NEW YORK • Wings, stilettos and lots of skin returned to the runway at the latest Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which was taped in New York on Tuesday.

And what a dazzling show it was.

Joining top models Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima were Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, who made their debuts as angels.

And it was Lily Aldridge, the wife of Kings of Leon rocker Caleb Followill, who wore the US$2-million (S$2.84-million) Fireworks Fantasy Bra. She strutted down the runway at New York City's Lexington Avenue Armory, while Canadian singer The Weeknd performed.

Pop stars including Selena Gomez and Ellie Goulding also performed.

The show airs on Dec 8 in the United States on CBS.
