The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, is always a stunning moment for tv and this year will be no different. It is to be set in the Grand Palais in Paris. Executive producer Monica Mitro, had this to say about the location, “The Grand Palais is an iconic amazing building.” She continued, “We went, we looked at it, surveyed the site… and it’s so incredible. It’s a fashion capital, and we’ve been changing and moving, and we felt like the logical next step was Paris, the City of Light. It’s so sexy… and everyone is so excited about it.”
By everyone she is also accounting for the 52 models that will be part of the event this year, the most in the shows history. There will be 18 new girls along with sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid. The first sisters to hit the VS runway.
There is no feeling in the world like walking down this runway. I'm elated to say I'll be returning to the @VictoriasSecret Fashion Show this year. Thank you @ed_razek for putting on the show that has been one of my greatest motivators since I was a teenage fan of the Angels, and for making this dream come true for me again. It will forever be an honor. Can't wait to join the surreally beautiful and inspiring women that are the #vsfs2016 lineup. See you in Paris ❤️❤️????????‼️
Mitro said the casting process was the toughest it’s ever been as there were so many talented women this year. “I’ve done this for 21 years now, and for the first time, I felt that there were so many good girls. It was hard to make that choice at the end.”
The runway will have six different sections. The themes for each section will be “The Road Ahead, “Dark Angel”, “Secret Angel”, “Pink Nation”, “Mountain Romance”, and “Bright Night Angel”. All having a very glam feel, Pink Nation will traditionally stick to athletic leisure looks. This years Pink Nation will feature looks designed in collaboration with Nicopanda’s Nicola Formichetti.

Skriver’s enchanting look will be showcased as the night comes to a close during, “Bright Night Angel”. The feel of this section “is all about the party girl”, said Mitro. She continued, “She’s out for the night in Paris, she’s at the clubs, she has her most expensive sparkly things on.” Definitely the perfect moment for that Swarvoski look.
Musical guests were also recently announced. Headlining the event this year will be The Weeknd, Lady Gaga, and Bruno Mars. As news of the show continues to surface, it becomes more of a can’t miss event.
Don’t forget to tune in December 5th at 10 p.m. ET on CBS!
