♫ Smile Like You Mean It | The Killers
Girls with wings,
☆ Saturday: The VSFS is less than a week away, so all of the girls are heading down to the VS studio to try some test outfits on for the show! We're also getting interviewed by some press while we're there, so expect cameras!
[If anyone ever wants to collab, pm me! :)]
+ Caroline loves the fittings because it’s the big reveal of what she’ll be wearing on the day of the show. It’s very exciting, coming out from behind the curtain to reveal what all of the designers have been working so hard on.
+ The fittings are extremely important because you get an idea of what works on the model. Certain colors might look better with another girls skin tone, and if there’s a problem with something, you need to know in advance before you step out on the runway and your bra strap pops off, or you fall over because the wings are too heavy. It’s also an opportunity for the model to see exactly how much skin she will be showing, and what areas she might want to work out a little more.
+ It’s hard to pick a favorite because each outfit is designed with such detail, and they’re all for entirely new themes. But her favorite was the one with the headpiece. It does exactly what a VSFS outfit should. It shows off the gorgeous lingerie and model, and it makes the girl feel glamorous, confident, and beautiful. It’s an absolute showstopper.
I walked through the doors of the VS headquarters, anxious to see what outfits were awaiting me. I stepped into the elevator, and pushed the button. As the doors slid shut someone screamed out “Hold the door, please!”
I stopped the doors, and Maury stepped in. “Here for fittings?” I asked.
“Yes! You too?”
“Yeah. I’m excited to see what they’ve come up with this year.”
“Me too. I hope they give me something that’s super sexy.” She smirked. But something tells me that they could put her in a trash bag, and she’d make it sexy.
“I’m more of a glamour girl.” I smiled.
The elevator stopped, and we walked into the room together.
“Caroline, Maury!” Monica exclaimed. “Right on time. Maury, you’re going over with Dominic, and Caroline you go over to Alicia.”
We split up, and I headed over to Alicia.
“Hello.” I smiled. “I’m Caroline.”
“Lovely to meet you. So we’ve been looking through the outfits and think that we have found the perfect fit for you. Let’s go ahead and try this one on first.” She said, handing me a green outfit.
I headed back into the dressing area and tried it on.
“Ok, we just have one last look for you.” Alicia said as they snapped a picture for the board. “Wait here while I go get it, I think it will be perfect for you.”
I stepped over to the board where they were pinning up the picture of my second outfit in the right section. I scanned the board, checking out what some of the other girls would be wearing. Not everyone was up yet, though. I heard a bit of commotion and turned around to see Natasia coming out of the dressing area. She was wearing an outfit for the pink section and looked amazing. They took her picture and she came over to the board and watched them pin it up.
“This is so exciting!” She grinned.
“I know! You look great, by the way.”
“Thanks, that outfit is perfect for you.”
“I love it.” I smiled, looking checking it out in the mirror again.
Alicia came back with a nude outfit that had a jeweled body piece. “Here, try this on.”
I went back behind the curtains and started pulling off the black gloves from my second outfit. When I had the new outfit on, I couldn’t wait to get out there. It was exactly what I wanted. I walked back out to the room where everyone was waiting.
“That is fabulous.” Monica gasped.
“Wait, it’s not done yet!” Alicia yelled, rushing over with a showgirl headdress. She put it on, and I started walking to make sure the shoes fit right. It was flawless.
“Wow.” Ayla said, she had just finished her fitting.
“I know, it is exactly what I dreamed it would be.”
“I’ll trade you this for my super unique silver outfit.” She winked.
“I think I’ll pass.”
“Oh well, your loss.” She laughed.
“Ok, well you’re all finished.” Monica said. “Now just change back and head over next door to talk to the press.
I was back in my normal clothes and Monica took me to the room next door.
“Alright Caroline, this is Isabel. I just need you two to talk about the fittings and how excited you are for the show. You know, behind the scenes stuff for promos. The crew will be in here as soon as they finish up with a couple of the other girls.”
“So how’d your fitting go?” I asked Isabel.
“Amazing!” She beamed. “I’ve never been so excited for a show in my life.”
“I know how you feel. My outfits are better than I could have ever imagined.”
“They definitely know how to transform a simple bra and some panties. I wish I was even half that creative.”
“Yeah, but I guess we’ll just have to settle on being the pretty girls that walk it down the runway.” I said. We started laughing, and the people from CBS came in.
“Well, this is going to be easy?” One of them said, and we both shot him a confused look. “This is exactly what we need, a couple of the models talking and laughing. The last group were… Well let’s just say, not as friendly.”
“Oh, gotcha.” I said.
“Alright, let’s get them miked and then start shooting.”
