It was filmed weeks ago, but the 2010 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show finally aired on network television, Tuesday (November 30) night. Featuring some of the industry’s top models, including Jessica Stam, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Chanel Iman, Karolina Kurkova, Selita Ebanks, Liu Wen, and Emanuela de Paula, the show was a definite improvement on last year’s. And the ratings reflected that, with the show drawing the event’s largest audience in seven years.
Veteran Angel Adriana Lima opened the show in a segment entitled, ‘Tough Lough,’ and she also wore the notorious fantasy bra, which this year came in at a worth of $2 million, and took over 1500 hours to make. Newbie Chanel Iman, whose top model status is steadily on the rise, closed the show with the ‘Pink’ segment, wearing bubble wings that the she said weighed nearly forty pounds.
The show was filmed at the 69th Regiment Armory in NYC, with performances by Akon and Katy Perry. Overall, it was a lively event, and hopefully things will only continue to improve with next year’s show.
