Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is one of the most fabulous and expensive fashion extravaganzas held every year. It is a world renowned fashion lingerie show sponsored by Victoria’s Secret, a luxury lingerie and sleepwear brand.
This annual event began in 1995 and has since been held year after year at New York. This year’s show happened during the first week of November and featured some of the world’s top super models aptly called Victoria’s Secret Angels.
The Secret Angels
The Victoria’s Secret Angels who displayed the latest collection at the event were – Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel, Erin Heatherton, Lily Aldridge, and Lindsay Ellingson. The show was a huge riot of colors with crystal embellished costumes being flaunted by the cat walking models to the lilting tunes of famous artists.
The event had supermodels dressed as angels with wings, crowns and all. Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio was bestowed with the honor of displaying the fantasy bra, worth $2.5 million this year. This is one bejeweled piece of lingerie that forms the highlight of the show. It is designed every year with help from some of the best known jeweler’s of the world. Precious stones are embedded in this creation and put up on auction or sale after the show. One other highlight of this year’s show was that famous artists such as Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber performed on stage for the audience, walking down the aisle with the models.
Themes and Displays
This year’s show took inspiration from subjects as varied as blooms, circus and dangerous liaisons and set them up as themes. A total of 65 different looks were displayed by gorgeous models, all of them dresses in the most exotic elements that one could only dream of. The Angels showed off their chiseled figures in the flashy ensembles created by the best designers of lingerie, basques and bodysuits.
Among the angels, Miranda Kerr wore a forest green creation that seemed like a takeoff from a magician’s outfit. One of the outfits that she wore was aspired with huge white-feathered wings that made her look so angel like. Doutzen Kroes looked resplendent in a pink sheer underwear set teamed with cute pompoms to cover her frame.
While sporting another piece, she danced with Rihanna as she performed on the stage. Another model who stole the show was new mom Adriana Lima. She was dressed as a forest fairy with red and green affixes stapled to her back. In another outfit she pulled off a ring master inspired body suit complete with the train and all, with panache.
