The countdown to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show begins!
While you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to get a look at all of the sparkly, barely-there
contraptions looks on the Angels‘ perfectly toned bods, WWD has a sneak peek at what we can expect from the show: Namely, glitter, feathers and, wait for it, real snake eyes.
According to the trade, taxidermy snake eyes are “key accessories” to be used in the show’s opening Circus-themed segment. Creepy. UPDATE: Well not that creepy. We just got word from Victoria’s Secret that that little tidbit was misreported. They’re costumes will include plastic snake eyes.
Other themes include: Dangerous Liaisons, Pink is Me, Calender Girls and Silver Screen Angels. The latter will feature a special Swarovski anniversary piece commemorating the crystal company’s 10-year involvement in the show. It’s to be modeled by Cameron Russell (pictured), who will also be sporting Nicholas Kirkwood fantasy heels and a whopping $5 million in jewels by London Jewelers, including a 16-carat diamond ring. Russell only got her wings in 2011, but it looks like she’s climbed in favor this year: Her outfit is to be the showstopper.
As for Miranda Kerr, who wore the million dollar bra last year, she’ll don an emerald-green velvet bodysuit encrusted with Swarovski crystals. In total there’ll be 65 costumes and 28 pairs of Angel Wings–which means there’s lots more corsets, crystals and rippling abs to come.
