It was a moment of exquisite symmetry.
Irish singer Hozier, whose pop prayer “Take Me To Church” reached worldwide #1 status earlier in the day, crooned “Ah-ah-ah-ah-men” as statuesque supermodels marched past, soaking in the reverential applause. If the heavens ever did speak (to quote another lyric from TMTC), that was a hell of a statement.
Hozier’s performance during the Fairy Tale segment of the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, filmed in two installments today at London’s Earls Court, was just one of numerous glittering moments from the invitation-only show.
Also on the bill were Taylor Swift (above, with BFF Karlie Kloss), Ed Sheeran and Ariana Grande … not to mention a cast of 47 models from 21 countries.
Here’s a selection of some of our favorite moments from the show, which will be broadcast on Dec. 9 on CBS-TV.
