I like the current format. No nudity or sleaze, mosty a fantasy showcase with the great costumes, great girls, and overall mood that draws me in. Music is a big part and it always comes as a surprise to me that acts I don't normally listen to sound GOOD. I would say that focus is more on the pretty constumes than actual lingerie. They say it takes them a full year to make the designs. It's literally a show.
Let me add that I love the themes they come up with. They have a few themes throughout the show and they base the costume designs on those. Like the theme during Rihanna's 'Phresh'. When Alessandra came out with the purple flowers as wings, man, she looked so beautiful. Then Jasmine Tookes right after her with the green umbrella. It's artistic and beautiful.
