Each year millions of viewers tune in to watch some of the sexiest women on earth strut down the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show’s runway donning their infamous sets of wings. Whether you’re watching in awe of beauties like Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio, or simultaneously watching and devouring a tub of ice-cream, happy at the fact that you’re able to eat it — the night proves to be pretty entertaining. I have to admit I watch for both reasons. Add in the fact that there usually are some killer performances, this show tends to have it all. Thankfully, this year’s installment didn’t disappoint and we’ve got some of our favorite moments after the jump.
1. The fashion. It is called the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show after all and this year what they were wearing — or weren’t — didn’t disappoint. Per usual, Victoria‘s angels rocked everything from super tight corsets to neon wings. An extremely entertaining part of the show was when the line’s PINK collection was showcased while Nicki Minaj performed her single “Super Bass.” With crazy designs, bright colors and even mini stuffed animals, Nicki’s own personal style looked right at home up their on the runway. Remind me again, which outfit is by PINK?
2. Love was in the air. I mean seriously, the amount of ridiculously good-looking couples in attendance was just insane. First, you had Maroon Five singer Adam Levine walk his very own super sexy angel down the runway hand-in-hand. As if that wasn’t cute enough, while she is being all fierce and striking poses, he ran up and planted a kiss on her cheek! For those not given the chance to be on stage with each other, looking at each other adoringly and full of pride worked too. Watching Beyoncé and her baby bump bumping along to hubby Jay-Z’s performance and Orlando Bloom smiling until his cheeks hurt at wifey Miranda Kerr–the love was all around.
3.That bra cost how much?! Per usual, one of the angels got the privilege of wearing a bra that costs more than a four year education in some places. This year’s “Fantasy Bra” was worn by new mother Miranda Kerr. Not only does the woman have a killer post-baby bod, but she gets to literally top it off with a bra racking in a total of $2.5 million. Miranda described it as being “… magical. Felt like a million dollars. Or $2.5 million!” [via US Weekly] Making this one of the few times that expression will ever be taken literally.
4. Girl power. At the risk of sounding too Spice Girls for you and whether you agree with the show’s premise or not, these girls are some pretty fierce women. They are called “supermodels” for a reason — and fittingly enough, rocked some killer super hero outfits during this years show. Strutting down the runway while Kanye performed “Stronger,” these women owned the stage and oozed confidence — and maybe a little sex appeal too, just a little.
5. It got the people going. The queens of the runway strutted their stuff, so it seemed appropriate that two of the kings of rap did the same. Straight off Jay-Z and Kanye’s Watch The Throne album, the “Ni**as in Paris” rappers brought the house to its feet and the fans’ “diamonds” to the air during their performance. The hip-hop anthem was performed sans-angels leaving just the two superstars to own the stage, which they did. The performance was complete thanks to shots of the audience rapping along, and the angels dancing back stage making good on the songs promise to get the people going.
What did you guys think of the show? What were your favorite parts? How did it measure up to past years?
