We have been given a sneak peek into life behind the fabulous wings, glitter coated stage and all that is gorgeous about Victoria’s Secret. Erin Heatherton and Behati Prinsloo fill us in with the inns and outs of life as a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Prinsloo has been rocking the runways since 2008 and Heatherton gained official Angel status in 2009. Heatherson tells us about life as an Angel and what its like backstage. ”Backstage at the Victoria’s Secret show is pure madness. Big personalities, big hair and tons of press.It’s a lot of fun – I think there’s something special and timeless about girls getting ready together. This is the ultimate display – head-to-toe. It’s a girls club! It’s kind of manic back there, but also fun and exciting…
…My favourite thing about being an Angel is having the opportunity to play with my femininity – it’s a kind of creativity I never tapped into growing up,” explained Heatherton. “I love to learn and Victoria’s Secret has given me more opportunities than I ever thought possible. I like doing things that scare me – I’ve learned never to doubt myself.”
Prinsloo goes onto reveal her thoughts about the brand and why she believes that it is such a success. ”I think the brand’s success comes from embracing the personality of each girl and using that to create a real brand spokesmodel. Customers and fans are able to be a part of the experience with us – watching our careers grow and learning more about us. There are really amazing people behind the brand that are always enthusiastic about working for VS. Also, Victoria’s Secret has always stuck to what they’re great at and I think those two things together are what make the brand so successful.”
What do you think we will be expecting from the next show?
