VSFS 2011: Chanel Iman (Club PINK! Segment)

For the 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, Chanel Iman looked so happy and at ease on the runway. She always seems so bright and upbeat during her walk for the VS Pink segments. This year for the Pink Segment she wore such an adorable outfit - a chipper bumblebee adorned with the most suitable young and playful neon light wings! The girly tutu made her look like the cutest ballerina but with a teen punk edge with the detailing of stylish accessories such as leather fingerless gloves and super bright neon wedge heels. And her hair never looked better. Love the two-tone hair blend on her with the soft layers.

Chanel Iman, once again, doing her "thang" on the VS Runway. First she appeared in the opening segment and then she walked again in the final segment which is the VS Pink Segment similar to the final VS Pink Segment of last year with Katy Perry. This year VS Pink rocked it out with Nicki Minaj! I loved seeing Chanel Iman bursting with sheer joy as she walked down the runway singing along to the music like she was at her favorite concert appropriately dressed like a teen punk ballerina. Happy, happy ... joy, JOY!

.:boy, u got my heartbeat running away:.

Lovecat Magazine, Issue #1: Chanel Iman

Issue #1 Summer of Sex
Lovecat Magazine (Fanzine)
June 13 2011

~~~>A fanzine is a nonprofessional and nonofficial publication produced by fans of a particular cultural phenomenon (such as a literary or musical genre) for the pleasure of others who share their interest. The term was coined in an October 1940 science fiction fanzine by Russ Chauvenet and first popularized within science fiction fandom, from whom it was adopted by others.

Typically, publishers, editors and contributors of articles or illustrations to fanzines receive no financial compensation. Fanzines are traditionally circulated free of charge, or for a nominal cost to defray postage or production expenses. Copies are often offered in exchange for similar publications, or for contributions of art, articles, or letters of comment, which are then published.

A few fanzines have evolved into professional publications (sometimes known as "prozines"), and many professional writers were first published in fanzines; some continue to contribute to them after establishing a professional reputation. The term fanzine is sometimes confused with "fan magazine", but the latter term most often refers to commercially-produced publications for (rather than by) fans.<~~~ [Source: Wikipedia]

.:u make me wanna get up & SCREAM!:.

Even though the term "fanzine" is a new term for me, the term and concept has been around for many decades. The fanzine Lovecat Magazine puts together in such an alluring way a great mix of popular fashion models, trendy fashion, hot music and then interlaces it with cool art and great editorial writing using some of the best photographers in the industry.

The very first issue hit the streets Summer 2011 on June 13th and made a true mark in the fashion world. The feature with Chanel Iman just left me in total awe simply because they captured the sexy side of Chanel Iman in a way that many other publications have failed to do. Her sexy pose in those fabulous must-have Christian Louboutin heels just leaves one wanting to treasure this 1st issue because it is obviously a collector's item! And with the accompaning video entitled "Grown Men Cry," by filmmaker Jenna Elizabeth, we get to watch her body movements behind the scenes of the photoshoot ... catlike gestures ... confident sex appeal ... and the kinky way in which she licks the guitar she is posing with. Just H O T!

On the cover of this first issue is Paz de la Huerta photographed by the famous photographer Ellen Von Unwerth. Featured inside, surprisingly, is the adorable Canadian model Andi Muise as well as other high profile models such as Kate Moss, Linda V., Jessica Gomes, Nicole Trunfio and Jarah Mariano.

VSFS 2011 "Put a Spell on You" Segment: Emanuela de Paula

The "Put a Spell on You" Segment of the 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion show is the best 2011 segment. I may feel this way because it is the only segment in which Brazilian goddess Emanuela de Paula walks in. It may also be because my favorite model in the whole wide world finally got a chance to strut down that VS runway with some WINGS! Not the best wings in the world but nonetheless WINGS! Every girl's fantasy I suppose and I am sure that Emanuela was especially enthusiastic about wearing Victoria's Secret wings this year. She also walked in the 2010 and 2008 Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows where she had some very nice outfits and some very nice "spotlight" moments but this is her first time on the Victoria's Secret Runway with a pair of wings. Yes, finally and truly deserved after how she got so many people buzzing about her outstanding runway moment last year that just left you wanting to see more of her.

Victoria's Secret is Now in Puerto Rico!

Landing in Puerto Rico in a custom Victoria's Secret pink helicopter, Adriana Lima, Erin Heatherton and Alessandra Ambrosio made for quite a grand store opening arrival. On November 16th, 2011, just a week after the taping of the 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show but before the televised airing on the 29th, these lovely ladies landed in Puerto Rico to be a part of the opening of the first Victoria's Secret store in the Caribbean. Great excitement because of the timing and Adriana Lima was looking particularly sexy as she appeared to be in tip-top shape and in great spirits!

Once again it is Adriana Lima for Victoria's Secret's Holiday Lingerie Collection. There is something magical about all of the VS Christmas Collections featuring Adriana Lima in sexy red. And yes, in 2011 just like in years prior, Adriana Lima is center stage in all of the print and television marketing for Victoria's Secret this Christmas Season. No complaints here. Love the most current VS Very Sexy Seduction™ commercial highlighting Adriana Lima. Great look for the holidays!
