The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is one of the most highly anticipated annual events on the fashion calendar and this year, the night of elaborate ensembles took place at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai. Seasoned Victoria's Secret Angels like Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Adriana Lima and Taylor Hill were joined by seven Chinese models, some of whom are now familiar faces on the Victoria's Secret runway and some of whom made a spectacular debut.
