Taylor Swift Ready To Sing – Let’s Rock Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013

taylor-swfit-sp-111113 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.

Modeling Where Women Earn More! With Cameron Russell

Cameron Russell When it comes to fashion David Bowie knows a lot about it and what Cameron Russell has recently been talking about at TEDx Mid-Atlantic, in which she described herself as having won “a genetic lottery.” In ‘China Girl’  Bowie sings, “I’ll give you eyes of blue” and it was Hitler and his top brass that talked a lot about being white, with blue eyes, and tall.  David Bowie is married to a former supermodel Iman, who once told me, “David always says when you go out you should look like art”. While Iman broke the colour barrier you will learn from Cameron Russell that majority of the models selected for shows are white.

Iman would go to acting classes and Bowie and I would go out to dinner,  always working on the craft there just are not that many roles for women of colour, David told me. Soon Iman started her own cosmetic company catering to women of colour.

Modeling is one of the few professions where women actually out-earn men. And across all jobs, studies have found that more attractive women earn more. A woman’s value is too often skin-deep. In 2004 a study found that resumes with very African-American-sounding names were 50 percent less likely to get called for an initial interview. And racial bias in salaries is overwhelming. While white women make an average of 78 cents for every man’s dollar, for African-American women that number drops to 62 cents, and for Hispanic women to 54 cents.

Physical appearance plays an enormous role in who gets seen. When women and other marginalized groups do get access to the media, they often have to fit into a narrow definition of what the people in charge are looking for. Women, for example, are more likely to be portrayed as victims when they get news coverage, and are more likely to be depicted wearing sexy clothing when they are cast in Hollywood’s leading roles.

I could tell you horror stories of actress sitting down with me for lunch and asking me if I thought they got a boob job or the nose fixed it would help them land a part. I always told them, just be good at the craft of acting. Some listened others did not. I had friends who were plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills and going to one of their parties guests came to say hello and asked me how I knew the doctor? I told them “I used to be white”, for a minute they paused to ponder if that could have been possible. Then again I was living in a land Hollywood where looks are everything, and those loosing their looks try everything to hold on to it.

There is a lot one could say about Cameron Russell, but why bother when you can hear it directly from her. Below is a short video clip of her modeling just to give you an idea what she has been up too, if you are not up on your modeling homework and then her talk at the presentation entitled “Looks aren’t Everything. Believe me, I’m a Model” at TEDx Mid-Atlantic, in which she described herself as having won “a genetic lottery.”, In October 2012.

Most of the time we don’t do those things to make ourselves happy, we do them for someone else. I think we should start talking about that. – Cameron Russell

Where Angels Like to Tread !

Angels if you are aware enough are everywhere. Having left Fairmont Plaza Hotel New York City, I am out with a new angel in Central Park taking her for a buggy ride after polishing off a bottle of Ultra Premium Tequila Los Azulejos thanks to Elizabeth owner of Cottonwood wine agency. My angel is provocatively tantalizing, but it’s hard work to get her in the mood to let you bust into her corset because the two of us are facing a horse’s rectum. This is no ordinary angel she is a Victoria Secret Angel.

Many of the Victoria Secret Angels started working out for the taping of the 2011 show today six months ago. They got into shape, and Chanel Iman put on 15 pounds to get to 115 pounds, and what ever fuel these girls run on let me tell you they burn it all up. I have seen them eat and they love food. When I had my trainer in LA and hit Golds gym in Venice beach it did not matter how much I ate my jeans still felt they would fall off me. Great food, great workout’s, overall love for life, and a great sense of humor can be found in all the 38 angels that walk the hip slinging walk today. This is not the same buzz of Milan, Paris or London during fashion week, this buzz stands all alone as the Oscar of all buzz’s and it’s because this is New York and it alone rules the airwaves of the fashion world. The focus is on one brand a brand that has evolved since 1995,one that is not scared to embrace technology allowing the buzz to fill the airwaves and excite and delight the fans. The angels are tech savvy and they have been building up to this day for a month, and this is just the taping of the show which will air on CBS on November 29th. It is just thrilling to be floating around this event and letting the addictive buzz filter into your tequila laden blood stream, taking you even higher. It’s not hard to get higher watching Tom Pecheux do his cat-eyes on the angels while sitting watching the gaudy galaxy of women parade past you with Lancomed gaze, and cherry lips if one blows you a kiss it’s as if you where on morphine floating above New York City with angels all around on a magical cloud to never never land, you just sit and observe like watching a movie or falling in love. Please give me more tequila, as the pink silk robes fall off and it’s time, it’s show time, you will be blown away on November 29th when you watch this show.
