New York, NY – Nov 8th: The Fashion Industry’s 2018 Superbowl Event [wikipedia] was held in Manhattan’s Historic Lexington Avenue Armory with fan-favorites Kendall Jenner and sisters Gigi & Bella Hadid walking the runway.
Eighteen new Angels were introduced as they strutted the catwak for the first time, while a bevy of music artists performed throughout the night with them, including Shawn Mendes, Rita Ora, and Halsey (just to name a few).

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.
