All the Pictures From the 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show
The Victoria's Secret runway extravaganza took over the Lexington Avenue Armory about a month ago in NYC — and it's finally airing on TV tonight! Between the musical acts and the amazing costumes on the Angels, it was an event to remember. Candice Swanepoel was the first down the catwalk in the "Ballet" portion of the show, the first of six-themed sections that also included "Super Angels," "Passion," "Angels Aquatic," "I Put a Spell on You," and "Club Pink."
Kanye West was finally able to perform for VS after cancelling his 2007 appearance after the sudden death of his mother, Donda West. He went on to sing "Stronger" as the Angels walked by him on stage, then Jay-Z came out for an amazing duo on their Watch the Throne song "N*ggas in Paris." Beyoncé even came out to see Jay in action, taking a front row seat only for the duration of the track. Orlando Bloom was front and centre to cheer on his wife, Miranda, who took multiple turns down the catwalk and finally wore Victoria's Secret's $2.5 million Fantasy Treasure Bra.
In addition to Jay and Kanye, Maroon 5 performed "Moves Like Jagger" and lead singer Adam Levine broke from the band temporarily to place a big kiss on the cheek of his angel girlfriend, Anne V. Nicki Minaj wrapped things up with a rendition of "Super Bass," with newcomer Karlie Kloss closing the show in her fluorescent wings. Nicki danced with the Angels during their final balloon and confetti-filled procession down the runway.
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airs tonight at 7:30 p.m. on Fox8.
