Victoria's Secret has been quite busy this year. Aside from announcing its new class of Angels (its largest ever with 10 contract models), running a big-budget commercial during the Super Bowl and putting on its first-ever swim special in Puerto Rico, it's about to celebrate a milestone: the 20th anniversary of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, arguably one of the most successful international marketing enterprises ever. In honor of the achievement, the lingerie brand is bringing its annual runway extravaganza back to New York City, where the show was first staged back in 1995.
Over the years, the VS Fashion Show has taken place in Los Angeles, Miami, Cannes and several locations around New York, including the Plaza Hotel, the Lexington Avenue Armory and Cipriani on Wall Street, but this homecoming follows the brand's first trip across the pond to London — the 2014 show was held at Earl's Court. While fans will certainly notice a few changes in the lineup — Doutzen Kroes and Karlie Kloss have recently retired their wings — we're expecting the anniversary show to have some surprises in store. For instance, will Victoria's Secret up the ante by creating three fantasy bras this year, up from 2014's two? Will Gigi Hadid finally earn her wings? Watch this space.
