Sports Illustrated Model Kelly Rohrbach

There are a number of reasons we love Sports Illustrated’s Rookie of the Year model Kelly Rohrbach, and a few have to do with the fact that she loves Milanos, Peanut M&Ms and Cape Cod Chips. We thought we’d start this Monday with our favorite thing: Balance. That nice mix between splurge and moderation that makes us all feel beautiful inside and out; Rohrbach knows how to do it perfectly. Get to know Kelly…

From start to finish, what would be your ideal food day?

Oatmeal in the morning, followed by a Honeydrop lemon cayenne juice every morning to jump-start my system. The spice and lemon starts my day right! I’d have Avocado on toast for lunch and quinoa and chicken for dinner.

How do you practice beauty from the inside out?

I drink lots of water and get a lot of sleep. I make sure to sweat every day and eat as cleanly as possible.

Foods and drinks that make you glow…

Water and those Honeydrop juices!

What are your morning and nightly beauty routines?

I’m a minimalist – so in the morning, I use tinted moisturizer and some Charlotte Tilbury mascara. At night, I wash my face with Chantecaille face wash. If my face is dry, I put coconut oil on it.

Foods and drinks bad for your skin…

Alcohol and dairy.

72-hour prep before a big photo-shoot…

Lots of sleep, lots of water, and no dairy or wheat.

Three tips to get bikini ready fast…

Self-tanner, lotion or body oil, and your smile.

Biggest first date ‘faux pas’…

Snacks you cannot live without…

Milano cookies

Sant Ambroeus in the West Village in New York, M Café in Los Angeles and Ottolenghi in London.
