The Victoria's Secret Angels are back in LA to reveal their 8th annual What is Sexy? List, which features major celebs like Zoe Saldana, Rihanna and Beyonce. Following last year's Erin Heatherton-graced bash at Mr. C in Beverly Hills, top models Adriana Lima, Lily Aldridge and Behati Prinsloo braved the SoCal heat to host this year's fete at SaMo's Shutters on the Beach.

Guests were treated to manicures and light refreshments, and encouraged to snap a "Sexy Selfie" while chatting up the hosts. Beyond toasting the 2013 list, the Angels were also celebrating the famed lingerie brand's Flawless by Victoria's Secret and Very Sexy collections. We sat down with the girls to talk all things sexy and summer, but not before overhearing the obvious from another guest: "I can't wait to go home and work out."

What is your go-to summer beauty product?
Lily: "In the summer, I love a bronzer or something similar. We're always on the beaches, so we need to look tan. I just love having a nice glow."
Behati: "Rose water spray. I'm obsessed with it, in a bad way! I spray it on my feet, it's so good. It's so fresh and I always have it with me."

What will you be wearing this summer?
Adriana: "Bikinis, bikinis and more bikinis! Shorts and little flowy dresses."
Lily: "I love a little cotton dress, something easy with leather sandals. Just easy-breezy."

Any exciting plans?
Adriana: "Spending time with family. I'm going to be in Miami, but I'm not sure. We haven't made any plans yet, so we'll see."
Lily: "I'm going to England. My husband [Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill] is going on tour so I'm going with him there. It's going to be really fun shopping!"
Behati: "I want to go to Costa Rica, I've never been there."

Any albums we need to add to our summer listening?
Adriana: "The whole album of Pink Martini; it's really good! I love it."
Lily: "I love Empire of the Sun; I think it's such a good summer record and they're actually about to make a new record so I'm super excited."

And because we just have to know, what do you find sexy?
Lily: "I think personality is the sexiest thing and a sense of humor. Jennifer Lawrence won Sexiest Sense of Humor and I think that's perfect. I'm so drawn to her because of her personality. I think that is very sexy in a man or a woman."
Behati: "Confidence is sexy. Having a good sense of humor, not taking themselves too seriously and good manners."
