The annual extravaganza brings celebrities and fashion lovers from all around the world together, for one night of absolute glits and glam.
The Victoria Secret show was recently held and singers Rihanna and Justin Bieber performed, whilst some of the worlds most famous models took to the catwalk for the annual Fashion Show at the Lexington Armory in New York.
The fashion show is now officially a pre-holiday season tradition for the fashion house. CBS has turned it into a 1-hour special to be shown on Dec 4th.
The show was separated into six sections: Circus (with contortionists, acrobats and sword eaters) ; Dangerous Liaisons; Pink Is Us; Silver Screen Angels; Angels in Bloom; and Calendar Girls. Bruno Mars serenaded each model for each month of the year in the calendar section.
As per usual ,the models sported props including: Doutzen Kroes‘ body cage, Adriana Lima‘s ringmaster wand and the huge ,decorative wings made especially for my eyes (**,).Miranda Kerr rocked a swan style feather-filled pouf and Lily Aldridge boasted star-spangled wings that shooting out silver sparkles.
And to top off the extravagance that has made Victoria Secret so infamous, Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio wore a jeweled bra worth $2.5 million. That’s like my tuition multiplied by 7. GOSH!
A change to the shows purpose was realized as it started with an announcer noting that Victoria Secret and the CBS had each made a donation to relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy. This was also a thank you to the National Guard members who are based at the Lexington Avenue Armory that has, for years, been home to the Victoria Secret Fashion Show.
The afterparty is always star-studded.Some of the power house names including Russell Simmons, Tyson Beckford as well as the angels. Pictured here is Candice Swanepoel and Behati Prinsloo in dramatic numbers,showing off the assets that brought them to their global success.
