Victoria's Secret Model Casting

We all know that being a Victoria's Secret model is far from easy, and the Victoria's Secret creative director, Sophia Neophitou-Apostolu has just confirmed it. Accordingly the casting is a  "terrifying" process that models must go through in order to secure a spot in the notorious lingerie annual runway show.

Even famous Angels such as, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Koss and Miranda Kerr must submit themselves to what is known as "pre-inspection".

 "They all have to do it - even the contracted girls - and it's incredibly nerve-wracking for them" states Mrs Neophitou-Apostolou to Vogue UK, while adding in that"It's quite terrifying for the models. They are provisionally cast by John Pfeiffer but the final decision is made by the whole team, sitting at this long table in a room with really harsh lighting and they have to walk towards us and away from us".

Mrs Neophitou-Apostolou, who dismissed Kate Upton last year for looking "like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blonde hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy" is also the editor of 10 magazine, according to a Daily Mail reporter.

"It's really like being an Olympian - they have to be in peak condition. It's not about being thin or anything like that - it's about being ready to perform and be the best you can be in that moment.
'It's not about being thin - it's about being ready to perform" She added.

Victoria's Secret Angel Lindsay Ellingson is already in preparation for the Christmas runway show, set to air December 10th. But rather than trying to lose weight, the model claims that she wants to "add curves."

During New York Fashion Week this time last Tuesday, the 28-year-old told Fashionista "'I think it’s sexier and more feminine to be more full. So I add like almond butter, peanut butter, protein shakes to my diet, just to feel a little sexier and curvier."

The model, who has also walked for Chanel, Gucci and Oscar de la Renta, said she "steps up" her workouts in preparation for the show, she admitted: "I try not to stress about it because that’s never good." Miss Ellingson, who was in Paris last week with fellow Angles Karlie Kloss, Adriana Lima and Behati Prinsloo shooting the annual Victoria's Secret Christmas commercial near the Louvre, seems to be an anomaly when it comes to her pre-show diet.

Last year, Joan Smalls, Doutzen Kroes, Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel and newcomer Hilary Roda all rushed to social media to take note of their calories and workout regimes, in their race to the runway.
