It’s early March, which means winter is almost over and the sun is just about ready to start shining on the regular again–and what better way to celebrate than with a little beach fantasy? The 2016 Victoria’s Secret Swim Show photo gallery is here, in anticipation of this year’s installment of the swimwear fashion show and oceanside extravaganza. The Swim Show will air Wednesday, March 9th, on CBS; here’s the official trailer:
What exactly should viewers expect? The promotional materials advertise a grand total of 13 swimsuit models, and no fewer than 435 (!) different swimsuits. (For those of you keeping track at home, that’s 33.46 outfits per model. Feel free to add your own joke about what .46 of a swimsuit might look like.) And, as the trailer promises, there will also be performances by Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas, along with more tropical shenanigans than you’d care to count.
For the most part, though, the show is all about the baker’s dozen models appearing in as much jealousy-inducing and awe-inspiring swimwear as possible. For a complete preview, enjoy this 2016 Victoria’s Secret Swim show photo gallery:
