Never am I more excited about the VS brand then when this time of year rolls around. That’s right ladies, the VS fashion show is just a few weeks away- it airs December 1st at 10/9 central on CBS.
I must admit, last year’s fashion show was a huge disappointment. The music was awful (Usher, and some Latin band), and the show just wasn’t as fun and upbeat as usual (the models and lingerie were gorgeous though). I am really hoping they step it up this year, which I think is possible since the Black Eyed Peas are performing, and they tend to bring it.
In addition to the improved musical guest selection, VS has decided to spice up their runway show this year by hosting a model search for the next VS angel. They held castings in about 4 major cities, and also accepted video entries. I’ve been following the auditions on the Victoria’s Secret YouTube Channel. I thought a lot of the girls that auditioned were great. I’m not so sure about the “Top 10” (I saw some girls in the auditions that I felt were better VS material) but hey, I’m not a judge for the contest.
I’m having a hard time understanding why out of all of the gorgeous girls that entered, they would choose someone who has already appeared on, and won, a major reality show, and has posed in Sports Illustrated Magazine (the swimsuit issue, of course.)
I think she is a gorgeous girl, but I thought this competition was about finding NEW faces and new talent, not recycling from 2005 reality shows.
I do look forward to seeing who wins, and plan to follow the contest. You can vote for your favorite finalist here and watch their photo shoot videos here (the other girl’s videos are in the right side bar.)
What do you think of this contest to find the next VS angel? They did something similar either last year or the year before where the VS PINK team scoured college campuses to find a girl to walk in the VS fashion show. The picked a leggy blonde with medium length hair and a great smile. I always like it when they include a “regular person” in the fashion show.
Oh what I would do to just attend the actual show! I buy so much stuff from them, I feel like a complimentary ticket should magically find its way to my mailbox (Victoria’s Secret- if you’re listening, please email me for my address!)
Speaking of VS models, one of my faves, Marisa Miller recently appeared in a campagin thanking our veterans, sponsored by Harley Davidson. Check out the video here. I love the pin-up girl hair, outfits and makeup. It is a very different look for her, but she pulls it off flawlessly!
…and just because shes gorgeous, here are some pics of her:
