Because how else would they get there? The Victoria's Secret Angels boarded a flying pink photo-op bound for the Sexiest Show on Earth this weekend. Like the runway event, it was understated and dare we say, high fashion. Models arrived in hot pink scarves and matching glittery sweatshirts. Boarding passes were pink and served no purpose other than a photo prop. And once on board, activities ranged from making kissy faces and peace signs to pretending to sleep while having your photo taken. In other words, just your normal commuter flight.
