The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show made its big China debut, with Angels powering down the catwalk at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai last night.

Despite a few hiccups — including model Ming Xi slipping on stage — the show carried on. This year's show also featured eight Chinese models, up from four last year, which set a new record.

The fabulously blinged out "Fantasy Bra" was worn by Brazilian model Lais Ribeiro. The USD2 million set was encrusted with nearly 6,000 gems and made by Swiss company Mouawad.
