Angel wings, beautiful lingerie, fresh faces and top models galore – the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (Dec. 2) is easily one of the industry’s most highly anticipated event of the year! On top of catching a glimpse of celebrity models like Bella and Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner and first-timers like Canada’s Winnie Harlow strutting their stuff, the musical line-up is just as big a part of the show. And this year, Canadian star Shawn Mendes will help bring down the house.
An eclectic mix of rock n’ roll, country and big electronic hits will help take the models down the runway, with musical names like EDM sensation Bebe Rexha, The Chainsmokers, Halsey, country star Kelsea Ballerini, Rita Ora and rock band The Struts set to perform alongside 20-year-old Shawn. The event, which took place in Shanghai last year, is returning to the Big Apple with many a veteran angel sliding back into her wings (think Adriana Lima, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel and Martha Hunt!).
The strutting models and belting musicians always play it up for the cameras, making for some unforgettable runway moments. Remember the post-breakup tension between The Weeknd and Bella when the Canadian rapper performed at the Paris show in 2016? Or Taylor Swift’s show-stopping squad moments with her model friends while singing “Trouble” in 2013? The show always promises the most exciting mesh of the world’s biggest musical stars and the most notable models – and we’re certainly hoping to catch some Kodak moments while the Award-winning singer and his peers play some of their hottest songs to date.
