Not only did Winnie Harlow make her Victoria’s Secret debut, she was actually the first model with vitiligo – a skin condition that causes patches of pigment loss –  to feature in the show. The Canadian supermodel sported two showstopping outfits.

The Special Guest Performances

Despite some criticism that this year’s special guests didn’t quite live up to previous names – Lady Gaga in 2016, The Weeknd in 2015 and Taylor Swift in 2014, to name a few – the performers put on a great show. The 2018 line up was made up of Shawn Mendes, The Chainsmokers, Halsey, Kelsea, Ballerini, Rita Ora, Bebe Rexha, Leela James and The Struts.

Elsa Hosk Wore The Fantasy Bra

Elsa Hosk had the honour of wearing this year’s fantasy bra. Made up of more than 2,100 jewels, the bra is worth a whopping $1 million dollars (£764,125). If you don’t quite have the budget of a Victoria’s Secret Angel, the brand are planning on releasing a similar design encrusted with Swarovski crystals that will retail for $250 (£191).
