Candice Swanepoel Gets Cheeky

Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel is featured in Free People’s latest July catalog and to promote this month’s styling they featured a behind-the-scenes slash  get-to-know type of a video for Candice. In it, we learn a couple of facts: 1. that she doesn’t have a driver’s license and 2. that she grew up on a dairy farm. Candice has always been one of my favorite angels and we’re loving this video that the brand has created. They’ve done such a great job lately with all of their videos and we couldn’t be more impressed with them.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Heads to London

The angels were excited this morning as they made the announcement that next year’s annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show would be heading to London!

They broke the news during a press conference inside Victoria’s Secret’s Bond Street store in London Tuesday. “We’re pretty excited to be here today because we have this great announcement to make,” Lima said. “The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is the biggest fashion event in the world, for sure, and we’re very proud and honored to announce that we are headed to London this year. Yes!”

“I’d like to invite Prince Harry, if he would like to come,” Lima told reporters. The 32-year-old Brazilian beauty promised he’d get the VIP treatment, of course. “He definitely has a front row seat!” she said.

Previous shows have been held in Los Angeles, New York City, Cannes, and Miami. I remember seeing looks on the runway featuring the Union Jack in previous shows, but I’m so curious as to what the themes will be this year. And as for performers? We hope it will be better than Fall Out Boy and Taylor Swift. My vote is for Sam Smith and Jessie Ware.

Song of the Day

Banks – Waiting Game

Yes, the song from last night’s Victoria’s Secret commercial. I’ve become obsessed with Banks within the last couple of days though. Her cover of What You Need is still one of the greatest thing I have ever heard.

Adam Levine Is Off The Market

I’m not going to say that we didn’t ever see this coming, but we definitely didn’t see this coming so  soon! Adam Levine is reported engaged to Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo. The Voice judge  and model split up this past spring, but have since decided to reconcile apparently. Levine revealed  exclusively to PEOPLE magazine today that the couple are making their way to the alter. He proprosed  to Behati this past weekend in Los Angeles. Congratulations to the couple! Behati is one lucky lady and  will probably have many songs written about her from here on out.

Miranda Kerr and Victoria’s Secret Part Ways

After multiple rumors swirled around last week that Victoria’s Secret had snatched Miranda Kerr’s wings from being an angel, the model has finally come clean about the breakup. Sources say that Kerr was “not a big seller for VS” (definitely not true!) while another source cited that she had a “difficult reputation.” Obviously, there was no truth to these rumors. Miranda is bowing out of her role as an angel because she’s a new mother and like many new moms, time off is kind of expected. Her priorities have changed and who can knock her down for that for wanting to be there for her 2-year old son Flynn with husband Orlando Bloom?

Miranda will surely be missed, but at least my favorite Lily Aldridge is still in!

Stop Glamourizing the Native American Look

Recently No Doubt was forced to pull their latest music video for their single, “Looking Hot” because lead singer Stefani was wearing a Native American wear throughout the duration for it. It’s not like this was small news or anything. Everyone seemed to weigh in on it – bloggers, journalist, twitter users, and the Native American community. So I’m a little confused as to why the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show decided to go through with a look that Karlie Kloss wore involving a Native American headdress.

Were the designers and producers living under a rock? As soon as No Doubt’s controversial video was pulled, I would’ve thought that the show organizers would decide to pull the look as well. But, they didn’t. The look appeared down the runway and once again, everyone had an opinion on it and now Karlie Kloss will not appear in the television special wearing it this December.

People really ought to be paying more attention in this industry. #poortaste

Victoria’s Secret Angels Kiss and Tell

I am really glad that Victoria’s Secret has decided to bring their angels to the forefront in these cute videos that they keep making. Up until this year, I believed that every Victoria’s Secret model was an “angel.” It never occurred to me that the angels were the actual spokeswomen for the brand though. I have found that models have a very difficult time connecting with their audience because if you think about, when do you ever hear them speak while they are working? On the runway, they are simply modeling, but they follow this standard and unlike say – an actress or an athlete or musician, you never get a sense of their personality. These videos allow them to do just that.

Lily’s just my  favorite!

Happy New Year from the Victoria’s Secret Angels

Oh Adriana

I’m kind of loving their holiday videos. It’s a cute way for people to get to know the Angels better whereas in the past, I really had no clue at all unless I took my questions to Wikipedia.

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Recap

(All photos by Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images)

I may not be a regular at Victoria’s Secret, but I am a huge fan of the annual fashion show that airs on CBS every winter. I’ve always had an interest in runway shows, but what sets this one apart from all the others is that the models actually LOOK like they are having fun. Seriously, don’t you agree? They’re smiling, they’re dancing…there’s 300 pounds of glitter on the runway. Just picture that for a second. You would die if 300 pounds of glitter were on top of you. And that’s scary, but that’s what makes the show so successful. Well, that and all the models and the lingerie you know…

Highlights:

  • Performers: Kanye West, Jay-Z, Maroon 5 and Nicki Minaj
  • Favorite theme: Aquatic Angels
  • How cute was Orlando Bloom rising almost every time wife Miranda Kerr hit the stage?
  • To keep you on the edge of your seat, the organizers of the show went all intense on us and gave us a play-by-play of what was going on backstage. Will Adriana make it in time?! Of course she does.
  • Karlie Kloss is the ultimate HBIC. This may be her first time walking for the show, but she’s no stranger to the runway – having snagged all of the major runway shows every single season.
  • Lily Aldridge is the best ever.
  • Not enough Chanel Iman.
  • Anne V. and Adam Levine…merrrrr

And now a tribute to my favorite Angels!
