Victoria's Secret held its annual fashion show in NYC on Wednesday night, drawing some of the world's biggest models to the Big Apple to stomp the runway in skimpy lingerie. We've scoured shots from behind the scenes, on the runway, at the afterparty, and even on social media to find the must-drop-everything-and-click pictures from the big night. Keep clicking to count down the top shots from the sexiest fashion show of the year!
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show went down at the Lexington Avenue Armory in NYC on Wednesday night, with appearances from its most famous Angels: Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, and Candice Swanepoel. All the action airs Dec. 10 on CBS, but before that, you can see all the fun from the makeup chair to the runway right here.
Adriana Lima, the longest-serving Angel in the show, was joined by a handful of newer models including Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, and Leonardo DiCaprio's current girlfriend, Toni Garrn. The models strutted their stuff on the runway in six separate segments — the "British Invasion" section featured a union jack-filled opening performance of "I Knew You Were Trouble" by Taylor Swift and Adriana sporting a special "Pearly Queen" look consisting of over 3,000 pearl buttons. The five following sections included "Birds of Paradise," "Parisian Nights," "Shipwrecked," "Snow Angels," and "PINK Network." There were a handful of memorable ensembles — Candice modeled the 2013 Fantasy Bra, covered in $10 million worth of diamonds, rubies, and sapphires, while Karlie Kloss donned an elaborate, psychedelic butterfly getup. Lindsay Ellingson also sported a superspecial look, wearing a special 3D printed costume (the first of its kind to ever be showcased by Victoria's Secret).
Absent from the brand's big night, of course, was former Angel Miranda Kerr, who parted ways from Victoria's Secret back in April. Despite being in Tokyo to promote her Elle Japan cover this week, Miranda offered words of support to her old coworkers by posting a throwback photo on Instagram with the caption, "Sending love and best wishes to the #vsangels from Japan."
Lights, camera, makeup! The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is taking over NYC today, and the Angels have been busy prepping all day for the biggest night in lingerie. Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, and more slipped into their pink robes and primped behind the curtains — but there was plenty of time for fun, too! In the shuffle of last-minute blowouts and fittings, the ladies posed for photos, shared a few laughs for the cameras, and even snapped their own sexy moments for social media. Take a look at all the action before the Angels rocked the catwalk with Fall Out Boy and Taylor Swift, and make sure to watch the whole show when it airs on CBS Dec. 10.
Meanwhile, Gwen Stefani debuted a shimmering, personality-packed gunmetal grey gown covered in fringe, and Freida Pinto showed off an embellished nude gown. Amy Adams took the shorter route — literally — in her flared navy Elie Saab Haute Couture dress accessorized with jewelry from Marina B.
Alessandra Ambrosio is a familiar face in our model off-duty gallery, but we think it's time she had her own style spotlight, especially in the Summer when we could all use a little stay-cool inspiration. Between her coloured denim, statement sunglasses, fabulous footwear, and shiny jewels, the model always manages to give us major outfit envy. The girl can wear the heck out of denim cutoffs, too! Want to witness? Click on to see Alessandra Ambrosio's boldest street style to date.
Although we love seeing our favourite models in laid-back looks on the sidewalks, we always do a double take when they hit the red carpet. We admit it, Miranda Kerr looks chic in a Panama hat, Kate Moss is always cool in a leather jacket, and Alessandra Ambrosio works denim cutoffs like no other, but these ladies and many more of our favourite girls have just as much style cred in fancy gowns. Want proof? Step inside to witness the top model red carpet moments from 2013 (so far)!
If there's one designer to keep on your radar it's Isabel Marant. The hot French clothing and accessories maven is about to launch an off the charts, affordable collection with H&M and her Blackson Boots that went on sale during the Wintertime are still as hot as ever. As you know, in the world of fashion, for an item to have this kind of star status and longevity, basically gives it cult status. The boots which come in black, taupe and deep red with various kinds of blue, white and silver stitching and studding are currently on sale now starting at £526.

It's no secret that overalls can be tricky to pull off. However, Rihanna and Alexa Chung are just two celebrities who've made a strong case for the '90s denim one-piece. Rihanna went more laid-back and casual in her Big Star USA overalls with a tight tee and kicks, while Alexa elevated her black overalls with ladylike add-ons. Plus, Selena Gomez and Alessandra Ambrosio tested out the trend too. Watch on for outfit inspiration just in time to wear overalls this weekend! On Allison: BCBG Max Azria, Elizabeth and James, TOMTOM.
