Fashion week festivities kicked off last night with a pair of dueling parties hosted by Victoria’s Secret models Candice Swanepoel and Jourdan Dunn. At Locanda Verde in Tribeca, Swanepoel celebrated her philanthropic efforts with Mother denim. The South African beauty and the L.A.-based brand teamed up on a capsule collection of denim and T-shirts (the “I Want to Swim in the Swanepoel” style is a surefire hit), with a portion of the proceeds benefiting mothers2mothers. The organization works to prevent the transmission of HIV from mothers to their babies.
Swanepoel, who was wearing a pair of high-waisted jeans from her collection, admitted it was the start and end of her NYFW duties. “I’m running away from the cold tomorrow,” she told Style.com. “I will be in Brazil with my boyfriend for a few days. Valentine’s Day? We don’t usually do much other than say something cute to each other—I think I am all set in the lingerie department.” Martha Hunt, on the other hand, was feeling pumped for her newest role at fashion week: showgoer. “I am so excited for Public School—it will be my very first time sitting front-row at a show. Not that there’s anything wrong with walking in shows—I love doing that—but it will just be such a different experience.”
Meanwhile, Jourdan Dunn and her VS cohorts Karlie Kloss and Toni Garrn partied a little farther uptown at No.8, where Dunn hosted the second Cell for Gratitude fete. The model, Illesteva, and Rochambeau joined forces to support the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America. Dunn’s 5-year-old son, Riley, suffers from sickle-cell anemia, and 100 percent of the proceeds from the evening’s sales went to the organization in his honor. The night ended with Mick Jagger jamming out on the dance floor.

Can’t stop, won’t stop! The Victoria’s Secret Angels have been pretty darn busy these past few months, staging their first runway show in London and then filming their swimsuit special soon after. Right now, we’re smack-dab in the middle of Valentine’s Day season (in case you couldn’t tell by the pink and red candy displays taking over just about every drugstore) and naturally, Victoria’s Secret is doing a bit of promotion around the holiday. After all, sexy lingerie is a Valentine’s Day essential.
Yesterday, Angels Lily Aldridge and Candice Swanepoel were on hand for an early Valentine’s Day celebration, where they chatted with the press, each clad in pretty pink frocks — Lily opting for a curve-hugging Roland Mouret dress and Candice going the ladylike route in an Antonio Berardi dress with a full skirt and pockets.
We caught up with both Angels to get the tea on what they’re doing for Valentine’s Day and what we can expect from Victoria’s Secret’s upcoming swimsuit special, airing February 26 on CBS.
theFashionSpot: Valentine’s Day is coming up. What are your plans?
Candice Swanepoel: I have no plans yet. My schedule is terrible. I don’t do anything super extravagant on Valentine’s Day, usually. If I’m away from my boyfriend, I’ll just hang out with the girls, see a movie, drink wine.
Lily Aldridge: I think my husband is going to cook me a meal Valentine’s Day night, which is my favorite kind of date. I like being home and cozy.
tFS: What kind of things does he cook?
LA: He does an amazing steak, and we usually get a nice bottle of red wine to go with it.
tFS: What’s the best Valentine’s Day gift you’ve ever gotten?
LA: A card my daughter made for me last year — a little heart card.
CS: I love to get flowers. I love to fill my house with flowers. That, and a personalized note or an email saying how much you love me.
tFS: You just returned from filming the VS swimsuit special in Puerto Rico. Tell us a little about that experience.
LA: We had so much fun, it was the first time VS has ever done a swim special, which is going to come out February 26. We had so much fun, we did this amazing Top Gun scene where we emulated the scene when they’re all on the volleyball court, so I can’t wait for people to see it. [The special] gives a glimpse into our lives and behind the scenes of the swim shoot.
tFS: Did Joan [Smalls] show you around?
LA: Joan showed Behati [Prinsloo] around. She kind of took her around Puerto Rico, and having Joan there was amazing, her spiciness and those Latina roots. It was so fun! She was teaching me how to do the dances and she made me feel a little bit of that spice myself!
tFS: Did she teach you how to bachata?
LA: She did! She’s still trying! It’s hard, but she said I ws doing good!
tFS: Besides dancing, what was one of your favorite moments in Puerto Rico?
LA: We had so many! One amazing moment was when Maroon 5 performed, and it was just the Angels and Maroon 5 on the beach doing an acoustic version of “Animals.” It was so beautiful to see Behati and her husband there — just a beautiful moment with the two of them there and the bonfire and all of us being together.
CS: It was so nice to spend so much time with the girls. We see each other, but here and there.
tFS: You went from doing the show in London and then having to do this one soon after. How was getting filmed for another big show after the holidays like?
LA: It was good! I was tan, I got to be warm, it was fun. The swim shoots are so different and it’s not a live audience like the VS Fashion Show, where people are there and taking your picture. This one is a little more relaxed, like swimsuit trips are, it’s not like the crazy ones we do for the show.
tFS: What was the best thing you ate in Puerto Rico?
CS: I’m a big fan of rice and beans. I have a bit of Brazilian culture in me and they eat that there, too. I also love tostones. Ah, yes! They’re delicious. I just love the traditional meals they have — you’re making me hungry!
tFS: Lastly, do you have any tips for singles on Valentine’s Day?
CS: Don’t look for a boyfriend on Valentine’s Day!
The Victoria’s Secret Angels are some of the most desired women in the world: perfectly-toned bodies, million dollar smiles, and legs for days. That’s why their annual fashion show makes international headlines. That’s why everyone woman wants to know their workout regime. And that’s why celebrities like Adam Levine and Ed Westwick date them (Levine actually married Angel Behati Prinsloo in 2014). So how does a regular guy get in on the game?
Just in time for Valentines Day, Yahoo Style caught up with Angels Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge at Manhattan’s Victoria’s Secret flagship store, where the two offered advice on the best gifts for for Valentine’s Day. Though, we were more interested in how to score a date with an Angel.
While Swanepoel claims that she’s a “low-key gal who’s really easy to please,” Aldridge has some strict rules like “no pick up lines, EVER.” The two offer some helpful tips for the ordinary guy who can muster the courage to ask out an Angel.
Rule One: Be yourself.
Candice Swanepoel: “It’s funny how every guy is so shy—they would never try to ask an Angel out on a date. Just go for it! Just be compassionate, and a gentleman.
Lily Aldridge: “Be funny. You can always win a girl over by making her laugh.”
Rule Two: Don’t try to show off.
CS: “Be sincere, not like ‘oh I have this, I do this…’ for me, it’s something more personal like a home-cooked meal, or somewhere with a great vibe.”
What about a really fancy, over-the-top dinner at the most expensive place in town?
Rule Three: Take them to the 50 Shades of Grey premiere.
This rule was a resounding YES from both ladies.
Rule Four: No cheesy gifts.
CS: “Flowers are always a yes.”
LA: “Heart locket pendants are an absolute NO.”
Rule Five: All Angels love lingerie.
CS: “Lingerie is ALWAYS GOOD”
LA: “YES- Victoria’s Secret, of course!”
Now that we’ve been properly briefed on Angel, dating etiquette, who’s most likely to accept my date?
CS: “Elsa [Hosk] is single!”
LA: “Candice would love to go on a date with you!”
CS: “I’m gonna kill you, Lily!!”
