The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is one of the most exciting runway shows of the year. The show took place on Monday (November 20) at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China and it will air on TV in the U.S. on Tuesday, November 28 on CBS at 10pm EST. If you’re anything like us, you probably don’t want to wait for the show to air on Nov. 28 to see what your favorite Angels wore on the runway, and luckily you don’t have to. From who’s walking, to who isn’t walking, and details of the fantasy bra, performers and themes, here’s your definitive guide to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2017.
Who will be performing?
Former One Direction member and Miss Vogue pin-up Harry Styles has been booked for the night, alongside Miguel, Jane Zhang and Leslie Odom Junior.
Which models are walking in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2017?
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2017 models include Angel Candice Swanepoel will make her return to the famous winged runway after taking a year’s hiatus to have her first child. The new mother, who was snapped up by Victoria’s Secret in 2007, crowned an official Angel in 2010 and honoured with wearing the $10 million fantasy bra in the 2013 show, will join fellow Angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Josephine Skriver, Lais Ribeiro, Martha Hunt, Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio, Stella Maxwell and Taylor Hill. A host of new faces, including Grace Bol, Vanessa Moody and Dasha Khlystun, will also join a host of models who have walked for the lingerie giant before, but have yet to be granted Angel status.
Who isn’t walking?
Though it was announced in August that Behati Prinsloo would return to the runway alongside fellow South African beauty Swanepoel, the model took to Instagram in September to tell fans that she is expecting her second child with husband Adam Levine. “I promised Behati I wouldn’t say a word until she did,” senior creative at Victoria’s Secret, Ed Razek, commented via his own social media. “Bee, I kept my promise! We will miss you in Shanghai! Love you and very happy for you, Adam and Dusty!”
Though the model and reality star has walked in the brand’s two previous shows, saying, “it’s always been a dream of mine,” Jenner will not join BFF Bella Hadid in Shanghai. The reason? She’s an ambassador for Italian lingerie brand La Perla, so it is thought that it would be a conflict of interest for her. When fellow models were confirming their attendance in the 2017 Victoria’s Secret showcase, Jenner posted the following Instagram picture.
Hadid took to Twitter just one week before the show to share the news that she would not be walking with her seven million followers. The shock announcement follows her previous statement on Instagram that it was “a dream come true” to be asked to walk for the lingerie brand for the third time. It is thought that Visa issues are the reason for her absence. Models from Russia have also had similar difficulties obtaining Chinese Visas and will not be joining the VS team in Shanghai.
Who will wear the Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra?
To be chosen as the wearer of the Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra is seen as incredibly prestigious among the Angels. Lais Ribeiro will wear this year’s $2 million Mouwad design, which is handset with diamonds, yellow sapphires and blue topaz in 18-karat gold and took over 350 hours to create. The Brazilian beauty will follow in the footsteps of Gisele Bündchen, Tyra Banks, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, and Adriana Lima by wearing the Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra, which, she says, makes her “feel so powerful”.
