Starships // Nicki Minaj
Girls with Wings
Second Challenge - We all know we love to lip-sync, and since the big VSFS is coming up in a couple weeks, which song would you like all of the girls to lip-sync to for their annual lip-dub video?*
I think Starships by Nicki Minaj would be a good choice. It’s fun and girly and Nicki is one of the biggest celebrities out there right now so the fans will know and enjoy the song and can sing along. The angels are like the starships, meant to fly, so some of them will be wearing their wings. Most of them will be in lingerie with funky jewelry on and big fur coats or leather jackets or something like that to make it more “haute” and they should be wearing pumps to make their legs look even longer and leaner. Of course they’ll be dancing and singing along to the song. They could also be spraying some VS perfume around or at the camera and maybe sucking on lollipops.
story should be up soon
Again, I'm new to the group so if you could introduce yourselves and fill me in on what I've missed that'd be great. And I changed my model to Cintia Dicker.
So I'm not even really sure what this story is. I just wasn't feeling it so yeah, I apologize for it sucking;;
For the morning I dressed in a pair of Pink yoga pants and a light sweater, also VS. Since I’d started working for them my closet had been stocked with their apparel and since there was no reason in getting dressed up for hair and make-up I figured I’d go in something comfy and what was more comfortable than a pair of yoga pants? I tucked them into some uggs, washed my face, brushed my teeth and left my apartment for a day of lip syncing. I wasn’t so sure about this. I was worried I wouldn’t be peppy enough for the video.
So far the photographers had loved what I’d been doing for the cameras but it was easy putting on a smile and posing seductively. But dancing? And jumping around singing? That wasn’t exactly my forte.
My stomach twisted for all of hair and make-up.
“You look beautiful. There’s nothing to be worried about.” Pam, the make-up artist, assured me giving me a pat on the back.
I stood up and examined myself, still dressed in the signature Victoria’s Secret silky pink robe, my hair was tousled and wavy looking like I’d just spend the day at the beach and my eyes were bright and angelic. I did look good. Maybe this wouldn’t be so bad.
I wobbled onto set awkwardly in my stilettos and lingerie. I was still getting used to strutting around in close to nothing. Chin up, I tell myself, taking a deep breath.
The music blared out of the speakers and I attempted to sway around and look happy but judging by the whispers back stage I must not have been doing it so well, shocker. The cameras stop for a while and the camera man spoke in hushed tone with the others. I gulped.
A few moments later everyone was staring at me. I gulped again. S.hit. “Just try loosening up.” They say. “Have fun.”
I try to smile and take their advice but again it’s not working. I ask for a break and head to the bathroom to collect myself.
“You can do this.” I whisper into the bathroom mirror. No I can’t, I thought. I bite my lip realizing how much time I’m wasting and try to get myself back into one piece. Come on. I take a few deep breaths and go back onto set.
When I give them the cue the music starts blaring again. I close my eyes and shake my arms out trying to get into the groove. One more deep breath and I’m singing along to the song. Bouncing and twirling around, winking at the camera. This wasn’t so bad. I grab an imaginary microphone and start belting the lyrics into it. A few people start cheering me on. This is it.
They film me a few times more until they’re assured they got just what they needed. I smile and slip back into my robe feeling accomplished.
