Happy Holidays from Victoria’s Secret

By Alicia Waite

The Victoria’s Secret Angels may be among the most beautiful people in the world, but it doesn’t mean they can sing, as producers of their Christmas video found out this year.

Yesterday saw the release of the American lingerie giant’s annual mini-movie, featuring the world-famous models wishing their fans happy holidays in a series of festive outfits which won’t leave much room for the Christmas turkey.

In front of a glittering tree and surrounded by Victoria’s Secret gifts, Erin Hetherton, Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Doutzen Kroes, Candice Swanepoel and Lindsey Ellington ‘serenade’ watchers with a rather jumpy version of Deck the Halls. It’s a song we’ve all been singing since childhood, but not all the Angels find the tune (or lyrics) so easy...

After five attempts at the opening line (‘Deck the halls with bells of jolly... boughs of jolly... above with holly... above with honey?’) Kroes finally gets it right to cheers from the camera team, whilst Kerr gives up altogether in favour of a rendition of Santa Baby (‘We don’t sing that Down Under!’).

But they get there in the end – and, in typical Victoria’s Secret style, the mistakes are made whilst looking gorgeous. When you consider who most of the watchers will be, that’s probably what matters the most. Enjoy!
