The annual lingerie extravaganza that is The Victoria’s Secrets Fashion Show took place last night and despite the show being all about the ‘chosen Angels’, pop superstar Rihanna managed to grab all the headlines with her raunchy on-stage ensemble and typically provocative performance.
Wearing a corset and black suspenders, the 24-year-old Barbadian songstress fitted in seamlessly amongst the Angels, as she performed her new songs, Diamonds and the appropriately titled, Fresh Off the Runway.
The star also wore a barely-there pink outfit and as she sang, RiRi showed off her cheeky and playful side, as she interacted with the models on the catwalk. Unsurprisingly, Rihanna also took to Twitter to share various backstage snaps with her millions of followers, including this uber-sexy shot of her reclining on a couch, wearing nothing but stockings, suspenders and high-heels. Oh, and of course, she was blowing smoke from her mouth, as she so frequently does, IN ALL OF HER PICTURES.
Rihanna wasn’t the only guest performer of the night, as Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars also serenaded the scantily-clad supermodels.
Justin Bieber undoubtedly lived out every boy’s fantasy, as he performed his tracks, As Long as You Love Me and Beauty and the Beat, as the likes of Miranda Kerr and Adriana Lima strutted their stuff behind him. Lima looked sensational, as she showed off her post-baby body, in Heidi Klum/typical VS style.
The 31-year-old only gave birth eight weeks ago, but as she donned a red lace ensemble, there wasn’t an ounce of baby fat to be seen. It’s probably ‘all that running around after my new born baby’ that has her so slim and not the 23782 hours in the gym!
Doutzen Kroes looked amazing as she showed off her impossibly gorgeous body, leading the way for the circus-themed underwear show, and Victoria’s Secrets veterns Allessandra Ambrosio, who was wearing a $2.5m ‘Fantasy Bra’ and Miranda Kerr were all on hand to display the label’s newest creations.
However, there were some new faces on the catwalk, as 20-year-old Burberry model and Harry Styles’ rumoured girlfriend, Cara Delevingne made her debut on the VS stage. Looking sensational in a candy-coloured outfit, Cara walked the runway as Justin Bieber performed. Cara was one of three British models at the New York show, as fellow Burberry model, Jourdan Dunn and Vogue cover-girl, Lily Donaldson all became VS Angels for the night.
The show, which was held in New York’s Lexington Avenue Armory, and will be televised on CBS on December 4, opened with the announcement that both Victoria’s Secrets and CBS had made a donation to help with the relief efforts, caused by Superstorm Sandy.
