POUTY supermodels, Angel wings, and seriously sexy bras and knickers … welcome to the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
The US lingerie giant will stage its annual runway event in New York today, featuring some of the world’s top-paid models including Kendall Jenner, and Gigi and Bella Hadid, and “Angels” Adriana Lima, Taylor Hill and Jasmine Tookes.
Elsa Hosk will model the 90s-inspired diamond-encrusted $US1 million Fantasy Bra.
This year’s VS runway will feature 60 models, with at least 16 first-timers including Winnie Harlow.
Four Australians will walk in the show — Shanina Shaik, 27, Kelly Gale, 23, Alannah Walton, 18, and Duckie Thot, 23, as well as New Zealand-born Georgia Fowler, 26.
Wearing baby pink silk robes with “Victoria’s Secret 2018” printed in glittering silver on the back, the models have started their pre-show preparation backstage at the Pier 24 venue.
Victoria’s Secret Angel Lima’s future with VS remains unclear after it was revealed this could be her final show after 19 years with the brand.
Apart from Victoria’s Secret’s top-selling bras and knickers, the catwalk will feature about 100 pairs of sky-high heels designed by Brian Atwood, and dewy, fresh-faced makeup looks by British cosmetics brand Charlotte Tilbury, with one artist to every two models.
Shawn Mendes, Halsey and Rita Ora will perform to the star-studded front row, which will reportedly include model mums Kris Jenner and Yolanda Hadid, as well as New York socialite Olivia Palermo, singer Madison Beer, Bella Hadid’s boyfriend The Weeknd and brother Anwar Hadid, and Bethenny Frankel.
Victoria’s Secret is set to open its first full-scale US-style store in Australia at Melbourne this month. It is currently hosting a bra-fitting pop-up at Chadstone Shopping Centre ahead of the launch.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show’s TV special will air in the US on December 2, with an Australian air-date yet to be announced. It is believed to attract about a billion viewers globally
