Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, AKA CBS' "Naked News"
Thank you, Les Moonves. (image via mdn.mainishi.msn)
While calmer heads in the blogosphere are questioning whether or not the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is, indeed, actually an act of fashion, we don't look a gift horse in the mouth. If Senior Moonves wants to barrage our already fevered senses with a staggering display salacious hott chicks in skimpy undergaments well, then: laissez les bon temps rouler!
If you go in for that sort of thing (And, we most assuredly do, dear reader; we do)
According to ABCNews (via Reuters):
"The show was filmed for broadcast December 6 on CBS television, which carried the event for two years before the hiatus and drew only modest viewership.
"Wednesday's event was held at the New York State Armory in Manhattan, the streets surrounding the building were packed with long lines of hopeful fans, some of whom were turned away."

"The standing-room only crowd eyed celebrity supermodels including Gisele Bundchen, Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum � making her first appearance after giving birth � decked out in the latest over-the-top Victoria's Secret designs.
"... The models pranced down the runway in holiday-themed lingerie that an R-rated elf might wear, such as a tiny Santa skirt with feather trim, fur-trimmed stiletto boots. Other items included a feather plume bustle, an embroidered bra and a fishnet thong with Swarovski crystals.
"Unlike a typical runway show where models wear stony pouts, the models walking the runway were smiling and lip-syncing to the music. They closed the show by lining up at the top of the runway, dancing and embracing one another."
