The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was filmed last night, and we went backstage during the madness! Karlie Kloss, Lily Aldridge, Adriana Lima, Doutzen Kroes, and the other Angels were all on standby, as well as supermodels Cara Delevingne and Joan Smalls, to chat about how they prep to wear next to nothing, and we got the details on what it takes to get gorgeous Victoria's Secret hair and skin (hint: lots of hair extensions and an unusual use for lipstick!). Join us backstage to see the models transform into Angels, and watch the 18th annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on Tuesday, Dec. 10, on CBS. On Kirbie: Dolce Vita dress
