Victoria’s Secret Extravaganza Part 2

Posted on November 10, 2011

Second verse, same as the first, y’all. Hit it, drag queens!

We can’t tell if she’s supposed to be the Goddess of Bathrooms or the Patron Saint of Upskirts.

Oh, Grandma. You and your doilies and cameos and black satin panties. You always make Thanksgiving so interesting. We’re gonna miss you when you’re dead.

Wait. Let us guess. There’s a “U,” two “S’s” and a “Y” later on in the show, right?

For the guys out there who thought the velociraptors in Jurassic Park were kind of hot.

For the guys who get woodies during Shark Week.

The wings are too small this year. She doesn’t look like the winged stripper we know and expect from Victoria’s Secret. She just looks like some girl who dresses weird and has a big-ass bug on her back.


You’re DAMN RIGHT you’re INCREDIBLE, girl! Sell it with confidence, we say. Everyone should have a superhero cape that says “INCREDIBLE” on it, don’t you think? Very handy for job interviews. Now go join your compatriots in the Justice League of Thigh-Highs. The Legion of Boob is gathering their dark forces!

For the guys who shift uncomfortably in their seats when they watch nature documentaries about bats.

For the guys who think cheerleader outfits are too demure.

Mrs. Neptune? We don’t mean to alarm you but your tits and vagina seem to be dissolving.

Neptune’s ex-wife is mysteriously pleased at the sight.

For colorblind guys.

For pedophiles.

POW! LOVE IT! When gays take over the world, this is what our armed forces will look like!

Uh-oh. Neptune’s mistress just showed up. This is like an underwater version of The Women.

The proposed waitstaff uniforms for the soon-to-be-announced Chili’s and Hooter’s merger, tentatively named “Chili Hooters.”

That is one scary-looking demon stripper.

It’s Keychain Lass! Scourge of the Underworld!

And Lipstick Lady! Deliverer of Glossy Justice!

Watch out, Justice Leaguers! Venus de Flytrap is here and she’s gonna start cutting dicks off any second!

Not a fucking clue what we’re looking at here but the face in her stomach is freaking us out.

You pop that hip, honey! But your wings look like dog ears and your “dress” looks like it was made out of old “Star Wars” sheets.

“Colors are like, so confusing!”

      Sorry, I have to save the last half of this brilliance for later.  Laughing too hard.

        It’s not often that I actually laugh outloud at anything on the computer.  This is a total gutbuster!

    • Anonymous

      These laughingly have a lot in common with the Ms. Universe costumes in that you have no idea what they are supposed to represent.  What are they selling – thigh-high boots? wings? something called PINK?  Very confusing runway show.  (I need to go rest my eyes now after all these searing neon colors.)

      • Marissa M

        The PINK brand has always involved bright colors. The rest of the outfits make more sense when you watch the actual show in order. It’s confusing to look at with all of the photos scattered chronologically.

      “For pedophiles.” Seriously. Ew.

      • Mich

        even creepier when you think about the fact that pink is kind of the ‘junior’ line for younger girls.

    • Barbara Guttman

      Every year these things get less and less attractive.  Bringing Santino in as head designer for these shows was a poor move.

      • Megan

        Is he really one of the head designers? If so, that explains so much.

        • Barbara Guttman

          He’s not, but it’s the vibe I get from them.  Writing on the behind? Unflattering things sticking out of other things?  Bras that can’t really function as bras?

          I don’t know who these shows are directed to.  It’s not women, straight men or fashion-minded people.  Crafty Queens?  Harry Hobby?

          • E

            I remember reading somewhere that they had to tone it down after numerous complaints about nudity( been looking for a link but I can’t find it so I could be wrong!).. i think those weird trains are to cover the model’s  asses. I think after a certain year you can’t see their behinds anymore.  Shame really, those trains are hell to the fug.

      Venus de Flytrap totally looks like she’s wearing a cup.  Or maybe it really is a drag show and she didn’t tuck well.

      • Marissa M

        The costumes aren’t what they are going to sell, it’s outfits that are extensions of the lingerie they do sell, the same way they add gigantic wings to everything. I think it’s a great fun idea considering how popular superhero themes are the last couple years!

        • Mich

          i do think the superhero outfits were my favorite. they kind of translate well to lingerie

      These costumes are so awful and cheap looking, like the “sexy” adult costumes in those Halloween catalogs.

    • Anonymous

      When whoever came up with this show was pitching it, what did he or she say?  What did everyone else in the room say. 

      First, sparkly sea creatures. 


      And pseudo victorian stuff with spats. 


      Plus superheroes.  


      AND 1980s slumber parties!

      oh, now I get it.  Yes, that the theme!

      • Marissa M

        You must never have watched a VS show before. There’s different sections with different themes. And always PINK at the end.

    • Gail Kwak

      TLo said, “The proposed waitstaff uniforms for the soon-to-be-announced Chili’s and Hooter’s merger, tentatively named “Chili Hooters.”

      I’m going to beg to differ, darlings.  I think the merged Chili’s/Hooters would actually be called “Cooters.”

      I don’t know what’s tackier, this or the CMA awards outfits.

      I Whew, if you did not have a cheer for “POW! LOVE IT! ” I was gonna take my keyboard and go home. These are just waaaaaay to much fun.  When you have been doing wings for years, you gotta be desperate to find a new way to do them. because you have ben doing them for so long that if you don’t you will be horribly booed. Heck, I’m impressed, but I love camp.

    • Gaby Ripoll

      The Chili Hooters should clearly be named Charo’s.

      Wow. I mean . . . wow. I don’t recall WHEN I’ve seen a stranger collection of cray-cray on a single runway. Thank God T and Lo were able to develop the Neptune/Superwomen/winged/Victorian/Pedophilia storyline. Otherwise I would have been totally confused. Wow.

      The fact that you capped the whole hilarious Neptune series with the “underwater version of The Women” comment is what pushed me over the edge on this.  (Now I can’t get the image of Joan Crawford with gills out of my mind…)  Somehow you make sense out of this over-indulgent parade of lycra.    Here’s to you both!

      You know what?   I’m not sure WHAT straight men think of all this, but I’d really like some lesbians to weigh in, here.   They are uniquely qualified to express any kind of logic behind the show…So, Ladies who Love Ladies (They’re the Luckiest Ladies in the World), would you wear it or hit it?    My inquiring mind wants to know.

      • ladyjax

        Hello, as a Lady who Loves Ladies (the Luckiest Ladies in the World), I’d neither hit it or wear it.  The ladies here on display are too skinny for my liking and I instinctively distrust women who are pouty-lipped on purpose.  It’s just wrong on so many levels.  And wear it?  Well, if it was twenty years ago back when Victoria’s Secret actually carried items that weren’t so cookie cutter, I might have given it a shot but since I’ve never been all that small then my desire for this stuff is pretty muted.  Although at one time VS carried, ahem, underpinnings that actually fit people like me and I used to hit *that* regularly.

        I look at these precious toddlers in this fashion show and I just want to have them drink a milkshake or something.

          I loved VS’s high waisted, high cut leg undies. They were the only ones I wore!! No wedgies, ever!! Now, they don’t make them anymore, they are all cut down below the belly button and I hate them!!

          • ladyjax

            OMG, yes those hi-cut panties were beyond amazing!  No wedgies, cool colors and they lasted.  I used to roll into VS during the panty sale and after a brief moment of snotiness from the clerks (as in, “Why are you here, you cow?”), I’d whip out my money and say, “I’m here for the panties!  And guess what, they even fit me!  Ha!” 

            Okay, some of them weren’t that bad but a lot of them would throw major shade.  I was just there for the panties.  And I mourn the fact that they stopped making them.

      What makes this fall so flat for me is that so much of it looks so CHEAP. Not tacky cheap, just cheap halloween costume cheap.

      VS shows are always silly in one way or another, and I kind of enjoy that, but (unless I have on the rose-tinted spectacles of memory) most of the costumes used to look way more “finished” & luxuriously made.
