The runway show to watch out for has done it again, but there was no doubt there, as much hype it builds every year, Victoria’s Secret Show is always there to deliver. And this year, the show was bigger and better in many ways. To break it down in numbers, there were more models, 47 to be exact and there were 79 looks that were featured on the runway under six different categories (Gilded Angels, Exotic Traveler, Dream Girl, Fairy Tale, University of Pink and Angel Ball).
Unlike previous years, there were 2 fantasy bras instead of one. *heavy breathing* As for the performers, we already mentioned Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran and Hozier were going to hit the stage and there’s no surprise that they did an amazing job. The whole thing was definitely a night to remember.
The show was brought to London for the first time and featured a dress code for thehundreds of attendees, a black-tie, black and white dress code which only made the show classier, with the holding area loosely based on Truman Capote’s Manhattan Black and White Ballfrom 1966.
If there is ever the need to prove yourself as the world’s greatest model, then it has to be to book the Victoria’s Secret Show, in reality it has to be a model’s dream to be selected. And instead of a classic runway, the Angels are encouraged to have fun, wink and interact with the audience which makes for a more entertaining show.
Even though the performers are more of a background spectacle since all eyes are on the models, Taylor Swift definitely managed to show everyone that she could be one of the angels too. She had two outfits for the show, theme and color coordinated with the models on the runway as she belted out her massive hit Blank Space and Style, both from her new album 1989.
As for the outfits, the 24 year old singer rocked a short pale pink nightgown which brought much attention to her cleavage, and paired it up with a gown-like robe that featured black lace and let’s not forget to mention her pink fluffy heels. For her second outfit she delivered once again, wearing an all-black two-piece which matched perfectly with the finale of the show. Petition to make Taylor Swift an Angel, anyone?
As for the highlight of the show, everyone focused on the leaders of the pack, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio who had the honor of showcasing the most important lingerie set of the night, of course, we’re talking about the fantasy bra set. It was only fitting that the two were chosen seeing how they are the brand’s most experienced Angels.
This year, the fantasy bra set was worth around $2 million each, while that might make you gasp, just think back how last year it was $10 million. Lima and Ambrosio donned the fantasy bra sets embellished with thousands of jewels, in blue and red, respectively. Both girls also had matching flowy capes as they strutted down the runway while Ed Sheeran sang in the background.
