Days before filming the annual fashion show at Shanghai, drama began to take place when Gigi Hadid announced that she won’t be gracing the runway this year; Katy Perry, who was set to perform, was banned from China indefinitely, with other models getting denied too. All that drama didn’t stop VS to put on a great show for its Chinese fans.
For this year’s show, the famed lingerie brand collaborated with French fashion house Balmain, led by creative director Olivier Rousteing, under the theme “Punk Angel”. Other themes for this year’s runway show are “Goddesses”, “Millennial Nation”, “Winter’s Tale”, “Porcelain Angel”, and “Nomadic Angels”. Read on to know who wowed at this year’s VS fashion show.
We thought we’ve seen the last of Kloss as an Angel back in 2014 when she ended her contract with the lingerie brand, but after a 3-year hiatus, Kloss walked this year’s runway like a boss. The model donned two ensembles for the show, topped off with her platinum blonde hair.
Even though her older sister didn’t walk this year, Bella Hadid still rocked the runway thanks to her gorgeous (and hot) body. Just her 2nd year as an Angel, Hadid already earned her wings! Though she had a slight wardrobe malfunction during the show’s finale, it didn’t stop her to dance the night away.
The longest and most valuable VS Angel walked this year’s runway for a record-breaking 18th time with her signature smile. Known for her intense diet regimen, Lima plans to keep her wings up until her 20th show.
Just by looking at Candice Swanepoel’s body at this year’s VS fashion show, you wouldn’t think that she gave birth to a human being just over a year ago. The South African model opened this year’s show with a plaid VSxBalmain ensemble.
