Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Paris 2016, is at 10PM EST
It was the show the NFL didn’t want, choosing the latter British pop band as the headline act for Super Bowl 50 on Sunday afternoon at Levi’s Stadium. But Metallica made a good argument that the local band deserved the bid, and not just because members built their fame in clubs a bike ride away from Super Bowl City.
It’s a big day tomorrow November 13, 2013 in the entertainment world it’s the taping of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. If you wanted to match supermodels, wearing almost nothing to music than Taylor Swift would be the perfect choice as we all know she has broken a few hearts herself. Skin and music on CBS.
Indie pop band A Great Big World and UK newcomers Neon Jungle will also rock the runway, with all four artists making their Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show debuts.
Swift is currently touring the globe behind her Red album whereas Fall Out Boy released its fifth studio album Save Rock and Roll in April, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200.
A Great Big World crafted a six-song EP funded entirely on Kickstarter, which led them to sign with Epic Records. Since then, they released the viral hit “This Is the New Year,” which was covered by the cast of Glee, and “Say Something,” which hit No. 1 on iTunes after they performed it with Christina Aguilera on The Voice. The New York-based singer-songwriting duo Ian Axel and Chad Vaccaino are now set to release their debut album, Is There Anybody Out There?
UK girl group Neon Jungle recently completed a tour with Jessie J.
The show being taped tomorrow will be aired on CBS on December 10, 2013. Below is a look at some of the scene from 2012 show backstage.
Rihanna rocked the lingerie look at Wednesday night’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show in New York, providing the highlight of the live-music soundtrack and holding her own on the catwalk with some of the world’s top models. And those models even had props, including Adriana Lima’s ringmaster wand, Doutzen Kroes’ body cage and several pairs of the oversized wings that the retailer has made its signature. It would be a close contest who got the biggest wings: Toni Garrn’s giant poppy pair or Miranda Kerr’s swan-style feathered pouf. Only Lily Aldridge could boast star-spangled wings that shot out silver sparkles.
Mostly, though, models are encouraged to smile, ham it up and show off the extra time at the gym that most admit to in the weeks beforehand. “It’s highly televised, and you take that into consideration,” said model Joan Smalls ahead of the show. “This is kind of not the same as other runways. You have to prepare your body: No. 1 is the wings are heavy, and No. 2 is you have to be comfortable with your body because the camera will pick up on it if you’re not comfortable and confident.”
There’s an emphasis on glitz, skin and dramatic production here, not wearable undergarment trends for typical Victoria’s Secret shoppers. It was divided into six sections: Circus, complete with acrobats, contortionists and a sword eater; Dangerous Liaisons; Pink Is Us; Silver Screen Angels; Angels in Bloom; and Calendar Girls, which allowed Bruno Mars to serenade a model for each month of the year.
For his first song, “Beauty and the Beat,” Bieber, wearing low-slung white pants and a white leather studded vest, sat alone with his guitarist in the mellowest part of the show. For “As Long As You Love Me,” however, he brought in backup dancers and interacted with the models while moving around a giant makeshift pinball machine.
“It’s like a dream come true,” said Bieber on the pink carpet before the show. “I would rather be here than anywhere in the world.”
The show will be Broadcast on Tuesday, December 4, at 10p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
