Outside the National Guard's 69th Infantry Regiment headquarters, it was a chilly night in New York. Inside, where the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was underway, the atmosphere was hot as models took to a stage adorned at various times with shipwreck props, British flags and street lamps.
Wearing millions of dollars of diamonds, Swarovski crystals and lingerie, Victoria's Secret Angels hit the catwalk during the brand's annual runway event. The L Brands-owned chain kicks off each holiday-selling season with a star-studded show to generate excitement about the upcoming collection.
This year's show started with a performance by the Rutgers University marching-drum line, followed by the extravaganza's first theme, "British Invasion."
Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy and Neon Jungle performed during two identical runs of the show, each lasting about 30 minutes.
It will air on CBS on Dec. 10 at 10 p.m. EST. Click ahead to see scenes from this year's event.
