Amongst the bevy of 40 angelic beauties backstage at today’s Victoria’s Secret show, we spotted our favourite Brit babes Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn who were both late additions to the show’s line up. We caught up with the pair on their preparations for the show and as ever their responses varied from the tried and tested script. Instead of telling us how much water they’d drunk in the past 72 hours, we heard about Dominos chicken strippers, Call of Duty and the perils of having to be sexy all day long... What's not to love about these girls?!

GraziaDaily: So how have you prepared for the show this year?
Cara Delevignge: Umm…I went to Juice Press yesterday and had a juice, but really I haven’t done much to prepare. I actually found out quite late that I was doing the show because of my filming schedule. The new Call of Duty came out so I’ve been playing that like crazy and eating Dominos pizza. And Dominos chicken strippers, all 21 of them.
Jourdan Dunn: To be honest I didn’t do anything different. Yesterday me and Cara were looking around at the other girls and saying damn! We should have gone to the gym – look at all these girls! But no, I didn’t change what I ate or anything like that. But I did get laser hair removal which was amazing – waxing’s such a bitch. I also got an oxygen facial.

GraziaDaily: What’s the best thing about the Victoria’s Secret show?
Cara Delevingne: The best thing is that we all get a chance to hang out together and catch up with all the girls. Its always so busy and its just nice to get together.
Jourdan Dunn: The costumes are insane. I’m really looking forward to wearing my British Invasion [one of the themes of this evening’s show] inspired costume – it’s a horse riding outfit with a cane and a hat and these high heeled riding boots which are cool. I love how there is always a theme and they take it there and go beyond. I’m not really a girly girl so its nice to get done up and be in a pink room, pink robe, well pink everything!
GraziaDaily: And the worst…?
Cara Delevingne: The worst thing is probably the nerves – I get so, so nervous. The only thing that fear does is stop you from doing what you want to do, so I have to work on it and try not to run away from it.
Jourdan Dunn: For me the most challenging thing about the show is being sexy all day. Really, you can’t turn it off, my cheeks are so sore from all the smiling.

Grazia Daily: Who, to you has the ultimate Victoria’s Secret body?
Cara Delevingne: Those Brazilians! What are they doing over there, how do they do it? It's just incredible! I love curves, I’m all about curves. I don’t have many which is really sad, but I think the more the better.
Jourdan Dunn: For me Tyra [Banks] was the ultimate Victoria’s Secret girl. The way she just owned the runway and seemed to be so sexy.
GraziaDaily: What does it feel like to be included in the line-up?
Cara Delevingne: God it’s such an honour to be amongst all of these incredibly beautiful women…
Jourdan Dunn: To be honest it makes me feel like I shouldn’t be here, its like, err really, Jourdan. You. Here with all these other girls? No, but really it’s amazing to be here.
Grazia Daily: And how are you going to celebrate?
Cara Delevingne: I’m going tonight to the after-party and we’re going to let our hair down, have a lot of fun and you know just dance around. And actually I might also go to Las Vegas this weekend – hopefully what happens in Vegas…
