Too Hot!!!-Miami's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Victoria's Secret angels descended upon Miami Beach on the weekend to showcase the next season's fashion in women's underwear.

Singer Usher kicked off the Victoria's Secret show, which featured 35 supermodels, some wearing angel wings.

Models, including Heidi Klum and Miranda Kerr, strutted down the runway at the newly renovated Fontainebleau Miami Beach during the show, which coincided with the opulent reopening of the hotel.

"The theme of the show is a return to glamour," said company CEO Sharen Turney. "Victoria's Secret is about sexy, and the new sexy is glamorous for this season."

The catwalk glittered and two silver palm trees adorned the stage. Models showed 68 outfits, including the $US5 million ($7.5 million) Black Diamond Fantasy Miracle Bra worn by Adriana Lima and designed by jeweller Martin Katz.

It is decorated with white and black diamonds and rubies, and will be for sale in the company's catalogue, Katz said.

"You could wear it as an open top," he said. "It looks like a finished top."

Lima said she was excited to be wearing it.

"I always wanted to wear the Fantasy Bra. It's the first time that Victoria's Secret makes a black diamond bra," Lima said. "A woman could definitely buy it if they love it and men too."

Themes in the show included glamourous goddesses and bold colours with geometric designs influenced from the 1920s. Professional dancers wore one-piece bathing suits for one segment.

Some models wore gilded bras with Swarovski crystals attached. There was also a gold sculpted feather body piece that curved around the model's body. Metal sculpted laurel leaves were also worn around some of the models' necks.

For the finale, Klum stepped onto the catwalk in a red bra, underwear and sparkling, red wings, which were made to resemble a bow on a present.

Wing designer Martin Izquierdo made seven pairs of wings for the show. He said he turned to Greek mythology, butterflies and even designed a pair with spiderwebs on rose branches that are composed of crystals.

Celebrities spotted on the pink carpet included P Diddy, Russell Simmons, Michelle Trachtenberg, John Stamos, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian and Martha Stewart.
