The highly-anticipated 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, scheduled to air on CBS this Monday, December 5th, is expected to draw more than 30 million viewers worldwide. For weeks the focus has been on the model lineup, the musical talent (Lady Gaga, The Weeknd, and Bruno Mars) and, of course, the $3 million Fantasy Bra. Posing on Monday at Paris’s Grand Palais, the fifty-two Angels were shot in matching “uniforms,” continuing a longstanding tradition of continuity.
Eighteen of the Angels, including Bella Hadid, will be making their Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show debut. Runway veterans, Gigi Hadid, Kendal Jenner, Irina Shayk, Joan Smalls, Lily Donaldson, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Kelly Gale, and Lily Aldridge have all been followed on social media as they upped their workouts for the show. Noticeably absent from the lineup this year are Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, and new mothers, Candice Swanepoel and Behati Prinsloo.
