Victoria’s Secret Runway Show: Nicki Minaj, Kanye West & More (Photos)

Victoria’s Secret’s 16th annual fashion show doesn't air on CBS until Nov. 29, but photographer Kevin Tachman got a behind-the-scenes look at the Angels, who taped the TV special Wednesday night in New York. After getting primped and polished in their hot-pink silk robes, the industry’s hottest models—including Miranda Kerr, Chanel Iman, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss, Adriana Lima, Doutzen Kroes, Erin Heatherton, Lily Aldridge, and Lindsey Ellingson—strapped on their wings and strutted down the runway. As if the Angels weren’t enough, there were also performances by Nicki Minaj, Maroon 5, and newfound fashion designer Kanye West, who posed with the models backstage. See photos of what happened both on and off the catwalk.
