The J-Cast Japanese website reported on Thursday that Gainax indicated that it had not been contacted by Victoria's Secret regarding the Evangelion lookalike outfit (pictured at right) that model Jourdan Dunn wore during the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion show held in New York City on November 7. J-Cast added that Gainax only learned about the outfit from the Internet and was perplexed by the situation.
The annual event features the undergarment and lingerie chain's "Angels" models showing off the company's latest designs accompanied by popular musical artists. The fashion show will air in the United States on CBS on December 4 at 10:00 p.m. EST/9:00p.m. CST.
