Kendall Jenner and other Angels celebrate the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show with backstage pics
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is finally hitting the airwaves Sunday night, and no one is more excited than the Angels. All it takes is one peek on Instagram to see that the world’s most famous faces in fashion — from Kendall Jenner to Gigi Hadid — have spent their weekend sharing behind-the-scenes VS moments.
The show was shot in early November in New York City, and the runway looks have already been seen the world over, but the backstage images are a whole new view of the event.
Both Jenner and Hadid are back on the runway this year after missing last year’s Shanghai show and are clearly excited about it. Jenner reminded her fans to tune in Sunday night with a post to her nearly 100 million followers spotlighting images from “moments before and during” the big event (including one of her backstage with her hair still in rollers).

Hadid also posted, putting up three separate compilations of photos including pics from VS rehearsal (where she practiced in shorts and a T-shirt and, of course, wings):

And a teary moment from backstage with fellow model Candice Swanepoel while they watched Adriana Lima’s last VS walk.
This pic got me ! 😭 I believe we’re watching @adrianalima’s last VS walk (in celebration of the most epic Angel but also sadness and denial cause we all love her so much!!) and I’m holding on to @angelcandices oh so tight bc working alongside women I grew up watching has meant so much to me…. Candice has known she was my fave growing up since the first time we met when I was just a new face in NYC…. what I don’t think I’ve told her is how lucky I have always felt that when I met someone I looked up to for so long she was everything I’d hoped she’d be. She proved that true beauty and confidence shows in openness and kindness. Forever your biggest fan, C! Love you.

Gigi’s sister Bella also posted rehearsal photos on her account; her photos show her practicing her strut in wings and bike shorts.

And Cindy Bruna’s backstage photos captured the emotion of getting offstage after a walk as an Angel:

As did Kelsey Merritt who walked in her first Victoria’s Secret show this year:

But the best behind-the-scenes photo isn’t from one of the show’s models but instead from singer Ariana Grande, who performed at the 2014 show in London. Grande posted a hilarious backstage shot with the caption: “This is how my whole life feels.”
four years ago today! this is how my whole life feels.

Even with all the amazing backstage and rehearsal moments coming to light, the real show is yet to come. Tune in Sunday at 10 p.m. on ABC.
