A PEEK INSIDE THE VICTORIA’S SECRET 2013 FASHION SHOW

 

I know we still have to wait for weeks to watch the Victoria’s Secret Show and for sure, you guys are abusing Google and fashion forums looking for some runway photos and backstage insider. Fashion TV uploaded a video on YouTube showing the snippets of the show and it just increases the level of excitement that we feel.

Through my meticulous search, I’ve compiled a list of what has transpired on the show as well as the PROS and CONS.

PROS:

Seeing diversity on the show is a total 5 stars. The casting team made a very good decision to highlight the reality that being gorgeous is not only in defined in one color. Being in Victoria’s Secret may help newcomers Cindy Bruna and Malaika Firth in their careers. Who knows if the two of them can be future VS angels? (cross fingers on that). Of all the models, I’ve been really proud to see my Asian sisters – Sui He and Ming Xi become part of the cast. Sui He looked spectacular in backstage and in Snow Angels segment, and Ming Xi’s bubbly presence behind her high fashion aura is a fresh take on her that we even insist to see more.

Also, the best segment goes to the Snow Angels. This is a reminiscence of the old Victoria’s Secret show and Behati, Candice and Maryna has never looked this fly. The heavenly outfits are adorned with lace, capes, wings and Swarovski crystals. Let us not forget Taylor Swift who really looked beautiful and measured up to the models on stage.

CONS:

It’s kind of upsetting that Andreea Diaconu did not make it on the show. In my opinion, she is a true VS material and is totally destined to be an official angel. Also, Jac Jagaciak, Ming Xi and Malaika Firth deserve to be in other segments and it’s disappointing that the show did not allow them to flaunt their gorgeous bodies.

The show seems to have a lot of performers lately and we really miss the good old days (2005 up to 2008) where they use remixes as runway music. It could have been good to see Icona Pop performed at the PINK Network segment since their songs are really young and energetic. Most of the songs this year are not really appropriate to walk with on the runway.
