Model Erin Heatherton

We never envisioned ourselves having a gorgeous Brigitte Bardot doppelgänger on The New Potato, but sometimes things just work out. Former Victoria’s Secret Angel Erin Heatherton took time out of her day to pose in a swoon-worthy leopard print Carven dress, and tell us all her beauty, workout and food secrets. The good news? She splurges on chocolate and saunas pre-shoot…
