Since the date of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015-2016 was unveiled we have been visualizing with intensive heart palpitations what new fantastic bras will make their way down the catwalk and what other dazzling wings will be waving in the air. Finally the moment came and yesterday night saw just another typical-of-Victoria’s-Secret glittering and ritzy fashion show that will definitely be registered in the history of Victoria’s Secret as the most iridescent and Brazilian carnival-inspired episode. Featuring themes like Exotic Butterflies, Ice Angels, Pink USA and Fireworks, it was an extravagant show to behold, one that will continue mesmerizing us throughout the upcoming year.
Of course, we would be more than gratified to see the live broadcast of the show and to feel the whole glory and splendor of this star-studded event but, as it has already been announced earlier, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will be aired on CBS in 192 countries only a month later, on December 8 leaving us again with heart going pitter-patter. But fortunately the photographers of the show got the show down pat and as a result we can now partially bate our curiosity by checking out a series of gorgeous photos submerging the whole social media platform today.
The stunning and gorgeous models and Victoria’s Secret Angels were sharing the catwalk with Selena Gomez, the Weeknd and Ellie Goulding, who were energizing the models, dancing and flirting with them. Selena Gomez was filling the catwalk with somewhat aggressive sounds of the song “Me & My Girls” from her new album Revival. Decked into a provocative black satin high-low dress with super-plunging neckline, with her sensual, athletic body she could be easily taken for a Victoria’s Secret model; only massive wings were missing.
Ellie Goulding who had replaced Rihanna at the last moment was performing Fifty Shades of Grey song “Love Me Like You Do” donning an all-white high-low romantic dress. Pop diva RiRi reminded of herself by sending a bunch of balloons with a note attached to it: “Wish I was there with you guys. Kill it tonight. See you all next time. Love, Rihanna.” Mind you have promised, Rihanna! When the firework-themed segment rolled up it was the Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” performance that urged all to dance joyfully.
In between the rocking performances the catwalk was experiencing multiple transformations. A fairytale garden morphed into a Christmas yard with snowflakes dancing down, later on a realistic firework kicked off mimicking Brazilian Carnival.
Behati Prinsloo was the one to open the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015 show opened greeting everyone with bright orange fringes hovering down her sleeves while her roomy wings were infested with iridescent flowers and stars with the word Love written on them. She was followed by veteran Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio, who was donning emerald green lingerie and a large vibrant feathered piece attached on her back.
If for Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Lily Aldridge and Candice Swanepoel the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has become somewhat regular an event, the 20-year-old top models and BFF Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid were debuting in this sphere. Debuting it might be called only officially as they felt quite at ease on the catwalk ravishing all and sundry and literally rocking the runway as if they hadn’t been on nerves a few minutes before backstage. As a matter of fact, the mind-blowing appearance of the stunners should have been predicted with so much catwalking experience under their belt. In addition, the best friends were overjoyed to be together on this important day as well. Kendall uttered backstage: “It makes you more comfortable and honestly sharing this moment with one of your best friends is so awesome”.
Kendall strutted her stuff on the VS runway show for the first time in a rainbow basque and a long blue cape flaring behind her. She was coquetting quite confidently, stretching the cape to its entire width sending out multiple kisses and provocative winks. Her second appearance was no less impressive – an embellished bleached blue basque with long bell sleeves, puffed shoulders and a plunging neckline up to her belly to put the tonal bra on view.
Gigi Hadid looks so gorgeous and scene-stealing every time she appears with any yellow piece so effectively going with her blonde waves and angelic eyes. She did it again yesterday night breezing in a fireman outfit – red sports bra paired with yellow slouchy pants, the waist folded down to expose the red sports panties. While Selena Gomez was jazzing up Gigi on the catwalk she granted her with a kiss on the hand. Her second costume was more angelic and awe-aspiring. Her body was not only embellished with emerald green lingerie but also with several black butterflies while a massive tonal cape was billowing softly behind.
The stunners and fresh new faces of Victoria’s Secret runway show were really excited and on fire though the runway actually did not feel it, smoothly passing those emotions to the backstage. Kendall’s excitement and pressure had apparently reached its peak and she forbade her famous Kardashian siblings and her sister Kylie Jenner to be present at the show letting only her parents Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner support her on this paramount day of her life.
The amazing brunette Lily Aldridge, who has been a Victoria’s Secret Angel since 2010, was bestowed to present this year’s $2 million Fantasy Bra. She rendered the coveted bra during the Firework segment of the show dazzling everyone with American rose bra bejeweled with 6,500 precious gems and the matching knickers embellished with 126 diamonds and 400 other precious stones, while she was carrying myriads of colorful firework-like pieces on her back.
Another seasoned VS Angel, South African blonde model Candice Swanepoel dulcified the runway with her cheeky look and smile featuring a pale blue bikini and shaking her feathered birdie wings. Even more sensational was her next number in the Christmas-themed segment at the finale of the show when she sashayed down the catwalk in a sparkling illusion jumpsuit with a plunging neckline showing off her white bra. The wings were equally magical imitating snowflakes.
The bombshell Brazilian beauty, Adriana Lima was as always working her wonders belonging to this catwalk since 1999. After twittering her jewel-toned feathered wings she managed assembling myriads of butterflies on her back showcasing a romantic nude bra.
The crazy eclecticism of wings and decorations continued up to the end. When we see Joan Smalls’ image with feathered wings and her body decorated with artificial creeping snakes we think that here the creativity will come to its end, but then Sara Sampaio comes into view with multiple explosives hooked up to her back at any moment threating to explode.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015-2016 has reached its completion continuing with its extravaganza status and luxury denotation. Kendall Jenner can now head to indulge herself with her junk food and Lily Aldridge to all appearances has already hosted the promised pizza party. Bon Appétit, girls!
