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.

Several supermodels were spotted on the runway, including Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Lily Aldridge, Josephine Skriver, Behati Prinsloo, Bella Hadid (but no Gigi), Jasmine Tookes, Candice Swanepoel, Stella Maxwell, Elsa Hosk, Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio, Martha Hunt and Taylor Hill.
Musical guests Harry Styles, Miguel, Leslie Odom Jr. and Jane Zhang provided the soundtrack for the evening (sans Katy Perry), along with Chinese pianist Li Yundi on the keys.
