The annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show for 2018 returned to New York City! Goddess Adriana Lima started her VS Runway career in this fabulous city and also decided to end her career here as well. She retired gracefully during this annual procession. We will truly miss her! Change is truly in the air and I still remain a fan of this brand that I have followed for so many years.

VSFS 2012: Erin Heatherton (Calendar Girls)

VSFS 2012: Erin Heatherton (Calendar Girls)

There have been many Victoria's Secret Fashion Show "lost a shoe" moments but I believe this is the first Victoria's Secret Fashion Show "lost a hat" moment. Poor Erin Heatherton ... she has not opened very many VSFS segments and to open the Calendar Girls segment without her cute little hat to complete the look of her lingerie costume is simply disheartening. Especially when the stage backdrop displayed a drawing of her complete lingerie costume WITH the adorable hat representing the month of January while she walked out on the runway.

Not only did I think that there were too many "lost a shoe" moments in previous VS fashion shows, but apparently Victoria's Secret thought so as well. For 2012, they went above and beyond by hiring the well-respected shoe fashion designer Nicholas Kirkwood to create the shoes for the lovely models to wear to coordinate with the theme of each lingerie costume. Nicholas Kirkwood surely rose to the occasion and the shoes were not only fabulous in design but were perfect as far as ease of wear and functionality. No shoe mishaps for 2012.

Seems as if so much attention was paid on correcting what has been the show's weakest moments that not enough attention was paid on making sure that the hats fit securely as well.

Not sure if Erin could hide her disappointment as she hesitated to even enter the stage. Oh well ... the show must go on! And it did!
