We always thought the board game Candy Land was the best representation of an explosion of colors, treats and unabashed fun, but we seem to have underestimated the sheer wonderment of a Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Katy Perry performed amidst a bevvy of jordan almond-shaped balloons, the set resembled a carnival-themed lingerie party, and even though we're unable to gawk at how ridiculous the models' bodies are, we're still practically picking our jaws off the floor. Stay tuned to Racked National for more photos of the soon-to-air event, and if we're in luck, a peek at the highly intriguing "country girl gingham" outfits. [Racked National]
