There’s been a lot of buzz going around about how spectacular the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was this year but I haven’t seen better pics of the show than the ones shot by Tommy Ton back stage posted on Style.com. While all the outfits are amazing, not to mention the iconic Victoria Secret angel wings, I see a theme emerging in this years show. Could it be the year of the super hero for Victoria’s Secret? See for yourself.

If you haven’t heard about the movement that’s sweeping the country called Occupy Wall Street then please google it now! The movement that’s outraged by big corporation’s influence in government politics and big government bailouts for said corporations is also susceptible to companies trying to capitalize on the movement. Fashion companies are trying to capitalize on a movement that’s kinda against consumerism by either making propaganda clothing or using the Occupy Wall Street name to market to that demographic. Shame, shame we know your game!
Dsquared² F/W 11/12
I came across these photos of the Dsquared² fashion show for their 2011/2012 line and OMG! I can’t get over the look!
