There are still a few hours until the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show models hit the Paris runway, but the catwalkers are very busy warming up during their makeup and hair sessions. Rather than text, sleep or get in their last series of burpees backstage, every single model is working on her sexiest Blue Steel. In fact, they’re so dedicated to nailing their poses, they started using everything at their disposal to get a good shot, including their director’s chairs.

We were so impressed by the many, many ways the models found sexy inspiration, that we collected the most amazing poses below.

Does Lily Aldridge have a wind machine follow her around everywhere? Because we want to know how this pose is possible without one.

We call Bregje Heinen’s pose the “I’m still tired and want to lay down, but this chair is all I have.”

While one pose is more impressive than the next, we shouldn’t be too surprised: These are the same models who look radiant while covered in gold face masks and never have a hair out of place during their grueling workouts. Guess that makes them truly otherworldly.
