Angels We Have Seen Above – Heralds of Victoria’s Secret at Holidays
There is nothing more heavenly than this: angels with feathered wings and sequin corsets floating in their ethereal beauty down the pink carpet runway at Lexington Armory.
Just a day ago, 30 of the world’s most perfectly formed dream goddesses gathered before the show in black leather jackets and boots and stopped traffic in Times Square, ahead of the broadcast of the VS 2009 fashion show.
Last night in New York on the set of Victoria’s Secret, streamed live on the web by Modelinia, these angelic beings – all budding super models, super models or mini mega models – made women blush and men blush as paraded. the gleaming V-shaped stage and showcased the new collection of lingerie, nightwear, and loungewear for lingerie leader VS.
Shrouded in mystery, the aspiring and aspiring angels and presenters were kept under wraps, with up-to-the-minute daily news coverage of the newly arrived Angels from Angel Boot Camp, who would walk, and whether 12 assistant Heidi Klum would be able to change. her post-pregnancy weight gain (from just 6 weeks ago when she gave birth to baby girl Lou Samuel) faster than a flutter of her angel wings to host the show.
And plum-decked Klum did not disappoint! ‘I’m definitely one of the 30 heaviest girls on the show. And I’m still 20 pounds. to go, ‘he said. ‘But why not? I like my outfit. I like the way he sees me. ‘ Stunning in her ghostly disguise, Klumangel was the center of attention, surrounded by decadence, glitz, glamor and fantasy.
This year’s themes were Star Trooper, All Aboard, Pink Planet, Enchanted Forest, and Romantic Journey. OTT and out of this world!
Hairstylist Charlotte Stockdale said of the inspiring show:
“We came up with the idea for this girl landing from outer space in Paris. He gets on a train that stops at Pinkland, where the pink girls hop on and off. Then they go into this fairy tale forest and little ladybugs and butterflies land on them and vines grow on their clothes. Then there is the Tick-Tock Time; the wings in this section are based on clocks; there is one inspired by a pocket watch with metallic pens. And it ends in this royal princess kingdom, where the wings have Swarovski jewels and peacock feathers.
And we haven’t even mentioned the rest of the ‘band of angels’!
Marisa Miller, the cover girl for the 2008 Sports Illustrated Swim issue, appeared in a $ 3 million fantasy diamond bra with more than 150 carats of a man’s second favorite from a girl’s best friend. She stole the show.
Other regular angels Selita Eubanks, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Doutzen Kroes (who was the face of Versace and Valentino) were joined by Briton Rosie Huntington Whitely, known for her delightful Agent Provocateur commercial.
Chanel Iman, throwing her purse into the audience at one point, and rookie Miranda Kerr walked as well. Miranda had just arrived, in boots made for walking, fresh out of Paris Fashion Week, where she made the almost impossible transition from underwear modeling to the Balenciaga runway.
Surprise attendee Anja Rubik, who claimed that her friends urged her to come forward, joked, “ I usually never do underwear shows, but this is so much fun, so laid back, so cool, and I heard the Black Eyed Peas were going to perform. ” It’s in New York and I live in New York, so I decided to do it! It’s crazy. ‘
Undone by Klum, eight months pregnant each, regular angels Karoline Korkova and Adriana Lima had to come down from their pedestals in the crowd of angels and be replaced by Emanuela de Paula, Lindsay Ellingson and Candice Swanepoel.
Fergie, an angel from the city of angels, sang with the Peas in an emerald corset dress suitable for Maleficent.
The FROW was also an elevated group with designers Zac Posen and Alexander Wang perched near super editor Carine Roitfeld and SATC costume designer of fame Patricia Field.
The broadcast is scheduled on CBS on December 1 at 10 PM EST, when this celestial band graces every television on earth.
