The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has finally set a location for this year’s big event. For the first time ever, the Victoria’s Secret Angels will be filmed in Shanghai, China, and the event will be broadcast November 28 on CBS. The annual event is the world’s most celebrated and most watched fashion show, and this year it will be seen in more than 190 countries. Last year’s show received 1.4 billion views and more than 150 billion media impressions worldwide.

Merging fashion, fantasy and entertainment, the lingerie runway show will include pink carpet interviews, model profiles, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the show and musical performances that will be announced at a later date.

The all-star line-up of Victoria’s Secret Angels will include returning favorites Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Josephine Skriver, Lais Ribeiro, Martha Hunt, Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio, Stella Maxwell and Taylor Hill, as well as new faces.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is being produced by Done and Dusted, inc. Edward G. Razek, Monica Mitro, Ian Stewart, Hamish Hamilton and Chip Quigley are the executive producers. Hamish Hamilton is the director.

Last year’s musical lineup included Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and The Weeknd. Taylor Swift also performed at the event in 2014 with BFF Ed Sheeran. Last year’s models included Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes (who wore the $3 million Bright Night Fantasy Bra), Josephine Skriver, Lais Ribeiro, Martha Hunt, Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio, Stella Maxwell and Taylor Hill, as well as Karlie Kloss and Bella and Gigi Hadid. In 2015 Kendall Jenner took the runway alongside Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge. That year Lily Aldridge wore the 2015 Fireworks Fantasy Bra, valued at $2 million dollars. No word yet on who will be wearing this year’s centerpiece.
