Live From the Runway: Inside the 18th Annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Candice Swanepoel rocked the $10 million fantasy bra, Taylor Swift danced with Karlie Kloss, and Adam Levine blew kisses to fiancée Behati Prinsloo. Plus, more runway highlights.

As usual, there were feathers and jewels galore at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Wednesday night. Opening the show was model Candice Swanepoel sporting the ten million dollar “Crown Jewels” Fantasy Bra as Fall Out Boy, clad in Tartan, and Taylor Swift, sporting a Union Jack coat and top hat, rocked out in the background. Cara Delevingne wore a sexy soccer uniform, Lily Donaldson’s lingerie was accessorized with an umbrella and bowler’s hat, and Jourdan Dunn was reminiscent of a sexy Mary Poppins. Talk about British invasion.

Throughout the six segments, Indie band A Great Big World played a more somber tune, as models showed off get-ups comprised of driftwood and torn fabric; Brit girl band Neon Jungle danced around the stage while outfits decorated with smiley faces and blow-up hearts paraded down the runway; and 13-time angel Adriana Lima opened the “Parisian Nights” section donning a romantic pair of gigantic red wings. Plus, model Behati Prinsloo received three standing ovations from her beaming fiancé, Adam Levine. 

For the finale, the “Snow Angels” took to the stage in white, angelic get-ups as Taylor Swift – in a silver, sequined mini – belted out her hit “I Knew You Were Trouble.” There was a flirty little dance-off between Swift and Kloss (can we say new BFF’s?) amid snow-like confetti falling from the ceiling and lots of winks and blown kisses.

The 18th Annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air December 10 on CBS.
