Jimmy Coco will use 3.5 liters of fake tan for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. The renowned beautician—who has previously bronzed Kim Kardashian—has revealed his top tanning secrets ahead of his ninth year working on the annual lingerie show in London later tonight.
According to the Daily Telegraph online, Jimmy uses up to three coats of tanner on each model, who is affectionately referred to as a Victoria's Secret Angel, which takes approximately 25 minutes per layer and lasts for seven days.
The false tan connoisseur told the Telegraph fashion team how his process involves over 40 cans, which totals almost 3.5 liters of product.
Jimmy has plenty of tools to help him along the way, including a mini airbrush applicator, two tanning tents and a 24-foot hose.
When asked why the models require so much lotion, he said, "Angels have the most beautiful long legs, which require lots of tanning liquid."
The "tan man" then revealed how a chance encounter with Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr lead him to his current role in the lingerie runway show.
He shared, "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.
"Soon, all of the Angels were asking for a tan and I have been hired to be Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Tan Man ever since."
