(via ew.com) – Last night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was chock full of buxom beauties, bedazzled bras, and Beliebers. The sexiest night on television opened with a bang and kept its momentum alive throughout the show thanks to the musical stylings of Rihanna, Bruno Mars, and Justin Bieber.
1. Circus Act
Ringmaster Adriana Lima opened the show in style. After the shock wore off that it was humanly possible to be that fit two months after giving birth, I became more aware of the show’s aesthetics. The circus motif, marked by the angels’ mime and clown costumes and professional aerial contortionists, coupled with the bizarre song mix made the first runway walk truly memorable. As The Doors’ “Break on Through (To the Other Side)” blended into Missy Elliott’s “Get Ur Freak On,” I had a clear vision of what the rest of the night would hold: rock & roll and sex.
2. Diamonds and Lace
Even with a bevy of semi-naked ladies strutting beside her, Rihanna managed to steal the show with her first performance of the night. Wearing a black, strapless, corseted dress, the songstress was dressed more demurely than usual, but sill looked smokin’ hot thanks to her gown’s high slit and garters.
3. The Show Must Go On
In the most dramatic moment of the night, an angel lost her… hat. The behind-the-scenes cameras followed model Erin Heatherton backstage as a team of stylists struggled to pin her top hat to her head. Dressed as “baby New Year” to open the calendar girls segment of the show, a reluctant Heatherton was forced to take the plunge with an incomplete look. How could the audience possibly have known that she represented January without that pink hat?
4. Retro Fit
Bruno Mars may have been singing “Locked Out of Heaven,” but he was surrounded by angels on stage. Accompanied by a live band, Mars fit the part of an old-school musician in the 1950s-themed calendar girls segment. He probably landed on Santa’s naughty list by flirting with the scantily clad Mrs. Claus, but we love him just the way he is.
