Adriana Lima is a seasoned vet when it comes to taking on the Victoria's Secret runway...or any runway for that matter! So how does she feel about hitting the the stage with younger models, like Kendall Jenner?

E! News caught up with the gorgeous 35-year-old who talked to us exclusively about this year's show and how much she truly enjoys working with the 21-year-old Jenner.

"I have worked with Kendall on runways before when we were in Europe, like Versace and also with Victoria's Secret," Lima dished. "Kendall is very sweet and very nice, and it's always pleasant to work with someone like that."

Kindness aside, Lima said Jenner puts in tons of work to succeed in her career.

"You know, she works as hard as we do, so I give her credit for all the effort," the model added. "And I think she is going to do great because Victoria's Secret is all about personality, and she has her own personality."


Speaking of doing great on the VS runway, Lima also dished about what it's like to be walking it for the 16th time this year.

"[I am] one of the originals, [and yet] I get more and more nervous every year," she revealed. "I am just so happy and excited to be a part of this and be here in Paris...I haven't slept for a week because of all the nerves."

She's even more excited about the 2016 show because it's taking place in the City of Light for the first time. "I get to go international with the show," she said. "I love where it's being held this year, and it's so beautiful. I can't wait to see it all come together with the makeup, costumes and performers!"

However, Lima admitted there are two very important aspects missing from the show this year: Behati Prinsloo and Candice Swanepoel, who both just welcomed babies into the world.

"When I sat down on the plane, I was really missing them, and I was saying to myself, 'We are missing a few angels here,'" she revealed. "We will still have a good time, but I really miss them and to me it's not the same here without them."

Unfortunately, the show must go on, and Lima has been prepping for it since last year.

"I have been working out since the last VS show, so it hasn't stopped," she dished. "I work out non-stop. I do boxing, Dogpound gym and Barry's Boot Camp when I am in New York and L.A."

She also makes sure to travel well, keeping herself healthy and her skin vibrant. "Drink lots of water and bring rose mist and lip balm," she says of the key to traveling.

Now that she's made her way to Paris and is gearing up for the big show, we couldn't help but ask if a special someone will be watching her take on the runway—after all, she has been linked to Ryan Seacrest lately!

"Maybe...I like to keep that information to myself," she responded, coyly.

We'll just have to see when The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airs Dec. 5 on CBS.
