It's not even December yet, but the holiday season is already in full-swing. Everyone has their annual winter traditions, and one of our favorites is the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show! This year, the angels are taking their talents to Shanghai, where they will strut on the longest runway and in front of the largest crowd in the show's history.
The VS fashion show takes an entire year to plan, and the event consists of six themed segments. This year's themes include Goddesses, Winter's Tale, Porcelain Angel, Nomadic Angels, VS Pink Millennial Nation, and Punk Angel, which features looks designed by Balmain's Olivier Rousteing. This collaboration with Balmain is the first time that Victoria's Secret has included a named designer on its runway. The 'Champagne Nights' Fantasy Bra will be worn by Brazilian beauty Lais Ribeiro in the Goddesses section, and it's adorned with $2-million worth of diamonds, sapphires, and topaz!
The lineup is comprised of 41 models, including 13 of the 14 resident angels. The Shanghai show has been surrounded by controversy, as several models & musical guest Katy Perry were denied visas by the Chinese government. For the models who did make it China, they've spent the last several months getting in tip-top shape for the big event! The wings alone can weigh up to 60 lbs. Victoria's Secret has launched their #TrainLikeAnAngel series on Youtube and other social media platforms to showcase the angel's workouts.
