Women’s lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret held their annual fashion show yesterday at Grand Palais in Paris, France.
Among the models showing off the latest looks were four Chinese nationals, a record number. The first Chinese model didn't appear in the show until 2009, when Liu Wen made her Victoria's Secret runway debut.
This year, Liu was joined by Xi Mengyao, Sui He, and Ju Xiaowe to take over the catwalk. Take a look at some of their runway looks.
The lingerie brand is making a big push to China, having first expanded to the area in 2015. The company already opened two stores in Beijing, and is adding another flagship location in Shanghai.
“Maybe someday we’ll have the fashion show in Shanghai — maybe — because we’re a global brand,” Leslie H. Wexner, L Brands founder, told the Columbus Dispatch. “We have demonstrated that we have the best brand-building ability in the world. People who can’t read English, when they see the Victoria’s Secret name, they smile.”
