The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year is heading to Paris, to the architecturally gorgeous Grand Palais.


The Grand Palais, built in 1900 and dedicated to the glory of French art, sits on the Avenue des Champs-Élysée. It was coined a historic monument in 2000. This year, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will call it home, coming to France for the first time.

“We’re just so honoured to be in this amazing, amazing space and it’s a real creative challenge for us to do the show here,” said one of the show’s excutive producers Monica Mitro.

The space is so huge, producers are working on how to stage the show so that television viewers will be able to see the whole building. “It will take a gigantic amount of light that will light it in a way that retains the magnificence and the opulence,” one producer had said.
