In case you’ve been looking at pictures of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, wondering how it’s possible for Adriana Lima to look sinewy and curvaceous all at once, it’s because she went on a crazypants diet. We called it ridiculous earlier this week, and anchor dude Anderson Cooper echoed that sentiment last night on CNN.
Cooper said of the diet, which as we reported ends with nine days of nothing but water and protein shakes, “I guess just swear off the solid food and water and you’ll look great. You know, if you don’t drop over dead.”
Quite frankly, it is remarkable that she manages to get through the show on so few calories. But to be completely fair, Cooper pointed out that a few of the models went on the record saying that they eat right up until they go onstage — Chanel Iman gained something like 15 pounds before she got on the catwalk. “It’s just like I say, every time a dinner bell rings, an Angel gets its wings,” Cooper said. Indeed.
