Cindy Bruna's appearance in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was a ''big deal''.

The 22-year-old model - who was born in Saint-Raphaël, France, - has admitted it was a privilege to model for the lingerie giant in their annual catwalk show in her ''home'' country , which took place on Wednesday (30.11.16) at the Grand Palais in Paris.

Speaking to about the fashion extravaganza, the brunette beauty said: ''Walking the show is a big deal, and to do it in Paris, my home, is just extra special.

''Paris is amazing; we have so many things: theaters, museums, and parks - there's always something to see or do!

''I live close to the Parc Monceau, so I love to have a nap there! Sometimes I go and just walk out, and then have an hour to relax, laying on the lawn.''

The catwalk icon has revealed she ''loves'' to shop in French pharmacies because they stock all of her favourite cosmetic brands.

Speaking about her go-to stores, she said: ''French pharmacies are everything! I love to go and shop; they have all you need for skin care and beauty.

''I have my favourite brands that I stock up on, like La Roche-Posay. It has a cream for the face, which I use, and great shower gel. I also remove my makeup with Bioderma, which is just the best -- every make-up artist uses it.''

And the brunette beauty has revealed she was ''so nervous'' during the casting for the show, because she was desperate to earn her place on the highly-anticipated show.

She said: ''When I did the casting this year, I was so nervous, because [I knew] it was Paris, so I wanted to be there.''
