While walking to the office on Wednesday, we noticed a huge lineup of paparazzi, security and harried looking PA’s with all-access badges running around the Lexington Armory. What on earth was going on? Turns out it was Kanye and Nicki and even Maroon 6 — all here for the taping of the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show, a wonderful event which allows viewers to really get into the mechanics and heritage of fashion. And to inspect lingerie as it is meant to be worn. The theme this year? Superheroes. :
The superhero theme was a total hit, with Anja Rubik and Adriana Lima‘s comic book onomatopoeia capes being two of the real bonafide show-stoppers in the line-up, but some other looks – like Chanel Iman’s teeny-bopper ensemble that bordered on Avril Lavigne for Hot Topic, was a real miss.
While you’ll have to wait until November 29th to watch the actual show, we managed to scrape together some pictures of the event as inspiration for future cosplayers. Hard to believe this glamorous event is set in the very same place that houses MoCCA Festival, eh?
