Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show

Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show was created in 1995 but it was no until 2001 the show appeared on television. The name of Victoria´s Secret comes from an original anecdote

One of the founders called Roy Raymond would be embarrassed while buying lingerie clothes for his wife named Victoria, the outfits to be founded in the 1970s were boring, old-fashioned and so hideous that he decided thereby to launch a lingerie retail site to sell sexy outfits, that was the secret of Victoria; her hubby was buying and choosing her intimate clothes.

Being an Angel of Victoria´s Secret is a prestigious title. Only a few lucky supermodels have been selected to wear the wings at Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show.

The models who have worn the special bra on more than one occasion are Karolina Kurkova, Adriana Lima, Gisele Bündchen, Tyra Banks and Alessandra Ambrosio. The model who worn it on 3 occasions was Heidi Klum and most recently Adriana Lima who is still an angel.

There are more or less 40 models that appear on Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show, only a few are Victoria´s Secret Angels while the rest work for the brand that day or perhaps they work for other Victoria´s Secret brand named Pink aimed at teenagers and university students.

Similarly, there are other supermodels who do not appear on the show but work for the brand all year long, in fact, VS used to have 8 angels and 11 supermodels.

However, Victoria´s Secret has changed its strategy and now there are more angels than ever, they have signed young supermodels and after seeing how Doutzen Kroes, Lindsay Ellingson or Karlie Kloss have left the brand a new group of  beauties have been hired.

As a result, Victoria´s Secret has these new young models as angels, Martha Hunt, Elsa Hosk, Taylor Hill, Stella Maxwell, Lais Ribeiro, Josephine Skriver, Sara Sampaio, Jasmine Tookes and Romee Strijd, these new young 9 angels in addition to the veteran ones, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio allows Victoria´s Secret to have now more angels than ever.

These 14 now and 8 in the past supermodels named Victoria´s Secret Angels are the main protagonists of the annual Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show because they wear the most spectacular outfits and the impressive wings, what is more, one of them will wear an special bra, it changes its name albeit it may have the title Fantasy bra attached to it, especially made for this particular occasion with rare, expensive and precious materials like sapphire or diamonds.

Without going any further, two years ago the chosen model was Candice Swanepoel who did wear a bra that costed ten million dollars. The model who worn the most expensive special bra ever was Gisele Bundchen whose outfit was valued 12 million dollars.

In recent years, very important artists have performed at Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show such as Kanye West, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, The Black Eyed Peas or Rihanna that made supermodels to look even better. Indeed, Victoria´s Secret fashion Show is the most important fashion event of the year.
