It’s not an uncommon site to see runners downing a beer after a marathon, as some consider it a recovery elixir of sorts. (After pounding the pavement for 26.2 miles, you’d want a drink, too.) Boozing has become such a phenomenon at races that beer companies are formally getting in on the action by providing free drink tickets to participants. And after seeing models’ celebratory meals on Instagram last night, perhaps Dominos and McDonald’s should consider partnering with Victoria’s Secret post-show. (Just something to think about business execs…you can address a check to Fashion Unfiltered after you follow through.) The Angels train like professional athletes and the VS Fashion Show is essentially the Olympics of modeling, so they deserve to savor some well-deserved carbs after all the blood, sweat, and tears. Here, we reveal supers’ dirty little secrets from last night:
Rappers aren’t the only one poppin’ bottles
The bubbly was flowing backstage at VS and Angels were knocking it back like Jay-Z on a yacht “to calm the nerves,” said Devon Windsor. “Oh my god, I love champagne!” Maria Borges noted during a special appearance in Cindy Bruna’s Instagram story. Us too, girl…us too.
Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Joan Smalls, and Lily Donaldson carbo-loaded at Ferdi
When an American needs a cheeseburger in Paris, there’s nothing like Ferdi (if you can get a table). Naturally, starving supermodels can saunter in sans reservation and snag a premiere spot. Victoria’s Secret veteran Doutzen Kroes even joined the crew…if only for the fries, mac and cheese, and shots.
Sure, this Italian delicacy isn’t exactly French, but when you’ve literally worked your ass (and abs) off, you deserve to eat whatever you want, wherever you want it.
Alessandra Ambrosio and Kendall Jenner satisfy a sweet tooth
McGruff took a bite out of crime...but Victoria's Secret Angels take a bite out of the Eiffel Tower. "You should try it," Gigi Hadid dared Jenner on Snapchat. After watching her pal snap off the top of the powder pink (what else?) Parisian landmark, Hadid cheered, "Her teeth are still there!"
