The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is known for showcasing some of the most beautiful women in the world in sexy lingerie.
Stars such as Candice Swanepoel, Elsa Hosk, Bella Hadid and Jasmine Tookes were just some of the women who stunned in Shanghai last week.
The models wore Grecian inspired outfits for one section of the show, with scrappy sandals that reached all the way up the thigh.
They wore golden leaf jewellery on their heads and around their wrists, but of course most eye-catching were the tiny outfits.
Another section of the show saw models from all over the world wearing African-inspired garments in bright colours.
They wore woven wings with large headdresses and necklaces, accessorised with lashings of beads.
Punk inspired lingerie also made it onto the catwalk. Sara Sampaio sizzled in a fishnet body stocking, wearing jacket with studs and shoulder pads over the top.
Karlie Kloss wore a tartan bra with strap details, and a flowing tartan cape, with leather boots running up her long legs.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is an annual show which has been running since 1995.
It has been held in countries all around the world including Miami, Los Angeles, Cannes, Paris, and London.
With the brand now targeting the Asian market, the latest show has been held in Shanghai, China.
Initially the show was created as a way to advertise lingerie to men before Valentine’s Day, and the early shows were held in the days preceding the holiday.
However, the shows have morphed into something entirely different now – an extravaganza which also well as showcasing the brand’s lingerie has performances from world class musical acts.
Performers such as Katy Perry, Kanye West, Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande have all taken the stage as the twenty to forty models cast showcase the dazzling lingerie and nightwear.
Today the show is broadcast on television and online around the world.
Each year since 1996 one model has modelled the ‘Fantasy Bra’. This garment is designed to showcase the craftsmanship of both Victoria’s Secret lingerie designers and the jewellery who is chosen to craft the bra.
Lais Ribeiro, 27, is modelling the £1.5 million ‘Champagne Nights’ fantasy bra.
