The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air on December 2nd, but we’re sharing a sneak peek. Check out the best–and craziest–looks from the show!
The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show combines feathers, glitter, pop music, and underwear into something that’s a little bit Miss Universe, a little bit Rose Parade, and a little bit drag cabaret. This models walked the runway with a little help from Bebe Rexha and The Chainsmokers this year. That’s a bit of a step down from past performers like Lady Gaga or Harry Styles!
Although they’re still the leading lingerie brand in the world, Vicky’s has steadily seen profits (and ratings) slip. Parent company L Brands shares lost 72% of their value over the last three years. Ouch! Do you still shop at Victoria’s Secret?
First on the runway were these sporty, athleisure-style looks. From left to right, we have something that looks like “Sexy Quidditch Referee,” followed by Bella Hadid in the word’s tiniest bomber jacket, and a truly weird puffer jacket jumper over a white sports bra. This wasn’t the most impressive or successful part of the show, but things got better from here!
For sheer pageantry and attention to detail, the celestial-themed part of the fashion show wins. Candice Swanpoel wore a mesh bodysuit covered in glittering crystal fringe, while Adriana Lima dressed up as the actual, literal moon. Kendall Jenner looked tall and lanky in an explosion of glittery black stars. Is it my imagination, or is she looking a little more like Kim these days?
It’s not clear if this part of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is meant to be in honor of Outlander, Highlander, or the general concept of Scotland. There was lots of plaid, in any case. It says something about Gigi Hadid’s modeling skills (center) that she almost pulls this look off!
The angels modeled a series of floral-patterned looks and…drag chutes? Not certain what’s going on with the middle look here–it’s like they tethered the poor model to a slowly deflating hot air balloon and said “good luck!”
Winnie Harlow (far right) showed off a head-to-toe floral number that had almost nothing to do with underwear. But she looks happy to be on the VS runway!
For the big finale, the models were covered in feathers and sparkles. Adriana Lima (center) seems absolutely delighted that this will be the last time she ever has to walk in a Victoria’s Secret Fashion show. The 37-year-old mother of two announced she was retiring from the catwalk this year. It seems a shame that they didn’t let her wear the giant wings for old time’s sake.
