See pictures of the Victoria's Secret Angels walking the catwalk at the first ever London show
The Victoria’s Secret Angels hit the catwalk last night for the US lingerie brand’s first ever show in London.
The UK version was as fun, theatrical and spectacular as ever and saw some very famous names taking to the stage.
VS regulars Karlie Kloss, Candice Swanepoel and Alessandro Ambrosio (who wore this year’s fantasy bra, worth $2million) all turned heads as they sashayed down the runway wearing seriously sexy ensembles.
Lily Aldridge wore an electric blue set as one of her looks for the show. Finished off with spiky black wings and bondage wrist bands, this look was all bad girl and very little angel.
Puerto Rican beauty Joan Smalls was full of confidence as she strutted her stuff before the crowd. The pieces she modelled included a daring black bodice featuring cut-out detailing and a polka dotty tulle overlay, and something sassy from the retailer’s exotics collection.
British girls Lily Donaldson and Jourdan Dunn also commanded attention on the evening. Lily’s outfit was decorated with 150,000 Swarovski crystals, while Jourdan flaunted her physique in a silky bustier.
A bouncy bob completed the Londoner’s sensational look.
Leggy French model Constance Jablonski was the only girl to walk the catwalk in actual clothes. But Her fringed dress still had an underwear as outwear touch, with a see-through bodice and bra neckline.
With a campaign for Estee Lauder already under her belt, we’re sure the brunette was thrilled to add the Victoria’s Secret show to her CV.
Special guest performers included pop superstars Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande, plus singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran and newcomer Hozier.
In true Victoria’s Secret style, the fashion event ended with a show-stopping finale. Led by Alessandra, the girls displayed their best dance moves surrounded by white balloons.

The Puerto Rican beauty wore lace wings and a black bodice with cut out detailing and a polka dot tulle over lay, which covered her matching black bra.
There was a lot of black lace on the VS catwalk, so it was fitting that guest performer, Taylor Swift matched her outfit to Angel, Adriana Lima.
Polish model, Magdalena, wore one of the most angelic outfits of the night, in an all-white lace ensemble, which was topped off with dark green feathered wings.
The Victoria’s Secret Angels know how to have a good time on the catwalk, as Adriana Lima expertly demonstrates.
Swedish model, Elsa, was officially given her angel wings earlier this year, making her one of the newest recruits to the show, despite having made her VS debut in 2012.
VS Angel, Lily wore an electric blue set as one of her looks for the runway. Finished off with spiky black wings and bonage wrist bands, this look was all bad girl and very litle angel.
It was just last year that Taylor Swift performed on the VS runway, but her new album has blown the competition out of the water, making her a smart choice for the London show too.
Behati revealed she stays away from carbs, sugar and salt before a VS show and the regime is clearly paying off. The African model is also the face of the brand’s sister label, Pink.
This look is from VS’s Exotic Traveller collection and was one of the most colourful of the evening. Joan’s style and beauty icon is Rihanna, who we think would definitely approve of this outfit.
At just over five feet tall, Ariana could have been lost on the runway amongst the Angels but the singer held her own in a racy outfit.
Candice received her angel wings in 2010 and has been a permanent fixture on the runway and in adverts ever since. With her killer figure and natural beauty, it’s easy to see why she’s one of the most popular Angels.
One of the newest Angel recruits, Elsa only earned her wings this year. Hailing from Sweden, Elsa originally juggled modelling with professional basketball. We think she made the right choice in the end.
Can you believe Doutzen Kroes gave birth just five months ago? Neither can we. The model credits ballet with helping to snap those abs back into shape.
Ed Sheeran said he prepared for the Victoria’s Secret Show by eating a sausage roll in his dressing room. Not quite the usual glamour we’re used to seeing at these events!
We love the dark drama of Victoria’s Secret’s London show. Full of black lace and tulle, there was definitely a winter, gothic vibe on the runway.
One of the original Angels, Adriana has been walking the show since 1999 and has been an official Angel since 2000.
Lily looked cute as a button in this fluffy powder pink and ivory look – we love the powder puff bag and icy blue shoes.
Now one of the luckiest men in showbiz, Irish musician, Hozier serendaded the Angels with songs from hisdebut album from the same name. He also admitted he didn’t recognise any of the models before the show…
The Brazilian beauty was one of only two Angels to wear the famous Fantasy Bra. The bra is worth $2 million and comprised of rubies, diamonds, sapphires and 18-karat gold.
The all-American model spread her wings for the VS runway in this shimmering look in head-to-toe gold.
Taylor’s second look of the night consisted of a pale pink and black robe with matching négligée and fluffy pink slippers.
The youngest Angel, Karlie is known for her signature walk. Dubbed ‘The Panther’, her walk transforms her from girl next door in Victoria’s Secret vamp.
Taylor Swift performed her hits in some seriously sexy outfits as the Angels walked the runway. We love this all-over lace dress, with high waisted shorts and full bra.
Doutzen became and Angel in 2008, but has walked the VS runway since 2005. She laos has two children and works with non-profit organisation, Dance4Life, which educates young people about HIV and AIDS through song and dance.
The French model was the only girl to walk the runway in actual clothes. Her fringe dress still had an underwear as outwear touch, with a see-through bodice and bra neckline.
Izabel got possibly the best wings of the night with her huge pink and blue creation. Her footwear was also pretty spectacular.
We love this warrior princess look, which was a stand out piece amongst all the black and white lace.
Is that a top on the VS runway? Don’t worry, it was transparant and teamed with jet black underwear.
Alessandra has been a Victoria’s Secret model for more than 10 years and is a global spokensperson for the brand.
Cindy worked the catwalk in one of this year’s gold outfits, completed by chrub-style wings and ivory lace underwear.
How cool are Karlie’s folded wings? We love this Roman-inspired look.
The Londoner, who was excited to be walking a VS show on home turf, pouted her way through the evening, strutting down the catwalk to Hozier’s tunes.
Candice flashed some seriously toned abs on the runway. The model said she steps up her boxing regime three weeks before the show, to make sure she is in the best shape possible.
A vision in gold, Candice looked amazing in everything she wore, but we especially loved this glittering look.
And the back view…
Embodying the theme of the evening, it’s fitting that ‘The Panther’ wore this black cloak to strut down the runway like a true predator.
Some of the lesser known models were still given wings to walk down the catwalk and still get to showcase some of the most exciting designs from the collection.
The girls walked the runway together one last time for the finale.
The girls stick around on stage for the final act, dancing and cheering with the crowd to mark the end of a monumental show.
As one of the original Angels, Alessandra Ambrosio led the way for the final walk down the famous runway.
