This Is What The Victoria's Secret Show Looked Like In 1997, 2007, And Now

Lingerie, diamonds, and wings since the 1990s.

The Victoria's Secret show has been around since the mid-'90s has cemented its place in pop culture. The lavish, annual lingerie show has been held all over the world: L.A. London, Cannes, Miami, Paris, New York and this year, Shanghai. Let's take a closer look at its evolution over the years, shall we?
