Victoria’s Secret taped two shows today in London in order to bring you every angle possible December 9th, 2014 on CBS. Here to the music of a very talented recording artist The Shakn’ Jamaican are some of the action from backstage.
Some of the biggest names rock closed out the 56th annual Grammy Awards, including Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, Queens of the Stoned Age, Dave Grohl and Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac, but producers of the show began to roll the credits before the encore had finished.
Afterward, an upset Reznor took to Twitter to blast CBS and the show’s producers for pulling the plug on the all-star rock performance.
What really pissed me off was some of the celebs in attendance who bailed including Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars and Macklemore, before the lights went up at Staples Center.
The Beatles duo Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, meanwhile, were some of the many honorees who stuck around for the two-song encore, because they truly are rockers who would not dream bailing on them.
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 VF.com .
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.)
It 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.
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.
