Taylor Swift Fits Right In At The Annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show
Taylor Swift managed to blend in perfectly with the rest of the catwalk pros.
Taylor Swift might have come from humble country roots, but those were gone and forgotten for one night of glitzy fun at the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show on Wednesday. The singer managed to fit the part perfectly, as she strutted her stuff alongside the scantily clad VS angels.
Swift's outfit looked a bit like a callback to the 90s.
For the first part of her performance, Miss Swift appeared in a flashy bodycon, with a train and top hat, all emblazoned with a Union Flag-inspired design, a la Ginger Spice circa 1997. This was all in coherence with the collection’s British Invasion theme, of course. Naturally, Taylor later donned the sparkly white dress, images of which are already flooding the interwebs and concluded the show alongside the dream team of Candice Swanepoel, Karlie Kloss, Behati Prinsloo Doutzen Kroes, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Lily Aldridge and Cara Delevingne.
The show was held at the Lexington Avenue Armory in Manhattan on Wednesday, but it won’t air until December, but for those who couldn’t wait, Swift livetweeted the whole experience.
"Tonight!! Insane! Glittery catwalk! IS THIS REAL LIFE @LilyAldridge @VictoriasSecret #VSFashionShow," she wrote, sharing a photo of her walking hand-in-hand down the runway with Aldridge.
Lily Aldrige responded to Swift, calling the experience a "runway love fest."
The show included some spectacular themes, like Snow Angels, Shipwrecked, Parisian Nights, Pink Network and Birds of Paradise, granting the designers ample opportunity to abuse plenty of glitter and feathers, as per usual. The centerpiece of the evening, however, was worn Candice Swanepoel, who walked the catwalk in a $10-millon Royal Fantasy Bra designed by international jeweler Mouawad.
The luxury piece is adorned with 4,200 precious gems including rubies, diamonds and yellow sapphires hand set in an 18-carat gold setting, as well as a 52-carat pear-shaped ruby that hangs from the middle of the bra. According to Swanepoel, speaking to the LA Times, the garment had to be molded specifically to fit her body. Sounds like ample incentive to survive the gruelling VS angel training regimen.
As usual, it was a spectacular night.
