Between sizzling Victoria’s Secret models, skimpy lingerie, drama, Adam Levine and Taylor Swift, it seems pretty safe to say the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013 actually has it all.
Heck, in an interview during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2012, one model said: “It’s like no other show … in the whole world.”
Yes, the annual Victoria’s Secret show was already amazing before Taylor Swift — arguably the largest pop star our there — was added to the fray. And trust me: The mixture of Victoria’s Secret models — know as “Angels” — and sweet, little Taylor Swift is something you don’t wanna miss … both for the drama and the dazzle.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013 date was actually Nov. 13, but everyday viewers can catch the full event on Dec. 10. Tune into CBS at 10/9c to see the showcase of not just Victoria’s Secret lingerie, but also the famous Victoria’s Secret Angels.
From Taylor Swift to the Royal Fantasy Bra, here are a few things to watch for in the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Let’s just cut the the chase: Yeah, everyone loves Victoria’s Secret lingerie and Victoria’s Secret models. But at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013, Taylor Swift has stolen the spotlight, and the headlines.
Not only was Taylor Swift the headlining musical guest — with Fall Out Boy, A Great Big World and Neon Jungle also performing — for this year’s Victoria’s Secret show, but she straight rocked it. The day after the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013 was filmed, Josh Duboff at Vanity Fair noted that Taylor Swift didn’t just sport sassy clothes and get frisky with model Karlie Kloss, but she posed with the Victoria’s Secret Angles and “blended in seamlessly.”
In fact, there was an uproar after Victoria’s Secret model Jessica Hart was asked if Taylor swift could “pull it off” as a lingerie model. Hart’s basic reply: no. Jessica Hart, of course, apologized soon after and made some much kinder comments about Taylor Swift and her appearance in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013.
Another shining centerpiece of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013? The famous Royal Fantasy Bra, which was worn by Candice Swanepoel — arguably the luckiest of the many Victoria’s Secret Angels chosen for the show.
According to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013 website, the Fantasy Bra boasts “4,200 rubies, blue and yellow sapphires and diamonds handset in 18-karat gold” while “its crowning glory is the bra’s 52-carat pear-shaped ruby drop centerpiece.”
Oh yeah, and the Victoria’s Secret website also adds that “Just a cool $10 mil and it’s yours!”
Candice Swanepoel doesn’t just strut around in the Royal Fantasy Bra during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013, but is also the first of the Victoria’s Secret models to appear in the show. As Ann Oldenburg at USA Today warned, “Blink and you might miss the $10 million Fantasy Bra!”
Of course, the rest of the Victoria’s Secret models are still dazzling during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013 … even though they don’t have the bling of the Royal Fantasy Bra like Candice Swanepoel, or the out-of-this-world star power like Taylor Swift.
Just a few of the most famous Victoria’s Secret Angels that you’ll see when the show airs next week? Adriana Lima (13-year show veteran), Karlie Kloss, Lindsay Ellingson, Lily Aldridge, Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio. They all spot variations of new Victoria’s Secret lingerie, including one emoji-themed outfit.
The website for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013 also has close-ups with several Victoria’s Secret models. Lindsay Ellingson, for example, talks about her career in front of the camera. “Being a model means that so many doors have opened to me,” she says. “I’ve seen the world and learned so much, and that is priceless.”
One of the Victoria’s Secret models also brings along some additional star power. Behati Prinsloo is one of the Victoria’s Secret Angels, and she was recently engaged to Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice coach Adam Levine.
And Adam Levine is, of course, in the crowd supporting Behati Prinsloo during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013. Duboff at Vanity Fair noted that some live tweets suggest Adam Levine and his crew cheered loudly for Behati Prinsloo whenever she strutted out … but acted unimpressed by the other Victoria’s Secret models (and, I assume, Candice Swanepoel in the Royal Fantasy Bra.)
More drama in around Adam Levine at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013? His ex, Nina Agdal, is also one of the Victoria’s Secret Angels.
Of course, some fans may not be patient enough to wait any longer for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013 date.
For those guys, the Victoria’s Secret website also has lots of exclusive clips and content surrounding the upcoming Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Besides the Victoria’s Secret Angels close-ups we already mentioned, you can watch a three-part series on how the collection was created. You can also get all the details on casting, training, hair, makeup and more for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013.
Other features: Victoria’s Secret Angles also lip-sync the popular Taylor Swift song “Trouble,” along with the Justin Beiber song “Beauty and a Beat.” And nostalgic fans can relive countless moments from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2012.
But be sure to mark your calendar so you don’t forget the upcoming Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013 date. Catch all the action Dec. 10 on CBS.
