Here’s What You Missed At The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

victoria's secret fashion show 2012

[credit provider=”Bryan Bedder/Getty Images”]

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs tonight at 10 p.m. on CBS.This year’s event, which had a circus theme, was one of the most elaborate ever. We were there when they taped the show last month and have exclusive images 

The show started with a full-on circus, complete with acrobats, a sword-swallower and a man on stilts. Justin Bieber, Rihanna and Bruno Mars performed.

Despite the huge production, the focus was on the 40 gorgeous models who walked the runway.

Adriana Lima sizzled in red, while Alessandra Ambrosio looked amazing just months after giving birth.

Other favourites like Erin Heatherton, Doutzen Kroes and Karlie Kloss also walked.
