Last night, Paris was blessed with a few angels, 51 beautiful angels to be exact, as it held THE sexiest event of the year, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016
Celebrating it’s 20th anniversary last night, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016 looked better than ever before as glitz, glam and beautiful ladies graced the Grand Palais in Paris.
The likes of Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid, and Adriana Lima flaunted their fab figures down the glitter-strewn catwalk, showcasing the most stunning VS lingerie and PINK collections in celebration of, you guessed it, underwear.
Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner wore their first pair of signature VS wings this year after making their first Victoria’s Secret debut in 2015 and of course, they were joined by the angels that we already know and love – Alessandra Ambrosio, Jasmin Tookes, Josephine Skriver, Elsa Hosk, Lais Ribeiro, Romee Strijd, Martha Hunt, Taylor Hill and Sara Sampaio.
The angels were even joined by some of the biggest popstars to date, including Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and Bella Hadid’s ex boyfriend, The Weeknd (she had him completely ogle-eyed as she fiercely strut her stuff down the runway and we couldn’t love her anymore for it – yes girl!)
Each year, one model is chosen to wear the bespoke masterpiece of the night. Last year we saw Lily Aldridge do the honours as she wore a fireworks fantasy bra worth $1.6 million but in this years extravaganza we can see Jasmine Tookes flaunting a dazzling fantasy bra that was created by jeweller Eddie Borgo using 9000 precious stones, weighing more than 450 carats and costing a humongous three million dollars.
While the angels make the catwalk and underwear look like light work, we all know it isn’t quite that. Ever wondered what it is that they do to look that phenomenal? We’ve found a few of Victoria’s actual secrets.
Forget treadmills, crosstrainers and long runs, the ultimate workout that has been approved by Victoria’s Secret models Gigi Hadid, Adriana Lima and Elsa Hosk is boxing mixed up with some HIIT classes.

Telling Vogue, Adriana Lima said she likes to do a lot of skipping a month and a half before the show, but boxing is where her heart really lies – ‘I have been doing boxing for over 10 years – it’s a passion of mine. Since you’re not wearing much and you’re on television, you have to pay attention to different areas.’
Lily Aldridge also revealed she prefers to do Ballet Beautiful all year round and Elsa Hosk loves a class called Flybar, as it is great for toning, tightening and lenghtening.
And of course when you’re walking down the catwalk near enough butt naked you’re going to want a great bum. Jasmine Tooke told Vogue that she loves to squat while Alessandra Ambrosio admitted that she thinks she’s in better shape now than she was 10 years ago from doing the Brazil Butt Lift class.
So there you have it, but don’t worry, they are human too. Kendall Jenner told Cosmopolitan that she works out really hard, sometimes twice a day with a trainer and then she’d go for a run, but she still likes to induldge and eats Fritos chilli cheese crisps ‘all the time.’
