The action packed evening was held in Paris, the City of Love and the fashion capital of the world, on November 30th at the Grand Palais as a bevy of sexiest models looking smoldering hot sporting the brand’s all new collection during the sexist night of the year – as referred to often by most! A number of Victoria Secret Fashion Show models and Angels walked down the ramp in the City of Lights, adding to its splendor in every way with an honored Angel Elsa Hosk, flagging off the event with the first catwalk of the evening while Angel Jasmine Tookes was the privileged one to exhibit the 2016 Fantasy Bra, encrusted with 9000 gemstones mainly diamonds and valued at a whopping $3 million, making it the event’s most special attraction! The Fantasy Bra honor was fulfilled by Lily Aldridge in 2015, who was also a part of the team of models this year. However, none of the Fantasy Bras off late have been able to beat the brilliance and magic of the Red Hot Fantasy Bra worn by Gisele Bundchen in 2000 that was priced at a mind-boggling $15 million, making it the most expensive lingerie ever made till date!
Superstar models, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner were back this year to the Victoria Secret Fashion Show this year, after debuting at the event in 2015. A few other beauties who scorched the ramp included Gigi’s sister Bella Hadid, Adriana Lima, Stella Maxwell, Alessandra Ambrosio, Josephine Skriver, Lais Ribeiro, Romee Strijd, Marhta Hunt, Taylor Hill and Sara Sampaio apart from Els Hosk, Jasmine Tookes and Lily Aldridge as mentioned earlier. However, Brazilian beauty Adriana Lima continued to be a hot favorite even at 35! A Victoria’s Secret Angel since 2000, she had fans raving about her performance even this year. With all the grace, years of experience and confidence, this beauty pulled off her act wearing red and turquoise thong lingerie, pleather skirt and boots and black angel wings with élan this year again and she is certainly one of the reasons, for you to witness Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2016!
Moving on to the Hadid sisters, who were as impressive as before, Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2016 had the sisters strike an emotional chord, with Bella saying, ““This is us happy. We’re a really emotional family.” On her part Gigi in an interview before the event said, “I am so proud of [Bella] for getting this show because she worked so hard. For us to be able to do it together, and be the first sisters in the show, we’re really, really honored. It’s amazing to be able to experience all this and to be so excited for each other. She’s my best friend and it’s so crazy to be here together.” The Hadid sisters both walked the ramp twice this season, with Bella being accompanied by ex-boyfriend The Weekend as he performed his new hit ‘Starboy’ and Gigi getting her first pair of Angel Wings.
Lily Aldridge was equally noteworthy at the Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2016 as she walked the ramp for the renowned franchise for the eighth year. The Victoria Secret Angel revealed that making products from Sakara Life, an organic and plant based company a part of her life was the secret behind the beautiful and fit body. According to her, “Having the Sakara meals delivered to me makes it so easy to be healthy. I’m constantly on the go, working, traveling, being a mom! It’s so nice to have Sakara to eat healthy during my busiest moments and keep me feeling strong.”
We cannot miss talking about Kendall Jenner as we speak about the Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2016. Although the super gorgeous model was a stunner during the show, all was not well on the personal front with all her near and dear ones including sister Kylie Jenner and mom Kris Jenner missing her coveted modeling event!
Along with super sexy models torching the ramp with one of the most enviable collections of lingerie, the 2016 event also had the presence of Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and The Weekend entertaining the audiences as they crooned their runaway hit numbers from latest albums. The Weekend’s performances included numbers from his new album ‘Starboy’ while Bruno added to the excitement of the evening by lending his voice as music for the Victoria Secret catwalk.
