LONDON 2 December – The Victoria’s Secret models crossed the Atlantic for the lingerie label’s first catwalk show in London.
The 47 models are showing off the brand’s most extravagant creations, Rhinestones, feathers, glitter galore and the jewel-encrusted bras worth $2 million each.
Security was extremely tight for reporters allowed a glimpse backstage, where models including Karlie Kloss and Alessandra Ambrosio, donned hair rollers, pink satin robes and flip flops while getting their makeup ready and pouting for cameras.
Model Lily Aldridge called it a “little slumber party that we get to have in London” — albeit an expensive and slickly managed one. The show, typically a glitzy and over the top affair, will feature a performance by pop singer Taylor Swift and a guest list of more than 3,000 people.
And unlike most mainstream fashion shows, Aldridge and other models walking for the lingerie label are encouraged to dance, flirt and interact with the audience.
“There’s no better energy. You can be sexy and have fun and smile. You get to let your personality shine, so I love that,” Aldridge said.
Outside the shows, hundreds of fans stood in a light drizzle hoping for a glimpse of the models and the expected celebrities.
