Backstage at Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2014-2015

Fashion

Pink robes, hairspray and a whole lot of fun, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2014-2015 held in London this year was nothing short of glamorous. It was magnificent and the images appearing today have really not done the whole thing enough justice. With all the wings and toned bodies on stage it was interesting to know what backstage would look like and many fashion bloggers made it to the back to ask some questions and get the latest Angel gossip. Selfies have ruled the world these days, so it’s no wonder the VC models are joining the club and enriching Instagram, Twitter and Facebook with their gorgeous self-taken pictures that are nowhere near the quality of the professional photography available to the women. The makeup artists built on the models’ natural looks, with 30 of them working all day to create the perfect looks for the Angles that would walk 2 shows (VC loves to have two shows filmed so that every angle is clearly shown). From travel essentials to favourite makeup pieces, beauty splurges and saves, some models were all too keen to share their thoughts with the outside world. A little piece of Heaven has been handed to us and we should enjoy every last moment.

Here’s what we found out backstage at Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2014-2015:

• Karlie Kloss won’t leave the house without her Embryolisse moisturizer, L’Oreal BB cream, a flick of mascara, blush and lip balm apparently. That’s pretty sweet since the latest minimalistic looks include bolder mascara on a bare face that may be accented with a tinge of blush and light lip balm. A moisturizer sounds perfect as well as we’ll need to keep our skins hydrated throughout the winter. Looking trendy and gorgeous as always, this is certainly a look we can emulate easily.

• Karlie Kloss isn’t the only one who rocks a more bare-faced look. Joan Smalls has her own secret weapon when it comes to looking sultry and positively captivating as always without the help of heavy makeup. She owes this to her Estee lauder extreme waterproof mascara, keeping up with the latest trends and really making those gorgeous brown eyes of hers pop out. Joan Smalls looks stunning no matter how she appears to the public and her mostly bare face proves this to be true.

• Adriana Lima absolutely loves her natural oils that she uses to moisturize her skin, particularly when travelling. She recommends argan and coconut oil used all over to get that smooth soft texture to the skin. It’s a must-have during winter in the model’s eyes. We know how it feels to get dry skin so perhaps we should opt for the coconut oil as well. The only problem is that we can get clogged pores so probably best to keep off the face if we have acne problems.

• St Ives face scrubs are an absolute favourite for many but Alessandra Ambrosio certainly knows that the worst-kept secret at the drugstore is one of the best products to use, alongside her Neutrogena eye makeup remover of course. Just because these women are Angels doesn’t mean that they won’t be shopping at the same drugstores the average person loves to frequent. On the contrary, they probably know the whole of the pharmacy like the back of their hand.

• Weekly routines are common for models, who need to ensure they constantly rock a flawless skin. No one does it better than Angel Ming Xi, who enjoys daily hydrating face masks while going for a richer product in Shu Uemura to keep the face looking bright and healthy. This is done once a week. We may not have perfect skin, but we can certainly ensure we keep our skins constantly hydrated with either products or through drinking a great deal of water.

Backstage at Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2014-2015

• When you are a model, you find ways to save up money from time to time while also knowing you can splurge on items you truly love. This includes Behati Prinsloo’s excessive spending on Crème de la Mer eye cream while she keeps costs low with her Burt’s Bees lip balm we all end up getting at some point in our lives. As a woman, it really doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor. Sometimes, the greatest finds cost less than you could have imagined while some of the most necessary items that go well with the person you are and your needs are far above budget. You learn to make sacrifices and choose your priorities. Models are no different.

• There are three steps to Lily Donaldson’s hydration plan that keeps her skin perfectly flawless and ready to show of its clear radiance on the runway. She drinks a lot of water, tries to wear as little makeup as possible and uses special face cream to keep her hydrated. Dry skin never looks good so it’s important to take care to ensure there’s enough of a water balance in your body that will end up plumping up the cells nicely and keeping your skin clean and clear and under control.

Backstage at Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2014-2015

• The Angels need to feel the sexy vibe before they sashay onto stage and show off their taut, fit figures in skimpy gorgeous lingerie. In order to really get the feeling for the night ahead, they listen to some awesome tunes, particularly by the queen of music, the magnificent Beyoncé. Jourdan Dunn is one Angel who won’t go out on stage without a quick “7/11” song fix by the amazing artist. We sure know how she feels as pumping to music before any big event, particularly our favourites by uplifting artists, can make or break our performance.

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2014-2015

Fashion

We just experienced the amazingVictoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2014-2015 held last night at London’s Earl’s Court Exhibition Center and already the world is buzzing with news, clues and spectacular images that have left us reeling! To see so many tightly toned and breathtakingly gorgeous women appear half-naked on stage to strut their stuff before the world is enough to send anyone to Heaven, but when its Angels doing it, we know we’ve already died and found our way through the pearly gates.

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2014-2015

It seems 47 models with sculpted physiques have appeared on stage and sashayed down the catwalk with the steps of a graceful gazelle. There were 10 new faces while Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima, the 33-year old models, celebrated their 15th Victoria’s Secret show appearance. It took 25 make-up artists, 25 hair stylists and 9 manicurists to get the girls ready for the show to blow the night away.

The sexiest show on earth was opened up with Chicagoan Karlie Kloss and Namibia’s Behati Prinsloo coming out in the Gilded Angels category; Brazil’s Adriana Lima and Alessandro Ambrosio formed part of the Exotic Traveler display and Sweden’s Elsa Hosk and Canadian Grace Mahary took part in the University of Pink. There were 6 different themes: Gilded Angels, Exotic Traveller, Dream Girl, Fairy Tale, University of Pink, and Angel Ball.

As previously known and mentioned Tailor Swift performed for the second year in a row and took to the stage with Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande and Hozier. She wooed the crowds with her rendition of Style while Ariana Grande rocked the night with her energy and incredible dancers.

Some amazing things were seen last night and one of these were the 29 pairs of wings that were presented on the catwalk, while Karlie Kloss ensured she had the crowds going gaga with her 18k gold pair of wings that certainly wasn’t fluttering in the wind. Instead, it had made for a perfect feathered cape.

Candice Swanepoel looked equally as stunning in her pretty little bra and panties framed by huge gilded wings. The gladiator boots certainly added to the wonder and glamour of the piece.

Not all the Angel wings were the typical gilded style, not even in fluffy whites. We saw some looks like Lily Aldridge’s as well, where the wings looked like spikes in a futuristic Angel Armour design, encompassing the front of the bra as well.

And then we had styles like this where it appeared that a colony of fairies had invaded the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2014-2015 and stolen the spotlight. Those shoes, the gilded body art, the golden jewelry, golden bra and panties; the swirling designs certainly worked their wonder and brought out the elven goddesses and Devon Windsor was certainly among the mix.

The exotic world seems just as charming, perfectly captivating and somehow full of colors and feathers. We can live with that though as we love what Victoria’s Secret has to put together every year and are certainly not complaining so long as we get to see some gorgeous Angels sashaying down that catwalk.

Then the fairies took to the stage and we loved every last second of it. We watched them in bright pastel colors, with special wings and glittering designs. Those gladiator boots were cut into butterfly shapes, the garters hung loose and the skimpy lingerie finished off the looks. We know that our eyes were more glued onto the wings and overall designs than the bras and panties themselves.

The University of Pink of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2014-2015 had its own designs to flaunt, from bold prints to fluffy accessories, gilded backpacks to sporty looks. Those thigh-high strappy boots were not left too far behind either as we were treated to some PINK crop sweater over bodysuits, while others boasted WWE style fashion to rock Pink Nation.

Black wings became signature in the Angel Ball segment, wherein thigh-high boots were replaced with strappy heels and stocking instead, while lacy tails falling to the floors followed the Angels’ steps.

The most magnificent part of the entire Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2014-2015 was when the Fantasy Bra was worn out for the public to ooh and ah over. With both veteran models, Adriana Lima and Alessandro Ambrosio took to the stage in identically styled Pascal Mouawad $2 million per masterpiece Fantasy Bras, reminiscent of Amazon queens and over-the-top luxurious Arabian harems. Where we had originally expected one, we have been treated to two fantastic pieces, one in blue and the other in red, both with impeccably captivating embellishments and matching body chains. There were exactly 16,000 gems bringing the lingerie pieces to life, as well as jewelled body pieces made of 18-karat yellow gold. According to official sources, the pieces took 1380 hours to create and we were treated to these amazing lingerie designs only last night.

Violeta By Mango Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

Fashion

We’ve already seen the upcoming Mango spring/summer 2015 collection drenched in the chic ‘70s style, and it’s high time to discover what stunning styles and looks the popular Spanish retailer has prepared for all those curvy fashionisers. The Violeta by Mango spring/summer 2015 collection comes carrying the same romantic and bohemian seventies mood with a big emphasis on the simplicity and wearability of the clothes presented. This is a line that has it all for building up a functional and fashionable wardrobe from the scratch, and you can be sure of loving to wear these pieces many more seasons to come.

Violeta By Mango Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

The primary aspect of the new Violeta by Mango collection that we love so much is the abundance of soothing, relaxed and go-with-everything colors and really charming prints that promise to add so much interest to your casual looks. From those crisp whites and creams to the season’s hot blues and grays, as well as some subtle accents of pastel yellow, salmon and brown, all the most versatile and summer-ready hues have been included in this collection, which do look incredibly chic in combination with ethnic paisley patterns, bohemian florals and some abstract brushstroke prints. The laidback style infused with sporty chic accents is the next guarantee of this collection’s success.

Of the hottest summer 2015 fashion trends, the collection has really pretty offerings for the fashion-forward crowd, ranging from those versatile denim pieces (ones carrying those oh-so-stylish ripped vibes as well) and maxi dresses and skirts to relaxed sweatpants and jumpsuits ready to stun. Especially stunning are those loose white pants matched with a gray sweatshirt topped with a blush pink vest looking in such a perfect harmony with those white sneakers. Sporty chic is still hot this summer, trust us!

While those don-and-go maxi dresses, jeans, casual tops and denim vests and jackets are meant to embellish your day-to-day looks, there is also the perfect share for those, who work at the office or have some cocktail parties scheduled ahead. To this end, we love the combo of the knee-length brown leather skirt and the flowing shirt, matched with a pair of classic leather sandals. This is what a modern business lady might need to jazz up her office wardrobe! The printed shirtdress, the light yellow one or the white above-the-knee dress with a lovely lacing detail on the neck can be your go-to outfit ensembles for hitting a summer party.

The Violeta by Mango spring/summer 2015 collection proves that dressing your curves according to the latest tendencies and building up a style that emphasizes your best features while camouflaging small figure flaws can be so easy as long as we have all those stunning pieces available for us!

Best Spring 2015 Runway Beauty Trends To Copy

Fashion

It appears as if the spring 2015 beauty trends lie in bold attributes, courageous accents and natural styles that accentuate inner beauty. No need for a blow dryer when you can opt for real texture instead. You may want to fake a piercing or 2 or 3 or 10 however. Serious statement lips are definitely in as well as thick black Twiggy lashes. The look we are going for this spring is certainly not that of one who, has spent hours doing up her looks before a mirror, trying to reach perfection but instead one who is rebellious, wild and true to her inner self. Here are some spring/ summer 2015 runway beauty trendsthat we’ve noticed along the way!

Spring/ Summer 2015 Runway Beauty Trends

Powerful Pouty Lips

We’ve seen the bold colors in Carolina Herrera, Topshop Unique, Burberry Prorsum, Dolce & Gabbana, etc. We’ve noticed the bolder lipstick in varying hues, from deep reds to Barbie pinks, and we’ve noticed the rebellious nature of the hues. Strict lines instead of blurs at the edges of the lips have reappeared, while matte wine colors are certainly stars of the show. Lips are made to look fuller, poutier and certainly quite devilishly sexy. There is something rather dangerous about this look, reminding us of a femme fatale. You wouldn’t want to be messing with a woman with these lips.

Spring/ Summer 2015 Runway Beauty Trends: Bright Lips

Bling Brow Ring

It’s not your typical style and certainly not recommended to wear at the office, but faux brow rings seem to be all the rage, showing off a stitched rebellious figure in fashionable attire. It’s been seen that Thakoon, Rodarte, Prada and Miu Miu place a big emphasis on brows this season, and it’s enough to either have you love it or hate it. Your brows will be taking on new hues, new lines and sporting rings that may run all across. It’s not the most appealing look but with the right touch, it can be deemed worthy of consideration.

Spring/ Summer 2015 Runway Beauty Trends: Pearced Brows

Bright Liners

This is probably the most beautiful spring trend we can see, as it brings out the eyes, giving the face a fresh and lovely look. It’s been seen at Fendi and Dior and certainly worth copying over the next season. Now, you may not need to snip off leather pieces and apply to the eyes with safe adhesives like those on the runway, but you can certainly use pastel colored liners in thick strips. Satin laser-cut liner stickers have also been developed as smudge-proof alternatives to the bold look. Simply gorgeous!

High Shine

The really glossy look is rather spectacular really, though it’s something we have been avoiding like the plague for the last couple of years. It’s been seen at Thakoon, Emilio Pucci, Marni, Balmain, Prada, Kenzo, Missoni, etc. The glossed over look is certainly in the highlight of eye makeup, which means between your cheeks, lips and now the eyelids, you will be a shining star. Let your complexions glisten and feel the beauty of the naturally enhanced look.

Spring/ Summer 2015 Runway Beauty Trends: Shiny Skin

Going Natural

You’ve been reading about it everywhere these days, hearing it on every fashion newscast, and watching women parade about with nary a hint of makeup on their faces. Forget the makeup, their hair is as natural as it looks when you wake up in the morning, if not as the day you were born. Natural hues are in as much as the natural hairstyles, with long waves and the curls you were born with optimized to look as perfect in their messy state as possible. Shine, texture and character is what you should be placing your focus on and the less products and styling agents used, the better. Leave out the brushes and use your fingers to detangle hair instead. Simple concealer and a hint of highlighter and perhaps a slight mascara application will be perfect. It’s a look seen at nearly every show and one we are definitely copying with gusto.

Spring/ Summer 2015 Runway Beauty Trends: Natural Looks

Lots of Spots

You may be rather surprised that some shows like Adam Selman, Oscar de la Renta and Preen have opted for the freckled features, really focusing on the naturally gorgeous skin many women try to hide under a cake of concealer. Instead, it’s the reality of the skin that is not being celebrated, with faced dotted in mahogany and taupe colors. Even if you don’t have freckles, you can certainly create them at will then wash them off if you no longer wish to be sporting the look. It definitely makes life easy for us with clearer fair skin. Tap a freshly sharpened eyeliner pencil along the bridge of your nose or use a special freckle pencil to get a more realistic look.

Spring/ Summer 2015 Runway Beauty Trends: Freckled Skin

Pretty Hair Accessories

Designer add-on accessories for the hair are all the rage at Fendi, Valentino, Celine, Missoni, Lanvin and Dolce & Gabbana, among others. Laid-back hairstyles were given the necessary oomph with pieced that adorned the gorgeous locks of the models, from combs in buns to crocodile tails in ponytails, gilded tiaras for pretty ocean mermaid looks and barrettes for long tresses were all seen on the runway and we fell in love with most all of these items. The Valentino seashell tiara was probably the best out of all the designs seen.

Check out all the best Spring/ Summer 2015 Hair Accessory Trends!

Rocker Shags

We’ve already pointed out that the natural hairstyles are in, without any blow-dryers used to get the voluminous, sleek looks, but we haven’t yet mentioned that between Anna Sui, Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford and Saint Laurent, the rocker shaggy cuts are in and they look splendid. There’s something so mysteriously lovely about a girl, who feels confident enough to leave with her hair left to the winds to style. Distinctive fringes and messy curls are all the rage and if your natural style doesn’t allow for this look, you can always try a wig!

Spring/ Summer 2015 Runway Beauty Trends: Shaggy Hair

Mid-Century Modern

It’s been seen all around, particularly at Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, Narciso Rodriguez and Stella McCartney shows. It’s simple yet elegant and most certainly bringing a light complexion to the screen. We are faced with nude colors with non-glossy finishes, going for a ‘50s theme. Powder compacts, nude colored manicures, and others in such shades are all in. You might be seeing quite a bit of matte nude hues hitting the nail lacquer section soon though!
