Wednesday night on CBS the 2008 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show proclaimed "The Glamour is Back!" for the annual runway show. According to Victoria's Secret CEO Sharen Turney:

"The theme of the show is a return to glamour. Victoria's Secret is about sexy and the new sexy is glamorous for this season."

Which begs the question: Where did the glamour go in the first place? Was last year's fashion show less glamourous? And if this is the "new sexy" what was the old sexy? Perhaps comedian Janeane Garofalo said it best in an old comedy routine about runway shows:

"They have these runway shows and then they have a commentator going, 'A return to glamor this season. A pretty face is your best asset this season.' As opposed to last season. When ugly girls had a free ride. When back fat was all the rage."

For the 2008 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, the angels flew to Miami Beach Florida to walk the runway at the newly renovated Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel. The special featured footage from in and around the hotel, including an outdoor fireworks display for the fashion show's finale.

In addition to live performances from Usher and Jorge Moreno, the music for the show was produced by DJ Jeremy Healy, who has been the musical director for the annual televised Victoria's Secret fashion shows since 2001. As with the 2007 version of the show, this special featured less remixed music than in past shows. Healy offered remixes (in part by a live orchestra) of some runway tracks, including Kayne West's "Love Lockdown".
