Yesterday one of the most anticipated events of the year, the Victoria`s Secret Fashion Show hit the TV screen showing renowned artists and beautiful models sharing the stage to publicize the brand's new underwear designs for the next season.
The gala featured the participation of seven great artists: BB Rexa, Shawn Mendes, Rita Ora, Halsey, The Chainsmokers, Kelsea Ballerini and The Struts. All of them accompanied the famous models in their journey through one of the most famous lingerie catwalks in the world in which the followers of the brand could see the new proposal, marked by the tartan painting, floral prints and designs inspired by the cosmos.
The night was imbued with exciting moments such as the farewell of Adriana Lima as an "angel" of Victoria's Secret. The brand took advantage of the parade to pay homage to it. The acclaimed model was moved to tears when she paraded alone on the catwalk to receive the applause of the audience, dressed in transparent lingerie embroidered with silver stones and huge white feather wings.
One of the most anticipated moments of the show came along with model Elsa Hosk. The Fantasy Bra valued at 877,000 euros made with more than 2,100 Swarovski diamonds crossed the catwalk to dazzle more than one.
Also this year the firm opened its doors to diversity on the catwalk with the signing of Winnie Harlow, the Canadian model with vitiligo that has succeeded on the catwalks and also broke the grounds in the world of modeling.
Meanwhile, the expectation also rested on the appearance of Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid who have spent a year without the famous "wings." Gigi Hadid was denied a visa in China, where the parade took place last year, due to an alleged case of racism when she published a video showing her squinting her eyes to imitate Asians. This year she returned with strength and did not disappoint her followers wearing one of the night’s designs of colorful floral prints.
As it happened already in previous years, the show of this American lingerie brand woke up critics by the ideal of beauty proposed, which is unrealistic, objectifying women.
Although it began with a video of the models saying they felt "successful", "powerful" or "strong", some fashion specialists criticized their exaggerated sensual attitude they have shown in other years, wiggling their hips, throwing kisses, or drawing hearts in the air.
