You may be familiar with the popular Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but the fashion brand also has another TV special, and it’s airing tonight.?The second-ever Victoria’s Secret Swim Special features the models goofing around and shooting their new swimwear catalogue.
Longtime Angel Behati Prinsloo, who chatted with USA TODAY poolside at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills,?shares all the details:
It’s much more fun than the fashion show.
While the fashion show is focused on models walking the runway, the swim special shows the girls?”all crazy, rolling around on the beach,” says Prinsloo. “Who doesn’t want to watch (that)?”
A lot happened behind the scenes.
“They honestly filmed us doing everything,” she said. “There were a lot of fun moments” including?pranks, dancing at dinner and performances from Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas.?It’s not?just?focused on bikini modeling.
The Angels spent a week at St. Barts for the shoot.
But no, they didn’t get sick of each other. “We weren’t all together in the same room every five seconds,” she said. “We all do get along really well, and there’s a lot of new girls, so it was fun to get to know them.”
They’re not doing push-ups when the cameras are off.
Exercising before a show or shoot “makes me feel better, but it doesn’t really do anything,” said Prinsloo, who’s athletic (she used to do gymnastics and play field hockey), but?didn’t do much pumping up during the swim special. The catwalk, however, is a different story. “Before the runway show, we do squats. Candice (Swanepoel) will start it, Alessandra (Ambrosio) will join… and I’m like ughh, it’s so tiring.”
Husband Adam Levine will be watching… eventually.
“It doesn’t feel weird or vain (to see the special), because we worked so hard leading up to it,” said Prinsloo, who plans to watch Wednesday.?Levine, however, won’t be able to tune in live, because he’s on an international tour with?Maroon 5. “He’ll watch when he gets back. He loves (the show),” she said.
She has a bikini recommendation.
It’s the “comfortable and cute” neoprene sport bikini which?she wears playing volleyball onscreen.
