The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is the MTV VMAs of fashion shows: it’s star-studded and flashy, and you can’t help but like the glam and performances, even if you’re generally not into the catwalk.
The outfits are bedazzled and the wings are so breathtakingly large that the models have to train to support their weight, which might be why the models chosen to walk in this year’s show are already announcing the honor even though the show isn’t until November. But that’s good news for the rest of you, because we’ve gathered up the names of the gorgeous ladies — both those returning and the newbies strutting in their first show — so you can check out the talent well before the show airs. That’s right, this is one runway show that’s broadcast on national television.
After all, the performances feature the top artists of the year. Though last year’s performance by The Weeknd might have been outshone by the tension between the singer and his ex, Bella Hadid, who was walking in the show, you should get excited for top-tier talent in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2017. The date, time and performers were just announced, and the official website for the show touts the fact that this is going to be their biggest show ever. If it’s bigger than Selena Gomez and The Weeknd performing in front of all the Victoria’s Secret Angels in Paris, we’re all in for a treat.
You’ll, of course, see the 14 big names you’ve come to associate with the Victoria’s Secret Angels, like Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio, but you’ll also see some names and faces you don’t recognize yet — and that’s a good thing. The lineup of Victoria’s Secret models has transformed since the heyday of Heidi Klum, as models can now rep any one of their three different lines: classic Victoria’s Secret, VS PINK and Victoria Sport.
