The show, which cost a WHOPPING £12 million to produce, was a fun, energetic bundle of the world's most lust-after women flaunting elaborate jewels and, of course, extravagant underwear.
Karlie Kloss also featured at the show, seen here in the Calendar Girls section as a Thanksgiving Native American
Long-serving Angel, Alessandra Ambrosio, who first started working for the industry in 2004, was chosen to model the 2012 Floral Fantasy Bra, which is a bejewelled bra, lavished in sapphires, rubies, and pink and yellow diamonds.

Rihanna performed in lingerie-inspired pieces, and performed her hit single 'Diamonds' and new track, Fresh Off the Runway ( fits in, I suppose).
