WATCH: Kendall Jenner Busts a Move in Her First Major Campaign With Givenchy

As it turns out, Kendall Jenner isn’t just another beautiful face; she also has some killer dance moves!

Hot off the release of her first major campaign, the reality star-turned-model is hopping in front of the camera once again, this time to bust a few moves in Givenchy’s Fall/Winter 2014 campaign video.  Joined by runway-favorites and fellow campaign beauties Julia Nobis, Mariacarla Boscono and Jamie Bochert, Kendall stars in the new 15-second flick in which she can be seen getting down to tribal-inspired beats by The Martinez Brothers and wearing the same snakeskin pleated gown she wore in the Givenchy show back in February.  We should also note there is a decent amount of hair-whipping and even a male model who ends up shirtless by the end of the clip (yippee!).

Watch the video above and head here for more of our all-time favorite dance-heavy model campaign videos!

We Tried Brooklyn Body Burn’s Model-Approved Workout, Here’s What You Need to Know…

A healthy diet is an important key to staying in shape; but if you still have a couple more pounds to lose before you’re satisfied with maintaining your shape, avoiding sweets is only half the battle.  Fact of the matter is, Fourth of July weekend (aka the biggest beach party weekend of the year) is just around the corner and for those of us who have slacked on our bikini-ready workout a bit over the last few months, that means it’s time to buckle down and kick things into high gear.  That’s where celebrity fitness trainer Tracy Carlinsky of Brooklyn Body Burn comes in.

If you haven’t heard of BBB then take notes!  Since opening its doors in Williamsburg in 2013, BBB has taken a unique approach to high-intensity fitness training, providing a full-body workout, fitness support and most importantly, solid results to clients that include Victoria’s Secret models Martha Hunt and Dorothea Barth Jorgensen among others.  Now, lets face it, nobody knows how to get in tip-top bikini shape quite like a VS Angel, so when we were invited to check out the studio and participate in one of its model-approved conditioning classes, you better believe we jumped at the chance!

First, let us start by saying: prepare to sweat…a lot! We’ve tried quite a few workout classes in our day, so you can trust us when we say that this was no ordinary workout.  For starters, the entire 50 minute class takes place on what the instructors call a MegaFormer machine, which looks a lot like your basic Pilates reformer, except this one comes equipped with springs and pulleys that offer strength, cardio and balance training for your upper and lower body— in other words: it whips you into shape!  Based on the Lagree Fitness Method (see more on that in the interview below), the basis of the class is to incorporate the low-impact, muscle-toning principles of Pilates with high-intensity cardio elements for a total-body workout that encourages maximum exertion with zero periods of rest in order to promote effective muscle fatigue.  Despite the fact that there wasn’t a treadmill in sight, we could immediately feel the effects of the cardio aspect of the workout, along with the next day’s soreness, guaranteeing that we had put our muscles work.  But hey, no pain no gain, right?

On top of experiencing the Brooklyn Body Burn routine first-hand, we also had a chance to sit down with Tracey to learn more about the model-approved program and some of her best-kept fitness secrets.  Check out our interview with the master trainer below to get the full fitness scoop!
