It's called the 'sexiest show on earth' for a reason -- don't miss the Victoria's Secret Angels in action on the runway!

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

And as always, it was much more than just a fashion show -- acrobats and world-famous rockstars performed as the biggest names in modelling paraded their amazing figures in the brand's innerwear.

Artistes Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars performed live as beauties like Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima and Doutzen Kroes sizzled on the runway. Elaborate ensembles fitting in with six separate themes -- 'Circus', 'Dangerous Liaisons', 'Calendar Girls', 'Pink Is Us', 'Silver Screen Angels' and 'Angels in Bloom' -- took everyone's breath away.

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

First up we have Aussie stunner Miranda Kerr in a deep green bodysuit festooned with silver stars, complete with matching feathered cape.
