Big news in the world of lingerie: According to multiple sources (including VS model Shanina Shaik), the 2019 Victoriaâ€™s Secret Fashion Show is cancelled.
Itâ€™s not a major surprise, as the company faced a controversy last year when the brandsâ€™ chief marketing officer and executive vice president of public relations Ed Razek told Vogue that â€œtranssexualsâ€ shouldnâ€™t walk in the Victoriaâ€™s Secret Fashion Show because â€œthe show is a fantasy.â€ And while Razek did offer an apology on November 9, 2019, that didnâ€™t slow the fierce criticism that Victoriaâ€™s Secret was faced with.
â€œUnfortunately the Victoriaâ€™s Secret show wonâ€™t be happening this year,â€ said Victoriaâ€™s Secret model Shanina Shaik in an interview with The Daily Telegraph. â€œItâ€™s something Iâ€™m not used to because every year around this time Iâ€™m training like an Angel. But Iâ€™m sure in the future something will happen, which Iâ€™m pretty sure about. Iâ€™m sure theyâ€™re trying to work on branding and new ways to do the show because itâ€™s the best show in the world.â€
On May 19, 2019 The New York Times reported that the Victoriaâ€™s Secret Fashion Show will no longer air on television. L Brands CEO Les Wexner reported in a memo obtained by CNBC that the company was â€œrethinkingâ€ the annual fashion show in favor for â€œa new kind of event.â€ He continued to explain that network T.V. didnâ€™t feel like the â€œright fitâ€ for the fashion show anymore. With that being said, the event â€” which has been entertaining Victoriaâ€™s Secret lovers since 1995 â€” is in the process of rebranding the show with a whole new agenda.
Victoriaâ€™s Secret has yet to comment on the official status of the Victoriaâ€™s Secret Show or its fate in light of this news.
