Victoria's Secret backstage madness with Adriana, Behati
New York: Victoria's Secret models admitted to excitement and a few jitters backstage on November 8 ahead of the taping of their annual fashion show.
"This is my 18th Victoria's Secret fashion show and I thought over the years I would get more relaxed. No, I still get nervous. Even like just like as my first Victoria's Secret show so I am very anxious to get out there," said Adriana Lima. She's walked in more Victoria's Secret runway shows than any other model.
The Brazilian beauty said she likes to begin to prepare for the event two months ahead.
"You're gonna think this is crazy. I start getting into the mindset two months prior (to) the fashion show. I'm not joking. I get into laser focus. Workout and music and taking care of my hair and skin. All my focus for two months for this day here, you know? It's - Victoria's Secret is the biggest entertainment in television of the year. Over 190 countries will be watching this show. It's a big celebration for women so we've got to represent our girls out there, right? So this is all it's about, you know?"
Once the taping is over, she plans to have a celebratory dinner out.
"Oh, tonight, I'm going to a Brazilian restaurant right after with my family, yes," she laughed.
Behati Prinsloo, who gave birth eight months ago to her second daughter with husband, 'The Voice' coach Adam Levine, said being a mom has inspired her to push herself to get in shape for the show.
"I think it gives you more confidence," she said. "I actually think it gives me, it made me work a little harder, you know? It made me appreciate my body so much, what it can do. Create life, and then honestly get back and do this and I'm just so appreciative of everything."
The Victoria's Secret fashion show will air on ABC in December. Other models taking to the runway for the big show will be Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Candice Swanepoel.
