Here's my thoughts on the 2018 Fantasy Bra:





According to People Magazine, Adriana wants to go for two more years, in order to walk at least 20 shows. Seeing how she IS Victoria's Secret, I would assume that she would get at least one more Fantasy Bra before her time is up. However, #4 will probably be for her last show, which won't happen until 2019. Unless something drastic happens and she chooses to end her contract earlier, I would rule her out. 





Honestly, I think Behati is done with VS. She seems content with her family and I don't see her pushing herself to come back to modeling. No Angel has taken this much time off from their contracted job. Her only hope is if she gives birth (presumably by February) and works out relentlessly to get her body ready for the molding of the FB. Seeing how she'll probably be breast-feeding and her body has essentially no chance of staying consistent with the strict measurements the bra requires, I would rule her out. If she does come back by next summer and works her ass off for that coming year, I believe she could nab the 2019 FB, if Adri stays for a year after. If not, her best chance is 2020, if she sticks around long. It's a no for 2018 though. 





Candice is the defining angel of the 2010s. 2013 was one of the best FBs and her walk proves she can definitely handle one. It'll be 5 years since the last time she wore one, so she is certainly a viable option for 2018. She's getting older, but I think VS is intent on giving the New Angels their shots. Seeing how strong she is as a spokesmodel and the fame she brings to the brand, I wouldn't be surprised if she nabs another one, but I wouldn't put her as the top choice right now. If Behati doesn't come back, the line-up drops a few of the New Angels, and both  she and Adriana stay longer, I can see Candice getting her well-deserved second. Whether that be 2018 or 2022, we'll see. 





The brand loves her. Her pictures are amazing. Her spokesperson abilities are wonderful. Unfortunately, her walk is shit. Her FB was lackluster and she got it during the worst VS show in history. I think Lily is a one and done kinda FB girl. I'd rather let Kendull come crawling back to the show than see her with another one, tbh. 





She was thought to be the shoe-in for this year. She's my top pick for next year. Alessandra got the show opening in 2009, SO in 2011, then the FB in 2012, so it is entirely possible for her to get back-to-back special treatment. Seeing how much the brand seems to be loving on her, if she keeps her work consistent, she should be one of the top choices next year. 





As much as I would love double Lais, it has never happened and, based off of how comparative the positive reaction to her bra was to Candice's, it seems like she will have to wait some time for another one. 





Honestly, I'd be fine if this girl got the FB every year. She's back in the running for another one, but I'd keep her on the same level as Candice right now. I see Jasmine as a long-lasting Angel, so I'm sure she'll get another one, but maybe not in 2018.  





Josephine is, arguably, the new Candice, in terms of usage and fan favoritism. She is at the top of her game and is most definitely a strong contender for the FB. I personally wouldn't give her the 2018 one, but she's definitely a force in the industry and deserves it if she gets it. 





Martha hasn't really delivered a strong performance since 2014 / 2015's SO, nor is she used frequently in advertising. Unless she steps up her game in the next couple of months, I can't see her ever getting a FB. Unless VS is planning to build her up to a bigger contributor, I don't see her as a contender for next year's FB. 





Romee is definitely on her way up, both within VS and in the high fashion and public world. She is still young, so she has time, but VS loves her and she is used frequently in commercials and adverts. I would hold off until the 2020s, but VS is unpredictable and she might show up with one next year. However, I think they'd give her something like the SO before she got the FB> 





This bombshell is frequently looked over by VS and given the short end of the straw in most situations. However, the same could be said about Lais prior to 2017. She is one of the better NAs and could be so big if VS uses her well enough. I see her getting one in the next few years. Maybe not the 2018 one, but no doubt the 2019 one at the earliest. She's still one of the picks I have for being a top contender. 




She was thought to be a front runner this year, but all of the hype settled and Lais ended up surprising everyone. Seeing how VS has begun to use her less and less, I think it would be more likely for her contract to end than for her to get the 2018 FB. 




She's definitely one of the bigger names within the brand, but has never really come up in the conversation when discussing FBs. She's the true wildcard of the brand. 



Class A: Elsa Hosk, Josephine Skriver, Sara Sampaio
Class B: Candice Swanepoel, Jasmine Tookes, Romee Strijd, Taylor Hill 

Class 😄 Adriana Lima, Martha Hunt, Stella Maxwell

Class D: Behati Prinsloo, Lais Ribeiro, Lily Aldridge


Dream FB Line-Up:

(based off of what I see as tangible)

2018: Elsa 

2019: Adriana (#4) 

2020: Sara

2021: Candice (#2), Jasmine (#2), or Lais (#2)

2022: Josephine

2023: Romee or Taylor

* Josephine could go in 2021, with Candice, Jasmine, or Lais taking 2022.


Seeing that 2020 is the 25th anniversary, I would love to see Adri stay one more year (with Sara getting the 2019 FB) and close the whole show with her FB.   


On 11/26/2017 at 6:43 PM, Clauds said:

Adriana's 20th and most likely last show will be in 2020, and since that is 25th Anniversary, I'm sure as hell Adriana has that FB and show opening locked in. I just don't see any other girl getting that. People (and Adriana herself lmao) seem to forget that there wasn't a show in 2004 and she skipped the 2009, so this year was her 17th, she's got walk at least until 2020.


2018 tho, unless she gets pregnant or something, the logical choice would be Elsa.


On 11/26/2017 at 6:54 PM, Sanni said:

I could see Josephine getting it BUT her gushing about it would just be too much. She would need to figure out how to express herself in a more grounded, relatable and likable way. I can already imagine her saying, “OMG, first I was made an Angel, then I got to open a segment and wear the Swarovski outfit, then I got one of the biggest wings, and now I have the Fantasy Bra! This is a dream that I never want to wake up from!”


On 11/26/2017 at 9:26 PM, JROCK177217 said:


I originally had her pegged down as walking until 2020, but she states in the People's article that she plans on walking for "at least two more years. (Maybe more :smile: )" I think she counts the Angel Tour of 2004 as a show lmao. Silly Adri! 


I'm hoping for a blowout show in 2020. They could advertise the shit out of the 25th anniversary and bring back some older models. Giving Adri the spotlight and recognizing it as her final show would draw more viewers in. VS loves Adri and, even though I loved Ale's show closing, they definitely will go all out for Adri's final show, unlike Ale's.


Watch them make all the 2020 interlude interviews about Adriana. One being her story, another about her family and have Ale, Lais, Candice, and Lily talk about how great of a mom she is, and finally one with Josephine crying about how Adriana was her idol growing up and she never would've been able to dream about going from a model to waking up as an angel had she not had someone like Adriana to look up to. 


On 11/27/2017 at 7:53 PM, Clauds said:

LMAO I'm choking at the 2020 show thing because it seems so accurate:rofl: 


However, Adriana is just flat out stupid, she has given wrong facts about her own career multiple times, I guess it's normal because she's been doing it for so long that she probably doesn't care anymore. But if we're going by the book, 2020 and here's a concept ... The 2020 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, hosted in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We get an intro a la 2008 with Adriana saying It's showtime, for one last time and she opens the show with a fourth and Fantasy Bra, making her the Angel with the most FBs ever. In the interlude interviews she gets her ass kissed by pretty much everyone, then before the last segment which is a Carnival inspired segment she says her goodbyes and farewells and she closes the show as Queen of Carnival.

Omg, I'm laughing really hard because it's too accurate :rofl: 


On 11/29/2017 at 1:54 PM, JROCK177217 said:


Honestly, I'd love this concept. I'd probably put her FB closing the show. A Carnaval themed FB would be amazing and really special since it would tie in with her Brazilian heritage. Knowing how VS just did Alessandra so dirty by taking out her closing, I wouldn't surprised if Martha and Stella get a duo FB in 2020, Kaia Gerber gets the SO in her first show, and all the segments are about Josephine. 


On 11/30/2017 at 7:19 PM, Clauds said:

Tbh I doubt Adriana's farewell will go unnoticed like Alessandra's did. Lbr, VS never gave a flying fuck about Alessandra, the only time she got something was 2014 and she was with Adriana :ninja: So while my amazing concept is a stretch, I do think Adriana will get something whenever she leaves


On 12/3/2017 at 3:56 PM, Ichigo9 said:

I would love for Adri to get something big when she leaves. However, i don't think VS would give screentime and press attention etc to someone who's leaving the brand, when they could use these efforts to push someone who will still be contracted in the future and will help to sell . Didn't Heidi  leave without anything major in her last show? 


On 12/3/2017 at 6:30 PM, Sanni said:

I think the key for any model to get anywhere near as big of a send-off as Tyra did is to retire completely from regular modelling and to go on into bigger and better things (movie stardom, hosting their own show etc.) So, VS can brag that they had her first and she is ending her career as a model on the “biggest fashion show on earth.”


From VS’ POV, why would they celebrate a model who is leaving and will work for other brands? In that scenario, the model is basically saying that she is tired of working for VS or the partnership just wasn’t as mutually satisfying as before.

In Adriana's case, she's 36, I'm pretty sure once she's done with VS she'll be done with modelling altogether, especially now that she got her tv show. She may do some stuff here and there but I don't see her focusing on modelling anymore tbh, so I do think she'll get kind of a send-off


On 12/28/2017 at 9:36 PM, JROCK177217 said:

Barbara Fialho commented on Ed's post for her birthday that she was looking forward to next year... Thoughts? 


I personally love Barbara but I think her automatic spot in the show should go to someone else now. She's been amazing, but it's been five years and she's 30 years old already. At the same time, I have a dream of Adriana's last show being in Brazil and would kill to have Barbara in a Carnaval themed segment. So conflicted!


Who do you guys think should be the fit models for next year? Should VS continue with Barbara, Cindy, Devon, and Dilone?


On 12/28/2017 at 9:50 PM, Dipit said:

Girl puts in work, body still on point and is widely recognizable. Bias aside, she’s a keeper.


On 12/28/2017 at 9:53 PM, JROCK177217 said:


I absolutely adore her and I would hate to see her go, but I think the swan outfit was a perfect end. However, seems like she's locked in for next year, which I am perfectly fine with. As long as they keep that creature Dilone away from the show. 


On 12/28/2017 at 9:54 PM, JROCK177217 said:

I can see Barbara joining the 10 year club, so I wouldn't be surprised if she stays for a few more shows anyways.

I'm okay with Barbara having her secure spot tbh, she earned it for sure. And it seems like out of all the fitting girls she's the one who puts the most hours and let's get real is not like she's got a lot going on other than VS :ninja: she's not my favorite model out there for sure but i don't mind seeing her in the show, she's got a good enough walk and look IMO 


On 1/22/2018 at 1:22 AM, PastaFreak said:

HOLY. You guys are on time :rofl: 


I doubt Candice will walk this year, especially with no.2 coming. I mean, she'll deliver by Sep-Oct and would go through heavy training just to get back in shape. But I doubt she'll be back. 


Thoughts of FB this year is either Elsa Hosk or one of the NAs. 




On 1/22/2018 at 3:11 AM, JJMarvel said:

Excited for this new thread!


Regarding the FB, I actually just hope a blonde gets it. It's been 4 years so it's about time someone takes it, preferably Elsa :Angel:


On 1/25/2018 at 11:21 AM, PastaFreak said:

Not sure if anyone's seen the news, but Candice announced her own swimwear line. Did Alessandra set a trend for models to come up with their own clothing line :rofl:

Weibo VS fans are already leaking there's going to be a dark-themed segment this year. Not that it's a huge surprise, every year we get a black or white segment. 



On 2/2/2018 at 12:35 PM, JROCK177217 said:


Are any of them mentioning anything about a cultural segment. I don't even think we need confirmation for those two at this point. Maybe they'll spice things up this year and do something different. Maybe a winter segment? Obviously not Snow or Ice Angels, but perhaps Hail Angels? Blizzard Babes? I'm sure Sophia's creative GENIUS will save the day. 


On 2/12/2018 at 10:11 AM, PastaFreak said:


Don't know. Another news I was told is this year's show is likely to be held in the States. 


On 2/12/2018 at 12:13 PM, Clauds said:

Considering the hot mess that China was last year, I fully expect the show to be in the US this year. I know they've been trying to make Dubai happen for a while but I don't think they'll feel like it too soon :rofl: 


On 2/12/2018 at 2:57 PM, JROCK177217 said:


The market also doesn't seem to be as demanding as China was in its lead-up. I imagine it will be in the States. New York is the safest bet, but Miami or Los Angeles could be cool, as would Los Vegas if they did a Casino theme.

In terms of events leading up to the show (not the actual show itself), Miami 2008 was my favourite year. Loved the bikini candids we got from all the models (minus Heidi).

I would LOVE Las Vegas for sure, but I guess they'll do NYC again and save a ton of money

If they signed on Alexina as an angel, I wouldn't mind. Although her walks and poses from last year's show were pretty bad.


On 2/26/2018 at 7:19 AM, Clauds said:

I love Alexina so I'd be super happy if they indeed signed her. Drops/announcements should come any moment now if they indeed did change the line up so we'll see


On 5/18/2018 at 11:31 PM, PastaFreak said:

So... I bring some news. 


It seems VS is having a Road to Runway Season 2, and there are rumors that castings are being held as early as May. I wonder what are the odds that VS is continuing another year of fashion show in China...


On 6/17/2018 at 7:12 AM, Sanni said:

Regarding the Fantasy Bra


Big “no” to


Elsa – enough said
Romee – horrible boobs
Taylor – sucks on the runway
Josephine – would be way too annoying
Stella – often unappealing


Yes” to either Sara or Martha. Also, Behati for her veteran status.


(Assuming Adriana, Lily, Candice, Jasmine and Lais are out of the running because they all have worn a Fantasy Bra before.)


On 6/28/2018 at 2:04 AM, PastaFreak said:

Has anyone heard of rumors about Sui and Ming signing angel contracts again? I know we talked about this for the 1000th time, but Weibo fans are going gaga over VS' "surprise" news, and some are speculating angel statuses again. Pretty sure it's just a PR move, but what are the odds VS finally wants an Asian to be their spokesperson?

Ming and Sui are the official spokesperson for VS China.

What is this I hear about Maggie and Kate G being confirmed ahead of castings to walk the show o.o?

Maggie is confirmed by Ed under her last photo from the vsfs, and Kate only said that she will go to the castings this year.. that's all i know haha

I used to want that Elsa got the FB, but I haven't liked her pictures lately. Maybe it's because of how VS styles her but still, not pretty for me and I'm not sure if I want her to get it.

I'm fairly certain that Sui and Ming are definitely returning. I wonder if the Road to the Runway is going to remain in China or expand to another location? I love the idea of VS trying to give up and coming Asian models a chance, but it seemed to make more sense doing it in China because the show was occurring there.


I'm annoyed that Maggie Laine is already seemingly confirmed. She was decent this past year, but Grace and Zuri are more than sufficient enough to represent PINK. However, I still think Ed might just be saying "let's do this" as an invitation to castings and a hopeful post that insinuates that she may be cast if she is interested and makes the cut. I doubt she would confirm being cast in advance before she were to be revealed as a PINK spokesmodel, if she has truly been promoted. She probably gets invited to callbacks directly, since she has walked for the past two years. 


On 7/28/2018 at 10:17 AM, Rapunzelica said:

all i know is that i'm not big fan of her, i would rather see Daniela Lopez instead 


On 7/29/2018 at 12:45 AM, PastaFreak said:

Y'all are missing the real talk here. 


I think Barbara Palvin has a shot at walking the show this year.

So Vita isn't walking due to her being pregnant (!) Are there any other models that are able to be eliminated right off the bat? Is Kendall done with VS forever or is her La Perla contract finished?


Kate G obviously confirmed she is attending castings, whereas Isabeli said she won't be attending. Devon talked about training for the VS show in a recent interview, so she seems to be interested. Then there's Maggie's post, whatever that confirms.
