You know something's wrong when even I can tell someone's really walking too casually. This is how I feel about victoria's secret fashion show 2018. It's such an awful disapointment. I had some expectations for it despite reports of its low watching rate and rumors of its poorer walkings and outfits. I generally do not have that high standards for models. I fell for VS in senior high when everyone's saying angels like Candice and Behati are not as good as the old ones such as Lima and Gisele and shows in 2012 are not so good as the old shows such as those of 2009. However, I love the shows of 2011 more than that of 2009. Although I can tell the difference of Gisele's walk and Candice's walk, I think Candice's is good enough to win my heart. I think it's more because of the requirement and the style of the show are more vibrant rather than high end so the angels are different. That's why I didn't take other people's comments of these new angels seriously. I think they just prefer the older and high end style rather than the vibrant ones. However, this show, is too casual even in my standard. I loved those angels before, for example Taylor, especially Taylor. She's the most beautiful angel in my view and I like her according to her photos and youtube videos. However, what is she doing on the stage? She's opening the show with "This is me" as the background music! I was hoping to be amazed and like "wow" when I saw her coming out, but no, she's walking as if she's just hanging with friends on the street. She even has some very casual gestures like nervously and happily covering her mouth or something like that. This never happens to Candice or Miranda, even though they may also be smiling and waving to the audience, their moves are delicated, mature and well designed. Their moves belong to the stage. All these new angels, on the other hand, are behaving as if they are making their own vlog on instagram. The only angel who's walking fine in my standard this year is Candice. Marthat and Elsa are also good but not very outstanding.
I don't know if this is VS' plan to change their style this way. It's understandable if they're trying to make their angels more like daily girls in life so they can have more interactions with their customers and fans. I can only say this is not what I want, and, according to what I hear about from people who also enjoyed their show in the past years, not what many fans want. I like angels like Candice, Lindsey, Doutzen and Miranda who walk not so "queen style" as Gisele did, but still I want VS fashion show to be a fashion show with glamor, not just a party with beautiful young girls making "dramatic" happy scenes.
