There is nothing more spectacular in the Fashion Industry than the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The angels, the wings, the outstanding extravagant lingerie attire, and the models are all part of the reason why the show has continuously gained popularity over the years.
Additionally, aside from the dazzling runway ensembles, the slew of celebrity performances at the show, aimed to entertain the guests, adds a touch of glamor to the already impressive event.
This year, the show featured 51 models and over 2,000 industry professionals and workers. If you have ever wondered what it takes to organize and pull off such an extravaganza, well, you’re not alone. Here are some of the activities that occur at the annual event:
Traveling to Paris:
This year, the Victoria’s Secret annual show was held in Paris. So the models, editors, makeup artists and all relevant parties had to travel to Paris. Inside the plane, the models typically have conversations with editors and writers as they chat among each other and take obligatory selfies. The Victoria Secret Angels as always are a vision of beauty with perfect makeup and their hair in place.
For the show to be a success, a variety of industry professionals have to collaborate. The professionals that you would find at such a show include individuals from the press, camera operators, people and hosts of entertainment news, fashion bloggers, representatives from media companies, and casting agents. These people are all relevant and are necessary for making the show successful in the media.
Upon arriving in Paris, models have the opportunity to relax and get a feel of the city, but the leisure time does not last long. When the models are not handling their official tasks such as completing their Victoria Secret photo shoots, you will find them rehearsing for the show because everything must be perfect, and walking flawlessly in winged lingerie is no easy task. Because of their celebrity status, it would be impossible for the models to leave their hotel without being swarmed by the paparazzi, so the best option is to prepare for the mega show as everyone waits in anticipation.
Behind the Scenes:
On the actual day of the show, backstage is a hub of activity as models get ready, and reporters, their crew, and photographers wander around getting shots. The makeup artists and the stylists have to make sure that everyone is a vision of beauty and that all models have their outfits laid out and ready before stepping out for the runway. Before the show begins, guests are welcomed with an hour of cocktails and photographs. Finally, guests are escorted to their seats for the show and the magic of the Victoria’s Secret Annual Fashion Show begins.
