Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2012: From Justin Bieber and Rihanna to Goddesses and Glamour, Get a Sneak Peek at Tonight’s Show (PHOTOS)

A History of Hotness
A look back at highlights from the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show over the years.
Glitter, glamour and model goddesses will hit the silver screen when Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs tonight.

As 40 of the world’s top models strut the catwalk, Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars will perform during the hour-long skin-baring spectacle.

And to get you excited for tonight’s big event, we’re reviewing all the highlights from the lingerie extravaganza, which took place in New York City earlier this fall.

Taking a cue from the scantily-clad Angels — like Adriana Lima, Miranda Kerr and Doutzen Kroes — RiRi rocked lingerie-inspired looks. As she belted out her chart-climbing single “Diamonds,” the songbird shimmied in a floor-length black gown, with a high slit revealing a garter belt. Rihanna later returned in a short, pale-pink, see-through lace number, flaunting her endless pins alongside the models.

ADressed in head-to-toe white, Bieber broke it down with “As Long as You Love Me,” but slowed it down for an acoustic rendition of “Beauty and a Beat.” And a suited-up Mars sang two tracks off his upcoming Unorthodox Juxebox album, “Locked Out of Heaven” and “Young Girls.”

The show — which Victoria’s Secret has been running annually since 1995 — was split into six themed segments this year: Circus — complete with acrobats and Lima as a ringmaster; Dangerous Liaisons; Pink Is Us; Silver Screen Angels; Angels in Bloom; and Calendar Girls.

And Alessandra Ambrosio had her moment in the spotlight as she paraded down the catwalk in the $2.5 million jeweled Floral Fantasy Bra, encrusted with amethysts, rubies, sapphires and a large center diamond.

The 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs tonight on CBS. But enjoy our sneak peek of all the show-stopping performances, statuesque Angels and glitzy lingerie styles in our gallery.
Will you tune in tonight?
