Kanye West, Jay Z and Nicki Minaj help turn Victoria's Secret annual fashion show into a party.


NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES (NOVEMBER 09, 2011) (VICTORIA'S SECRET) - The ladies of Victoria's Secret hit the runway for the U.S. lingerie store's annual fashion show.


Broken up into six themes, model Candice Swanepoel kicked off the show in a look inspired by ballet. The South African beauty strutted down the glittery catwalk in purple feather wings and a tutu like skirt.

Next, Australian model Miranda Kerr was cheered on by her husband, actor Orlando Bloom, as she modeled a red silk wrap and tutu.

Rapper Kanye West finally made his Victoria's Secret debut after the unexpected death of his mother forced him to cancel in 2007. West performed his classic hit "Stronger" for the "Super Angels" section, and then surprised the audience by bringing out his current rap partner Jay Z.

Model Alessandra Ambrosio led the models for the "Passion" chapter of the show, which featured angels in Spanish influenced looks.

Miranda Kerr returned in the "Angles Aquatic" section wearing the famed Fantasy Treasure Bra. The $2.5 million (USD) bra was created by London Jewelers. The garment is comprised of nearly 3400 precious gems including white and yellow diamonds, citrines, aquamarines and pearls-all set in 18 karat white and yellow gold.

Rock group Maroon 5 kept the girls moving during the "I Put a Spell On You" segment. Lead singer Adam Levine walked the catwalk with his model girlfriend Anne Vyalitsina, and added to her look with a quick kiss.

Colorful "Club Pink" fashions was the perfect fit for bold rapper Nicki Minaj who had fun strutting alongside Erin Heatherton. Models were dressed not only in neon colors, but also lights in the most vibrant part of the collection.
The entire show will air on the U.S. television network CBS on November 29.
