The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is always one of the most highly anticipated fashion events of the year.
This year’s show is less than a month away and the brand has been fairly tight-lipped about what to expect. However, what has been revealed suggests that this is going to be just as grand as previous shows.
The show will make it’s grand return to New York City on November 8.
This is the first time the show has returned to New York City since 2015, after spending 2016 in Paris, France, and 2017 in Shanghai, China.
Though it takes place on November 8, the show won’t air until December 2 on ABC.
It airs at 10 p.m. EST and has been officially titled the “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Holiday Special.” The show will also be available to stream via several streaming platforms, including the ABC app and YouTube TV.
This is the first time ABC has aired the show since 2001, with CBS airing it in the years following.
Elsa Hosk will be wearing the coveted Fantasy Bra this year.
Kendall Jenner is making her return after skipping last year’s show.
Bella and Gigi Hadid will also be walking in this year’s show.
Several models have been confirmed, including newcomers to the show Winnie Harlow and Duckie Thot.
Also among the newcomers is 22-year-old Kelsey Merritt, who will be the first Filipino woman to walk in the show.
There will also be plenty of familiar faces, including the return of Behati Prinsloo.
She’ll be making her return alongside Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show veterans like Lais Ribeiro, Stella Maxwell, and Martha Hunt.
There will be plenty of musical guests, including Shawn Mendes and Halsey.
Bebe Rexha, Rita Ora, Kelsea Ballerini, The Struts, and The Chainsmokers are also scheduled to perform.
Designer Mary Katrantzou has been tapped to design a section of the show.
Katrantzou is known for her colourful, vibrant prints and we can expect to see her signature style hit the Victoria’s Secret runway this year.
“Everything that Victoria’s Secret creates is about a woman feeling confident and empowered – and also having fun with what she is wearing,” Katrantzou said in a statement provided to Harper’s Bazaar. “This collaboration is going to be bold, fun and playful.”
This year’s makeup looks will come courtesy of Charlotte Tilbury.
The beauty mogul revealed the news on Instagram, writing: “Darlings, I am beyond excited to officially announce that I will be doing the MAKEUP for the world-famous, iconic @victoriassecret Fashion Show 2018.”
