Nothing says “holiday season” like eerily similar-looking, freakishly attractive, pouty-lipped lingerie models parading down a runway in angel wings. Yes, it is time for another Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show!
Join me and our Mind of Man columnist John DeVore tonight — Tuesday — at 10 p.m. EST for a liveblog of our nation’s most important thong-related cultural event, appearing on CBS. You can follow my every little jealous pang and DeVore’s every little boner via our Twitter handle (@TheFrisky), on our Facebook page, or right here on TheFrisky.com, after the jump.
Alessandra, Chanel, Adriana, Rosie and — duh — John DeVore will be there … will you? Keep reading »
Look! It’s models getting ready to walk in the Victoria’s Secret runway show! They call this “couture.” (Hm.) They are very excited about their fittings! The theme is “A Night of 1,000 Fantasies,” which is one way of saying, “Men across the country will be masturbating to this.” There are six sections that represent six types of women! What are they? I must know which one I am! They are Tough Love, Game On, Country Girls, Heavenly Bodies, Wild Things, and Pink. Which one am I?! Who knows. Adriana Lima says, “Zeriouzzly, dis iz deh beegest weeng eye evah hayd.” We concur! Only 20 more days until this thing airs. We can hardly stand the wait. Keep reading »
Surely, there is nothing that says “America” like the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. Every year, a posse of well-known (and some not so much) and drop-dead gorgeous women parade up and down a runway wearing underwear paired with totally strange costumes. It’s like Halloween threw up on Christmas and then someone threw a pair of underpants and a bra at the mess. If you like spectacle, you like this “fashion show.” Or if you like boobs. In any case, Modelina has some preview shots of what wackiness the girls will be flouncing about in this year. To me, this number looks like a pair of crystal harp wings. Which is great. Because I had been shopping for crystal harp wings on eBay, and now I know where I can get them. Thanks, Victoria’s Secret. [Modelina] Keep reading »
“All good things have to come to an end. I will always love Victoria’s Secret. It has been an absolutely amazing time.”
—Too-gorgeous-for-words Heidi Klum on stepping down from Victoria’s Secret after 13 years as an Angel. Don’t be too sad—you’ll still be able to catch Heidi on “Project Runway,” shilling her clothing line, and on hot husband Seal’s arm. [NY Post] Keep reading »
Hot on the heels of the recent Hollister bedbug infestation and cleansing, Victoria’s Secret on New York’s Lexington Avenue had a fun little infestation of its own. Apparently, bugs were found and the store was closed down for sniffing by bed bug-detecting dogs, a quick, intense chemical spray and, finally, another dog sniffing. The company claims that the issue was isolated to a small area of the store and has been completely neutralized, but the whole thing still leaves us feeling a little skeevy. Victoria’s Secret has committed to having all of its stores sniffed for bugs, though, which is more than most can say. Where do you think the vermin will hit next?

Rompers have become a must-have item for beating the sweltering summer heat. This cute and breezy Victoria’s Secret romper pulls double-duty: it works as a cover-up at the beach but is also festively chic for a BBQ at a friend’s house (just add a T-shirt and a little razzle-dazzle). It’s flattering for all body types, and the roomy fit means you can eat as much as you want without fear of a noticeable paunch.
Congratulations to Victoria’s Secret model Doutzen Kroes, one of my favorite models, who’s three months pregnant. Those Victoria’s Secret models don’t waste any time! The 25-year-old follows on the heels of Adriana Lima, Gisele Bundchen, Karolina Kurkova, and Heidi Klum, all of whom had babies last year, and Claudia Schiffer, who had a baby earlier this year.
So, who’s the father of Doutzen’s sure-to-be-beautiful baby? Keep reading »
Sure, it’s hypocritical and fat-phobic of ABC to air the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show starring Heidi Klum’s glorious ta-tas while also demanding “excessive re-edits” on this plus-size lingerie commercial from Lane Bryant. But what do we think of LandlineTV’s spoof on Victoria’s Secret: a faux-sexy commercial starring skeletons in a blond wig and lingerie (a spoof which a gleeful Lane Bryant posted on their Inside Curve blog!)? Is it a biting social commentary on body image standards or a tasteless joke, considering the culture of body-hating and eating disorders not only among models but all women? I personally am in the “biting social commentary” camp, but at least one blogger with an eating disorder, who I follow on Twitter, was vehement that lady-skeletons are not “appropriate.” Tell us what you think in the comments.

In case there was any doubt in your mind, Victoria’s Secret
Angel Adriana Lima is back from maternity leave. Sure, she walked in the Louis Vuitton show a few weeks ago, but that didn’t involve stripping on camera, so we remained skeptical. Color us creepy, but all we’ve got to say about this is MILF
