The Victoria’s Secret Angels are some of the most desired women in the world: perfectly-toned bodies, million dollar smiles, and legs for days. That’s why their annual fashion show makes international headlines. That’s why everyone woman wants to know their workout regime. And that’s why celebrities like Adam Levine and Ed Westwick date them (Levine actually married Angel Behati Prinsloo in 2014). So how does a regular guy get in on the game?
Just in time for Valentines Day, Yahoo Style caught up with Angels Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge at Manhattan’s Victoria’s Secret flagship store, where the two offered advice on the best gifts for for Valentine’s Day. Though, we were more interested in how to score a date with an Angel.
While Swanepoel claims that she’s a “low-key gal who’s really easy to please,” Aldridge has some strict rules like “no pick up lines, EVER.” The two offer some helpful tips for the ordinary guy who can muster the courage to ask out an Angel.
Rule One: Be yourself.
Candice Swanepoel: “It’s funny how every guy is so shy—they would never try to ask an Angel out on a date. Just go for it! Just be compassionate, and a gentleman.
Lily Aldridge: “Be funny. You can always win a girl over by making her laugh.”
Rule Two: Don’t try to show off.
CS: “Be sincere, not like ‘oh I have this, I do this…’ for me, it’s something more personal like a home-cooked meal, or somewhere with a great vibe.”
What about a really fancy, over-the-top dinner at the most expensive place in town?
Rule Three: Take them to the 50 Shades of Grey premiere.
This rule was a resounding YES from both ladies.
Rule Four: No cheesy gifts.
CS: “Flowers are always a yes.”
LA: “Heart locket pendants are an absolute NO.”
Rule Five: All Angels love lingerie.
CS: “Lingerie is ALWAYS GOOD”
LA: “YES- Victoria’s Secret, of course!”
Now that we’ve been properly briefed on Angel, dating etiquette, who’s most likely to accept my date?
CS: “Elsa [Hosk] is single!”
LA: “Candice would love to go on a date with you!”
CS: “I’m gonna kill you, Lily!!”
