Victoria's Secret partners with Balmain for Shanghai fashion show
18 November, 2017, 00:23 | Author: Courtney Perry
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai is fast approaching, along with its annual lineup of runway-ready pop performances, which have been rumored to include Harry Styles and Katy Perry. Most recently, Katy Perry was denied a visa to perform there for her political messaging in 2015. In the video, Hadid appeared to be mocking Asian facial features as she held a cookie to her face.
The hashtag "GigiGetOutofChina" started trending and Hadid was forced to disable comments on her Instagram after being flooded with outraged posts and issued an official apology on China's Twitter-like microblogging platform Weibo in September. "Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!" she wrote on Thursday.
The show, which will air on CBS on November 28, has also seen an exodus of fashion bloggers because the Chinese government has refused to give them visas, while television producers are struggling to get permission to shoot outside the Mercedes-Benz Arena venue, the New York PostPage Six reported. And that's bad news for these two celebs who have reportedly been denied visas because of past incidents of accused racism. But just more than a week ahead of the event, it seems that Perry has been "banned indefinitely" from China after wearing a Taiwanese flag as a cape during a 2015 show at the Taipei Arena.
Perry made worldwide headlines in 2015 for her seemingly-political stage look.
This could also explain the speculation about why Gigi Hadid suddenly announced yesterday that she's no longer walking in the VS Fashion Show. "I have learned to be very careful of how my actions can come off or be portrayed, and I'm hopeful you'll accept my apology".
"She was initially granted a visa to perform at the VS show in Shanghai, then Chinese officials changed their minds and yanked her visa", a source told Page Six.
A Victoria's Secret spokesman declined comment, referring questions about the model line-up to each woman's individual agencies.
Neither Gigi nor Victorias Secret have given a reason for Gigi's absence from this year's show.
