CANDICE opening the show was a disgrace tbh. I mean it was expected but I gave her the benefit of the doubt. And wtf is she doing playing with her hair? I mean being a slow walker on the runway is one thing but playing with you're hair as if you're some kind of sensitive baby when opening the VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW is just is just >.<. Didn't she ever watch the previous shows? Didn't she see how girls like Gisele and Adriana demanded attention? Walked on the runway like they were going to war? But I guess they need someone else to open the show, Adriana can't be doing it every year. But her outfit is really nice and maybe it's not visible in the video but her outfit shows her little tushi lol
ANJA looks better in motion than in the pics. Her outfit is ok but girl need to eat more. I made really harsh comment on her appearance in the show but girl is naturally thin.
OMFG, LILY... you have no business being in the vsfh let a lone being an angel... Girl walks like a dude and is way too short for a model... She can't walk decently on the runway to save her life. No wonder she got only two outfits... she great in print but if I were her, I'd call in sick a day before the show, tbh!
ALESSANDRA, you can tell she's a pro... and I just love how the audience recognized her once she came out (you can here them screaming). As usual her walk is great and the outfit really suits her. I also love how she high fived Lily on the runway. That said,girl I know the segment is called ballet but wtf is up with all the ballerina moves? Maybe she was excited because Beyonce was at the show and she (Alessandra) herself said she's a Huge fan of B and it made her really nervous knowing that she was watching!
Umm, CHANEL, were you walking in slo-mo, I mean your outfit is terrible but it's your job as a model to make it look like the best. Plus was she drunk?! Because she was going in circles on the runway. I know this is Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and you're supposed to have fun and interact with the audience but I think she read too much into that. Girl needs to go back to high fashion ASAP. It's not even funny!
DOUTZEN really toned down her walk down in this segment but I guess there's only so much you can do when the music isn't that fast. She looks gorgeous and her outfit is amazing!
TONI, yes, that's how it's done! I've been drooling over her ever since I saw her pics from the show! She Knows how to catwalk and I love that she wasn't all playful! Her wings are amazing! For the most part, She did magnificent for a newcomer in the victoria's secret fashion show!
SUI HE, did great too! her outfit is simple yet classy imo. And she was also serious on the runway, which I like.
LAIS'S outfit is so dreamy! It's reminds me of a present/package that has a very pleasant something in it. I also like the heart shape she did at the end of the runway
BREGJE, I'm in love. I think she has on of the best outfits in the whole segment. And her walk is killing me! And I like that her outfit is showing her butt lol. Though you can tell she's still young (but an adult) I don't give a shit girl, rocked it!
MIRANDA, I think is the most adorable looking angel! I mean she's 28 but she can still pass for a 24 year old! She closed the segment and I think her walk isn't that good...definitely not bad though! Her outfit is really pretty. And I like the little cute wink she did at the end of the runway.
ABoUT THE FINALE VIDEO- Adriana, I know you're having fun and the finale is supposed be playful and fun but damn girl...

So ONTDers, This is a complete essay I just wrote lol. So what do you guys think after watching the videos?

Mods, I know this is a rather unusual thread but I think it's appropriate given that we have a tag for models and victoria's secret and we evidently have several members that her interested in this kinda thing. Plus I think this post promotes the ever rising popularity of models in the community, which I think is a good thing because it brings more diversity to the community. So I hope it gets accepted.

as usual, oblig comment about how Chanel should not be a VS angel
fil0li 20th-Nov-2011 05:46 pm (UTC)
*Chanel and Lily

Love this post. Flawless commentary OP.

Are they trying to groom Candace to be the head angel?

Also...can they stop with Lily? She's not going to happen.
georgie_georgie 20th-Nov-2011 04:19 pm (UTC)
Why has this show become such a big deal? ...mmm whatever to each their own.
georgie_georgie 20th-Nov-2011 04:22 pm (UTC)
It's not even a real fashion show. The models are not even wearing underwear, they are wearing costumes. It's all very theatrical.
dreamdate 20th-Nov-2011 04:25 pm (UTC)
They are wearing underwear it's just very hard to see. But that's the point why people love it. I watch for the wings and costumes.
drammh 20th-Nov-2011 04:33 pm (UTC)
I think see the average fashion show raking in 9 million viewers. I don't even see CBS airing it.
ppeak 20th-Nov-2011 06:21 pm (UTC)
VS and CBS make so much money off the show because it's such a big, fun way to sell the brand.

It's expensive to produce, but it airs in full in over 90 countries, and they can use the footage throughout the year and it's their start to the Holiday campaign.

If I have any of this right lol

I don't know any women who want to drop into Victoria's Secret. They are like , GORL this is my carbs day, we are sharing a Cinnabon.
raunchyb 20th-Nov-2011 06:07 pm (UTC)
I like their cotton bras, but I hate shopping there. I always feel like a haggard old troll when I leave. Their ads make me want to live in sweats and never leave the house.
dreamdate 20th-Nov-2011 04:24 pm (UTC)
I really wish people would stop hating on Candice opening the show. Her walk is so amazing and she was the most used angel in the last year. I do hope Alessandra opens next year. She deserves it.
drammh 20th-Nov-2011 04:27 pm (UTC)
What Alessandra needs is the fantasy bra. She's been with them for like ever and still nothing
dreamdate 20th-Nov-2011 04:29 pm (UTC)
Yeah giving it to Miranda was kind of O.o like..I get it..she had a baby and came back, wah wah, but compared to Ale, she hasn't been there that long.
strikeleo 20th-Nov-2011 04:58 pm (UTC)
I don't know, I like Candice and all but opening the show was a mistake, especially after watching this. She seriously lacked something, like, I don't know if maybe it's because I'm used to the top models opening, but she just didn't do anything for me. Only when Alessandra came up I believed this was a Victoria's Secret Fashion Show
dreamdate 20th-Nov-2011 06:39 pm (UTC)
to each their own, you know? but every girl has their own personality. candice is not adriana. she's not outspoken or anything. she has said many times that she's super shy. i think she did an amazing job and is one of the most beautiful woman i've seen in my life, so.
drammh 20th-Nov-2011 07:33 pm (UTC)
I think Adriana has the richest features at VS. She's so exotic and her eyes are to die for and those legs. She's definitely the most charismatic. She's just drop dead gorgeous. Candice, however is just unreal. Her body is something you can only see in your dreams. If you don't follow her career, you'd definitely think her body is photoshopped all the time. She's definitely the prettiest. I just wish she was taller
fruitariyum 20th-Nov-2011 05:11 pm (UTC)
ppl hate on candice?

STOP @ them tbqh!!!!!!!!!!!!
gata_power 20th-Nov-2011 04:36 pm (UTC)
holy shit it's all bones, implants and push up bras. VS models looked better in the 90s and early 00s.
gata_power 20th-Nov-2011 04:40 pm (UTC)
Also hated the opening, what is this little girl Candy land bullshit??? It's VS, it should be sexy and fierce, instead it's just creepy.
strikeleo 20th-Nov-2011 04:48 pm (UTC)
wow, Alessandra really stands out on the first one. I mean, Candice is pretty but boring to look at, and she just sort of lacks something - that attitude. I won't even comment on the brunette that came before Alessandra, I don't think she walked properly on those shoes.
drammh 20th-Nov-2011 04:57 pm (UTC)
The brunette is Lily. You don't even have to be familiar with models on the runway to know her walk on the runway is (always) bad.
lovely_tunes 20th-Nov-2011 05:19 pm (UTC)
i never knew that a camera man actually walked ONTO the runway with them...
ppeak 20th-Nov-2011 06:24 pm (UTC)

They tape the show twice and in the first taping, there's cameramen on the runway, and when they tape again, the cameras are switched and there's no more on the runway, just the girls.
silly_izzy_me 20th-Nov-2011 05:32 pm (UTC)
What a hot mess.
psychicherz 20th-Nov-2011 05:33 pm (UTC)
It's ridiculous, but even though I've always thought Chanel has such a bad personality, she's so cute that whenever I can see her, I practically genuflect in her presence. I mean, I can't stand her, but I can't actually remember that when I'm looking at her, lol.
fil0li 20th-Nov-2011 05:53 pm (UTC)
I appreciate the effort the OP put into this post :3

- Good lord Lily looks out of place. Flop Angel, lbr
- Candice is probably THE most beautiful Angel (even tho she's not my favorite) but yeah something's missing. Is this her first time opening? Maybe she was nervous, lol
- No Rosie :'(
- Random but I wish the goddess in my icon had walked this year, she was so so qt on the runway the year she participated in the VSFS
- Miranda will forever look young. It's the chubby cheeks
fil0li 20th-Nov-2011 06:02 pm (UTC)
Also, hmm, I think the VS hair people should've stuck to their usual voluminous hair/center part formula bc here you can see the side-parted hair flopping into some of the models' eyes. Which is fine normally but not when you have to strut your ass down the runway. I think that's why Candice was fiddling with her hair.

Also also, lol again @ Lily Aldridge. That might actually be the worst walk I've ever seen.
tres_francais 20th-Nov-2011 05:55 pm (UTC)


& Lily A. can kindly gtfo. What's up with that walk.
levenah 20th-Nov-2011 06:11 pm (UTC)
When does it air? I love watching it every year.

I think Miranda is adorable. I love her.

levenah 20th-Nov-2011 06:17 pm (UTC)
Awesome - thanks! :)
winonaforever 20th-Nov-2011 06:51 pm (UTC)
Ale owned the first video.
lebdiva 20th-Nov-2011 08:02 pm (UTC)
Candice is a gorgeous girl but her opening of the show was so boring and weak!
Alessandra has a good walk but lacks the charisma of Adriana and I've never thought she was that pretty. Don' get the hype.
Miranda is adorable and bubbly. Lily, well that bitch can gtfo.
Doutzen is amazing as usual. And as for Adriana, well that girl can do no wrong in my eyes. She's got a great walk, attitude, and is incredibly charismatic.
wingslapped 20th-Nov-2011 11:56 pm (UTC)
This video has me more excited about the show. It may not be as awesome as some past shows, but I'm a sucker for wings and I like more of the looks than I thought I would.
rein_kar_nation 21st-Nov-2011 08:22 am (UTC)
Bregje looks a bit like a bb Lily Donaldson
funkaliciousss 23rd-Nov-2011 05:43 am (UTC)
that's such an odd song choice for a ballet theme...
