The Victoria’s Secret Angel Wings Through the Years


Aside from being asked to walk the runway, one of the biggest honors for any model cast in the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is receiving a pair of wings. Months of hard, exhausting work go into creating these larger-than-life accessories that are made up of everything from leather and lace to five pounds of Swarovski crystals! And much like snowflakes, no two wings are ever alike.

That being said, the history of the VS Angel wing is an interesting and yet, relatively unknown one. While many assume that the wings were created specifically for the annual fashion show, the first set of wings were actually used in a commercial to promote the brand’s famous ‘Angel Bra’ several years before making their debut on supermodel Karen Mulder in the 1998 fashion show.  The wings garnered so much interest that the lingerie giant has made sure to include them in its show every year since with the task of trying to top what it did the year before.  Read the rest of this entry »

WATCH: Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Duet in Karl Lagerfeld’s Latest Chanel Film

Karl Lagerfeld is pulling out at all the stops for Chanel’s upcoming Métiers d’Art extravaganza in Salzburg, Austria. So much so in fact, that he’s enlisted aspiring actress Cara Delevingne and music sensation Pharrell Williams to duet on an original song, “CC the World,” featured here in a new Sound of Music-esque teaser video to promote next Tuesday’s show.

Shot by Lagerfeld himself, the short video entitled,”Reincarnation,” tells the story of how the Chanel jacket was born beginning with Gabrielle Chanel’s trip to Salzburg in 1954.  As the story unfolds, the designer fell for a jacket worn by a hotel elevator operator — played in the video by Williams— which would later inspire her iconic design.  According to WWD, Cara and Williams play a reincarnated Austrian emperor and empress, who come alive from a painting in a dream sequence. It is said that the two will also be the faces of the collection’s campaign, also shot by Lagerfeld, but of course.

The full video will be unveiled the night before the big 2014/15 Métiers d’Art collection on December 1, but you can check out the official teaser in the video below!

These Models Brought the Glamour to the 2014 American Music Awards

When a gaggle of pop stars, models and Hollywood personalities take over an arena, there’s bound to be plenty of fashion to gawk at. Case and point: Sunday night’s annual American Music Awards where high-shine, thigh-high slits and plunging necklines were the name of the game.

Unsurprisingly, some of our favorite looks of the night came courtesy of BFFs and Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show stars Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift, who stole the spotlight with their front-row love fest.  The blonde beauties had a blast shaking it off with pals Selena Gomez and Lorde in midriff-bearing Pamela Rolland and Michael Kors ensembles respectively, while Gigi Hadid had jaws dropping in a white Prabal Gurung suit that put her toned physique (and black lacy bra!) on full display. Meanwhile, Heidi Klum caught the attention of music fans everywhere in a thigh-flaunting skirt and crop top set courtesy of Versace, while supermodel-in-training Kendall Jenner looked runway-ready as she hit the carpet in an oh so sheer Yigal Azrouel gown.

Look of the Week: Natasha Poly Makes ‘Boho’ Chic in Emilio Pucci

One of the many perks of being a supermodel is having the uncanny ability to look amazing in just about everything. And yet, there are some pieces that prove challenging for even the most genetically blessed women in the world— a problem Natasha Poly didn’t need help navigating in this tricky Emilio Pucci number.

At Wednesday night’s annual New York Ball, the Russian beauty hit the red carpet alongside Pucci designer Peter Dundas in a floor-length gown featuring a bright, bohemian print, ruffled tiers and cutout details.  While the gown’s black and brown palette made it appropriate for the season, the added bursts of pink and orange added intrigue and separated Natasha from the otherwise monotone pack.  Sure, the dress could be described ‘busy’ by some, but on Natasha, it’s nothing short of perfection.
