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.
