The countdown is on to one of the biggest days of a Victoria's Secret model's life: The annual fashion show.

Beauties such as Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, Behati Prinsloo, Karlie Kloss and Lily Aldridge will strut down the catwalk in gorgeous and colorful lingerie at this year's event, which takes place in London on Dec. 2 and will air on CBS on Dec. 9.

They will be accompanied by performers such as Taylor Swift, who rocked the show last year as well, plus Ariana Grande,Ed Sheeran and Hozier. And Ambrosio and Lima, two of Victoria's Secret's most veteran and popular "Angels," or spokemodels, will each wear the famous jeweled Fantasy Bra, worth $2 MILLION each.

Getting runway ready isn't easy, especially for the American models who probably, like most people in the United States, just recently celebrated the biggest food holiday in the country, Thanksgiving.

Here's a look at what several Victoria's Secret models have been doing in recent weeks ahead of the big day.
