The Philadelphia native hit it big on the Spring 2016 runways. But she still harbors one ambition: to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel. If only so she can put her sporty impulses to good use. Here, Julia Fleming shares her obsessive reading habits and go-to workouts.
Your look in three words:
Clean. Simple. Pretty.
Wake up. Brush teeth. Wash face. Go. Never brush my hair.
Never leave the house without:
Food! Snacks. I try and have healthy food. Maybelline Baby Lips and makeup wipes.
Beauty from the inside out:
A lot of it is about what you eat and how you treat your body. People who eat right and exercise almost have a glow. In our industry, there’s a lot of skinny and athletic skinny. To me, there’s huge difference.
I pride myself on being super-athletic. I’ve been playing sports my whole life. I played lacrosse in college. Now I missed it, so I do boxing and a lot of Bar Method. My parents actually own two yoga studios back at my hometown in Philly so I do a lot of yoga too. I want to become an Angel so I can train all the time.
Chicken and vegetables before fashion week. And lots of snacks!
Bumble and bumble thickening spray! Cetaphil. Dior lipstick in red.
Harry Potter! I reread the series 8 times.
My nail salon. I love getting a back massage there.
Fragrance of choice:
I’m not a fragrance girl usually, but I am a Narciso girl. I opened the show!
Best advice from mom:
Stay grounded. Always ask people about themselves when they ask you about modeling. It’s nice to know that everyone wants me to stay the same.
Best advice from the pros:
My agents gave me the lowdown on fashion week the night before! I didn’t know who people were or know to impress, so I was just myself.
