J. Lo was just the beginning. Turns out that the same fixative that helped hold her infamous Versace gown in place at the 2000 Grammys was also a must-have at the steamy Victoria’s Secret NYC fashion show, which ABC aired Nov. 15. Supermodels—including Tyra Banks, Gisele Bündchen, and Heidi Klum—used heavy-duty, double-stick tape to secure their feet into their stilettos in order to avoid tripping on the slick catwalk. But the sticky stuff really came through when the mannequins strutted in their skimpy ensembles. ”We were taped, and everything was measured to make sure nothing moved,” says model Molly Sims, who struck poses in bustiers and angel wings. ”When they said you’re gonna be in underwear on prime time, I said, ‘Oh my God, just cover my butt!”’
