Everything We Know About The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2018:
As Told By Instagram

After counting down the days and hours, last night the Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2018 arrived in New York City and the event didn’t disappoint. Though you won’t be able to watch the full production until December 2, thanks to Instagram we were able to have a sneak peek at all the shows highlights.

This year was a big one for the brand, filled with lots of firsts, including Kelsey Merrit making history as the first Filipino model to walk the show and Winnie Harlow walking as the first model with Vitiligo to hit the catwalk. VS also kept everyone on their toes, waiting until the last minute to reveal whether models Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid would be returning to the runway.

From larger-than-life wings to a near on-stage topple, this year’s show didn’t disappoint and to make life easier we did all the scrolling for you.  Rounded up, here are our top moments from the Victoria’s Secret Show 2018.

The show opener:

This year Taylor Hill got the coveted top spot as the show’s opener. Wearing red wings and a matching tartan set, this was the 5th year she has walked for the show.

 

Kendall made us want to buy a turtleneck:

After a one year hiatus, Kendall Jenner was back on the VS runway. Our favorite look of hers had to be the rocker-style embellished turtleneck-and-sleeves top that was so cropped it came above her chest. Not one for your average civilian but then we wouldn’t expect anything less from the over-the-top production.

 

Gigi nearly knocked out  Shawn Mendes with a parachute:

Gigi hit the VS runway for the first time since 2016 and her return was nothing short of amazing. The look that stole the show though was the Mary Katranzou-designed bodysuit she wore that can complete with a backpack-style set of floral and kaleidoscope patterned parachute “wings”. So gigantic, they nearly knocked out Shawn Mendes who was playing at the time.

 

Elsa Hosk wore this year’s million-dollar bra:

This year’s million-dollar fantasy bra was worn by VS veteran Elsa Hosk. Made up of 2,100 100% Swarovski-created diamonds and responsibly-sourced topaz and cut to an on-trend 90s style, it’s one of the brand’s best yet. For the first time ever Victoria’s Secret will be selling a version of its iconic “Fantasy Bra”, though it won’t include any diamonds it will be retailing for a mere $250 – a steal if you ask us.

Adriana Lima hung up her wings:

Like all good things that must come to an end, after 20 years the Victoria Secret runway said goodbye to OG angel Adriana Lima. Not one to go quietly, the angel had a larger-than-life send-off, which included an emotional montage tribute of Lima’s career with the brand. Closing the show, her last and final walk was to a Hannah Grace’s cover of “Praise You” – cue the tears.
