The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is upon us again, as 29 of the 33 models walking in the show appeared at the Lexington Armory on Tuesday morning to kick off the sexy festivities!
As a preview to the annual runway event, the models welcomed editors and photographers for a first peek at this year’s set - and a first glimpse of the majority of the cast of models who will be walking in the show! Upon walking into the space, a straight gold runway dominates the center of the room, which is accented with red bleacher seats and a huge Victoria’s Secret banner across the top of the stage. Rows and rows of white VS logos dominate the red background, while the gold glittering runway sparkles like magic.
Once the models took to the stage, the flashbulbs began as the models gave their very best smiles while dressed in skinny jeans and this year’s leather jacket decorated with a very sparkly back. And in addition to Victoria’s Secret’s stable of supermodels, a few fresh faces are joining the ranks this year including Martha Streck, Lais Ribeiro, Heloise Guerin, and Jacquelyn Jablonski!
While Chanel Iman’s celebrating her second turn down the VS runway, this year’s extra special as her mom and sister are flying in to see the show for the first time! “I think that’s the most exciting thing - when your family can be there to support you!”
Behati Prinsloo, the resident Pink girl, has her own reason to rejoice this year as the Pink section will close the show! “I’m always shocked and very honored to come back every year,” she said. “I think Pink is a great way to end the show because it’s a fun and upbeat segment! I have huge wings! I’m very excited because I had my baby wings last year and now I have these huge, colorful rainbow wings. I’m nervous for that because they’re heavy and I don’t want to walk hunched over!” If Pink’s the final segment and Behati’s THE Pink girl, could that mean she’s closing the show?
VS runway regulars Behati and Izabel Goulart had a few bits of advice for the newbies of the cast. “Just enjoy your time!” said Izabel. “Enjoy being here. The first show, all the girls get nervous, but just enjoy your moment, relax, because it’s a memory for a lifetime.”
“I remember my first show and I was so nervous!” said Behati. “When I finished, I was like, ‘Why was I so nervous?’ It’s fun and easy going. Everyone’s so chilled and that’s what it should be. I saw Heloise [Guerin] backstage and she was like, ‘What am I doing?!’ You role play, you get into a character and you do it. If you fall, you look sexy falling!”
