Unless you've completely avoided Instagram and/or this website for the last couple of weeks, you're probably aware that this year's edition of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is heading to Paris for the first time, which will surely make for a holiday extravaganza unlike anything we've seen before when it airs on Dec. 5 on CBS. The event was shrouded in more mystery than usual this time around, with a very gradual rollout of the location, the lineup of models and the musical performers (Lady Gaga, The Weeknd and Bruno Mars), but thanks to the diligent agents, entertainment publications and fan accounts that took to social media with exciting announcements, we've pieced together the full cast for 2016.
With 51 models in all, this is the largest group of girls in the show's 21-year history. There are 18 models walking the show for the first time — including bombshell Irina Shayk and Instagirl Bella Hadid — as well as a solid crew of returning regulars, a few notable comebacks and, of course, the Angels. While new moms Candice Swanepoel and Behati Prinsloo are sitting this show out, the rest of the contract girls (Taylor Hill, Martha Hunt, Adriana Lima, et al.) will be hitting the runway, with Jasmine Tookes wearing the Eddie Borgo-designed, $3 million Fantasy Bra.
