Backstage with Angels
Many men would pay dearly for my precious backstage pass I spent the morning watching the army of 40 models in fuchsia silk bathrobes getting pampered.
A sea of long legs, a herd of cameras, and the smell of hairspray in tropical heat that pretty much sums up the backstage scene of the Victoria Secret Fashion Show, which filmed in New York on Nov. 9.

London Jewelers adorned the priceless brassiere with 3,400 precious stones and 142 carats of diamonds. Kerr will also wear 23 carat gold wings and 105 000 Swarovski crystals, which took seven years to create.
