How To Watch The 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show So You Don't Miss A Thing
GET READY, PEOPLE. It's almost time for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. I honestly make such a big deal out of this evening — my girlfriends come over, margaritas are made, and a cheese plate is devoured. It's truly a magical evening filled with glitz, glam, and the most fab runway struts I've ever seen. The show airs on Nov. 28 on CBS. Although it's another year of long legs and a fantasy bra, there are tons of new details to look forward to. Below is how to watch the 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and all the other details you'll need for show night.
There are some major changes to this year's show that seem really exciting. Lais Ribeiro will be sporting the fantasy bra, valued at $2 million. The model personally broke the news on Nov. 1 via Instagram. Ribeiro said,
I've been holding this secret for too long and I am beyond honor to announce that I will be wearing it the Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra this year! I am very happy and thankful for my Victoria's Secret family for trusting me and all the support from my on family, friends and fans! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! its official!!
According to PR Newswire, the bra is "designed exclusively for Victoria's Secret by world-renowned jeweler Mouawad.” It's dripping in diamonds, yellow sapphires, blue topaz, and 18-karat gold. You know, typical. Besides the newest fantasy bra, there are five other changes to the show this year.
Compared to last year's Dec. 5 air date, the show will be broadcast to your television much sooner. According to Harper's Bazaar, the models will hit the catwalk Monday, Nov. 20, and the show will air on CBS Tuesday, Nov. 28 at 10/9 p.m. CST.
You can also stream the show on CBS All Access. The streaming service offers the channel live for $9.99 per month (no commercials) or $5.99 per month (with commercials). Pro tip: CBS All Access offers a week free trial — use this wisely, friends.
Basically, the show is airing on CBS, so any live TV streaming service will work — Hulu and YouTube TV are great options.
As always, our social media feeds will be flooded with pictures teasing the show, but this year we'll only have to wait eight days to see the big event at home.
This year's show will be taking place in Shanghai, China. After last year's show in Paris (literal fashion capital of the world), I had no idea where in the world VS would take their show next.
China is such a cool location, and I'm so excited to see all the behind-the-scenes action.
The newest collab for the VS Fashion Show is so, so cool. Balmain has partnered with Victoria's Secret to create some amazing looks dripping in spikes, details, and all sorts of funky accessories.
You may recognize the face of Olivier Rousteing, Balmain's Creative Director, in the video above from any of the Kardashian's social media pages — they're obsessed with the brand.
According to Harper's Bazaar, this is the first time Victoria's Secret has partnered with an outside collaborator. The most buzzworthy part? These Balmain-VS fusion pieces will actually be available for retail purchase. I KNOW WHAT I WANT THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.
4. Possible Performers
The official list of confirmed performers has not been released, but if we see any celebs heading to China soon... we'll know why. Taylor Swift and Harry Styles are big names that have been floating around the rumor mill. How amazing would that be?
Other possibilities include Zayn Malik (who's GF, Gigi Hadid, will be walking) and Justin Bieber (who just featured a plethora of different VS models in his music video for 2U).
The show has scored some amazing performers in the past like Selena Gomez and The Weeknd, so I'm sure there's something unforgettable lined up this year.
5. Kendall Jenner
I guess it's worth mentioning that one familiar face will be absent from this year's VS Fashion Show — Kenny Jenner. Considering this show is chock full of her besties and she's walked the past two years, it may be a little strange to see her absent from the runway.
No hard feelings, though. Jenner scored a deal with the fancy lingerie company, La Perla, which means she would be violating her contract if she were in the VS show, according to TMZ. She will be missed, but I'm sure she'll be watching out of support for her girls.
Overall, the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is stacking up to look like a spectacular night. The countdown until show night is on — where did I put my clout goggles?
