The countdown is on to the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, taping tomorrow, well Wednesday November 7th New York time, so that means Thursday our time. Once again we’ve got our very own Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda Kerr who is rumoured to be the front-runner to open the show to be joined once again by Shanina Shaik who is on cloud nine and finally Jessica Hart is making her runway debut as confirmed last week.
Another Aussie who has featured prominently in Victoria’s Secret catalogues (and scored her first campaign with the lingerie & beauty giant) this year has been Elyse Taylor, but I’ve yet to hear if she’ll be walking the show this year, and there’s Victoria Lee who’s been doing some catalogue work for them as well … but there hasn’t been a whisper of her inclusion. I would love to see Jessica Gomes score a VS gig!
The girls will be joined by fellow Victoria’s Secret Angels; Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Doutzen Kroes, Candice Swanepoel, Erin Heatherton, Lily Aldridge, Lindsay Ellingson and a bevy of other Supermodels and the entertainers this year include Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber rocking out on the runway. So far rumoured confirmations include; Barbara Palvin, Bregje Heinen, Cameron Russell, Cara Delevigne, Doreothea Barth Jorgessen, Elsa Hosk, Flavia de Oliveira, Frida Gustavsson, Hilary Rhoda, Isabeli Fontana, Izabel Goulart, Jacquelyne Jablonski, Jasmine Tookes, Joan Smalls, Jourdan Dunn, Karlie Kloss, Lais Ribeiro, Lily Donaldson, Maud Welzen, Sharam Diniz and Toni Garn.
There will be two fashion shows — one at 4 pm and a second at 8 pm — at the Armory – with the entire show featuring Swarovski crystals celebrating their partnership of 10 years. We can expect to see Miranda Kerr wearing an emerald-green velvet bodysuit encrusted with Swarovski crystals and dyed-to-match feathers for the opening Circus segment (second last image in the gallery below). Expect to see 65 costumes and 28 pairs of Angel Wings.
The show will air on December 4th in the US, and I believe the taping is taking place next Wednesday 7th November. To honour the three Aussies, I’ve pulled together some of their latest Victoria’s Secret pics to celebrate!
And check out some of the behind the scenes pics exclusively at WWD, previews have been few and far between this year, I understand they are a bit tighter with what they are releasing this year.
