An  glow without mistake shines from the Brazilian model Caroline Trentini, whom we noticeted backstage today at Michael Kors Collection. Sure, you might say it is beacuse of the e desert-inspired bronzer put on her cheeks by makeup artist Dick Page, or her corn-silk highlights who belong to the colorist Christopher-John, or the five days she and her husband recently spent on the secluded island of Fernando de Noronha. But that inside-and-out beauty speaks to a bigger way  she’s set for herself. “I was never the crazy, partying, smoking kind of girl,” she said, pointing out to the  the bottle of Juice Press in her hand. “I’m glad it’s a trend, where people are getting healthy and working out and Snapchatting about it.”


As a mother of a 2-year-old son (“Look! He’s so cute,” she said, flashing a photo of a cherubic redhead on her iPhone), she thinks  a lot of thought into what she makes at home —though she isn’t above the usual ingredients. “I’m from the south of Brazil, so I eat meat. Once a week I like a good steak!”


It’s fuel for the fire: After a time where she started with the exercises like speed dating—“a little this, a little Pilates, a little that”—she has since become a fitness monogamist. “I try to work out three times a week with my trainer in Brazil, and we do a functional fight. It’s a mix between kickboxing and boxing—things that work for your body,” she explained of the hard-working, one-on-one sparring sessions. “After I had the baby, I fell in love with the workout. I don’t use weights; I don’t run. Just that.” There’s a usual common sense in her  smart thoughts; after all, the best workout is the one that keeps your interest, that you actually want to practice. And as evidenced by her Kors look today—a floor-sweeping black shirtdress with peekaboo lace panels presenting her sculpted collarbones and thighs—the hard work is really worth it.
