SHAPE: What's the weirdest thing that has ever happened to you on a photo shoot?
DK: I don't know if it's necessarily considered weird, but I am known to bring the bad weather to bikini shoots. Not sure why, but I have some sort of jinx on the weather!
SHAPE: How many bikinis do you own?
DK: I own at least 20, but I have my five favorites that I always wear from Victoria's Secret and H&M.
SHAPE: What's the No. 1 beauty tip you've learned over the years that most women don't know?
DK: Always wash your face before going to bed! I never leave even a single spot of eyeliner or mascara on so that my eyes can rest overnight.
SHAPE: What are some of your favorite beauty products?
DK: I love my Telescopic Mascara and BB Cream from L'Oreal. When I'm in a rush, those are all I need.
SHAPE: What's something most people don't know about you that might surprise them?
DK: I love to go out and dance when my husband, Sunnery James, is spinning. I love electronic music, but when he plays it is even better.
