Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, New York

Taylor Swift sparkled amid the Victoria’s Secret ‘Angel’ models at the lingerie brand’s runway show in New York last night. The dramatic show took a distinctly British turn as depicted by Swift’s Britannia ensemble. Abigail Parkin (14 Nov’13)

The singer led the performances at last night's Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show with the Angels often joining Swift’s singalong in their outré lingerie and wings at New York’s Lexington Armory. 

Star of the show had to be this year’s $10 million (yes,10m!) Fantasy Bra strutted by model Candice Swanepoel. British models Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn joined Angels Karlie Kloss, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge and Adriana Lima on the glittery runway.

 Maroon 5’s Adam Levine gazed on as his fiancée Behati Prinsloo sashayed down in huge bespoke angel wings.

 Fall Out Boy opened the musical performances and Taylor Swift later hit the catwalk in a glittery dress that resembled that very catwalk for the “Snow Angels” part of the show.

Predictably, theming loomed large at the show:  "British Invasion," "Birds of Paradise," "Parisian Nights," "PINK Network," "Shipwrecked" and "Snow Angels."

 Taylor Swift roused the audience and the runway with I Knew You Were Trouble with  the Angels unable to resist joining in her performance.
