It was bound to happen eventually. She's been hush hush about her secret since breaking onto the scene in 1977, but last night Victoria finally came out. Of course we already knew Victoria's Secret was all about coquettish T&A, but who would have guessed the VS Angels were really showing off for...each other?
A backstage vignette from the hour-long broadcast runway show featured notable names on the model roster describing each other ("Lily is smokin' hot"). What's the one thing all the Angels agreed upon? That South African blondie Candice Swanepoel has a killer ass.
The let-your-lesbianic-flag-fly theme kicked off with Katy Perry's performance of "Firework," which made our gay survival song list last month for its coming out undertone. For the VS show, Katy rocked a purple sparkler-print costume with an exploding-jewel headpiece and shoulder jazz. Next to a runway-full of models in giant, ornate wings, she had to do something to stand out.
Amidst the many sweeping boob and crotch shots, the the farmland segment succeeded in setting our gay hearts aflutter. The gold glitter runway became shimmering waves of grain for the models to stomp through wearing gingham, straw and barnyard wings -- and bras and panties, of course. We couldn't help but notice a tip of the ol' halo to Chanel's provincial-themed Spring 2010 collection, which lined the runway with actual bales of hay. Victoria set her country vignette to Jewel's "What You Are," yet another song that preaches self-acceptance. From the music to plaid nighties to the killer asses, we don't doubt this year's VS show has our lesbian sisters screaming, "Yee-haw!"
