Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show photos, outrageous costumes and plenty of T&A

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show happened in New York last night, and while we won’t see the broadcast until December 4th, there are of plenty of photos to tide us over. I never really got the point of the VS Fashion show, since your eyes are so attracted to the incredible costumes and hot supermodels that you’re barely paying attention to the average bras, panties and garter belts they’re supposed to be selling. Still, they’re getting us to watch that’s for sure. Last night we got to see well known Victoria’s Secret Angels like Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima along with a few new faces. I don’t know what to say about these photos except “hot,” “she looks skinny,” “crazy outfit,” and “woah,” but I’ll try to include some minor commentary.

First off are the performers – Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Bruno Mars. Rihanna donned two different outfits during the show, both of them revealing of course. She was also grabbing up on the models. You can see a photo of her doing that here.

Bieber looks like a q-tip to me. This outfit is ridiculous.

Bruno Mars with Lily Aldridge

When I first saw Adriana Lima (below) I thought “wow she looks great and not super skinny,” but it turns out she had a baby, her second, just eight weeks ago! So she’ll be super skinny again in a very short time. Not that she needs to be, she looks hot.

Speaking of super skinny, here’s Candice Swanepoel, who recently tweeted a photo of her non-existent stomach. She had on three different outfits.

The lovely Miranda Kerr was a green goddess, a pink sweetie with a bizarre piece of fabric across her stomach, and some kind of fluffy angel. I like the black and white lingerie but that pink sparkly set is cheap-looking.

Doutzen Kroes’ butt really stole the stage. Woah! She looks fabulous.

Love these crazy orchid wing things that Alessandra Ambrosio is sporting. She had her second baby just six months ago. Her duck face is bugging me here. She really poses hard. (Update: Alessandra is wearing the $2.5 million floral fantasy bra)

Here’s Leonardo Dicaprio’s very recent ex, Erin Heatherton. She looks like she’s doing fine, thank you very much.

Finally I’d like to end with a model named Liu Wen, who was sporting some very colorful tattoos. These were painted on, and they’re striking.

    doutzen doutzen and doutzen!
    girl is hot.

    • emmie_a says:

      Doutzen is total perfection. Incredibly beautiful face and absolutely perfect body. I love/hate her!!

    • Liv says:

      Doutzen is by far the most beautiful of them. And I also like her body, she’s not super skinny, but you can see that she works out.

    • Lipsy says:

      She’s perfection! That face and that body!

      I never paid much attention to Leo’s ex, but she’s really cute.

    • TQB says:

      That ass!! DAMN! She is HOT.

    • V4Real says:

      Yes Doutzen is hotter than hot but who is that androgynous singer dressed in white with the MC Hammer pants?

  2. watchingyoubitchh says:

    doutzen doutzen and doutzen!
    girl is amazing.i have a huge crush on her.

    • TheOriginalTiffany says:

      You gals stole the words off my keyboard. Doutzen is my girl crush. I would die for that body, if I had that ass for one day…

      That is like the Stanley Cup of asses, I would take it to bars and let people crack peanuts on it, I would take pictures of it on a roller coaster, take it on a parade float…

      Sorry, sports analogy.

    • ctkat1 says:

      Ha! I came to the comments just to say how much I like Doutzen- she’s my favorite by far.

  3. Amelia says:

    Okay, I’m not trying to rag on these girls and I’m all for a toned stomach (interval training and weights every day) but there’s something about Lily Aldridge’s stomach with Bruno Mars that I find very unappealing. Just a bit too … sinewy.
    Liu Wen’s tattoos are incredible, whoever painted those on is seriously talented.

  4. Abby says:

    ahh! I love the VS show, and I’m a girl. I want me some wings. For real. Miranda Kerr is my favorite, but I really like Erin too!

    • M says:

      Lily had a baby a few months ago and it looks like her skin hasn’t completely tightened up yet. She looks great to me!

    • Bubbling says:

      Jennifer Love H. is that you? “Outfits” are horrendous but even hater like me has to say that those bodies are pure insanity, amazing…

  5. L says:

    The assortment of fake boobs (miranda being the exception) was distracting. I miss Heidi and Tyra honestly.

    Apparently their generators helped get the armory up and running for the National Guardsmen helping in NYC.

  6. Tuxedo Cat says:

    I can’t stand those stupid pants with the dropped crotch that Justin Bieber is wearing….they are so annoying and I don’t even know why….

    I liked the dark green outfit the best…

  7. Christy says:

    Doutzen is just crazy hot IMO. I know she’s skinny, but she doesn’t have the “I ate nothing for days” look which I love. Obviously she’s doing squats for a booty like that!

  8. SusieQ2 says:

    I want Rhianna’s pink boots.

    That is all.

  9. Joanna says:

    some of those girls are too skinny. you can tell they’re naturally petite, but when you can see ribs and major muscle, it’s too much. liu, miranda and adrianna look good. the others, not. you can tell the others spend hours working out when it’s obviously not necessary. that pic of candice’s stomach (in the link) is disturbing.

    I wish vs would show a variety of body types in their show. not a big fan of theirs, anyway. why should i pay $50 to $75 for a bra made by someone in a third world country for probably $2 an hour? Anyone else remember the outrage years ago about the conditions of the workers overseas employed by vs? I will give them this–they have a hell of a good marketing teams when they can convince women to pay $50 for a bra made for less than $5 overseas.

    • Abby says:

      I will admit that VS bras/panties/pajamas last for a long time—they last longer for me than other brands. And they’re always soft and fit well. I just wait to get stuff on sale because I won’t pay $50 for a bra… except once, for a strapless bra there and it was the best underwear investment I’ve ever made. 🙂 Completely changed the way I wear strapless ANYTHING.

    • e.non says:

      $2/hr …. if only.

    • Dani says:

      Agree with Abby…their stuff is good quality. Guilty of buying $50 bras more than once but they’ve lasted for a good amount of time. Some longer than 3+ years.

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        Me too. I have a strapless version and the panty that Candice is wearing in pic 2 and it is comfy, sexy and fits great.

        And I used to buy Wacoal.

    • Zoid says:

      While I agree that some of them might be unrealistically thin (Karlie kloss!!) I think the whole ribs/stomach section is taking it a bit far. I’m the same height as these chicks, and my ribs show naturally too. (I’m thin but they are in really good physical shape) if I was as ripped as they were, my ribs would probably show even more. Not something we can control.

    • Otterette says:

      I thought the complete opposite. I’m seeing some meat on legs for the first time, rather than 3 inch gaps between thighs,

  10. marie says:

    well, probably not the post I should be looking at while shoveling cookies down my throat..

    They all look great, but Rhianna’s glasses are ridiculous.

  11. Merman says:

    Doutzen Kroes’ body is insane.

  12. Riana says:

    DAMN, I gotta admit…my hands would have been reaching for Doutzen’s ass like a kid trying to steal a cookie off the kitchen counter if I’d been Rihanna.

    Also, wings, its all about the wings, they know it and we know it. The girls could walk naked so long as the wings are AH-MAZING.

  13. Emily says:

    Okay, normally I hate body-snarking, but some of these girls just aren’t healthy!

  14. virginia5 says:

    Not to be rude, but I can’t really see the difference between all the blonde models…

    imo I don’t get the hype of vs

    • virginia5 says:

      I also find it annoying that the comments on dailymail(there are 13 articles about this vs show) are always about someone saying that people are jealous, or that they are fatasses, because someone may not find these girls attractive. Everybody has different tastes. Are we supposed to think every model or celebrity is attractive?

      • Christina says:

        It’s been very obvious for a while that the DM is being paid to promote VS. None of these models is well known in the UK, and there’s only one VS shop there, which only opened recently. But barely a day passes without an ‘article’ full of gushing prose about how this or that VS model looks just so fab (insert number of months) after having a baby. Bo-ring.

        And yes, all the ‘jealous’ comments are silly (I’m also convinced the DM has its own people add favourable comments on VS threads). There are women I look at and think I’d dearly love to look like them. But the VS models, with the exception of Doutzen (though IMHO she’s overrated too) are just so bland and vanilla. Completely interchangable.

  15. Tifygodess24 says:

    This was a good reminder to go to the gym this morning! Thanks CB!! Lol

  16. Eve says:

    I wonder if Leonardo DiCaprio has already watched this.

    He must receive an advanced copy of the show (edited ESPECIALLY for him), right? Makes sense to me.

    • Amelia says:

      Eve!! You’re back! How’s the studying been?
      I’m afraid that Cumby has been somewhat commandeered, as of late…

      • Eve says:

        Oh, I aced the test. I said that on a post about Cumberbatch a while ago…but I guess nobody saw it because I posted my replies a way too late (the thread was already “dead”, I guess).

        I also feel better, I even decided not to go to the doctor (lie, I woke up late and missed the appointment with him). I think it’s too late anyway, some of the symptoms have gone away (except this annoying “throat-clearing” cough — I may have to check that eventually).

        About Cumberbatch belonging to anyone else (besides me)…bitches wish.

    • marie says:

      girl, he’s got a detachable catwalk that he carries in his luggage for such occasions. the models call it practice but DiCaprio calls it “Leonardo’s Next Top Date”

      and congrats Eve! glad you’re feeling better.

    • Bird says:

      My first though after seeing this post was about Leo and if he watched the show to choose his next victim. I wonder why he hasn’t made a play for Candice Swanepoel yet? She seems like a cross between Gisele, Erin and Bar. Who the hell am I kidding- they’re all interchangeable.

  17. LucyOriginal says:

    They all look great. Looking at these photos reminded that I haven’t gone to the gym in the past 3 days. Back to my studies…

    ps: I think the model Rihanna grabbed is Isabeli Fontana who is married to Rohan Marley. But I am not sure.

  18. Rhea says:

    Must be a busy night for Dicaprio last night. 😀

  19. emmie_a says:

    Alessandra is pretty but she has such a harsh manly look to her — like Giselle.

  20. Joanna says:

    hate rhianna’s pink outfit. looks like grandma’s robe. also why wear a white coverup wrapped around your waist? find a better matching coverup if you’re too scared to show it all off.

  21. Jess says:

    Doutzen and Adriana are so much hotter than the others. I like Miranda’s body as far as the skinny girls go though. It is softer and not as obviously food deprived.

    • ptitesirna says:

      Ugh, PREACH! I came just to comment how, with her new curves, Adriana is the sexiest one BY FAR.

  22. BX says:

    I love the pearl glasses!

  23. effy says:

    Really these costumes and photos are pretty to look at, and the models are pretty hot, but who wears such in real life for real?

    Some i would wear, but most of them are just for the runway, i guess.

  24. Rita says:

    All these ladies with their wonderful smiles and bright eyes are just exquisite. I’m fairly conservative but they make it all look so much fun instead of raunchy. Although they are all magnificient I must vote Miranda Kerr for both:

    Best of Breed and Best in Show.

  25. GiGi says:

    I think Miranda Kerr’s tummy is probably sporting some loose skin – thank God, lol!

    Both she and Kate Hudson always wear something over their stomachs now (not in personal life maybe, but when they’re working). It makes me happy to think just maybe their bellies are a little wrinkly, too!

  26. ladybert62 says:

    21st century version of playboy bunnies.

  27. Andrea says:

    Wow that Liu Wen girl is GORGEOUS!!!

  28. Christina says:

    Am I the only one who finds the whole VS thing a tad creepy?

    Grown women called ‘angels’ prancing around with fake, vacant-eyed smiles and ridiculous wings? Who, despite being almost naked, have all the sex appeal of a slice of white bread? And whose bodies are painfully thin, even by the standard of models?

    All in all, a very infantalised version of female sexuality, all with the aim of selling cheap underwear. Nasty.

    • P.S. says:

      You’re not alone. I think it’s just a glorified Vegas strip show. Very vulgar.

      • Christina says:

        At least Vegas is just a bit of good old-fashioned sleaze, aimed at men who want an eyefull of female flesh. These shows, however, seem to celebrate a sanitised, infantile version of female sexuality – these women, with their pasted-on smiles, plastic boobs and almost child-like bodies – are completely unlike real women. Sure, models are always idealised versions of the real thing, but these ones are hard to tell apart from shop mannequins.

    • SLM says:

      Yes, what Christina says. And it airs at 7:00 PM here on television, which doesn’t make any sense. It’s not appropriate for children, sends a terrible message for girls, and if they are going to air the nonsense at all, it should be later in the evening. I don’t know what the hell it has to do with “the holidays” yet they trot it out as a holiday special. Ick.

      • DeltaJuliet says:

        They want you to do your holiday shopping there. THAT is what it has to do with the holidays :/

    • Zoid says:

      Can we please not call their bodies ‘child like’? Some women really do look like this naturally, myself included, and I find it very very offensive. I like that some of these models don’t have d-cup boobs. It’s nice people with a/b cups are sexy too.

      • Christina says:

        Yes, some women are naturally very thin. But NOBODY naturally has boobs like melon halves strapped to their chests. This isn’t about being naturally thin. This is about creating a caricature of womanhood that is, imho, quite revolting.

        And it’s not only that. The whole ethos of the show is infantalising. The outfits that look like a little girl’s fancy dress costume. The complete lack of body hair and even an ounce of body fat. The fluffy pink tassels. The inane blowing of kisses. The reference to grown women as ‘angels’.

        I kind of feel sorry for anyone who finds this sexy. They clearly have a distorted idea of womanhood.

      • Zoid says:

        Well Christina that’s your opinion and you’re welcome to it. I personally find plenty of these women sexy (DK’s butt is insane!) and you can keep the pity to yourself.

      • Daniela says:

        Christina, then you have to feel pity for almost every man on the planet. There’s a reason this women are among the most desired on the planet.

        And please don’t tell me “My husband/BF thinks they are ugly”. He’s lying so you don’t get upset.

    • Daniela says:

      So having a slim, toned body (which is actually the healthier you can be) is being “painfully thin” now? Jealous women are hilarious.

  29. Val says:

    I generally really like the VS show – it’s fun and I love the themes and outfits they come up with each year… but damn, since they started adding “high fashion” models to the crop (I’m looking at you, Karlie Kloss) the standard seems to have dropped from curvy to catwalk-thin. I miss the Tyra days.

  30. Eleonor says:

    Why Justin Bieber is wearing a diaper???

  31. j.eyre says:

    I opted not to go running today due to a light drizzle and an invitation to snuggle with my husband. Although I felt good about the decision at the time, I am looking at these bodies with my regret mounting. Sigh…

    Gorgeous post – nice to have some lady eye candy on occasion.

  32. fabgrrl says:

    I love Miranda Kerr. She is just so…cute! Sexy-cute. Always smiling and looking like she is having fun.

    • Lady D says:

      Like Miranda because she is mommy to my favorite celeb baby, Flynn Kerr-Bloom.
      She also looks like she’s a lot of fun to be around.

  33. Francesca says:

    Halloween Fairies on Acid; is this shit supposed to be sexy? it isn’t. blech…

  34. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    I think Liu Wen is the prettiest of the bunch, with Doutzen a close second. The rest, meh.

    • normades says:

      Agreed. Wen is stunning. Doutzen’s not bad either, but I don’t prefer blondes. Also, I’d take Adriana’s slightly hippy “post baby” body to rib showing Candince’s any day.

  35. anotherrandom says:

    I like how Candice Swanepoel’s boobs look a different size in each picture. Shows the power of padding and those bras. Doutzen is the hottest, I’ll agree.

  36. Sachi says:

    Doutzen is the prettiest and their best model. Miranda 2nd. I hope Isabeli Fontana is at the show, I haven’t seen her photos. She’s still so sexy and beautiful!

    Most of the others (including Adriana and Alessandra) look so try-hard nowadays. Adriana and Alessandra didn’t use to be like this when they weren’t the main Angels.

    VS fashion shows, IMO, have gone waaaaayyyy down since Gisele and Tyra left. Gisele and Tyra both added sexiness but also a little bit of “class” to the runway. They were fierce without even trying. The fashion shows back then were a bit like cabaret: sexy but not over-the-top.

    VS fashion shows 2003-2005 were the best with 2005 being my favourite, although Tyra retired from VS that year.

    Now the shows are just very garish and loud with each model coming out of the runway behaving like they’re at a frat party with their flailing arms and their “Woohoo! Cheer for me! Come on!!!” gestures while pointing at the audiences and exaggerating their poses.

    • Carolyn says:

      Yes. Couldn’t have said it better. 2005/6 were the last good shows. Aly, Adriana & Lily all looked much better with more weight on them.

      VS Shows are turning into a farce.

  37. lena80 says:

    I had no idea VS had hired an Asian model. I’m happy to see this diversity!

  38. skuddles says:

    Uh Biebs… you do realize these women have more impressive pipes than you right?

  39. ShugAveryPee says:

    Doutzen I love but the obsession over her butt i do not get… She has a small together butt… That is not rare … I guess cause I live in L.A … The blonde hair blued eyed girls are over rated … But i do love her.. and she is beautiful.. but the obsession over her on this thread is a bit over the top

  40. TheOneAndOnly says:

    Sachi do yourself a favor go on youtube and watch the VS shows from 1995 – 2000 WOw have they changed. Liu wen is beautiful and I still like Alessandra; but more to the point is the Biebster a badass or what wearing an outfit that is a cross between the Michelin Man and Gumby. I like Bruno Mars but his cred just went down for appearing in this; Of course Rihanna would be there a talentless fameho. Its all so corporate and ridic – do these people know that.

  41. crazycatlady says:

    I wonder how many male celebs fight their way into this show then sit there with their tongues hanging out, checking off the names in their program of which pieces of VS meat are currently single…

    That said, I always enjoy watching because it’s an entertaining show. They outdo themselves with the costumes each year, and sometimes the musical guests are good. I love Bruno so I can’t wait to see him.
