Why I Love the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Hey guys!
So for the last week, my bloglovin feed was full of posts like, "Why I'm Not Watching the VS Fashion Show" or "Why the VS Fashion Show Sucks." I'm going to be honest, I haven't seen this year's show yet, but I have watched it for the past five years. And I love it. I will watch it as long as they keep airing them, and here's why...

1) It's Motivation
I am keenly aware that I will never look like Behati or Candice because of my height, genetics, ethnicity... With that being said, this show does help motivate me to make sure I look the best I can. This show airs smack dab in the middle of the holiday season, and it helps me refocus on health, put down that extra cookie, and hit the gym. I understand where people are coming from when they say "this show makes me feel bad about my body," but I think that you need to look at it as motivation to improve yourself instead of using it to critique yourself. 

2) It's Entertainment
It's just really good entertainment! I love seeing what's new each year, the performers, the fantasy bra... It's the one night of the year where you can see a fashion show without having to actually go to fashion week. Obviously it's a lot more sensationalized and hyped up now, but there's no denying that it's a great way to spend an hour. 

3) The Models
The models of the moment are usually in the Victorias Secret fashion show and it's always fun to see them walk and in those segments between the actual fashion show. Okay let's take a sec. Name your favorite model. Now let's see if she's in the show! Gigi? Yes! Kendall? Yes! Behati, Candice, Martha, Elsa, Taylor? YES! 

If the Victoria's Secret Fashion show makes you feel bad about your body, then don't watch it! I just think that it's trendy to bash on this, and I don't think that all the criticism is necessary. I'm going to keep watching the show, but you do what's best for you. Let me know in the comments whether you watched this years show or not and what your thoughts are on the VS Fashion show!

P.S. Not watching the show this year? Check out all the best looks from the show here!
