Last night was the first day of December, and for the past few years, women and men alike have been circling the date in their calendars for a very special reason. In addition to the official holiday shopping countdown, December 1 marks the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, a runway presentation that's become the very definition of sexy, drool-worthy lingerie. Each year the show becomes more elaborate and the artful, modernistic installations planned for this year was expected to raise the bar to its highest yet. So an appropriately stylish celebration was in order—and of course, Chicago was just the place to have it!
This year was especially notable for Chicagoans with the recent opening of the luxe, multi-level Victoria's Secret store on Michigan Avenue where many of the brand's supermodel Angels came out to play. Last night brought back one of the sexiest Angels in the bunch, Alessandra Ambrosio. The Brazilian-born beauty hosted a meet and greet at the Michigan Avenue store earlier in he evening, then moved onto sleek Loop space, Underground, for a special viewing party of the show. Stoli Vodka compiled flirty cocktails tinged in pink and topped off with exotic flowers. Guests mingled and sipped their drinks, waiting for a photo op with Alessandra and fellow VIP guest Lance Briggs. The fashion show splashed across a dozen flat screens set up for the occasion and were set on repeat for a the full, fabulous effect.
