We caught up with the face of Michael Kors’ new campaign for his first travel-inspired fragrance, Wonderlust. Read on for the Victoria’s Secret Angel’s best tips for jet setting in style.

I travel…

“Every week. I travel all the time for work. And when I’m not working, I love planning vacations and traveling the world and bringing my daughter with me, and teaching her different cultures and seeing different places around the world. It’s just a part of who I am—I love to travel.”

I never travel without…

“Really comfortable scarves, because I like to get cozy on the plane since they can get so cold. And then when you land, if you’re in an exotic or tropical place, you can use them as sarongs. I like to travel as compact as possible and really think about what I’m packing, because I like to carry-on most of the time, so scarves are great to use as a two-for-one.

"I always bring my iPad with me and stock up on as many movies, music, and TV shows possible. I just watched The Night Manager, which was fabulous—I couldn’t stop watching it on my flight. And I’m reading a great book right now called E-Squared.

"I just bought a new Tumi carry-on and it is so amazing. I actually YouTubed it beforehand, because I research everything I buy, especially for travel. This woman had a thousand things on her bed and she rolled it all up and put it in her little Tumi suitcase and I was like, 'I’m sold.' And I got it, and I can literally fit so much—it’s a game changer.”

Shooting the Wonderlust campaign was…

“So incredible. It was in Antigua with Mario Testino, and Michael [Kors] was there. We just had the best time—it was so much fun, and so magical. We were all on a yacht and it was just very Michael Kors—very glamorous.”

My favorite moment from the shoot was…

“We were on the yacht, and all of a sudden hundreds of white butterflies just surrounded us—they came into the boat, and they were circling us…it was the most magical things I’ve ever seen in my entire life. You can kind of see it in the behind the scenes. It was spectacular.”

My travel beauty essentials are…

“Those little water bottle sprays—whether it’s rosewater or one of those Evian misters; they’re really great for when you’re on the airplane. And a good face mask, and a great lip balm. I always travel with Epsom salts because when I get somewhere after being on a plane for a long time, I can take a nice Epsom salt bath. I think fragrance is so important. Having one in your purse for when you get off a long journey—it’s something you can do to feel a little bit more glamorous, a little bit more alive. When you get off an airplane you don’t always feel your best, and that’s something that makes you feel good instantly.”

My tips for looking (and feeling) fresh after a long flight are…

“I do masks in-flight. I always have those little Klorane under-eye patches that I just think are so fabulous, and usually an hour before landing I’ll put them on and apologize to the stewardesses for scaring them when they see me. Those are really, really good ones—they work, they’re just amazing. I always have some in my purse or wallet or somewhere. And I always do a little touch up when we’re landing—it’s a great way to pass time as you’re landing since you have to turn off all of your electronics. And then those little things, like a spritz of perfume to feel a bit fresher when you land.”

My go-to travel look is…

“Either a low-bun or easy, loose waves. And I’m all about mascara, highlighter, bronze skin, and a natural lip.”

The best trip I’ve taken this year was…

“Greece with Michael Kors—it was pretty spectacular. It was such an amazing group of people that we had there, and we had so much fun—it was just a magical trip. We stayed at the Amanzoe, which was spectacular.”

To stay fit on-the-go, I…

“Place a bath mat down and do Ballet Beautiful or pilates or yoga. I’m very blessed to have my trainer who works out with me via Facetime, but once you get your routine down you can do it in your hotel room. I’ve used water bottles from hotel rooms as weights for my arms and do little lifts. When we were in Greece promoting Wonderlust, I’d go swimming every day. If working out is a part of your lifestyle, you just kind of make it work—whatever you can do.”

Traveling with a young child is…

“All about being prepared. I always have treats and games for Dixie [Aldridge’s daughter]. I’ll download a new educational app for the plane…I just try to keep her as occupied as possible and have as many things in my luggage that I can entertain her with.”

Whenever I go on a beach vacation, I…

“Pack a different bikini for each day. Because when you’re at the beach, that’s all you wear, so it’s kind of your look for the day. I love just a triangle top and a string bottom. I think it’s classic and you can’t go wrong.”

The trip I’m most excited for this year is…

“My daughter and I are both bargaining with my husband [Kings of Leon singer Caleb Followill] about Disney World, so hopefully we’ll be going there!”
