Victoria’s Secret, desperate to update its image, is pulling its star-studded fashion show from the airwaves this year.

The lingerie maker, which has held the lavish fashion event every year but one since 1995, has “decided to rethink” the show, Les Wexner, founder of parent company L Brands Inc., said in an email to staff.
