Everything you need to know about Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

As the most famous fashion show hits London on Tuesday 2nd December, 
here is everything you need to know:

*This is the first time the show takes place in London. It is only the fourth time to have taken place outside New York in the brand’s history.  
*The first show took place 20 years ago in 1995.
*This year’s venue (Earls Court Exhibition Centre) is one of the biggest ever held the show, the capacity of which is more than 20.000. 

*Not every model that walks the show gets to wear wings. Only the “Angels” (the models that have an exclusive contract with the brand) will have the honor.
*At the 2011’s show Alessandra Ambrosio wore the heaviest wings ever made and she was pregnant with her second child! Now that’s what I call commitment!
*It can take up to 400 hours to make the wings the Angels wear on the catwalk.

*Usually only one Angel gets the honor of wearing the show’s signature item, but this year the brand decided that Andriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio will both wear a Fantasy Bra.
*This year’s Fantasy Bras worth 2 million dollars each. Each features 16.000 gems and 18 –karat– gold jeweled body pieces. Just in case you were thinking of buying one…  

*The most expensive Fantasy Bra was worn by Gisele Bunchen in 2000 and was valued at 15 million dollars.
*The average Angel height is 5 feet and 10 inches tall (1.78m). Let’s not talk about the average Angel weight… we will get depressed… 

*Cara Delavigne and Kendall Jenner will not appear on the show, because they will walk in the Chanel Metiers d’Art show in Austria, which takes place the same day. And no one can says no to Karl… 

*This year’s fashion show will have six themes: Gilded Angels, Exotic Traveler, Dream Girl, Fairy Tale, Angel Ball and University of Pink.

*Let’s not forget the music performances! Victoria’s Secret, for some reason that we still not understand, decided to bring back for the second time, Taylor Swift as the lead performer of the night. The other performers are: Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran and Hozier.
*The tickets are invitation only. :(
*The brand repeats the show once more in the same day to ensure that the television cameras can capture every angle. 

*The show will air in U.S.A at 9th December and in the UK at 10th December. For the rest of world… just check youtube.
