The show’s executive producer told The New York Times that Mr. Biden’s appearance was taped under strict secrecy. The show was warned that provisions might have to be made to give Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan a similar cameo if word of Mr. Biden’s participation leaked out before Tuesday’s election.
Rihanna rocked in lingerie at Wednesday night’s Victoria's Secret fashion show in New York, providing the highlight of the live-music soundtrack and holding her own on the catwalk with some of the world’s top models.
Still, wearing a sheer pink mini that gave glimpses of her bra, Rihanna sang “Fresh Out the Runway” at the end of the corset-and-garter parade and she was the one to grab the audience’s biggest applause.
The fashion show has become a preholiday-season tradition for the retailer. CBS will turn it into a one-hour special, also featuring performances from Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars, to be shown on Dec. 4.
This year’s event had a slight twist. It started with an announcer noting that Victoria's Secret and CBS each had made a donation to Superstorm Sandy relief efforts, and a thank you to the National Guard members based out of the Lexington Avenue Armory that has for years been home to the show.
Mostly, though, models are encouraged to smile, ham it up and show off the extra time at the gym that most admit undergoing in the weeks beforehand. “It’s highly televised, and you take that into consideration,” said model Joan Smalls ahead of the show. “This is kind of not the same as other runways. You have to prepare your body: No. 1 is the wings are heavy, and No. 2 is you have to be comfortable with your body because the camera will pick up on it if you’re not comfortable and confident.”
Mr. Lambert will host and perform at the Dec. 16 event. Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland, Jordin Sparks and Ciara also will hit the stage at the special honoring dance music and its current and classic divas.
Tributes to the late Whitney Houston and Donna Summer also are planned.View Entire Story
