A-list models like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Jasmine Tookes will strut down the runway in just a few hours for Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2016. Taking place in Paris, France, on 30 November, the lingerie brand will host yet another lavish catwalk show to debut their latest range of women's underwear – and the show promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
In addition to the large group of models sporting Victoria's Secret's famously sparkly lingerie, the runway will be brought to life with a host of musical guests before the 2016 Fantasy Bra makes its official debut. Ahead of it all getting underway, IBTimes UK rounds up the important details you need to know about this year's VS Fashion Show.
There will be two rather prominent Angels missing from the lineup this year, as new mothers Candice Swanepoel and Behati Prinsloo sit out. However, the following Angels will be taking part: Alessandria Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Adriana Lima, Martha Hunk, Jasmine Tookes, Elsa Hosk, Stella Maxwell, Sara Sampaio, Taylor Hill, Lais Ribeiro, Romee Strijd and Josephine Skriver.

The 2016 Fantasy Bra
Jasmine Tookes has the task of modelling the VS Bright Night Fantasy Bra, which has an estimated value of $3m. Designed by Eddie Borgo, the stunning bra boasts 9,000 hand-crafted jewels courtesy of AW Mouzannar including 18-karat emeralds and diamonds. Speaking of her coveted role, Tookes said: "It was such a surprise to me. I don't know how they chose, but I am so honoured to have this opportunity, and be able to walk down the runway with this beautiful thing."
A selection of pop stars will serenade the models and Angels as they walk down the runway. Lady Gaga will perform a track from her latest album Joanne while The Weeknd, ex-boyfriend of VS newbie Bella Hadid, is likely to deliver a Starboy track. Also included on the lineup is Uptown Funk hitmaker Bruno Mars, who is expected to deliver a dose of 24K Magic.
