Men (and women too) look forward to one singular fashion event each year, one that features half-naked women walking down a runway blowing kisses into a camera. It’s a day that has been referred to as the male version of Valentine’s Day. Tuesday (Nov. 30) was that day: The “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” aired on CBS.
]]>Consider: Feb. 14 exists for the sole purpose of
showing women everywhere just how alone they really are. If they are
lucky enough to have someone special, they often end up realizing how
useless men can truly be. The same story applies here.
theory, watching gorgeous models with bangin’ bodies strut their stuff
in heels and lingerie sounds like a great way to spend your evening, but
once the credits roll, you are stuck thinking about how unattractive
your girlfriend actually is. Let’s be real here — is it fair to compare
us mere mortals to these goddesses whose hair and makeup are perfected
by the best of the best, and who are paid unfathomable sums of money to
keep their bodies in check? No. Do boys seem to think that these women
look just as sexy when they wake up in the morning? Yes.
OK — enough with the cynicism. Despite all our ramblings, we really do love
Vicky and the show she puts on every year, and 2010 was no exception.
Whoever thought to hire Katy Perry
was spot on. Not only is she hot and not only does she look good in lingerie, but we also can’t
think of a better performer to please both the male and female portions of the audience. Yet among the star-studded crowd (which
was constantly being scanned by cameras) we failed to see her hubby, Russell Brand
We certainly got a nice view of the new bling on her left hand, but
were left wondering what her man candy was busy doing. Surely he
couldn’t have had something better to do? Most men would kill to get a
front-row seat to that show, especially if they’re married to the girl
on stage. So come on, Russell, what’s the scoop?
we don’t get the fascination with the wings. Watching model Chanel cry
at her fitting for them seemed a bit excessive. They really just look
clunky and heavy, but hey, to each her own. Although we will admit,
watching the girls strut down the runway to Akon
singing “Angel” was kinda cool, if for nothing more than seeing how happy all the models looked in that moment. But enough of the sappy stuff.
Our favorite segment? The “Game On” scene, where models donned various sporting event themed lingerie. We were hooked from the beginning with the “Knock Out”
outfit, complete with sequined boxing gloves (please, please, please
say those will be available in stores, we HAVE to have them).
What was your favorite part of the show? How about the Valentine’s Day analogy, agree or disagree?
