Guess where the Angels are walking this year.

If there's one more thing other than the holidays that we all look forward to before the year closes, it's the sexiest runway show event of the year: the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show! The renowned lingerie brand organizes an annual show that flaunts their newest collections donned by the VS Angels. And for this year's event, here's what we know so far:

1. They’re bringing the Angels to Paris!

The last VS Fashion Show was held in London. But this year, they’re flying the Angels to the fashion capital of the world–Paris! It will be held at the Grand Palais, a rightful venue for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show’s 20th anniversary.

2. It will be aired in early December.

Mark your calendars, everyone! The models are going to heat up your winter as they are slated to walk the runway on December 5. It will have six segments including The Road Ahead, Secret Angels, Mountain Romance, Pink Nation, Dark Angel, and Bright Night Angel.

4. No Gigi or Kendall?

As of the moment, there hasn't been an announcement as to whether they’ll be walking the show or not. New moms Behati Prinsloo and Candice Swanepoel aren’t confirmed either.


5. Bella Hadid is officially an Angel!

Just a few hours ago, Victoria's Secret announced on their Instagram account that Gigi Hadid's sister, Bella, is officially walkig for the brand's annual show! They even posted a snippet of Bella's casting roll. Check it out below!

6. Jasmine Tookes is going to wear the Fantasy Bra!


Every year, an Angel gets chosen to wear the multi-million dollar Fantasy Bra that is coveted by many VS models. Last year, Lily Aldridge wore a $2 million-dollar bra. For the Paris VS show, Jasmine Tookes was given the honor of wearing the $3 million-dollar Fantasy Bra designed by Eddie Borgo and handcrafted by AW Mouzannar. The bra is made of 9,000 precious gemstones like diamonds and emeralds that took about 700 hours to make. Watch her get teary-eyed below!


7. MaxFactor is teaming up with Victoria’s Secret.


Cosmetics brand MaxFactor is the official glam team of the VS Fashion Show. In an interview, VP for Marketing Karen Owen announces that the Angels’ looks will primarily highlight the transformative power of MaxFactor’s latest mascara, False Lash Epic. They also announced that VS model Stella Maxwell is their newest face, joining fellow Angel Candice Swanepoel.

There’s no official news yet as to who will be performing at this year’s show. But with a luxurious backdrop and an astounding Angel lineup, we can't wish for December to come soon enough!
