Made of Sugar and Spice, and Everything Nice!

Strangely enough for a SoCal native, fall is my favorite time of year.  Football, leaves changing color, holiday parties, and MOST importantly the coveted annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.  Each year, the lingerie trend setter puts together a fashion event of epic proportions.  Complete with 5 themed runway sets, international superstar performances and behind the scenes interviews with supermodels like Marisa Miller and Alessandra Ambrosio, the VSFS is a collection of the most beautiful undergarments and boudoir pieces showcased by none other than the stunningly beautiful cast of Victoria's Secret's Angels.

This year, the performer chosen was none other than the sweet sexy Katy Perry, who's chart topping album blew her "I Kissed a Girl" single out of the water.  With hits like "California Gurls" and "Teenage Dream" filling the commercial airwaves, it will be a breath of fresh girly-pop-air after last years performance by the synthesized sensation the Black Eyed Peas.  Joining her on-stage this year will be Senegalese singer/songwriter/producer Akon.

One thing missing from this year's festivities will be Heidi Klum, arguably the face of Victoria's Secret since Tyra and Gisele's departures from the runway show.  What a shame, since she has the most bangin' body of all the moms!  In fact, in 2005, just two months after giving birth to her baby, she returned to the runway with a fierce figure and her loving husband Seal to welcome her on-stage.  Just two years later in 2007, Heidi continued reigning the runway and joined Seal on-stage for a romantic duet that gave chills to the entire viewing audience.

This year is bound to be fantastic still, even without our German Princess guiding the way.  Some secrets of the show:  Adriana Lima will be making her post-baby debut by sporting the $2m Fantasy bra; the theme of the night is "A Thousand Fantasies", complete with sequins, feathers and insanely intricate wings only one could dream up; keep your ears peeled for Katy Perry's cover of Blondie's "Call Me".

Tune in 10/9c on Tuesday Nov. 30th for all the eye candy!
