The fashion show, featuring top models Gisele Bundchen, Adriana Lima, Karolina Kurkova, Alessandra Ambrosio, Selita Ebanks and Izabel Goulart, will be taped for the first time from Los Angeles at The Kodak Theater. This year's fashion spectacular will feature a runway presentation infused with a holiday theme. In addition to the musical performances, the special will also include red carpet interviews, model profiles and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the world's most celebrated fashion show.
Gisele Bundchen has appeared on more U.S. and global magazine covers than practically any model in history, including Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, W, Elle, Rolling Stone, Newsweek and Forbes, among many others. Vogue named her "Model of the Millennium." After winning the prestigious VH1/Vogue Model of the Year award in 1999, Gisele went on to co-host the ceremony in 2000. Gisele has been the face of a variety of advertising campaigns including nine seasons for Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Dior, Balenciaga, Ralph Lauren, Givenchy, Bulgari and Polo Jeans. She has also served as the spokesperson and campaign model for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.
Adriana Lima, one of the most successful models in the fashion world today, got her start after winning a local modeling contest in 1996. She shot to stardom with appearances in Vogue (American, Italian & UK), I-D, Marie Claire and every other major international magazine and received a major contract from Maybelline. Lima has been photographed by some of the most notable photographers at the highest end of fashion, including Glen Luchford for Harper's Bazaar, Gilles Bensimon for the cover of American Elle, Steven Meisel, Peter Lindbergh and Ellen von Unwerth. Adriana has also had wide exposure in television, including commercials for Victoria's Secret, Maybelline, Telecom Italian Mobile and the noted Victoria's Secret commercial "Angels in Venice" with Bob Dylan. She also starred with Clive Owen in the highly acclaimed short film "The Hire" made for BMW by world-renowned film director Wong Kar-Wai.
Karolina Kurkova is one of the most sought after models for editorial and runway as well as mainstream and consumer campaigns. Kurkova was recently named one of the world's "50 Most Beautiful People," by People Magazine and remains the youngest model to ever win "Model of the Year" at the VH/1 Vogue Fashion Awards. Kurkova has starred in fashion and beauty campaigns for Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Helmut Lang, Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana, among others. She has graced the covers of American, French, German, Spanish, Australian and British Vogue. Additional covers include W, Harper's Bazaar, Numero, Marie Claire and ID. Kurkova crossed over into men's magazines, gracing the cover of GQ's "Summer Beach Issue."
Alessandra Ambrosio is probably best known for her relationship with Victoria's Secret, which has led to her being one of the most recognized models in the USA. Ambrosio is the face of the Giorgio Armani A/X billboards across the country. Ambrosio has launched a line of signature swimwear in her native Brazil.
Selita Ebanks, a native New Yorker, is a reflection of beauty inside and out. Her New York Police Captain father raised her as the only girl in a household of seven boys. Ebanks has worked with some of the world's most noted photographers and quintessential American fashion campaigns including Ralph Lauren, Abercrombie & Fitch, Levi's and Tommy Hilfiger. Her career aspirations came true when she was chosen to be a Victoria's Secret Angel, where she is the contract face and appears in Victoria's Secret print, broadcast, web, catalogue and outdoor campaigns.
Izabel Goulart is a new star in the modeling world and one of Victoria's Secret's newest angels. A model scout discovered Goulart while she was shopping for fruit in Sao Paolo, Brazil. She has already worked with top photographers and has appeared in French and Japanese Vogue, French Magazine and Numero Magazine.
