Even Angels fall sometimes. During the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show today in Shanghai, model Ming Xi took a tumble on the runway.
Poor Xi Meng Yao took a fall onstage 😭😭 Baby girl got back up and gave a gorgeous pose though (topic currently trending too), hoping they don’t cut her out ♥️#奚梦瑶 #ximengyao #mingxi pic.twitter.com/VHQ2Heik1w

But she recovered perfectly, and kept her smile on the whole way through—even as she was on the ground fixing her floral wings.
The industry still has a long way to go
Bella Hadid, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss and more share how they got there.
Although the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show doesn't air for another week and a half, the Angels and models are already flying overseas and getting settled in Shanghai before they take the runway to film on Monday.
For last year's show in Paris, the models all flew together in a private jet complete with matching shirts and in-flight champagne. This year, the runway stars flew separately—some in pairs or small groups—but they still documented every step of their journey, from the moment they packed their luggage until after landing in China.
Models snapped their packing processes:
Alanna Arrington had plenty of shoes to choose from.
Victoria's Secret x Balmain may be the collaboration on everybody's lips this season, but don't let that distract you from VS's long-running (and equally stunning) partnership with Swarovski. This marks the lingerie brand's 15th anniversary working with the renowned jeweler, and they're celebrating in a big way: One million Swarovski crystals will grace the catwalk through various looks in Shanghai, WWD reports.
Elsa Hosk, a VS Angel since 2015, will be wearing the leading look on the runway, which features 275,000 multicolored crystals, 200 yards of ribbon, hand-beaded jewelry, and 14-pound wings. "It is one of the heaviest wings we have ever made," Monica Mitro, executive vice president, brand communications and events at Victoria’s Secret, told WWD.
When Victoria's Secret announced their 2017 fashion show lineup, it didn't escape fans' notice that not one of the 52 models was plus-size. But now, one plus-size model has decided to show Victoria's Secret exactly what they're missing by recreating some of their famous adverts on her Instagram account.
Man, back fat rolls are sexy, ion care! @jessyjphoto

Olivier Rousteing teases how the collection was made.
The Victoria's Secret Angels are coming for Kylie Jenner's crown. That's because Angels Elsa Hosk, Sara Sampaio, Jasmine Tookes, and Martha Hunt just droppedtheir ery own holiday lip kits. Each limited edition kit has a lip liner, matching matte lipstick, and glittery gloss—plus a giant picture of the corresponding Angel on the box.
With less than three weeks to go until the Angels take Shanghai, Victoria’s Secret revealed their highly-coveted fantasy bra today. The “Champagne Nights Fantasy” bra featuring handset diamonds, yellow sapphires, blue topaz in 18 karat gold, designed by Mouawad, costs $2 million dollars and will be worn by Lais Ribeiro.
The 6-foot-1 Brazilian-born stunner who has been working with Victoria’s Secret since 2010, officially became an Angel in 2015, and has appeared in every fashion show except 2012 when she sprained her ankle during rehearsals and was unable to walk the show.
