See Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Models Without Makeup Transforming for the Runway

At the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, models glide down the runway in glamorous hair and makeup.

But backstage snaps show the Victoria’s Secret Angels glamour-free as they get ready for the runway show, sitting in their pink robes before their hair and makeup has been done.

Kendall Jenner is not participating in the show this year — she has a deal with Italian lingerie company La Perla that prohibits her from working with competing companies — but last year, the model was snapped makeup-free while a stylist worked on her hair.

Other models who will return to the Victoria’s Secret stage have also been caught without makeup on, such as longtime Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima, who first walked in the show in 1999.

Alessandra Ambrosio, another model who has appeared in numerous Victoria’s Secret runways, also has been photographed without undergoing a makeover.

While there’s nothing wrong with going makeup-free, these backstage photos capture a different side of supermodels than what we see on the runway.

The presentation will take place in December in Shanghai.
