Young supermodel Taylor Hill completed her third season as a VS runway model at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016. The model first strutted down the runway in a vibrant outfit, complete with a headpiece and thigh-high aqua colored boots, and made one outfit change into some sultry black lingerie, paired with the signature sheer black Victoria’s Secret Angel wings. No stranger to the VS runway, Hill didn’t reign in her fierceness as she modelled for the luxury lingerie line for the third time.
Feeling grateful post-fashion show, Hill took to Instagram to extend her thanks to producer Razek, boyfriend Michael Stephen Shank, casting director John Pfeiffer, modelling agency IMG Models, 10 Magazine, and co-producer Monica Mitro—all individuals who contributed to Taylor Hill’s VSFS 2016 success.

And also a HUGE thank you to the amazing @victoriassecret team and @ed_razek @monica.mitro @10magazine @imgmodels @michaelstephenshank @johndavidpfeiffer for believing in me you are all so special to me ❤️ BEST NIGHT EVER (I'm about to blow up instagram so get ready)
VSFS 2016 in Paris
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was held in the City of Lights for the first time this year. As a hotspot for all things fashion and lingerie, we’re surprised the brand took so long to get here! Chief marketing officer and executive producer of the fashion show, Ed Razek, told the Los Angeles Times, “It doesn’t get any bigger than this in the fashion world. Paris is the home of fashion. It’s the home of lingerie and it’s the home of fashion shows. It’s a very big deal to be at the Grand Palais.”
Razek is insanely committed to his role behind Victoria`s Secret Fashion Show. He’s been overseeing the entire show since its inception 23 years ago, in 1995. Learning and improving from each show, Razek has helped make the annual VSFS the internationally renowned spectacle it is now. It is now watched by millions across the globe.
Taylor Hill and Boyfriend, Michael Stephen Shank
Despite her busy and demanding life as a supermodel for Victoria’s Secret—as well as other high-end brands like Chanel and Miu Miu—Taylor Hill still finds time for love. Cozying up on social media with long time boyfriend, Michel Stephen Shank, Hill isn’t shy about making her relationship public. Hill, 20, and Shank, 31, have been dating for just over a year. As Shank is also an American actor and model, their relationship is often in the spotlight. The couple was spotted on the red carpet together at the 2016 VMAs just a few months ago.
No Hard Feelings Between Taylor Hill and Gigi Hadid
Taylor Hill and Gigi Hadid share a modelling agency and often cross paths on the runway. Considering that Hadid and Shank used to share a romantic relationship, one might think that this would make things awkward between the models. However, the two maintain a professional and amicable relationship with each other. These two VS Angels are so close, Hill even went so far as to share a congratulatory message on Instagram when Hadid announced the news of her upcoming collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger. Hill posted a photo on Instagram, captioning the shot “Tommy Hilfiger!!! tommyhilfiger #TommyxGigi congrats on this collection @gigihadid ”
