Soaked in purple, the glittery runway of Grand Palais opened its doors for Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2016 on November 30. Right from Adriana Lima and Lily Aldridge to fairly new Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, 51 of the world's best fashion models strutted their stuff at one of the most celebrated fashion shows.
Swarovski-embellished brassiere paired with elaborate, flowing capes, giant wings and thigh-high boots dominated the collection this year. Singing sensations Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and The Weeknd kept the momentum of the show going by performing to some of their loved numbers that went with the six themed sections: Road Ahead, Mountain Romance, Pink Nation, Secret Angel, Dark Angel and Bright Night Angel.
Highlight of the show?
Jasmine Tookes flaunted a brilliantly toned body in an emerald green fantasy bra that is worth $3 million and features as many as 9,000 precious stones. It took 700 hours for jeweler Eddie Borgo to create the fantasy bra, which weighs more than 450 carats.
What else happened?
The models, even though jaded from the hair and make-up sessions, partied after the show ended. They also shared their two cents on the kind of the lingerie that should be worn with certain clothing items.
Lily Aldridge, one of the angels, told the Telegraph that wearing the right size bra is the key to look good and confident. "Make sure you see a specialist, so many people wear the wrong size," she added. Meanwhile, dutch supermodel Romee Strijd told the British daily that she loves to wear a no-lines panties from VS as that is extremely comfortable when she is wearing skinny denims.
Martha Hunt however disagrees; she likes a good thong. "I like the ones with a really small g-string, which just disappears. I'm so used to wearing them for work now and they are so comfortable. My tip? The thinner the string the more comfortable. It doesn't seem like it would be, but it is," she added.
