Models Are Denied Chinese Visas Ahead of Famed Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Model Behati Prinsloo walks the runway during the 2015 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show at the Lexington Armory on Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2015, in NY.

Harper's Bazaar reported that several Russian and Ukrainian models have also been denied visas to walk in Shanghai.

I haven't been to China or that part of the world, so it's going to be a first for me!

U.S. envoy to the UN Nikki Haley warned after the council vote on Thursday: "We will do it again if we must". After the council voted on the U.S. draft, Bolivia then requested that the body vote on the Russian text.


Considering Hadid's lifelong dream to walk in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (as seen by her teary reaction when she was announced for the show in 2015), the model's sudden departure raised eyebrows among fans and industry folk who were shocked to see Hadid drop out. "These TV companies are spending a fortune on it, and they don't even know what they can shoot when they get there".

They're not alone. The Victoria's Secret staff in China is also having issues sending out press releases since they can't be released until they've received government approval. Fashionista notes that the record label hasn't confirmed the news yet, but Styles' next tour performance isn't until November 23 (three days after the fashion show is filmed) in Singapore.

Perhaps the show will stay put in the U.S.A next year.

The annual extravaganza featuring Angels like Karlie Kloss, as well as Bella and Gigi Hadid, is set to tape Monday in Shanghai, China, but the show has become a nightmare for four of the models.

Last year, the show took place in Paris, France, which had been impacted by the Paris terror attack and Kim Kardashian's jewelry robbery ahead of the show.

Representatives for Victoria's Secret and IMG Models, which represents Gigi Hadid, did not immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment.
