8 Bits Of Gossip We Picked Up Backstage At The VS Show

From Kendall Jenner covering up her lips to what the models really ate, here's what went down backstage at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2016...

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016 was just as spectacular as we predicted – from Kendall Jenner’s FIVE outfit changes and Bella Hadid’s Angel debut to Irina Shayk announcing her pregnancy on the runway, it was definitely a night to remember.

And as always, LOOK was there getting ready with the Angels backstage (as well as partying the night away with them later at the Grand Palais). And there was plenty of gossip to be had…

Here are the 9 things LOOK learnt behind-the-scenes at the VS Show.

1) The Angels have epic bums

Okay so yes, they’re seriously slender. But they also have INCREDIBLE bums. Incentive for squats if ever you needed one.

2) It was glamorous chaos backstage

There was a body finishing room, a table of hair extensions about 8 metres long, and the girls walked round in their pink silk Victoria’s Secret robes and flip flops everywhere. Even though it was freezing outside.

3) Gigi and Kendall seemed out of sorts


Kendall looked sombre and barely smiled (instead she was spotted covering up her lips a lot), whilst Gigi also didn’t seem herself. Both refused interviews and disappeared when it came to the after-party whilst the other Angels happily mingled.

4) The buffet was seriously carb-heavy

Croque Monsieurs were served at the after party along with ham croissants (the room stank of cheese toasties because of them) along with Champagne and Ciroc vodka . The buffet backstage during the day was also huge and the models got seriously involve, dispelling the age-old myth that models don’t eat.

5) Bella Hadid wasn’t very smiley

…But it might have had something to do with the fact that her ex, The Weeknd, was performing. The couple looked pretty awkward on stage, but we spotted the singer hanging out with Bella’s parents in the same area at the after-party. Ooh! Many were speculating that a rekindled romance could be on the cards.

6) The Angels’ lashes came courtesy of Max Factor’s Falsh Lash Epic mascara

In fact, it was the hero product of the day, championed by Max Factor’s Tom Pecheux. Everyone was also obsessing over the Beach Waver tongs which were used to create the Angels’ effortless waves by stylist Anthony Turner.

7) Doutzen Kroes watched from the audience

…And was waved to by loads of angels. We even caught Alessandra Ambrosio mouthing “you should be here” to her (aww). Doutzen ended her contract with Victoria’s Secret in 2014.

8) $20 million was rumoured to have been spent

Au revoir, Paris! Here’s to another AMAZING #VSFashionShow. Watch all this on the runway Dec. 5, 10/9c on @cbstv!
