Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2017 model line-up:
Die Castings für die Victoria's Secret Fashion Show finden normalerweise Mitte Oktober statt, doch dieses Jahr wurde das Casting um ein Monat vorverlegt. Es gibt dafür keine offizielle Begründung, aber es wird vermutet, dass Zeit einkalkuliert wurde, damit die Models rechtzeitig ein Visum für China bekommen (die Show findet dieses Jahr in Shanghai statt). 

Models wurden noch vor den Modewochen für die Frühjahr-Kollektionen gebucht (normalerweise erst danach). Somit verpassten die Breakout-Stars der Frühjahr-Kollektion die Chance für die Show in Erwägung gezogen zu werden wie z.B. Sijia Kang, Fran Summers oder Sarah Fraser. Aber zum ersten Mal konnte man mal schauen, ob sich Designer davon beeinflussen ließen, Models zu buchen, die für diesjährige Victoria's Secret Fashion Show gebucht wurden. Hier eine Zusammenfassung wieviele Shows die Models der diesjährigen Victoria's Secret Fashion Show gebucht haben:

Wie man sieht, gehören fast alle Models nicht zu den gefragtesten Laufsteg-Models der vergangenen Saison (aber auch verständlich, wenn man die gefragtesten Models der letzten Saison betrachtet).

Mein Fazit bleibt: Qualität vor Quantität und das wird sich auch nie ändern. Dieses Jahr wurden wieder mehr Models gebucht und es beläuft sich jetzt schon auf 60 Models (während dem Höhepunkt der Show ca. 2005 wurden locker nur halb so viele Models gebucht). Zeitlose, elegante Schönheiten, die dick im Geschäft sind, findet man heutzutage nur noch selten in der Modeindustrie. Gleichzeitig castet Victoria's Secret immer mehr und mehr Models. Dass die Qualität sinkt erklärt sich von alleine.   

Die diesjährige Victoria's Secret Fashion Show findet am 20. November statt und wird am 28. November auf CBS ausgestrahlt.
