The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015 will air tonight on CBS. The lingerie show already took place a month ago. Why is it not live?
20 years ago, the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show started out as a live online-only video streaming event. 20 years later the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show has evolved into a gigantic TV event watched in 185 countries around the world by about 500 million people.

For fans, the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015 is already almost old news, as hundreds of photos have been released online on the day the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015 was taped (Nov. 10).
Tonight's hour long TV show is not going to have any surprising moment. It will be a perfect spectacle featuring 47 of the world's top models wearing 46 wings and 75 different lingerie fashion looks. The Weeknd, Selena Gomez and Ellie Goulding will support the models with their performances.
So why is Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015 not a live event? There are two main reasons. In the history of the show there have been many complaints about indecency. In the aftermath of Super Bowl 2004 halftime scandal involving Janet Jackson's nipple, the Victoria's Secret Show was even cancelled.
Over the years Victoria's Secret has become very careful to not suffer a nipple slip or even worse in their televised fashion shows.
The second big reason is that the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is one epic TV commercial. It is not an entertainment show. Victoria's Secret created a unique thing that is perceived as a pop culture event, while in its core it is just a commercial. Victoria's Secret is selling lingerie for one hour on TV.
Commercials are not live, as they are optimized to sell to consumers. This takes time and effort. Victoria's Secret had now a month time to create an optimized version of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015 they taped in New York early November. It will be sexy, entertaining and beautiful, but you are goin to watch a commercial.
All 47 models walking the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015 can be found in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015 model list.
CBS will air the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015 on Tuesday, December 8, 10/9c. CBS All Access will stream the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015 live online.
