New York's freezing snowy weather couldn't stop fashion's biggest lingerie show - the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Victoria's Secret Angels braved the big bad nor'easter and hit the runway sporting sexy swimwear and scandalous lingerie. The pop stars performing-Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Bruno Mars-also showed up for the grand event, rocking the runway with some of their newest songs.
It may have been brick cold outside but it was hot and steamy in the Lexington Armory on Wednesday night. The annual fashion show was taped for the televised viewing on CBS on Dec. 4.
According to reports, getting in wasn't easy. The show had some intense security that even included bomb sniffing dogs - there was a $2.5 million Floral Fantasy bra in the house, you know. Luckily the bra was kept safe and sound and was presented by Alessandra Ambrosio.
"I'm tired but excited to be back," model Adriana Lima told USA Today. "It's the highlight of my year. I get nervous, every single time. I thought it would go away, but no."
During the backstage festivities, models were busy getting dolled up, talking politics, breakups, and initiating Rihanna as an honorary Victoria's Secret Angel.
Joan Smalls shared her views on President Barack Obama's reelection saying, "I fell asleep when they were making their predictions last night. My mom called me this morning and started screaming. It's nice to know that hope is possible."
Behati Prinsloo also talked current events. The super sexy swimsuit model was one of the many East Coasters that were affected by Hurricane Sandy; the stormed flooded her East Village apartment. Though her home was damaged, Prinsloo, who's dating Adam Levine, says she feels lucky, ""I have nothing to complain about. I feel very lucky."
E! News caught up with supermodel and Leonardo DiCaprio's recent ex Erin Heatherton, and asked her how she was coping with the big breakup. "I having the best time right now, here at the Victoria's Secret show," she told E! News. "I couldn't feel more beautiful with all my friends. It's wonderful."
Before tweeting a topless photo and smoking a blunt, Rihanna hung out with some of the Angels backstage. After taking several photos with the scantily-clad beauties, the modelesque singer earned her imaginary Angel wings as an honorary VS girl. "#LEGITmodelShit I'm a #VS girl now lol," Rihanna tweeted.
Both the models and the crowd were anxious to see the megastar musicians perform.
"We are where we are. I've done the best I can to get my body into shape. I'm here today and I'm going to enjoy the music," Miranda Kerr told USA.
Bieber rocked the house with "Beauty and the Beat" and his popular hit "As Long as You Love Me."
Bruno Mars also performed two songs; the dreamy singer sang "Locked Out of Heaven" and "Young Girls."
It was probably Rihanna who stole the show from her fellow pop stars and even the models. The stylish beauty, who could've passed as a model, worked the runway as she performed her "Unapologetic" hit single "Diamonds" and her newest material "Fresh Off the Runway." The singer donned some lingerie-inspired outfits to go along with her sexy performance.
The performers danced and rocked the runway as the scantily-clad models strutted their stuff. According to Fashionista, The glittery, winged, and bare-bottomed show was divided into six themes - Circus, Dangerous Liaisons, Calendar Girls, Pink is Us, Silver Screen Angels, and Angels in Bloom.
