Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Airs On CBS
The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show came to Asia for the first time last week. Filmed in Shanghai, 55 A-list models walked the runway in 87 outfits. The show took place in Pudong’s Mercedes-Benz Arena, which emitted Victoria’s Secret’s pink light in an UFO-like shape on the night of the show.
“It was the first time doing it in an arena stadium. The stadium was massive and we could feel the audience presence, and it was so awesome,” said Martha Hunt. “This year we had a whole mosh pit in front fill up. This is closest thing I felt like a rock star and then everybody on stage, the performances. Shanghai was the sexiest city. It’s so fun and felt like being a part of the future.”
What was it like having Harry Styles perform on the show?
“He opened the show to a very sexy collaboration. The first time doing the show with a designer, Balman and it was the punk section,” said Hunt. “The entire lingerie collection will be on sale after the show airs on the 29th and that collection is sick.”
The all-star line-up of Victoria’s Secret Angels will include returning favorites: Candice Swanepoel, Bella Hadid, Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Sara Sampaio, Martha Hunt, Josephine Skriver, Elsa Hosk, Stella Maxwell, Taylor Hill, Maria Borges, Roosmavijn, Megan Williams, Sui He, Frida Ausen, Maggie Lane, Alanna Arrington, Amilna Estevao, Lameka Fox, Grace Elizabeth, Dilone Altagracia, Georgia Fowler, Samile Bermannelli, Leila Nda, Alexia Graham, Daniela Braga, Nadine Leopold, Estelle Chen and Barbara Fialho.
How These Models Got in Shape for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show
What exactly does it take for an Angel to get her wings–err, the right to rock those bedazzled bras? We asked Joe Holder, a Nike trainer and a performance coach at S-10 Training in New York City, just that. After all, when it comes to getting top models in top form, he has become one of the go-to guys. In fact, Holder helped get several women, including Bella Hadid, Cindy Bruna, Maria Borges, Romee Stridj, and Georgia Fowler, in shape for this year’s show. His first response: athletic-based training.
