As she did her thing, Harry steers spun around the stage and hit his hit single, the only Angel.
The crowd got crazy and it was hard to know if they were cheering for the $2 million jewelry bra Ribeiro or the Brazilian beauty herself.
In most cases, the grand event held in Shanghai, China in November was a success.
Ribeiro and more than a dozen of her supermodel friends are at their best in about $12 million in production, with company executives arranging television broadcasts around the world.
But the world yawned.
In the mouth-watering demographics, the show\'s ratings dropped by 32 percentage points from the previous year
To only 5 million
The company insists that this is still the world\'s most watched fashion event, with more and more people listening online.

To reverse the situation, the company\'s executives lowered the price and extended the sales time.
Sales per square foot have fallen over the past two years, and neither has worked as sales continued to decline in the first quarter.
Perhaps more troublesome, younger, more aggressive competitors now surround Victoria\'s Secrets like a group of hungry sharks --
Each has a marketing campaign that resonates with young women.
\"Victoria\'s Secret is an example of a company that thinks it\'s too big to fail,\" said Cora Harrington, editor and founder of underwear addiction . \".
\"I don\'t think they ever thought about where American consumers would go.
\"Walking into almost any of the 1,124 Victoria Secret stores in the United States, you can immediately see where the problem is.
Where are all shoppers?

It is largely counter-productive to Columbus, Ohio.
\"For decades, it has been positioned the same way, connecting sexy to supermodels, and now it\'s not working,\" Konik said . \".
The MeToo campaign, which broke out in public awareness in last October, did not help.
According to a recent YouGov survey, the brand\'s image has been hit since then.
\"Angels are not connected, and the shop looks too much like an outdated boudoir,\"-Line Partners.
Victoria\'s secrets are being watched off the field, and more competitors have seized on fashion trends such as bralettes and plus --and thrived.

Aerie reported that comparable store sales soared by 38 in the first quarter of this year, mainly due to the strength of its AerieREAL campaign, which demonstrated the lack of professional models and regular customers
Last month, Aerie launched a marketing campaign featuring women with various diseases and diseases, including a young woman with an insulin pump protruding from the abdomen and another skin pigmentation

A spokeswoman for the brand said by email that positive marketing could pay off \"Victoria\'s Secret has always been about self-confidence\"
The mail talks about the positive movement of the body and adds: \"When your bra fits, you stand a little higher, the clothes fit a little, and you feel more comfortable and confident --
This is sexy.

Experts say there is one less reason for shoppers to go to the store.

According to Bloomberg, 7 billion has been keeping a close eye on Victoria\'s Secrets, taking over the chain in 2016, when Sharen Jester Turney, CEO of the chain for ten years, suddenly left.
Her successor, the singer of January, was appointed three months later, but Wexner never entered the board of directors of the company.
\"Les is involved in a lot of work,\" said Simeon Siegel, analyst at Instinet . \".
\"Over the past decade, we \'ve seen some founders/CEOs step aside, but he\'s one of the most involved people in the company he started.
Others say Wexner is part of the problem.
\"At the end of the day, he is out of touch with today\'s reality,\" said Randal Konik, analyst at Jefferies . \".
The company declined to let Wexner go public through a spokesman.
Recent interviews with the legendary retailer have drawn attention, and he appears to have a lack of understanding of the impact of MeToo sports and technology on retail.
When asked by the Financial Times whether the objectifying of women in the fashion industry encouraged men\'s bad behavior, Wexner replied, \"I think it\'s totally nonsense.
Victoria\'s Secret, he argues, cannot take advantage of women because it is run by women.
\"The business has always been the responsibility of a lady.
The marketing director is a woman.
\"These are not exploiting women,\" he told the Financial Times . \".

Size manufacturers only have 9 pieces of clothing to promote Victoria\'s Secrets on larger size production lines.
\"Unfortunately, at this point in time, we are not going to expand our focus to a larger scale,\" a senior executive responded by email on March 2, 2016.
\"My company has tried to sell them many times, but the answer is always \'not at this time, \'\" said Jamie Gorman, only nine founders \'. \".
Now, from \"worship me\" to \"love three\", a series of new underwear competitors have launched the plus-
Size lines and secret Victoria heels
Ironically, both appeared with the help of former Victoria Secret executives.
\"Our business started to take off in 2016,\" said Heidi Zac, founder of Love, an e-commerce company.
In June, commercial retailers increased the size they provided from 50 to 70, almost twice the size of Victoria Secret\'s 39.
While it\'s always dangerous to underestimate retail masters like Wexner, for Victoria\'s Secret, the situation hasn\'t gotten any brighter.
