The Angels have landed! Lily, Alessandra and Miranda take the front row at Victoria's Secret fashion show viewing party

Earlier this month, they all strutted their stunning stuff at the yearly Victoria's Secret Fashion show in New York.

But Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio and Miranda Kerr didn't look any less lovely as they arrived at a special viewing party tonight as the show aired on U.S. television.
The models, who are known as the 'Victoria's Secret Angels' showed off their enviable figures at the Segerstrom Centre For The Arts in Costa Mesa, California.

Miranda Kerr, 28, looked especially stunning in a low cut strapless leopardskin dress and black shoes, while 30-year-old Alessandra wore an unusual silver and gold embellished mini dress with nude heels.
Lily, 26, meanwhile, showed off her long legs in a dark pink mini dress and black peep toe shoes.

The glamorous trio then settled down on a couch to watch themselves on the runway, with a few pink cocktails in front of them.

The show was a star studded event, with appearances from Kanye West, Jay-Z and Adam Levine, while Beyonce was spotted watching from the front row.

Costing $12 million to stage, the fashion spectacular was overflowing with acres of bare flesh as the angels model the lingerie brand's latest collection.

According to WWD, the New York show takes a full year to plan - and a small army to bring to fruition, including designers, seamstresses, embroiderers and prop makers.

Rihanna Set To Debut Armani Fashion Line

Twenty-three year old Rihanna will be releasing her own fashion line through Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans.

A spoke model for Armani, singer Rihanna will now debut a new clothing line that the Umbrella songstress designed herself, according to The Boombox. The Armani collection, that falls under Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans, will feature some of the well known articles of clothing Rihanna enjoys wearing.

Set to hit stores this coming month, the line will include some of Rihanna's must have pieces fans have seen the star don before. As seen on the Vogue website, the “capsule collection” will feature lingerie, t-shirts with the singer’s face, biker jackets, and denim, some with a signature ‘R’ embroidered on it.

Also revealed by Vogue, the Rihanna fashion line plans to sell “a canvas rucksack, jeans in two different styles and sets of lace underwear that come in navy blue and pearl grey.”

A spokesperson for Armani has reportedly issued a statement about Rihanna’s soon to be released fashion line. “Hugely talented and extremely feminine, Rihanna is known for her amazing verve and incredible energy – qualities which make her the perfect choice to project and interpret the youthful, modern and captivating spirit of Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans. Positive with a slightly rock feel, fabulously sexy with a strong masculine edge.”

Surprising many, Rihanna’s new line is thought to be much less risqué and sexy than most expected. Going for a modest look, the Armani collection from the singer is sure to sell fast.
