Hello, Hearts!
I'm working on a project I hope you'll like it when I'll finish and post it.
Meanwhile, I have decided to write about the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

This year it took place in Shanghai, China, and it's the first time in Asia.
But what is Victoria's Secret?
As many of you know, VS is an American (NOT English, pay attention, people!) brand of women's clothings and beauty products but it's famous above all its sexy, elegant and classic lingerie.

Some examples of VS lingerie. I WANT THEM ALL:

How many of you know the story of this so famous brand?
It was founded by Roy Raymond (YAAS A MAN!) and his wife Gaye in St Francisco in 1997, 8 years after he went to a department store for buying lingerie for his wife and he found horrendous nightgowns with floral print and spongy bathrobes. He studied for 8 years the lingerie's market, asked for a loan to his parents and to the bank and founded the first VS. In just one year, he earned so much that he could open another 4 stores.
In 1982 Roy sold the society, which have 6 stores, to Leslie Wexner who renewed the brand introducing new colors and new styles. This increased gainings and, in 5 years, 346 stores were opened.
At first, the brand had a male line too but Wexner decided to concentrate just on the female one.
In 90s, a sporty line and perfumes were introduced and so the brand entered the cosmetics market.
In 2006, the stores became more than 1000.

Now, stop with the story and let's focus on the show.
Every year, the VS Fashion Show takes place and so the products and the brand are advertised. At first, it took place only in New York but now, every year, different cities are chosen and drawn.
The 2017 edition took place in China, Shanghai, as I write before.
It's a very expensive show, but phenomenal too, where many models, called Angels, parade wearing lingerie and many accessories. Every year the staff chooses some themes to respect and the model who will wear the fabulous Fantasy Bra during the show. It's a spectacular (and very very expensive) bra made up by diamonds, emeralds and rubies.

Now, the question is: what is the destiny of these so expensive bras that can exceed 2 million dollars?
They are auctioned. If one year later the show they aren't sold, they come back to their designers who recover the precious gems.
Currently, only VS Heavenly '70 Fantasy Bra (worn by Tyra Bankse in 2004) and the Floral Fantasy Bra (worn by Alessandra Ambrosio in 2012) have been sold.

This year the Fantasy Bra has been worn by Lais Ribeiro and the name is Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra.

I wanna post just this photo because I want you to see Lais and her bra's beauty. It seems to me that it was created to be worn by her and only her.

Another important piece of the show is Swarovski outfit that, this year, has been worn by Elsa Hosk and it's absolutely amazing.

What we can say about the models?
They are called Angels but why?
They are so called because of the wings they wear during the show. The wings have different forms, colors and dimensions and they are the symbol of this brand. Not all the models are Angels. Just a part.
The Angels are:

You can find other photos of the show, backstage, themes or VS stuff here. It's constantly updated with new photos of the show and other model.

I just loved EVERY SINGLE theme but maybe my fave theme is Goddesses or Porcelain Angel.
I was very sorry for Gigi because she's my favourite model but I just have to be patient and wait for the next year.
Another girl I love is Josephine Skriver and this is my fave outfit by Balmain.

I found some days ago that bra and now I'm trying to find out which minor organ I could sell to get it. LOL

Now, with your permission, I wanna talk about the fantastic, amazing, talented Harry Styles.
