On July 29, 2014, Victoria’s Secret launched their new collection and fragrance in conjunction with the release of their ninth annual “What is Sexy? List” winners. The list features women who make maximum impact with minimal effort. For example, sexiest actress went to Margot Robbie, sexiest legs went to Amber Heard, sexiest bikini body went to Jenna Dewan Tatum, sexiest hair went to Lily Collins, sexiest smile went to Taylor Swift, sexiest lips went to Emilia Clarke, sexiest sense of humor went to Zooey Deschanel, sexiest mom went to Jessica Simpson, sexiest songstress went to Ellie Goulding, and sexiest international import went to Lily James.
Sexiest summer glow went to Blake Lively, sexiest street style went to Alexa Chung, sexiest TV cast went to “The Vampire Diaries,” sexiest short hair went to Jennifer Lawrence, sexiest sporty style went to Jessica Biel, sexiest natural beauty went to Nina Dobrev, sexiest eyes went to Emma Stone, sexiest up-and-comer went to Jhene Aiko and sexiest curves went to Gabrielle Union.
Victoria’s Secret will be flooding all their social media platforms with the hashtag #LessIsMore. The new collection features bras from their famous Incredible, Fabulous Bra, T-shirt Bra, and Unlined Styles, which are all sleek and sexy. The Incredible line gets an upgrade with some new colors and prints in the collection, while the Fabulous bras now come with multiple silhouette options as well as new light-as-air padding for customizing your shape.
The T-Shirt Bra line is better than ever with the power to disappear under the sheerest of cotton, but with a bit of lift for a natural and effortless look. The Unlined Styles line are daring with super-sheer mesh and barely-there lining for a comfortable yet sexy look. As for the new fragrance of the season, Eau So Sexy, is a light scent that is subtle, but still packs a punch with Bergamot, Paradise Apple and Chantilly Cream as notes. Victoria’s Secret Angel, Lily Aldridge was at the event to meet and greet customers and discuss the new releases for this season.

What’s your favorite summer beauty product?
My favorite summer beauty product is sunblock! I know it’s so important to wear sunblock and I know so many people that don’t. I think you just get a better glow, better tan, healthier skin when you wear sunblock.
What’s your preferred range of SPF?
I’m a 30 kind of girl, I think 30 is perfect. I think that’s good.
What’s your favorite bra for the summer?
That’s what I love about this new line, they’re not padded, they’re unlined, so very airy and more comfortable. I love the T-shirt bra, I love it under everything and its just the perfect summer bra.
Do you have a specific color or print from the new collection that you’re in love with?
I love the olive, it’s this really pretty green and it looks really beautiful on tan skin. I’ve actually never really seen Victoria’s Secret do that color before so I love it.
What have you been doing this summer?
I’ve been working, I went on tour with my husband and my daughter.
How was it?
It was really fun!
Who are some of your favorites on this year’s Sexy List?
I love Sexiest smiler Taylor Swift, I think she does have a very beautiful radiant smile and she is a beautiful person inside. Alexa Chung has her really great street style so she got Sexiest Street Style, which I think is so perfect and so cool. I love her street style so I’m so excited she’s on the list. Jessica Simpson is the sexiest mom, which is always nice to see the moms on the list, so I think that was perfect.
What’s your best tip for “less is more”?
I think it’s just about finding the good tinted moisturizer, mascara, highlighter. Try not to put too much makeup on, and try not to worry so much about your hair and the makeup and the everything. I think its just a kind of effortless style and not trying too hard.
