Backstage at the 2011 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

This is what every man’s dream must smell like.

Like fuschia pink robes covering the most coveted models around.

Like silky moisturized limbs and just-styled bed-hair.

Or maybe just like 30 bottles of Victoria’s Secret eau da parfum. Whatever it was, the setting for this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, the Lexington Armory, was a heavenly place to be when the 40 VS Angels were preparing to step out onto the runway.

Among them, the Angel who would open the show, South Africa’s “meisie from Mooi River”, Candice Swanepoel.

I chatted to her while she was getting her hair done. Here – underneath the sound of a hairdryer – she talks about her favourite cover shoot, being an Angel and, that South African delight, biltong.



The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on 29 November at 10pm on CBS.
