Oh it’s no problem at all, dear!
While I do think that too much focus is put on the performers, I’m well aware that it isn’t the performer’s fault. They don’t operate the cameras or block stage movement. They don’t sit in the editing room comparing shots and cutting them together. The female performers don’t even pick their own outfits. (Historically, Todd Thomas and the VS design team have created their outfits for them) All they do is show up and sing, just like they were hired to do.
People keep bashing Taylor when they should really be blaming the people at VS. If they didn’t want her up front and center with several close-ups and two performances and walking up and down the runway, it wouldn’t have made the show. That’s all I’ve got to say on the matter.
That actually annoyed a lot of people, so you definitely aren’t alone.
The Snow Angels segment had so much potential to be absolute perfection. The outfits and the model line-up was flawless, but I felt like Taylor Swift ruined the segment with her awkward movements, and interacting too much with the models, very much to the point where it took attention away from them. The song choice also didn’t work, but VS are obviously at fault for that because Taylor Swift just performed the song that she was asked to sing.
Just to give my two cents as well, some photos of the outfit board showed Taylor’s British Invasion dress in with all the model’s outfits. (I haven’t personally seen if her Snow Angels dress was also on the board or not.)
I don’t think she was trying to be an angel. The VS showrunners wanted her to “walk” so it was choreographed into the show. I don’t disagree at all that it took attention away from the models but I don’t think that’s Taylor’s fault. I would bet anything that she merely did as she was told to earn her paycheck.

I found a few gifs as well but I didn’t make them so I won’t repost them. If I get some time, I might make my own.
I don’t have any gifs but I do have some photos!
To be posted soon~
Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show ~ Full Show
*I’m waiting for a Parisian Nights segment to be uploaded. I’ll update this post once it’s up!
I thought that to. If you’re going to get a British girl group, wouldn’t you go for the one who people actually know?
I think probably because “Wings” is their most famous song and VS used it last year during the “Candice” segment? Maybe.
I agree completely! I’m smitten with Constance and I think Magda was a good choice to close the show even if a little part of me does wish an Angel would have closed.
And agreed about Cara’s Parisian Nights pose. It was just not good. Sorry to all the Cara lovers but it is only the truth! She looked much better in British Invasion. I haven’t decided if I love or hate her in the finale yet. I’ll keep you all posted once I make up my mind. ;)
This girl! I don’t know if I love it or hate it!
True! Last year Ale got a little mention about wearing the Fantasy Bra but nothing this year! I think maybe because it opened the show.
I did enjoy the segments they did this year though. They usually don’t talk to anyone who isn’t an official Angel but this year we got Cara talking in one segment and a whole discussion about Lais falling during rehearsals last year. I really liked that. And seeing her cry during fittings because she was excited about getting to open a segment was really special.
Lily doesn’t get enough love! She held the pre-show together and her walk has improved sooo much over the past few years! Her and Taylor Swift walking together was a great moment.
Thanks for sharing! :)
Mmm yes! Behati was looking amazing! And Doutzen of course was incredible! Red is definitely Adriana’s color. Nobody opens a segment like she can.
Thanks for sharing!
Oh my god, Cara in the finale walk. How is this girl real? And why did they put that in the final cut of the show?
