Supermodel Taylor Hill opened the 2018
Victoria Secret Fashion Show.
Say farewell to the Victoria's Secret Fashion show as we know it. Say hello to an all-new fashion line focusing "more on inclusivity and diversity."
Announced in July 2021, the company announced that Victoria's Secret Fashion Show would be back after a two-year absence. This following a surprise cancellation in 2019.
A spokesperson did not give a specific timeline for the show's reboot. But keep it here for future updates including how, when, and where the next Victoria's Secret Fashion show will be broadcast.
Victoria's Secret Past and Future
Victoria's Secret Fashion Show had been a holiday season TV treat for more than two decades featuring the world's most beautiful women in the world's most alluring lingerie.
Add to that appearances by the world's most popular musical performers, and Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was an annual ,,, EVENT.
So when the show was abruptly canceled in 2019, it came as a surprise to both fans and industry insiders.
The reasons were many and varied, but the most telling was the previous year's record low ratings -- reflecting the "MeToo" movement as sexual harassment became a far larger issue than any fashion line.
Into the 21st century, Victoria's Secret has rebranded for inclusivity and diversity.
Today, the brand remains in damage control mode as it attempts to stay relevant to women worldwide in all sizes, shapes and colors.
The best that can be hoped for now, say industry insiders, is that the show will return in 2021 or 2022, not on network TV but as a live Internet streaming event.
Stay tuned ....

All about Victoria's Secret
Secret was founded in 1972, but the company didn't really hit
its stride until the 1990's when it began to use hot supermodels
to show off its sexy line of lingerie.
After years of filming the annual fashion show in New York City the big show went on the road to Cannes, Los Angeles, and Miami before heading off most recently to London, Paris, and Shangai.
Victoria's Secret Fashion show was first televised in 2001, making its network broadcast debut on ABC, jumping to CBS from 2002 to 2017, and moving back to ABC for the 2018 edition.
Secret has a flag-ship store in New York City's Herald Square
and 1,000 outlets nationwide, but gets most of its promotion done
via their thriving mail order catalog, Victoria's Secret Direct.
