Ever wonder what Victoria's Secret Angels do before they hit the runway at the company's annual fashion show?
If they're Behati Prinsloo, who opened the lingerie brand's 20th-annual show when it filmed last month, final preparations mean a quick trip to a cyrotherapy chamber and some last-minute toning.
"We're like doing squats right before we walk out," Prinsloo said, laughing backstage. "We're like, it's not going to do anything right now."
The Namibia-born beauty's opening look, part of its "BOHO Psychadelic" segment, included a pair of wings she said weigh roughly 20 pounds.
Prinsloo was followed out by Lily Aldridge, who was chosen to model this year's $2 million Fantasy Bra and matching belt. All in, the 1,364.9-carat set took more than 685 hours to create.
"I found out in July [that I'd be wearing the Fantasy Bra] and it was just so exciting," Aldridge said. "I had to keep it a secret until like last week. I told my husband [rocker Caleb Followill], but besides that I couldn't tell anyone, so it's been a really hard secret."
The show is a marketing bonanza for the $7.2 billion brand, and will be shown in 185 countries when it airs Tuesday on CBS.
