Like its previous seasons, the just-aired Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013 on CBS television network once again offered a heady concoction of some gorgeous and some outlandishly bizarre lingerie pieces.
The event sent its winged angels down on the runway in designs created under six themes- British Invasion, Birds of Paradise, Parisian Nights, Shipwrecked, Snow Angels and Pink Network.
The eye-catching outfits shown on the show were model Karlie Kloss’ very on-trend shocking pink outfit, replete with vibrantly-colored wings and Erin Heatherton’s intricately woven, red inside and pink outside feathered cape.
One of the most beautiful ensembles on the runway was model Lindsay Ellingson’s 3D-printed shimmery wings dress, which the innerwear maker created in collaboration with the 3D printing marketplace Shapeways, architect Bradley Rothenberg and Swarovski. The dress featured a sequence of entwined snowflakes gathered into a unique geometric shape that when combined creates a 3D printing effect.
The show also featured slightly quirky pieces like emoticon printed sweatpants and cropped tops as well as some kids’ clothing-inspired pieces.
Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel was this year’s lucky wearer of the show’s major attraction—the Fantasy Bra. Priced somewhere around US$ 10 billion, the bejeweled ensemble was lavishly studded with gems and a giant ruby.
