Last Sunday night, The Victoria Secret Fashion aired on CBS. 50 models flew to Paris to take part in the night that is the super bowl to fashion. Victoria’s Secret promised that this year’s show would be bigger and better than ever. From the runway set in Paris, to a $3 million dollar fantasy bra, the biggest wings ever worn on the runway and the most expensive show, this luxury lingerie brand did not disappoint.
The show started off with Elsa Housk wearing thigh-high embroidered boots and a Chinese paper dragon wrapped around her half-naked body.
The Road Ahead section featured bright chiffon and silk kimonos, thigh-highs, and lots of feathers. This section of the show tried to highlights the colorfulness of other world cultures and hinted at cultural appropriation (something Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show does best).
The next section of the show included one of the guest performers Lady Gaga. Gaga sang one of her ballads and wore a tight, sheer, rose embroidered gown. The models walked across the glittered runway in lederhosen and floral and feather wings in Mountain Romance.
The next section brought out Bruno Mars for the Pink Nation section. This section of the runway showcased Victoria’s Secret popular PINK line. Ribbons, metallic and fur bomber jackets, sheer jackets, knee high socks strutted down the runway. And we can’t forget the PINK dogs.
Next, The Weekend made his appearance singing Starboy to the girls walking down in thigh-high vinyl boots, lace, chiffon and tulle wings. Bella Hadid walked in her first show this year just to catch eyes with her ex The Weekend as she walked down in grey lace and chiffon. The Secret Angel section showcased soft sexuality through lace and silk.
Lady Gaga came out to the stage in her million-dollar crystal hat and backup dancers. The models walked across the stage in black and white lace, and black wings for the Dark Angel section.
This part of the runway featured models like Taylor Hill in chiffon wings, Alessandra in a velvet bustier, Gigi in killer thigh-highs, Kendall Jenner in a Victorian-inspired lace lingerie, and Joan Smalls in the largest wings that extended 7 feet away from her body. At the end of the section Lady Gaga gained a pair of wings of her own that popped out from her leather jacket as she walked back from the runway in her platform heels.
To end the night, Bruno Mars came out in a fur coat, tux and sunglasses to sing 24 Carat Magic. Jasmine walked out in the 3 million dollar Bright Night Fantasy Bra. Other models were draped in sheer crystal body suits that had a figure skater vibe. Then the rest of the models came out and danced and walked around the runway for the final with spurts of confetti flying everywhere.
Victoria’s Secret has done it again with the biggest and most expensive fashion show. They have captivated girls and boys from around the world to showcase their lingerie designs, ideas of the most beautiful women in the world and dominate the world one angel at a time.
