The date of the legendary Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015 has already been revealed. It will take place on November 10 in Lexington Armory in New York, but it will be broadcast on TV only a month later, on December 8. The reason of leaving such a large gap is not known yet but bearing in mind that this year the iconic lingerie brand is celebrating its 20th anniversary a lot more surprises are to be expected from the lingerie giant.
This year Victoria’s Secret has officially announced about its going back to the roots, leaving London and returning to New York. “New York City was the site of the first ever Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 1995, and holds a special place in our history and our hearts,” said Sharen Jester Turney, Victoria’s Secret Chief Executive Officer. The brand has also announced the names of the musical guests to perform at the show. Ellie Goulding, who will replace pop diva RiRi this year, Selena Gomez and the Weeknd will be those to energize the Victoria’s Secret Angels on the runway.
The complete list of the Victoria’s Secret Angels and models already announced to walk for the 2015 show includes 44 different names. We somehow calmed down learning that the faithful and regular angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo and Candice Swanepoel will keep on grandiosely shaking their massive wings on the runway while Lily Aldridge will be wearing the $2 million Fantasy Bra this time. “I’ve been dreaming about this forever,’ she said, adding “I’m so honored to join this list of amazing women that have worn the Fantasy Bra, and I can’t believe that this year is my year”.
While gorgeous Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio will be celebrating their 16th anniversary of being Victoria’s Secret Angels, a range of new names are going to mark their debuts on this glittery catwalk, among them being A-line models and Instagram favorites Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. Gigi Hadid’s excitement was so great that she shared all her emotions on her Instagram account, stating that becoming Victoria’s Secret model had always been her cherished dream and these were the happiest moments of her life. But Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid are not the only fresh faces to walk for the 2015 show. Kate Grigoreva (Russia), Taylor Hill (USA), Elsa Hosk (Sweden), Jac Jagaciak (Poland), Stella Maxwell (UK), Lais Ribeiro (Brazil), Sara Sampaio (Portugal), Romee Strijd (Holland), Jasmine Tookes (USA), and Martha Hunt (USA) are also included in the list of newly-winged Angels.
The non-Angel models Joan Smalls, who has been walking on Victoria’s Secret runway for four year in a row and Rachel Hilbert, the PINK spokesmodel will again rock the 2015 show.
Regretfully, this year Victoria’s Secret has also suffered great losses since two of the most stunning Angels, Doutzen Kroes and Karlie Kloss have dropped out of the winged list. Jourdan Dunn will not shake her wings on the catwalk either this year, leaving us in some doubts about disagreements arisen between the model and the lingerie enterprise. Igrid Agren, Eniko Mihalik, Jourdan Dunn, Isabeli Fontana, Kelly Gale, Kasia Struss, Blanca Padilla, Grace Mahary, Ieva Laguna, Bregje Heinen and Imaan Hammam are also missing in the Angel list.
What is left to us now is to arm ourselves with great patience until November 10 to see a couple of shots from the show and with much greater patience till December 8 to see the complete star-studded fashion show on CBS. Great Surprises a la Victoria’s Secret are still to come!
