Adriana Lima is an old pro by now when it comes to walking in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but you’d better believe that she still gets nervous! HollywoodLife.com caught up with the supermodel in Paris on Nov. 30, and she told us all about the secret backstage ritual that the ladies used to overcome any nervousness. It’s super sweet!
Adriana Lima, 35, told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that her favorite part of being backstage at the show was the beginning! “There was a moment before where all the girls, the moment before we started the show, we held hands, all of us!” Adriana gushed on the pink carpet for the VS Fashion Show afterparty at the Grand Palais in Paris. “And, I know this is gonna sound crazy, but it does help us with the nerves,” she spilled. Love it!
It didn’t stop at the hand-holding, though. “We screamed, like, the loudest we could and everyone heard outside and we just let it go,” Adriana added. “It was really great. It was really great to have that connection with the girls.” Dang, as if we didn’t have serious FOMO already!
Of course, Adriana shined like the star she is when she walked in the show. She had jaws dropping in a red lace halter top-style bra and turquoise cut-out underwear, and the look was completed by a pair of sexy patent leather thigh-high black boots and black tulle wings!
The show was taped on Nov. 30, and though it doesn’t air until Dec. 5, we’ve already gotten to see all of the amazing pics from the night. Click through our gallery, attached, to check out the best backstage and runway moments!
