As a nor'easter bore down on the metro area, Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars hit the runway, along with a host of heavenly bods done up in glittery angels' wings -- and not much else -- for the Victoria's Secret fashion show, an exclusive, annual event and all-around sexcapade held Wednesday night at the 69th Regiment Armory in Manhattan.
"U aint gotta be tall to sing to some super models . . . or do u?" the pint-size Mars tweeted pre-show. (He managed just fine.)
The show, airing on CBS Dec. 4, featured the brand's hottest models, including Karlie Kloss, Erin Heatherton (recently de-DiCaprio'd and now single, guys), Adriana Lima (just two months after delivering baby Sienna) and Alessandra Ambrosio, strutting in a Floral Fantasy bra and matching belt encrusted with 5,200 gems and designed by Manhasset-based London Jewelers. The price tag: $2.5 million.
"It's a really fun show to do," says London owner Candy Udell, whose firm has designed the uber-pricy push-up two years in a row.
It did look like they were having fun, from Bieber, high-fiving New York Knicks' Tyson Chandler, sitting front row, to Mars, singing his latest single, "Young Girls," about shoulder height to every gal on the runway, to Rihanna, smokin' hot and holding her own amid the catwalk beauties, belting out "Diamonds" and striding down the runway hand-in-hand with Victoria's Secret model Doutzen Kroes.
Hot highlights: Izabel Goulart's scanty, sparkly snake charmer suit, Heatherton's circus light angel wings, and Ambrosio in that gemstone bra, worn with the biggest orchids you've ever seen.
Even better: Victoria's Secret and CBS donated $1 million each to hurricane relief.
