Some consider Thanksgiving the start to the Holiday Season, while others wait for December 1st. For me, it’s when CBS airs their annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. No lie. It’s one of my favorite things in the entire world. Mark my words, one day I will attend it front row, hanging out with the supermodels respective boyfriends ;) While not as potent as last year’s telecast, the lingerie fashion show still managed to be the highest rated program of the night in the coveted demo. Congrats ladies.

For me, this wasn’t one of the best outings by Victoria’s Secret. I thought there was TOO much focus on the music acts. Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars all performed two sons apiece. IMHO, the show shines the best when it’s all about the ladies sashaying down the runway to a wicked mash-up. It’s their one time a year to shine. We can watch RiRi and the Biebs on the X Factor, Grammys, AMAs, VMAs and the list go on.

That said, there were a few highlights. The “Circus” theme was brilliant (thanks to the awesome mashup) as was the “Silver Screen Angels“. The giant-sized pinball props for the “Pink Is Us” was also worth noting. Even though a few ensembles from the “Calendar Girls” segment made my Top 15 list, it was the worst theme. When the outfits went wrong, they went horribly wrong. Check out my Top 15 favorites from last night’s show.

2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 15 Best Outfits

Alessandra Ambrosio

Segment: Angels in Bloom

Alessandra was the lucky girl this year to wear the VS Fantasy Bra, worth approximately 2.5 million. The standout here though is the floral wings. Absolutely divine. I could’ve done without the leafy hip embellishments.

Candice Swanepoel

Segment: Angels in Bloom

The powers-that-be are definitely trying to take credit for Candice’s success. The South African beauty had an entire package entirely about her. Once again, the floral wings are to die for.

Sui He

Segment: Silver Screen Angels

The picture here doesn’t do this outfit justice. The way the dress sparkled was breathtaking. Hands down my favorite outfit of the night. You can actually wear it to a party, and not just a Halloween one either.

Hilary Rhoda

Segment: Calendar Girls

Sure it’s a little cheesy, but the clover wings are magically delicious ;)

Barbara Fialho

Segment: Calendar Girls

Out of this segment, this was the best. Is it wrong that I want that oversized beach hat? Totes adorable bathing suit too.

Izabel Goulart

Segment: Circus

That bedazzled snake is EVERYTHING. This outfit reminds me of Britney Spears’ outfit from her MTV performance of “I’m A Slave 4 U”.

Liu Wen

Segment: Circus

I wonder how long it took to remove all those “tattoos” off her body. Probably too much time and that’s why this was Liu’s only appearance of the night. Fun fact: Wen was the first model of Chinese descent to walk the VS fashion show a few years ago.

Frida Gustavsson

Segment: Calendar Girls

I think this was supposed to represent Cinco de Mayo, but not 100% certain. The weaving on the corset and sleeves is exquisite.

Erin Heatherton

Segment: Calendar Girls

Not the best outfit, but wanted to include it for a couple of reasons. First, the angel wings are adorable. Secondly, poor Erin didn’t handle her wardrobe malfunction all that great. Her hat wouldn’t stay on and when forced out on the runway without it, she was clearly rattled. It’ll be interesting to see if she’s asked back next year.

Jourdan Dunn

Segment: Pink Is Us

She’s a sexy Buzz Lightyear, don’t you think? Fierce to the umpteenth degree. Bonus points for doing the robot at the end of the catwalk.

Sharam Diniz

Segment: Pink Is Us

Keeping with the Toy Story theme, Sharam is one sexy Woody. Loved how the rope was fashioned into wings. Brill idea. Side note: I love how when Sharam walked out, it was timed perfectly to Nicki Minaj’s interlude to Justin Beiber’s “Beauty and a Beat”. LOL.

Candice Swanepoel

Segment: Circus

The heels, the parasol, the barely there bedazzled bra and panties… It all works.

Behati Prinsloo

Segment: Angels in Bloom

The petals fluttering in the wind as Behati walked down the runway were a sight to behold.

Joan Smalls

Segment: Silver Screen Angels

The world’s current No. 1 supermodel, according to Models.com. Of course I had to put Smalls here. I adore the print on her draped fabric.

Bregje Heinen

Segment: Dangerous Liasons

Who doesn’t love a slutty french aristocrat ensemble?

2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Worst Outfit

Izabel Goulart

What really kills this outfit for me are the bottom pom-poms. It looks ridiculous. They could’ve just filled out the top part more, if they had extra poms.

The One Outfit Not Televised

Karlie Kloss

If you were watching the “Calendar Girls” segment and noticed November was missing, here it is. On the heels of No Doubt’s racially-offensive “Looking Hot” music video, Victoria’s Secret was also called out for their sexy Native American outfit. Personally, I think everyone is too sensitive. The outfit is hot and not meant to offend. If she showed up something Asian-inspired, I wouldn’t at all be offended. It’s fashion people, not politics.

Did you watch last night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show? What was your favorite outfit? Who’s your favorite model? Do you think there were too many performances? Sound off below.
