1. The Name Victoria
The Victoria in Victoria’s Secret refers to none other than Queen Victoria, that old and conservative matriarch of England. But the question is why her name and not that of anyone else. Well, it seems that the lingerie company takes its inspiration from her boudoir clothes. The secretive element remains a secret itself so you will have to make do with what little info you have.
2. The Cost Factor
This time around the sheer cost value of the two Fantasy Bras that Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio wore were an estimated $2 million which is indeed a lot in monetary terms. The jewelry which consisted of rubies and sapphires made the bras look super-sexy on the two svelte models.
3. Big Ca$h
A single show will make Victoria’s Secret execs lose approximately 10 million pounds. Some of the props and lighting not to mention the ornate costumes will automatically cost so much that the big bosses that stay in the shadows will have to shell out big bucks when it comes to the show. It does not happen for free since nothing in this world is free, not even air since if it is polluted it costs you.
4. Profits Pulled In
And yet the huge revenues that arise from the show more than make up for the costs. It is estimated that over $4 billion end up going into the pockets of organizers and models not to mention the administration. Now that is indeed a humongous amount of cash that is worth every penny since it took hard work raking in all that legal tender.
5. Model Behavior
Most of the supermodels that work for Victoria’ Secret are super-fit. Not even the slightest slack is given regarding any sort of paunch showing or signs of fat. That may be in fact be one reason Cara Delevingne was not present at the event. She had put on some extra weight and now VS would not have her on board its show.
6. Lima’s Liquid Lack
Besides getting into tip top shape for the show via hard workouts and stringent dietary standards, Adriana Lima, who is the topmost Angel, puts a lid on drinking water. Yup! For a full day before the show she refuses to even touch or look at any water. This causes dehydration and so she loses those last few pounds which lend perfection to her already more than perfect physique.
7. Old is Gold
VS really respects ad honors its oldest members provided they know how to maintain their lean physiques. Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio have been with the brand for more than a dozen years or so. And they work damn hard to keep fit and fabulous. That is why the firm keeps them in such high regard as role models and the main two faces and figures of the lingerie wear house.
8. Celeb Ban
While such people as Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande are so famous that they are always welcome to the show, other lesser VIPs are often turned down by the show execs. It is a matter of principle since if every Tom, Dick and Harry were allowed to sneak on board ship, the result would be chaos. It is better to keep it exclusive even if that attitude were to lead to a sort of terrorism.
The 10 million pound bra worn by Gisele Bundchen was possibly the costliest object of desire showcased by VS way back at the turn of the millennium. By the way, it looked absolutely beautiful on her. She shone in the bra and posed for cameras with style and panache. The brand is indeed the very living fantasy of so many men who would die for a date with one of its supermodels. They would even do anything to just get one of its costlier bras for their wives who would be transformed automatically into fantasy figures from an Arabian Nights show.
10. No Rest for the Wicked
