The highly anticipated 2015 edition of the Victoria's Secret
Fashion airs nationwide on December 8, but the filming for the show takes place November 10 in New York City. The show — which will be celebrating
its 20th anniversary this year — will have 44 models strutting down the runway
including high-profile catwalkers like Gigi
Hadid and her bestie Kendall Jenner, along with veteran angels like Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Lily Aldridge (who will be
wearing the bejeweled Fantasy Bra).
We've always wondered what goes on behind the scenes in preparation for the show, and it looks like we won't have to anymore because Victoria's Secret recently released a video showing a sneak peek of what actually happens at the intense model castings.
We already knew it took a lot of hard work to land a spot on the runway for this show, but the process is actually a lot tougher and more nerve-racking than we imagined. Physically preparing is also a big part of this, and that's evident in the models' Instagram accounts. Their routines include everything from boxing, intense ab workouts, ballet, and Pilates to getting beautified and camera-ready with facials and manicures. It makes us want to hit up a fitness class and pamper ourselves afterward — check out how these beauties prep before the big day.
