Op-Ed: The motivation behind CBS's Victoria Secret Fashion Show

By Nancy Houser     Nov 30, 2011 in Entertainment
New York - If you saw the annual CBS Victoria Secret Fashion Show on television last night, it would do two things for you. You would be overwhelmed by the beauty and glamour of the latest in fashions, and you would be shocked at the thinness of the young models.
The Victoria Secret Fashion Show brings to mind the joke, "Yo Mama's so skinny, she has to stand in the same place twice to cast a shadow." Nevertheless, for those who have followed the models of Victoria Secret, being thin and not-terribly-thin is part of the fame. This year's show designed several fantastic themes: underwater, ballet, passion, superheroes, New Orleans turn of the century, and their brand's line of Club Pink.
The money behind several of the Victoria Secret designs was out-of-this-world. One example is the Fantasy Treasure Bra, was a $2.5 million dollar hit in diamonds and gems. The lucky model who wore this trinket was Australian model Miranda Kerr, wife of her cheering husband, Orlando Bloom, in the fashion show's front seat---parents of a new baby boy born this past January. Orlando Bloom is known for playing in several of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies with Johnny Depp and also the Hobbits movie.
Meanwhile, young Karlie Kloss made her fashion debut at 19-years of age along the fashion runway. She closed the show in the Club Pink line wearing an angel design with soft floating wings heralding behind her. When she danced with Adam Levine and Kanye West, her wings did a little shimmy of her own, adding to the angelic look of her design.
Karlie also told reporters the key to being an angel! "I think the main thing is that being a Victoria’s Secret angel is that they look for girls that shine from the inside and that’s something that every one of the angels on that runway has, inner confidence and a joy. You have to be that from the inside and I think that’s why the show is so much fun. Everyone has fun out there." (USAok)
Several pop singers like Kanye West, Jay-Z and Maroon 5 performed at the big event, which included West's hit "Stronger" and Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger." The finale of the show was Nicki Minaj and "Super Bass."
Last year, the 2010 earnings for the annual fashion show was $5.5 billion dollars, which this years show is expected to surpass. The 2010 brought in 209 million viewers, spanning 90 countries. (Huffington Post)
