One of the biggest events in the fashion world - Victoria's Secret's 20th anniversary show took place on Tuesday 10th November. Though CBS will broadcast it only on 8th of December (almost a month after the actual show), it doesn't mean you cannot have some sneaky peeky into what's happened during the show.

The show took place in New York City, at the same location as the first ever Victoria's Secret fashion show in 1995. The show began with Pat Benatar's song called Heartbreaker.

Rihanna was supposed to perform at the fashion show but she cancelled it for concentrating on finishing her studio album "Anti". So, Ellie Goulding performed instead of her, along with Selena Gomez and The Weeknd who were performing in VS show for the first time.

Overall, 47 models walked the runway during the show in 75 different looks. VS veteran walkers super models Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima were taking part in the show with some new beginners such as Gigi Hadid. Gigi was chosen to take part in the show during  the VS casting. Gigi had her whole life dream come true. Here's the picture of the moment when she learnt about the decision.

Another debutant of the show was Gigi's best friend Kendall Jenner. Kendall's parents Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner were among the guests supporting their daughter.

Angel Lily Aldridge was chosen to wear the Fantasy Bra of the show which was a $2 million demi-bra of 18-karat gold, covered with 6,500 diamonds, blue topaz, yellow sapphires and other precious stones designed by Mouavad Jewelry.

Swarovski was one of the show sponsors, supporting Parisian couturier Serkan Cura to create a sparkling corset with over 90,000 gold, red, emerald and blue crystal beads and pendants. Martha Hunt was wearing it with Angel wings embellished with over 20,000 crystals and 130 feet of LED lights. Hunt admitted that it was very difficult for her, she had to train for the show wearing a heavy vest and walking in high heels.

Maria Borges was the first model ever to walk the VS runway with her natural hair. This was her third catwalk: during the previous two she was wearing hair extensions.

There was a special section for Pink, the younger sister brand of Victoria's Secret with the parade of surfers, astronauts, policewomen, and firewomen.

And, of course, to create a snow-fantasy atmosphere there was white confetti raining down on the audience and on the stage. 

The show ended with the models dancing on the stage with Selena Gomez and the Weeknd singing.
