CW69 is bringing you the sexiest night on television a.k.a., the “Victoria’s Secret Annual Fashion Show” this Wednesday at 9pm!
Like every year, the $12 million production is a night of color, sparkle, themes, elaborate costumes, and great performances — this year’s musical guests include by Rihanna, Bruno Mars, and Justin Bieber.

The first runway segment was a Circus theme, complete with acrobats, men on stilts, and even a sword-swallower. There was a Calendar Girls theme, where an Angel walked the runway for each month of the year, a giant-pinball machine for the PINK Collection, a Hollywood-glamor theme called “Secret Studios”, and a flowery “Angels in Bloom” theme before the final walk-out.
The infamous “Fantasy Bra”, worn by one of the Angels every year, was donned by the beautiful Alessandra Ambrosio. This year’s Fantasy Bra was a jewel-heavy $2.5 million piece, created by London Jewelers, and sparkled with amethysts, rubies, sapphires and diamonds, including a stunning 20-carat white diamond in the middle.
This year’s star-studded special kicked off with an announcer noting that Victoria’s Secret and CBS (part owner of The CW) had each donated to superstorm Sandy relief efforts. The announcement also thanked the National Guard members based out of the Lexington Avenue Armory in Manhattan, where the annual show takes place.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2012 will air again this Wednesday, Dec. 12th, on CW69.
