We know that it’s just days until the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show takes place at Paris’ Grand Palais, home to the famous Chanel runway show during Paris Fashion Week and with it come a whole new pack of Angels for us to adore.
That’s right Voyeurs, the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will feature eighteen rookies and it’s all part of a plan masterminded by Ed Razek to win back fans and viewers after 2015’s slump.
We’ve all seen the casting videos for the show but who’s earned their wings? Lets find out…
Everyone in the world knows that Bella made it through the process and will appear on the runway. In lingerie. With her recent ex-boyfriend performing live. And her sister, who is rumoured to be pissed about the whole thing. Awks.
2. Alanna Arrington
Super in demand runway model whose stock is rising. With every runway season Arrington grows in popularity, if you think she looks familiar that’s because she was a regular fixture on the runways of NYC, London, Paris and Milan during Fashion Month SS17.
3. Brooke Perry
Hailing from Montana, Perry is the quintessential girl next door. She’s been the face of Victoria’s Secret Pink for just over a year now so was an easy choice for the VS Fashion Show.
4. Camille Rowe
Another girl already familiar to Victoria’s Secret having featured in several of the brands lingerie campaigns and instore visuals. Looks a little like Behati Prinsloo no?
Dilone is a force to be reckoned with in the modelling industry. Ruling the runway by day and rapping by night, that’s right Voyeurs, this girls got skills! She brings the cool points as the urban choice for the VS Fashion Show
6. Georgia Fowler
New Zealand born Fowler has tried out for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show five times already and cried for two straight days when she found out she’d made it through.
7. Grace Elizabeth
A regular in Vogue, this rising star covers both commercial and editorial modelling work, something only a few can do well.
8. Herieth Paul
You’ll recognise her from the Maybelline New York campaign, she’s no stranger to modelling with six years of experience under her belt.
9. Irina Shayk
As famous for her love life as she is for her modelling career, Shayk is no stranger to the runway. Famously binned Ronaldo for Bradley Cooper, well, you would wouldn’t you?
10. Jourdana Elizabeth
A recent change to Jourdana’s appearance has seen her propelled into the limelight, much the same as when Karlie Kloss cut off her long locks, Jourdana sheared her long dark curls, reached for the bleach and earned herself a spot in Antony Vaccarello’s first runway show for Saint Laurent.
11. Keke Lindgard
A regular on the campaign circuit, Keke has already appeared in major billboard campaigns for DKNY, Gucci and Ralph Lauren, the Victoria’s Secret gig looks set to push her into the mainstream.
12. Lais Oliveira
Another Brazilian beauty joins the line up, already a regular in the Victoria’s Secret catalogue, Oliveira has dreamt of donning the famous wings since she was 13 years old, which, coincidentally is when her modelling career began.
13. Lameka Fox
Only 18 years old, Fox was scouted through the Instagram We Love Your Genes campaign. Since then she’s walked the runways of major designers such as Burberry, Coach, Tommy Hilfiger and Miu Miu. She also opened the SS17 Yeezy runway show.
14. Luma Grothe
Brazilian, beautiful and with cheekbones and brows to die for. Convinced by a friend to enter a local modelling competition the rest is history. Grothe is currently a L’Oreal spokesmodel and has featured in a Dolce & Gabbana billboard campaign.
15. Maggie Laine
After being spotted on FaceBook Maggie was given a model contract and said at the time that she’d set herself a goal of walking the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Achieved within two years, this all American girl looks set to go far.
16. Megan Williams
Williams needs no introduction, already known for being a Guess Girl, British born Williams regularly appears in Sports Illustrated. She’s no stranger to getting her kit off.
17. Xiao-Wen Ju
In July 2012 Ju was ranked 22 on the models.com Top 50 Models list, she’s a seasoned pro and has already walked for Thierry Mugler, Luis Vuitton, Prada, Dior and Kenzo.
18. Zuri Tibby
The first black model for Victoria’s Secret Pink line, Tibby is fun loving and fresh looking. She was discovered in a shopping mall and says that walking the VS Fashion Show is a dream come true.
So there we have it, a record number of eighteen new recruits have earned their wings in the Class of 2016 and you can watch the full show in early December. If you’re in the US, CBS will screen the show at 10pm on Tuesday December 8th. While the UK will have to wait an extra day to catch up on Wednesday December 9th when the show will air on 4Music at 9pm.
