The 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show


Recommended Posts

New here and just caught up with the thread! Here's some thoughts: 

  • Regarding Kendall, this thread has made me realize that people don't seem to know what she actually looks like. She's always had relatively bad skin. It actually looked much better in the backstage photos without makeup than what her skin used to resemble before she started modeling. As for her lips, I don't see much of a difference in them, they look pretty much the same as always. She looked very uncomfortable with her wings in TRA, she walked oddly slow. I expected a little more from her because she's usually relatively decent on the runway. Never a standout, but not horrible either.
  • Is no one going to mentioned how awkward and tragic Taylor Hill's walk in DA was? Her end of the runway poses photographed beautifully, but in action, she looks like she stumbled and like she did not know what to do with those big wings. And from the interview videos posted here, she seems to have no charisma. She comes across very awkward and she's not very well-spoken for a spokesperson. Jasmine was pretty much carrying that entire interview
  • Speaking of Jasmine, all I can say is wow. What a beautiful woman. Wish she would've opened the segment but she really didn't even need to because you could hardly tear your eyes away from her either way
  • Don't kill me, but I don't see the appeal of Grace Elizabeth. She's pretty, but very forgettable in my eyes. I find her features quite nondescript, I can easily confuse her with several other models 
  • In the minority here again, but I actually think the little bit we've seen of Bella's walk was not bad at all. I found Gigi's lip syncing to Gaga in the background of one of those videos quite cringeworthy. But I may be biased because I simply don't like Gigi. Though I do agree she was much more beautiful when she had the extra weight on her
  • How is it that Lais supposedly tripped and fell "flat on her face" yet there's not a single video or picture of this? I haven't even seen any mention of this in the media and considering how much media was present, I have a feeling this either didn't really happen or was grossly exaggerated and truly just a stumble. Either way, She's such a bombshell, she deserves better from VS. Her outfit for TRA was flat out ugly, but so was the entire segment so no surprises there. Don't even get me started on that g-d awful dragon (if they want to up their ratings, having a white model open the show in a Chinese/Asian-inspired dragon costume was not a smart move. Especially when they hired 4 Chinese models for the show. There are gonna be so many people that see that and change the channel right away. There are so many way to take from cultures in an appropriate, non-offensive manner and they just can't seem to get it right. For all the work that goes into a show like this, it's quite lazy)
  • Alessandra deserves more appreciation. She looked absolutely stunning and she's one of the only models that brings energy to the runway. I truly hope it's not her or Adriana's last year any time soon because the two of them pretty much carry the show in my eyes. Majority of VS's current lineup of both Angels and non-Angels look like they are between the ages of 14-19 years old. I don't care to see them in lingerie. It's creepy and unappealing, even if they aren't actually those ages. Many of them look like they're still in the early stages of puberty 
  • Maria Borges is such a stunner. I'd love to see her become an Angel one day, especially because she doesn't look like any of the other Angels and right now, most of them blend together to me. It's just a mix of tan, light hair, and light eyes. They desperately need more visual diversity 
  • Irina is beautiful and undeniably sexy, but I don't think she fits VS. She fits what they should be and want to be, but not what they actually are and I think that's why I couldn't get on board with her being in the show. It would've made sense a long time ago, but not anymore 
  • The outfits overall this year were much worse than last year IMO. As someone else said before, it seems like the actual lingerie was an afterthought and they channeled all their energy into costume designing. I wish they focused more on the things they were actually selling to customers. The backstage bras everyone wore were more beautiful and exciting than almost any of the lingerie that was on the runway
  • In general, not really excited to watch this year. Seemed like a waste of money to go to Paris where they didn't take advantage of pretty much anything Paris has to offer. The audience was tragically small. At least 50% of the lineup was forgettable and/or questionable.

If I ever get famous I'm deleting all of my old sm and starting over because I just KNOW I have bad things I've said from years back when I was younger. I hope that people are able to look past this, apparently she apologized already. She was young at the time and talked reckless, it's not fair to drag up people's old words because chances are they've grown up and changed as a person. I wouldn't want anyone to do that to me so I'm not even going to comment on the situation. Just my 2 cents though.

If CBS blurs the butts could you imagine what they would do to the plethora of vaginas walking down the runway? :dry:

 

Not asking of vaginas, that would be too much obviously, but a strategic seethrough of outer parts would be nice.

Total disappointment in fake lingerie transparency, ALL the models seem to wear  some sort of second pair of panties, I've never seen a girl wearing under-panties-armor under see-through lingerie, and if she did, I'd fly her off the bed :beating:

Seems exactly what Kelly Gale had to wear :mellow:

I know, all of my fav Angels :wub: How many events is Adri doing? I know she has Wendy Williams, AOL Build with Sara, and now the store event. I'm just glad that VS finally knows how to distribute press events amongst the Angels now. At least I hope they keep it up this way. 

 

Thank you @AngelAshley94 for the video! Cindy and Sara's wings look beautiful in motion I can't wait to see it in HD on tv. 

 

Adri and Elsa are also doing the Today Show

Most of VS lingerie is very plain these days because it is a lower price. Most of "eyecatching" things you will see in their designs are rhinetones/glitter/metallic, variety of colors and strapiness. You won't see any innovative designs or unique fine laces like European brands because they would have to sell it at a higher price and Americans aren't used to that. The materials they use are also synthetic like polyester unlike other brands that use higher quality materials like silk, leather etc. These costumey outfits are their way of trying to make it look more special.

 

What i'm talking about is that fact, they determine the show's looks with whatever they policy of quality/prices have now in the stores. Is the same contradiction everybody is talking about: doing the show in Paris, rent the Grand Palais and do some questionable backgrounds but never use and take real advantage of the place. Use the lingerie you can buy in online works for segments as Secret Angel, but not for segments like TRA or even Dark Angel, with more fantasy and creativity in the themes (on the idea, not the result).  I said this before, if they just wanna sell the lingerie they have in the stores, better do a show more like Etam's where you don't add cheap fabrics and the result is not that costumey. if you go big, go big in everything :beating:

 

So Jasmine didn't close the show?? But didn't they make her told that in an interview? :sad: Hope they air the bruno-mars-version of her walk.

 

Exited to see Elsa and Adri together! :excited:

@Polqu I agree about the lingerie thing. That's part of the reason why it's just not up to par anymore. 2011 on is when they started to really focus on their lingerie and adding on all extras and they started doing the whole shop the runway thing. I get it. They're a brand and they want to sell the lingerie. They make the individual pieces and then just pick lingerie to go with it. Most of the time the lingerie doesn't fit the look of the pieces and that's why it looks messy.

@Kevork89 i was forgetting the whole issue about colour matchings, you're totally right. :hang:For example, in Bill's case, if you wanna dress the show openner as a motherfucking dragon, why don't work on the real lingerie? The patterns and palettes of chinese dragons are awesome, an outfit based on this, a bra, corset, panties etc with some texture and fabrics to resemble the dragon could ending as absolutely majestic outfit. And then, add some wings or even the Bill's little cousin, but not rounding the model's body, bc the rest of the outfit is just blue/turquoise lingerie. :c025:
