It’s showtime!  The 69th Regiment Armory in NYC was all a-buzz as guests and media waited for the lingerie-clad struts of the famous Victoria’s Secret models.  And what a show it was!  The entire show was a celebration of glitz and glamour from the musical performances of Kanye West and Jay-Z, Maroon 5, and Nicki Minaj,  to the magically  outrageous costume designs.  This year’s show collections fell into 6 themes:  Super Angels, Ballet, Passion, Angels Aquatic, I Put a Spell on You and Club Pink.
