Models Slayed Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show Paris 2016 [View Pictures]


The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show kicked off in Paris with wings, over-the-top lingerie costumes and musical performances. Names like Kendall Jenner, Bella and Gigi Hadid were among the winged beauties to strut the legendary runway, hosted for the first time in Paris. While top names like Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga gave the audience performances to remember.

The 2016 cast includes 51 women, from newcomer Bella Hadid to seasoned pro-Adriana Lima. “We want to embrace everyone’s natural beauty,” Stylist Sarah Potempa said. “We’re giving a carefree approach to the length and type of curl. Some women with shorter hair, maybe a lob, will walk with that hair. We’re not gonna add extensions to make it super-long … we’re not gonna put a wig on. We’re gonna embrace it. There are 51 women, and we’re gonna make them feel they’re most beautiful.”
