On Wednesday, the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show took place at the Grand Palais in Paris, France.
The event was filled with glamour and featured walks from Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, and so on, as well as performances and surprises after the lingerie extravaganza.
The supermodel lineup of this year’s Fashion Show saw the notable debuts of names like Gigi Hadid’s sister Bella and the social media phenomenon Kendall Jenner.
51 angels walked the runway at the Grand Palais on Wednesday night.
Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, and The Weeknd provided musical entertainment for the evening while the California model Jasmine Tookes wore the 2016 Fantasy Bra. Dubbed the Bright Night Fantasy Bra, the piece is worth $3 million.
Kendall Jenner gets her wings in Paris
The Instagram sensation Kendall Jenner debuted on the runway of the Grand Palais des Champs-Élyssées to officially join the roster of Victoria’s Secret Angels.

Jenner took part in the glamorous parade exhibiting many pieces by renowned designers. Most of the ensembles feature wings in one way or another and wearing one of them at an official Fashion Show crowns the model with Victoria’s Secret ‘Angel’ status.
Jenner’s debut marked the first time she was in Paris after the traumatic episode of her sister Kim Kardashian at a local hotel. She was tied and robbed over $10 million in jewelry, leaving her and her husband Kanye West with sequels on their psyches.
Bella Hadid walks beside her sister and runs into ex-boyfriend
Kendall Jenner was not the only one featured on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for the first time. Bella Hadid also made her first appearance at the event, joining her sister Gigi Hadid one year after her debut.
Yolanda Hadid, the mother of the two supermodels, shared her excitement on Instagram. The youngest daughter, Bella, has expressed before that her mother is her “emotional angel,” as she joins and supports her in all of her performances.
Bella’s walk at the Fashion Show was not without its controversy, though. The 21-year-old is The Weeknd’s ex-girlfriend, and he performed as she walked down the runway in a silver lingerie piece.
However, the encounter was not awkward at all, since the couple separated in good terms, and they even remain friends. Reports claim the two dined together the evening before the show, and Bella even smiled as she saw the ‘Starboy’ singer on stage.
Veterans Ambrosio and Lima lead the way in 2016
The 35-year-olds Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima looked as great as ever on Wednesday night, rocking all of the outfits they modeled for the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Ambrosio and Lima are the two leading models remaining from the original superstar lineup that debuted in the first shows in the late 90s and early 00s.
This year’s edition of the Fashion Show marks the 17th and 18th time respectively for Ambrosio and Lima walking down the runway for Victoria’s Secret.
The seasoned veteran model Irina Shayk was among the debutants of 2016’s Fashion Show, but she had more to reveal than just her stunning curves in enticing pieces of lingerie.
Multiple sources claim the 30-year-old Russian model is pregnant from his boyfriend, the actor Bradley Cooper. Shayk reportedly announced she was expecting a baby after the show according to witnesses.
The 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air on CBS at 10 p.m. ET on Monday, December 5.
