On November 8th, New York City became host to one of the world’s most renowned fashion events – the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. In the city that never sleeps, the angels gathered for what would be considered the biggest fashion show event of the year. Snippets broadcasted of the show highlighted the likes of Adriana Lima, Winnie Harlow and Elsa Hosk – an exciting and diverse cast of models from all around the globe.
All hair and make-up showcased by the angels was inspired by world renowned beauty guru Charlotte Tilbury – “It is so incredible to see so many sexy, brilliant women sharing the power of makeup with the world."
Firstly, let’s talk about the Hadid sisters. It is no doubt that Gigi and Bella Hadid, the supermodel sister duo, were cast again in the show this year and blew the minds of thousands. They both exhibited effortlessly beautiful walks and showcased their styles carefully and with class. After Bella’s first debut as an angel last year, she certainly has followed her older sister Gigi’s footsteps and has truly wowed the world of fashion with her elegant style and incredible figure.
Bella graced us with a dewy, and bronzed glow that emphasised her natural tan body and skin tone. With the make-up inspiration this year being a natural, angelic look, it is no doubt Bella looked as gorgeous as ever. Her hair looked natural, healthy and glowing as she strutted down the catwalk. Both Hadid sisters showcased their consistently natural beauty and worked well together whilst highlighting their differences too. Like they say, a brunette and a blonde make an unbreakable bond.
Winnie Harlow hit the Victoria’s Secret runway for the first time and it was no doubt that she turned heads and dazzled the crowd. Her unique style and beauty shone right through from her impressive runway walk to her gorgeous make-up and hairstyle. Harlow showed off her stunning dark locks with a simple, yet elegant make-up look that truly highlighted her natural features. Her Victoria’s Secret debut not only exhibited her natural ability to walk a runway and own it but diversified a cast of beautiful angels to show that beauty doesn’t just belong to one specific ideal.
A Victoria’s Secret favourite and returner of the iconic show, Taylor Hill, wowed audiences not only with her stunning hair and make-up look, but her enviable figure which, if you follow the angel on Instagram, you’ll know the star worked incredibly hard for. Days prior the big event, Taylor captured what it truly takes to become an angel, from gruelling exercise regimes to strict beauty routines, it is no doubt that her skin looked as flawless as ever on the runway. Taylor certainly worked the natural hair look, inspired by Conair stylist Anthony Turner, who opted for a healthy and smooth look that was an aspiration for a ‘real look’.
Finally, she graced us with her incredibly fierce and effortless stunning strut for the final time this year. Adriana Lima, the Brazilian goddess and ultimate supermodel, walked her final runway as a Victoria’s Secret angel this year and celebrated hanging up her wings after 19 years of loyalty to the brand. No doubt that the angel will go on to do incredible things after her successful career in modelling, audiences were treated to her iconic poses and one final strut. Lima showcased a gorgeous shimmering silver lingerie set that accentuated her incredible figure and truly brought out her deep light blue eye colour. The star’s iconic bombshell waves floated behind her as she showcased a gorgeous natural look that highlighted her tan. Adriana Lima certainly is a force of nature and not one to be reckoned with.
