The scene backstage at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show — held last night at the London Coliseum — isn’t like most fashion shows, or really like any other place on earth. There is an epic amount of security to get in — members of the press were asked to provide government-issued I.D. and have their bags sniffed by dogs — and, when they got through, they were greeted by a gaggle of glossy, manicured models who cheerfully Instagrammed each other’s kissy-faces, talked enthusiastically about their kale diets and workout habits — and, on occasion, even shared their anxiety dreams.
The Cut sent photographer Ewen Spencer into the fray, to photograph the scene before the show — including last-minute pedicures, phone calls, and interviews (many happening simultaneously), as well as the spectacle onstage. Click through our slideshow to see his portfolio.
