Victoria's Secret brought its annual fashion show back to the 69th Regiment Armory on November 19, after a four-year hiatus from New York that saw the spectacle make stops in Los Angeles and Miami. CBS aired the extravagant runway show, which featured a performance by the Black Eyed Peas and the traditionally elaborate sets, Tuesday night.
Produced by Done and Dusted and directed by Hamish Hamilton, the show saw models such as Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, and host Heidi Klum traverse a V-shaped runway. A theme of “romantic travel” tied the different sets together. Five vignettes in all—called All Aboard, Enchanted Forest, Pink Planet, Romantic Journey, and Star Trooper—were included in the hour-long broadcast.
This year also marked a first for Victoria's Secret. An open casting call for the brand's newest runway model saw events in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York throughout October, and winner Kylie Bisutti got to strut before the crowd of more than 1,000 as part of her prize.
