One of the most anticipated catwalks every year, Victoria Secret, took place in New York last night. Known for its extravagant displays of the most beautiful 'angels', delicate underwear and celebrity performers it is the hottest ticket in fashion shows. Unfortunately, those who did not have the honor of being there in the flesh will have to wait till December 4th for it to be aired on television.
Two of our own, Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn were chosen to walk the catwalk this year. Cara is probably one of my favourite models of all time. She is so young (only two years older than myself) and has achieved so much in her life already. Gracing the runways and adverts of brands such as Burberry, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and now the biggest lingerie company of all time. So, its the day after the catwalk, where Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars performed and the press are eager to share there pictures. My first point of call was Vogue and Fashionising.com as they have all the catwalk pictures and behind the scenes features. Personally, I think the behind the scenes/instragram pictures are just as exciting as the real catwalk pictures. Seeing the transformation of model to angel, how they interact with each other before the shows and of course the iconic silk pink robe - not one person could look bad in this robe! The most elegant, simple and girly thing you could ever own.
I don't think anyone in the world could ever begin to imagine how these models feel as they come out into a roaring crowd with the heaviest of wings on their back, a massive pop star singing to them and so many other things going on. The Victorias Secret catwalk is so fun and imaginative (this year was circus-themed), the models can completely be themselves whilst running around in the prettiest lingerie ever imaginable. I cannot wait for the 4th December to come, the pictures do not do this show justice!
