The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is known for its cast of world-famous Angels and sparkly runway looks. But since the show started in 1995, not every model has been dressed in luxurious lingerie.

Instead, some models have graced the stage wearing everything from football-inspired capes to bustiers that resemble popcorn. Of the multiple Angels who have worn these bold looks, Adriana Lima, Lily Aldridge, and Heidi Klum all made the list.

But in 2019, there may not be new wild looks to appreciate, as the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show as we know it may be ending. On Friday, L Brands CEO Les Wexner told employees in a memo obtained by Business Insider that the brand is rethinking its televised event.CNBC was the first to report the news.

While it’s unclear how the show might change in the future, here’s a look back at some of the wildest looks ever worn the Victoria’s Secret runway.

2002 saw some of the most straps ever worn during a Victoria’s Secret show, when model Ujjwala Raut walked the runway in this ensemble.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show first began in 1995, but it wasn’t until 2002 that the brand began to experiment with looks this bold.

Victoria’s Secret experimented with plastic lingerie when Dewi Driegen wore this ensemble in 2003.

Rather than wearing a traditional bra, this model appears to have worn a white strap with a plastic overlay.

There were also a lot of mismatched prints on the 2003 runway.

Frank Micelotta/Getty ImagesDuring past runway shows, Victoria’s Secret models often walked wearing fur sleeves.

Model Frankie Rayder wore a mix of multiple styles, including a shiny pink bra, detachable fur sleeves, and an unhooked bustier.

After a year-long hiatus, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show returned in 2005 with light-up lingerie.

The two-piece set, matched with a giant pair of Angel wings, brightened the stage and created one of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show’s most memorable moments.

In the 2005 fashion show, Selita Ebanks walked the runway in an ensemble that resembled a satin tie.

Peter Kramer/Getty ImagesThe rest of her look, including her shoes and makeup, was understated.

This barely-there look was a complete contrast to Klum’s light-up lingerie.

Models walking in the 2005 show also wore candy-inspired lingerie.

Peter Krame/Getty ImagesThere have been somewhat similar looks on the runway since.

Model Morgane Dubled’s outfit included netted sleeves, tall striped socks, and heart-decorated heels.

Model √Člise Crombez wore half a blazer on the runway in 2006.

Mark MainzCrombez used a stick as a prop while strutting down the runway.

This unique twist on the off-the-shoulder trend paired a single denim sleeve with a pinstripe vest.

That same year, Heather Marks showed off a food-inspired getup during the fashion show.

Mark Mainz/Getty ImagesMarks wore this outfit during the show’s Pink segment.

Not only did popcorn appear to be spilling out of her bustier, but Marks also carried a diamond-encrusted soda bottle.

During the “Come Fly With Me” portion of the 2006 show, model Andi Muise wore a top that resembled curtains.

Mark Mainz/Getty ImagesThis portion of the show celebrated travel.

She also carried a tea cup down the runway.

In 2007, Selita Ebanks walked the Victoria’s Secret runway in lingerie with gloves resembling hands sewn on top.

Victoria’s Secret designers turned this look into an optical illusion.

Miranda Kerr represented New York City during the 2007 show.

Kerr’s ensemble included a taxi-inspired sweater, Statue of Liberty crown, and a licence plate on her garter band.

The 2008 show’s “Pink Planet” segment showcased baggy shorts alongside form-fitting lingerie.

Alexander Tamargo/Getty ImagesHer shorts read ‘Love,’ a word that is commonly printed on clothes from Pink.

The look of billowing shorts and socks worn by model Abbey Lee Kershaw have not been replicated on the runway since.

Some outfits caused models to struggle while posing in 2008.

Though glamorous from the front, this golden accessory completely blocked Izabel Goulart’s face from the side. But because the show is pre-taped, Victoria’s Secret was able to edit the mishap on TV.

The 2009 fashion show also included a “Pink Planet” segment, during which model Lyndsey Scott wore a balloon train.

Scott wore a corset-style top made from balloons over lingerie from Victoria’s Secret’s sister store, Pink.

During that same segment, Elyse Taylor wore a confusing pair of shorts.

Jason Kempin/Getty ImagesHer fingerless gloves were a departure from the long sleeves Victoria’s Secret models often wear.

Though they initially appear to have been held up by suspenders, Taylor’s shorts actually only had a single strap.

Adriana Lima modelled an athletic look in 2010.

Theo Wargo/Getty ImagesLima ditched fancy heels for sneaker-like shoes.
Not only was her lingerie inspired by a football, but Lima also wore a matching cape that resembled a football field.

Wearing 10 flags attached to her waist, Liu Wen also walked the 2010 runway.

Theo Wargo/Getty ImagesSome flags featured more than one pennant.

This was one of multiple wild outfits worn during the show’s “Game On” portion.

Karlie Kloss’ disco-ball dress in 2011 was one of her boldest looks from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Jamie McCarthy/Getty ImagesYou won’t find sparkly underwear, like the pair Kloss modelled, in Victoria’s Secret stores.

While her dress was arguably the most eye catching aspect of her look, Kloss’ wings, which resembled a neon sign, also stood out.

There was no rain on the 2011 runway, but Izabel Goulart was prepared for a storm.

Jamie McCarthy/Getty ImagesThe rest of her outfit was standard to Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows.

Goulart had two umbrellas strapped to her back, and carried a third one down the runway.

Victoria’s Secret incorporated clown-inspired getups in its 2012 show.

Jamie McCarthy/Getty ImagesModel Barbara Fialho wore the outfit during the show’s ‘Antigravity Pop Circus’ segment.

Barbara Fialho made a pointed hat and frilled collar look glamorous on the runway.

During the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Jessica Hart carried a bike handle, without the rest of the bike, down the runway.

Her heels resembled sneakers, creating an athletic aesthetic.

Jasmine Tookes wore a colourful ensemble in 2013.

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty ImagesShe also wore a cross-body bag that read ‘Say My Name.’

Tookes was one of many models who carried balloons down the 2013 runway, unlike past Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows during which models wore them.

That same year, Jac Jagaciak helped bring social media to the runway with her “OMG” accessory.

Jamie McCarthy/Getty ImagesThis segment was a lot more colourful than others.

The “Pink Network” segment was full of emoji props and social-media inspired accessories.

Lily Aldridge’s runway outfit in 2014 resembled a giant makeup applicator.

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty ImagesAldridge posed with her mini powder puff at the end of the runway,.

Aldridge wore prop powder puffs of varying sizes on her back, while also carrying a real powder puff down the runway.

Megan Puleri was dressed as a Victoria’s Secret astronaut in 2015.

Jamie McCarthy/Getty ImagesThe Pink ensemble was paired with shiny lace-up boots.

This was the only Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show that Puleri walked in.

2015 saw the return of more light-up ensembles to the Victoria’s Secret stage.

Jamie McCarthy/Getty ImagesModel Martha Hunt’s bustier appears to be intricately beaded.

Martha Hunt rocked a neon pair of Angel wings.

Models like Zuri Tibby wore giant hair bows in 2016.

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty ImagesThe rest of her outfit was pretty understated.

The bow appeared to be attached to her hat, and reached all the way down to her shoes.

Maggie Laine wore an even bigger bow during the same show.

Pascal Le Segretain/Getty ImagesShe was one of multiple models to wear tall socks during the show.

Probably too big to wear as a headpiece, Laine walked wearing her giant bow in place of wings.

Those who didn’t wear bows during the 2016 show carried Pink mascot dogs instead.

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty ImagesModels wore white, pink, and black for the ‘Pink Nation’ segment.

Model Dilone looked like she was walking dogs down the runway, using one hand to carry a dog-shaped purse and the other to hold a mini Pink mascot.

During a separate segment of the 2016 show, model Leomie Anderson wore am extremely cropped jacket with a cutout.

The model wore the aqua-blue ensemble over a grey set of lingerie, and completed the look with over-the-knee boots. This runway appearance was one of many that led Anderson to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel in April 2019.

Lily Aldridge walked the runway in another unconventional look in 2017.

Matt Winkelmeyer/Getty ImagesHer lingerie appeared to have been printed with photos of graffiti.

Aldridge wore knee-high denim boots before Jennifer Lopez made headlines for wearing a similar style in 2018.

Also in 2017, Karlie Kloss wore some of the most plaid that has ever hit the Victoria’s Secret runway.

Matt Winkelmeyer/Getty ImagesCapes are frequently worn on the Victoria’s Secret runway.

She wore a pair of knee-high laced denim boots with the ensemble.

In 2018, Gigi Hadid was one of two models to wear a parachute on the runway.

Because the show has not aired yet, it will be interesting to see how Hadid carried this accessory down the runway.

During the same show, Georgia Fowler wore an extremely small puffer coat above her lingerie.
