The 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show brought the Angels on the catwalk. The show that can easily be considered the sexiest time of the year, as well as the most glamorous evening on television, was aired on Tuesday, December 4th on CBS.
The show was a mixture of fantasy meets fashion meets sexy, as gorgeous models showcased the latest Victoria’s Secret glittery underwear collection. The runway witnessed famous models wearing incredibly expensive underwear embellished with glitter and diamonds, angel wings and six inch tall heels.
The ultimate fashion show brought together performers like Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber and Rihanna, as well as famous models, including Cameron Russell, Miranda Kerr and Alessandra Ambriosio. The themed sections took the audience back to the old Hollywood glam, the circus and Dangerous Liaisons.
The show was broadcast by CBS starting with 10 p.m. and streamed live on Victoria Secret’s website. The overdose of glitter and rhinestones kicked off with a “Circus” themed opening act led by model Adriana Lima. The lingerie items presented included polka dots and striped underwear and jeweled corsets.
Second in line came the “Dangerous Liaisons” themed act, which included a performance of her song “Diamonds” by Rihanna and a catwalk with lace lingerie and angel wings. The singer wore a black corseted gown, long black lace gloves, choker necklace, pearl sunglasses and thigh-high stockings.
The following theme was the “Calendar Girls” featuring a performance by Bruno Mars and a catwalk by 12 models representing the 12 months of the year. Victoria’s Secret decided to cut out “November” from the broadcast footage. Model Karlie Kloss wore a Native American head dress for the live show that was considered outrageous by Native American groups.
Justin Bieber performed two times during the fashion show. He first sang an acoustic version of “As Long As You Love Me”, during the intermission, then “Beauty and the Beat” for the “Pink Ball” theme that had the models dressed in candy colored lingerie and hooded sweatshirts from Victoria’s Secret PINK collection.
The most glamorous theme of the night was the “Silver Screen Angels” one, which had the models walking down the runway wearing lingerie with beading and feathers while Bruno Mars was performing his “Young Girls”.
The last segment of the show was a performance by Rihanna, who sang “Fresh Off the Runway” while wearing an outfit consisting of a lace robe, bra, high-waisted briefs, booties and hooded sweatshirt tied around her waist all in light pink. The models came out dressed in leafy lingerie and floral wings resembling sexy fairies.
