Victoria’s Secret is celebrating 20 years of its fashion event, and its heading to the fashion capital of the world for the first time ever! Where is the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016 happening? None other than the city of love, Paris, France! The show has been monumental in making fashion a mass phenomenon with live broadcasts in over 100 countries. A lot of planning goes into such a fashion show, especially of a scale and grandeur of this size. With 2016 being a milestone for the Victoria’s Secret show, what are the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show themes? We’re going to give you some behind-the-scenes details of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016 in Paris.
Victoria’s Secret is in Paris for the First Time!
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has been held in New York City, L.A., and Miami. This is the first time the show will be held in Paris, and the third time outside the United States. The 2000 show in Cannes was the first time Victoria’s Secret took its show outside the country, followed by the 2014 show in London. Executive producer Monica Mitro, creative director Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou, and casting director John Pfeiffer have been the brains behind the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for two decades.
The brand posted pictures of the 51 beauties boarding the Victoria’s Secret private jet to Paris, all sporting white skinny jeans and pink shirts with “Victoria’s Secret 2016” written on them. Once in Paris, the girls were straight to work, swapping out their pink shirts for white ones, layered with black bomber jackets, and posing for cameras. Fresh on their flight, the brood of Angels posed at the Grand Palais as the sun was rising. Veteran Victoria’s Secret Angels Lily Aldridge, Adriana Lima, Jasmine Tookes, Josephine Skriver, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Elsa Hosk took playful pictures in the sunrise with the Eiffel Tower in the background.
On December 5, the models strutting down the stage, which is set up at Grand Palais, so right now, they are busy with rehearsals, fittings, and most importantly, getting their wings prepared!
Joining seasoned angels like Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Lily Aldridge is a new class of models like Stella Maxwell, Jasmine Tookes, Elsa Hosk, Martha Hunt, Josephine Skriver, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, and Kendall Jenner. This year’s entertainment lineup includes Grammy Award-winning artists, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, and The Weeknd.
Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Themes
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has always been about the costumed lingerie, entertainers, no-expense-spared stage designs, and of course, the models. This year’s stage is designed with the intent to show off the opulence of the Grand Palais and the beauty of Paris.
A short film on the Victoria’s Secret web site teased that the show has a Marie Antoinette-style theme called “A Very Private Affair.” The show’s theme is divvied up into segments every year. The 2016 show will debut the latest Pink collections through six segments, namely, The Road Ahead, Dark Angel, Secret Angel, Pink Nation, Mountain Romance, and Bright Night Angel.
Who Will Wear the Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra?
Jasmine Tookes was only made an official Angel a year ago, and she’s now won the honor of wearing the showstopper for the biggest fashion event of the year. Tookes will sashay down the Grand Palais runway in this year’s Bright Night Fantasy Bra! The crystal-encrusted lingerie piece is designed by Eddie Borgo and is worth a whopping $3.0 million!
Another eye-catching creation this year will be the custom-made Victoria’s Secret Swarovski look. The 23-year-old Danish supermodel, Josephine Skriver will wear the sparkling ensemble. It is encrusted with 450,000 Swarovski crystals with sleeves that weigh 10 pounds each, matched with sparkling thigh-high boots.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is one of the biggest events this year, so make sure you tune into CBS on Monday, December 5 at 10:00 p.m. EST for the full show!
