After months of hype, Instagram posts, teasers and speculation, the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was walked overnight in Paris in all its winged, glittered glory. Set in the decadent surroundings of the Grand Palais, opulently placed between the Seine and the Champs Elysee, the American brand became the radical spectacle in a venue more accustomed to Chanel shows taking place four times a year. And not one eye was left disappointed.
51 of the worlds top model took to the glistening catwalk touting $3 Million dollar bras, oversized angel wings and sky high heels whilst serenaded by Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and The Weekend. Words seem not enough to sufficiently describe the showing of lingerie in a show divided into six sections starting with Road Ahead, Mountain Romance, Pink Nation, Secret Angel, Dark Angel and concluding with Bright Night Angel.
The star of the night came through the dazzling, decadent $3 Million dollar Fantasy bra donned by Jasmine Tookes and crafted by Eddie Borgo using 9000 precious stones, taking an impressive 700 hours to create and weighing over 450 carats. Perhaps strategically coloured lingerie accompanied the bra as the look left many onlookers green with envy.
