She’s a runway staple and a Victoria’s Secret model, so Karlie Kloss knows a little something about hair and makeup — and whether she prefers avant-garde fashion show makeup or the lingerie line’s signature smolder.

“[I love] the sexy ‘guy-hot’ make up, c’mon!” she tells PEOPLE at a party for the Victoria’s Secret 2013 swim launch. “[It makes me] feel beautiful, confident and sexy, [whereas for] the runway I probably have my eyebrows bleached, you know? It’s refreshing for me to be a part of something where you do feel beautiful and confident and sexy.”

Also making her feel all those things: love Josh Kushner, a.k.a. Ivanka Trump’s brother-in-law. And she appreciates that he’s “so not in fashion. It’s really refreshing to leave all the fashion shows and shoots and chaos totally behind.”

Chaos, including chopping off her hair the day before walking in the Victoria’s Secret fashion show last fall. “I kind of got in the dog house a little bit,” she says, “but they have been the biggest supporters of it.”

And don’t look for her to rock bombshell extensions in her shoots: the bob is here to stay. “It’s an honor to be the first Victoria’s Secret girl with short hair.” she says. “There are girls out there with every body type and there are girls out there with every hair type. You can be sexy with short hair!” And Kloss is the living proof.
