One of my favorite television events of the year is only hours away. Tonight on CBS, those leggy genetically-gifted women strut their stuff on the glittered runway of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. I’ll be watching every moment intently.

To promote the extravaganza, the VS Angels lip synced to Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off,” during the fashion show rehearsals in London. This is the second time one of Swift’s singles has gotten the Angel treatment. Last year, they danced to “I Knew You Were Trouble.” In 2012, it was Justin Bieber’s “Beauty and the Beat” and Katy Perry’s “Firework” the year before that.

Watch Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel, Doutzen Kroes, Lily Aldridge and Swift’s BFF Karlie Kloss goof around in the clip below. The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs on CBS at 10pm December 9, 2014.

Victoria’s Secret 2014 Fantasy Bras Unveiled

No typo in the title folks. Those stunt queens over at Victoria’s Secret are doubling down with the 2014 Fantasy Bra. For the first time, there will be two Angels strutting down the glittered runway with million dollar plus brassieres.

Brazilian supermodels Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio get the honor of showing off the centerpieces at this year’s annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Both ladies have received the honor previously with Lima chosen in 2008 and 2010, while Ambrosio snagged the spot in 2012.

“This year it’s really exciting because it’s the first time that we’re going to have two Fantasy Bras on the fashion show,” Adriana recently said on GMA. “I’m honored to be here with Alessandra, doing the show, walking the runway together. I cannot wait.”

This year’s creations are valued at $2 million apiece and designed by Mouawad. Check out the previous designs below and be sure to tune in to CBS on December 9 for the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show which are being held in London for the first time. It’s one of my favorite annual television events of the year.

2014-victorias-secret-fashion-show

The most glamorous fashion show of the year aired last night on CBS. The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is one of my favorite events of the year. There’s something about watching barely-clothed glamazon women strutting their stuff on the glittered runway that I find truly fascinating. I’m not alone.

Typically I have people over, but due to a prior commitment, I couldn’t host a gathering. The yearly telecast consistently does well in the ratings with the 2011 edition reaching heavenly heights. No wonder the reported budget for this year’s show ballooned to $12 million. Definitely a hefty hike from the first show back in 1995 which cost $120,000 to produce. Was the money worth it?

This. Made. My. Day. You probably remember Bon Qui Qui as the hilariously rude and sassy MADtv character that worked at King Burger. Not too long ago, she also released a music video called “I’m A Cut You” which was a riot as well.

Now, Bon Qui Qui is back in a brand new promotional video for Alexander Wang‘s Spring 2013 T. Bon Qui Qui, played by Anjelah Johnson, is working her first day at the Alexander Wang NYC flagship store and as you can probably guess, it doesn’t go to well. Cameos are by Alessandra Ambrosio, A$AP Rocky, Shannan Click, Simon Doonan & Natasha Lyonne.

One of my favorite parts is when someone says they need something in a larger size and Bon Qui Qui responds, “Oh..you need it like a starving kid need some food…or like a homeless man need a house? You neeeed it?” LOL. Watch the funny video below.

“It’s not fair to have a model singing,” says model Doutzen Kroes. True, but it’s friggin’ hilarious. Especially when said models don’t know the lyrics to this classic tune. Kroes apparently likes to deck the halls with jolly and honey. Pretty much everything except holly. When she finally gets it right, her expression is adorable.

The Dutch model isn’t the only Victoria’s Secret Angel to have a mishap during taping. From falling fake snow, candles probably not lighting up to other bloopers (not including some really tone deaf moments), this video is too cute for words. I have to say I’m a little biased since the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is one of my favorite things in the world.

While, I definitely love seeing shirtless men, there’s just something about these Amazonian women strutting down a glittered runway with their lingerie that just appeals to. Call me crazy. Check out the clip below with features Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, Erin Heatherton, Lily Aldridge and Candice Swanepoel.

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.

Victoria’s Secret 2012 Fantasy Bra Unveiled

In: Donovan, Fashion, TV Shows

When CBS airs its annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on December 4, Alessandra Ambrosio will be sparkling brighter than all the rest of her VS Angel compatriots. The Brazilian supermodel is this year’s chosen one to wear the company’s Fantasy Bra. Believe it or not, it’s the first time the 31-year-old stunner earns this honor. I can’t believe that tacky Marisa Miller even wore the Fantasy Bra before her. Talk about supermodel injustice ;)

Designed by London Jewelers, this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra is worth approximately $2.5 million and part of the Floral Fantasy Gift Set. The push-up bra is bedazzled with amethysts, sapphires, tsavorite, rubies, and white, pink and yellow diamonds, set in 18-karat rose and yellow gold. The set also includes two removable diamond flower pins and a 12.5-carat diamond, 20-carat diamond centerpiece and a sparkly belt.

Personally, I’m not a fan of this year’s design. It looks like an ugly bedazzled vegetable garden on Ambrosio’s cleavage. Check out how this year’s showpiece stacks up to previous Fantasy Bras below.

Model Behavior: Rob Evans

In: Donovan, Fashion, Totally GAY!

For those who were worried that I wouldn’t do a Model Behavior post this week due to Round 1 of our 2011 Model Behavior Showdown starting today, they need not worry. I would never deprive you guys of your weekly male model fix. I’m not that cruel ;)

As I was looking through my previous features and compiling them for Round 1, I noticed I was seriously lacking in diversity. I didn’t realized I was on a bit of a rut. My choices ranged from blond jocks to Brazilian hotties with a sprinkling of muscly beefcake thrown in for good measure. Moving forward, I’ll try to be more conscious to include sexpots from all colors of the rainbow. On that note, say hello to Rob Evans.

This 6’3″ British bloke is truly a knockout. Prior to becoming a male model, he boxed for a living. Now he’s making his mark in the fashion industry and people are taking notice. In a world where waif-y and broody models dominate, Rob is turning heads with his masculinity and chiseled physique.

Rob was recently featured in Givenchy’s Spring ads and walked exclusively on the runway for the fashion house. Other brands Evans has worked for include Chrstian Louboutin, Jeremy Scott, Jean Paul Gauthier and Trussard 1911. Evans photo editorial work can be seen in Glamour magazine, l’Officiel Hommes and i-D magazine to name a few. Check out the pictures below to see why the industry loves this rising star.
