The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, arguably the biggest fashion event of the year, took place last night in New York and it. was. FABulous. Well, the pictures looked fabulous. We, of course, had invites but, sadly, had to decline as we're currently glamming it up with the people of Belfast on Custom House Square.

We did, however, find time between shows to admire the beautiful clothes and amazing acts - so here's a pick of what we loved at this years Victoria's Secret Show.


This year marked the 20th anniversary of the fashion extravaganza and they certainly celebrated in style...ba dum tss...the show involved 47 beautiful catwalk models, saw the début of 10 new Angels and even included some famous faces such as Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner - who both looked amazing! You wont be surprised to hear that the beautiful models were wearing some beautiful lingerie... We can definitely see Jaqueline wearing this in next years production...

In April of this year Cirque Surreal: Voyagers was staged at The Lowry, Salford for 5 days of performance over the Easter holiday period. This one off rendition of Cirque Surreal, the first in 8 years, was particularly significant as it was the first time it was presented on stage to theatre audiences. World class artists from across continents were brought together under the guiding eye of creative director Phillip Gandey, who set about adapting this narrative driven circus for stage. Cirque Surreal was met with critical acclaim from audiences and critics alike showing the contemporary nature and versatility of this truly unique take on circus art.
