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.
