Selena Gomez slams haters after Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show performance

9 Dec 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

All-American girls! Selena Gomez puts on patriotic display with newly crowned VS Angel Taylor Hill… as she hits back after being accused of lip-syncing.

And the 23-year-old certainly looked the part as she donned a slinky plunging dress to perform two of her songs; Hands To Myself and Me And My Girls during the extravaganza which aired on Tuesday night. ‘It was so awesome and honoring to wear the American flag and be the face of PINK USA and be with Selena Gomez, I was like, “too many things happening all at once!” I couldn’t take it in and it was very fun and very cool,’ ‘She came up to me and she was like, “I have an idea.

At the end you’re both coming out and you’re coming with me, so let’s do a little dance move,” and we rehearsed a little dance,’ If eagle-eyed viewers noticed something strikingly different about the star, it’s because she was wearing green contact lenses and accentuated the look with smokey eye make-up and lots of bronzer. In a world where objectifying women is increasingly frowned upon, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show stands a strutting, pouting exception to the rule—an annual parade of pneumatic babes in lingerie. During the show veteran VS models such as Lily Aldridge and Alessandra Ambrosio were be joined by other newly crowned angels including Martha Hunt and Elsa Hosk.

Indeed, the show’s budget has been estimated at $12 million in recent years, which covers the high-profile entertainment acts that make it more like the superbowl than a fashion show. Model Behati Prinsloo opened the show for the second year in a row, wearing thigh-high suede boots and a paisley, jeweled bodice with fringed velour sleeves. Bras, panties, and bikinis were accessorized with long capes in psychedelic prints and leather wings, which morphed into butterfly wings as Adriana Lima, a 34-year-old veteran Angel, modeled the first in the next series of looks. Other veterans included Alessandra Ambrosio, also 34, and 30-year-old Lily Aldridge, who wore the $2 million Fireworks Fantasy Bra—embellished with more than 6,500 precious stones—in the final leg of the show. These reality TV-like moments, along with footage of the models preening and taking selfies backstage, fill the remaining 45 minutes or so when the girls aren’t actually on the runway.

While traditional fashion models look sullen, fierce, predatory, and generally miserable on the catwalk, the Angels look like cheerleaders: gleeful, energetic, and eager to please. Every year, the show ends with the Angels prancing around together and embracing on stage amidst a confetti storm, evoking Old Navy commercials and middle-school girls at sleepovers.

As woman who happily objectifies women from time to time, I watched the broadcast hoping there would be more opportunities for gawping, and hoping it would be sexier (and remembering that it was sexier in past years). If this is objectification, it’s of the most anodyne kind—a bouncy celebration of sisterhood, rather than prettified female flesh served up for the laziest male and female gaze.
