Top Models Stella Maxwell, Candice Swanepoel, Jasmine Tookes, and Behati Prinsloo returned to the runway. And 37 year old Brazilian bombshell Adrianna Lima retired her wings after 20 years as a Victoria’s Secret Angel (2000-18) – she will be missed but never forgotten. ?

In 2001, The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show made its network television debut on ABC at 9pm, as The National Organization for Women (NOW) staged a protest at the 34th Street Victoria’s Secret during the broadcast. NOW’s VP said she had a drawer full of Victoria’s Secret lingerie, and was protesting the status quo of hyper-sexualized images of women.
The ABC network (aka ‘Walt Disney/ABC TV Group’) would not carry the event again, until 17 years later when: It’s the Women Who Watch [IndieWire.com]
