The Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show is one of the most highly anticipated events of the year for many. This Tuesday, the show took place in New York in the presence of a live audience. FashionUnited presents an overview of all highlights of the 20th edition. Brace yourself for revealing lingerie, angel wings and a lot of Dutch models.
Angel debut: Romee Strijd
Romee Strijd entered the Victoria's Secret runway for the second time this year, but it was the first time she did so as an Angel. Victoria´s Secret Angels are the brand´s ambassadors who have the honour of wearing wings on stage. Her debut for Victoria´s Secret has meant a great increase in her popularity. The 20-year old has already been likened to supermodel Doutzen Kroes.

The honour of wearing the Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra was for Lily Aldridge. The item, which is made from 6.500 gemstones and 18 karat gold, has a price tag of 2 million dollars (1,3 million pounds). What you can get for that price? Stylight presents a list of 20 things; see it here.
Behati Prinsloo was the first model to enter the runway. With ´Heartbreaker´ playing in the background, she made her appearance in a rainbow outfit. The Love-letter wings that Prinsloo wore, were created by Julie Wilkinson and Joyanne Horscroft: the duo who was responsible for five pairs of wings that were worn during the show. In an interview with Elle.com, they revealed that the completion of one wing generally took around one to two weeks. Another remarkable design from Wilkinson and Horscroft was a pair of wings featuring fireworks.
