It's on! The 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is one of the most fun events of the fashion calendar year. It's sexy, it's loose, and it's certainly good times for the models strutting their stuff on the runways in a variety of bikinis and undies and for the fans watching at home. The show looks to have taken place and to have taped in Paris on Nov. 30, but it won't be airing immediately. That said, there was a lot of action taking place in what is pretty much viewed as the fashion capital of the world, from Lady Gaga rehearsing for her much-anticipated performance to Gigi Hadid taking selfies while getting ready for the fashionable festivities in her pink robe. While all eyes will eventually be on the catwalk, backstage is where it's really at.

While most of us can't attend the star-studded and mega glam event known as the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, we are still able to be transported there, thanks to all the candid, backstage snaps, many of which the participants shared on social media. Instagram and Twitter close the gap and make us feel like we have a front row seat to all the happenings backstage and behind the scenes.
