Victoria's Secret Fashion Show!with full video coverage!
I don't know about you but this is the highlight of my year!I've been expecting it all year long and I loved it! Here's a bit of what you missed if you didn't see it ! I'm so excited, it was amazing!Each year they manage to do something more to make me want to buy everything! Well the truth is that even without the fashion show this brand has lovely designs and the only drawback is that they don't have stores outside of US and Canada. I want VS in Greece and I'm sure you all feel the same way about your countries! Enough about my babbling let's go to the goods and prepare for a serious fall of your self-esteem (mine went down the sink...).

And the final video with Rihanna killing the runway! (and Bieber staring at her :p )
WHAT YOU DIDN'T SEE!If you think that nothing happens in the well calculated shows you are wrong. It was not just Erin's Hat that didn't make it in the runway.... as written on Business Insider
The show's "Circus" opener included performers from the NYC company AntiGravity. One of the men was doing tricks with a hoop and appeared to hit his head. He made a face when it happened, but thinking he was joking, many people in the audience laughed. But then he started bleeding profusely and ran off the stage. A spokesperson told us the performer, Nate Crawford, was fine and "went on to perform the next show."
Rihanna was wearing a long, flowing cape and tripped slightly during her performance of "Diamonds In The Sky." But like a true professional, she played it off and even managed to walk backwards in the difficult ensemble. When Justin Bieber got onstage, he got more screams than the other performers, Rihanna and Bruno Mars, even though the audience was composed of adults. Women continued to scream throughout his set. Many women in the audience wore sequined cocktail dresses, but because of the nasty nor'easter in New York, also wore boots instead of heels. Adriana Lima began dancing with Rihanna during the closer on the runway. It may not be clear on TV, but the light fixtures in the audience changed for each section of the show. There were lanterns for the "Angels In Bloom" portion and silver stars for the "screen sirens" part. At the end of the show, all of the models stormed the stage. Huge, star-shaped balloons poured down from the ceiling, which the models kicked into the audience. Many audience members kept the balloons.
Also picture you won't find in the VS site:
Why was Miss Thanks Giving left out of the Calendar...? Because some people thought it was controversial...Well it's just me but in a country that actually celebrates thanksgiving it's kinda ironic don't you think? Well VS and Kloss both apologised and removed that outfit from the TV show broadcast."We are sorry that the Native American headdress replica used in our recent fashion show has upset individuals. We sincerely apologize as we absolutely had no intention to offend anyone. Out of respect, we will not be including the outfit in any broadcast, marketing materials nor in any other way. "
