The holiday season hasn’t truly arrived until the Victoria’s Secret Angels hit the runway. Fashion show veteran Alessandra Ambrosio takes us behind the wings and shares her favorite things from this year’s show, as well as her go-to holiday gift and more.
Star: What’s your favorite part about the costume you wear during the fireworks section?
Alessandra: “I think the vibrancy of the colors really reminds me of Brazil. It also reminds me of sparks from fireworks. I think it’s fun.”
Star: How many people does it take to get you into costume on the day of?
Alessandra: “It could be 2-3 people. One person takes the wings out, one person puts the jewelry on, one closes the bra, and the other one puts on my shoes.”
Star: What’s your favorite memory from all the shows that you’ve done?
Alessandra: “Last year, when me and Adriana walked the runway together in the fantasy bras. That was very special because it was the first time they had two girls on the runway and we were both wearing the fantasy bras. We’ve been part of the history of Victoria’s Secret because we’ve been with them for so long. That’s what we do.”
Star: Is there one item that you love to gift for the holidays?
Alessandra: “I love giving my friends Victoria’s Secret PJ’s because they’re very comfy and it’s that time of year that it’s nice to get PJ’s. I love getting some, so I love to give some.”
Star: What’s your best tip for taking a selfie?
Alessandra: “A good application. Find a good app that will smooth everything out. There’s one app that will do it by itself. I think the best tip is don’t get too close to the camera. A lot of people get too close and the face gets very distorted. I’m lucky that I have long arms so I try to put it as far as I can.”
Make sure to tune in to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Dec. 8 at 10/9 Central on CBS.
