What many would call the one show-stopping fashion event of the Year, the annual assemblage of Victoria Secret Angels held this year was as always a spectacular show.
Held in Shanghai, China at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, the 2017 Victoria Secret Fashion Show opened to a large onscreen and offscreen audience across the globe with catwalk presentations from 55 Angels who walked to live performances from big music stars: Miguel, Harry Styles, Leslie Odom Junior and Jane Zhang.
Divided into segments, the biggest lingerie catwalk show had models walking the runway in pieces from the segments. There was a punk inspired segment which was done in collaboration with Balmain creative director, Olivier Rousteing; an African inspired themed segment that saw the models wear elaborate African head pieces, neckpieces and lingerie in African inspired prints; a goddess inspired theme with elaborate gold crowns and enchanting flowing fabrics.
The highlights of the evening were a $2 million Champagne Nights Fantasy bra showcased by model Lais Riberio, a 250, 000 Swarovski diamond encrusted lingerie set modeled by Elsa Hosk.
A defining accessory for the show was the different, unique wings worn by each model and the thigh length lace-up boots. Corsets, slips, camisoles, pants, bras and shorts were all designed to evoke an ultra feminine, sexy, confident and free feeling.
