A star-studded list of music artists hit the runway with Victoria’s Secret top models and Angels for the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which aired last night (Dec. 2) on ABC.
This year’s show returned to one of Victoria’s Secret’s flagship cities, New York, New York. Known for showcasing the newest line of lingerie, including an annual fantasy bra (worn this year by Elsa Hosk), a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show always brings high energy, glamorous looks and spectacular music performances.
This year’s crop of VSFS models included Kendall Jenner, Behati Prinsloo, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Jasmine Tookes, Martha Hunt, Stella Maxwell and more.
All the performers did an incredible job. So, it was arguably tough narrowing down our three favorites. Check them out below.
3. The Struts “Body Talks”
An emotional thread ran through the broadcast as Adriana Lima, often dubbed, “the greatest Angel of all time,” walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for the last time. Her fellow models were teared up in backstage footage and she gave a heartfelt thanks to the brand for making her dreams come true.
The Struts closed out the show with a smoking rendition of “Body Talks” from their latest album, Young & Dangerous. Adorned with a moon and stars, Lima paused to rock out with the band before completing her final run. It was a fun, energetic moment and a great way to end a fantastic show.
The Chainsmokers and Kelsea Ballerini performed their Top 10 Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart collab hit “This Feeling.” Ballerini and Andrew Taggert had great onstage chemistry and their vocals sounded amazing together. They brought an electrifying energy to the song while the Golden Angels walked the runway.
There probably wasn’t a better crowd-pumping way to open the show than Leela James’ powerhouse delivery of the empowering anthem “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman.” James belted the song with effortless poise and passion as the opening models hit the runway. A fun audience pan found proud mom Kris Jenner snapping photos of Kendall and another revealed Adam Levine cheering on his Angel wife, Behati Prinsloo. James brought flash and excitement to an already charged-up environment. Her electrifying performance earns our No. 1 rank for the night.
