4. The glue takes a few minutes to dry, so you can slightly adjust your letters to be in the perfect place in the meantime

5. Use a little extra glue on the ends so the sequin ribbons don’t unravel over time

CelebrityStyle File: The 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show!

That time of year is upon us again, where some of the most beautiful women in the world hit the catwalk looking like total angels. No, really, they wear fabulous wings! Of course we are talking about the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! This year was every bit as wonderful as before, and we were smitten by the heavenly looks! Our ears were also grateful for the musical guests, who kept the models smiling and dancing on the runway!
