Forget about Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Forget about Christmas, for that matter.
Tomorrow is the happiest day of the year for fashionistas everywhere. Only one more sleep …
There, I said it.
The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (Tuesday, 10 p.m., CBS) may be a shamelessly corny infomercial, awkwardly staged and transparently superficial, but we don’t care. For one day a year, we absolutely adore VS and its often-bland representation of American sexuality and fashion.
It’s like a Vegas chorus line in your living room, and quite simply the most fun you’ll have watching TV all year — ogling those thoroughbreds, snarking about the outfits, lip-synching along with the pop stars, laughing at the goofy voice-overs and just plain gasping at the sheer extravagance of it all.
Tomorrow, we’ll have a special Viewer’s Guide to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show to help get you primed and pumped.
In the meantime, enjoy these backstage images shot by VS’s superb go-to photographer, Russell James.
