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.

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.

The Sexy Angels of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2012


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.
