I was excited to watch another Brazillian bombshell Lais Ribeiro for this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2012. I was dismay when I did not see her photos… thinking….what on earth happened? Thought she was a signed Angel already? How come she did not walk the runway this year?
What happened was, she sprained her ankle during rehearsal. That’s why she didn’t walk the runway for this year’s show.
1 – Behati Prinsloo replaced her for this outfit set.
I didn’t think Behati nailed this outfit. It just doesn’t have the synergy, connection, chemistry & ability to own up this whole set of outfit. It’s obvious why during casting & test try that this set was catered & tailored for Lais.
Plus, when Behati opened this section, it wasn’t that enchanting & I honestly do not think she played the role well as how it was supposed to be. Bear in mind the section is named “Dangerous Liaisons” for a good reason.
2- Shanina Shaik was chosen to replace the second set of outfit.
She did a good job to replace Lais with such a short notice. What’s amazing is when I look at the set of outfit & considered the stage set up, lighting & colours, I can concur that she knows how to play her role well in the section “Angels in Bloom”. I’m also attracted to her all of sudden.
However, this was what I found;
Unfortunately, she’s already taken by supermodel Tyson Beckford (Sean John main man runway model).
