The 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

If you’re a twenty-something college girl with a wardrobe consisting of PINK pj’s and sparkly accessories, there is nothing more magical than that time in December when the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs.

This year in particular is especially enchanting because not only is the showing taking place during finals week (offering some relief to us college gals), but the one and only Taylor Swift will be performing.

Unless you’ve been living under a Twitter-less rock, you’ve probably at least heard of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, because it is the only subject that will be all over your newsfeed the evening of Tuesday Dec. 10.

Every year, the television following gets bigger and better, more angels get their wings, and the musical guests attempt to outdo their predecessors.

Girls and guys alike watch the show either admiring the models and the lavish costumes or ripping the entire concept to shreds. Either way, you can expect that they’ll be watching, and they’ll be tweeting.

Every year, one special model is chosen to wear the “fantasy” bra. Last year, it was Alessandra Ambrosio wearing the Floral Fantasy Bra, ticketed at $2.5 million. This year, the 5’9’’ blonde-haired blue-eyed beauty, Candice Swanpoel, will be wearing the Royal Fantasy Bra valued at $10 million. Heidi Klum has been selected to wear the fantasy bra three times in the past 18 years.

Having performances at the fashion show really just began in 2001 and has only gotten more extreme ever since.  In 2012, Maroon5, Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Nicki Minaj took the stage. Last year, it was Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars who captivated the audience. This year we can expect to be wow’ed by Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy, Neon Jungle, and A Great Big World.

Whether your favorite part is getting a sneak peak at all of the Victoria’s Secret merchandise, gawking at the beautiful models, or enjoying the musical performances- the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is not one you will want to miss.

Take this opportunity to host the ultimate girls’ night in, and remember, if there’s one thing you should admire about a Victoria’s Secret model, it’s her confidence.
