Victoria’s Secret Models Use 3.5 Liters Of Fake Tan For Fashion Show

Earlier today, dozens of the world’s top models descended upon London to walk the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

The highly anticipated event — which drew in nearly 10 million viewers nationwide last year — is set to air on CBS next Tuesday, Dec. 9.

But we’ve already got the scoop on some of what went down backstage today — specifically how the models prep their toned bodies to walk the glitzy runway in nothing more than the brand’s signature silky lingerie.

Jimmy Coco, who has been the company’s official faux-tan master since spontaneously spray-tanning former Angel Miranda Kerr in 2006, revealed that each Angel’s sun-kissed look is courtesy of tanning lotion — up to three coats of it per model.

This translates to over 40 empty bottles of self-tanner, equaling a mind-blowing 3.5 liters total used for the show.

Coco, who calls himself the “Tan Man” utilizes a host of tools, including mini airbrushes, tanning tents and even a tanning hose to ensure every model is bronzed to perfection.

The painstaking process takes approximately 25 minutes per layer and lasts just about a week.

Curious as to why it takes so much tanner to coat every Angel? According to Coco, it’s because “the Angels have the most beautiful long legs, which require lots of tanning liquid.”

Makes sense.

In addition, 25 hairstylists, 25 makeup artists and nine manicurists joined Coco backstage to primp, polish and perfect each and every model before she took to the catwalk.

From what we heard, the first-ever London show was a major success.

But you’ll have to wait until next week to see the televised event in all of its sparkly, tanned, boobalicious glory.
