Sorry, Wonka, the real Golden Ticket is entrance to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show
With all due respect to “Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,” the real Golden Ticket isn’t a tour of some weird candy factory, but entrance to the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
I was lucky enough to snag a ticket to this year’s show, taped at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City. (It was official press business. I swear.) Musical guests were Katy Perry and Akon. But the real stars were the Victoria’s Secret Angels, including Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio.
I also got a chance to interview four of the Victoria’s Secret models back stage, including Ms. Ambrosio, during their hair and makeup session.
The show airs on CBS on Nov. 30. I can’t wait to see the finished product.
More thoughts and observations on the event to come.
