both pin­ing for the burger that Ken­dall snaps her­self eat­ing later.

When they go, I make a bee­line for the huge buf­fet, which I ex­pect to be empty, but in­stead I have to fight off Adri­ana Lima to grab a salad: the girls seem to be mak­ing the most of the food. I re­sist the urge to shout ‘BUT HOW ARE YOU DO­ING IT?’ at Jas­mine Tookes. It’s an hour be­fore show time and I’m about to be ush­ered out to my seat to watch the show when I re­alise there’s a sep­a­rate ‘body fin­ish­ing area’ that I hadn’t no­ticed. This is where the girls have their skin prepped just be­fore walk­ing onto the cat­walk. It’s all a bit se­cre­tive, but one of the artists tells me the girls are buffed and shim­mered for the fi­nal time be­fore hit­ting the stage. I’ve got a prime

view­ing spot for the show and when the lights go down, the at­mos­phere crack­les. Elsa Hosk walks out – it’s men­tal, un­like any cat­walk show I’ve ever been to – and Lady Gaga ap­pears singing Mil­lion Rea­sons and is AMAZ­ING. Even Bella and her re­cent ex, The Weeknd, seem in full cou­ple mode on the cat­walk.

For­mer An­gel Doutzen Kroes is sit­ting near me and all the An­gels are wav­ing to her as they pass by. Alessandra Am­bro­sio even mouths: ‘You should be here’ to her. Aww.

Ob­vi­ously I’m also keep­ing a close eye on the FROW but Gigi’s beau Zayn Ma­lik and Irina Shayk’s man Bradley Cooper are nowhere to be seen. Boo.

When it ends in a rain of glit­ter con­fetti, I feel ex­hausted. Like I said, these girls must have su­per­pow­ers to get through it all and look as good as they do…

The pre-show area is manic but a lot of fun

Look’s Ly­dia amid the beau­ti­ful chaos
