What the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was really like....

So the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was one of the most overwhelming, colourful, energetic and exciting events I have ever been to. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole event; however I have to say it is a completely different experience seeing the whole event in real life, dressed to the nines with all my friends, compared to on my laptop, on my own with a blanket and ice cream. If you think about it; Victoria's Secret make their money off of the CBS showing of the Fashion Show, not inviting 100 of us Fashion Students for free! So with that in mind..  It shouldn't have come to a surprise to me is that the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, as fun as it was, was first and for most a television production.
But more on that later, for now here are my close but crappy 3rd row clips, and my reviews on the Show!

Taylor Swift's Performance of Blank Space during the Dream Girls Segment

The Dream Girls section was my favourite! I love the song Blank Space (who doesn't) so I was already dancing in my seat; but once Lily Aldridge came out wearing the powder puff Angel wings and the baby blue teddy; it was just so feminine and cute! I loved it. All the other outfits in this Section were in the same vein; soft, feminine, and pastel lingerie; worked beautifully.
The one thing I should point out now is that the pastel colours of this section are what made it the best section for showcasing the lingerie; instead of overpowering the garments they flowed with and showcased them. But there was nothing I loved more than Taylor's glam dressing gown and bodice ensemble; the black lace and baby pink go together better than strawberries and cream. I want one!

Ariana Grande's Performance of a Medley for the University of Pink Segment

Okay so I don't like Ariana Grande.
I don't like her because: her music and style is really not my style; HOWEVER- her songs were so catchy I couldn't help but dance along. I love love loved the Pink high knee boots they made. Very Chanel AutumnWinter14-esque! The outfits were awesome but if there was on piece I could take home would be the Pink Harem pants; A* comfort and style right there. Digging it.

List of Things that Happened at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show that You Won’t see on TV!

1. Ariana Grande Getting Wacked by Elsa's pink fluffy graffiti wings!

Here are some A* funny pictures of Ariana's face after she got bumped.
But it wasn't as bad as some have made it out to be; but her singing definitely stopped/dropped during the minor bump.
But she made a nice recovery and kept on going.
Take a look:

2. The Various Big Sweaty Camera Men running after the models.

But mad respect though. Been there;
tough job running backwards with your eye in a camera lens!

3. Candice's Wardrobe Adjustment Shuffle and cheeky Taylor Swift bum slap!

After having just watched the show, I know that they took out the cute shuffle, but surprised and sad they took out the butt tap! It was so cute and authentic- such a pity!
