The beautiful Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is an annual fashion show sponsored by and featuring Victoria’s Secret, the #1 lingerie brand in the world in terms of market share. Victoria’s Secret uses the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show to promote and market its sexy lingerie products (bras, panties, and sleepwear) in high profile venues and locations.

The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is a lavish event with elaborate costumed lingerie, varying music by leading entertainers, and set design according to the different themes running within the incredibly sexy lingerie fashion show. The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show attracts hundreds of celebrities and entertainers, with special performers and acts every year. Each year, approximately twenty to fifty of the world’s top fashion models are selected to perform in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. In a typical year, this includes about a half dozen women under contract to Victoria’s Secret, known as Victoria’s Secret Angels (past Victoria’s Secret Angels include famous Victoria’s Secret supermodels Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Lais Ribeiro, Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Martha Hunt, Sara Sampaio, Romee Strijd, Stella Maxwell, Taylor Hill, Josephine Skriver, Barbara Palvin, Alexina Graham, Grace Elizabeth, and Leomie Anderson.

American network television broadcasts the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in the evenings, generally during late November or early December of each year, and just before Christmas and the end of year holidays. The first few Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows in the 1990’s were held in the days preceding Valentine’s Day to promote the Victoria’s Secret lingerie brand for this holiday due to its romantic theme (they were also not aired on national television). In the years 1999 and 2000, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was webcast on the Internet for the very first time. Beginning in 2001, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows were moved ahead of the Christmas holiday season. Also in 2001, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show made its network television broadcast debut on ABC (from 2002 to 2017 the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was broadcast on CBS, but it moved back to ABC in 2018).

The famous Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has been held at a variety of locations in different cities including Miami, Los Angeles, Cannes (a resort town on the French Riviera), Paris, London, and Shanghai in China. The first four Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows (1995-1998) were held at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, but after it became a televised fashion event, it has most often been held at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City.

The Story Of Famous Fashion Model Romee Strijd | Supermodel Romee Strijd Modeling Career & Biography

Dutch supermodel Romee Strijd insists she has the “typical” discovery story, but her fashion modeling career is anything but ordinary. Beautiful Dutch fashion model Romee Strijd was first scouted while shopping with her mother in Amsterdam, but the shy, young model turned down the opportunity. Years later, Romee Strijd’s interest in fashion modeling grew and she reached out to the agent, effectively starting her fashion modeling career into what eventually would become anything but ordinary.

Beautiful Dutch supermodel Romee Strijd was born on July 19, 1995 in Zoetermeer, South Holland, the Netherlands. The Holland born fashion model quickly made a name for herself, booking high profile fashion shows like Louis Vuitton and Prada in her first fashion week season. To date, she has walked the fashion runway for Moschino, Fendi, Chanel, Balmain, Lanvin, Dolce & Gabanna, Alexander Wang, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Isabel Marant, Celine, and Saint Laurent to name only a handful fashion brands. Beautiful Dutch supermodel Romee Strijd has also appeared in fashion advertising campaigns for Victoria’s Secret, Marchesa, Alexander McQueen, and Donna Karan, among other famous fashion brands. Perhaps most notably in her fashion modeling career, beautiful Dutch fashion model Romee Strijd was chosen as a newcomer to the Victoria’s Secret fashion show in 2014. The following year, she was named a Victoria’s Secret Angel alongside legendary supermodels Alessandra Ambrosio (Brazil) and Candice Swanepoel (South Africa).

Dutch supermodel Romee Strijd has sat for famous fashion photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin (both from the Netherlands), and also for Mario Testino (an extremely famous Peruvian fashion photographer), and is well known for her beautiful, infectious smile. Famous fashion model Romee Strijd has also modeled in fashion editorials for British, German, Spanish, Dutch, and Japanese Vogue. In 2016, Romee Strijd appeared on the cover of Vogue España with other Victoria’s Secret Angels, and most recently she was photographed by Dutch photographer Jan Welters for her solo cover of Dutch Vogue. Recently, beautiful Dutch fashion model Romee Strijd was the face of MICHAEL Michael Kors, starring in the beautiful Michael Kors fashion campaign alongside Victoria’s Secret Angel Taylor Hill.

The 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Fittings

Above: Candice Swanepoel’s 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Fitting.

Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel shocked her millions of fans around the world last year when she announced she was pregnant, just a few weeks after walking in the 2017 Victoria’s Secret fashion show in Shanghai China. Yes, as in she actually walked the Victoria’s Secret fashion show while pregnant and we were none the wiser. This will be Candice Swanepoel’s 11th Victoria’s Secret fashion show, but Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel still gets excited year after year.

“I think my favorite part is being together will all the girls. You really appreciate girl time and being able to be with your friends and getting glamorous a lot more when you’re a mommy.”

KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa native Candice Swanepoel was discovered in a Durban flea market by a local modeling scout. Perhaps best known as a leading Victoria’s Secret Angel, Candice Swanepoel has appeared in the annual televised Victoria’s Secret fashion show for seven consecutive years (Candice Swanepoel had to take time off to give birth to her two beautiful babies), and famously opened the Victoria’s Secret fashion show in 2011. Candice Swanepoel has also been featured in innumerable print and television fashion campaigns for Victoria’s Secret (the world’s #1 lingerie company and a subsidiary of L Brands), including a highly coveted Victoria’s Secret television commercial during the 2015 Super Bowl championship football game.

Supermodel Candice Swanepoel has also been featured in fashion campaigns for Givenchy and the first ever Givenchy Jeans line. Candice Swanepoel has also appeared in beautiful fashion advertisements (fashion ads) for Tom Ford, Versace, Miu Miu, Rag & Bone, Prabal Gurung, Oscar de la Renta, and Brian Atwood, as well as Nike, Diesel, Topshop, and Juicy Couture, among other major fashion brands known around the world.

Select pret-a-porter runway appearances by Candice Swanepoel include Givenchy, Christian Dior, Chanel, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, Bottega Veneta, Stella McCartney, Elie Saab, Jason Wu, Diane Von Furstenberg, Michael Kors, and Marc Jacobs. Supermodel Candice Swanepoel has also been ranked many times throughout her fashion modeling career as one of the highest paid fashion models in the world (please visit “The Money Girls” section of our fashion modeling website in order to view the list of the highest paid fashion models in the world).

For full disclosure, our parent company and/or affiliated firms have a small percentage ownership in L Brands, owner of Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works, but we do not represent fashion model Candice Swanepoel. In addition, our fashion modeling agency also receives compensation for promoting the Victoria’s Secret brand around the world.

Speaking with ET Canada’s Carlos Bustamante backstage at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show in New York City, Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo opens up about returning to the runway after welcoming her second child.

Adam Levine Was the Most Excited Husband Watching Behati Prinsloo’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Return

Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo made her return to the Victoria’s Secret fashion show runway today after taking a two year hiatus (during which time she had her and her husband Adam Levine’s two daughters, Dusty Rose Levine and Gio Grace Levine). But Behati Prinsloo was super excited to have singer Adam Levine watching her during the show’s evening taping, and he clearly was very excited to see her back on the fashion runway.

It is that time of the year again, after hundreds of top fashion models from around the world have gone through the audition and casting process for the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show. Unfortunately for most of these top fashion models, only a few have come out with angel wings for the famous Victoria’s Secret fashion show.

The Victoria’s Secret legendary Angels take to the runway for the 2018 Victoria’s Secret fashion show (also known as the Victoria’s Secret holiday special), showcasing an all star lineup of musical guests, including Bebe Rexha, The Chainsmokers, Halsey, Kelsea Ballerini, Leela James, Rita Ora, Shawn Mendes, and The Struts. Merging fashion, fantasy, and entertainment, the Victoria’s Secret fashion show is considered to be the world’s most famous fashion show, and is expected to be seen this year in more than 190 countries and territories.

The Victoria’s Secret fashion show is the world’s biggest fashion event, and will be returning to New York City this year after recent productions in London, Paris, and Shanghai China. The Victoria’s Secret fashion show is a year long production, and 2018 promises to be the most ambitious yet according to Victoria’s Secret executive producer Ed Razek. This year, Victoria’s Secret has more musical guests, more fashion, and more beautiful stories than ever before, and of course, approximately 60 of the world’s top fashion models.

Most of the official Victoria’s Secret Angels will be walking at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show: Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, Elsa Hosk, Sara Sampaio, Lais Ribeiro, Josephine Skriver, Stella Maxwell, Jasmine Tookes, Taylor Hill, Romee Strijd, and Martha Hunt. The only major Victoria’s Secret models that will not be present are Victoria’s Secret Angels Lily Aldridge since she is expecting her second child, and Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio, who confirmed last year that she would be hanging up her wings after 12 years of walking for the Victoria’s Secret brand.

Joining Victoria’s Secret Angels Adriana Lima, Behati Prinsloo (back after a three year hiatus), Candice Swanepoel, Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Josephine Skriver, Lais Ribeiro, Martha Hunt, Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio, Stella Maxwell, and Taylor Hill will be internationally known sisters Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid, as well as world famous fashion model Kendall Jenner.

Only one show on television brings together the biggest names in music and the top fashion models from around the globe for an exciting hour of entertainment, beautiful fashion, and style. This year, Victoria’s Secret (the #1 lingerie brand in the world in terms of global sales and market share) added about 18 new models to the Victoria’s Secret lineup. Some Victoria’s Secret models who took a hiatus for a few years will be making a comeback, while regulars like Devon Windsor, Kelly Gale, Georgia Fowler, and Leomie Anderson will also be present at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show this year.

Below is the official Victoria’s Secret model list for the 2018 Victoria’s Secret fashion show:

1. Kendall Jenner (United States) with model earnings for the year of $22 million dollars.

The 23 year old supermodel (born in Los Angeles, California) has over 98 million Instagram followers, more than double any other model on the list. Kendall Jenner has turned digital fame into millions of dollars, advertising for cosmetics giant Estée Lauder, lingerie brand La Perla and sneaker maker Adidas, among other world class fashion brands. Non-modeling money from her family’s E! reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, social media endorsements, and her Kendall + Kylie clothing line added to her total earnings.

2. Gigi Hadid (United States) with model earnings for the year of $9.5 million dollars.

Thanks to her 38 million Instagram followers, the 23 year old fashion model (born in Los Angeles, California) can command top dollars from brands eager to reach her young fans. A selling point herself, Gigi Hadid has her own collections with makeup giant Maybelline, Vogue eyewear, and Tommy Hilfiger. With her sister Bella Hadid, the Hadid sisters are the first siblings to both be included on the lists of the highest paid models in the world (the world’s highest paid models).

Highlights From The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show: A Night To Remember With The Most Beautiful And Famous Fashion Models In The World | Victoria’s Secret Models Exclusive Interviews Backstage

The Beautiful Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Models Modeling In Shanghai China.
The Beautiful Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Models Modeling In Shanghai China.

Above: The Beautiful Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Models Modeling In Shanghai China Modeling In Sexy Victoria’s Secret Lingerie.

2017 will be remembered as the year that Victoria’s Secret expanded into China by opening its first full store in Shanghai with additional stores later opening in Chengdu and Beijing. Victoria’s Secret already has 26 Victoria’s Secret Beauty & Accessory stores in China plus another five in Hong Kong (these Victoria’s Secret Beauty & Accessory stores that already exist in China are small shops focused on beauty products and accessories with no bras or panties being sold). China is expected to equal if not exceed the United States in Victoria’s Secret sales in the long term, and because of this huge potential Victoria’s Secret parent company L Brands (NYSE: LB) decided that having a fashion show in China would make the world take notice of their aspirations for global expansion, specially into the Asian markets.

At one point, having a fashion show in China must have seemed like a good idea, maybe the best of all ideas. After all, Victoria’s Secret (the world’s #1 lingerie brand) was making a major push to expand its business around the world, so having the 2017 Victoria’s Secret fashion show in Shanghai China made perfect sense, and asking what could possibly go wrong by having the world’s most famous and prestigious fashion show in China might have seemed absurd, or even borderline ridiculous. However, as it turned out, basically many things went wrong in China.

Above: Highlights From The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show: Leslie Odom Jr Performs “Forever Young” And “Winter Song” With Classical Pianist Yundi Li At The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Broadway star Leslie Odom Jr. and classical pianist Yundi Li light up the Victoria’s Secret fashion runway in Shanghai China as they perform “Forever Young” and “Winter Song” while the extremely beautiful Victoria’s Secret Angels walk down the Victoria’s Secret fashion runway.

Singing superstar Katy Perry, scheduled to be a performer, was reportedly denied a visa by the Chinese government, and many models scheduled to make appearances ran into similar issues. Making things worse, it was reported that the Victoria’s Secret team in Shanghai China was prohibited from sending out press releases until they had been reviewed by the government. Then celebrities and fashion journalists assigned to cover the event had to pull out when they weren’t given Chinese visas.

Soon, even supermodels and famous models were getting their Chinese visas denied. American fashion model Gigi Hadid (who has almost 40 million Instagram followers), who was scheduled to appear at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, was reportedly denied a visa. Soon after, Russian and Ukrainian Victoria’s Secret models were denied entry into China without any explanation.

Even relatively simple tasks turned into a struggle. It was even reported that Chinese authorities scrutinized television crews trying to film the Victoria’s Secret models outside Shanghai’s Mercedes-Benz Arena as though they were national security threats. Talk about being paranoid (a fashion show filled with the world’s most beautiful women walking in sexy lingerie is probably the furthest thing from politically sensitive material that one could possibly imagine).

Above: Highlights From The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show: The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Featuring Victoria’s Secret Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio.

To be fair, the 2017 Victoria’s Secret fashion show was a beautiful fashion show featuring famous singers singing while the world’s most beautiful women walked down the runway. Highlights of the 2017 Victoria’s Secret fashion show included supermodel Karlie Kloss (who went platinum blonde) making her big return in Shanghai after taking a break from working with the brand and supermodel Candice Swanepoel doing the same after sitting out last year after having her baby son.

Harry Styles (originally a member of the famous British boy band One Direction), Miguel, Yundi Li, and Jane Zhang performed while the extremely beautiful Victoria’s Secret models walked on the runway. Then there were the Balmain outfits designed by Olivier Rousteing (a famous French fashion designer and the creative director of Balmain), and of course, no Victoria’s Secret fashion show would be complete without the Fantasy Bra (made from diamonds and gems worth millions of dollars) and worn this year by Brazilian fashion model Lais Ribeiro.

It’s the time of year where a new class of Victoria’s Secret Angels gets its wings. We may be a few weeks away from the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but preparations are well underway for the most extravagant, glittery catwalk of them all. (And, after months of secrecy, the brand finally confirmed and Instagram their models will hit the runway in Shanghai, China.)
It hasn’t been all smooth sailing, though: Despite having been confirmed to walk the show this year, several models have reportedly run into trouble securing their visas to travel to China. Gigi Hadid confirmed this week that she’d have to bow out of the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show; models Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva, Irina Sharipova, and Dasha Khlystun allegedly were denied the required paperwork, too.
Scroll down to see every model confirmed so far, from seasoned Angels to newcomers.
