Victoria’s Secret Holiday Commercial 2017

We all know the spectacle that is the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, the annual runway extravaganza that is like no other fashion show in the world! But did you know the annual lingerie show is not the only show-stopper Victoria’s Secret films each year? They also film their annual holiday commercial! The holiday commercial showcases the ‘Holiday Lingerie Collection’ and the Angels of course! 

Each year the Victoria’s Secret Holiday commercial is filmed in incredible locations all over the world among the likes of Venice, Prague, Chicago, Rome, Paris and London! This year, the Angels descended on Aspen, in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, to shoot their Western-themed campaign at a whopping $80 million ranch over the weekend, including: Candice Swanepoel, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Jasmine Tookes, Lily Aldridge, Lais Ribeiro, Taylor Hill, Josephine Skriver, Martha Hunt, Sara Sampaio and Stella Maxwell.  The commercial is to be filmed by legendary Hollywood director Michael Bay.

It takes a village to put together a production quite like this, around 200 people to be exact! The commercial would not be possible without the efforts of directors, photographers, stylists, hair and makeup artists, creative directors and many more! In this years filming location, there were cabins set against mountain ranges. There were log fires. There were horses. There were husky pups. There were cowboy hats. And boots. And belts. There were assless chaps (lots of them).

VS head honcho Ed Razek made reference to the sheer scale of the special shoot in a photo he posted to Instagram, captioning it: “13 Angels, 2 photographers, a crew of 100+, one big time director, and an $80 million ranch – no one does Holiday like Victoria’s Secret does Holiday!”

With the holiday commercial done and dusted, the next big project for Victoria’s Secret to unveil is it’s annual fashion show! The creative team has been at work all year bringing the outfits and themes together! Castings and fittings are taking place this coming month ahead of the extravaganza that is rumoured to take place in Shanghai, China towards the end of the year!

She’s Back!

Victoria’s Secret announced the return of VS Angel Candice Swanepoel today in a video featuring the model looking STUNNING just seven months after giving birth to her first child. Back in October, Candice gave birth to a baby boy named Anacã,

Pictured above is Candice backstage at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show back in 2015. She was noticeably absent during the 2016 Show in Paris due to the arrival of her son! Candice has walked a total of 9 shows since her debut in 2007! The 28-year-old Victoria’s Secret model from South Africa appears in a black and white clip shared on the company’s Instagram account wearing white lace lingerie.

Earlier this month, the model turned heads when she attended the annual Met Gala in New York City in a full length sleeveless black gown looking amazing. It’s safe to say the Queen is back! As for her fellow angel that recently became a mother, Behati Prinsloo, she has yet to return to work but I’m sure it won’t be too much longer before we see her back!
