It’s finally here! Happy Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show day! I have been looking forward to this since August when I was at the castings. You can read about my experience at the castings here. Since then, I have been following the Victoria’s Secret Angels to see the inside scoop. I heard that Victoria’s Secret Angel Lais Ribeiro is going to be wearing the $2 Million Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra. Oh la la.

I decided to dedicate this week’s posts to the Victoria’s Secret Shanghai Fashion Show. I guess you can say the next few blog posts will be Angel themed.

Here are the important details for tonight’s show:

The show is tonight, Tuesday November 28 at 10/9C on CBS.

Musical guests include: Harry Styles, Miguel, Jane Zhang, Leslie Odom Jr., and Yundi Li.

I just finished watching the Go Behind The Scenes Of The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Dress Rehearsal sneak peak for the VS Fashion show –  it was fabulous. I always love seeing the excitement backstage. There is so much that goes on behind the scenes of a fashion show between changing outfits, hair & makeup and getting ready to walk. After looking at all of the backstage Bombshell moments, I had to share some of my favorite photos with you.

I can’t wait to see the show. It looks like it is going to be spectacular! I hope that one day I can attend a Victoria’s Secret Fashion show. But for now, I guess cuddling up in my pajamas while watching it on TV will have to do.

What do you think? Are you excited? Who’s your favorite Victoria’s Secret model?

Happy Thanksgiving from Fashion Blogger Jenny A.

chris-lawton-154388.jpg

Keep calm and gobble on! This year my friends and I decided to be trendy and make our own Friendsgiving. We wanted to do a little something special for the holidays. There were about 10 of us and we all had to bring our own dish.

My mom and dad helped me put a delicious assortment together. My mom baked her famous broccoli quiche and my dad raced to get some boxes of donuts. My parents are the best! I think the new motto should be keep calm and call mom & dad.

Honestly, it was so heartwarming to see everyone come together and celebrate. While we were all eating I looked around the room and just thought about how thankful I am.

I just want to take the time to thank all of you for being so wonderful. I hope you have a fabulous Friendsgiving, Turkey Day and Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Love always,

-Jenny A.

Model Marcus Killebrew’s Advice for Facing Your Fears

It was almost 11:00pm and everyone was getting ready to go home from the Unique Blend Models fashion show. It was such a long day but I didn’t want to leave without speaking with model Marcus Killebrew. So there I was sitting in the lobby with Marcus while he opened up about his modeling career.

After speaking with Marcus, I was inspired. He said that fear is an illusion and it only prevents you from moving forward. Very wise words. While there are many things that might be scary, I decided that right now I am going to focus on my own fears.

Meet Marcus:

“Take more risks and see what happens.”

Model Marcus Killebrew is a personal trainer who believes in the power of takings risks and not letting fear stop him from accomplishing his goals. He shared that when he was younger, he used to be bullied and that lifting became a type of therapy for him. It helped him build up his confidence. Through his experience as a personal trainer, he is constantly tring to help others break through their fear and anxiety.

Marcus’s top goal is to grow himself into a strong brand for both (1) his modeling career and (2) as a coach. He shared that some of challenges he’s faced as a model has been trying to better understand the business side of the modeling world and adopting to all of the politics. Even through all of the challenges, he is always trying to learn and grow from his experience.

Marcus likes to hang out in the comfort of his own home. You can find him watching an episode of Game of Thrones or playing some video games. When he goes out, he likes to check out the different eateries and dessert spots which NYC has to offer. One of his most recently discovered places is Tipsy Scoop, which serves ice cream with a boozy twist. Cheers!

Fun Facts about Marcus:

  1. His favorite weight training exercise is the deadlift.
  2. If he could be a fruit or vegetable, he would be a raspberry because it is both sweet and tart.
  3. Rush Hour 2 and The Matrix are his favorite movies.

Marcus modeled for the PLITZS Fashion Marketing and for the Unique Blend Models fashion show.

Model Aeri Cohen’s Healthy Lifestyle

Meet Aeri:

Aeri Cohen is an extraordinary model with an artistic eye. When she is not on the runway, you can find her behind the scenes doing makeup for different New York fashion shows. Her ultimate makeup look is something simple yet beautiful where she can add her own creative details. Like a true fashionista at heart, she always carries her brush and concealer.

Healthy – Healthy – Healthy. Did I mention the word healthy? Aeri has a very healthy lifestyle. She never misses her daily yoga and is always drinking a healthy refreshing smoothie. Now that I think about it, even during our interview, she was on her way to a yoga class while sippin’ on a smoothie! You can find her wearing workout clothes during the day and fancy outfits at night.

I really admire Aeri because she lives her life by always moving forward and letting things go. Her biggest accomplishment is that she was able to use meditation to manage her migraines. Now that she accomplished that, she can do ANYTHING!

When I asked her what fruit or vegetable she would be, she started to say that she would be an avocado but then decided she didn’t want to be eaten!

Aeri is the owner of ISHKINart where she creates beautiful artwork which can be found on Etsy.
