Unless you've been living under a rock or haven't had access to the Internet over the last 24 hours, you already know that the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show — perhaps the most spectacular, sparkliest marketing extravaganza of the year — was filmed in New York City on Tuesday night. Thanks to the lingerie brand's cast of social media savvy models (many of which boast more than a million followers), our feeds were filled with behind-the-scenes snaps from the ladies who work hard all year long to look enviably perfect in barely-there ensembles paired with handcrafted wings. 

Before walking two runway shows and hitting the after-party, the event's stars spent hours upon hours in hair and makeup getting primped, polished and spray-tanned by the industry's top beauty pros. Apparently this can get a little boring: As evidenced by the many backstage photos floating around the web, models behavior got sillier (and, believe it or not, sexier) as the day progressed. Blowing sweet kisses to the camera is one thing, but stripping down to nearly nothing and posing atop a table? That's quite another.
