In an exclusive interview with Preview, she reveals how she ticked a VS shoot off her bucket list and more:

Hi Kelsey! Can you tell us how this all happened? How did Victoria's Secret approach you for this project?

"Well, it all happened through my agency here in New York, Supreme Management. I casted for Victoria’s Secret twice before they booked me for the job. The first was a regular casting—they took polaroids of me in lingerie. Then I got a callback the day after. For the callback, they asked me to go on set with Victoria’s Secret and do like a trial shoot with their whole team."

You mentioned on Twitter how it's been a dream of yours to work with VS. How did you feel when you bagged the project?

"I couldn’t believe it. I still can’t believe it. I’ve been modeling for almost six years now and this has been a goal of mine from the start. The competition is so tough here in New York; I could only dream of working with VS."

How did you prepare for the shoot? Any significant changes in your fitness routine and your diet?

"I have been working out a lot prior to the shoot. I try to go to the gym almost every day. I love going to pilates, and [seeing] my personal trainer at my gym, The Dogpound. When I found out I was confirmed for the job, I immediately cut out sweets. I have a sweet tooth, so it was definitely tough. I just kept a healthy, well-balanced diet."

Can you give us a bit of info on the project?

"It’s going to come out soon—will share it will all of you then!"

Can we expect Kelsey Merritt to walk a Victoria's Secret fashion show in the future?
