The fairy-tale that Victoria’s Secrets has built for 22 years with her end of year show, was held this year in Shanghai, China (a country which would not allow Gigi Hadid and Katy Perry to take part for “political reasons”). Sumptuous scenes, perfect direction, opulence, colours and music, make up for 55 super models (never quite as multiethnic as this year), including the thirteen Angels (the true stars of the show).
Six featured scenes: Punk Angel, Winter’s tale, Pink Millenial, Goddesses, Nomadic Adventure and Porcelain Angel. The colour alternated with white, then black, ethnic patterns completed the stage with neo-punk suggestions, classical and refined lines blended with a new sporty mood, due also to the new partnership with Olivier Rousteing, Balmain designer. Finally, the unbelievably unusual, incredible $ 2 million Fantasy Bra, worn this year by Lais Ribeiro and created by Maison Mouawad, using 6,000 gems, 18 carat gold, diamonds and sapphires.
