Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Page 1
The best and most absurd outfits from last night’s blingtastic Victoria’s Secret boob-fest.
The NSA could learn a thing or two about surveillance from us.
Ah, the Onion. Our go-to source for fake news and a little mid-day levity. Today the parody site is reporting on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which, as they tell it, drew huge ratings this year thanks to its popularity amongst “men who don’t know that actual pornography exists.”
Last night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was, as expected, completely over the top. And we loved every minute of it, from the sparkly (edited) outfits to Justin Bieber‘s dance break. But what goes into making those bedazzled bras and undies? We got the inside scoop straight from Swarovski.
We’ve already given you the inside scoop on what went down at this year’s annual
sparklefest Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but the extravaganza officially airs tonight — and we’ve got your livestream right here. Tune in at 10 p.m. EST to catch Karlie’s new ‘do in action, watch Bieber make the moves on some models, and hope that, indeed, the ill-conceived Native American-inspired runway look doesn’t make the final cut.
Victoria’s Secret received plenty of well-deserved approbation for their role in helping out with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts in the week leading up to their annual fashion show, and this year’s spectacle was every bit the glittery, star-studded bash that we’ve come to expect. But all is not well in lingerie land, after the company sent (white, American model) Karlie Kloss down the runway in a feathered headdress, buckskin bikini, and oodles of turquoise jewelry as part of the “Calendar Girls” segment of the show.
Big hair, bling-y bras, and Justin Bieber — yup, we could only be talking about the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Last night the Angels touched down at the Lexington Avenue Armory in the midst of a bitter snowstorm for the annual lingerie extravaganza, and man did they put on a show!
When Hurricane Sandy hit the Eastern seaboard last Monday, the armory of the New York Army National Guard’s 69th Infantry Regiment, along with the rest of lower Manhattan, lost heat, power, internet, and most cell phone service — all of which are essential to coordinating their disaster relief efforts.
After performances by Jay-Z, Kanye West, Maroon 5, and Nicki Minaj in 2011, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show sure has found themselves a tough act to follow. Luckily, they’ve pulled three huge names to head up this year’s musical stylings.
Before she was busy intimidating talk show hosts, guzzling protein shakes, and popping out babies, an 18-year-old Adriana Lima walked her first show for Victoria’s Secret. Apparently she even told the president of the company that the occasion marked “her first day as a woman.”
Congratulations to Alessandra Ambrosio, who just announced she’s pregnant with her second child!
Why Victoria’s Secret felt the need to photoshop Candice Swanepoel in their ad for last night’s fashion show is beyond us. Furthermore, why they felt the need to photoshop her knee and/or lower leg is even more insane. Fine, smudge out that wrinkle of skin that so bothers the art director. Or add some shadow to her already infuriatingly sharp cheekbones. But mangling her leg so that it resembles nothing so much as a strangely shaped blob of her skin? That’s just a waste of time.
If producing the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is a big production, then you know its viewing party isn’t just going to be a simple cocktail hour. Which means Angel Miranda Kerr couldn’t possibly show up in any old cocktail dress, now could she?
In case you’ve been looking at pictures of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, wondering how it’s possible for Adriana Lima to look sinewy and curvaceous all at once, it’s because she went on a crazypants diet. We called it ridiculous earlier this week, and anchor dude Anderson Cooper echoed that sentiment last night on CNN.
There are fashion shows, and then there are several-million dollar mulitmedia and fashion extravaganzas. And last night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, with it’s neon wings and supermodels and performances by Kanye West, was most definitely of the latter variety.
While Victoria’s Secrets Angels are surely genetically blessed, don’t be fooled by appearances. These women do some pretty crazy things to look like they do on the runway.
Kanye has a well-documented history with models. The model song, the model Twitter follows, the model music video — we’ve seen it all! So yeah, it’s pretty appropriate that the rapper is headlining the Victoria’s Secret fashion show.
Though the show itself won’t be seen by the general public until November 30th, Victoria’s Secret held its annual fashion show extravaganza last night and the pictures today are worth a thousand words. Let’s take an annotated look, shall we?
