Victoria's Secret's 2010 Fashion Show is pretty much the most fun thing ever. That's our conclusion after checking out tonight's live spectacle, which was filmed for television—the program will air nationwide on November 30th at 10 p.m. ET on CBS—and included performances by Akon and Katy Perry.
Name your favorite VS Angel—Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, even Karolina Kurkova, she of the longest legs ever—and she was there, strutting her stuff in motocross-inspired burnout looks, athletic inspired get-ups (wrestling, anyone?), country girl gingham (this is the first fashion show we've ever seen set to country music), or Rainbow Brite-esque plastic-fantastic girly-girl gear. Over-the-top in the very best way possible, even the angel-theme went above and beyond—this year a bit more serious and less pastel, less Cupid and more Gabriel if you know what we mean.
