NEW YORK (AP) — Top models Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr and Doutzen Kroes will strut in the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show to live musical performances by Kanye West and Maroon 5.
The catwalk event, which also will include VS models Erin Heatherton, Candice Swanepoel, Lindsay Ellingson and Lily Aldridge, will be filmed on Nov. 9 for a televised special later in the month.
The Nov. 29 one-hour show on CBS will incorporate behind-the-scenes tidbits, model profiles and red-carpet interviews surrounding the much-hyped lingerie show. Of course, several models will step out in the elaborate wings that have become a signature of this runway, and one will wear the jewel-encrusted Fantasy Bra.
Last year, that honor went to Adriana Lima.
In 2007, West pulled out of a performance at the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show due to the sudden death of his mother after she underwent cosmetic surgery.
West has been a front-row regular at fashion shows for years, and earlier this month he debuted his own collection during Paris fashion week.
