It’s fast approaching! What you ask? Probably the biggest Fashion Show on Earth. The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. And every year it seems like the show gets bigger, bolder and sexier!
Every year VS tries to outperform itself from the previous year; and this year is no exception! Last year’s VS Show as we all know took place in the “City of Love”, Paris. This year, “The VS Fashion Show 2017” is taking place in Shanghai on 28th November.
This year’s VSFS is going to be particularly an exciting one, since it has collaborated with French Fashion House “Balmain” to create some elaborate costumes for the show. Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing will be designing a capsule collection that would be the highlight of the show.
Models from every part of the continent descend upon to walk for one of Fashion’s Biggest Show. Apart from the familiar old faces that would be walking this year, there are many new faces joining the squad. So get ready for plenty of behind the scene actions, live Pink carpet interviews and the making of the show.
You can expect sexy, lingerie wearing models strutting on the ramp, with their perfectly glossy hair and flawless makeup, winking and blowing kisses away. So while we wait for the show in the days to come, let’s take a trip down the memory lane, to relive and reminisce some of the best VSFS moments and predict the future to come.
A Beautiful Fantasy
Last year, it was Jasmine Tookes who wore the $3,000,000 “Bright Night” Fantasy Bra. This year, it has been announced that 27yr old Lais Ribeiro would be sporting the $2,000,000 “Champagne Nights” Fantasy Bra. In the past, models like Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell, Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum, Lily Aldridge and more have had the honor of wearing the “Fantasy Bra”. Victoria’s Secret contracts a renowned jewelry designer to craft the bra to be used as a focal point for promoting the fashion show.
Red Hot Fantasy Bra
VSFS will never be the same without Gisele but during her time as an Angel, Gisele Ruled! In 2000, Gisele Bundchen wore the most expensive Fantasy Bra in the history of the show ever! The “Red Hot” Fantasy Bra was covered in 300 carats of Thai Rubies, set with diamonds and semi-precious stones and was valued at $15,000,000! She also got to wear the Fashion bra again five years later in 2005, valued at $12,500,000 and was called the “Sexy Splendor” Fantasy Bra.
The Royal Fantasy Bra
Making her VS return this year after giving birth to her first child, Candice is ready to set the stage on fire. South African beauty Candice Swanepoel was chosen to wear the 2013 “Royal” Fantasy Bra, which was valued at $10,000,000. Candice joined the league of very few models, which before her have had the privilege to wear a Fantasy Bra which was worth $10 million and more.
The Dream Angels Fantasy Bra
Dream Angels indeed! In 2014, Victoria’s Secrets two most favorite angels, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio walked the runway together wearing the “Dream Angels” Fantasy Bra. Valued at $2,000,000 each, the Brazilian beauties have been part of the VS show since the year 2000. There is no denying that both these gorgeous ladies can be pronounced as the true ambassadors of the VS brand.
Performances that became an internet sensation
With only a few days left for the show, there’s still that mystery of which artists would be performing this year. Over the many years, plenty of high profile artists like Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Justine Bieber have sung their hit songs on the VSFS. In recent years, thanks to the internet, we’ve been blessed to witness some of the best/hilarious moments in the VS history, that went on to become the most talked about.
Gisele the Diva
It’s been over 10yrs and Gisele’s iconic walk during the 2006 VSFS is still talked about! Who could forget Gisele stepping onto the ramp, with her wings spread wide, walking like a Diva that she is and completely Alienating Timberlake?
Taylor and her Squad
Taylor Swift performed at the VSFS in 2013 and again in 2014 singing two of her super hits, “Trouble” and “Blank Space”. The whole show seemed like a T-swift concert wherein she invited her model besties to walk on stage.
Ariana’s Scare Face
It wasn’t Ariana Grande’s night! While performing her hit single Ariana was accidently smacked on the face with an Angel’s wings in 2014 which later went onto become a favorite internet meme.
The Future Angels of VS
While there are many gorgeous models, very few reach the league of extraordinary modeling. Elsa Hosk, Karlie Kloss, Grace Elizabeth, Josephine Skriver, Jasmine Tookes, Martha Hunt, Liu Wen, Ming Xi, Sui He; are just a few names of the very deserving models who hold the crown to become the next big VS sensation. Here’s who we at FASH think are the faces to watch out for.
Taylor Hill, 21
At the age of 21, Taylor Hill is the youngest VS Angel. Since her VS debut in 2014 in the VSFS Pink segment, this year will be Taylor’s 3rd year walking for the brand on the runway. Taylor was also named “2015 Model of the Year”. She was discovered at the age of 14 by a modeling scout and we believe there’s a lot more of Taylor to watch out for in the coming years.
Sara Sampaio, 26
This Portuguese bombshell was discovered at the age of 15 and made her VSFS Debut in the year 2013. Sara has graced the covers of many magazines, including “Sports Illustrated”. She’s been voted as one of the “Top Sexiest Models” in fashion industry currently. This will be Sara’s 5th year walking for VS, and 3rd as an angel since receiving her Wings! Smart, sexy, beautiful and confident; Sara is the whole VS package.
Gigi Hadid, 22
Gigi Hadid, known as one of the popular “Insta models” will be strutting and spilling her magic this year for the 3rd time. With a fan following of millions and counting on Instagram and Twitter, Gigi has been a popular favorite with the young crowd and this makes her the perfect ambassador for the brand to get the millennial girls hooked to VS lingerie. This year was super busy for Gigi as she was seen walking for plenty of High Fashion Labels during fashion week (Practicing for that VS walk we suppose). Although not joined by fellow model and bestie Kendall Jenner this year; the blonde beauty will be walking along side sister Bella Hadid, for whom this will be her 2nd year walking for the brand.
