Victoria’s Secret touches down in Shanghai
The world most expensive fashion show, The Victoria’s Secret Show, celebrated their 2017 instalment on Monday night in Shanghai. This is the brand’s third time presenting the show outside of the U.S. and organisers were eager to top the extravaganza that was 2016’s Paris show held at the famed Grand Palais. This year’s show featured a roster of 50 of the world’s most beautiful models and signalled the return of homegrown favourite, Candice Swanepoel, to the runway. Superstars Harry Styles and Miguel provided the entertainment while whipping the crowd into a frenzy in typical rock star fashion. The parade of angels would not be complete without the inclusion of the show’s second most out of this world attraction – The Fantasy Bra. Totaling $2 million, the Fantasy bra is a bejewelled masterpiece rivalled in beauty only by its wearers and this year that honour belonged to Brazilian model Lais Rebeiro. Don’t forget to catch the full spectacular when it airs on the 28th of November.
100 Stacks for rare Yeezys
A pair of rare Air Yeezys has just surfaced on Flight Club that is going for a budget-busting $100000. For those not in the know, the Air Yeezys were the first shoes Kanye West designed for Nike, and the sneaker that launched the hype rocket that has not stopped soaring ever since. The unreleased samples feature an all-black upper and glow in the dark sole. These prototype Yeezys made their debut at the 2008 Grammys were Kanye wore them during an emotionally charged performance mere months after his mothers passing. So, $100000 may seem like a steep asking price for sneakers, but when you consider the particular time and place fashion finds itself in – where hype means far more than the product – $100000 seem like a bargain. For lottery winners, reckless billionaires, and overly generous Secret Santas, you can find the sneakers here

Pharrell makes future music
Pharell Williams, the man with 100 talents and even more collaborations, finds a new way to steal the headlines with his latest endeavour: A brand new song set to be released 100 years from now in 2117. The song, 100 Years, produced by Williams, addresses the issues of climate change and the human impact on our environment. It is an attempt to challenge the climate change deniers and bring awareness to a pressing issue and worldwide responsibility – ” I thought, ‘Let me just troll all the pseudoscientists, the ones that don’t care about the ecosystem”, he said. The sole copy of “10o Years” was produced in collaboration with French Cognac maker Louis XIII (who age their cognac for 100 years) and is printed on a clay vinyl made from soil from the Louis XIII vineyard. The entire event took place in Shanghai and featured a host of celebrity guests including actors Jess Williams and Zhao Wei and Model Jourdan Dunn.
