The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is the hottest ticket in town, with celebrities both naughty or nice in attendance to see all the feathers, lace and glitter the show’s sexiest models can handle.
Have you ever wished you could rub elbows with the Victoria’s Secret celebrity crowd? Dreamed about having a seat at their annual fashion show so you could watch as models paraded the most insanely gorgeous lingerie in front of your eyes?
Well, it’s too late for you to be there now, but we can take you inside this year’s event with this roundup of all the juicy details.
1. The Big Apple
Last year’s show took place in London, which sounds glamorous enough, but this year, the show’s organizers brought the event to New York City in a star-studded extravaganza.
2. Kendall Jenner makes her Victoria’s Secret debut
Talk about big break. Kendall Jenner makes her Victoria’s Secret debut and made no attempt at hiding her nerves. According to the New York Daily News, Jenner admitted that she banned her famous siblings from attending the event, explaining that “it was too much pressure and I was like, ‘Mom and Dad are good enough.’”
3. The 2015 Fantasy Bra is worth how much?
This year’s Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra, dubbed the Fireworks Fantasy Bra, is valued at $2 million. It was designed by world-renowned jeweler Mouawad, requiring more than 685 hours to build. The bra features 6,808 rare and precious gems set in 14-karat gold, including diamonds, rubies and sapphires. The lucky model responsible for wearing the sexy work of art is Lily Aldridge, a proven VS model.
4. Gigi Hadid had to audition how many times?
Ever heard that old adage, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again”? Apparently, it applies to supermodels too. According to an interview Yolanda Foster (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) gave Us Weekly, daughter Gigi Hadid had to work extra-hard for her spot on this year’s catwalk.
“She missed it twice,” explained Foster. “This was her third try and she pulled it off and got a spot that millions of beautiful, beautiful women deserve as much as she does. That’s part of the game.”
5. That’s a lot of models
This year’s show will feature 47 of the globe’s hottest models, some of which top Forbes‘ highest-paid models list, including Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, Alessandra Ambrosio and Kendall Jenner. It’s kind of hard to believe it’s legal to put so many perfect-looking bodies in one place.
6. The Taylor Swift connection
Taylor Swift is everywhere. Her posse is everywhere. Basically, she’s taking over the globe and we’d better get used to it. So of course, Swift has a Victoria’s Secret connection too: She’s friends with Lily Aldridge, the lucky woman modeling this year’s Fantasy Bra. What do you think the odds are on Swift getting a private audience with that ridiculously fabulous, gem-encrusted bra?
7. Hot musical acts
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is not only an event to see, but a place to be seen. In addition to the tons of celebrities in attendance, Ellie Goulding, The Weeknd and Selena Gomez also performed.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air Dec. 8 on CBS at 10/9c, but you can get a sneak peek at all the sexiness with our slideshow below:
