Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2018: 10 angels you need to watch out for this year
A lot is going on with the angels this year- Adriana Lima is retired from the brand, Behati Prinsloo is making a comeback along with quite a few others.
It's that time of the year again when Victoria's Secret pulls out all stops and goes absolutely ballistic on the runway with incredible handiwork, design, and vision. The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2018 is back for another insane runway show and from the looks of it, it's set to be one of their most extravagant shows ever. While the live show has already taken place, we will only be able to watch it on December 2.
Apart from the extravagant lingerie selection and the drop dead gorgeous models, the show will also feature performances by singers like Shawn Mendes, Rita Ora, The Chainsmokers, Bebe Rexha, Halsey, Leela James, Kelsea Ballerini, and The Struts. A lot is going on with the angels as well - Adriana Lima is retired from the brand, Behati Prinsloo is making a comeback along with quite a few others. What's more - the show features 18 new faces this time! So who is getting the wings? Let's take a look at the angels you need to look out for this year.
1. Kendall Jenner
After facing backlash for her 2016 VS show gig, Kendall Jenner made a comeback to this year's runway. VS, who had given angel wings on her first show with the brand ever was severely criticized for being hypocrites - fans felt that the brand had always given wings to models who were officially angels and Jenner wasn't one at the time. She was a no-show last year as well. She had to miss out on auditions for the show because of a contractual agreement with Italian lingerie brand La Perla. Hopefully, this year, her presence may have done some damage control with fans.
2. Winnie Harlow
This Canadian fashion model is also a public spokesperson on the skin condition - Vitiligo. She gained prominence as a contestant on the 21st cycle of 'America's Next Top Model' and is now ready to rock Victoria's Secret show as well. Although she doesn't get wings this year, she rocked her sexy jumpsuit and pink feathers like there's no tomorrow.
3. Sadie Newman
This is Sadie's first VS show ever, can't tell, can you? This leggy model has one of the sexiest bods in the lineup.
4. Elsa Hosk
Elsa will be wearing the famous Fantasy Bra this year. Made by Atelier Swarovski, it is a bejeweled bralette with a matching body chain. Priced at $1 million, the bra took 930 hours to make and contains 2,100 Swarovski created diamonds and topaz.
5. Barbara Palvin
25-year-old Barbara Palvin is a Hungarian model, actress and since this year, Victoria's Secret angel. This marks her comeback to the runway after taking a hiatus of 6 years. Also, watch out for boyfriend Dylan Sprouse in the audience - he is said to have delivered a Shake Shack for Palvin after the show.
6. Adriana Lima
This will be the last time you will ever see Adriana Lima on Victoria's Secret runway. After 20 years of being with Victoria's Secret, the Brazilian bombshell bid the brand goodbye in an Instagram video on November 9 - a day after the show took place. She wrote alongside a snippet compilation of all of her previous shows, "Dear Victoria, Thank you for showing me the world, sharing your secrets, and most importantly not just giving me wings but teaching me to fly. ❤️ to the best fans in the 🌎! Love, Adriana 💖"
7. Bella Hadid
Bella Hadid outfit looks amazing in the sneak peeks - she's got halo-like wings too!
8. Ming Xi
Ming Xi had her worst nightmare turn to reality when she fell on the runway last year. The 29-year-old model of Chinese descent has been a part of VS since 2013.
9. Kelsey Meritt
Kelsey made history this November when she became the first Filipino woman to walk the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. In her announcement, the 21-year-old model had said unable to contain her excitement, "We did it Philippines! What an honor it is to be the first Filipino to walk in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2018!"
10. Candice Swanepoel
Candice is coming back to the runway after just five months of giving birth to her son Ariel Nicoli in June.
