Last night, as we all know, was the 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Taylor Swift performed in a Union Jack mini dress, and tall, toned women walked around her, showing off new bras, underwear, and things that no one would actually buy at Victoria's Secret (see below: sparkly nude bodysuit, velvet suspenders). To express their excitement for the show, Victoria's Secret posted the above photo on Twitter, with the caption "Who needs a cap & gown when you can wear wings?! #VSFashionShow" Wait, what? Isn't the only time "Who needs ___ when ___" used when the first thing is way better than the second, but people jokingly equate the two? A lot of people need education because they like learning, want to get a job, aren't 5'11", etc., THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF REASONS. Or are the Victoria's Secret Angels secretly jealous of people who get to wear caps and gowns? Caps and gowns themselves are not that great, Angels! Wearing a $10 million Fantasy Bra is probably better!
Anyway, inspired by their Class of 2013 picture, we decided to apply superlatives to some of the looks from last night:

With her mini Union Jack top hat, we thought Taylor Swift would take the prize for "smallest hat," but that honor goes to Lily Donaldson, whose tiny bowler lay slightly askew atop her beautiful blonde waves.

H&M might be considered fast fashion, but between recent collaborations with Versace, Margiela, and Marni, there's absolutely no question the Swedish retail giant has its affordable-meets-designer game on lock. Now it's the label's turn to take to the runway with its very first show in NINE YEARS during Paris Fashion Week! Joining PFW veterans like Dior, YSL, and Chanel, H&M will parade 25 looks from its Fall 2013 collection down the catwalk on February 27. While the company's no stranger to the concept—the Versace collection was presented as a fashion show back in 2011—we can't wait to see how this quick shopping staple actually translates in the massive Musée Rodin venue next month.
