With a flourish of feathers and a shower of gold — not to mention miles of toned limbs — Victoria’s Secret staged its biggest show ever at the vast Earls Court exhibition center here Tuesday night. Some 3,400 guests watched models including Candice Swanepoel, Karlie Kloss, Alessandra Ambrosio and Lily Aldridge ham it up and strut on stage in all their winged glory.
There were live performances by Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran and Hozier. While they sang, the models twirled, Barbie-like, in lacy peignoirs; loped down the catwalk in huge feathery capes and jackets — like giant peacocks or Native American chieftains — and popped their fingers into peace signs as they posed for the cameras in garter belts, corsets and filmy underwear.
Then there were the wings: They came dusted with feathers, sculpted in gold, iridescent, butterflylike, Tinkerbell-ish, and dragonfly-shaped. Some were even architectural masterpieces.
Nicholas Kirkwood also created shoes for the event. Two intricate, hand-embroidered styles will launch post-show exclusively at his London flagship on Mount Street and at nicholaskirkwood.com.
The Pink line was designed by Nasir Mazhar, a British designer known for his urban take on sportswear. “He has created a tracksuit in organza,” said Neophitou. “So it looks really sporty, but it’s actually really glamorous.”
The London show, where guests included Kirkwood, Leane, Joely Richardson, Nick Rhodes, Tamara Beckwith, Abbey Clancy, Mel B and Zara Martin, is understood to be the most expensive runway production ever put on by the brand.
After the lights went down on the catwalk, and as guests tucked into a buffet dinner, models emerged in gowns, ready to party.
