Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes, Lily Donaldson and Candice Swanepoel—these are without doubt some of the most envied women of our times. They’re sexy, they’re confident, and they are ‘Angels’ sparkling with Swarovski crystals.
These crystals add a unique shine and brilliance to our collection that truly can only be achieved by Swarovski.
This time, the Angels are on a European mission: the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will take place in London at Earl’s Court on December 2, 2014. Adding to the buzz, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande and Hozier will rock the runway alongside them. And Swarovski, steadfast partner of twelve years, will make sure the Angels sparkle divinely with more crystals than have ever featured in a Victoria’s Secret show to date.
The overall theme will be the legendary Black & White Ball of 1966 hosted by Truman Capote in New York, with Swarovski adding crystalline extravagance to the ensembles. Other themes are Gilded Angels, an opulent look featuring exquisite embroidery, beading and crystals; Dream Girl, a Fifties high-end boudoir pin-up look; Spicy Adventure, introducing colorful ethnic and gypsy-inspired outfits; and University of Pink—think Rihanna meets Cara Delevigne—making an edgy statement before the glamorous, grand finale: the Black & White Angel Ball.
For extra wow, Victoria’s Secret has created a custom look exclusively for Swarovski designed by Belgian-born couture genius Serkan Cura and featuring 150,000 crystals. British model Lily Donaldson will show his handcrafted creation, which is sure to set the catwalk alight.
“We’re thrilled about the partnership,” says Monica Miltro from Victoria’s Secret. “These crystals add a unique shine and brilliance to our collection that truly can only be achieved by Swarovski.”
The best show of the year, of course, is unwrapping the gift and finding out what's underneath the paper, so get ready, get sexy, and enjoy!
