For every big fashion event, you can bet there’s the requisite after party. One can imagine that the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show after-party would be an event to behold. Victoria’s Secret Angels, Sara Sampai and Lais Ribeiro, from Portugal and Brazil respectively, were on hand to showcase their many fashion pieces from the show’s beginning right to its end. Photographer, Jerome Duran, caught all these two and many other fashion notables. Afterwards, all three reached exhaustion from the show and after-party’s hectic pace—also caught on camera!—but managed to produce the memorable images that fashion followers have been waiting for.
Even before the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is in motion, there’s much preparation: clothing fittings, exercise, and scheduling. But from the minute the Angels land in Paris and the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show gets underway, the lives for the Victoria’s Secret Angels themselves have been running in fifth gear. Fittings, make up, rehearsals—it’s all ongoing and a lot to take in. Everyone was prepared. With her lip balm and face moisturizer on hand, Sara Sampaio was ready for the challenge in advance. Lais Ribeiro got ready for her second appearance at the event for the Victoria’s Secret lingerie unveiling on the catwalk.
Once the hard work of the catwalks and exhibitions came to a halt, the after-party was not only showcased but sought after. Both Sampaio and Ribeiro lit up the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show after-party’s pink carpet. Like many other models, Sampaio was glitterd up in a mini skirt that almost melded with her skin color. Similarly, Ribeiro sported a gold mini dress with equal sparkle power and visual allure. The two Angels shared the carpet with other famous models, including Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Jasmine Tookes, and Kelly Gale, making for one of the most memorable nights in Paris conceivable.
Once It’s Over
Followers of Sara Sampaio’s Instagram have probably had a slight laugh over her appearance post-show, stretched out in the sun in front of her hotel, disheveled but accomplished.
The show’s short run will no doubt lead to more action for 2017. In the meantime, many fans have taken to Jerome Duran’s after-party VS Fashion Show photos on Instagram, showing much of the activities on the pink carpet plus shots of the models and their outfits.
