Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show to Air Dec. 5 on CBS
The models have strutted their stuff down the Paris runway, and now the world waits. After walking down the runway on Nov. 30, we are getting a sneak peak of what is in store for the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion show. Want to see it yourself? Tune into CBS on Monday, Dec. 5 at 10pm.
This year’s show is guaranteed to wow. We will reportedly watch as more than 5o models rock 82 looks varying by theme. Not only do we get to see the multi-million dollar Fantasy Bra (estimated at $3M), we’ll also see performances by Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and The Weekend.
What gets me is that the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show pulls such a wide audience – an estimated 800 million viewers from TV and streaming services across 190 countries. Yes, the models are beautiful. Yes, there are musical acts that will be talked about around the water cooler on Tuesday. The costumes are gorgeous and the production value is amazing, but if you ask me, the underwear is the last reason I tune in. But I guess that’s the point.
The VS brand is massive. Not only is Victoria’s Secret known for underwear, sleepwear, loungewear and workout gear; they’re known for their models. Models Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum and Gisele Bundchen are some of the best known. Each walked the Victoria’s Secret runway for 7-10 years. Adraiana Lima will be walking in the fashion show this year, making her one of the longest running models to grace the stage. She walked from 1999 – 2008 and from 2010 – present. Alessandra Amprosio is also making her return after walking from 2004 – present. (Source: Wikipedia)
Some younger models to look out for are the always beautiful (and sometimes controversial) models Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner. This will be their second year to walk the runway of the Victora’s Secret Fashion Show.
The models are a huge draw for me; mostly because the show generally features behind-the-scenes footage that showcases the models’ personalities. By highlighting their goofy, fun, flirtatious and sometimes awkward comments, they seem more real. Their relateability draws you in. The costumes and glamour of the show makes you feel, even if it’s just for a second, like you can rock that sexy bra and panties (does anyone else hate that word?) and strut your stuff around the house.
Now that’s just this one girl’s opinion. What makes everyone else tune-in is none of my business. Ladies and fellas out there, pull up a seat, grab some popcorn or a glass of wine and enjoy the show!
