VSFS 2007 Facts!

It's been a slow few days so I thought I'd give you all some interesting facts about this years Victoria's Secret Fashion Show!

For over 8 months, an international team of renowned designers and stylists worked to design and create the sexy runway looks worn by the 30 supermodels at the 2007 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

The show included 15 corsets, show pieces and accessories that were embellished with CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements and made exclusively for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show by Australian jewelry designer Jenny Manik Mercian and took over 6 months to make.

The lingerie, wings and scenery were embellished with more than 1 million CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements for the fashion show.

Parisian shoe designer Christian Louboutin made 75 pairs of custom designed shoes and boots especially for the show.

It required over 3 months and a team of 42 people to produce the 11 pairs of Angel wings that were designed by famed wingman Martin Izquierdo for this year's show.

The retractable snowflake wings worn by Supermodel Heidi Klum in the last section of the show was a first in that the beautiful snowflake expanded to 10 feet in width as she stepped out on to the runway.

Supermodel Karolina Kurkova's opening look featured a custom made outfit created by LeSage. This incredible creation was made of sequins and included a corset, jacket, boots and a headdress. Costing $20,000, it was the single most expensive outfit in the history of the fashion show.

Supermodel Selita Ebanks was also strutting down the runway in a high price tag herself. She modeled the Very Sexy Fantasy Set costing $4.5 million. This set was created exclusively for VS by famed international jeweler Mouawad.

For the first time ever, Victoria's Secret and Mouawad designed an entire set to go along with the Fantasy Bra and panty by adding a hair pin, garter and cuff. All pieces of the Fantasy gift set were encrusted with diamonds, emeralds, rubies and yellow sapphires taking over 880 hours to make.

This year's show included 2 feather trains and 1 cape that were all over 10 feet in length and took over 3 months to create. All of these masterpieces were made of rare feathers.
VS had to charter a DC-9 cargo plane and 63 foot line haul truck in order to ship the outfits, wings, shoes, makeup and wardrobe supplies from New York to Los Angeles for the show.

Twenty-five cartons of Very Sexy Makeup were shipped from New York to LA to be used on the models for the show.

Of course, the show would not be complete without shimmering, bronze, scented skin which is why the Victoria's Secret Bare Bronze Bronzing Booth was created exclusively for the show. Before hitting the runway, the Angels achieved their golden glow by using Bare Bronze Self-Tan Tint, Leg-Perfecting Spray Tint, Sexy Sparkle Shimmer Moisture Mist, Sexy Sparkle Body Oil and Body Powder.

It took 18 makeup artists, 15 hair stylists, 8 nail technicians, and 7 body bronzers to prep and a beautify the 30 models for the fashion show. Four massage therapists were also on hand to help the models unwind during their breaks.

Over 40 bottles of Victoria's Secret Sexy Sparkle Body Powder in Vanilla Gold was used to make the sexy bodies on the runway shimmer!

The most popular lipstick and lip gloss at the fashion show was undeniably Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Makeup Perfect Lipstick in VIP and Very Sexy Makeup Lip Gloss in Intimate. So popular that the models wore the shades for the rest of the evening.

The sexy vibe continued on into the evening as the after party began at the Renaissance Hotel. Alessandra Ambrosio, Selita Ebanks, Adriana Lima, Izabel Goulart and Miranda Kerr were all spotted busting a move on the dance floor.

A party is the only way to describe the atmosphere backstage where the all of the models danced away to the music while they waited their turn to walk the runway.

Approximately 73 gallons of Imperia Vodka were consumed at the after party!
