Tonight, America can watch a new team of Angels get their wings…
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show returns Tuesday night with a runway of famous faces, eye-popping costumes and A-list performers. And thanks to its taping last month, we have the early scoop as to what viewers can expect from the evening, a hybrid of a rock concert, lingerie commercial and Carnival-esque parade.
Here’s what to look for during this year’s show:
Some familiar supermodel favorites
Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio — they’re all familiar supermodel faces you’ll see in full Angels gear on the catwalk tonight.
Here’s some of the models’ backstage hijinks behind-the-scenes of this evening’s show:
Alongside a crop of brand-new Angels
The new names to keep an eye out for tonight: Taylor Hill, Jasmine Tookes, Kate Grigorieva, Elsa Hosk, Lais Ribeiro, Sara Sampaio, Jac Jagaciak, Romee Strijd, Martha Hunt and Stella Maxwell.
Good luck, ladies!
Performances from Ellie Goulding, Selena Gomez and the Weeknd
The VS Fashion Show always books a slate of performers to provide a smouldering soundtrack to the onstage action. This year’s lineup features Selena Gomez and the Weeknd alongside Ellie Goulding, a late addition to the lineup. Rihanna had initially been included in the list of performers, but cancelled her appearance for unknown reasons.
The $2 million fantasy bra
Modeled by Lily Aldridge, the “Fireworks Fantasy Bra” features a detachable belt adorned with over 6,500 precious gems — including diamonds, blue topaz, yellow sapphires and pink quartz — all set in 18-karat gold and valued at a whopping $2 million.
