A day has been set. Tuesday, Dec. 10, will be the day so many have been waiting for. The "Victoria's Secret Fashion Show" will air on CBS at 10 p.m. This event is a highly anticipated day in the fashion world. Last year more than 10.3 million viewers watched it.
Which models have made the cut for 2013? Victoria's Secret Angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Candice Swanepoel, Lindsay Ellingson, Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes and Behati Prinsloo will definitely be appearing this year in the show. A source from CBS has also stated that "the lingerie runway show will include musical performances, pink carpet interviews, model profiles and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the world's most celebrated fashion show." Casting director John Pfeiffer, collection creative director Sophia Neophitou, and executive producers Ed Razek and Monica Mitro have spent time choosing what will go into the 2013 show, along with director Hamish Hamilton.
This years' show will be held in New York City at the Lexington Armory on Lexington Avenue, which is a beautiful building known for its noble events and high-profile entertainment.
Many of us are wondering what the show's performances will look like this year. It has been confirmed Taylor Swift and Fall Out Boy will perform. Last year, the bar was set high with Rihanna singing her hit "Diamonds" in memorable outfits and white sunglasses, while Justin Bieber sat and sang an acoustic version of "As Long As You Love Me" to the Angels. This all contributed to the high ratings. The Angels wore some stunning pieces, including the "12 months of the year," which was quite memorable. Miranda Kerr, Lima and Ambrosio - a few of the most popular Angels - strutted their stuff for the 2012 show. We can expect the 2013 show to be larger than life.
Many socialites and celebrities will attend the show. It will be a very elaborate, glamorous event. "One Concierge," a service that helps with the show, states many celebs will be seated in the audience. In previous years, the guest list included Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Orlando Bloom, Elton John, Elizabeth Taylor, Kings of Leon, Mark Wahlberg, Sting, Alex Rodriguez, Martha Stewart, Eva Longoria, Ryan Seacrest, Denzel Washington, P. Diddy, Derek Jeter, Lenny Kravitz, Serena Williams and Gabrielle Union. Previous performers at the event included Kanye West, Maroon 5, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Akon, Black Eyed Peas, Usher, Seal, Justin Timberlake, The Spice Girls, Ricky Martin, Sting, will.i.am, Mary J. Blige and Destiny's Child. The event is a true highlight in the celebrity, fashion and news world. It is huge.
There are high hopes for the 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Who else will be appearing? Which models will walk? What will they be wearing? The show annually kicks off the holiday season in an attempt to promote Victoria's Secret's latest projects, styles and fashions. Do not miss out on this fabulous, infamous event. Tune in with the rest of the world at 10 p.m. on Dec. 10.
