PINK Break!

Spring break is a time students get to put away their books and head out to the beach for some fun in the sun with friends. Over the years Victoria’s Secret PINK has brought Spring Break to a whole new level. Every year Victoria Secret ‘PINK’s out’ spring break and throws a huge bash in an area known for its beaches, South Florida!

PINK Break 1

It all started in 2004 at Miami Beach. Spring break was welcomed by a Pink Runway Show featuring new and exclusive spring break bikinis. Models, like Alessandra Ambrosio, passed out Pink goodies like free t-shirts and interacted with fans that came out.

Due to its success, Pink continued on with the spring break tradition and the next major party was also held in Miami and had guests such as Selita, Ebanks, Ciara, Jojo, Nick Cannon, Kristin Cavallari and Haylie Duff. Party go-ers could dunk celebrities in the dunk tank, watch Nick Cannon juggle or indulge in some ice cream to beat the heat. There was also non-stop DJ entertainment, a smoothie bar, tug of war, pool relay races, volleyball and many other fun activities for PINK fans to enjoy.

The next major PINK bash was thrown in 2010 at Key West’s landmark Mallory Square. Not only was their an exclusive PINK-ified Pop-Up Shop featuring must have Spring Break items but also a photo booth, body painting, glitter tattoos, braiding and beading, friendship bracelet making, palm readings, and even hacky sack! Afterwards there were musical performances by One Republic and Matt White and a guest appearance by Ashley Tisdale and  Behati Prinsloo.

 In 2011, Victoria’s Secret PINK hosted Spring Break in Miami with the theme “Let’s go wild in Miami” the celebration was at Lummus Park in South Beach. The party was hosted by PINK models Chanel and Behati. At the party Victoria’s Secret launched their exclusive “Aloha Pink Collection” and gave early access to all members who attended.  The day was filled with fun activities, beach challenges, freebies and more!

In 2012, PINK went all out during Spring Break. By then Victoria’s Secret PINK’s spring break event had become the biggest annual event to hit South Beach. The party was held at the Shelborne Beach Resort and took 3 days to set up. They worked their magic and transformed the upscale beach-side lounge of the Shelborne to a Victoria’s Secret Pink haven complete with balloons, furniture, logos, banners and pool furniture all made exclusively for the event. The event welcomed over 800 people and was the buzz of the town thanks to hosts Joe Jonas, Chanel Iman and Elsa Hosk. It featured goodies such as a PINK ice cream stand, branded games, water pong, a photo booth, surfboard signing station, a taco stand, and an exclusive Pop-Up PINK store to display all the hottest trends for spring break.

Let the #VSFashionShow Countdown Begin!

2010 Fashion Show

The Victoria Secret Fashion Show is a prime time television event like no other. Originally the fashion shows occurred around Valentines day as a marketing technique in the 1990’s, and were not aired on national television. The first was in 1995 at the iconic Plaza hotel in NYC. In the later 1990’s and early 2000’s the fashion shows moved to the web. In 2001, the Victoria Secret Fashion Show moved to around the Christmas Holiday season and made its debut airing on ABC. Every year after that, the fashion show has aired on CBS except in 2004 where instead of a traditional annual fashion show, the models did an “Angels Across America Tour”, where they visited many hot locations across the USA promoting Victoria Secret.

2012 Angels

The fashion show has been held in a number of hit locations including Miami, Los Angeles and of course New York City. Every year the show becomes bigger, better and more lavish than the year before though various celebrities, set design, theme, costume and music. Musical acts include Spice Girls, Kanye West, Destiny’s Child and Mary J Blige. A group of 20 to 40 of the hottest models every year are hand picked to model, and become the world renown Victoria Secret Angels.

In 2006 Victoria Secret PINK made its debut into the show!

Doutzen Kroes 2006

Something to watch for is the Fantasy Bra. Every year a different high end jewelry designer is picked to bedazzle and glorify a bra and one of the top Angels is picked to wear. Angels who have worn the Fantasy Bras include Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum and Adriana Lima. The bra is used as a centerpiece for the event. These bras are for sale, as the ultimate gift, but to date only one has sold due to their extreme price tag.

Floral Fantasy Bra

This year, the Victoria Secret Fashion Show will be held in New York City featuring artist Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars. Make sure you watch out for this year’s Fantasy Bra, the Floral Fantasy Bra being worn by Alessandra Ambrosio being valued at $2,500,000. The Victoria Secret Fashion Show airs on CBS on December 4th at 10pm! Visit Victoriasecret.com/fashionshow and see how to train like an Angel, how to earn your wings and see exclusive sneak peek footage!
