Watch what happens behind-the-scenes at a Victoria’s Secret casting

AS IS tradition, Victoria’s Secret has released the first in its Road to the Runway video series, which details the making of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show — from day one to show day.

First up, the casting.

Released via Youtube today, the first video goes inside the casting process in New York, following model hopefuls auditioning to be in the show.

Australia’s own Victoria Lee, plus the likes of Dilone and Roosmarijn de Kok, are spotted as the castings include new and returning models — but notably absent are any Angels, who don’t have to audition for the show.

Casting director Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou calls the selection process “rigorous” and it is clearly just as nerve wracking for Victoria’s Secret as it is for the models. Everything including walk, portfolio and attitude is taken into account.

Calling it the “best line-up ever”, Neophitou-Apostolou definitely has us excited for Shanghai come November.
