Victoria’s Secret Show Heats Up The Airwaves

December 2, 2009

Last night the steamiest event of the holiday season took place on CBS, The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

The event, which has been broadcast yearly since 1999, was held in New York City and featured a few performances by the Black Eyed Peas.  Now, the show is one of my favorite events of the year, I love the glitter and the girliness of the event.  And then there’s the music.  Every year the show features mashups from popular artists, my favorite year was in 2005, which was also Tyra Banks’ last show.

This year’s event tapped into the reality show craze. In pre-filmed segments, Angel Boot Camp, one lucky girl from across America got the chance to be an Angel for the night. The mini reality show (which would have been an great series) tapped into the America’s Next Top Model craze, and sifted down over 1000 girls to two who let America decide the winner. Now here’s the thing– the show was taped in November, so the winner was either pre chosen, or both girls got a chance to live her dream and walk down the glitter cat walk in her skeevies.

As for the rest of the show, it was pretty standard, we got to see the models dancing backstage, getting their hair done, and hear the director’s voice. The Black Eyed Peas were surprisingly really good (especially for Meet Me Halfway, which is a song I love). And Heidi Klum looked really fab for just having a baby (even though her stomach was covered). Speaking of stomachs, Marisa Miller with her killer abs wore the 2009 Fantasy Bra worth three million dollars U.S. They have these bras every year and actually offer them for sale in their holiday catalogue. However, apparently no one has ever bought one. No kidding, for three million, I see why.
