This year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show began filming 45 minutes late on Tuesday, Nov. 10, but when the show began it went off without a hitch. Unlike last year, which created one of the Internet’s most popular memes when Ariana Grande collided with model Elsa Hosk on the runway, the show ran smoothly. This year’s lavish show featured Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid walking the catwalk for the first time and featured performances by Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding and The Weeknd.
Supermodel Maria Borges broke barriers by walking the runway without the signature long, wavy locks worn by the other models. Borges instead wore her hair naturally curly and short, looking flawless and skipping the makeup chair fuss.
Also missing from this year’s fashion show was Angel staple Karlie Kloss, who is on hiatus from the modeling industry to study at New York University (NYU). Her best friend, Taylor Swift, also wasn’t available to take the catwalk as she is busy taking her “1989” tour international, traveling to Asia to perform.
Swift is still rocking her own catwalk on tour, even with a twisted ankle. The songstress has been dawning a new wardrobe for the Asian part of her tour including more sparkles and now an ankle brace. Known for her clumsiness, Swift is still rocking heels for her concert despite the pain.
Swift isn’t facing pain in her most recent lawsuit, though. R&B singer Jesse Graham filed a $42 million copyright suit against Swift over the line, “haters gonna hate, players gonna play” from her hit single “Shake it Off.” California District Court Judge Gail Standish dismissed the case using Swift’s own lyrics against Graham.
The conclusion included, “But, for now, we have got problems, and the Court is not sure Braham can solve them.”
As Swift continues to rock out, Gomez took her place in this year’s fashion show. Before the show, Gomez retracted her statement about not dating at the moment by hanging out with a NYU student on what appeared to be a very flirtatious night on Monday, Nov. 9. Maybe he’s a classmate with Kloss?
Gomez’s ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, was dealing with his own bad blood releasing his album, “Purpose,” on Friday, Nov. 13 — the same day as One Direction’s newest release “Made in the A.M.” The widely talked about album seems to be about his tumultuous relationship with Gomez that Bieber finally opened up about in Complex magazine.
“When stuff would happen, I would lose my freakin’ mind, and she would lose her mind, and we would fight so hard because we were so invested in each other,” Bieber told Complex.
As Bieber continues his healing process, his competition, One Direction, is focusing on taking a break. With the release of “Made in the A.M.,” the boy band begins their hiatus that will allegedly last two years. The boys are looking forward to enjoying the peace and quiet and focusing on themselves. You might have trouble keeping up with them, though, as they plan to travel a lot without the commitment of work keeping them from enjoying countries they’ve visited on tour. If you’re looking for Niall Horan, however, you should probably check your nearest soccer stadium as he admitted that he can’t wait to jump into watching every game again as he once did.
As I blast all my new favorite songs from One Direction before the hiatus sets in, I’ll be staring at Nick Jonas’ throwback Instagram post to remind myself of simpler times. The singer posted a hilarious pic of himself at 13-years-old, hanging out with Miley Cyrus. Complete with messy, curly hair and sweat stains, Jonas admitted that he had been trying to impress his first crush, Cyrus, that night — as my first crush, Jonas, still impresses me.
