Rihanna rocked the lingerie look at this week’s Victoria's Secret fashion show in New York. She provided the highlight of the live-music soundtrack – and held her own on the catwalk with some of the world's top models.
And those models even had props, including Adriana Lima's ringmaster wand, Doutzen Kroes' body cage and several pairs of the oversized wings that the retailer has made its signature.
It would be a close contest who got the biggest wings: Toni Garrn's giant poppy pair or Miranda Kerr's swan-style feathered pouf. Only Lily Aldridge could boast star-spangled wings that shot out silver sparkles.
Alessandra Ambrosio's orchid-petal wings might have lacked a little grandeur, but she made up for it with a $2.5 million jeweled "floral fantasy bra."
Still, wearing a sheer pink mini that gave glimpses of her bra, Rihanna sang Fresh Out the Runway at the end of the corset-and-garter parade – and she was the one to grab the audience's biggest applause.
The fashion show has become a pre-holiday season tradition for the retailer. The show also had performances from Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars.
For his first song, Beauty and the Beat, Bieber, wearing low-slung white pants and a white leather studded vest, sat alone with his guitarist in the mellowest part of the show. For As Long As You Love Me, however, he brought in backup dancers and interacted with the models while moving around a giant makeshift pinball machine.
