The angels are back, strutting down the runway in the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show
This year, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show returned to New York City after two years abroad.
Every year, the Victoria’s Secret show brings its famous bejewelled Angels together for what is consistently a glittery catwalk extravaganza. It’s the most-watched fashion event of the year
As usual, the lineup for this year’s show included some of the world’s most famous models, as well as 18 newcomers to the event, who turned heads in over 90 different looks.
Ten of the brand’s 14 Angels — models who have special contracts with Victoria’s Secret — also graced the lingerie brand’s runway.+
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2018 models included Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, runway regulars Cindy Bruna, Devon Windsor, Leomie Anderson and Shanina Shaik. German model Toni Garrn returned to the show after a five-year absence, while both Winnie Harlow and Duckie Thot made their Victoria’s Secret debuts.
Also of note is rising star Kelsey Merritt, who made history as the first Filipino woman to walk the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Other first-timers include Maia Cotton, Sofie Rovenstine and Iesha Hodges.
Bebe Rexha, The Chainsmokers, Halsey, Kelsea Ballerini, Rita Ora, Shawn Mendes and The Struts comprised the all-star line-up of musical guests.
“The show is a year-long production, and 2018 promises to be our most ambitious yet,” said Victoria’s Secret executive producer Ed Razek. “We have more musical guests, more fashion and more stories than ever; and, of course, 60 of the world’s top models.”
The costumes worn by the models on the Victoria’s Secret runway range from the relatively simple pairing of lingerie and stilettos to sculptural wings and elaborate headdresses. Elsa Hosk was chosen to wear the Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra.
