Many were concerned post-Hurricane Sandy as to whether or not the Victoria’s Fashion Show would film as planned, but thankfully, Victoria’s Secret managed to pull it off.
For those of you wondering if it was appropriate to even have a show given the current circumstances in New York, rest assured. Victoria’s Secret was sure to put on the show they had promised but did not forget those who needed assistance. The generators used to produce power for the show simultaneously provided power for the 69th Regiment Armory where the show took place.
Victoria’s Secret also loaned out their forklift (used during set building) to the National Guard to aid in food distribution. The most heartwarming donation? A $1,000,000 promised donation towards hurricane relief, generously given by CBS and Limited Brands, Victoria’s Secret’s parent company.
Now down to the details. The show, which always follows certain themes, was split into six different parts: Circus, Dangerous Liaisons, Calendar Girls, Pink is Us, Silver Screen Angels and Angels in Bloom.
Following tradition, each Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show always features a number of live performances, obviously for additional entertainment value. This year’s performers were Justin Bieber (yes), Rihanna and Bruno Mars. The AntiGravity Circus provided dancers and somersaulters during the first segment of the show.
The show of course was made complete by Victoria’s Secret’s infamous angels, but there was also a familiar face on the runway: Karlie Kloss. That girl seems to be everywhere doesn’t she?
Catch the televised Victoria’s Secret Fashion show on December 4th on CBS.
