The 20th show was definitely one to remember.
It's that time of the year again, where we get to see the best the lingerie world has to offer in the shape of Victoria's Secret's glamorous annual fashion show. It's probably the only runway in the world where the models are allowed to smile, and this time they welcome new addition Kendall Jenner to their flock.
Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015
Last night's event (November 10th 2015) was a bit of a landmark for the underwear company, who celebrated their 20th Fashion Show in New York's Lexington Armory. It also saw a wide variety of themes such as 'Fireworks', 'Butterflies' and 'Snow Angel', all of which showed off these models to the fullest extent.
Plus, there was the usual awesome array of live music. Sadly no Taylor Swift again this year, but her bestie Selena Gomez turned up armed with her new song 'Me & My Girls', alongside Ellie Goulding and The Weeknd - the latter of whom is dating VS newbie Gigi Hadid's sister Bella.

Of course, Kendall Jenner was the highlight. Though not officially granted Victoria's Secret Angel status, she walked the runway for the first time wearing a primary colours with an ocean-esque skirt and then a simple baby blue lace ensemble. The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star earlier admitted to New York Daily News that she had banned her famous sisters - Khloe, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian, as well as Kylie Jenner - from attending the event, though did allow parents Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner to watch her. 'I told them all to stay away', she said. 'It was too much pressure and I was like, 'Mom and Dad are good enough'. I just need the pressure off. There's enough pressure as it is.'

It was also the debut Victoria's Secret appearance of her friend Gigi Hadid who won at this year's First Annual Fashion Los Angeles Awards as Model Of The Year. The beauty, who recently ended her relationship with Joe Jonas, wore a sexy fire-fighter costume complete with a red PINK sports bra and matching pants, and she clutched a small toy dalmation as if she had rescued it from a burning building. Her other outfit was a glamorous teal and black butterfly angel look.

Official angels this year were Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge. Lima looked almost peacock-like as she flaunted her multi-coloured feathers during a performance by The Weeknd, and carried a flurry of green and blue butterflies on her back during Ellie Goulding.

Swedish model and newly instated Victoria's Secret Angel Elsa Hosk donned fluffy earmuffs with matching mittsn and snowflake adorned wings for her Snow Angel look, and went for a bold, psychedelic 60s print for her floaty alternative number; a definite success for this first timer.

Candice Swanepoel showed her winter spirit with a glittering nude bodysuit, fluffy shows and delicate foliaged wings and also adopted a hippy carnival look as she strutted down the runway in thigh-high suede boots and tasselled wings. It was a miracle she even made it this year, given that she'd been holed up in bed with the flu a mere five days before the show.

Standing out with a similar amount of tassel and suede boot-age was Angel Behati Prinsloo - wife of Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine - who had the legend 'Love' attached to her cartoon wings, and her disco snowflake wings reflected every light in the room beautifully. She actually opened the show for the second year running.

Lily Aldridge got to live her dream by donning this year's Fireworks Fantasy Bra; a piece designed by Mouawad worth an eye-watering $2 million. It's an 18-karat gold masterpiece encrusted with around 6,500 stones among which were a generous amount of diamonds and sapphires.

Sending sparks throughout the Armory was Victoria's Secret favourite Alessandra Ambrosio in a firework inspired pink, purple and green ensemble, and then a demure ice queen look with a feathered bodice and pink sparkling wings.

If anyone brought fire to the runway, however, it was surely Joan Smalls and her phoenix-like, Catherine Wheel back-piece, and later her brightly printed 60s cape and thigh-high leopard print boots.

Josephine Skriver and Devon Windsor went sexy police officer and blue surfer respectively, showing off items from the sporty PINK range. See more from this year's Victoria Secret models when the show airs on CBS on December 8th 2015.
