The Victoria's Secret catwalk show is undeniably the sexiest event in the fashion calender.
The world's biggest supermodels, including Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Helena Christensen, Stephanie Seymour and Gisele Bundchen, have graced the U.S. underwear firm's catwalk over the last 10 years.
The shows aren't just stunning women strutting up and down the catwalk in their underwear - the event is a big-budget extravaganza featuring live music from top artists and flamboyant accessories, including angel and bird wings.
