Victoria’s Secret SS2013 Fashion Show

Adriana Lima for Victoria Secret Show Alessandra Ambrosio Candice Swanepoel Nicholas Kirkwood shoes Nicholas Kirkwood shoes

One of the biggest and most expensive extravaganzas on the style calendar took place in New York last week – The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. 65 different looks parading down the catwalk, 28 pairs of wings, a riot of colours, crystals and jaw-dropping costumes, this year’s show took circus, blooms and Dangerous Liaisons as its themes.

Of course, all eyes were on the famous Angels who showed off their toned physiques in the skimpiest of lingerie, bodysuits and basques. Alessandra Ambrosio was bestowed the honour of modelling this year’s fantasy bra – worth $2.5 million – while Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars performed live on stage.

The fancy footwear on the Victoria’s Secret catwalk this year came courtesy of Nicholas Kirkwood – who created an entire new collection especially for this year’s show. Sandals crept vine-like up calves, high-top trainers came complete with roller-skate wheels and towering platform sandals were covered in sparkling crystals – the effect being that the footwear almost risked upstaging the costumes.

The fashion show will be aired on December 4, 10/9c, on CBS or you can watch a snip on youtube
