Among the chaotic sea of hairspray and rhinestones backstage at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Tuesday, first-timer Kendall Jenner seemed relaxed as she chatted with reporters about her diet for the world’s most famous lingerie show.
“Egg whites and avocado,” the 20-year-old divulged, while other angels around her snapped selfies as they had last minute touch-ups made to their hair and nails.
Australian model Shanina Shaik, 24, is walking the Victoria’s Secret runway for the fourth time this year.
“It becomes a lot easier on the nerves,” doing it year after year, Shaik said. “I know what to expect and to have a good time.”
For models making their debuts, such as Jenner and Gigi Hadid, Shaik gave the advice to “just be happy, be yourself and enjoy the moment.”
NYC-based Shaik also chatted about her favorite neighborhood in the city — Meatpacking District — and said seafood restaurant Catch was her favorite local dinner spot.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air on Dec. 8 on CBS, with musical guests Ellie Goulding, Selena Gomez and The Weeknd.
