The 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is Off to A Rocky Start

When is the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2017 and how can you watch it?

Gigi Hadid was also forced to pull out from the show at the last minute, but has yet to confirm why. (Don't judge: We were already chilling the champers for our annual viewing party on November 28.) The glittering spectacle - set to tape in Shanghai for the first time ever - has reportedly been plagued with travel-related issues, and Page Six went so far as to dub the lingerie-filled bonanza "an global media crisis." Oof. From granting more than 700 visas, collaborating with us on every detail and introducing us to local experts who have helped us elevate our event in this renowned fashion city.

That's how Victoria's Secret must be feeling right now. According to Page Six, several fashion bloggers have run into the now-familiar can't-get-a-visa issue.

The ensemble caused intense backlash, as the sunflower has become the adopted symbol of anti-China protesters one year prior.

Although Taiwan is part of the Republic of China, the island country has a separate internal government from the People's Republic of China, where the fashion show will be held. Perry wore a sunflower dress, which she wore during a performance in Taiwain.

This controversy isn't the first to impact the fashion show.

.

"I'm so bummed I won't be able to make it to China this year".

Fashionista reports that multiple fashion bloggers have taken to Twitter and Instagram to share that Alessandra will be hanging up her wings and walking the VS catwalk for the final time this year.

That's how the cookie crumbles: Gigi meanwhile was reportedly because of a "racist" video she posted back in February of her pulling a face in a lighthearted imitation of a Buddha cookie.

But Hadid isn't the only model facing setbacks.

John Binder is a reporter for Breitbart News.

Apart from these two huge roadblocks, several other models (three Russian and one Ukrainian: Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva, Irina Sharipova and Dasha Khlystun) will also not be able to land in Shanghai for the show for the same reason; rejection of visa. Representatives from the models' agencies and Victoria's Secret declined to comment on the situation or did not respond INSIDER's requests for comment.
