On the way leading to Christmas, we have a series of exciting events to tide us over till the big day. No other event sparks as much fantast, excitement and beauty as the Victoria secret fashion show. This year was no exception. The show took place in Shanghai, China, a city bursting with innovation and fashion.
The catwalk has always been more of an event with a combination of theatrics, high profile performers and of course an extortionately priced bedazzled bra. The performers this year included ex-One Direction member Harry Styles, Miguel, Leshe Odom Jr , Jane Zhang, and Yundu Li.
This year, was slightly different as the brand collaborated with Balmain on a handful of looks, producing leather infused rocker styled looks that could be worn as outerwear. Some of the most regaled models walked the runway such as Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepol, and Alessandra Ambrioso. The looks incorporated intricate headwear, drawing global inspirations for each of the looks. The show itself was consistent with the aesthetic of previous shows. However, the Balmain X VS collection is step into a more fashion focused direction, a step Victoria Secret has not taken before, and could be indicative of more collaborations or a slow change in aesthetic direction.
