The “2010 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” aired last night on CBS and it was better than ever. It was more glamorous, had more wings, and more segments than years prior. Thank God, the producers decided to nix that awful “Search for the Next VS Model” piece from last year. Talk about useless filler. They expected you to believe your votes actually counted, but the show didn’t even air live. Silly, silly, silly. Do they think VS customers are that dense?
At first I wasn’t too crazy about Katy Perry and Akon as musical guests, but their songs fit the respective segment themes perfectly. And how cute was it when Perry joined the models jumping up and down at the finale. I would’ve loved it though if Akon’s “Sexy Bitch” had opened the show. Let’s face it, all those women up there are sexy bitches. Speaking of sexy, it was a little odd that their wasn’t a segment saluting Heidi Klum’s years as a VS Angel. A few months ago, the saucy German announced her retirement from the lingerie brand. When Tyra Banks quit a few years ago, not only was their a full-on tribute piece to her, but she also go to close out the show in that ridiculous outfit and sceptre. Given Heidi’s many years of service, she deserved a better sendoff.
Speaking of former featured Victoria’s Secret Angels, it was nice to see Selita Ebanks, Karolina Kurkova (who looks amazing considering she just had a baby) and Isabel Goulart on the runway strutting it out. I wonder how it feels to be part of the show and watch your younger replacements receive all the attention. Though I love Ebanks and Kurkova, I’m beyond the moon that Chanel Iman made it as a featured model this year. I’ve followed her career for years now and predicted she would be one to watch. In the end, I guess it’s still an honor to be included even though you’re no longer front and center. These years’ featured models were Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Chanel Iman, Candice Swanpoel, Erin Heatherton, Lily Aldridge, Lindsay Ellingson, Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Behati Prinsloo.
Here’s the list of songs used for the five segments:
“Stay Too Long” (Pendulum Remix) by Plan B
“Firework” by Katy Perry
COUNTRY GIRLS SEGMENT
“What You Are” by Jewel
GAME ON SEGMENT
“Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga
“Mama Said Knock You Out” by LL Cool J
“Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor
HEAVENLY BODIES SEGMENT
“Angel” by Akon
WILD THINGS SEGMENT
“Vox Populi” by 30 Seconds to Mars
“Teenage Dream”, “Hot N Cold”, “California Gurls” by Katy Perry
“Call Me Uprising” by Blondie vs Muse mashup
There was honestly too many to choose from. I’ve probably left some of my favorites out, but here are ten that I remember. My favorite segment was the “Bad Romance” mashup segment. Not only were the outfits fierce and the music tight, but it also featured a slew of sexy shirtless gymnasts. Yummers. They can mount my pommel horse anytime 😉
