Gigi Hadid Will Not Walk In The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Gigi Hadid Will Not Walk In The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

She also sparked further outrage after wearing a sunflower gown - a symbol of the Sunflower Student Movement, which protested a Chinese trade agreement in 2014.

Hadid and her sister Bella announced that they would be walking the runway at the show scheduled for Tuesday in August. It's been reported that four models and several bloggers were denied Visas to enter China, and Adriana Lima's visa is in purgatory.

The problems are not dying down for Victoria's Secret.

Representatives for Perry and Victoria's Secret didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment regarding this situation.

According to a report by Page Six, Katy has allegedly been banned from China over a controversial dress she wore in Taiwan back in 2015. Taiwan has been in conflict with China over its independence for many years.

Earlier this week, leaked graphics suggested that Styles, Miguel and Katy Perry were the performers.

This controversy isn't the first to impact the fashion show. VS has been expanding its presence in the Chinese market, opening a boutique in Shanghai in March, as well as 26 beauty- and accessories-only stores in mainland China.

But Hadid isn't the only model facing setbacks.

Plus, on Tuesday, Fashionista reported that Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva, and Irina Sharipova of Russian Federation and Dasha Khlystun of Ukraine have all been denied visas to travel to China. Still, without an announcement from Victoria's Secret, it was hard to view the graphics as definitive.

It's unclear why Victoria's Secret thought hosting a lingerie show in Shanghai, China, was a good idea. "This will, without question, be the biggest fashion event in history".

Our essential brief on culture, the news, and more.

The announcement is the second apparent snag to hit the USA lingerie maker's A-list underwear extravaganza set, following reports that three Russians and one Ukrainian model had failed to obtain Chinese visas.
