Victoria’s Secret extravaganzas are known for their pomp, splendour and gorgeous models wearing angel wings and behaving rather different than on any other runway. The shows’ success is not only about the behaviour, but also about the way the preparations look like.

“For other fashion shows you can be skinny, but for Victoria’s Secret, you need definition,” says Doutzen Kroes. This is probably why men secretly hide in their closets and watch Victoria’s Secret instead of a football match when the show is finally aired few weeks after.
I am – to be perfectly honest – quite jealous about how fantastic these models look and when my partner became unhealthily interested in the last show, I got more cheeky. I told him I think only a man who buys his woman at least a pair of Victoria’s Secret knickers should be able to watch a show. Or just a moment when these knickers were worn by the Angel at the show!
Some history (erm, I think I can’t write about pants, bras and such…): every year, Victoria’s Secret show features a set of lavish lingerie. There is a tradition of designing a “fantasy bra” – it is a bra made exclusively out of diamonds, jewels or precious metals. The first Victoria’s Secret show was broadcast online in 1999. In 2004 the show was cancelled.
