What does it take to get Miranda Kerr‘s perfectly even golden hue that she sports on the Victoria’s Secret runway season after season? The expertise of spray tan guru Jimmy Coco, who has been bronzing the bods of supermodels like Miranda Kerr, Candice Swanepoel, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lindsay Ellingson, and Doutzen Kroes for nine years to ensure they’ll shimmer in their skimpy looks. According to The Telegraph, Coco got the gig by approaching Kerr in 2006 and offering her a free spray tan. “The VS Fashion Show came to Los Angeles in 2006. I lived a block away from (then) Kodak Theater where the show was happening. I waited in the hotel lobby and introduced myself to Miranda Kerr as she walked by, and offered her a spray tan,” Coco told The Telegraph. “Soon, all of the Angels were asking for a tan.”
But other than his magic touch, what exactly do these super tans entail? Two to three layers of tan on each model, 40 cans of tan, three golden guns, one mini airbrush pump, three airbrush stylus, 24 feet of tanning hose, 10 minutes of prep per model, and 15 minutes of application. There are over 100 layers of tan on the Victoria Secret runway, which is taking place tomorrow in London. Eat your heart out Snooki!
