It is almost time for the biggest fashion spectacle in a year. The Victoria’s Secret show is only a month away. The good thing is that the actual shooting of the event happens on November 8, which means we will get a first look next week. Each year the show is more opulent and more extravagant.
“The show is a year-long production, and 2018 promises to be our most ambitious yet. We have more musical guests, more fashion and more stories than ever; and, of course, 60 of the world’s top models.”- said Ed Razek, the executive producer of VS.
We are all super-excited to see the many familiar faces on the catwalk, as well as the gorgeous debutants. Here are all the details you have to know about the happening so that you are in pace with the latest news.
In the past few years, VS made it a habit of traveling in many different places around the world. This year, the huge event will happen in New York. The Big Apple was previously the host of the show in 2015 and several other times as well. Last year, the bombshell models walked a runway set in Shanghai. The whole happening stirred a lot of controversies. First of all, a large number of the models were denied a visa to China, including Gigi Hadid. Katy Perry who was supposed to be the main performer did not get a visa. London, Paris, Cannes, Miami, Los Angeles are just a part of the other cities that have hosted a Victoria’s Secret show. The first-ever happening was staged in New York back in 1995. The same town was the host for the following four years in a row. The first event away from the Big Apple took place in Cannes.
The event will happen much earlier than expected. On November 8, all of the Angels will walk the enormous stage in New York. In the past, the Victoria’s Secret show happened during late November and aired at the beginning of December. This year you can expect to see it on December 2 on ABC at 10 p.m. ET.
The line-up of performers is one of the most exciting things about the night. Fans eagerly wait for months to find out more about who will take the stage among Angels. In 2018 the show will feature a record number of performers. Rita Ora, Bebe Rexha, Halsey, The Chainsmokers, The Struts, Shawn Mends and Kelsea Ballerini are the celebrity names that will take over the stage that night.
After a stunning collaboration with Balmain last year, VS is now working closely with British designer Mary Katrantzou. Mary celebrated a 10-year anniversary since she established her label with the Spring/Summer 2019 runway show in London last month. The two brands already gave a sneak peek of the designs. The best thing is that they will be selling a limited edition collection at VS stores. Katrantzou is known for her love of bold prints and colors. All we can say is that the 2018 event will definitely be a fun one.
This year’s model line-up features the best and most in-demand faces in the industry. The Hadid sisters already confirmed their presence, together with bestie Kendall Jenner. Behati Prinsloo is finally making a comeback on the catwalk. Winnie Harlow is making her VS debut this year together with a number of other gorgeous faces. Barbara Palvin, Toni Garrn, Karlie Kloss are just a part of the long-legged beauties you will be gushing over. Let’s not forget about the Angels Adriana Lima, Sara Sampaio, Josephine Skriver, Elsa Hosk and many more.
