From the location to the models walking, all the details on this year’s catwalk extravaganza
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2018 will take place in late November or early December in the heart of New York City. Last year, the lingerie brand took over Asia by storm, and hosted the catwalk show in Shanghai, while in 2016 they left no stone unturned and rolled out the pink carpet in Paris.
This year’s glitzy show will include runway regulars like Martha Hunt, Georgia Fowler, Sara Sampaio, Josephine Skriver, Taylor Hill, and Stella Maxwell. German supermodel Toni Garrn will be returning to the show after a five-year absence, while Canadian model Winnie Harlow will be making her VS debut. Behati Prinsloo will also return to the show after a two-year maternity break. Sadly, top Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio recently announced retirement after walking the glamorous show for 17 years. See the complete line-up of models walking the show here.
The performers for this year’s show have not yet been revealed. Last year, the Sign of the Times singer Harry Styles alongside Miguel performed in Shanghai. In the past, performers have included Lady Gaga, The Weeknd, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and Bruno Mars.
This year’s first VSFS designer collaboration has also been confirmed. Greek-born designer Mary Katrantzou will be designing a capsule collection that will debut on the runway. The London-based designer is known for her colourful bands and use of pattern mixing. Last year the brand partnered with Balmain and brought in spectacular studded, punk-inspired looks on the runway.
One lucky angel will be chosen to wear the Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra. Last year the honour went to Brazilian model Lais Ribeiro. She wore a £1,524,530 Mouawad design handset with diamonds, yellow sapphires and blue topaz in 18-karat gold.
Charlotte Tilbury is the exclusive makeup sponsor for the New York Show. She revealed via an Instagram post: “I am beyond excited to officially announce that I am the exclusive makeup sponsor of the heavenly, world-famous, iconic Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2018, in one of my favourite cities – New York!”
