THE VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW 2016 #VSFASHIONSHOW

TMN MAGAZINE / 32


V

This year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show held in Paris, the fashion capital of the world and the City of Love on November 30 – was the biggest and best yet. This year's angels included Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, who both made their debuts at last year's show. Heading the bill was Lady Gaga, who performed three tracks from her new album Joanne. Also on the bill was diminutive pop star Bruno Mars who performed 24K Magic from his new album of the same name. Bruno had previously appeared at the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Show. Completing the line-up was The Weeknd who performed hit Starboy.

It's the most wonderful time of the year... the biggest event in everyones calendar has arrived. The 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Paris not only brought out the hottest supermodels of the moment, but it also showcased some of the most desirable lingerie pieces this season. TMN MAGAZINE / 34


S

Each year, twenty to forty of the world’s top fashion models are selected to perform in the fashion show. This year, 52 models in total blessed us with their beauty on the VS runway, meaning this show featured the largest group of girls to ever take to the VS Catwalk!

THE $3 MILLION BRIGHT NIGHT FANTASY BRA Every year, Victoria's Secret chooses one model to wear this dazzling showpiece, which varies from show to show. This year Jasmin Tookes wore the Bright Night Fantasy Bra, showcasing 9000 gemstones, 450 carats and worth approximately £2.4million ($3million.) Eddie Borgo is the designer of the Victoria’s Secret Bright Night Fantasy Bra, it took over 700 hours to create. That's peanuts compared to the Red Hot Fantasy Bra worn by Gisele Bundchen in 2000 — at £12million, the most expensive piece of lingerie ever made.

We wanted to show you some of our favourite looks from this year's VS extravaganza, well, we say 'some' but there are loads. Some of our favourite ladies starred in this year's show including Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Georgia Fowler, Sara Sampaio, Josephine Skriver, Stella Maxwell, Joan Smalls, Taylor Hill, Martha Hunt, okay okay, there are too many to name! You’re probs going to want to sit down because the perfection is just too much to handle. Enjoy...

TMNexclusives

KIMMARIE JOHNSON Written by JEREMIAH FOSTER

At a time when fame could only be attained by word of mouth and a very closely knit group of media houses, Ms Kimmarie Johnson pierced through the competition and made her mark on the world stage by the sheer power of her personality. Without prior training and the guidance of any industry guru, Kimmarie went from being the daughter of Frank and Carol Johnson of Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania to travelling the globe as a stewardess for the then famed PanAm, to being a feature model for fashion icons such as the United Colors of Benetton, Oscar de la Renta and a contender for several major film roles.

To describe Kimmarie Johnson as one of the most beautiful women on Earth would be a true injustice to her. Her very raw beauty is undeniable and timeless. As a model, Kimmarie frequently headlined all the fashion shows she participated in. Her immaculate appearance is unmatched in the industry. Kimmarie's commitment to the art of enhancing and maintaining the natural beauty of people led her to search out and create a line of products to assist women in reducing the probability of developing stretch marks resultant from pregnancy or other weight management activities. Her product line – SkinGlow by Kimmarie is designed to help women enhance their natural beauty.

57


After spending several years doing the fashion circuit on the East Coast and Europe, Kimmarie was introduced to Hollywood, where she later moved to, and began a career in acting. In Hollywood, Kimmarie applied herself to studying and working the stage

As a business tycoon, Kimmarie decided early on in her career not just to be in front of the camera, but to also be instrumental in and helping other artists realize their artistic vision. This decision led her to become the execute producer of several film projects including those of the highly acclaimed South Korean born producer – Young Man Kang. The projects she financed for him have won some critical acclaim over the years. Kimmarie has a good ear for a good story and her visionary insight has always proven to be accurate.

circuit. Early on, she was cast in several TV shows and a few feature films. As competitive as Hollywood is, Kimmarie was able to hold her own in a town ruled by nepotism and gender challenges. Kimmarie quickly learned that there were two sides to show business, and one side of that business requires the wit and acumen of a business tycoon.

K

immarie enjoys

professional dancing. She spent several years learning how to dance professionally. Her commitment to the art of the dance helped her to develop the precision and grace that defines every facet of her life. You will often find her working out to some dance routines just for fun.

When we caught up with Kimmarie, we asked her a few questions, to get into the mind of this iconic lady: TMN: You have not been auditioning in recent times. Are you no longer interested in acting? 59


KIMMARIE JOHNSON:

Acting is always going to be an art form that I am interested in. The auditioning process can sometimes be very grueling, and with a busy schedule like mine, it is very difficult to search out roles that I am interested in, and audition for them. I am always on the lookout for a role that will challenge my abilities. When the proper opportunity presents itself, I will gladly do what I need to do to be a part of it.


TMN: You have been described as the most beautiful woman alive. How does that make you feel? KJ: It is an honor that I am grateful to God for. It is a gift that I am a custodian of and I do the best I can with the resources available to me to maintain. It feels good to be considered one of the most beautiful women alive. TMN: Your career path has been quite unique. You started as a stewardess for an illustrious airline, became a model for iconic fashion designers, starred in some pretty interesting films, executive produced others and own your own beauty product line. What else is there for you to do?

KJ: I have been fortunate to have been the recipient and channel for all these blessings. We never know what the future holds, so I simply live my life one day at a time. I always leave myself open to any opportunities that will present themselves. TMN: Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to chat with us. We are honored to have you as our woman of the year. KJ: No‌ thank you for the honor. 60
