Former BAZAAR cover star and long-time veteran of the Victoria's Secret fashion show Shanina Shaik just dropped a huge bombshell: the lingerie brand’s annual runway show is cancelled this year.
"Unfortunately the Victoria's Secret show won't be happening this year," she told the Daily Telegraph. "It's something I'm not used to because every year around this time I'm training like an angel. But I'm sure in the future something will happen, which I'm pretty sure about.”

Back in May, the New York Times reported that the show, which has aired on either ABC or CBS since 2001, will no longer be shown on network TV due to the drop in viewership.
The 28-year-old model added that she doesn't think it's a permanent decision. “I'm sure they're trying to work on branding and new ways to do the show because it's the best show in the world," she said.
The half-Saudi half-Australian model has walked the Victoria’s Secret catwalk in 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2018.
