The annual underwear extravaganza was held at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City, where the top world models graced on catwalk in sexy lingerie with outrageous feather wings.

The show that stars Angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Candice Swanepoel, Lindsay Ellingson, Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes and Behati Prinsloo, plus a few celeb and surprise guests, will be aired on CBS Television in the US on Tuesday 10th December.

On Tuesday Victoria’s Secret announced that Taylor Swift will serve as the headliner for Wednesday’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The 23-year-old singer joins a lineup that already includes Fall Out Boy, Neon Jungle, and A Great Big World.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has played host to big-name performers in recent years. The 2012 show featured Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Bruno Mars, while other past performers have included Jay-Z, Maroon 5, Kanye West, Katy Perry, and Justin Timberlake.

This year the Brazilian models, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima, were the high fliers of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Wednesday night.

Alessandra showed off her perfectly toned tummy, endless legs and enviable curves as she sported a lacy pale blue bra and panties with black and pale pink feather ‘wings’ with even her high heels adorned with feather details.

The 32-year-old Adriana was even more vibrant in a scarlet bustier, matching stockings and an enormous feather boa. Alessandra’s feathery design was part of the Birds Of Paradise section of the show while Adriana sported her scarlet ensemble for Parisian Nights.

The other segments in the show were The British Invasion, Shipwrecked, Snow Angels and PINK Network in a show which featured more models than ever before strutting down the glittery runway.

Lima, who is a mother of two, revealed in 2011 that she had eaten nothing but protein shakes for nine days leading up to the show. But this year, she insists she hasn’t done anything strict to get in shape.

The 28-year-old Dutch beauty, Doutzen Kroes, graced in multiple looks during the show including a snow and ice inspired outfit (complete with a headpiece) as well as a strappy all-black bra and panty duo.

“The show motivates me,” Miss Kroes explained, adding, “music [too] and knowing you have to be in lingerie is the biggest motivation to go to the gym!”

Victoria’s Secret Angel, Lindsay Ellingson, shared about the show, saying: “This is my seventh show and I feel like every year I get more excited and nervous for some reason,” Lindsay said about the show. “It feels like a holiday!”

As for the coveted VS Angel wings, the blonde beauty exclaimed, “They’re very heavy. It’s a challenge to wear the wings, but at the same time it’s so exciting. Everyone wants to wear the biggest wings in the fashion show.”

British model — and Rihanna’s BFF — Cara Delevingne told the NY Daily News before the show that her outfit this year is so extravagant that she isn’t even allowed to talk about it.

“It’s going to be wicked,” said Delevingne, who has worn the brand’s infamous wings in years past. Despite her experience on the lingerie world’s biggest runway, she still feels the pressure.

The section also featured Taylor Swift who appears to have got over her bad break up with British boy band star Harry Styles to embrace the British flag.  The 23-year-old singer stepped out in a Union Jack costume combined with matching flag boots and hat.

Candice Swanepoel showed off her incredible body as she sauntered confidently along the runway wearing the $10 million Fantasy Bra.

Following in the footsteps of Miranda Kerr, Tyra Banks, Gisele BĂĽndchen, Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima and Claudia Schiffer, Candice was picked to showcase the lingerie brand’s multi-million dollar bra, says the Daily Mail.
