Prepare Yourselves With This Guide To The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Before we know it, 2015 will be over, which means there's a slew of boxes to tick off our to-do list before New Year's rolls around. If you haven't already made a dent in yours yet, it might look a little something like this: "Survive Black Friday," "Find tax stuff," etc. But for those of us who write about clothes for a living (and those of us who prefer to admire from afar), our calendars have one very important occasion to celebrate tomorrow: the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show broadcast.

The premise of this year's show isn't unlike the others — models walking down a sparkly runway in lingerie that looks more like sexy Halloween costumes — except for the fact that Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid are making their Victoria's Secret debuts as the newest (and, arguably, most famous) angels to date. Sure, The Weeknd will be there, and Selena Gomez, too, but the world has been nervously anticipating this thing since the extravaganza was filmed on November 10. And in angel years, that's a long time, considering the show happens only annually.

Needless to say — bated breath — we're excited to watch. But, in order to prepare for such next-level pomp and circumstance, proper pre-show rituals are required. Forget the physical, and focus on the mental: When Lily Aldridge steps out in the highly anticipated (and pricey!) Fantasy Bra (this year's "Fireworks" version rang in at $2 million), your mind might just explode, so the right security measures must take place. Whether that looks like a face mask, a bowl of chips, a glass of wine, or several hundred thousand crunches, we feel you. Click through for just a few key examples of how to get your mind right before the most ridiculous, unmissable style showdown of the year.

Next, look at your friends and pretend you're backstage giving the Angels your sincerest pep talk as they get into first looks.

Including sissying that face.

And the first one comes roaring out of the gate! Who will it be? Lily? Joan? Behati?

And maybe this one.

When you look over to your friends during the commercial break and they're just like…

Then that moment comes when you try on a pair of your pretend Nicholas Kirkwood heels and start going like this.

And then there's that moment when you leave the room, come back in your own Victoria's Secret Fashion Show-themed getup of blankets and pillows, and your friends start going in on you like a moth to a flame.

And you're just sitting there like…

But they keep going.

But then you fire back with even shadier shade with one of these.

And we're back! Time for The Weeknd to perform your song of the year. Oh, there's Kendall!

We repeat: There's Kendall.

When you have to defend Kendall against the Kardashian-Jenner-hating friend we all have.

And, finally, you're post-finale and realize you totally just had your own Victoria's Secret Fashion Show right there in your own living room and nobody got in your way of sashaying down your runway made of couch cushions because you're just as cool as Gigi Hadid in a pair of angel wings. Sigh. Back to real life.
