Victoria’s Secret: the angels on their little cloud …
This is another achievement for the famous American lingerie brand. This is another opportunity to reveal uncommon mannequins to the world.
On Wednesday, October 30, 2016 at the Grand Palais in Paris, the last parade of Victoria’s Secret took place. This is the first show of the brand in France. International artists were present on stage. Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and The Weekend sang for the brand. On the program, 45 minutes of elegance and prestige to present sexy lingerie and the “Pink” range, aimed primarily at teenage girls (it is for this range that the Hawaiian singer has lent his voice).
20 million dollars: this is the budget of this event, thus positioning it at the top of the ranking of the most expensive fashion shows in the world. In comparison, a parade can cost up to 5 million euros for the biggest fashion houses. In the expenses, there are huge staff to pay over several months, security worthy of a diplomatic reception, artists, travel, rental of the prestigious hall … In short. Lesx Wexner, the businessman and owner of Victoria’s Secret, has seen the big picture.
On the podium, 54 young women had the honor of parading. Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Taylor Hill, Joséphine Skriver and Jasmine Tookes (who will be the highlight of the show) will be among others. They are used to scrolling for the brand. Some of them were invited to parade like Cindy Bruna, Gigi Hadid, Devon Windsor or Karlie Kloss … In the clan of the new ladies there is Bella Hadid (whose sister is also part of the adventure), Irina Shayk, Luma Grothe and many other beads of stars.
Whether white, blue, black or purple, the underwear is lush. And to highlight these lingerie, the models are also dressed in large angel wings such as goddesses parading in paradise, on a podium of clouds. Other accessories like a dragon, flowers, glitter showcase the other outfits. We assume that these garments of noble materials are used such as cotton, silk, lace, and many other textiles.
Lady Gaga when she made a sensation by unfolding her wings during her show hidden in her costume. Should she be jealous of the angels?
The centerpiece, the famous “Fantasy Bra”, was worn by model Jasmine Tookes. A magnificent bra designed by Eddie Gorgo estimated at 3 million dollars. Adorned with diamonds and emeralds, for a weight of 450 carats, it took 7 months to make this garment.
Jasmine Tookes has been employed by Victoria’s Secret since last year. From the age of 25, she started 11 years earlier for Abercrombie & Fitch. Since then, she has posed for major industries such as Paco Rabanne, Louis Vuitton, Tom Ford or Calvin Klein, to name but a few. Born on the west coast of the United States, it originated in Africa, Brazil and India.
After the effort, comfort. The mannequins who had been deprived for months and who chained the sports activities to create a silhouette of dream, now have the right to eat what it seems to them, beyond the limits of the acceptable. Mannequins would have even been seen in a Parisian luxury restaurant with food … burgers !!
