10 Behind The Scenes Secrets Of Hand Models

When the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai airs next Tuesday, you know to expect a few things: your favourite Angels hamming it up on the runway, a couple extra sexy performances by Miguel and Harry Styles and all the goddess-like lingerie a girl could dream of owning. What you won’t see are details from the models’ early morning workouts, the bold, beauty looks that took hours to complete and one Angel vet reminiscing on her 18th year taking the VS runway. Read on for more insider scoop and unseen moments before the main event.

Harry Styles Getting in Some Pre-Show Gym Time

Intense pre-show workouts aren’t just for the Angels: performer and regulation hottie Harry Styles was spotted (by yours truly) on the treadmill just days before the big night. Clad in an all black get-up with old-man socks, white sneaks and a red bandana (to keep those luscious locks at bay), the former 1Der was a whole lot more buff than his gangly frame gives him credit for.

Adriana Lima Revelling in Her 18th (!) Show

Can we acknowledge the fact that Adriana Lima has been walking the VS show before some of the model newcomers have been alive? Yes, you heard that right. We chatted with the drop-dead gorgeous 36-year-old who said that with the advent of HD cameras, she takes her training very seriously. “It’s not only walking out there and wearing lingerie—you have to prepare yourself,” she says. “And working out makes me feel powerful as a woman.”

Chinese Fans Freaking Out Over Model Liu Wen

On this side of the world, Beatles-era shrieks and light-up signs of adoration followed model Liu Wen wherever she went. The Yongzhou native told us the love from her home country is totally mutual: “I feel powerful when I’m in China. I have a lot of my friends here so we all speak the same language. They make me feel ‘wow!’” she said laughing.

The Angels Taking Their Global Citizenships Seriously

After recent shows in London, Paris and now Shanghai, the VS Angels know that the whole world is watching their every strut. For model and Taylor Swift bestie Martha Hunt, this honour comes with a responsibility to use her platform for causes that are near and dear, like scoliosis research and female empowerment. “I don’t really see the purpose of having this model title if you’re not going to use it for good,” she told us backstage.

Models Going Hard in the Gym Hours Before Showtime

We all know that maintaining an Angel body requires some serious dedication. Luckily for the girls, trainers from their go-to NYC boxing gym the Dog Pound were flown in for daily sweat sessions, with some models like Taylor Hill seen hitting the gym at ungodly hours. We also caught Candice Swanepoel, clad in a breezy tee and denim Bermuda shorts (the only person to successfully pull those off, we’ll have you know) going back for seconds of healthy breakfast of local fruit and cereal the morning of the show.

The VS x Balmain Collection is Actually Wearable (And a Bit Punk)

Victoria’s Secret’s first designer collab with Olivier Rousteig of Balmain, Paris’ sexiest ticket on the fashion week circuit, was a total hit. The collection of cool-girl plaids, mesh tops and heavily studded leather jackets came out to Harry Styles’ newest rock-tinged hit “Kiwi” and we’ve got to say, the Angels have never looked cooler.

One Angel Takes a Tumble

Despite their glossy hair and rock-hard abs, the Angels are still human like the rest of us. In the Winter’s Tale act, hometown favourite Ming Xi tripped and fell on her gauzy wings, eliciting a collective gasp from the audience. Luckily, she was up on her feet with a helping hand from fellow model Gizelle while the lineup of girls behind her, including Karlie Kloss, cheered her on until she was less shaken.
