12 Angels Tell All at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

We figured that the girls who got their wings were probably tired of talking about their pre-show diets and exercise routines, so we asked them about the really important stuff, like guilty pleasures, personal theme songs, and their thoughts on Ryan Gosling.

If you could describe how you're feeling today in one word, what would it be?
Aware.

How does the casting for the Victoria's Secret show compare to that of a high fashion show like Chanel or Dior?
The vibe of the show is drastically different, it's much more commercial. The girls who are here are less editorial and are "commercially" pretty, whereas in high fashion you have different kinds of beauties — there are some girls who have really interesting looks to them, which is incredible, but not necessarily for the standard eye. Also, most of the girls here are a bit more curvy than the norm for high fashion shows. But there are a lot of high fashion, editorial models doing the show now, so I think it's great they've started to mix girls.

You're an Angel today, but what's your most sinful indulgence?
The Internet. I'm really addicted to my computer — it's so hard to drag me away, I spend so much time on Google.

If you could walk down the runway to any song ever, what would it be?
George Michael - "Too Funky"

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
"You're not going back again, you're moving forward." Or, "You look good, I love your wings!"

Finally, which is cuter: Ryan Gosling or a puppy?
I'd say Ryan.

If you could describe how you're feeling today in one word, what would it be?
Excited! But it's also nerve-wracking walking down the runway in my underwear — to me it's like a challenge after giving birth, I want to prove that I'm back!

You're an Angel today, but what's your most sinful indulgence?
There's a soap opera in Holland that I watch all the time called "Good Times, Bad Times." It's a little bit of comfort from home, you know?

If you could walk down the runway to any song ever, what would it be?
I love house music, so it would be Funkagenda - "Man With the Red Face."

If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

Finally, which is cuter: Ryan Gosling or a puppy?
Puppies — I love anything little.

If you could describe how you're feeling today in one word, what would it be?
Superexcited! One word.

How does the casting for the Victoria's Secret show compare to that of a high fashion show like Chanel or Dior?
The first big difference is that we have to walk in bathing suits, since it's so much about your body — we have to smile, have to act. In high fashion shows it's much more about the clothes, so it's about a strong, straight walk.

You're an Angel today, but what's your most sinful indulgence?
This sounds kind of boring, but I love to play cards. I spend nights with five friends playing poker and blackjack

Oh, so you mean gambling.
Yes! I love it — I'm obsessed.

If you could walk down the runway to any song ever, what would it be?
Beyonc - "Crazy in Love"

If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
I'd want him to say, "Go for it, no one's watching."

Finally, which is cuter: Ryan Gosling or a puppy?
Ryan! He's cute.

You're an Angel today, but what's your most sinful indulgence?
Definitely reality television. This is really embarrassing, but Jersey Shore.

If you could walk down the runway to any song ever, what would it be?
Maybe something by Queens of the Stone Age or Led Zeppelin, but I think I'll say Pink Floyd - "Run Like Hell."

If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
"Welcome!"

Finally, which is cuter: Ryan Gosling or a puppy?
A puppy. I'm married! But Ryan Gosling, you're a very handsome man and I think you're very talented. My husband [Caleb Followill of the Kings of Leon] thinks you're a great actor!

If you could describe how you're feeling today in one word, what would it be?
Ecstacy!

The Internet, for sure.

Lily Donaldson

If you could describe how you're feeling today in one word, what would it be?
Excited.

How does the casting for the Victoria's Secret show compare to that of a high fashion show like Chanel or Vuitton?
I think this show is really a celebration of being sexy and being a woman and being able to show your personality. They really encourage you to get out there and be yourself and have fun.

You're an Angel today, but what's your most sinful indulgence?
My sister's chocolate cake. It's pretty fucking awesome. Sorry I swore.

I'd want to do reggae dance hall, like Collie Budz - "Mamacita."

We're getting real deep here backstage at Victoria's Secret! I think I'd just want him to say that my family was there waiting to welcome me in.

Finally, which is cuter: Ryan Gosling or a puppy?
Probably a puppy. I'm sure a lot of people say Ryan so I'm sure he won't be too upset! There's just something about puppies, they're so warm and fuzzy and cute...

Karlie Kloss

If you could describe how you're feeling today in one word, what would it be?
One word? Overwhelmed! But, I'd also have to say the word of the day is "dream." I feel like I'm living a dream — I know it's a cliche, but growing up watching the supermodels like Gisele, Naomi, Heidi, and Tyra and idolizing them, and today getting to strap on a pair of wings and stride down that runway, it's pretty cool.

How does the casting for the Victoria's Secret show compare to that of a high fashion show like Chanel or Dior?
The girls go in wearing just their underwear! That's not the norm for a show casting. Usually you just throw on a pair of heels with what you're already wearing.

You're an Angel today, but what's your most sinful indulgence?
I'm pretty angelic most days, but I love sweets. I love to bake — I'm a sucker for a good chocolate chip cookie, especially if it's warm and right out of the oven. I'm going to make a big batch of those tomorrow and eat them ALL.

If you could walk down the runway to any song ever, what would it be?
I was named after Carly Simon, so I'd have to say one of her songs!

If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
Hopefully I'll be wearing a big ol' pair of Victoria's Secret wings, so he'll say, "I love your wings!"

Finally, which is cuter: Ryan Gosling or a puppy?
OK, if we're talking about Ryan Gosling in The Notebook, then yes. But if we're talking about those cute little puppies from the Downy commercials, the puppy might win, I'm sorry.

If you could describe how you're feeling today in one word, what would it be?
Excited!

How does the casting for the Victoria's Secret show compare to that of a high fashion show like Chanel or Vuitton?
When I went to the casting for this show, my heart almost beat out of my chest — I've never been so nervous in my life. You have to put a bikini on, and in a regular casting you don't have to smile and be all happy, so it's very different. Also, with all of the cameras around, it was a lot creepier than normal.

You're an Angel today, but what's your most sinful indulgence?
Watching Jersey Shore.

If you could walk down the runway to any song ever, what would it be?
Probably a house song, something by Swedish House Mafia.

If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
"Well done!"

Finally, which is cuter: Ryan Gosling or a puppy?
A puppy.

If you could describe how you're feeling today in one word, what would it be?
Anxious!

You're an Angel today, but what's your most sinful indulgence?
Chocolate. Definitely.

Pharell's song with Swedish House Mafia - "One (Your Name)"

If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
"Welcome home!"

Finally, which is cuter: Ryan Gosling or a puppy?
Ryan Gosling! Oh yeah, he's hot.

Behati Prinsloo

If you could describe how you're feeling today in one word, what would it be?
It's two words: nervous and excited at the same time!

How does the casting for the Victoria's Secret show compare to that of a high fashion show like Chanel or Vuitton?
Usually you go in, they give you a pair of underwear and you do your walk in front of a bunch of people — it's quite nerve-wracking! I don't have to do it anymore, thank goodness, but they probably see 200 or 300 girls. It's a long process, but they always pick amazing girls and it's such a great experience and opportunity to be here.

You're an Angel today, but what's your most sinful indulgence?
Sugar! I love dark chocolate — I could eat it 'til I puke. I also love a good cheesy movie, and I'm kind of addicted to my computer.

If you could walk down the runway to any song ever, what would it be?
Maybe something by the White Stripes or some good soul.

If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
"Let's party!"

Finally, which is cuter: Ryan Gosling or a puppy?
Ryan Gosling, for sure. Oh my God! Ryan, call me!

Candice Swanepoel

If you could describe how you're feeling today in one word, what would it be?
Anxious.

How does the casting for the Victoria's Secret show compare to that of a high fashion show like Chanel or Vuitton?
Every girl wants it so badly, and it's different meeting people for the first time in your lingerie. You also get the chance to show your personality, whereas if you're at a casting for Givenchy, it's more about wearing the clothes and staying quiet.

You're an Angel today, but what's your most sinful indulgence?
TV shows like Jersey Shore! I'm also watching Breaking Bad and Walking Dead right now. Besides that, Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream.

If you could walk down the runway to any song ever, what would it be?
Probably an electronic song with an amazing beat.

If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
"You can relax now."

Finally, which is cuter: Ryan Gosling or a puppy?
A puppy, for sure. I have such a sweet spot for dogs!

Miranda Kerr

If you could describe how you're feeling today in one word, what would it be?
I'm feeling quite calm today, so I guess I would have to say "present."

How does the casting for the Victoria's Secret show compare to that of a high fashion show like Chanel or Vuitton?
The thing I love most about this show is that we have an opportunity to interact with the audience and have fun — everyone here really enjoys themselves. With other fashion shows, it's really all about the clothes.

You're an Angel today, but what's your most sinful indulgence?
Massages.

If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
"Welcome home!"
