The annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was held for the first time in London on December 2, 2014. The super fit models gleefully strutted down the runway at the Earl's Court Exhibition Centre in front of an audience of 3,000 who were all dressed in black-tie attire for the event. History was truly made with this lingerie extravaganza because soon thereafter the exhibition centre was demolished. The event touched the hearts of many and will remain as a cherished Victoria's Secret runway show location forever.

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!
