We've been watching the Victoria's Secret Angels and models taking Parisian cooking classes and posing with pink-chocolate Eiffel Tower statues all week. But today, the perfectly coiffed crew went to work at the Palais-Royal, where the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was filmed. Unlike Yolanda, we didn't have a ticket to the main event. But while we wait to catch its broadcast on Monday, we did get a few teasers from the models' social media feeds. Here's what went on backstage, plus a peek at what Kendall, Bella, and Gigi will wear in the show.
1. Sexy Cat-Eyes Were Applied
Makeup artist Marie-Sophie Steenaert was part of what she called the "happy makeup team." Before the show kicked off, she worked alongside Tom Pecheux to give models like Brooke Perry "sexy cat-eye."
2. Everything Was Pink
No shocker here—have you seen the inside of a Victoria's Secret store? From the carpeting to the walls to the models' silky robes, everything was the color of raspberry macaron.
3. There Was Dancing on the Makeup Tables
If you want to know what it takes to feel that confident in your underwear, well...the truth is not as pretty as the models.
4. The Shutterbugs Went Nuts
With subject matter like that, can you blame them?
5. We Learned Which Mascara The Angels Wear
This is big. Since we're not so into the intense workouts (see above), here's another tip for transforming into an Angel: swipe on this drugstore mascara.
6. Adriana Looked Like a Boss
When you've walked in the show 15 times before, you can totally pull off looking this blase. Then again, she also had the gods on her side...
7. Lady Gaga Teased Us Ruthlessly
We knew she was cooking up something special with Alaia. But when Lady Gaga hints at her "perfect pink carpet and #VSFashionShow finale look," well, that really tests our patience.
8. There was A LOT of Kissy Face
Like, a lot. (The makeup artist on the left is like, hey, can I put on your lip already?) But that's hardly surprising. In fact, that's just a stall until the big reveal...
9. We Know What Kendall, Gigi, and Bella Are Wearing
Check out these amazing looks for the "dark angel" segment. We should have known that Bella can wear the heck out of plumage. We also caught a glimpse of Kendall in these on-fire, over-the-knee boots.
Monday can't get here soon enough! (And that's the last time we'll ever utter that phrase.)
