    Karolina Kurkova

    Guys ... WHERE IS KK?! Like ... I know she's prioritizing her family, and that's definitely cool. But ... she's an Icon. And her legacy is suffering. It's not enough for her to just be an IWC brand ambassador or to do some random editorials here and there. Landing a S'Oliver campaign each season does not a supermodel make. And Karolina IS a legit supermodel. Obviously she won't be scoring several major campaigns every season, because of course they go to the new hot models of the moment. But she SHOULD be scoring blue chip work more often.

    That golden Balmain is a DREAM on her. Thanks for posting those pics!! It's a shame about her hair though. I feel like she's had a rough few years now trying to figure out what to do with her hair. Maybe it's time to go to a kind of sleek bob style? Like - what if she styled her hair like this:

    Cool editorial. But like ... KK has the best legs in the industry. She's actually PERFECT for those Versace pants. But why isn't she photographed standing up and showing them off properly?

    That is a truly fabulous editorial. KK is slaying it in every shot. Particularly the closeup one in that amazing striped Balmain shirt. Could be an ad campaign. Speaking of campaigns ... it would be REALLY NICE if KK got a good one this season. Hopefully her agency switch pays off!

    Karolina That pose is pure high fashion elegance. (Love Stam, too. She's due for a comeback)

    dislike the hair (is often an issue with KK, if I'm honest. lol) LOVE the outfit, though.

    I'm really curious to see how this goes for her. Obviously, KK hasn't been satisfied with the work she's been getting over the past couple of years. I wish she had signed on with DNA instead, but on the other hand - she's really the only BIG name supermodel on Wilhelmina's current roster, so maybe they'll work super hard for her. Crossing my fingers this is a smart decision. I'd love to see KK make a comeback!

    Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (2017)

    As a matter of fact, I wasn't aware of a "1 account per person rule", though it certainly makes sense. I honestly assumed that my account had been deleted or something, because I couldn't find any info. Regardless - thank you for merging them. Much appreciated!

    Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (2017)

    YES! Except I can't remember my damn password - and beyond that, I can't remember whatever email address I logged into here with in 2004 (which is when I first started posting and created that account ---- way back when this was ChilaX. haha) So I had to make a new one. lol. Thanks for remembering though

    Also - Jo walks like a Tyrannosaurus. I think she's incredibly beautiful, so soft and lovely. She exudes warm kindness. Also her body is absolutely ridiculous. But that WALK! Oh no, hunty. She needs some help with that. It's like a clodhopper getting on down the runway.

    Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (2017)

    Just watched it. I think this was easily one of the worst since they started televising it in 2001. And also perhaps the most maddening of them all, for me. Because there was actually a TON of potential for this to be great. What killed this for me was ... The Bad: - THE EDITING. Honestly, it was nothing short of embarrassing. There wasn't a single shot that I could find that lasted more than 3 seconds. And the jump cuts didn't even stay on the same model; it would spend 2 seconds on the model approaching the end of the runway, for example a closeup of her outfit. Then would immediately cut to a closeup of the model behind her's outfit! Just so completely amateur and chaotic. Aside from Candice's opening, I can't think of a single example of the camera actually allowing us to properly see a model's WALK. Karlie was in two segments and there were zero extended or full-length shots of her walking. Insane. Why even take a model's walk into consideration if you're not going to actually show it?! Please, just look at the 2003 show - at Naomi Campbell's segments. This is how it should be done. - THE MUSIC. It's time to move away from musical performers and go back to the dj remix sets. I love Harry Styles, I think he's sexy and charming and actually enjoy his solo album and I felt like his songs were the best fit, really. But STILL - it just is too distracting, taking away from the models. All of the rest of the music did not go well at all. There used to be epic moments where the music would change slightly for the model to announce their entrance. Think about how epic it was when Tyra came out to "Rockstar" by N.E.R.D (2003 show). That was in the middle of a segment and the music changed to mark her entrance. This truly gives the models a chance to SHINE and there were none of those in this year's show. - THE CHEEEEEEESE. This was the cheesiest, most cringe-worthy thing I've seen in a long time. The Kung Fu segment was ridiculous. All of the endless prattling on about how this is the biggest opportunity of their lives and "such a dream come true" and blah blah blah. It's just soooo basic and stupid. It makes all these women sound like airheads, and I know that's absolutely not what they are. It's also like they've instructed every model in this show to have the identical personality. They all have to be cutesy, flirty, coquettish, young, chirpy and ditzy. That's it. There's no room for any diversity of personality. ZERO authenticity. - TOO. MUCH. CONTENT. There were far too many models and far too many outfits. They only have 42 minutes of showtime, and a bunch of that is filled with the idiocy of the aforementioned segments and screentime taken by the musical performers. So they only gave each model about 6 seconds of time per outfit (some were probably less, to be honest). They had so many for the Balmain collab that they had to send the models out in pairs! Suuuuuch a fail!! ...Ok, now with all of that being said, I am probably most frustrated because I think this show had the opportunity to be really wonderful. What follows is...The Good:- THE MODELS. Yes, I think there were too many of them, but they ALL looked incredibly beautiful. The hair and makeup was stunning. Their bodies looked so fit and skin was glowing. The smiles were beautiful. And most significantly, THE DIVERSITY!! It was so refreshing and awesome to see so many different nationalities represented. - THE OUTFITS. Again, there were too many of them. But there were some truly gorgeous ones. I actually liked the Balmain collab much better in motion than I thought I would. And the Porcelain section was absolutely beautiful. I loved the outfits in Nomadic Adventure, as well. Like, honestly it was all just fantastic. Slightly difficult to really see, due to all the quick cuts and such ... but I digress. FINAL VERDICT. 4/10 Sooooooo yeah. I mean, This is the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. It ain't difficult or complicated - the concept is as follows: today's biggest models walking the runway in wildly designed and elaborated lingerie. And this year had fabulous models in beautiful outfits. It SHOULD have been a killer year. But basically it failed in every other regard and, thus, FAILS overall.
