I’m not sure there’s been a better video featuring gorgeous models lip syncing to a pop song since George Michael’s ”Freedom” music video a couple of decades ago. In an effort to remind us that The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is set to air a week from today, and that Taylor Swift is on board to perform, CBS released the above music video, which begins with one of the Victoria’s Secret Angels talking about flashing back to the big show. Clad in designer undies and a set of wings, she leaves her clothes in a rumpled mess on the runway and wanders away. That leads into the video that features the VS Angels lip-syncing to Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble.” Everyone is gorgeous and mostly dressed, but there’s another glimpse of an angel near the end.
The above video is one of a few promotions CBS posted online today, promoting the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which has become one of the more beloved non-holiday-themed Holiday season events in pop culture over the years. This year, it’s set to air Tuesday, December 10 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
Another one shows performer Taylor Swift talking about her decision to perform at the event, which she says stems from being friends with Victoria’s Secret Angel Lily Aldridge:
Seven-time GRAMMY® Award-winning artist Taylor Swift, GRAMMY® Award-nominated artist Fall Out Boy, A Great Big World and Neon Jungle will perform on THE VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW, to be broadcastTuesday, Dec. 10 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. This year's fashion show will include world-famous Victoria’s Secret Angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Candice Swanepoel, Lindsay Ellingson, Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes, Behati Prinsloo and many more. The lingerie runway show will also include pink carpet interviews, model profiles and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the world's most celebrated fashion show.
As the above description indicates, in addition to Swift, this year’s VS Fashion Show will also include performances by Fall Out Boy, A Great Big World and Neon Jungle. And then, of course, there are the Angels. For those of you who don’t want to wait to see beautiful models in high-priced underwear, check out the gallery below. You’ll also catch a couple of glimpses of Swift performing.
