This Wednesday night, the Victoria’s Secret Angels will prance/walk/fly down the runway wearing a bunch of fantasy lingerie for the taping of the 2011 Victoria’s Secret fashion show. The fittings have been taking place this past weekend, and there are a lot of sneak peeks of what’s to come. While most people won’t get to see the full production until it airs on CBS on November 29 at 10/9C, these pictures should tide you over until then.
The Telegraph followed Adriana Lima around during her fittings, and also talked to her about the insane amount of preparation it takes to get her body Angel-ready. Her training started with working out with a personal trainer daily in August, and for the last three weeks it’s been twice a day. And nine days before the show, she stopped eating solids–this means protein shakes only (containing “powdered egg”). After drinking a gallon of water for everyday for weeks straight, she will abstain from water for 12 hours before the show, to get rid of any water weight.
Sophia Neophitou, the stylist for this year’s show, told the UK paper, “They are athletes in this environment. It’s harder to be a Victoria’s Secret model because no one can just chuck an outfit on you, and hide your lumps and bumps.”
The training definitely worked for Adriana. Wow, is all we can say. Click through to see her outfits, plus Miranda Kerr (in that $2.5 million dollar bra and a huge shell), Chanel Iman in Pink, and even a glimpse of Doetzen Kroes. This is enough to make us want to start our powdered egg diet ASAP.
