Probably the only fashion show straight men actually want to watch, The Victoria's Secret runways shine with celebrities, musicians and, of course, models.
During Wednesday night's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in New York, Kanye West took the stage in a surprise performance. The rapper was supposed to perform at the lingerie show four years ago, but had to cancel after losing his mother, Dr. Donda West. Kanye's mom suffered complications from a cosmetic surgery procedure.
West took the stage at Manhattan's Lexington Avenue Armory and told the crowd:
"In 2007, I was supposed to perform this song... then my mom passed away. She was my superhero - now she's my super-angel."
Kanye then rocked the audience with his massive hit, Stronger, which he dedicated to his late mother. And if Kanye himself wasn't enough of a surprise, he was then joined onstage by Jay Z, his close friend and collaborator on his latest album, Watch The Throne. The two performed N—gas in Paris, a hit from the disc. The crowd went cray.
But the night didn't end with Kanye. Nicki Minaj and Maroon 5's Adam Levine also took the stage. Levine sang his hit, Moves Like Jagger. He also escorted Anne Vyalitsyna, his supermodel girlfriend, down the catwalk. “It was a Victoria’s Secret idea, God bless them," said Vyalitsina at the after-party at the Dream Downtown. "We didn’t want to steal from the show because it’s not about us, and we just tried to have fun and make it as cute as we could."
Another highlight of the show was Miranda Kerr and her enviously amazing post-baby bod. I look at her, then I look at me, and I just wonder how it's possible we're the same species.
Here's how insane Miranda Kerr's body is. She was wearing a bra made from $2.5 million worth of diamonds, and no one noticed. We were all too busy staring at her and wondering what the hell.
Kanye and Jay Z kicked off their Watch The Throne tour last week in Atlanta. They made a stop in North Carolina and then took the stage at Madison Square Garden on Monday night.
"I came here [to New York] with some beats in my pocket and I was too scared to even talk to Jay-Z because he was my f-cking idol," West said. "Now I'm on a stage with him. That shows you that dreams can come true."
Please tune-in to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on November 29th at 10pm on CBS.
