Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio walk the runway at the 2014 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has been one of the most buzzed-about events ever since its first iteration in 1995. This year, the renowned lingerie fashion show relocates to London and features two gem-adorned Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bras by Pascal Mouawad, which are modeled by Victoria’s Secret Angels Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio. The show also features musical acts like Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande, a range of themes that cover everything from “fairy tale” to “exotic traveler,” the hottest in lingerie, and—of course—those famous wings.
We caught up with Lima before she hit the runway yesterday to find out what to expect. Check out her answers below and tune in next Tuesday, December 9 on CBS at 10 p.m. to watch the entire show.
What do you love most about your Victoria’s Secret Dream Angels Fantasy Bra? ADRIANA LIMA: It is made up of 16,000 precious gems and 18-karat gold. What's not to love?
With all those gems on it, how heavy is the Fantasy Bra? AL: It is actually not that heavy. Even if it were, would you say no to wearing it?
How do you feel about having two Fantasy Bras this year? AL: I think it's very exciting that there are two this year. It's the first time it has ever been done and I have the honor of sharing the moment with my friend Alessandra.
Do you have any special workouts or healthy routines you do to prep for the show? What are they? AL: I step up my workouts to twice daily, and I try and eat as clean as possible—lots of lean protein and veggies.

How about favorite parts from Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows in years past? AL: One of my favorite moments was opening the Fashion Show back in 2008.
