Victoria's Secret Angels Strike Again

Victoria's Secret Fashion show has become not only a fashion staple, but a pop culture phenomenon as well - the pre-taped telecast aired on December 5th, and like every year, it did not disappoint!

I watch it every year, for several reasons actually. I absolutely LOVE all of the fabulous couture outfits. I resent not being ultra tall with skinny legs, Adriana Lima is my absolute favorite angel, and of course, being the music junkie that I am; I look forward to the performances, and the music that is part of each “trends segment” planned for the telecast.

Let’s break down some remarkable moments from the show, shall we?

The show kicked off with the trends segment called Circus – during the segment, the gorgeous, stunning and statuesque Adriana Lima graced the runway as a ringmaster. I died! I say this every year that she is the most gorgeous angel, PERIOD! She did not appear on the runway as much as I would have liked (neither did Alessandra Ambrosio), so I will assume that they are getting ready to hang their wings, and let the young rising angels take over.

The music that graced the segment played as follows:
1.    The Doors - Welcome to the other side
2.    Missy Elliot – Get Your Freak On
3.    Billy Idol - Rebel Yell

Rihanna was the musical choice for the Dangerous Liasons segment, seduction and sexiness galore! All while Miss Riri performed Diamonds, wearing a high slit black ensemble, pearls and all.

For the next segment, titled Calendar Girls, Bruno Mars performed Locked Out Of Heaven. 12 angels dressed appropriately embellishing every month of the year. Candice Swanepoel dawned Valentine’s Day (February) while Lily Aldridge dressed as a 4th of July goddess (her husband is Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill.)There was one model that did not make it down the runway. Karlie Kloss who wore a magnificent Native American headpiece – the outfit was controversial, and while you can find photos online, the outfit was axed from the telecast. 

 Bieber Fever hit the stage next – Justin Bieber performed an acoustic version of As Long As You Love Me, followed by Beauty And The Beat for the PINK trends segment. Justin kept a wandering eye as the hot models strut down the runway.

Bruno Mars came back to the stage for the Silver Screen Angels segment and performed Young Girls. This was the most couture & intriguing segment – jewels, draped fabric and itty bitty outfits. 
For the last segment of the night titled Angels In Bloom, Rihanna came back on the stage to perform a brand new song called Phresh Out The Runway. This was the segment where Alessandra Ambrosio wore the 2.5 million dollar bra.
