UPDATED, NOVEMBER 1, 2018: Victoria’s Secret has shared more exciting details about the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. We now know that this year’s show will be taped in New York City on November 8, and air on ABC on December 2. And there’s big casting news along to go with those updates: Three familiar faces will return to the sparkly runway this year. Keep scrolling for the full announcement.
ORIGINAL POST:The beginning of fall might herald the return of pumpkin spice lattes and cozy sweaters, but it also signifies the countdown to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. With T-minus two-ish months until the big event—it usually films at the end of November, though no official date has been announced—models have begun taking to Instagram to confirm their casting as models in the iconic show.
While we can’t yet say for sure yet whether some of the star-powered angels from the past—like Martha Hunt and Karlie Kloss—will be strutting their stuff on this year’s runway, Victoria’s Secret has confirmed a number of models who will be making an appearance in the show. Forever favorites, like Devon Windsor and Herieth Paul, will be donning their wings this year, as well as a number of new faces. For many of them, this is a lifelong dream come true, which means there’s no shortage of adorable videos on Instagram of their reactions to the news.
Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, and Kendall Jenner
Victoria’s Secret announced the official air-date of this year’s show—and the return of three marquee models—on its Instagram account. “MARK YOUR CALENDARS! The #VSFashionShow will air Sunday, Dec. 2 at 10/9c on @abcnetwork. See the Angels in action (and yes… @kendalljenner, @gigihadid & @bellahadid, too!) It’s a big moment for Gigi Hadid and Jenner: Neither model walked in last year’s show in Shanghai, China.
“I had a break down before i walked into the most nerve wrecking casting of my life. I asked my driver to go around the block twice before i could walk into the @VictoriasSecret offices so i could re coup, and remember (while my trainer @bodybymato reminded me on the phone through sobs – thank you lol) how hard I’ve been working! I went in and made new friends and saw old friends and it already felt like home! We patiently waited while @ed_razek @johndavidpfeiffer @monica.mitro @10magazine carefully took time to get to know each girl. When it was finally my time, within my nervous storm of anticipation i changed into a black Victoria Secret set and stepped out!!!! I spoke to them about Jamaica, Nick Knight, my abs, and how i was beyond honoured to be given the opportunity to try out.. then I walked for my life!!!! I can’t believe this!! Thank you for giving me all the energy and kindness in that room!
