You should know by now that our fashion holiday season is not complete without a set of wings. This season we’re blessed with 31 sets of wings – the most ever to hit the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show. With fab themes like Ballet, Super Angels, Passion Play, Angels Aquatic, I Put a Spell on You, and Club Pink the wings were paired with fine jewelry by London Jewelers and shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti Design. Over 2 million Swarovski crystals were used. Sources says that this production cost nearly $12million. WOWSERS!
I’m sure a portion of that tag goes to fill the pockets of hip hop’s great Kanye West, who brought out surprise guest Jay Z to perform “N***s in Paris”. I hear that Beyoncé was also there, baby bump and all, rocking a gorge white dress. Kanye also performed “Stronger” for the fun and flirty comic book themed runway Super Angels. Maroon 5 was up next (with front man, Adam Levine aka my-boyfriend-in-my-mind) and performed “Move Like Jagger” while VS veteran Miranda Kerr strutted the $2.5 million Fantasy Treasure Bra with clam-shell wings. It was disappointing to hear that Adam chased his real VS girlfriend, Anne Vyalitsyna, down the runway to give her kiss. Nicki Minaj closed the show with her infectious hit “Super Bass” during the Club Pink runway. Cute right! Models were super accessorized with pom-poms, sparkles, and even electronic wings.
November 29th cannot come quick even. I will be tuned into CBS for the premiere of the 2011 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Check out the pics.
