2006's set (and 07s) wasn't as big as you'd think. It was shot in the Kodak theatre in Hollywood, and like all things in Hollywood, everything is not what is seems. The way that theater is set up, anything that's there seems huge and it really isn't.

2009 probably had the biggest set and seating venue, strange, like you said, it had the shortest and in my opinion, the most disappointing runway.

2008 had the longest runway. Even though it ran side to side like a traditional theater stage and not straight down like regular fashion runways, I was surprised that the girls didn't run out of breath walking it.

Yes 2006 and 2007's runway looked the same size but 2007 set took up a lot of space and was almost up against the runway so the girls literally walked out and they were on the runway. The 2006 set was farther back away from the runway so the girls got to walk a couple of paces before they set foot on the runway. Those little differences on top of others made the show (in my opinion).

I think the 2010 and 2011 sets beat the 2003 set.

But the 2005 set will remain my favorite. 2008's was nice too even though i hated the one sided view

YES!!! I was going to post this, but I felt like I already posted too many references back to previous shows

Some have complained that the closing is too similar to last year but I don't mind because I like it very much especially Ale and Adri.

See that's why VS should've called me because I've been saying that about Candice for months. Candice is absolutely lovely and has been VS' go to girl for a while and I don't see that changing in the foreseeable future, but her VSFS walks are hit and miss because she runs out of steam and / or is too soft. Candice tends to be much better on the high fashion runways because the runways are not as long and they are less personality base. Nevertheless, from what I've seen, I agree with characterizing the opening as OK as opposed to bad, Candice is very, very pretty and the costume and production values are nice and I think that the song works as well, I think that was the best music choice for the segments that did not have a performer.

The VSFS occurs late in the year so she may have still been an angel when she shot Esquire.

Yeah I don't know why that made the final cut of the preview videos that have been released.

Yeah I noticed that and thought that she must've had a remote control or rip cord of some sort. I always wondered how Ale pulled off the glitter last year, if you pay attention you see her pulling from the wing and her closed fists, but that barely noticeable and was still very well done.

yeah - from what it looks like, anyway, Candice's opening will be a bit lackluster to some years gone by.

so ... here's a question: which do you think were the strongest openings ever?

here are my Top 3:

3. Adriana in 2003 - the Batman music was epic, her walk was fierce, the costume was SO cool, the lighting was brilliant.

2. KK in 2001 - such a sexy outfit, first real introduction of KK to the VSFS, insanely sexy walk, so much presence. she just came out and strutted. all bouncy and curvy hips. and the pose at the end and turn-around. perfect!

1. Gisele in 2005 - the build-up, with the christmas box opening and the models standing there. that was sublime. and then Gisele just KILLED IT. so much swagger. love the fantasy bra opening. her hair, the colour of the outfit. everything was perfect.


i'll also add -- my favourite mini-segment opening was also in the 2003 show. and it's when Tyra comes out after that red-haired girl they were trying to make into something. the music kicks in, "it's almost over now, almost over now ... " then the song was spectacular. "Rockstar" by N.E.R.D and Tyra ... what a DIVA. omg. that walk is surreal. so much woman, know what i mean? and her fierce stare at the end! amazing.

KK's overhyped. Yes she also lost the shoe and all but Natasha was first and handled it awesomely. I feel like "KKs case" is a bit staged after Natasha's original one.

Add me to those loving the "Natasha loses her shoe" moment, it was far from tragic. I am not sure if KK losing her shoe was was tragic either, but KK did have a tragic moment in 2008 (I think) when she had some kind of wardrobe malfunction.

I was so annoyed with VS about that cos she didn't walk one of the tapings due to her outfit breaking but did walk the other and they didn't edit it into the final show that aired. I know it's drama and chaos which makes interesting tv but incorporating the backstage havoc and her good walk would've been better in the final cut.

And as for my all-time favorite opening walks: I agree with those who said Gisele in 2005 and KK in 2001. Wow.

I agree that Candice was flat and there was no pizazz in her opening walk (judging by the photos), but I don't think her outfit was a good decision to open the show. I just felt as though it didn't work well as the show-opener as it was soft and dreamy instead of sharp and crazy as we've seen in previous shows.

Agree, Natasha definetely needs to come back to VS, but i don't think it's in her plans for the moments.

Those are my favorite openings as well.

I truly do miss Gisele, Tyra and KK.

I remember KK opening the segment in 03 with the music of Bilitis and brought so much energy and it wasn't a big, frantic segment.

That 2008 show was a mess for KK. Didn't she cut her leg pretty bad in 2008 during rehearsals because, inexplicably, the producers of the show thought it was a good idea to use BROKEN GLASS on the runway instead of glitter?
