Sexy Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Recap!
The VS Angels strutted their stuff on the runway and oh, we wished we were them!
Last night on CBS, the angels from Victoria’s Secret landed in New York City to strut their fabulous selves and their sexy lingerie down the catwalk at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Familiar faces included models Doutzen Kroes, Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Erin Heatherton with some fresh faces like Karlie Kloss and Shanina Shaik making their first turn on the runway this year. With Victoria’s Secret, it’s all about going big- big wings, bigger smiles, and flaunting those awesomely big boobs and super duper long legs like there’s no tomorrow!
I might not have been in the audience at the actual show, but watching it at home, it was completely mesmerizing. Had I been in the actual audience I think it would have been sensory overload- every detail of the hour long spectacular was so lavish and rich that I had to keep picking up my jaw from the ground. The show kicked off with a quick behind the scenes look of the models getting ready for the runway, giddy with excitement. Once they marched out to a swarm of flashing cameras, it was clear that this excitement wasn’t staying backstage, Kisses were blown to the audience, grins were ear to ear wide, and Chanel Iman was tossing around adorable winks like they were candy to the audience that ate it up.
When Miranda Kerr came out, a jeweled crown upon her head, husband Orlando Bloom stood up to applaud her- awww!
The models quickly went into superhero mode as Kanye West came out to say, “I lost my superhero. Now she’s my superangel!” before launching into a performance of “Stronger” while the ladies worked the stage in capes and huge wings.
The infamous $2.5 million dollar bra did make an appearance, as worn by Miranda Kerr who kicked off her walk to Maroon 5 performing “Moves Like Jagger.” Ladies, if you thought Orlando’s applause for Miranda was totes adorbs, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine’s girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna was in the show too. Adam didn’t hesitate to serenade her all the way down the catwalk and plant a big kiss on her cheek. Way, way too cute!
Jay-Z and Kanye took the stage together to perform as we were then treated to more behind the scenes looks at how the show comes together. “It’s amazing what they can do with a bra and a pair of panties!” Doutzen Kroes said on the clothing designers for the show who spend an entire year making the costumes for the angels. And if you don’t believe that it can take a year to dress up some lingerie, guess again. Alessandra Ambrosio wore a pair of wings that were gold-plated, 22 pounds, and studded with 105,000 Swarovski crystals. That’s just one pair of wings, everyone, one pair!
The best part of the show was watching the models as they were laughing, smiling, and having an amazing time together. You could really tell they were all great friends, with clips of one another describing one another’s personalities. Lily Aldridge is the “rock chick angel” of the group while Erin Heatherton reigns supreme as “the sexy nerd.” The evening concluded with Nicki Minaj performing “Super Bass” with the angels decked out in Day-Glo colors and jamming to the beat on their final walk on the runway. Oh Victoria’s Secret, can we pretty please have this show more than just once a year? Angels make dreams come true, right?
