Photos from the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show are already making the rounds. From the looks, performances, and incidents, you have an idea of what to watch out for when the show airs. In case you live under a rock and haven’t seen them, here are some VS Fashion Show highlights!
VS Fashion Show Highlights: The Best and The Worst
There’s a bunch of drama that surrounded the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai. If you recall, the list of models to walk the 2017 VSFS included Gigi Hadid. Visa problems prevented the it girl from making the show. Rumor has it that it was due to a controversial video of her mimicking slanted eyes. Katy Perry, who was supposed to perform on the catwalk, was also unable to get a visa.
The good news is that plenty of fan favorite angels were still able to hit the runway. Adriana Lima, Bella Hadid, and Karlie Kloss put on a great show. Let’s not forget the returning Candice Swanepoel! As for performances, expect stunning stages from Harry Styles, Miguel, Leslie Odom Jr., and Jane Zhang.
End of an Era
While we saw old faces coming back, we also say goodbye to a staple. Rumors were swirling that this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will be the last for Alessandra Ambrosio. After walking for the lingerie brand for 17 shows, the VS Angel said her goodbyes in an emotional Instagram post.
Words cannot describe how grateful I am to have been working for this amazing brand that inspires me and women all over the world. In my wildest dreams I would have never imagined doing 17 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows. Thank you Ed, and all my Victoria’s Secret family for making these memories unforgettable. Last night was so emotional to say goodbye to my #angel sisters but we put on the biggest and best show ever. I could not have done this without all the love and support from my fans. It gives me great pride to be part the Victoria’s Secret movement! I will always be cheering for you! Love you forever ❤️
Ming Xi Takes a Tumble
Runway mishaps aren’t impossible. Whether it’s a wardrobe malfunction or a nasty fall, anything can happen on the catwalk. It’s a hard lesson learned for top Chinese model Ming Xi, who tripped in the middle of her walk.
But with the poise of a true angel and a little help from Gizele Oliveira, Ming Xi was able to finish in style.
However, it’s unlikely that you’ll see the fall in the final cut of the show. Since the Victoria’s Secret models walk twice, footage of Ming Xi’s tumble may not be used.
The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air on November 28 at 10 PM EST. Check your local cable provider for the schedule.
