Victoria’s Secret angel Taylor Hill has a low-key Valentine’s Day planned this year. “I’m going to keep it pretty casual with some great NY pizza and a movie,” she says.
Casual it may be, the supermodel will obviously still look fab (naturally). “I’ll probably go for a topknot,” she says when asked how she will style her hair for the occasion. “It’s simple but still really cute and looks sophisticated without trying.” Below, Hill tells us her beauty look and lingerie picks for V-Day, and reveals what she does to feel her sexiest before a date–even if she does just find herself at the back of a movie theatre, ‘za in hand.
Are you hoping to receive anything special this year?
“I don’t really like getting material gifts from people! I would much rather receive a hand-written note or flowers.”
Are you buying a gift for your BF?
“I think a nice cologne or a stylish tie.”
Any tips for feeling sexy before a date?
“Pick an outfit you feel confident in and make yourself feel glam. I like to take my time getting ready so I’m not rushed or nervous. I also love listening to music beforehand, anything by Rihanna or Beyoncé puts me in such a good mood.”
How are you going to do your makeup?
“I keep my look pretty simple, but will probably add a cat eye for a bit of drama. I usually like to keep my look natural and wear minimal makeup, so I can let my skin breathe a bit. I’m definitely going to wear my Tease fragrance too, because it’s so warm and sexy and makes me feel confident.”
Lipstick or no lipstick on V-day?
“I say no lipstick, because touching up throughout the night can be hard.”
Do you have any outfit ideas yet?
“I always feel sexy in bodysuits or teddies. Lately I think it’s really sexy and cool to wear lingerie as outerwear. I’ll wear something like the new Very Sexy Cross Back Lace Plunge Teddy tucked into black jeans with a blazer and feel really chic.”

“I love wearing pink lingerie, because it makes me feel super flirty, without being too bold and in your face.”
For the girls celebrating Galentine’s Day this year–what would you suggest to wear for a night on the town with your best friends?
“Spending Valentine’s Day with your girls can be so much fun! It’s all about appreciating the people in your life and your friends are always there for you, so make sure you make them feel special too! I’ll usually wear black jeans with a crop top or t-shirt and probably a heeled bootie to dress it up a bit.”
