rainbow Paradise collection launch in Sydney. It's hard to believe that at only 22 years old, the Aussie model has now walked the glittery Victoria's Secret runway four times. "It's amazing, I can't even explain it; the adrenaline and everything feels so good," she gushes of the runway she walked on less than a week prior. Gale travelled to Shanghai with fellow Aussie model, Victoria Lee, taking the Victoria's Secret newcomer under her wing (so to speak). Lee has since been named as the as the face of David Jones A/W '18.

"I've been indulging all week since the show," Gale admits. And so she should, it's a far cry from the lifestyle she leads every other week of the year; training like a Victoria's Secret Angel is no easy feat. "I live a very healthy lifestyle all year round," she explains. "I do lots of meditation and make sure I work hard," and by working hard, she means 4:00am pre-runway ab sessions and all things resistance bands.

"I love to cook," says Gale. "Leading up to the show I restricted my carbs and increased my proteins; I ate a lot of fish, turkey, chicken breast and egg whites and any vegetables that I want to eat, I eat." After the show however, the menu looked slightly different. "My boyfriend took me to lunch the day after the show," Gale explains while laughing. "We went to this amazing Chinese restaurant in Shanghai and we basically ordered everything on the menu. I ate everything!"

In town with Swarovski, Gale has dusted off the glitz and glitter, bar a pair of rose gold Swarovski earrings, her "favourite piece" from the Rainbow Paradise collection.
