The iconic Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is the annual catwalk event absolutely everyone on the planet wants to see – and with good reason.
To mark the event’s 20th anniversary, this year saw Kendall Jenner’s epic debut on the Victoria’s Secret runway, alongside her best friend and fellow supermodel Gigi Hadid.
The Angels were out in their full glory at the famous event, each rocking one show-stopping lingerie look after another.
As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one night, though, Selena Gomez, The Weeknd and Ellie Goulding added to the spectacle with an exclusive performance one after the other.
But the show didn’t always come hand in hand with the glitz and glam it does today.
In fact, when the very first show was held in 1995, there were no wings, glitter or A-listers in sight – just a whole bunch of amateur models clad in their very best underwear. Three years on in 1998, angel wings made their very first appearance on the catwalk, and the show has gone from strength to strength ever since.
Across the period of two decades, model supers including the likes of Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Gisele Bundchen, Naomi Campbell, Adriana Lima and Karlie Kloss have been parading down the Victoria’s Secret runway in everything from furry wings to million dollar fantasy bras (the most recent creation cost a cool $2 million, FYI).
As well as this year’s big-time performers, a whole host of others including Kanye West and the Spice Girls have been given a much-coveted slot to serenade the models as they strut their stuff down the runway, too.
In celebration of the most spell-binding fashion happening you will probably ever encounter, we’ve put together a compilation of the very best pictures of the Victoria’s Secret shows taken over the years. Prepare for some serious bod envy..
