NEW ENTRIES:

This year, Victoria’s Secret chose two important names in pop culture to walk the catwalk. Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid will make their debut, but do not expect to see the Kardashian clan in the audience due to Kendall’s clear message:

“I told them all to stay away. It was too much pressure and I was like, ’Mom and Dad are good enough, I just need the pressure off. There’s enough pressure as it is.”

Another star of the show, besides the beautiful Gigi Hadid, is the 2 million dollar bra wore for the occasion by Lily Aldridge, which required 685 hours of work and the use of 6500 precious stones such as blue topaz and yellow sapphires.

Bringing the fashion show to life takes a full year, and the result is a thrilling mix of many different elements and aesthetics: Flowing silk, fireworks, bohemian looks, psychedelic patterns, floral Fantasy Bras, butterflies, snow-themed outfits, bedazzled bodysuits, giant feathered wings, thigh-high boots and country girl get-ups.

The event is scheduled to be televised on December 8, be sure to catch The Weeknd, Selena Gomez and Ellie Goulding in their musical performances.
