Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015
One of the most hotly anticipated events of the year finally took place this week – the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. True to form, this extravagant show was colourful, fun and flirty, combining sumptuous lingerie with eye-catching costumes and oh-so-many wings worn by the renowned Victoria’s Secret Angels. However, the show is more than just a chance for dress-up; many of the creations incorporated elements of some this season’s biggest high-fashion trends.
The AW15 70s vibe was in full force as Behati Prinsloo walked out in orange lingerie with beaded jewellery around her wrists and neck and a velvet orange cover-up adorned with extravagant fringe and paisley embroidery. Kendall Jenner also rocked a boho look in a dazzling hot pink and blue number with gold bangles stacked opulently up her arms.
Romantic goth was also incorporated into the show, particularly in an outfit worn by Bridget Malcolm which consisted of a decadent floral underbust corset and reams of flowing, soft pink silk manipulated into the style of a Victorian gown. Kendall Jenner also showcased a romantic mink cover-up which was intricately adorned with shimmering beading. During her musical performance Selena Gomez also got into the gothic trend as she wore a silky black dress with a punky studded belt, chunky leather fingerless gloves and a super-sparkly silver choker necklace which gave her outfit a luxe edge.
This season’s military vibe was also given a nod in one of Lily Aldrige’s outfits, in which she wore an open cropped naval jacket – adorned with gold detailing and grand chiffon frills – and a pair of impressive thigh-high leopard print boots. In contrast to this structured look we saw many whimsy creations too, one of which was worn by Gigi Hadid, one of the newest Angels, and comprised of gorgeous flowing turquoise print silk and an arrangement of beautiful butterflies.
Let’s not forget the renowned Fantasy Bra which this year was created by Mouawad and worn by Lily Aldridge. The bra featured over 6500 precious stones arranged to look like an opulent fireworks display; very fitting for a show which never fails to cause explosions within the fashion world.
