VS 2009: Extravganza And Beyond.

Tron-like dancers…wraparound projections of trains and ocean liners…a pink wonderland of cotton candy and candy cane and an enchanted forest featuring slow motion leaves falling..The VS 2009 extravaganza did not stint on spectacle and that was before the first model even hit the runway. Of course MDC’s Betty Sze was in the midst of the backstage frenzy capturing those close-up moments with all your favorite beauties. Feast your eye on this cornucopia.

  1. i am SOOOO Happy Lyndsey Scott is in this i have Known her for a while now she is such a Sweet Girl and Shuts it DOWN when she models Best you you Homie !!!!

  2. god Isabeli without make-up is more beautiful than some of them with it!

    my big thanks to BETTY for posting these backstage shots, because other sites basically showed only the angels and not the other girls :(

  3. VS always helps define what is beautiful and what is sexy, with all the major angles being joined by new faces. We are especially happy to see them welcome a new generation of beauties like Dorothea and Lynsday!

  4. i keep looking at the pictures of Ana Beatriz, Maryna, Isabeli and Selita and OMFG how gorgeous these girls are! im breathless, knocked down by their flawless beauty! Id give away a kidney to watch the show live lol

  5. this is the way models should look, pretty, healthy, happy, and glowing. i think there is room for edgy editorial, but my heart will always be with these gorgeous women – like LIsa Taylor was in the 70s, Brook SHields in the 80s, and Christy Turlington in the 90s. Just a beauty that isn’t snarky or tongue in cheek…that appeals to man and woman.

  6. wow, im speechless hehehe,impress by the beauty of every girl but mainly:ana jagodzinska,candice,anja,behati,erin,caroline trent,and ofcourse the gorgeous aminata.i was esceptic about chanel, but now when i ve seen some pics i think she look beautiful,maryna l is amazing!

  7. FASTER KILL PUSSYCAT!!! INDEED!!!….and I now know who the VS contest winners are from watching the original 10 start out on YouTube LOL. Moving VS back to New York (where the show belongs best) got them to use more high fashion models (I LOVE THAT ANJA RUBIK IS IN THE SHOW!!!)…but I REALLY hope they phase out the “gimmicky runway walk”…you know, the pointing, the flapping of the arms to psych up the audience, the blowing kisses…but I have seen select clips on YouTube and they used a rowdy audience standing right by the stage…FAIL ON VS!!! 2005 was STILL my favorite and the best…it has gone downhill from that year :(

  8. What happenened to Trentini?? She’s been looking different for the last few months (thought it was the haircut but it’s her face), not bad, just different, like her chin looks bigger or something. Weird.

    Loving Doutzen, Izabel and Maryna.

  9. where is emanuela??? she’s not in the show? isnt she one of the newest angel?? WHERE IS SHE?!??!?!

  10. WOW ANJA?????? VS? HAHAHAHA YEAH MAN THIS IS AWESOME.

    IS THIS HER FIRST?

    DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THESE GIRLS ARE DOING THEIR VIRGIN VS SHOW?
    -LYNSEY SCOTT (LOVE HERRRR)
    -ANNA JAGODZ (SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE’S SO NOT HER IN THE PHOTO)
    -ENIKO
    -MARYNA
    -AMINATA
    -DOROTHEA BATH (ISN’T SHE STILL A TEEN?????)

  11. HAHAHAHA IF YOU SEE THE PHOTOS, IT LOOKS LIKE THE VS CONTEST WINNERS ARE JUST CHILLING TOGETHER HANGING AROUND EACH OTHER WHILE THE OTHER VETERANS HANG AROUND EACH OTHER. HAHA. BUT THE NEW GIRL ON THE LEFT (CONTEST WINNER) IS GORGEOUS!!!!!! AMAZONIAN LOOKS!

    AND MARYNA IS WORKING IT EVEN FOR THE BACKSTAGE CAM LOVE HERRRR…. <3

  12. For me, the best thing about this cast is that Tatiana Kovylina is back. She was one of the best things about the 05 show to me.

  13. VIVA BRAZIL WHIT; ISABELI FONTANA, CAROL TRETINI, ISABEL GOULART, ANA BEATRIZ BARROS AND ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO. THE BEST MODELS OF THE WORLD. BRAZIL, BRAZIL, BRAZIL!

  14. DEPOIS DA SAÍDA DE GISELE DA VICTORIA SECRET O DESFILE FICOU SEM GRAÇA. ELA DÁ VIDA A QUALQUER DESFILE. ELA É RADIANTE E PASSA LUZ PARA AS DEMAIS MODELOS. O EVENTO FICA SUPER VALORIZADO COM A SUA PARTICIPAÇÃO. QUEM TEVE PREJUÍZO COM ISSO FOI SIMPLESMENTE A VICTORIA SECRET.

  15. candice’s hair should either be lighter or darker to frame her face better =]

  16. love the pictures betty! i love lyndsey, she’s so cute. but i’m really kind of…shocked by the casting. love to see more of the girls i’m used to at VS but dorothea, rosie and anastazia really don’t belong here imo. i predicted that eniko, aminata, abbey, anha, behati & chanel would make an appearance and they all look stunning. again, great pictures!

  17. Sparkling bling bling I’m impressed lady’s
    Yer, I’d like to see Adriana Lima again she is a most beautiful person, sexy body & yer I love her sexy accent mwah x a kisses for you

  18. The show was NOTHING without Gisele and Karolina K.. nothing. BUT with Anja in it, I did smile. I LOVE her… and didn’t the girl who won the contest look identical to Rosie Huntington Whiteley? YES.

  19. and i missed Eugenia Volodina!! She always looked SOOOOOO perfect when done up VS style rather than her typical editorial style.. even tho that’s perfect too lol..

  20. Maryna did really well, and this is only her second time! I love her both on runway and backstage! But still, my all time favorite is Izabel Goulart. It was really sad that she is not an angel anymore though.

  21. izabel goulart!! most beautiful there, vs shows wont be the same without her next year :(

  22. The Top brazilian Julianna Martins is the face of victória’ s secret, had to be between angels,she’s Amaaaaziiiiinnnnnnngggggggggg!!!!!!!!!!

  23. I’m in love with Candice Swanepoel. She really is the number one. The sexiest of all.
