Victoria's Secret Angels Gigi and Bella Hadid join Kendall Jenner in dazzling wings on the runway for the 2018 show

Every year, the glittery catwalk bonanza brings together some of the hottest models in the world, and the latest extravaganza was bigger and better than ever.

This year’s spectacle was held at Pier 94 in New York and once again featured all the lingerie and glamour that the show has become known for – along with a host of musical performers.

Big names this year included catwalk power sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, who looked sensational on the downtown Manhattan runway in an array of eye-popping wings.

They were joined by Victoria’s Secret favourites Kendall Jenner, Candice Swanepoele and Adriana Lima.

The show typically draws in around 800million viewers and costs around £9.2million to create, with no expense spared on the sensational outfits.







Kendall Jenner took to the runway in a number of dazzling outfits, including a fierce black ensemble which featured dramatic black wings and diamante lace sleeves.

She returned to the runway after a year off and certainly arrived back with a bang.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was joined by close pals Gigi and Bella Hadid, who showed yet again why they are some of the most in-demand models on the runway.






HOW TO WATCH THE VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW IN THE UK

Although the show is actually on November 8, it won't be broadcast then.

The show is pre-recorded, and is kept under wraps until December 2.

That means there's still a little wait yet.

To watch it here in the UK you'll need a YouTube TV or a Hulu account.

These are the only places that will (legally) be showing the event.

Both YouTube TV and Hulu offer free trials, so if you're not already signed up it might  be a good idea to make the most of that offer if you're desperate to watch supermodels strut down the runway.

Bella sizzled in a black bra and knickers set, which had white straps bearing saying “Victoria’s Secret”.

The model returned for her third show alongside her big sister, who had skipped the event last year.

Meanwhile, Gigi turned heads wearing a psychedelic, billowing winged train, with a sumptuous tartan lingerie set that included a red sporran on her hip.

The Hadid sisters shared the catwalk with beautiful pals Candice Swanepoel, Lais Ribeiro, Sara Sampaio, and Martha Hunt, and a number of other elite supermodels.

All eyes were on Swedish model Elsa Hosk, who was given the honour this year of wearing the Victoria's Secret bank-breakingly expensive Fantasy Bra.





This year's highly anticipated creation has been designed by Aterlier Swarovski and is made up of precisely 2,100 diamonds.

The revealing design – complete with a matching diamond body chain – took over 930 hours to create and features 71 carats in the shimmering centrepiece.

This gorgeous and glistening creation has been valued at a cool a $1 million (£765K).

Brazilian bombshell Adriana Lima, 37, walked her final catwalk show wearing a series of mesmerising outfits.




Dripped in jewels, she looked incredible wearing gigantic wings that resembled white peacock feathers.

The show was potentially poignant one for Adriana, who has featured in the event for the last 19 years and made her debut in 1999.

It was announced during the taping of the show that she will be hanging up her wings for good.

A host of popular faces make a spectacular comeback to the show after taking a few years off.

Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel, who has had two kids back-to-back with partner Hermann Nicoli, returned to the catwalk with a bang.










The stunning mum showed off her flawless body in a lacy, pink bodysuit with stunning feathery salmon-coloured wings.

Victoria's Secret favourite Behati Prinsloo also returned, after missing the last two to start a family with Maroon 5 frontman husband Adam Levine.

The mum-of-two ensured she was the centre of attention with a dramatic tartan train and thigh-high black boots.

Behati walked in nine consecutive VS shows, before giving birth to daughters Dusty Rose and Gio Grace.



Model Toni Garrn, who dated Leonardo DiCaprio from May 2013 to December 2014, returned to the shiny catwalk after a five-year absence.

She wasn’t the only one making a comeback, as Barbara Palvin also made an appearance, having last walked in 2012.

And there were new faces in the line-up with Winnie Harlow making history as the first model with vitiligo, which is a condition that causes pigmentation loss on patches of skin.





Instead of the iconic pink robes seen in previous years, the glam angels wore striking black satin gowns with gold lettering on the back as they got ready backstage.

Hair was made picture-perfect by stylist Anthony Turner, with make-up provided by Charlotte Tilbury.

The talented make-up artist posted a photo backstage of the vast collection of her products being used on the models in the show.

She captioned the shot on Instagram: “Darlings, I am finally BACKSTAGE at the @victoriassecret Fashion Show!!! Can’t WAIT to show you the FRESH, natural, GLAMOROUS, Angelic filter look I have created for the runway!! With this look, you will cast a spell on the world!”








Britain took the runway by storm with six models from the UK in tonight’s spectacular show.

They include Megan Williams, 24, of Southampton, Alexina Graham, 28, from Nottingham — the show’s first redhead — and Sadie Newman, 24, who is Devon born.

And Leomie Anderson, 25, from south London – who boasts Rihanna as one of her pals – appeared for her fourth time.

Another British model to appear in the show include Cheyenne Maya Carty, who walked the VS runway for the first time.


The 22-year-old, from Tottenham, wrote on Instagram: "Dreams do come true."

Accompanying the wing-clad models down the runway were musical acts Bebe Rexha, The Chainsmokers, Halsey, Kelsea Ballerini, Rita Ora, Shawn Mendes and The Struts.

The show is pre-recorded today, and is kept under wraps until December 2.

To watch it here in the UK you'll need a YouTube TV or a Hulu account from this date.
