Inside The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

It’s that wonderful time of year when Angels Sparkle and that sense of cheer fills the air…. yes we’re obviously talking about the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show…. returning to New York…

Victoria’s Secret’s legendary Angels have taken to the runway filming the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Holiday special, with an all-star lineup of musical guest, including Bebe Rexha, The Chainsmokers, Halsey, Kelsea Ballerini, Leela James, Rita Ora, Shawn Mendes and The Struts.

Merging the realms of fashion and fantasy the special is set to air Sunday, December 2nd in the US, so that’s a Monday here but take some time off to watch.

The world’s biggest fashion show returned to New York City with fanfare that only Victoria’s Secret can muster and it was good to see the show home, after recent showings in Paris, Shanghai and London.

“The show is a year-long production, and 2018 promises to be our most ambitious yet,” said Victoria’s Secret executive producer Ed Razek. “We have more musical guests, more fashion and more stories than ever; and, of course, 60 of the world’s top models.”

It was the woman who in every way defines the modern Supermodel Adriana Lima’s last walk for the brand after a three-year hiatus also joining her on the runway are Angels Candice Swanepoel, Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Josephine Skriver, Lais Ribeiro, Martha Hunt, Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio, Shanina Shaik Stella Maxwell and Taylor Hill with internationally known sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, and Tv’s Kendall Jenner.

The Angels’ runway makeup featured sultry brown eyes achieved with Charlotte Tilbury’s Bigger Brighter Eyes in Exagger-eyes, soft brows with Victoria’s Secret Brow or Never, high-impact lashes using Victoria’s Secret’s Major Lashes, a bronze, dewy complexion with Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze & Glow and Wonderglow, and a balmy nude pout achieved by Victoria’s Secret Velvet Lip Matte in Showstopper.

Now we get to the most part the looks of the show broken up into the following collections.
