If you thought their looks on the runway were good, wait until you see what they brought to the infamous pink carpet for the after party.

Full disclosure: I don’t actually shop for my intimates at Victoria’s Secret! I love watching the show every year though because of what a production it is and how over the years, the models are no longer just people on a runway, but you actually get to “know” the angels leading up to the big event. As time went on, Victoria’s Secret increased the number of angels and started giving us a glimpse into more of the behind-the-scenes so that we could begin relating to them. Now I know that some of the looks on the runway are really just for show and not going to be sold in stores, but that’s some of what makes this experience so fun, right? Here are my favorite looks:
It’s almost that time of the year! I’ve been watching the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show since it was first broadcast on television and while I am not a consumer of their brand specifically, I do enjoy the production of the show. It’s interesting to watch the evolution of it from when it started up until now. You’ll notice that things were more simpler then, but these days we’ve got very elaborate designs, props, performances, and the infamous “Fantasy Bra” – typically worth a ton of money and worn by one of Victoria Secret’s angels. This year, Lais Ribeiro will have that honor and this is the $2 million bra that she’ll be donning down the runway.
The 2017 Champagne Night Fantsy Bra features almost 6,000 precious gemstones, with everything from sapphires, blue topaz and diamonds, weighing more than 600 carats. Not only is the bra a work of art, but it took almost 350 hours to hand-make the piece.
Since the entire fashion show is such a huge televised production, the actual show is filmed almost a month early before it actually airs on CBS. There’s a whole lot to be excited about revolving the show including our favorite Lily Aldridge in the Fantasy Bra, performances by Ellie Goulding, Selena Gomez, and The Weeknd, and Kendall and Gigi’s debut on the VS runway. Here are our favorite looks below – NSFW probably.
The show contained six themed segments — “Boho Psychedelic,” “Exotic Butterflies,” “Portrait of an Angel,” “Pink USA,” “Ice Angel” and the finale, “Fireworks”
Happy almost New Years readers! We’re really looking forward to 2015 and what’s in store not only for me, but also for Yow Yow! We never go into the new year with a plan so it’s always a surprise for us. There’s a whole lot of love today in this post because well, everyone is getting engaged and love is just all we’re thinking about right now.
Ariana Grande of course. You know you’re doing something right when you’re performing a medley of your four hits at an event. Also I wasn’t able to include a video of Taylor Swift’s performance, but I loved seeing her perform “Style.” This was my first time ever hearing this song and it’s totally just a girl anthem that I can see myself belting out if I ever heard it on the radio. Also how qt was her moment with Karlie walking down the runway? Just date already.
And now, we bring to you a post of our favorite looks. Here’s our bright and shiny star Karlie Kloss! Just fair warning – we had a LOT of favorites.
The special may have been filmed today, but we still have a whole week until the show debuts on our televisions! Luckily, we’ve been granted with some snapshots so there’s no way that we couldn’t share it. I know some girls really hate the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show because blah blah watching it makes girls feel bad about themselves and people feel like they should eat a burger, but no. You do you. Let the angels be who they are! They may be naturally skinny (they can’t help that!) or they just want to work out that much – whatever the case, we’re in no place to make assumptions or pass judgements. You should not let people that have different bodies from you make you feel bad. That’s just crazy. So just enjoy the show when it comes on next week – it’s all for entertainment anyways.
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.
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
Not even Hurricane Sandy could stop the filming of the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. While we all get to see the spectacle Tuesday, December 4th – the actual show was filmed just two nights ago.
And here are my favorite looks!
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…
And now a tribute to my favorite Angels!

Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima debuted the fantasy bra that she will be wearing at the VS Fashion Show next month. The bra, designed by Damiani, is worth $2 million and is covered in 3,000 white diamonds and if that isn’t enough, they have also been “set in 18 karat white gold.”
I don’t know if I could ever wear something worth that much because I’d be too afraid of ruining it!
