Backstage at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is one great big happy mess. Everyone sits around for hours getting their makeup, hair and nails done, “getting rushed and pinned and sucked in and pinched,” as Selita Ebanks puts it. And they get followed around by the camera crew from CBS, which televises the show every year, and share little bits and pieces of their lives as supermodels — from praying before the show starts to their first kiss.
This year, some of them shared the pick-up lines they’ve heard and dismissed:
Alessandra Ambrosio: Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk by again?
Selita Ebanks: Girl, your feet must be tired ’cause you done been walkin’ through my mind aaaalllll day long!
Marissa Miller: Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?
Karolina Kurkova: If you were a new hamburger, you’d be the new McGorgeous.
I think Selita and Marissa had the funnier ones, with Selita’s being totally ghetto because of the way she said it. Alessandra’s is overused, and Karolina’s was just plain stupid.
And somehow, men just can’t seem to learn.
