Victoria's Secret gala hits snag in China as model pulls out

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is usually associated with fireworks, glitter, and general extravagance - but this year all of that has gone up in smoke.

On Thursday, Gigi Hadid announced on Twitter that she won't be walking in the fashion show.

Gigi apologised on China's Twitter-like Weibo on September 1, declaring her "respect and love for the people of China".

Though the reason for all the denials remains unclear, there's a theory that it might come down to social media.

Some of Victoria's Secret's biggest names have been denied entry to China, in addition to lesser-known models, such as Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva and Irina Sharipova. "Victoria's Secret is not going to comment on that", he said, referring line-up questions to each model's individual agencies.
