Last night was indeed one of the sexiest night on TV. That's right...it only happens once a year, Victoria Secret's 2012 Fashion Show!
As many events as there are in the fashion world, rarely any gets streamed on television! We're missing out so much. But I am SO glad we get to catch it on TV! The Victoria's Secret Angels are all about confidence and sexiness. It's the only time, where walking on the runway in lingerie can be considered an art show!
Props must be given to the designers and the planning committee behind the show, they've been working hard for an entire year to put together the 45 minutes that makes our sensational experience.
Here's a quick recap segment by segment, and I'll talk about my favorites :)

The show started with a circus theme Adriana leading the way as the ring master. I love the theme, it's so creative and different. Two of my favs outfits during this segment would definitely be Adriana's look as well as Izabel's look (who doesn't appreciate a gem snake?)
May I say that Rihanna is an amazing performer?
Though I love the theme of Dangerous Liasons, as the theme of seduction fits well, I wished for better outfits for this round.
I liked Constance's outfit because the colors were pretty nice. As for Shanina's outfit, I really liked the top!
All the looks for the Calendar girls are so cute! Especially Lindsay's and Barbara's. If I counted right, Lindsay's SHOULD be June, and June's the season for weddings! (awww....) but the heart-shaped wings, the veild, and the bouquet definitely made her look my fav!
I'm usually never a fan of the PINK part of the runway. But of all the looks, I adored Jourdan's buzzlightyer--she did a good robot! And Shu Pei looked absolutely adorbs in those sexy footie PJ's. But I thought the overall delivery was better than Dangerous Liasons.
This has got to be my favorite theme! The classic theme really allows the angels to show off their elegance. But more importantly, all the looks are very simple.
Angels in Bloom
*All RUNWAY Photos Were Taken from Zimbio unless otherwise stated*
I love the idea that each of the flowers represented their respective VS Fragrance. Also, the flowers symbolically represented the fact that the Angels were in BLOOM :)
And...last, but definitely not least: The star of the night, Alessandra and her $2.5 million Fantasy bra. After just becoming a mom, that girl managed to shed her baby weight and step back to the runway as the star of the show.
So here's some details to this 2.5 million bra: It's got Sapphires, Rubies, Diamonds, all made by London Jewlers and it's going to be on sale, too! There's a center piece with a 20 carat diamond, and another with a 12.5 carat...

The PR girl inside of me couldn't contain herself, Alessandra did a great job dodging that bullet of "is that bra uncomfortable" as she answered the question by saying it doesn't matter, who cares! Girl, you ain't just got good looks and perseverance!
Last year, after just given birth as well, Miranda Kerr also stepped onto the runway in her $2.5 Million Fantasy Bra with 3400 gem stones, including 142 carats of diamonds! (Shine bright like a diamond!)

Of course, what's a Victoria Secret Runway show without the bombshell Angels?
My all-time favorites would definitely have to be Miranda Kerr. Why? I don't know. Maybe because of her dimples. Or if it's cause together with Orlando Bloom, they make the power couple of power couples. Or perhaps she's a great humanitarian!
Who's your favorite Angel?
Over all, I thought the 2012 show was a success. It was widely publicized. Our USC VS campus reps certainly did a great job in terms of promotion. They hosted a viewing party, and the entire lobby of the building was filled with girls who got free swag. Plus, VS utilized the social media platforms effectively. For example, they added the "find your wings" feature onto their mobile app.
Lastly, all three performers were great, exceptional compared to last years. I can prove my unbias by saying the biebs (who I am not that big of a fan of) was way better than Maroon 5 (one of my favorite bands!)
Can't wait for the 2013 show!
