‘Don’t try to make it look as though I starve myself’: Victoria’s Secret model’s scathing response to reporter’s ‘stupid’ question about what she would eat after the show.

Victoria’s Secret model Magdalena Frackowiak hit back at a reporter for insinuating that she starved herself before the brand’s annual fashion show – while scolding him for not asking smarter questions. The 31-year-old Polish beauty was getting her make-up done backstage on Tuesday when someone from TMZ asked her what she was was ‘most excited’ about eating after the show, but Magdalena refused to even entertain the question.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 51, attended the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in NYC on Tuesday, Nov. 10, to support her daughter Gigi Hadid. “This didn’t just fall into her lap,” Foster said. “She missed it twice. The whole heavenly vibe is enhanced by the fact that 15 selected supermodels are known as ‘Angels,’ and actually wear fluffy wings as they glide down the runway in their smalls and killer heels.

When the video was shared on TMZ, the site wrote that Magdalena reacted the way she did because she was probably ‘hangry’ – a word that means you are angry because you are hungry. I always take care of myself during the years, so it is sometimes like a week before the show that maybe I tend to exercise a little bit more,’ she said. That’s part of the game.” Foster recalled the moment that her daughter broke the exciting news that she had landed the gig, saying, “She called me the minute she walked out, from the car, and it was probably one of the highlights of a mother’s life, obviously.”

At the start of the TMZ clip, Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo can be standing on a table and posing for photographers in her underwear, and the cameraman takes the opportunity to zoom in on her scantily clad derriere. This year, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner made their debut in the New York show, alongside established VS Angels, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge and Candice Swanepoel.

And while 24-year-old Shanina Shaik says Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, Paulina Hoarau appears to be a little shocked by the question before she says she will probably eat pizza. We marvelled at the Fantasy Bra worn by Lily Aldridge, which featured 6,500 gems boasting 1,364 carats, such as diamonds, blue topaz, yellow sapphires and pink quartz, which is worth a cool $2 million.

Before she debuted this year’s $2 million Fireworks Fantasy Bra, Lily Aldridge shared her diet and fitness routine, explaining that she is simply ‘eating healthy’. ‘Lots of roast chicken and vegetables, eating clean… We flicked through the gorgeous images online while idly munching on our lunch, and reflected that most of us would look like an overstuffed sausage in the rhinestone-encrusted body stockings sported by the Angels and fellow models. Most women who are bit older and wiser will understand that these women look absolutely amazing, but even Adriana Lima doesn’t look like that every day.

Fellow Angel Jac Jagaciak, 21, agreed, noting that during a trip to Italy, where the girls filmed a commercial for the brand, they all enjoyed a lot of pizza and pasta. Almost every former model I have ever met has spoken of the pressures and and self-loathing they indulged in to meet the high physical standards that were required of them. Elsa added that she even dedicated an entire day to visiting the country’s incredible restaurants just so she could try every dish possible during her time there. However, for our young and impressionable girls, the ones who look up to 20-year-old Kendall and Gigi as role models, how do we tell them long locks and legs for days shouldn’t be your main life goal? And that rather than focusing on the external, life would run a lot more smoothly if they concentrated on improving what goes on inside their heads instead.

I regularly meet the most talented, capable and impressive women who have achieved great things, but are simply fixated e over aspects of their physical appearance. After all, it was a fortuitous roll of the genetic dice that gave Kendall Jenner her slender bum and not her sister Kim’s, when it came to being chosen as an underwear model last night.

Wouldn’t it be fabulous if women of all ages took their cues from the likes of Meryl, and stopped obsessing about physical appearance, which most of the time is out of our control anyway?
