I don't always watch the Victorias Secret fashion show, but when I do, I watch it for the Eva references

There's always the possibility that they have the blessing of Gainax.

I dig the outfit, but I really wonder why it was a Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Was it held in Japan or something? Seems completely random for a normal fashion show.

That's ridiculously hilarious! I'd love to know how the designer got wind of an EVA suit design.

I'm neutral about Victoria's Secret in general, but I think it's pretty clever that someone tied in the two angels.

Nope, taped in NYC, scheduled broadcast on CBS Dec. 4th (darned involuntary ET exposure). Wink

Why?


Well, it's not exactly clear from the article if this outfit was done with permission of the Japanese copyright holders. I suspect that is what ANN has tried to find out, but the company apparently hasn't responded yet. It wouldn't be the first time that a clothing company made unauthorized outfits based on copyrighted material. Though, these usually tend to be small timers that are trying to turn a quick buck without sharing. I would think that Victoria Secret could afford to do things legally, though.

Japan's original design is more modest?

I bet that whoever designed the outfit would probably try and make some excuse as to why its an original piece and not based on something from an anime.
