Most Recent Runway Walk

The most recent BIG fashion show was in Milan Italy, for Milan Fashion Week. Helena Christensen’s perfectly arched leg on the Versace podium, people are saying it was the most memorable fashion moment in Milan Italy this season of MFW. At Donatella’s show, which marked 20 years since the death of Gianni Versace, was a fairly symbolic reflection of this Milan Fashion Week. With their supernatural looks and never-ending careers, Naomi, Cindy, Claudia, Carla and Helena are the embodiment of the source of eternal youth and life

This 45-minute workout contains three circuits with 4 exercises in each circuit. Circuits contain a cardiovascular exercise, an upper body movement, a lower body movement and a core movement. The program has progressions over 4 weeks and ideally you might do this workout twice a week on a Monday & Friday with a strength workout on Wednesday. There is a reason for all the intense training before they walk the runway. One pair of wings can weigh up to 60lbs, some may weigh even more than that.

All the Angels put their fabulous bodies down to the age-old mix of good genes, a healthy diet and plenty of exercise. Ms Ambrosio is a fan of surfing and the Brazilian Butt Lift workout, Ms Lima is an avid kick-boxer and Ms Aldridge is a Ballet Beautiful evangelist.

THE ANGEL’S DIET

Lily Aldridge: is a VS Fashion Show veteran. She knows what works for her and what doesn’t. Lily has one major thing she takes out of her diet before the show. “The big thing I cut out is wine. And then a week before the show, I stop salty foods,”

The Brazilian bombshell, Alessandra Ambrosio: she doesn’t really diet. Her only weakness is Brazilian food. “I don’t cut out any food groups. I’m all about moderation and eating something different every day. Obviously I try not to splurge on pasta, but if I’m back in Brazil where everything is pasta- or bread-based — and so yummy — I’ll eat whatever I want, then go back to lots of salads and chicken or fish with vegetables as soon as I’m back in LA.”

Gigi Hadid: knows food and she’s confident about her mentality when it comes to dieting. “Eat clean, and work out to stay fit — and have a burger to stay sane,”

Elsa Hosk is another toned angel who loves working out. She’s not a snacker though — she’s more of a three meals a-day kind of girl. “I don’t usually snack at all. I have main meals, and I make sure I eat a lot so I survive to the next meal,”. “I generally always eat what I want. I think when you work out a lot, you can afford to eat more because your body’s metabolism is higher. I like healthy food and prefer that anyways, but if I want pizza or a can of Coca-Cola every once in a while I’m going to have it. I just try to have a few slices and that’s it.”

Jasmine Tookes is a strong and toned angel. People that have tried eating like her for a week realized it was surprisingly easy because she mainly sticks to protein and vegetables. She also doesn’t change her diet before a show.”I think balance is so important and I like to be able to eat what I want. I still have my pizza and burgers and when I’m training hard, I eat a lot of protein, like chicken,”

GUCCI

The fashion week streets are alight with colour and sparkle, thanks in large part to Gucci. Designer Alessandro Michele’s OTT designs have brightened up the concrete jungle as fashion insiders invade for fashion month. From embellished handbags to panther print sweaters, the entire collection seems to be on display in the streets of Milan. Weather it’s a subtle hit of Gucci or a head to toe look, there’s no denying that the world’s most stylish are on board with Alessandro’s aesthetic.

GUCCI

It was an intense, contradictory, and literally dark experience, this Gucci show. It was full of glitter and glam, ’80s shoulders, English tweeds, Disney and Sega references, and all the recognizable multi-everything orchestration of retooled vintage with which Alessandro Michele has revived this brand as a powerhouse with global reach. Yet one of the most commercially successful designers in the world—perhaps the most—deliberately wanted to make it near-impossible to see his clothes. Strafing the audience with strobing spotlights in a cavernous, misty, half-lit hall full of replica antiquities, Michele essentially set out a manifesto for resisting the pressure to speed ahead, and to change what he does.

Michele has been intensely busy this year, to put it mildly. The exponential growth of Gucci is a phenomenon of our times in fashion; a game changer which is the envy of all luxury competitors. If there’s melancholy, dissonance, and noise in the way Michele put this collection over, well, maybe that’s an accurate reflection of the way the contemporary world feels, too. On the other hand, something else he said in passing reveals exactly the detail-mindedness that has proved such a raging success in every store and duty-free Gucci shop on planet Earth: “I’m trying to push the fact that fashion is full of little things.”

There is playfulness and conscious self-parody going on now. What stops it from falling off the edge into first-degree literalness is the underlying oddness: There’s something unsettling, almost undead, about his strange breed of wan eyebrow-less girls and geeky boys. Take all the assemblages apart, and there are stores-full of separates and accessories to continue the forward-rolling of this brand; tons for women and men, boys and girls to buy into. Perhaps there are no great political depths going on here, but there was one subtext the audience didn’t glean—because they were literally sitting on it. Michele had the lines of “A Song For Bacchus,” a poem written in the 15th century by Lorenzo de’ Medici, embroidered onto the stools upon which they were seated. “How beautiful our Youth is/That’s always flying by us/Who’d be happy let him be so:/Nothing’s sure about tomorrow.” Carpe diem. That’s a modern-enough sounding moral for most of us today.

 

 

The Biggest Fashion Show Awaited By Teens Around The World.

THE VS ANGLES ARE BACK

FITTINGS for the Victoria’s Secret show, which will be staged in Shanghai and aired on CBS on November 28, are already underway at the lingerie brand’s New York headquarters. As more models take to Instagram to confirm that they will be walking in the winged spectacular, here’s a list of the Angels, models and newcomers to expect on the runway so far. Don’t miss casting director John Pfeiffer’s guide to the new faces to look out for too.

MODELS WALKING THE 2017 RUNWAY:

  1. Karlie Kloss
  2. Candice Swanepoel

  3. Martha Hunt

  4. Stella Maxwell

  5. Gigi Hadid

  6. Bella Hadid

  7. Bella Hadid

  8. Grace Elizabeth

  9. Xiao Wen Ju

  10. Daniela Braga

    THESE ARE SOME OF THE RETURNING MODELS, IN ALL THERE WILL BE 61 ANGELS WALKING THE RUNWAY THIS YEAR!

 

Every year, the Victoria’s Secret show brings its famous bejeweled Angels together for what is consistently a glittery catwalk extravaganza. It’s the most-watched fashion event of the year (800 million tune in annually) with around $12 million (about £9.2 million) spent on putting the spectacle together – a huge figure considering most runway shows cost an estimated $million (about £700,000).

The venue

The location of the Victoria’s Secret show changes frequently, but this year’s event has been heavily rumored as Shanghai. The brand have been steadily building its presence in mainland China over the past few years, with a total of 26 stores there. Nothing has been confirmed by the label as of yet.

There will be glitter and lots of it

Whether backstage, on the catwalk or at the after-party, Victoria’s Secret would be nothing without its unimaginable levels of pink and silver glitter. It’s basically a larger-scale version of Paris Hilton’s birthday party.

The date

An exact date has not yet been announced, but the show usually takes place mid November. It is then aired on television in early December.

The Dream Angels Fantasy Bras, $2 million each.

The performers

With previous acts including Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars, we can expect a strong set of performers this year. Justin Bieber has been mooted as one possible name, after a slew of Victoria’s Secret Angels starred in his recent music video, 2U. He has performed on the show before, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be invited back. Alternatively, Selena Gomez could be a shoe-in as she’s friends with the current roster of VS models and has new material out at the moment. If the brand really wants to attract serious attention then Zayn Malik would be a strong option. As the boyfriend of VS favorite Gigi Hadid, the millennial power couple would guarantee headlines.
