When it comes to female sexuality, there’s probably no better experts than the Victoria’s Secret Angels. Have you seen those tall beyotches strut their stuff on the glittered runway of the brand’s annual fashion show? I admit, as a gay man, I probably have an unhealthy fascination with all things VS-related. When you add an annual list to the mix, you know I’m all over it.
Watch as Behati Prinsloo, Karlie Kloss, Erin Heatherton, Candice Swanepoel and Alessandra Ambrosio reveal the winners of Victoria’s Secret 8th annual list of sexiest celebrities in Hollywood. A few of the sexy honorees include Amanda Seyfried (Sexiest Hair), Blake Lively (Sexiest Legs), Kerry Washington (Sexiest Lips) and Jennifer Lawrence (Sexiest Sense of Humor) to name a few. Check out all the winners below.
We all have obsessions that are hard to explain. Patrick’s currently are all those Harlem Shake videos popping up everywhere. For me, my Achilles’ heel is anything Victoria’s Secret related. There’s something about watching those gorgeous Angels work their magic on the runway, beach or whatever location, that I find really fascinating. What can I say, I like pretty things.
As part of their Swim 2013 campaign, the lingerie brand filmed four stunning swim videos featuring tracks from the hottest artists in the world. The first one featured the ladies strutting their hotness to Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven.” VS recently released the second and third in the series with Candice Swanepoel and crew lip syncing to Maroon 5′s “Woman” and Justin Bieber’s “All Around The World.”
The fourth clip will debut on March 1. In the meantime, check out Behati Prinsloo showing off her bikini body to her boyfriend Adam Levine’s song serving as the soundtrack. Other angels featured include Erin Heatherton, Lindsay Ellingson, Barbara Palvin, Lais Ribeiro, Sara Sampaio, and Karlie Kloss.
Since I share numerous posts featuring men in swimwear, I thought I’d take this opportunity to give some gender equality. Plus, I’m a little obsessed with Victoria’s Secret and their annual runway show ;)
Who knew Victoria’s Secret had a swimsuit issue? I certainly didn’t. Apparently, the company’s annual catalog has been kicking around for sixteen years. Like the Sports Illustrated issue, one lucky woman gets the honor of gracing the cover. For 2013, not surprisingly, it’s Candice Swanepoel. After that segment which aired during the most recent Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, it’s obvious the brand is in lurve with the South African beauty. After all, they did “discover” her.
“It was such an honor to be picked for the cover. It is such an iconic catalog. Before I was a model, I used to see Gisele Bundchen, Tyra Banks and all of those iconic women on it. It is amazing that a little South African girl can get on the cover.” – Candice Swanepoel
While an honor, I’m sure Candice is hoping she gets to be the one who wears the million dollar fantasy bra for this year’s show. I know I would. Getting to wear that glittery ostentatious thing is EVERYTHING for an Angel.
Swanepoel appears in the catalog with Erin Heatherton, Doutzen Kroes, Miranda Kerr and Vogue’s top 2012 model Karlie Kloss to name a few. Photographer Russell James snapped the girls on location in Miami and Turks and Caicos. Check out a promo vid titled “Bikinis & Bruno Mars” featuring the ladies working it out to Mars’ huge hit “Locked Out of Heaven.“.
“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.
The Victoria’s Secret models are found lip syncing in a video that is supposed to be Justin Bieber‘s lost personal footage. You may recall that is exactly how they filmed the actual music video to Bieber & Nicki Minaj’s “Beauty and a Beat” track, which (not so coincidentally) is the song the models are lip syncing to.
I wonder if this video adds fuel to Selena Gomez’s fire considering she allegedly wasn’t too thrilled about some of the pictures Bieber was posting on Twitter with the models while at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (which airs on December 4).
Are you going to watch the Victoria’ Secret Fashion Show this week? I’m quite certain Donovan will be ;) Enjoy he video below.
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.
I suppose if you’re going to have a rebound, it might as well be another leggy model. Even as a gay man, I’m jealous of Adam Levine dating Victoria’s Secret Angels. Not the sex part, but to have access to the yearly Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Besides the Academy Awards, the annual lingerie extravaganza is my Super Bowl. I’d kill to score tickets to sit first row of that glittered runway. Hell, I’d even sell my first born to hang out backstage. Yup, I’m a gay modelizer.
In April, the Maroon 5 frontman broke up with VS model Anne Vyalitsyna or Anne V for short. The two were in a high profile relationship for two years. Don’t feel too badly for Anne V. The blond stunner has rebounded as well. Reports say, she’s shacking up with actor Jared Leto. Plus her career is on an upswing. She just landed her first acting role in the upcoming “A Good Day To Die Hard“- the fifth installment of the Bruce Willis franchise. Still, she’s probably not happy with Levine hooking up with a fellow VS model. Isn’t there an Angel code or something? Find out who Adam’s new girlfriend is below.
