Stylish: What’s your hair removal strategy before the show?
Sampaio: I lasered all of my body a few years ago! Best decision I ever made.
Stylish: Do you self-tan or body bronze before the show?
Sampaio: It depends if I’ve been in the sun or not. I’m naturally tanned so last year I didn’t need one… This year I’m still debating.
Stylish: Do you switch up your diet?
Sampaio: I love pizza, bread and pasta, so I cut down on that and eat a lot of chicken, fish, fruit and veggies. Plus, I’ll work out four to five days a week.
Stylish: How do you get your hair ready?
Sampaio: I just keep doing what I do, I really don’t change my routine at all before the show! Just shampoo, moisturizer, and I’ll put some Morrocanoil treatment before drying.
Stylish: Which show is this for you?
Tookes: This will be my sixth. I’m so excited about the show being in Shanghai. I can’t wait to explore the city and learn more about their foods and culture.
Stylish: How will you stay fresh while traveling to Shanghai?
Tookes: I’ll take sheet masks for skin hydration on the long flight and brightening ones for my arrival.
Stylish: What are your smooth skin tricks?
Tookes: I use a lot of body oils and also do Coolaser treatments at Epione in Beverly Hills for any pigmentation.
Stylish: Any body secrets?
Tookes: I definitely like to add a little bonze body shimmer before hitting the runway
Stylish: How many shows have you walked in before this year?
Ambrosio: This is my 17th show!
Stylish: Do you self tan or body bronze before the show?
Ambrosio: I live in California so I usually don’t spray tan before the show as I spend a lot of time outdoors with my friends and family so I get that sun kissed glow.
Stylish: How do you prep your hair leading up to the show? Do you do any hair masks or get deep treatments?
Ambrosio: I’ve been using Marajo products daily and that’s what keeps my hair shiny and healthy for the runway.
Stylish: What’s your biggest indulgence after the show?
Ambrosio: We always have a pizza party and it is so much fun!
Stylish: You’re wearing the Fantasy Bra! When did you find out?
Ribiero: They usually mold to the model, but they told me at the fitting, so it was a total surprise. I cried so much!
Stylish: And you’ve tried the bra on? Worn it?
Ribiero: Oh, I spent the whole day with those babies on my chest.
Stylish: How do you tone up pre-runway?
Ribiero: Two months leading up to the show I mix it up: Pilates, boxing, lifting — something every day.
Stylish: Does your diet plan change?
Ribiero: I don’t really change my diet. I do eat a lot of protein because it’s good health of muscles. That’s all I’ll eat every single day before the show.
Stylish: How many shows have you walked?
Skriver: I’ve walked four shows so far!
Stylish: How do you make sure your skin is smooth and even?
Skriver: I’m a big fan of dry-brushing. I also like to get a little spray tan backstage. It helps to accentuate muscle definition.
Stylish: Do you pack any pre-show emergency treatments?
Skriver: Not really. I like the classic ice to depuff and toothpaste for zits.
Stylish: What’s your hair removal strategy leading up to the show? Laser? Shaving? Waxing?
Skriver: We wear close to nothing so it’s a solid combination of all! Haha.
