Backstage at Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2012: Hair & Makeup

posted on: Wednesday, 7 November 2012


Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Backstage This morning Fashion Foie Gras stepped backstage with the Angels for the Victoria's Secret Fashion 2012. The look is natural perfection with barely there fresh faced makeup and thick bouncy hair. The models were scattered throughout the room being looked after by some of the leading makeup and hair artists from around the world. Some models had as many as five people working on them at once. It was an amazing production that can only be described as organised chaos. I made my way up and down three rows of hairdressers and makeup teams that were transforming some of the world's most beautiful women.

The models were all dressed in their pink bedazzled robes matched with pink flip flops. It's a good thing it was warm inside as I doubt the flip flops would have held up well outside in the snow that was falling. It must be said that the Victoria's Secret models are some of the most professional that I have ever encountered. Each and every model turned this way and that as they were primped and prodded by their transformation teams. They simultaneously gave interviews to journalists, smiled for dozens of photographers surrounding them and navigated giant curling irons that were circling their heads. That, folks, is the fine art of being a supermodel and these ladies have definitely had some good training and years of practice to perfect this little dance.

Now it's time for the main event. Just a few hours to go now until we're sitting front and centre for the 2012 Victoria's Secret show and after seeing clips backstage of rehearsals, I can safely say this is going to be an event to remember. Stay tuned for more info from the actual show and after party.
