Music’s biggest stars collided with scantily-clad supermodels at the annual taping of “The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City yesterday. Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Maroon 5 provided the soundtrack to the fashionable affair.
After canceling his 2007 appearance following the sudden death of his mother Donda West, Kanye took the stage and dedicated his performance to the most important woman in his life. “I lost my superhero, but now she’s my superangel,” he told the crowd.
Wearing a Versace for H&M jacket and tight leather pants, Yeezy then performed “Stronger” as Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr (wearing the $2.5 million Fantasy Treasure Bra), and other Victoria’s Secret Angels strutted down the catwalk in their lingerie and angel wings. He was joined by the other half of The Throne, Jay-Z, for “Ni**as in Paris” as a beaming Beyoncé looked on.
Nicki Minaj closed out the evening with “Super Bass,” bringing a blast of color and confetti to the runway while dancing with the supermodels during their final walk. All the models and performers returned to the stage for the finale.
“The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” will be broadcast on Tuesday, November 29, at 10 p.m. on CBS.
