If you checked out our interview with model Doutzen Kroes from the Spring shows, you'll know that the Victoria's Secret Angel loves two things: her son Phyllon, and french fries. This time around, we caught up with the Dutch stunner front row at the Theyskens' Theory Fall '13 show and got her opinions on more than just fast food. In addition to sharing her Winter fashion and beauty secrets, Doutzen chatted about the differences between runway shows now and in the '90s and talked up iconic supermodels like Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell. She also revealed her personal style muse — and, surprise! — it's another gorgeous catwalk fixture. See it all in our interview now.
Beyoncé Knowles wore a gold jeweled Elie Saab gown for the NYC premiere of her HBO documentary, Life Is But a Dream, this evening. She was joined by her husband Jay-Z, Oprah Winfrey, and a slew of models, including Doutzen Kroes. Beyoncé's project will air this Saturday, adding to her string of professional and personal excitement so far this year. She kicked off 2013 by celebrating daughter Blue Ivy's first birthday in the Bahamas and then headed to Washington DC, where she sang the national anthem at President Obama's inauguration ceremony. Earlier this month, Beyoncé rocked the Super Bowl halftime show with Destiny's Child, and the fun kept coming on Monday when her March 2013 Vogue cover was released. Beyoncé isn't slowing down anytime soon, since she'll be hitting the road for her Mrs. Carter Tour in April.
Before you bust out the champagne and start to hum "Auld Lang Syne," let's take a moment to reflect on what a year 2012 has been. Stars walked red carpets all over the world, launched products of their own, and gave a countless number of interviews in the process. And through it all, they shared their top beauty tricks and tips. From Nicole Richie to Miranda Kerr and more, watch to see some of our favorite celebrity beauty advice from the year that was.
Things move along swimmingly for the first 30 seconds of this video, in which Victoria's Secret Angels sing the classic holiday carol "Deck the Halls" — but after that, it's a different story altogether.
The video features Candice Swanepoel, Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Lindsay Ellingson, and Erin Heatherton decorating a Christmas tree, setting out presents, and trimming a room with bows and garlands — tasks apparently easier than remembering the words to the song. "Deck the halls of boughs of honey," Kroes sings, realizing the mistake before laughing and saying, "Let's deck it with honey!"
"We don't sing this Down Under," Kerr says of her inability to remember all the words. "We sing 'Santa Baby.'"
Whatever the case for their struggle, it's hard not to give the Angels an A for effort. See why in the video below.
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show went down in NYC on Nov. 8, with appearances from their most famous Angels, Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Adriana Lima — and all the airs Dec. 4 on CBS!
Miranda, Alessandra, and Adriana were joined by a handful of newcomers on the runway, including Cara Delevingne and Jessica Hart. The models strutted their stuff on the runway in six separate sections. Adriana opened the first portion, which had a "Circus" theme featuring acrobats and performers on mini Segways. Earlier in the day, Miranda Kerr told us backstage she was most excited for the circus bit. She said, "I'm amazed at what they can do with their bodies!"
The five following sections included "Dangerous Liaisons," "Calendar Girls," "Pink Is Us," "Silver Screen Angels," and "Angels in Bloom" motifs. There were a handful of memorable ensembles — Alessandra modeled the 2012 Fantasy Bra, covered in $2.5 million worth of gems, while Miranda donned a Swarovski-embellished corset. Doutzen Kroes seemed to be having a great time in a pink pom-pom ensemble, and Karlie Kloss was tasked with wearing a pair of target wings. Lily Aldridge, whose Kings of Leon rocker husband, Caleb Followill, was in the front row, took a turn down the runway in a patriotic flag skirt.
The front row was packed with celebrities. Vanessa Hudgens, Alexa Chung, and Lily's husband, Caleb, were on hand to cheer for their friends and witness the spectacle, as well as the performances. In addition to the Angels, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Bruno Mars took the stage. Justin performed two songs with a spirited group of backup dancers. It was Rihanna, though, who may have stolen the show. She closed out the final section, and it was hard to keep one's eyes off of her long enough to see the Angels take a final turn.
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show took place in NYC last night. You'll have to wait until Dec. 4 to watch it on the small screen, but we've got a candid look at all the fun now. The VS Angels assembled at the Park Avenue Armory to prep for their annual catwalk event and we caught up with many of the ladies in the hair and makeup room. Miranda Kerr told us she's most excited about the circus portion of the show, while Alessandra Ambrosio couldn't wait to model the $2.5 million Fantasy Bra! Karlie Kloss and Lily Aldridge both dished about how great it is to be a part of the VS family with so many of their friends. Click through to see photos shared from behind the scenes!
The fun didn't end when the catwalk closed at last night's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. From there, the Angels traded their lingerie and wings for a bevy of sexy cocktail dresses, then headed to NYC's Lavo for the afterparty. There, the cast of Angels, including Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls — who traded their runway looks for a sparkly silver number and a very sexy mesh mini — was joined by the night's big performers, like Justin Bieber and Rihanna, as well as a slew of celebrities who helped keep the party going. Poppy Delevingne stepped out to support sister Cara, while Alexa Chung and Vanessa Hudgens were on hand for all the festivities. Click on for all the photos — and of course, what all the models were wearing postshow.
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show took place in NYC last night, and the Angels got together to celebrate a job well done afterward! Alessandra Ambrosio and Miranda Kerr were among the supermodels who posed on the pink carpet at the NYC club Lavo. They were joined by close friends Adriana Lima, Erin Heatherton, Doutzen Kroes, and many more. The bash offered a chance for the girls to let loose after weeks of rigorous training and dieting to hit the runway. Lily Aldridge, who welcomed a baby girl five months ago, tweeted a photo of sliders and fries with the caption, "Come to mama!" Isabeli Fontana had told us earlier in the day that she was most looking forward to celebratory Champagne at the party. There were plenty of celebs on hand to toast with the Angels, including Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Szohr, Russell Simmons, and designer Alexander Wang. The show's musical guests, Rihanna and Justin Bieber, also stopped by Lavo for a fun end to the exciting day.
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show will be filmed in New York City on Wednesday, and more information about the annual extravaganza is being revealed as the clock ticks closer to showtime. Herein, everything we've learned about who's walking in the show, what they'll be wearing, and how they've prepared for what is arguably the world's most-watched runway.
