First class is forever ruined for us.
If you’ve been following along, you’ll know that the Victoria’s Secret fashion show is kind of a big deal around here. We mean, we already been hung out with Behati during her fitting, and that’s not even counting the previous year’s backstage, uh, shenanigans. But because VS has decided to ship the festivities over to London this time (we’ve literally been waiting over here with bated breath—no joke), they had to get their star runway walkers across the pond somehow. You know, those angel wings aren’t exactly functional (so sorry, we couldn’t resist).
While we’ve probably never seen (and never will see again) a more collectively genetically blessed boarding line (nor have we ever enjoyed the actual act of embarking so much), the whole thing really just felt like a tease for the show.
And because Victoria’s Secret is Victoria’s Secret, we got a call telling us there would be a special little flurry of activity at JFK’s private terminal Sunday morning. Yes, there would be a plane (Status: private. Size: large) onto which Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo, Doutzen Kroes, Karlie Kloss, Candice Swanepoel and Lindsay Ellingson would be boarding to make the five hour and some change flight to London. Forget the fantasy bra, the aforementioned are actually the lingerie show’s most precious assets—and, trust us, as far as they’re concerned, you can bet it’s first class all the way.
And while we’ve probably never seen (and never will see again) a more collectively genetically blessed boarding line (nor have we ever enjoyed the actual act of embarking so much), the whole thing really just felt like a tease for the show, happening Tuesday evening. And if a plane full of the world’s hottest models is only a preview, the main event is seriously going to be one for the books, or, uh, Instagram feeds. Stay tuned.
