Ah, the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Home to many iconic supermodels and memorable catwalk moments, the lingerie brand's event has been much anticipated by both huge industry names and fashion fans ever since it began because of its unique take on the runway. Not to mention how it is considered to be a big opportunity-maker for budding models to be included in the show, given that they'll be lined up with names like Tyra Banks, Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum, and Adriana Lima to name a few, who all have held the prestigious title of being a 'Victoria's Secret Angel'.
But even with its outstanding production set that grows bigger every year, its glamorous take on lingerie, and the crowd-pleasing performances of well-known artists gracing its stages, numbers don't lie. For years, the show's TV ratings are consistently and inevitably dropping, making us think that maybe VS is already losing its appeal. It is said that in the U.S., viewership has dropped to 3.3 million people as compared to 5 million of the previous year. That, in comparison to how shows in preceding years have reached to even 10.5 million viewers, showed a significant decline, especially since it was expected that this year's show would perform well at the confirmed appearances of 'VS age demographic' favourites such as Kendall Jenner and the Hadid Sisters.
