Call it a model airplane, I guess…

November 13, 2007

klum-180.jpgSome of you have been concerned that we haven’t met our photo quota of those elusive supermodels in 2007, as discussed recently in my blog post Are Victoria’s Secret models turning shy? 

It appears we’re trying to make up for it at the end of the year, starting with 15 shots of Victoria’s Secret models arriving on their own plane.

It isn’t clear to me exactly what the deal is on this plane. Like, do the models pilot it and everything? ”This is Heidi Klum and I’ll be your captain….”  I think we may safely assume not a morsel of food is served on the flight.

How do you equip an aircraft whose purpose is to allow a load of supermodels to look their very best the instant they arrive? Do they have one long makeup mirror, and blow dryers at every seat, or do they just blast each model with Scotchgard when they board?

A slideshow of the arrival
