Celebrities like St Barts, St Barts like fashion, St Barts has great beaches …. so it is only natural that quite a few famous ads have been shot in St Barts.
Here, you will have a long glimpse of renowned female models such as Gisele Bundchen and Alessandra Ambrosio being photographed in St Barts. The shooting was made for Victoria’s Secret Swim 2007 collection.
Every year, the Victoria’s Secret team comes to St. Barths to shoot models on the iconic beaches. Photogenic villas like Los Leones in Pointe Milou also often serve as a backdrop to these bikini photo shoots.
The American lingerie brand hires well-know models, so social media is often awash with St Barts celebrity sightings.
In the video, you can see the girls getting ready for the shooting, being shot, and then looking at the pictures.
The main location used in the video is the natural pools of Grand Fond. These pools are surrounded by rocks, have transparent water, and are linked to the sea. It is a 15-minute walk from the Grand Fond road. I admire the models, because I know that the hike to the pools is sometimes hazardous, along the cliff. And there are some sea urchins in the bottom of the pools, so I wonder whether the girls were wearing sandals in the water.
Other places in the video are: the pool of Le Sereno hotel, Gouverneur Beach, Saline Beach, and Gustavia. We love St Barts when it looks like that!
