One of the Måneskin's members had a wardrobe malfunction as a crowd of dancers surrounded the group, jumped, and danced on stage during their performance at the MTV Video Music Awards 2022, attracting a lot of attention and controversy.

Despite the fashion faux pas, the band's bassist, Victoria de Angelis, continued to play her bass guitar. As a result, the show's producers decided to cut the visuals for forty seconds. The unforeseen incident left viewers disappointed.

VICTORIA DE ANGELIS - THE ONLY MÅNESKIN WOMAN

As the only female member of the influential Italian rock band, Victoria's recent outfit blunder has garnered much attention. The young musician was born in Monteverde, Rome, on April 28, 2000.

Victoria was raised in a multilingual home. Her late mother was Danish, and her father, Alessandro, is Italian. Victoria has a younger sister named Veronica.

Victoria's mother was the one who taught her to speak Danish, and it comes in handy for her whenever she travels to Denmark. During the holidays in the country, she would blend in and speak their language.

Victoria's Danish grandmother once stated in a Danish publication that her granddaughter never spoke openly about her mother, who passed away after a battle with cancer several years ago.

While Victoria may not speak about her mother, she talks freely about her love of music, specifically her interest in playing the bass guitar. She said she began playing the bass guitar when she was only eight.

Victoria immediately fell in love with playing the bass guitar and its unique tone. She has held high regard for famous women bassists, including Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, Suzi Quatro, and Tina Weymouth of Talking Heads. She said of the female musicians:

"I admire women who did important things in a field in which male attitudes prevail."

Victoria has learned music with the help of Thomas Raggi, in addition to the female musicians she admires. She and Thomas were the first two members of Måneskin long before the band got its name and officially formed.

They had known each other since high school. Both friends were together when they began looking for a singer and drummer. Raggi and Victoria started to look for potential band vocalists until they found one, a female singer.

Unfortunately, they could not collaborate thoroughly with their female singer because she lived outside Rome and could not attend practice sessions. The high school friends then discovered Damiano David and Ethan Torchio.

David and Torchio are now the official vocalist and drummer of the band, respectively. Since the group's formation, Victoria has suggested the name Måneskin, which means "moonlight" in Danish.

With the band's inception, Victoria sought her father's help reaching their dreams. Alessandro, who once ran a travel agency in Rome, supported his daughter and her band in their journey to stardom.

Since then, the band has made a name for itself in the entertainment industry. Not only did Victoria's band reach success, but it was also a life-changing moment for Alessandro. He is now the head of the Måneskin Empire.

However, the band's meteoric rise to fame was not without complications. Fans assumed that Victoria was in a relationship with David as the way they treated each other was similar to that of a real couple.

While Victoria never clearly addressed her relationship with David, she repeatedly stated in past interviews that she is bisexual and attracted to both sexes.

MÅNESKIN TALKS ABOUT SUCCESS

Following the band's success, Måneskin revealed in an interview with Vogue that they are living the dream. The group is known for promoting a message of acceptance and for normalizing a genderfluid aesthetic.

David reflected on the band's work, saying that while he felt different on and off stage, his thoughts and feelings were genuine in both situations. Victoria's reaction was the polar opposite of Damiano's, and she stated:

"I feel it's always me, but [onstage] that's the moment where I feel like I can express myself fully and just be free of any inhibitions and just enjoy the moment."

Torchio stated that playing for the crowd was about "living the moment," while Raggi mentioned that it was the best thing he had ever experienced, adding that he "will stay forever on stage." Victoria said that their journey had been emotional yet rewarding.

The band, formed in 2016, came in second in Rome's "X-Factor" competition in 2017. In 2021, the band competed in and won the San Remo Festival and Eurovision. They are known for their various hits, including the track "Supermodel."

Her striking dark eye makeup complemented her black outfit. According to makeup artist Chantal Ciaffardini, she used dramatic lashes, glitter, and matte brown shadow to create an ombre effect on Victoria's lids.

Ciaffardini perfectly groomed the bassist's bushy brows and added a pink color to her lips. Victoria's overall appearance, including her messy hairstyle, elevated her to the status of a true rock star.
