The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Isn’t Over

Lingerie brand returns to the runway and airwaves, but questions about the show’s appropriateness linger.

Unless it is referring to the eighth episode of the seventh season of The Office, the term “viewing party” generally refers to something we want nothing to do with.

Generally …

On Sunday night at Spring Studios in New York City, Victoria’s Secret held a viewing party for its 2018 Fashion Show which aired on ABC that evening. An encore presentation airs Friday.

With Angels like Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, Kendall Jenner, and Gigi Hadid strutting their stuff during the show and musical guests such as Bebe Rexha, the Chainsmokers, Halsey, and Rita Ora providing the musical soundtrack, the event was watched on TV by about 3.27 million people.

Including names like Kelsey Merritt, Josephine Skiver, Romee Strijd, Jasmine Tookes, Lais Riberio, Elsa Hosk, Taylor Hill and, Martha Hunt, the guest list at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Viewing Party may have been even more impressive than at the actual show itself.

Not convinced? Well, as they say, seeing is believing.
