That Time of Year Again...

It's that time of year again when the Victoria's Secret show has just been and gone, only for the public to pick it apart and comment on every single aspect of the theatrical fashion show of the year.

This year the stage was full of life and colour, from sweet pastels on a barn yard themed runway to spikes and deep alerting tones in a hard rock and love inspired segment. The Pink section, always one of the most anticipated didn't fail to please this year, despite the absence of it's original face Miranda Kerr. Behati Prinsloo opened the brightly coloured section with a show stopping rainbow out fit where the wings were literally shaped as a bow. The crystallized dog in the back ground, on which the show stopping Katy Perry performed, mixed with the array of metallic balloons gave the segment a Jeff Koons kind of aesthetic, and expressed the mood of the girly lingerie perfectly.

If one thing was missing this year (apart from the heavily pregnant Miranda Kerr) I'd have to say it was a Christmas themed part. I miss when they closed the show with that, like in the 05, 06 and 07 show, it was always so breathtaking and fitted the holiday mood so perfectly. Yet despite leaving out the Christmas cheer for the third year in a row the show, as per usual, was amazing. It truly is a theatrical phenomenon.
