Behind the Scenes: Alex and Marianne at the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show
What Alex had to say:
"This year marks the 18th Annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion show, but it was just my second time photographing backstage at the event. Marianne and I crowded into the room with other journalists and photographers to capture the models getting ready for the big show. The hardest parts were navigating around all the people (the media, makeup artists and publicists) and figuring out how to achieve the best lighting in an all-pink room! After that it was a breeze. Who could complain about spending a little time with the Angels?" —Alex Reside, Photo Editor, InStyle.com
What Marianne had to say:
"When the credentials photographer at the Victoria’s Secret on-site press room told me I could do whatever I wanted in the picture for my pass, how could I pass up the opportunity to try out my best Karlie Kloss impression?
This was my second year covering the backstage beauty portion with our photo editor Alex. After speaking to lead makeup artist Dick Page and lead hairstylist Orlando Pita on the models’ glamorous looks, I took a few notes for my own beauty routine, and even found out VS Angel Erin Heatherton and I had a few things in common—namely, our appreciation for the art of primping. “Every day that I work for Victoria’s Secret, I always learn something new about how to do my own hair and makeup,” she told me. “I may miss the party because I’m taking too long to get ready, but for me, getting ready is like 90% of the fun.” —Marianne Mychaskiw, Assistant Editor, InStyle.com
