2016 Victoria’s Secret show gets steamy reaction

The Victoria’s Secret runway show routinely leaves mouths gaping every year, but this year it was more than the bods and the threads that got the nod.

An astonishing line-up of Angels including Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Josephine Skriver, Lais Ribeiro, Martha Hunt and Romee Strijd strutted their stuff on the runway at the Grand Palais in Paris last Wednesday.

The spectacular event was finally aired earlier this week and the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive…and not only because of the gorgeous lingerie.

The organizers have been praised for upping the diversity of the show as they gave Jasmine Tookes the nod to model the $3 million Fantasy Bra designed by Eddie Borgo. She became the third woman of color to model the exclusive centerpiece.

A record four Chinese models also made their way down the catwalk while performances by Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars kept the ears as entertained as the eyes clearly were.

The Weeknd, whose girlfriend Bella Hadid made her first Victoria’s Secret appearance after being rejected in 2015, also performed on the night. Bella’s sister Gigi Hadid and her BFF Kendall Jenner were also among the models that walked the runway show.

The event’s pink carpet, the Victoria’s Secret version of the red carpet, and front row was also peppered with fashion and entertainment A-listers including Nick Cannon, Olivier Rousteing, Doutzen Kroes, Lenny Kravitz, Yolanda Hadid, Mohamed Hadid, Carine Roitfeld and Jordan Barrett.
