“I think every girl has worked really hard and I think you can see that even just through our Instagrams. We show all the exercise we are doing – and the mental health, too. Exercise is great for your mental health!” she said.

“The show is about being really comfortable in your body and it’s about embracing your body. All the hard work we have been doing over months comes to a point where you go, ‘Yes, this is it. This is what I have been working so hard for!’ I think that’s mainly what it is about: It’s about hard work!”

Asked what she wants the world to take from the fashion show, which airs Dec. 2, Maxwell said, “The message I want to send out is that women are sexy. We have girls from all over the world in the show – it’s just a very sexy and confident role and situation you are lucky to be in. I personally really enjoy it and really enjoy the moment of the runway show. I think it’s all about feeling good AND looking amazing.”
