Candice Swanepoel is a total babe, and she owns it. In her latest interview with Derek Blasberg, the Victoria’s Secret model opens up about growing up on a farm, living in Brazil and New York, and of course, being naked.
To be fair, “fa la la la la, la la la la” is a bit of a tongue twister.
We all know the ins and outs of wardrobe staples — a plain white tee, dark denim, and a timeless LBD come to mind — but the same goes for beauty. We wanted to find out the must-have products that our favorite fashion insiders never leave home without: the go-to goodies that instantly put a pep in our most stylish friends’ steps. This week, Karlie Kloss fills us in on how to get runway-ready lips.
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.
We’ve had Victoria’s Secret on the brain today, with the brand’s annual fashion show bonanza set to hit our TV screens at 10PM tonight in all its bras-and-Bieber glory. But there’s another reason we’ve been pondering the lingerie company. Yesterday a press release was sent around touting a new line called PINK loves CONSENT, which purported to be Victoria’s Secret’s “new line of styles that reminds customers and their sexual partners to practice consent.”
Justin Bieber had a helluva time performing at this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and in a new video, he shows off his new model friends and their lip-synching abilities.
Last week, Greenpeace released a report titled “Toxic Thread: The Big Fashion Stitch-Up”, which called out numerous fast fashion retailers for the use of hazardous chemicals in garment manufacturing, the lingerie behemoth among them. According to the research, 50% of the four Victoria’s Secret samples purchased for the study tested positive for hazardous and potentially cancer-causing chemicals. All of which doesn’t exactly mesh well with a certain Angel’s commitment to all things clean and natural.
Last Friday, Fox & Friends‘ Brian Kilmeade made a sexist joke that the network’s female anchors are picked from a Victoria’s Secret catalog. Of course, we never take anything that comes out of that network seriously, but it turns out that one of Fox’s anchors is actually a former Victoria’s Secret model. Well, color us surprised.
The strange things that happen on Fox News don’t really faze us anymore, but somehow, anchors and show hosts still manage to do things that raise our eyebrows. On Friday’s radio show Fox & Friends with Brian Kilmeade and Gretchen Carlson, a nice listener called in to compliment Alisyn Camerota, a Fox anchor who was filling in for Carlson. What happened next is nothing short of sexist.
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!
Karlie Kloss just chopped off her locks, and we are totally loving her new look.
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.
If you’re still looking for a last-minute Halloween costume, well, look no further than Coco Rocha‘s slighty-scary-mostly-trippy video for Vs. Magazine.
The annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show seems to get a bit more ridiculous each year, but we still love it. This November, oiled-up models will strut their stuff in barely-there lingerie and big ol’ Angel wings to the tunes of Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Bruno Mars. The show’s last look is traditionally a very fancy and expensive bra, and this year’s wearer is Alessandra Ambrosio.
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.
And yet another model Victoria’s Secret model gets maimed by Photoshop!
Victoria’s Secret is just brimming with controversy these days, what with its overzealous airbrushing, insulting other models, and misleading packaging. Its latest scandal is a questionable ”Sexy Little Geisha” outfit.
