2009 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Unveiled: Anja Rubik, Chanel Iman, and Anna Jagodzinska Work It

Nov 19 2009 - 6:16pm

>> Abbey Lee Kershaw [1] wasn't feeling well [2] backstage, neither was [3] Eniko Mihalik, but they pulled it together to walk in the 2009 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which taped today in New York City — on a big, sparkly V-shaped runway — and will air on CBS Dec. 1. Many of the girls chatted [4] about [5] what they had for breakfast — coffee and fruit for many — but Anja Rubik, who was convinced [6] to walk the show for the first time by good friends (and fellow walkers) Mayna Linchuk and Caroline Trentini, admitted: "I've decided this will be my starving day today."

This year's big surprise?  Heidi Klum [7] decided to walk for the twelfth show in a row, after all, six weeks after giving birth to her fourth child. Adriana Lima, on the other hand, who gave birth Sunday, sat this one out; Emanuela de Paula and Flavia [8] Oliveira, rumored to walk, were also nowhere to be seen.

The show features five sections of twelve outfits each — this year's themes are Star Trooper, All Aboard, Pink Planet, Enchanted Forest, and Romantic Journey. As show stylist Charlotte Stockdale explains it [9]: “We came up with the idea of this girl who lands from outer space in Paris. She gets on a train that comes to a halt in Pinkland, where pink girls get on and off. Then they go into this fairy-tale forest and little lady bugs and butterflies land on them and vines grow up on their clothes. Then, there’s Tick-Tock Time; the wings in this section are based on clocks — there’s one modeled after a pocket watch with metallic feathers. And she ends up in this regal realm of princess-ness, where the wings have Swarovski [10] jewels and peacock feathers.”

Zac Posen, Alexander Wang [11], Carine Roitfeld (in [12] Tom Ford [13] for Yves Saint Laurent [14] Fall 2002), and Patrick Demarchelier were all [15] in attendance, and Chanel Iman tossed [16]her handbag into the audience as she walked.
