Model thank­ful at fi­nal Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret show

The Tribune (SLO) - - Espresso -

An emo­tional Adri­ana Lima bowed her head in thanks and crossed her hands over her heart as she made her 18th and fi­nal run­way walk in the an­nual hol­i­day Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret Fash­ion Show, her long white feather an­gel wings gen­tly blow­ing as the crowd cheered.

A trib­ute video played Thurs­day dur­ing tap­ing of the ex­trav­a­ganza, declar­ing Lima “the great­est an­gel of all time” while Fat­boy Slim’s “Praise You” played.

The show will be broad­cast Dec. 2 on ABC and in 190 coun­tries around the world.

The Struts, Shawn Men­des, The Chainsmok­ers, Rita Ora, Bebe Rexha, Kelsea Bal­lerini and Halsey per­formed on the run­way at a down­town Man­hat­tan venue as 60 mod­els walked, in­clud­ing sis­ters Bella and Gigi Ha­did, Ken­dall Jen­ner and Win­nie Har­low.

Ora briefly walked hand-in-hand with one of the an­gels dur­ing her per­for­mance, and a stage hand later fetched a piece of her gold jewelry that fell to the run­way. Men­des was dressed in black and slung his acous­tic gui­tar on his back as he sang “Lost in Ja­pan” while Gigi Ha­did man­aged a huge para­chute-shaped set of flo­ral wings that caught the air like a mas­sive wind­sock.

Back­stage be­fore the show, Lima, a mother of two, and other mod­els lounged in short black robes be­daz­zled with gold stars.

“I thought over the years I would get more re­laxed,” Lima said. “No, I still get ner­vous, just like at my first Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret show.”
