The sexiest fashion show of the year, “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show,” took place Wednesday night in Paris, France (Nov. 30). Although it didn’t air live as yet, which it will on Dec. 5, fans have already received a sneak peek from social media. Kendall Jenner stirred up a lot of conversation on Twitter when the second youngest of the Kardashian clan received her wings, mainly because models who’ve been a mainstay at the event have yet to adorn a pair.
The 21-year-old had the opportunity to walk in the show for the second time, and not only received one set of wings, but two. A few Twitter users were angered by the fact that models such as Martha Hunt and Adriana Lima — who’ve been walking in the show for years — didn’t receive wings, which is a coveted item for some models. It raises the question on whether or not the “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” is moving in the direction of focusing on getting more viewers, or paying attention to models who are “deserving?”
However, supermodel Lima was here to support her newfound friend. She expressed to E! News that she has worked with Jenner for quite some time and thinks she’s deserving. “I have worked with Kendall on runways before when we were in Europe, like Versace and also with Victoria’s Secret,” Lima said. “I give her credit for all the effort. And I think she is going to do great because Victoria’s Secret is all about personality, and she has her own personality.”
Jenner’s BFF, Gigi Hadid, also received her first pair of wings after only walking in the show twice. The aforementioned model has a total of 69.4 million followers on Instagram, and Hadid tallies 25.9 million followers. With the high number of followers they both have, it would be understandable if the Victoria’s Secret management did it as a way to increase ratings for the show. Regardless, Jenner and Hadid looked fabulous as they stormed down the runway.
Check out Twitter’s reactions below.
The fact that Martha Hunt that is a angel didn’t get wings and Kendall Jenner got 2 is honestly disgusting #VSFS2016
