Let’s take a moment and reflect on all the glitz and glam that was the 2011 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. It was, for lack of a better word, divine. The angels rocked it and so did the performers, whose roster included Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Maroon 5. We all have our favorite moments during these shows and for some reason one of mine had to be when Adam Levine took the stage and stole a kiss from Russian gal pal Anne Vyalitsyna. Needless to say, it set a good presence for the stage. My other favorite moments included the more intimate ones set backstage, when you got to have an inside look at the ‘angels’ browsing childhood photos and reminiscing of what they referred to as a completely different life from now. The ultimate sneak-peek was when we got to witness Miranda Kerr have her fitting for the mind-blowing $2.5 million diamond studded bra that she wore in the show’s finale. The leading lady and bombshell extraordinaire of the night was, without question, Adriana Lima who stunned in every ensemble during every segment of the show. Segments included:
I Put A Spell On You
I Put A Spell On You had to be my favorite as far as appeal and Passion was another one that I admired due to the perfect song choice (California King Bed by Rihanna) and overall vibe of the segment. I did love how in Angels Aquatic there was a lot of creativity with some of the models looking like mermaids and all of the intertwined seashells and starfish. Nicki took on the tail end of the show, singing her hit Super Bass during Club Pink, which was very suitable. Like they mentioned during the show, I don’t know how they keep coming up with such creative ideas for themes after so many have been used year after year; regardless, the amazing creative team and directors of the show do keep coming up with unique ideas and for that, VS fans everywhere are grateful.

What did you guys think of the show last night? I loved it! I actually think it was better than last year’s; that’s the thing about the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, they’re always making it bigger and better. Can you believe that they were considering doing away with having the girls wear wings? WHAT?! That would have been so disappointing and taken away a special element of the show. It was nice watching Chanel get her wings for the first time. There are so many models that it’s crazy to me when they all come out at the end for the finale that there is such a large number because it doesn’t seem like it throughout the show since you see a lot of the same girls coming out in different outfits.
There were celeb sightings in the audience, including the Hilton sisters, actress Malin Akerman from 27 Dresses, and Adam Levine, who was there to support model girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna. Katy Perry and Akon put on great performances; Akon’s song Angel was very suitable for the angelic segment of the show. It was beautiful! I also like how Katy opened and closed the show, with her closing medley of appropriate songs for the “Pink” segment of the show. It was cute, bubbly, and youthful, to say the least. Unfortunately, Katy got a lot of flack for her part in the show, with people making rude comments about how she looked “fat” in comparison to the models and that she needs to get herself into shape. HOW RIDICULOUS. She has a great body and not one body type is perfect or ideal. It’s sad that people need to always push their negative opinion for no reason like that.
It always seems like the show flies by! Just when you’re settling in, it’s practically over 😦 Either way, their ideas for segments this year were great, from the “Athletic” one accompanied by a remix of a Lady Gaga song, to the ultra girly “Pink” one to their “Angelic” one. I think the “Wild” segment trumped them all, being my favorite at least. I loved it and thought it was so vivacious and sexy and stylish. I posted on my Facebook page how the song choice of “Vox Populi” by 30 Seconds to Mars was perfect and I was so excited that they chose a song from a band that I happen to love! You can’t go wrong with good music and glamorous fashion. I can’t get over how much meticulous detail and long hours must go into something so aesthetically enhanced. Who was your favorite model? Alessandra Ambrosio? Adriana Lima? What was your favorite look? I loved the first one below that I posted, with Alessandra wearing the “wild” wings.
