Sexiest night on television
"The sexiest night on Television" tends to whoop CBS when broadcasting the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show although prior to being aired on television the glamorous event is first recorded and unveiled in November.
This year, Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show is to take place in Paris for the first time and as the picture proves the selected model to wear the most special bra of the night is Jasmine Tookes.
Abide by the importance of such a glamorous day in the world of fashion some of the most prominent and relevant models work for Victoria´s Secret after having trained hard to look perfect during the event.
Yet, there are plenty of interesting details that are no so unknown that I am going to explain with this post. Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show was created in 1995 but it was no until 2001 the show appeared on television
Creation of the name Victoria´s Secret
The name of Victoria´s Secret comes from an original anecdote. One of the founders called Roy Raymond would be embarrassed while buying lingerie clothes for his wife named Victoria, the outfits to be founded in the 1970s were somewhat boring, old-fashioned and so hideous that he decided thereby to launch a lingerie retail site to sell sexy outfits. This was the secret of Victoria; her hubby was buying and choosing her intimate clothes!!!
Angels of Victoria´s Secret
Being an Angel of Victoria´s Secret is a prestigious title. Only a few lucky supermodels have been selected to wear the wings at Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show.
The models who have worn the special bra on more than one occasion are Karolina Kurkova, Adriana Lima, Gisele Bündchen, Tyra Banks and Alessandra Ambrosio. The model who worn it on 3 occasions was Heidi Klum and most recently Adriana Lima who is still an Angel.
There are more or less 40 models that appear on Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show, only some are Victoria´s Secret Angels while the rest work for the brand that day or perhaps they work for other VS label named Pink aimed at teenagers and university students.

Similarly, there are other supermodels who do not appear on the show but work for the brand all year long, in fact, VS used to have 8 angels and 11 supermodels. However, Victoria´s Secret has changed its strategy and now there are more angels than ever.
They have signed new, young supermodels and after seeing how Doutzen Kroes, Lindsay Ellingson or Karlie Kloss left the brand a new group of young beauties has been hired. As a result, Victoria´s Secret has these new young models as angels; Martha Hunt, Elsa Hosk, Taylor Marie Hill, Stella Maxwell, Lais Ribeiro, Josephine Skriver, Sara Sampaio, Jasmine Tookes and Romee Strijd.

These new young 9 Angels in addition to the veteran ones, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio allows Victoria´s Secret to have now more angels than ever.

These 14 now and 8 in the past supermodels named Victoria´s Secret Angels are the main protagonists of the annual Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show because they wear the most spectacular outfits and the impressive wings, what is more, one of them will wear a special bra, it changes its name albeit it might have the title Fantasy attached to it, specially made for this particular occasion with rare, expensive and precious materials like sapphire or diamonds.
12 Million Dollars!!!
Without going any further, two years ago the chosen model was Candice Swanepoel who did wear a bra that costed ten million dollars. (As I have mentioned before the chosen supermodel this year is Jasmine Tookes). The model who worn the most expensive special bra ever was Gisele Bundchen whose outfit was valued 12 million dollars.
Music and Fashion
Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show is fun, colorful and spectacular. In recent years, very important artists have performed at it such as Kanye West, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, The Black Eyed Peas or Rihanna that made supermodels to look even better. Indeed, show of Victoria´s Secret is deemed as the most important fashion event of the year or at least, the most popular by far.
