It's been a long time coming. I was swamped with work that I set aside blogging about this. If you can remember, I blogged about VS fashion show 2014. Now a new model was the focus of attention. Kendall Jenner, daughter of Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner (now Caitlyn Jenner). Both of them were present and the camera focused on them when Kendall walked the runway. She and best friend Gigi Hadid were among the new VS angels. The concept of the fashion show in 2014 was different because in 2015 the models shared stories about themselves. How the new models were told they were to become angels was also shown.

The picture above shows Gigi Hadid modeling for the VS executives. 

Gigi Hadid without makeup being interviewed about being selected as a VS angel.

This time she had makeup and she looks great. In this part, they were on their way to first day of rehearsals.

Then the both of them showed the empire state building with VS colors. The show was held in NY city by the way. Pictures of Gigi and Kendall modeling are shown below.

The picture above shows the models in VS lingerie. The models admitted that they worked hard to achieve having a fit body. They work out everyday which reminds me that I should work out even if I'm not a model. They said that you feel good after exercising.

Some stunning VS lingerie are shown below.

Behati Prinsloo, wife of Adam Levine is shown below.

The artists who sang songs in the show were Selena Gomez, The Weekend, and            Ellie Goulding.

The fantasy bra was worn by Lily Aldridge shown below. She was 29 years old when she wore it.

Here's a clearer photo of the fantasy bra. It has a lot of precious stones on it and it was heavily guarded.

Now the fashion show won't be complete without a class picture which is shown below.

VS fashion show 2016 is going to be next month so I can't wait to watch it.

Doctor Strange

Spoiler Alert!

This movie was great. I liked it. Insert heart, heart, heart here. The story was very interesting. He developed his inherent power. He can manipulate time. I admire his character because he is very smart. He was able to conquer the villain in the movie. I thought that was it. They will be defeated. Surprise, surprise. Due to his intelligence and wit, he was able to overcome the villain. A usurper of worlds. Doctor strange manipulated time such that, he kept rewinding what has happened with the knowledge of said villain. So the villain was irritated. Doctor Strange put into the villain's mind that he is Dr. Strange's prisoner because he kept repeating the part where the villain killed him. However he comes alive again and repeating the process over and over again. So the villain bargained with Doctor Strange played by Benedict Cumberbatch. The villain is Eternity.

Doctor Strange told Eternity what he wanted. He wanted it to take Kaecilius into its world, leave earth and never come back. Kaecilius is a sorcerer who wanted more power. He went to the dark side and used dark magic. He left the group of sorcerers. He destroyed the time loop in Hongkong. However, Doctor Strange used the eye (a magic stone) to rewind the time so Hongkong is not destroyed.

The special effects were great especially the part where buildings were folding over just like "Inception". What was lacking was more of these. I found it lacking.

There was a funny part. The part when Doctor Strange found his cape. The cape seems to have a mind of its own. It helped Doctor Strange fight his enemies. Then there was also a time when he fixed his cape at the neck, the cape kept touching his face. Doctor Strange said "Stop it". That was funny.

Kaecilius, another villain in the movie shown below.

Eternity shown below.

The sorcerer supreme or the ancient one played by Tilda Swinton was killed in the movie. 

She was supposed to be a male Tibetan monk as depicted in the comics.

There was a scene after the credits which showed Doctor Strange talking to Thor. Thor was drinking a large mug of beer. The mug kept refilling even if Thor already finished the beer. Doctor Strange must have used his rewinding power again. In this scene, Thor was asking Doctor Strange for help in looking for his father Odin. I'm assuming this was for the sequel. I can't wait for the next one. I rate this movie 4 stars.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Spoiler Alert!

This is the movie adaptation from the book with the same title shown below.

I watched it last Saturday via online streaming. It was amazing. The movie's story had me glued to my laptop. I couldn't stop watching. At first, I was afraid because the grandpa was killed by a hollow, no eyes. It was horrifying. However, I got over my fear. I was overcome by the amazing story line, gorgeous special effects and cute lead actor. Asa Butterfield has grown up. He's cute.

I like the story's backdrop. September 3, 1943. Cairnholm Island near Wales. The children did not grow old. They are in a time loop because Miss Peregrine created one during this date due to a bomb being dropped by the enemy. 

There was a part where I shed a few tears because Miss Peregrine had to sacrifice herself for the safety of the children. She turned into a Peregrine falcon and entered a cage to be carried by the villain, Baron (played by Samuel L. Jackson) to Blackpool. He was going to conduct an experiment to make him and his kind immortal using the Ymbrynes. Miss Peregrine is an Ymbryne. Baron is a wight. He disguised himself as Jacob Portman's Psychiatrist Dr. Golan. Jacob or Jake played by Asa Butterfield embarked on this adventure because he was told by his grandfather about an island where a Miss Peregrine cares for peculiar children.

There was a scene where Emma took Jake to her underwater secret place. It was amazing. It was a sunken ship during the war. Since her power is to control the air, she blew the water from the inside of the ship so there was air to breathe. I like this part very much.

The part where they defeated the hollowgasts was also something that I liked. Another one is where the children helped each other to defeat the wights. The other hollowgasts with human forms. The twins' power turned one of the wights to stone, she fell and broke into pieces. Wow. 

You should watch this movie. You will miss out if you don't. I rate this movie 5 stars. Below are some pictures from the movie.

The picture below are the kids getting ready to fight a hollowgast.

The picture below is that of a hollowgast or hollow. It eats the eyes of peculiar children.

The picture below is Baron. The peculiar wight evil villain in the movie.

The picture below shows one of my favorite scenes from the movie.
