The Victoria’s Secret Fashion show has to be my favourite runway show of the year. It’s fun, sexy and I just love watching the famous gorgeous VS Angels rock their wings and outfits! For the first time ever, the show was filmed in London last week and people could actually buy tickets to attend. At the costly price tag of £10,000 per seat however, so a bit of out of my price range haha.
Performances this year came courtesy of Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Hozier and Ariana Grande and 47 models hit the runway for the show, decked out in ensembles with giant butterfly wings, full feather skirts and gold knee-high stiletto boots. Plus this year both Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio donned the Fantasy Bras – encrusted with thousands of jewels and worth $2 million each – and Kloss wore gilded angel wings made of 18K gold. Here some photos of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2014…
Themes for the show this year were; Gilded Angels, Exotic Traveler, Fairy Tale, Dream Girl, University of Pink, and Angel Ball. Walking down the runway is “all about confidence,” Victoria’s Secret model Lily Aldridge said before filming the show. “For the Victoria’s Secret show they want to see the girl’s personality, which makes it so special. It’s all about being happy and healthy and having fun and letting your personality shine.” I totally agree that what makes it so much more fun to watch – the girls look incredible and we all secretly envy their bodies and wings but we also fall in love with their personalities. My favourite VS Angels are Doutzen Krous, Candice Swanepoel, Behati Prinsloo and newcomer Dutchie Romee Strijd.
The show aired on CBS on 9 December and last night in London on 4Music. Did you watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year?
Winter has arrived in London and it’s quickly getting colder and colder again! One great thing about winter to me is winter fashion. I just love big knits, scarves and snuggly-warm clothes. Here is some of my favourite winter fashion inspiration to bundle up this season!
I am loving oversized jumpers, combining leather and wool, mixing prints (for example tartan and stripes), layering and knee high boots! For even more fashion inspiration, you can follow me on Pinterest HERE.
Are you loving any particular trends this winter?
I arrived back home on Monday morning and because it was a lovely autumn day we decided to make the most of the good weather to visit the Japanese Garden in The Hague. Based in Clingendael Park, the Japanese Gardens are only open to the public twice a year, during spring and autumn; from May to mid June and then again the last two weeks in October.
The Japanese Gardens are pretty magnificent and were actually placed on the list of national historical monuments in 2001. I’d visited the garden years ago in Spring but never before had I seen it in it’s autumn splendour. Here some photos of the gardens, don’t you just love all the autumn colours?
Wearing: Black waxed jeans – ZARA // Burgundy V-Neck Knit – H&M // Camel Coat – MANGO (old) // Grey and silver snood scarf – H&M // Tortoise Wallace Sunglasses – Bailey Nelson // New Balance 420 Burgunday & Grey (Link) Am looooooving my new kicks, they are so perfect for fall and winter and are super comfy!
After visiting the gardens (admission free) we wondered for a bit longer through Clingendael Park to soak up even more autumn beautifullness…
It was a lovely afternoon and am glad we did it that day because it’s pretty much not stopped raining in Holland since that day. Ha but have to say, I still love autumn. Do you?
Back in June I attended the wedding of two lovely friends in Wiltshire, which is in South West England. The ceremony was in a beautiful old chapel in the countryside and afterwards the celebrations continued on at Longleat House – which is one of the most stunning venues I’ve visited! We had the best day and evening so thought I’d share some photos I took (on my iPhone) that weekend.
I absolutely love the dress I wore that day. I wish I could say it’s mine, but it’s not – I borrowed it of a friend of mine. It’s a silk one shoulder gown by Zimmermann, one of my favourite Australian designers. They make the most beautiful dresses, perfect for weddings or for bridesmaids.
Navy silk one shoulder dress by Zimmermann // Nude clutch by Jones (similar style here) // Earrings are the Sabine Crystal Studs (link) by MaisonMiru as seen here // Wallace sunglasses by Bailey Nelson, as seen here //
Zimmermann don’t have any stores here in the UK (sad face) but you can shop online. Love some of these dresses, I want…
Aren’t they the most good looking couple?
We all had the best day celebrating their special day into the wee hours of the night! Wishing them both all the happiness in the world and a HUGE thank you for such an amazing weekend.
One of my new favourite necklaces at the moment is this super sparkly crystal wreath choker necklace! Initially it might seem like quite a fancy piece that needs to be worn with an evening dress or ball gown, but I actually really like dressing it down with a t-shirt or jumper for a more casual look. Or just add it to any simple little dress, like this floral number for some added oomph to your look. It’s so elegant and fun for day or night.
