The annual beauty and bod extravaganza that is the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show took place in Shanghai on Monday last week. And if you’ve been following its up-to-the-minute coverage, you’ve probably almost seen it all: Harry Styles, Leslie Odom Jr, Jane Zhang, and Miguel’s performances; Ming Xi’s graceful tumble; Balmain’s plaid- and leather-replete lingerie; and of course, the world-renowned Victoria’s Secret Angels.
Despite hiccups including model Gigi Hadid and pop star Katy Perry’s visa application rebuff or the after-party’s unforeseen police raid, the show had its share of highs: The return of Karlie Kloss after a two-year hiatus and also, the final appearance of Alessandra Ambrosio before retiring from her 17-year stint as one of the brand’s leading Angels.
But what happens after all the intense exercise regimes are completed, the lavish pre-show preparations immortalised on Instagram feeds, the catwalk strode over, and the final bow taken? Answer: The Angels go on their dream getaways, sans wings. This weekend, Bella Hadid flew to the Bahamas, Jasmine Tookes and gang to Phuket, while Elsa Hosk and friends headed to Tokyo.
Here, scroll down and let these bombshells inspire your next vacation — be it to a winter wonderland or a sizzling hot isle.
Karlie Kloss made sure her final exit from Shanghai was as major as possible. Why travel light when you have ample baggage allowance to store your whole wardrobe?
