The spectacular show that was filmed in New York City on November 10, was the hottest ticket in town! With 47 Victoria's Secret Angels, including longtime favorites Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio and newer hot models such as Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner (yes, Gigi's mother Yolanda Foster of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fame and Kendall's parents Kris Kardashian and Caitlyn Jenner were all there in the front row to support their daughters).
The show itself was nothing short of jaw dropping. There were six themes (Boho Psychadelic, Exotic Butterflies, Portrait of an Angel, Pink USA, Ice Angel and Fireworks). More than twenty of the individual looks from the themes featured Swarovski crystals. These were our favorites:
The show-stopping piece from the "Fireworks Collection" (the finale collection), was designed by Parisian couture designer Serkan Cura. It was designed using more than 90,000 Swarovski crystals beads, stones and pendants sewn onto a 22 pound corset! The corset, worn by model Martha Hunt featured crystal shades of golds, reds, emeralds, blues and patinas. The LED lit angel wings (designed by Killer) were also embellished using over 20,000 Swarovski crystals.

Take a look at more bejeweled Swarovski crystal designs from the "Fireworks Collection":
The "Ice Angels" was a hot (yet cool) collection! Kendall Jenner and other Angels rocked bodysuits and luxe winter themed outfits that contain the new Swarovski edelweiss crystals (in commemoration of Swarovski's 120th anniversary this year).
In addition to the amazing designs, Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding and The Weekend all performed their hit songs live on stage amidst the models strutting the catwalk!
And while Swarovski crystal was all over the runway it was also back stage. Each Angel had her own Fashion Show Robe embellished with Swarovski crystals to wear while getting ready!
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show at the end of the day may be about selling lingerie to the masses. But with when you mix in Swarovski's partnership and the extravagantly embellished costumes, the show becomes about art, couture fashion and over the top glamour!
This is Swarovski's thirteenth year of partnership with Victoria's Secret to literally ROCK the runway. The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show aired on December 8 on CBS.
