There's not a week that goes by when we don't utter the sentence 'I wish I was a Victoria's Secret Angel'. This week we've been wishing for wings as the stars of the lingerie label's catwalk and campaigns jetted off to France to shoot Christmas and swimwear commercials. Despite hectic work schedules and late night filming, as usual the Angels had a hoot together. In fact, if their Instagram pics are anything to go by it was one big girly holiday.
The shenanigans kicked off in Paris, with the likes of Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo and Karlie Kloss joining forces to bring a little festive spirit to the French capital. Wearing elegant white feathery wings the Angels undertook and outdoor overnight shoot against the inconic Parisian cityscape including the pyramid-shaped Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. Cowering in the cold midnight air in between takes, the girls wore fur-hooded jackets over their underwear.
In one photo Lily Aldridge, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio are even seen snuggling together under a blanket to keep warm. We don't feel too sorry for them though as following the Christmas shoot the Angels were next asked to fly to St Tropez where they spent a few days soaking up the sun and frolicking around in bikinis as they shot a Victoria's Secret swimwear campaign. Alessandra and Behati were joined by Candice Swanepoel on the Riviera for the event.
It was far from a case of all work and no play as Alessandra and Candice are snapped hugging a bottle of champagne while in another pic Swanepoel jumps off a yacht into the ocean, with the caption 'Reach for the sun'. 32-year-old Alessandra is also seen catching some rays on the deck of a boat in a photo she tagged, 'La vie est belle!!! Wishing u a great week...' Thanks Ambrosio, but we reckon it probably won't be as good as yours!
Of course, we can't blame the girls for taking full advantage of all the perks that come with their Angel statuses, especially after recent stories about the grueling castings that take place ahead of the annual Victoria's Secret annual show. Apparently all the potential models - including VS regulars - are asked to walk the room in their lingerie for a long table of judges in order to prove that they are in peak physical condition to represent the brand on the runway. Eek!
