It only gets bigger and better with each passing year -- and the Victoria's Secret Angels are even hotter!

Lingerie giant Victoria's Secret held their annual fashion show in New York last night.

But of course, it was much more than just a fashion show -- with dance performances, world-famous musicians and supermodels getting their groove on, it was a full-scale production that cost a staggering 12 million dollars!

Artistes Jay-Z, Kanye West, Maroon 5 and Nicki Minaj performed live as supermodels like Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio sizzled on the runway. The themes behind the lingerie ranged from ballet and college funk to Spanish passion and mermaid goddesses.

And like every year, the showstopper was a dazzling $2.5 million 'Fantasy Treasure' bra -- don't miss it!

First up we have model Caroline Winberg in a beautiful cutwork shimmer bodysuit reminiscent of a magical underwater world.
