Welcome to the Show
They say every time you hear a bell ring, an angel gets its wings. Well, expect sirens of five-alarm proportions tonight, because it’s time for the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (airing on Dec. 10, 10 p.m. on CBS). Supermodels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and a bevy of winged beauties strut their stuff—thus affirming it’s a wonderful life, after all.Victoria's Secret's Hottest Angels Ever >>>
The California native has a few Fashion Shows under her bejeweled belt, and yet she still finds it “so nerve-racking,” she tells Men’s Fitness. “There’s no other time when you have to walk in your underwear in front of millions of people.”Get Intimate with Victoria's Secret Model Lily Aldridge >>>
Sure, fiancé Adam Levine is the reigning Sexiest Man Alive. But seeing this South African supermodel strut down the runway—her seventh VS Fashion Show—Adam just might be the Luckiest.
"Lingerie helps make a woman feel sensual,” the Dutch Angel tells Men’s Fitness. “When I get dressed, it's the first thing I pick out.”
As if killer looks weren’t enough, this Brazilian beauty also packs a mean punch (Adriana gets runway ready by training in the boxing ring). And though she exhibits a quiet confidence on stage, she’s actually a ball of nerves up there. “Being nervous is a good thing,” she tells Men’s Fitness. “It means that you care.”
The statuesque supermodel—Karlie is 6’1”—hails from the Midwest (Chicago/St. Louis).
If Lindsay were a spice, she says she would be “cinnamon.” And no tighty whities for this California native—she prefers her guys in boxer briefs.
Think you're strong? Try walking with a pair of 50-pound wings on your back—in heels—which is what this Brazilian beauty has had to do during the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
The Puerto Rican native is currently the top-ranked supermodel of the world (according to models.com). And Joan possesses beauty and brains—she finished her psychology degree (magna cum laude!) in two years instead of four.
What's on this Illinois native's bucket list? To learn to speak French fluently. And one thing she can't live without: coconuts (which explains why St. Bart's is her favorite place in the world).
This South African stunner looks like a million bucks—$10 million, actually. The blond bombshell gets the honors of donning the Royal Fantasy Bra at this year’s fashion show. The bra-and-belt combo features 4,200 precious gems, including rubies, diamonds, and yellow sapphires set in 18-carat gold, with a 52-carat ruby as its centerpiece.
