It's no secret (sorry Victoria) that this year's VS Fashion Show was a bit of a royal flop. Shanghai denied visas to both headliner Katy Perry and star model, Gigi Hadid, leaving the show with little-to-no spark or pizzazz. While Harry Styles filled in for Katy and show execs brought back former angel Karlie Kloss, the show still lacked its usual lustre with little to no excitement. 

The most interesting aspects of the show seemed to happen before it aired, mainly the refusal of Gigi and Katy into the country. The only shocking aspect of the show this year was Ming Xi's quick runway stumble, only to have her regain her poise.

The after-party however was a whole different scene, as models graced the event in nearly naked dresses. Reports claim that Chinese officials pulled the plug on the party way before it was expected to end and sent armed officials in to escort guests out. Yikes...but at least the dresses were glam! Let's take a look at the gowns that shut down Shanghai.
