Our Favorite Moments from VS Fashion Shows Past and Present
From supersexy to out-of-this-world looks, the best performances and everything pink
It’s the sexiest time of the year as the 2016 Victoria Secret Fashion Show finally premieres on television December 5! Headlining the show held at the Grand Palais in Paris are the new supers, Kendall Jenner, sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, Joan Smalls along with long-time angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio and 46 other beautiful ladies. But it’s not just the jaw dropping, all shades of grown up pink and glittery lingerie or the extravagant set that makes the world tune in, but the amazing performances, too. This year, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and The Weeknd (that tender-flirty moment between The Weeknd and Bella though, right?) took the stage. But before we get all excited and feel bad about all the food we’re about to eat while watching the full show, let’s look back at our best/favorite moments from the Victoria Secret Fashion Shows then and now.
