OTTAWA (ON) – When Ottawa residents tune into the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Dec. 5, they’ll have the opportunity to cheer on one of their own. Local supermodel Herieth Paul will be appearing in the glitzy lingerie show alongside the likes of Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge and Cara Delevingne.
“I am extremely excited to take part in the show, on one of the biggest fashion stages in the world,” says Paul. “The whole atmosphere is different from any other fashion event. Everything is done on such a large scale.”
Since 1995, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has been revered as one of the largest fashion events on the planet, bringing together the brand’s signature lingerie and sleep- wear, an extravagant set design and live musical performances. This year’s performers include Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and The Weeknd.
“To say we’re excited to have one of our own walking in the biggest fashion show in the world would be a tremendous understatement,” says Angie Sakla-Seymour, Paul’s agent and owner of AMTI.
And while her appearance in the show is a massive achievement, Paul feels right at home on the international fashion stage. She is the reigning Canadian Supermodel of the Year and the current face of makeup giant, Maybelline.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs live from Paris on Monday, Dec. 5 at 10 p.m. on Global-TV.
