After filming the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai earlier today, the VS models headed to the official afterparty to celebrate. However, the festivities were cut short by local authorities, WWD reports.
The models—including Bella Hadid, Alessandra Ambrosio, Jasmine Tookes, and more—made their way to the party in a neighboring building after they finished filming the fashion show at around 9 p.m. Ten minutes before midnight, however, the music abruptly stopped and a number of uniformed police officers started to enter the venue, according to WWD.
“They want us to finish. We are sorry, we tried,” said a woman directing the crowd on a microphone. Luckily the models were able to get their photos on the pink carpetand get some dancing in at the party before it ended prematurely.
As of right now, the reason for the unexpected shutdown has not yet been confirmed.
This is just the latest of issues Victoria’s Secret has encountered while producing this year’s fashion show in Shanghai. Days before today’s filming, it was reported that Katy Perry, who was expected to perform, was denied a Chinese visa. Top model Gigi Hadid, who was previously confirmed to walk in today’s show, was also reportedly banned from entering the country. Several other models, and some bloggers who were planning to attend and cover the event, were also reportedly denied entry.
