Backstage at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2011

I’m not even sure how to begin to explain all the gorgeousness that was backstage at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show yesterday. The Angels, all wearing hot pink silk robes as they got their hair and makeup done, had the games faces ready (i.e., flirty smiles and playful winks) before hitting the runway for the show that will be televised later this month on November 29th on CBS at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Mark your calendars because the outfits and themes are INSANE (30 pound-wings on Alessandra, check…$2.5 million dollar bra on Miranda Kerr, check…real ballet dancers, check….musical performances by Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Adam Levine while he’s walking down the runway with girlfriend Anne Vyalitsina no less, AND *spoiler alert* Jay-Z, check, check, and check!!!).

SO. What does Alessandra Ambrosio do to get her glowing skin and goddess bod? Which pizza spot in the West Village did besties Lily Aldridge and Lily Donaldson plan to eat at right after the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show? What’s Aldridge’s favorite Kings of Leon song? The answers to all in the videos below!



The makeup lead artist Tom Pecheux used on the girls was as follows:

: First, he prepped the face by massaging it with Rodin Olio Lusso Face oil. For the Angels’ beautiful tan, Pecheux used a mix of VS’s Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder in Glitterati and their Luminous Mineral Blush Duo in Starlet.
Eyes: He used their liquid liner to achieve that Marilyn Monroe-esque cat eye (it was his interpretation of what would a VS model look like in the 50s! I dig it).
Lots of Mascara!
Lips: First, a coat of the nude VS Perfect Lipstick in Whisper, then a topcoat of the coral VS Lip gloss in Sublime

And yup, Joe’s Pizza was all the rage backstage!

Oh and hello 2.5 million dollar bra
