It's a good thing the Victoria's Secret fashion show will be on TV in a couple of days, because I'm not really sure how to describe it. Something like, "At last night's Victoria's Secret show, naked women, but for $3 million bras and tweed bustles, walked down a triangular runway, around the Black Eyed Peas who performed with mimes and trapeze artists, in front of a diverse front row including Jay-Z, Carine Roitfeld, Michelle Trachtenberg, Dr. Dre, Patricia Field and Sir Richard Branson. The giant blow up dog that blew up out of the floor at the start of Pink section took our breath away and we left the Armory covered in glitter," would be a good start. It was sort of like fashion Disneyland; there were lasers and dancers, people were in the sky, wings were made out of balloons, Fergie was actually great and the whole production made a Chanel show look like it's put together by a high school stage crew (a really talented one, sure). If there'd been clothing, I'd say it was the most fun I've ever had at a fashion show.

The 10 Most Ridiculous Looks From the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show
Victoria's Secret put on their annual runway show spectacular last night and, as usual, the highly produced event was an assault of sparkles, feathers, cleavage and legs for miles. There was a "Tough Love" theme that involved lingerie with a hard motocross edge followed by "Game On" which featured Isabeli as a weightlifter, and then "Country Girl" where Angels got to where wings made of straw and wheat. The "Pink Planet" segment--the VS Pink portion of the show--seemed like a tribute to Rainbow Brite, which was not a bad thing. The front row and after party was packed with a very amusing range of celebs including some fashion ones. Carine Roitfeld, Alexander Wang and Zac Posen were all there. So was Adrien Grenier and Vin Diesel. Vin Diesel was very enthusiastic about the show and on his feet for most of it. Not that we can blame him. There was a lot of hot ridiculousness to be gawked at. Here are some of the most insane get-ups from the show. Photo credit: Victoria's Secret and NY Daily News.
