Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show from a guests point of view actor Tayo Oyekoya

Tayo Oyekoya


If you are making a film on David Bowie as I am and Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show decides to locate to London town as the say in showbiz, you could not have scripted this.  Among those you came to the taping of the show were my friends Jamie Wood and his wife Jody who grew up a rock’n roll life of The Rolling Stones with Jamie’s father being Ronnie Wood and Tayo Oyekoya who can do pretty much anything model, stage, film and pull off that look that Karl Lagerfled likes sophisticated.

I asked Tayo what it was like being at the show from the point of view of those lucky enough to be in the audience for the taping.  Here is what he had to say about it.

So what where you feeling like the day of the show in London?

Exited, I’ve been a fan Adriana Lima for years and having been fortunate enough to do a promo shoot with her for Victoria Secrets, was looking forward to seeing her again.arts and all the other Angels.

How did you go about getting ready ?
I came through from a pre-production meeting for a my next film so I just put on a tux and came down. Now if I was in the show that would be a different matter – that would have involved a combination of gym, diet and martial arts.
How did you feel arriving at Earls Court?
Angels. Exited!!! however when I’ve visited Earl’s court exhibition centre in the past it’s to take part in a show so this was different.
What was from your point of view the look and feel?
…. glamorous , black tie and cocktail dresses, an international crowd. I felt comfortable… ready to be entertained
Any part of the show that really stood out for you?
I think Kelly Gale, Jordan and Alexandra and Adriana smashed it!
This was your frist VS Fashion show watching it being taped live right in front of you how was your overall experience?
… It was a great production. For me, events are all about having all your senses heightened from when you arrive until you leave and this production ticked all the boxes.
As an actor and performer how would you rate the entertainment of VS Fashion Show?
It’s theatre, not your regular fashion shows. It takes a lot of dedication to get into and stay in great shape and to shine on demand so it’s a big yes from me. I’ll love to sing at the show next year! There’s an Italian love song that you’ll recognise when you hear it. I’m going to record it…I’d love Adriana to play the lead in the video.
What are some of your favorite places if an Angel asked you would suggest she visit in your city of London?
I love the British video so I’d invite an Angel to enjoy some of the best art the world has to offer.
Are you excited to see the show how it will look when it is aired?
Yes but there’s no substitute for being there while it’s happening.

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Taping Highlights 2013

Even though it won’t air until December 10th, we already know a fair amount about what went down, thanks to the tweets and Instagrams of those present (who apparently used social media at their own risk), as well as the pictures on the wire. If you got away with it, you did but check for the official pictures on .

Rumors were proven untrue. The Post had reported that several high-profile models—Cara Delevingne, Erin Heatherton, Jourdan Dunn—wouldn’t be walking this year . . . but there was nothing to fear, as each of them did! Cara even brought along a soccer ball and her favorite yell


ow dish-washing gloves, because what else do you bring to a lingerie fashion show?

The $10 Million Bra was worn. As planned, Candice Swanepoel modeled the Fantasy Bra (on the right), worth a cool $10 million. How does one prepare for such an undertaking?
Adam Levine was front and center to support fiancée Behati Prinsloo (and he and his entourage reportedly cheered for her whenever she walked by). Levine’s ex, Nina Agdal, did not walk, which means we will be sadly deprived of quick post-Agdal cuts to an expressionless Levine in the audience during the telecast. Leonardo DiCaprio does not appear to have been in the house to support current girlfriend Toni Garrn, however. Perhaps he was influenced by the fact that his ex-girlfriend, Erin Heatherton, was also walking.That what you get when you go out with one angle then switch to another, (do the exchange note I wonder).

Taylor Swift was the belle of the ball. She wore a really intense U.K. flag-themed ensemble (replete with tiny hat and cape/tail apparatus) for one of her performances (an homage to Queen Victoria? as part of some sort of psychological reclaiming endeavor in the wake of her Harry Styles breakup?). She got somewhat frisky with Karlie Kloss! Later on, she wore a sparkly dress and nearly identical shoes as model Maryna Linchuk. Also, she posed with the models and blended in seamlessly! (Seriously, it will take you a good five seconds to spot her in this photo above, posted by model Lindsay Ellingson.)

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013 – Backstage Photos and $10 Million Fantasy Bra!

Candice5It all action backstage at Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013 taping for CBS. The angels are all have a blast as they get ready to rock the catwalk, soon it will be showtime and you can catch it all on December 10, 2013 on CBS. After nine months of planning and preparation, more than 35 models are now backstage at Manhattan’s Lexington Armory, getting ready to heat up the catwalk during Wednesday night’s taping of the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Brazilian native Adriana Lima is the longest-serving Angel in the show. The 32-year-old mother-of-two has been with Victoria’s Secret since 2000, walking in every one of the lingerie company’s fashion shows during that time.

This year, Lima will sport a special “Pearly Queen” look. Over 3,000 pearl buttons were used to create her outfit, to be featured in the “British Invasion” section of the show, one of the six themed segments of the night. The others are “Birds of Paradise,” “Parisian Nights,” “Shipwrecked,” “Snow Angels” and “PINK Network.”

An Angel since 2010, Candice Swanepoel don this year’s Fantasy Bra, designed by jewelry company Mouwad and worth an estimated $10 million.

Another Angel to look out for is Lindsay Ellingson, wearing a special 3D printed costume, the first of its kind to ever be showcased by Victoria’s Secret.

Other models expected to walk the 100-foot-long glittery runway include Alessandra Ambrosio, Doutzen Kroes, Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo, and Karlie Kross. This year’s show will feature more models than any year prior.
