As if the descent of the new angels such as Taylor Hill, Jasmine Tookes, Sara Sampaio, and many others wasn’t exciting enough, Victoria’s Secret knows well how to make an explosive runway show with its six show-stopping collections—Boho Psychedelic, Portrait Of An Angel, Exotic Butterflies, Ice Angels, Pink USA, and Fireworks.

The $2 Million Fantasy Bra worn by Lily Aldridge in the Fireworks segment was one of the main highlights in this year’s show. It has been said that it was adorned with over 6,500 different precious gems making the bra lit up and steal the scene during the finale.

Musical guests Ellie Goulding, TheWeeknd, and Selena Gomez have also captivated the audience with their own hits surrounding the runway. What is a fashion show without some killer music, right?

Let us not forget Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, besties for life, who made headlines when they made it to their first Victoria’s Secret runway show. Because of their immense popularity, Kendall and Gigi instantly grabbed the attention of the viewers. Both freshies in the VS runway have walked in two separate segments.

If you’re itching for some backstage deets, we’ve got some for you. According to creator of BLAWNDE.com and co-founder of Suja Juice, Annie Lawless shares that the models snack on healthy food as they prepare for the show and have a glam squad (20 hairstylists and 20 makeup artists on hand) help them look picture-perfect and runway-ready. But most of all, the Angels only have room for positive vibes backstage no matter the anxiousness. There wasn’t any “catty girl vibes” going on between them instead they were supportive and sweet to each other.
So, that’s a wrap! Now that the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion show has come to an end, I know we’re already excited of what’s in store in 2016.

Why Constantine is Worth Watching


With Constantine well into its run, it seems to be struggling to gain its footing. There are so many different types of supernatural based televisions shows, such as Sleepy Hollow, Lost Girl, and Supernatural, that it may be getting lost in the shuffle. It’s a real shame because the show has a chance change things up. So, here’s why Constantine is worth watching.

Constantine, the titular hero of the series, is a bit of a bastard. He has a dark past, that he knows he’s going to Hell for, and hates himself for it — but he owns up to it. He’s a selfish hero, in that he wouldn’t offer up his body or soul if it meant saving a life. Unlike Supernatural, where the brothers have each other, Constantine, on the other hand, is a loner. Although, he does have one friend; but everyone still else hates him. Constantine is consistently unchanging as a hero, he doesn’t make excuses for who he is and treats life, people, and all things under the sun as a chore. He’s got this whole, “I guess I have to help these people, but don’t ask me to enjoy myself or care” and “why do I even bother” thing down pat. It’s no wonder that pretty much everyone under the sun can’t stand him. Even the humans, demons, dark spirits and angels, who fight each other, can all agree on their hatred of Constantine. He’s rude, full of himself, and pisses everyone off. Everyone he’s ever called a friend is either dead, wants to kill him, or begs him to leave them alone. He deserves to be punched in the face, thrown across the room, and anything else he gets.

While many shows focus on people and helping others by fighting evil, Constantine fights the things that go bump in the night, because he’s there and he can. There’s no great purpose, no nobility to him, and that makes him very human which is a big bonus. Constantine doesn’t wrap things up with a pretty bow. People are left to die. Issues aren’t cleared up fully and life goes on. Grief, pain, and loneliness aren’t things that are fixed in an episode. Constantine may save lives and spot darkness, but that doesn’t mean he fixes things. Yeah, things may improve for those that he saves, but they aren’t the focus of what he does. He’s the teacher, not the student. He understands what’s going on  pretty quick and knows what he’s doing, most of the time. It’s a welcome change from watching a hero stumble about.

Oh, let’s not forgot one last thing. Constantine is based off of the DC comics. That means the series can highlight the normal supernatural side of the famed Comic universe. The series already did a nod to Dr. Fate. There are many creatures DC has hidden within its pages. This supernatural series is the perfect chances to flesh out some of the lesser known beings. There’s far more to DC than capes and tights. That’s why Constantine‘s worth watching.
