See Kendall Jenner Go from Makeup-Free to Runway-Ready - and Earn Her Wings! - at the Victoria's Secret Show
See how the 21-year-old model prepped behind-the-scenes before taking the runway at her second Victoria's Secret Fashion Show appearance
It’s official: Kendall Jenner got her wings. The model just walked the runway (joining seasoned vets Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima, plus newcomer Bella Hadid in her first appearance) in her second Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show today in Paris and finally got to don the show’s coveted wings.
The 21-year-old model, who’s typically known more for her high-fashion runway appearances than lingerie, wore a statement-making look for her first outfit of the evening. Jenner gave off Brazilian vibes in her colorful red and gold look, which featured bustier-style lace red bra, a tiny lace thong, thigh-high gold and aqua-embellished red boots and ultra-huge feather blue wings. To add on to her heavy wings, the model piled on colorful chunky jewelry only she could pull off.
Her second look didn’t feature wings quite as big, but nonetheless, she still got them. This sexy maid-inspired outfit featured feathered black wings and a lacy black and white tuxedo-esuque bra and panties.
Before the show, Jenner, along with the 50 other models walking the runway tonight, had a pre-show glam party (and we were there!), prepping their hair and makeup in the matching, classic pink silk Victoria’s Secret robes. To get ready for the runway, lead makeup artist Tom Pecheux and hairstylist (and Beachwaver spokesperson) Sarah Potempa transformed Jenner for her runway ready look.
Although Potempa told PeopleStyle that models would be embracing their natural cuts and textures for this year’s show, Jenner did get some extensions clipped into her hair for added volume, which were then cut to match her natural shoulder length style.
Then Potempa jumped in and gave Jenner’s pin-straight hair those iconic beachy Victoria’s Secret model waves using the Beachwaver. The result? A soft curled look we’re dying to to do on ourselves ASAP.

For makeup, Jenner stepped on the runway in a dewy “her-skin-but-better” look: enough foundation coverage to hide imperfections (without looking overly done up), touched up brows, simple eye makeup, a pinky nude lip and major lashes.
Before going out in her first colorful look, the model shared a photo on Instagram posing in her completed pre-show wardrobe. Jenner showed off her slim physique in her pink robe draped over a sparkly silver and lace bra with a matching pink and silver lacy thong and flip flops.
And after the show, she socialed a statement we are sure many of her fellow models share this evening: “Burger, please!”
The 21-year-old recently told InStyle about her pre-show jitters, even after walking plenty of other high-profile runways.
“I’m so excited, and nervous,” she said. “Last year, I had two looks that were very covered in certain spots. But this year, I have one look that is kind of covered and one that is pretty exposed — so I’m a little nervous about that!”
