The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is unlike any other runway event. Each year, millions of viewers across the world tune in to watch the top supermodels strutting their stuff in extravagant undergarments, angel wings and fabulously embellished heels.
Back in the Big Apple
First off, the brand announced via Instagram that the show will return to New York City for 2018, after taking place abroad two years in a row. Last year, Gigi Hadid and Katy Perry, who was originally supposed to perform, were both reportedly denied visas to travel to Shangai, China. The year prior, it was held in Paris.
Girls Just Want to Have Fun
You can expect to see some veteran models return to the runway as well as some new faces. Lais Ribeiro, Martha Hunt, Stella Maxwell, Leomie Anderson, Cindy Bruna, Georgia Fowler, Ming Xi, Grace Elizabeth, Devon Windsor, and more will all walk this year.
Tommy Hilfiger ambassador Winnie Harlow will also make her VS debut while Behati Prinsloo will make her catwalk comeback after skipping the past two years to welcome her two children with Adam Levine.

Hanging Up Her Wings
However, longtime Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio will not be walking this year. Following 17 years of modeling in the show, she confirmed her retirement in an Instagram post last year.
It’s still unclear whether Bella and Gigi Hadid, as well as Kendall Jenner, have been cast in this year’s show. Jenner made her debut in 2016 but didn’t walk last year due to her partnership with competing lingerie brand La Perla.
Victoria’s Secret has yet to announce an official air date, but it will be pre-recorded in early November ahead of its broadcast on CBS.
