Victoria's Secret's Big Blockbuster

Tents are back in Bryant Park, but not for 7th on Sixth's Fashion Week this time. Victoria's Secret is taking over the park for tonight's much-hyped fashion show, which will be hosted by Rupert Everett, with performances by Mary J. Blige and Andrea Bocelli. The person in charge? Victoria's Secret exec Ed Razek, who has worked on the brand's runway shows for the past seven years, according to The New York Post. The first show was held at the Plaza in 1995, costing $1.5 million. "The first show was a PR triumph but not an aesthetic triumph," Razek told the tab. After two more years at the uptown hotel, he put on a show at 55 Wall Street, which was broadcast on the Web, but was overwhelmed by an enormous amount of viewers, giving the event even more publicity.
