VICTORIA’S SECRET SHOW 2013: THE COUNTDOWNIt's official, the world renown catwalk show everyone wants to be invited to, has taken place in New York and this year was more extraordinary than ever before. The spectacular event was held by Victoria's Secret and was billed as the most expensive fashion show in history, costing £12million. If you wasn't one of the few that received the golden ticket invite then you will have to wait until 10th December 2013 to see the Angels in action.
The star of the show was Candice Swanepoel who was the lucky Angel chosen to wear the iconic Fantasty Bra, this year nicknamed “The Royal”. The bra is adorned with over 4,200 precious gems from around the world including rubies, diamonds and yellow sapphires with an estimated value of $10million.
A riot of colours, crystals and jaw-dropping costumes, this year's show took birds of paradise, a British invasion and Parisian nights as its themes with gorgeous models parading down the catwalk and a multitude of wings.
A star-studded affair, the big names weren't only bedecked in lingerie - live entertainment came courtesy of Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy and A Great Big World, while from the front row Valentino Garavani, Olivia Palermo and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld watched on.
As a massive fan of both the gorgeous Angels and Victoria's Secret, I've been finding out the insider gossip of what went on behind the scenes to share with you guys at home until all is revealed in December.
