It’s almost time for the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! On Monday night, over 50 of the hottest models will be taking over your TV screens for what’s arguably the sexiest runway show of the year. Last year, the show taped in New York but this time the Angels headed overseas to film in the City of Love, aka Paris. Based on the hundreds of photos and videos posted to social media, we have a feeling the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is going to be a magical night.

Ahead of the show airing on CBS, we rounded up all the important details you should know, including who the official Angels are, which musical guests will be taking the stage and which model was chosen to wear the coveted Fantasy Bra.

Air Date and Time

The 2016 Victoria’s secret Fashion Show was taped on Nov. 30 in Paris, but will air on TV Monday, Dec. 5 at 10 p.m. EST on CBS. The runway show will also be live-streamed online via CBS All Access. If you don’t have an account already, you can sign up for a one week free trial. Viewers can also head over to the Victoria’s Secret website at 9 p.m. EST to watch a pre-show with the Angels and different special guests.

The Angels

Dozens and dozens of models walk in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but only a select handful are official Victoria’s Secret Angels. This year they are Jasmine Tookes, Adriana Lima, Lily Aldridge, Elsa Hosk, Alessandra Ambrosio, Josephine Skriver, Romee Strijd, Stella Maxwell, Lais Ribeiro, Martha Hunt, Taylor Hiill and Sara Sampaio. Other notable models to look for are Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid.


The 40-minute show will be broken down into six themes: Road Ahead, Mountain Romance, Pink Nation, Secret Angel, Dark Angel and Bright Night Angel. According to Vogue, Hosk kicked off the show after a live band performed an opening number for the audience. Jenner and Lima also walked in the opening section.

Musical Performances

Every year the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show invites singers to perform during the event. Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and The Weeknd were tapped to perform this year as the models strutted down the catwalk. According to Vogue, Gaga was the first to perform singing “Million Reasons.” She also performed “Joanne” later in the show. Mars also took the stage to perform “24K Magic,” and The Weeknd sang “Starboy” as his ex-girlfriend Bella Hadid walked the runway.

Fantasy Bra

25-year-old model Tookes, who became an Angel last year, wore the insanely expensive Bright Night Fantasy Bra designed by Eddie Borgo. It’s been reported that the bra costs $3 million and includes an estimated 450 carats. Last year, Aldridge wore the Fantasy Bra.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air Dec. 5 at 10 p.m. EST on CBS.
