After she made an obligatory pit stop at Disney World and played a few holes of golf (when in Florida!), we chatted up the supermodel about her trip, her Victoria's Secret beginnings, and one Blake Lively.
POPSUGAR: What did you like most about Orlando?
Lindsay Ellingson: This is my first time here! I went straight from the airport to Epcot Center, and I loved going "around the world" to see all the different countries. Also, the fans have been so nice and welcoming!
PS: And if you could travel anywhere, where would you go — and what would you bring with you?
LE: I would go to Hawaii because I've never been there! I'd bring a surfboard, a Victoria's Secret bikini, and my dog Carly.
PS: You've been walking the runways since the Spring 2005 shows, and you've been an Angel for five years already. When do you think you first earned your wings?
LE: When I was doing the Victoria's Secret Gorgeous Push-up Bra campaign. It was my first solo campaign, and it really hit me, like I had finally made it. It was such an honor and surreal at the same time.
PS: You've done so many shoots, but what's the most memorable casting call you've ever been on?
LE: I did one for the Dior Couture show, and I had to dance in ballet pointe shoes! I had never done it before, and I trained to dance pointe down the runway.
PS: Impressive! Aside from ballet slippers, what's your most prized fashion purchase yet?
LE: My favorite of all time would probably be my thigh-high Margiela leather boots.
PS: And your go-to style icon?
LE: I think Blake Lively has great style.
PS: You clearly have found great success — so we don't want you to quit anytime soon. But, we're curious: what would you do if you weren't modeling?
LE: I was studying biology in college, so if I wasn't a model, I'd like to be doing cancer research.
