Victoria’s Secret Angels London Lingerie Show
Kim Kardashian may have broken the Internet, but Taylor Swift in lingerie might break Instagram. The “Shake It Off” singer performed at the Victoria’s Secret show in London on Tuesday night, and inspired many a hashtag by wearing two lacy ensembles on the runway.
She also set the Internet ablaze when she strolled hand in hand with BFF and Victoria’s Secret Angel Karlie Kloss during the finale — a repeat of last year’s showstopper.
Fans on Twitter immediately dubbed Kloss and Swift, by that time in a tiny black lace teddy, “Kaylor.”
This year’s VS show featured a perfect mix of new touches, like Ariana Grande and the inclusion of two multimillion-dollar Fantasy Bras, and the old, like Candice Swanepoel’s flawless abs and a cute boy singing onstage. This year, the lucky lad was Ed Sheeran.
The show is mostly a pixie-wing-adorned spectacle fueled by hours in the gym, but there’s an actual fashion element as well, including an array of themed segments.
With a moody masquerade theme, the Angel Ball segment featured Constance Jablonski and Martha Hunt in looks that went far beyond lingerie, including a sheer shirt and fringed black dress.
The Gilded Angels segment included gold wings that looked like they were on fire, worn by Lily Donaldson, Swanepoel and Doutzen Kroes. Kloss’ wings were made of 18-carat gold — the ultimate stocking stuffer (albeit not for sale).
The Fairy Tale segment took inspiration from Disney, with Jourdan Dunn wearing sparkly pink wings and Izabel Goulart in enormous crystal-covered butterfly wings. Behati Prinsloo shut it down with a voluminous feather train and thigh-high snakeskin sandals.
For the obligatory jolt of fun, this year’s theme was “University of Pink.” Elsa Hosk walked the runway wearing a sports bra with the word “Pink,” and fur-trimmed cotton wings. The look was like fantasy anime. Bregje Heinen wore a jacket with sherbet-colored cotton balls attached.
Two of the most famous Angels, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima, debuted the two Fantasy Bras this year during an Exotic Traveler segment. Draped in diamonds and with blue and red superhero capes flowing behind them, they walked the runway in bras each worth $2 million. Lima’s contains more than 6,000 carats of gems (including 943 diamonds) and took 1,300 hours to create. Ambrosio’s red version is hand-set in 18-carat gold.
The show airs Tuesday, Dec. 9, on CBS at 10 p.m.
