Every holiday season, the Angels of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show gallantly spread their wings on the runway for a national TV audience. Who’s to say a man couldn’t don a lace bra and panties and feel just as confident and sexy?

I like my dudes a bit fatter than this, but Kristoff lives on carrots and hauls ice for a living. His siblings are boulders. So there you go.
