Just a pair of Wings

This is the fashion show most waited for men and the least for women. Men dream to be lucky enough to just be near one of the Victoria's Secret Angels, women instead, dream to have that kind of body.
But you know what? Those kind of bodies are just for few, those bodies are unrealistic because the majority of women are not like that. I mean, there are a lot of women with amazing bodies (lucky them!) but the most of us have slow metabolism, sweat in the gym with scarse results and are perennially on diet. 

The girls of Victoria's Secret sacrifice everything physically and mentally for that body for just 30 minutes of show and it's rumored that the models can't eat or drink anything for 24 hours before their walk. This is insane!

Last years I enjoyed a lot the shows because it was different: models were not just emotionless mannequin but they were allowed to express themselves with smiles, facial expressions and movements. But and there's a big BUT.. This year the models were way too thin and the atmosphere was not that great.

The show this year was set in Paris and during the walk Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and The Weeknd performed their newest hits.

Lady Gaga wore a black lace dress by Alaia on the pink carpet, during her performance she chose to wear a black ensamble made of top and leggins by Saint Laurent; later she changed into a floral gown by Yolan Cris.


 Alessandra Ambrosio's walk was amazing as always. At the after party she wore a sparkling and black dress by Alessandra Rich.


Another "veteran" Angel was Adriana Lima who walked during the performance of The Weeknd. Later at the party she chose a very neat and elegant white dress with gold buttons and belt.

 Irina Shayk just before the show, revealed that she is pregnant with her first child with the actor Bradley Cooper, in fact we can see her tiny baby bump covered with a red beaded garment.


During the after party she decided to wear a black and white stripy dress by Givenchy.


Jasmine Tookes rocked this year's custom made Fantasy Bra with diamonds and emeralds.

 Kendall Jenner walked for the show for her second year in row and at the party she wore a pearl white silk dress by Camilla and Marc.


 Georgia Fowler, the australian model, walked for the first time for Victoria's Secret and she was amazing in her silver and emerald garments.

Lily Aldridge returned to be an Angel after her pregancy and she was perfectly in shape.. maybe too much!

 Sara Sampaio chose a silver and sparkling mini dress by Zuhair Murad.

 Joan Smalls walked again for this show and at the party she chose a white, see-through maxi dress by Adam Selman.


 Bella Hadid walked for Victoria's Secret for the first time and she had an awkward encounter with her recent ex boyfriend The Weeknd, even if she stated that he is still her best friend and there was no awkwardness. Bella was accompanied by her older sister Gigi, who walked for the second year in a row.

For the after party at Le Grand Palais the Hadid sisters wore a silver Julien MacDonald dress and a gold Versace dress. So gorgeous.
Even if I don't like Gigi's walk, I kinda like her but this time she went a little bit too far and lost too muh weight. In fact the difference between last year and this year is very visible!


I liked this show, a lot.. but this year there's something wrong with quite everything. I feel like it kinda lost its magic. To me, the Victoria's Secret show was the only one were models were the protagonist instead of the lingerie and not the other way around. This year I almost thought that the well-known wings were heavier that the models themselves! 
The fashion world is finally opening to all the shapes of women and I think that also this company should change and show all kinds of a woman's shapes!

What do you think about the show? How about the models?
Do you think that Victoria's Secret should stick with this or be more open-minded? Tell me what you think!

That's all for now

Talk to you soon!
