After much anticipation and a ma-hoosive build up, we finally got to see the Victoria’s Secret fashion show – and it wasn’t a disappointment.
Our girl Taylor Swift was the headlining performer of the evening. Rocking three outfit changes in total (phew, this makes us exhausted just to think about it), we saw all sides of the American songstress – with a flirty baby pink number complete with fluffy trim that showed her girly side, and a dark, lace set to show her more sultry side. It complimented the trends seen during the show, and quite frankly Ms Swift looked darn right incredible.
Although the Shake It Off star gave the models a run for their money, displaying her enviable slender pins and tiny waist, the catwalk show still stole the show – as it should, of course. Jourdan Dunn had to walk solo with the absence of BFF and fellow D Cara, who was off casually owning the runway at Chanel, as you do. But she had the likes of Karlie Kloss, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima all strutting their stuff along with her.
And what show-stopping stuff it was.
There seemed to be a running theme of good and bad angel, with bondage style suspender belts and corsets, mixed with heavy dark lace and feathers, contrasted by petals, silk and flowing chiffon. No angel theme would be complete without the addition of wings, and there were some tremendously pretty butterfly-esque shapes, strong God-like gold styles and of course some angular, dark wings and flowing black capes.
It was also fun to see some carnival brights and streetwear trends coming through.Oh, and some seriously stand-out thigh high boots that definitely deserve a mention…
The A-listers were out in full force, and the front row was jam packed with the likes of Millie Mackintosh, Tyson Beckford, Mollie King and Rochelle Humes. One person who certainly seemed to be loving his front row seat was Ed Shereen, who was honoured enough to be on the stage with the models – you lucky boy, Ed. He definitely looked rather pleased with himself.
Oh, what a night! Until next year…
