Victoria's Secrets and her Unmissable Double Ta...Bras

As mentioned earlier in the year, our little town with a pond played host city to the 2014 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show last night; where musical guests Ariana Grande got smacked by a wing (stop smiling...ok, stop making it so OBVIOUS then), Taylor Swift auditioned (and failed - someone will call her back about that...eventually), Ed Sheeran got REALLY happy (rumour has it he woke up blonde instead of with one), and Hozier was first mistaken for a maintenance official (yes, I mean cleaner), before helping those gorgeous gams keep time on stage. 

Two ladies to whom a girl can only aspire, Adriana (if I inject myself with her DNA will I be a clone of her) Lima, and Alessandra (even her name mean tall drink of the Gods) Ambrosio flaunted their baubles and gave most...(ok, all) men two million reasons to forget what those bras encased, and...well...oh heck, I'll just shut up and show you the highlights video:

And there you have it - how we throw celebrity parties - London style.

Until the next...Enjoy!
