We’re not sure about you guys, but Memorial Day weekend totally snuck up on us this year. Seriously,the kickoff weekend of the summer is almost here and you know what that means—the beginning of weekend getaways, summer solstice shopping and reading breaks on the beach! Luckily, with a little help from our supermodel friends, Adriana Lima, Behati Prinsloo and Lily Aldridge at last week’s celebration of “What Is Sexy?” event we’re ready to help get your summer off to a solid start. We’ve covered it all — from summer reading lists to top shopping destinations and must have travel accessories, these beauts aren’t leaving anything out in this week’s Model Confidential! Get the full story and all of the juicy details in our interviews with the three Angels after the jump:
M: Since you travel a lot, what is one of your favorite shopping destinations?
Adriana: I think everywhere I visit, you can find something interesting. It’s either about the place’s culture or what would be fun for my children.
Behati: I like Mexico because there are a lot of different things that you can’t just buy anywhere. I also like St. Barth’s, but the shops that are there are also in New York. Or Africa, that’s another good one!
Lily: I love going to London for shopping. I love Suffrages, Harvey Nichols and Topshop. I go crazy in all of them!
M: When you’re traveling, what is your must have travel accessory?
Adriana: I always have my iPod!
Behati: A scarf and rose water spray. I always have this one scarf in case it’s cold on the plane or to use on the beach.
Lily: I love a scarf—it’s great! Because I travel to so many different locations, I can be somewhere like England where it’s cold or on an airplane and use it as a blanket. Then I get to the beach and use it as a sarong—it’s the best accessory!
M: What’s on your summer beach reading list?
Adriana: The Zahir by Paolo Coehlo.
Behati: I like National Geographic—it’s one of my favorite magazines. I also like all the surfer magazines because they make me think about summer, surf and holidays (us too!)
Lily: I’m reading Game of Thrones right now. I’m super addicted to it and obsessed. I’m on book five, and I’m like- he needs to make book six soon because I’m almost done!
M: If you weren’t a model, what would you be doing and why?
Adriana: I would be a pediatrician because I love helping people and especially children.
Behati: I wanted to be a marine biologist when I was younger. If I wasn’t here at this moment, I would probably be in South Africa studying something or doing something over there.
Lily: When I was younger I thought I’d be in sports or music, but now, I’m very interested in doing fashion-y things- like I the Velvet collection I did. I absolutely loved doing that! I also love beauty, so maybe something like that in the future.
