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

The annual Victoria's Secret fashion show will go on later this month, but it will be without Gigi Hadid. Most recently, Katy Perry was denied a visa to perform there for her political messaging in 2015.

"For every artist who wants to perform in China, officials comb through their social-media and press reports to see if they have done anything deemed to be offensive to the country", a source told Page Six.

Sources told Page Six that Hadid, who was booked for the show back in August, was banned because of a February Instagram video - in which she held up a biscuit shaped like a Buddha and imitated the religious figure by squinting her eyes.

"I'm so bummed I won't be able to make it to China this year. Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!" she wrote on Thursday.

Bella Hadid is still scheduled to walk, and arrived in Shanghai this morning ahead of the show, which will be aired on November 28.

Speculation also has swirled over the participation of Russia's Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva and Irina Sharipova, and Ukraine's Dasha Khlystun, after unconfirmed reports suggested they were denied Chinese visas. People.com speculated that the decision could be related to a Snapchat video Hadid posted earlier this year (that resurfaced this summer after her casting was announced).

Forget "teenage dream", because Katy Perry is likely living out her nightmare. "I have learned to be very careful of how my actions can come off or be portrayed, and I'm hopeful you'll accept my apology", the post said. Last night, she appeared on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon", where she and the host modeled two of the pairs.

Harper's Bazaar said other Victoria's Secret Angel models expected to make the show include Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Josephine Skriver, Lais Ribeiro, Lily Aldridge, Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio, Stella Maxwell, Taylor Hill, and Candice Swanepoel.

A Victoria's Secret spokesman declined comment, referring questions about the model line-up to each woman's individual agencies.
