The 2008 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show!
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show aired this Wednesday, and as always, it gave us motivation to go to the gym, and showed us how to spice up our lingerie with random items like flowered lattice! Perhaps this is why the craft queen, Martha Stewart was in the audience.
This year one of the most prominent trends on the glittering runway was greek goddess meets Xena Warrior Princess. Adriana Lima sported arm cuffs, Karolina Kurkova wore a leather half-corset, and most of the models’ legs were laced up with ribbons. This style was a departure from the typical cute and glitzy looks seen in previous years.
Of course if the Victoria Secret models were to be any sort of actual Greek warrior, it would most likely be Athena. Cue the long and flowing sheer drapery — Miranda Kerr’s gold leaf necklace, and Alessandra Ambrosio’s gold wings. Still, no Victoria Secret Fashion Show would be complete without Heidi Klum strutting around with a giant, twinkling, pink bow attached to her back! But our favorite part of the show? Watching Marisa Miller cure her pre-show nerves with a chocolate glazed doughnut! We loved watching silly backstage moments like these amidst the runway footage. It showed us that maybe we’re not so different from angels afterall!
