In the majority of the cases the presentations of Victoria’s Secret are more than just a fashion show; it is a real show that doesn’t feature faceless models with no facial expression, but smiling women who are happy that they are wearing a certain kind of underwear.
This year the show was held in New York and there was a lot of extravaganza. The show was rich in encrusted lingerie, angel wings and fantasy costumes, but the main focus was the models who took the show to the next level.

Naturally it’s not only about the models, but also about the mood of the show. The music accompanying the show was the one of the most popular artists of the time. Some important musical guests had been invited as well, such as Maroon 5, Cee Lo Green, Nicki Minaj and Kanye West and this offered a spectacular touch to the show.
There were a lot of well-known models present at the show, including Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, and so on. The only big name of the fashion world missing on the runway was Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who said that she won’t be walking this year.
There were 5 main themes of the show. The models of the Ballet section had ribbons laced to their stilettos, while Super Angels had super heroes and bubble wings, Passion came with items inspired by the Spanish bullfighters, Angels Aquatic took the viewers under the sea with a dark theme, and Club Pink had disco balls.
Adriana Lima confessed that she had a liquid diet for 9 days before the fashion show in order to look her best. It looks like she really succeeded, because people were amazed of how well everything suited her (and her measures), no matter what kind of lingerie she wore.
At the beginning, she looked like a superhero with matching bra and knickers and also a cape that was floating behind her. Then she presented the bullfighter inspired black and red lingerie with stockings and lace bolero, adding passion to the items.
In the end, she became a superhero with wings, presenting a simple set of stockings and bodysuit.
The show was ended by Alessandra Ambrosio and a shower of falling balloons on the stage.
