Last night, Victoria's Secret held its annual runway show (to be broadcast on CBS, November 30) at the Lexington Avenue Armory, offering up over-the-top outfits on slinky models. This year's theme was "A Night Of A Thousand Fantasies," and apparently soccer, race car driving, and Rainbow Brite style stockings are among them. But don't think it's all sequins, feathers and lace—it's also WORK. Model Alessandra Ambrosio said, "I called my trainer 15 days ago and started doing the Brazilian butt lift, which is lots of ankle weights. Yesterday, I was lifting 30 pounds on each leg. I was like, dying. But you get immediate results. Your bum gets way more round."

Last week, the NY Times looked at the grueling world of casting the Victoria's Secret fashion show and here's video of the final casting:

The big name models this year included Adriana Lima (who lost 50 pounds after giving birth), Karolina Kurkova, and Chanel Iman, and Katy Perry and Akon performed. The AP, though, missed veteran Angels Heidi Klum, Miranda Kerr and Doutzen Kroes who were "warmer."
