So maybe this is why I decided to start blogging again:
The 2009 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was staged on Thursday, November 19, in New York, and even though the show was missing Gisele Bündchen for the third year in a row (I still miss her; she is one of the very very few who can still bring that supermodel vibe to the runway), Eugenia Volodina, Natasha Poly, Adriana Lima and Karolina Kurková, the latter two of whom had just given birth, I can’t wait to watch it when it airs on December 1 on CBS (not that ASTRO carries CBS; I’m just waiting to download it). The pictures from this year’s show promise its usual glamor, jewelry and underwear that nobody in their right mind would ever dream to don. And, as usual, it’s the one night a year when women of every size feels mortifyingly bad about themselves, and the one night men forget everything that has to do with sports, cars and wrestling.
Fortunately, a few of my favorite supermodels are still walking the runway of this show:
Still my personal favorite
Ana Beatriz Barros
You would never have known she’d just given birth to her fourth child a mere five weeks before the show if it hadn’t been shouted about by every news medium on the planet
