Barbara Palvin considers fashion her job, not a personal interest.

The Victoria’s Secret Angel and Sports Illustrated model was discovered in Budapest at the age of 13, and four years later, she made her Milan Fashion Week debut for Prada.

She’s since walked for the likes of Louis Vuitton, Vivienne Westwood, and Chanel, and has landed high-profile campaigns for H&M, Armani Exchange and L’Oreal Paris.

However, the 25-year-old considers fashion her job, not a personal interest, and told Fashionista she would rather wear clothes from the closet of her boyfriend, actor Dylan Sprouse.

“I’ve definitely learned a few things through 13 years of work, but fashion still doesn’t really excite me,” she candidly shared. “Sometimes when Dylan gets some stuff, I take it.”

She also revealed she is bored by shopping, and because she tries on so many clothes during photoshoots, she thinks of buying clothes as a chore.

“When I go shopping, I know what I need and I’ll just go into one or two stores. When I’m shopping, I feel like I’m working. I prefer to not even try things on. I’m just like, ‘that should look good’ and I’ll take it,” Barbara stated.

The Hungarian beauty lives in Brooklyn, New York, with former child star Dylan, and prefers simple styles and comfortable clothing.

“It doesn’t matter the brand. If it feels right on my body, I’ll take it. I usually go for something comfortable, casual but still sexy. The more simple it is, the sexier it looks,” she explained.

Despite walking for high-fashion houses on catwalks around the world, Palvin feels like an “outsider” in upscale luxury stores.

“New York is closer to my style than Paris. Paris can be too chic for me. New York has a little edginess, but still can be classy. I do love Chinatown and Brooklyn, like little stores. I don’t like to go to the rich area. I can’t do that. I feel like an outsider there,” she added.

“Thank you for believing in me,” she added. “There were times where I let my own thoughts hold me back and it was a hard climb away from those but my family, my team… and everyone at VS they were always there to support me and uplift me. I am proud to represent Hungary, and most importantly, all of you in this new chapter of my life! Thank you all so much again.”

Her boyfriend, actor Dylan Sprouse, was among the first people to congratulate Barbara on social media, writing: “The missus has a big announcement, officially a VS angel! Proud of all the work you’ve done leading up to this and here’s to more years of success and a little less Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.”

Palvin, who boasts 1.9 million followers on Instagram, joins the ranks of supermodels like Candice Swanepoel, Behati Prinsloo, and Karlie Kloss.

She replaces Adriana Lima, who walked her last Victoria’s Secret runway in November, 2018, after 20 years with the brand.

The twin actors, who starred on the series The Suite Life of Zack and Cody growing up, are showcasing the label’s latest collection, which is set to debut in the spring (19).

In an interview with The Cut, Dylan revealed collaborating with his brother was easy as the former child stars are “pretty synced up by now”, creatively.

“I’ve been watching Cole do photography since he was really discovering his style, so I was amazed after all this time to discover that he’s very professional and put together on a shoot,” he said.

Cole has previously put his photo skills to use by shooting editorials for Elle and Vogue.

The Sprouse boys have been busy of late – Cole just completed production on the film Five Feet Apart, while Dylan has been busy running his beverage company the All-Wise Meadery in New York after opening the establishment last year (18).

The two have also been making headlines for their romances – Cole has been dating his Riverdale co-star Lili Reinhart, while Dylan has coupled up with model Barbara Palvin.

Dylan Sprouse dropped 30 pounds and learned to speak Mandarin for his latest film.

His next project is China-produced movie Turandot, directed by Xiaolong Zheng.

Deadline announced his casting on Tuesday (29May18), with Dylan adding some more details to his 4.5 million Twitter followers.

“Proud to announce my participation in the huge Chinese fantasy romance movie, Turandot as Prince Calaf! Between losing 30lbs from combat training and speaking exclusively mandarin, this is a huge leap for me, read more here,” he wrote with a link to Deadline’s story.

The 25-year-old plays Calaf, a character who risks his life in an attempt to free Princess Turandot, played by Chinese actress Guan Xiaotong, who is cursed by a mysterious power emanating from three Mazovian bracelets that were given to her as birthday gifts.

While answering three riddles, one for each bracelet, Calaf inadvertently uncovers his own extraordinary past.

The film, an adaptation of Giacomo Puccini’s opera of the same name, is in pre-production.

Like his brother Cole, Dylan enjoyed a long break from acting after The Suite Life wrapped in 2011. Both brothers enrolled in New York University, graduating in archaeology and video game design respectively.

Cole made his screen return a year before Dylan, in hit TV drama Riverdale, with both Sprouses now firmly back in the acting game.
